So you're all set up.
Sitting in front of a computer monitor, looking at this webpage.
Sharing information is what the web can do extraordinarily well.
If you've got a site to promote your business, and someone wants to find out about your merchandise or product they are free to visit your website and start reading.
If they are interested enough to want to go to the trouble of filling out a web form and submitting it to your sales department for more information, they are free to do so.
That's what the web is great for.
Now ask yourself
How many times have I gone to a website about power drills because I think they're cool?
What is a web site?
Having a website means anyone connected to the internet through a web browser can type http://www.itsme.com and see your home page.
Now to create that home page.
Developing a website involves lots of detail work. Either you've got the budget to hire the pros, in which case I hope you consider my company's services as well. Or else you've got the interest to learn enough of this to give yourself a web presence cheaply, by building your own.
What will I need?
