Web Design 101:
There are a number of different steps to creating a website...
1. First, and most important, is having something to say (or
2. Next, you need a catchy domain name.
A domain is your website's address. Try to think of something short
because you want your guests to be able to remember it and be able
to type it in their browser easily. It also helps your page rank
if you include a key word (or words) that identify what your site
is about. Once you decide on a domain name you need to register it.
(I can help you set this up.)
3. After you have a registered domain name, the next step is to
find a host. This is where your domain name finds the pages
of your site to display. There are all sorts of host companies out
there from free (usually with a bunch of annoying pop-up ads) to
really good ones like the website
I use. (I can help you set this up too.)
4. Once you have a domain name, a place to host,
and your information and photos ready to go, the next step is design.
This is where I come in.
5. Finally, comes promotion. Submit to search engines
and online directories.Try to get other websites (especially related
ones) to link to you. Tell everyone about your site and list your
website's address on all of your promotional material.
I look forward to helping you develop and maintain your new site.
In addition to website design I can also provide custom illustration (graphics, banners, buttons, and even animation) to help your website be one-of-a-kind.
Consider me a one-stop-source for all of your creative needs.
