Can I do things in stages and if so where do we start?

Absolutely! A well thought-out web site can be built in stages and the costs spread over a period of time. It's also important to have a flexible design that can grow with you and adapt well to an ever-changing industry.

The first stage is always the Development Plan, which includes:

  • the site map and navigational flow,
  • static elements to be used - such as pictures, art, text;
  • (optional) dynamic elements to be used such as - forms, animation, video, audio;
  • dynamic database development such as - a schedule of events, join our email list, or send notice to mailing list; and
  • (optional) the flow and function of an E-commerce solution.

The second stage is registering your web site address (URL) and obtaining appropriate web hosting services. Your webmaster will usually do this for you. Tip: be sure to register your URL with both the .com and .net extensions. This will give you at minimum two URLs to register with Search Engines and Search Directories. If your business is more of an organization or an aspect of your business is organizational in nature, be sure to register your URL with the .org extension. There are other extensions available and you can discuss the value of these with your webmaster and/or marketing director.

The third stage is the development and production of the site style-the "look" of your website and its navigation elements.

The fourth stage is following the Site Map according to the Development Plan and filling in the text and other static elements.

After that, additional stages are up to you, taking into consideration the recommendations of the webmaster, and updates you decide you would like to add once you see all the things that our Content Management system can do. Modules of dynamic elements can be developed as "add-ons" potentially making a more elaborate web site project more affordable over time.
