Why You Need Web Site Development & Internet Consulting with A CyberMarketing Edge
Design alone and computer programming alone do not make an effective Web site for a business. The site design and development should be based upon savvy cybermarketing expertise. This is a specialized field of marketing, which is unique and continually evolving. Remember that your Web site is a powerful marketing tool, and that there are different rules for creating marketing materials on the Web that in traditional print media.

There are design limitations on the Internet (including limitations on colors, sizes of graphics for download, etc.), and many elaborately-designed web sites are not designed to work with lower level browsers.

Many Web sites do not give visitors the information they are looking for, or make it hard to find the information visitors are looking for. Or the Web sites use special programming that requires a special plug-in, or that requires the newest version of a browser, thus making it impossible for some visitors to access and/or use the information on the site.

You need to design to the lowest common denominator of those visiting your Web site, remembering that visitors come from different kinds of computers and different versions of browsers. Also, be sure to break up your text into small sections and have lots of subtitles to make your page easy to read on the computer screen.


Other Web Site Development Considerations include:
  • the importance of titling the home page and other pages correctly in order to maximize the opportunity to be listed in search engines
  • the use of keywords in your page content to attract traffic to your site through the search engines
  • including your web site address on your web pages in case people print out those pages and keep them for future reference
  • being careful about reverse type since it has been determined in studies that reverse type is very hard for the eye to read. And, of course, if someone wants to print your web page and it has reverse type, it may not print at all.
  • Once you get your web site up, you need to properly promote your web site, not only on the Internet, but to the extensive media contacts that focus on Internet news. You also need to try to get other sites to link to you. So, be sure to have in your Web site development budget some marketing dollars to promote your Web site. So many people develop a Web site and think that the traffic and business will just automatically come. This is not true. It takes marketing, both online and offline, to get traffic to your Web site.
