What Is the First Step in Getting a Website Built?

The First Step is always to pick up the phone or drop us an email and let us know a little bit about your business. We will answer any questions you have, and then guide you through the process from that point onwards.

If you would like to do a little bit of prep before talking to us, then the following tasks aren’t essential, but they might help to get you thinking about your website or some questions to ask us:

  • Ask yourself “Why Does My Business Need a Website?” or “How Can a Website Benefit My Business?”
  • Research your competitors. Whether they are a physical “Brick & Mortar” business or an online service/sales provider, have a look at their websites.
  • If possible look for an opportunity or “Point of Difference”. Maybe your competitors don’t even have a website, and being the first in your industry to get online is going to give you a great competitive advantage. Perhaps there is a way of providing your products or services online that you can think of, that others aren’t yet doing.
  • It may not be possible to identify a “Point of Difference”, so the next step is to look at your competitors and identify those who you think are doing things well. When you contact us we will be able to provide additional insights into your competitor’s websites to determine how many visitors they are getting and how people are finding them.

If you engage our services then we will most likely be doing the above anyway. But you know your business better than anyone, and getting your input is invaluable. It is just the beginning, but that little bit of research is an excellent starting point towards us creating a website for you that will get the results you want.
