A Business Website - What do you need?

Step Two -
First: what do you need?
Second: what don't you need?
Third: resources and goals?

If you are creating a business website for your organization, in spite of all the things you have heard about what you need for a website, you Do Not Need more than your man-power resources can support.

It makes no sense to pay someone (or let a volunteer) set up a website that has more functions than you have man-power to manage.

You can quite easily buy into paying for a "really cool" website, or letting someone start a facebook, or buying an email system. Then find out those things don't fit your methods.

I have seen that many times.

My philosophy is to start small.

Start with what you are doing now and add in one thing at a time. When your staff has that part under control, then add the next thing you want.

Of course, web design companies can make more money selling you an elaborate package, but I am just too frugal in nature to go for that. My suggestion is to instead start small, and add things one at a time. As your team demonstrates their ability to manage the parts they have, then add the next thing.

It is cheaper this way, and makes for a more smooth and stable growth into your online presence. However, in some instances it maybe cheaper (and far more efficient) to hire an outside contractor to manage your website and web presence.

You need a goal. There are many. If your number one goal is not to build your business you need to rethink your goals.
  • You don't need: Facebook, Twitter, a blog or a Youtube channel. Unless you fully understand how to use them for your business. All those things are good, but they do require a bit of work.
  • You don't even need an easy to maintain website, unless you are going to keep it up-to-date.
  • You don't need an online directory or a "members only" section, unless you can manage it.
What you do need is a plan, and an understanding of what you want to do.
