Build my first website

The best way to approach your first website is to ask yourself some important questions.

1. What do you want your website to do?

Whether you want it to be an online business card, an online information brochure, or a full shop for users to purchase from, you need to set down your aims.

2. When do you want your site up and running?

Generally speaking you will want to set up a time line for getting your website up and running. A month at the shortest, three months for a more complex site (although some large sites can take up to six months to get going)

Another time line to establish, is your ROI break even point, or how long before your site ‘pays you back’.

3. What is your budget?

Decide how much you want to spend on the entire website, then break that total into portions.
A general rule of thumb for the initial costs are:

20% on the look of the site : Website Design

45% on making the website work: Website Programming

25% on telling people you’re there: Website Promotion

10% on the Whoops! category: Things you didn’t think of when you began.

4. Coming soon!

All of these points will help your website developer give you an accurate quote
