Here are some basic suggestions:
Discuss with your associates, and write down your reasons
for deciding to have a new website built, and your expectations.
Perhaps your needs are very basic, and a template site is
adequate for your purposes and budget. Or, you may decide
that you need an original design and/or some custom features.
Wherever you are on the continuum, bear in mind that during
the weeks or months that your website is under contruction,
you will be working closely with the company you choose. It's
important that you feel comfortable interacting with the people
who are producing your site.
When in doubt, keep it simple. Unless you have a good
reason for using Flash on your homepage, it's usually best
to keep it to a minimum, or not use it at all. Flash usually
does not contribute to a corporate image.
Think about doing some remodeling in your home. Your contractor
knows how to help you identify your vision and to build it.
But, ultimately, it is YOUR vision. Often your web developer
can guide you in developing your content, and suggest the
best methods for presenting your product or service. However,
even if you use a professional copywriter, you will need to
provide the information about your business, and make the
decisions about your visual display. To be proud and happy
about the final product, you will need to participate.
