Things to Look for When Going for Your First Website
 
Operations, administration, sales, and networking keep business owners occupied. Therefore it is not a surprise that owning a website comes far down in their list of priorities. A 2013 Yodle survey discovered that 52 per cent small businesses in America do not have a website.
 
The numbers are puzzling. By not owning a website, businesses are missing out on many sales opportunities.
 
Many businesses complain of a lack of technical knowledge, when they are asked why their company lacks a website. They grudge that they do not know adequately about the internet and how websites function to hire a professional developer, or service.
 
This article aims to help them. It lists four things to look for when you are going to build (or hire a web design company) to build your first website:  
 
It is going to take time.  
 
If you planning to get a functional website, let your designer and developer take time. Talk to your family, friends, and acquaintances. They may tell you useful things on how long does it takes to design a business-friendly website.  
 
You will have to put in some effort.  
 
You may require a few approvals from your local or state authorities. Browse the internet, or consult your developers what approvals you will need to have.  
 
Do not forget copyright.
 
Your website may need images and videos. You cannot just copy them from the internet. So you may need to use that powerful camera in your smartphone. It is good to ask the IT consulting service how they are going to upload those images.
 
It is going to cost as much as you want.  
 
Graphic work and special features (e-commerce, newsletter services) increase costs. Make a list of features you want. Talk to your developers what you need, note down their quote, and then shop around to compare figures and features.  
 
Invest in a long-term relationship
 
Your website can be attacked, hacked, or it may refuse to function at all. Problems can happen long after your website has been constructed. Choose to work with people who provide long-term technical assistance.  
 
A lot of your fears about owning a website can vanish if you know the time period it is going to take to develop the entire project, the costs, your tasks, and the assurance of dedicated customer service support.
