There’s no arguing that having a website for your business is a must. However, these days there are so many do-it-yourself website creation sites out there that many feel there’s no need to hire a professional. Now while there might be a small fraction of people out there who can do just fine with a homemade site, most people who are running a business for profit will benefit immensely by having a professional do it for them.
There is much thought that goes into any new website, and the larger your site and the more features it has the more planning will be needed to ensure your goals are met. But before we jump into determining your website needs, let’s start with the needs of your customers.
It is important to realize your website is not for you. You are not marketing to yourself – you are marketing to potential customers. You are not trying to sell products and services to yourself – you want THEM to buy from you. To do this you need to know how to appeal to them. What are their needs that you can serve with the products and/or services you offer? […]

If you have determined your website is due for a redesign, now is the time to start setting your goals for it. Before you think about color schemes, visual eye candy, or even a budget, determining what your website goals are will help guide all other aspects of the planning and design of the site. Yes, even before determining your budget, you should set your goals. Then based on your budget, you can scale your goals accordingly.
I speak to a lot of business owners about their websites. There is a surprising variety of goals that I hear from these business owners as to what they are seeking. While I’m no fan of design by committee, I do see that most of the best goal setting for a website redesign comes from a company where multiple staff or department heads are consulted. Different departments have different vantage points on the business and thus can see different needs that may not be obvious to others – even the business owner.
To give you a head start on ideas for your goals, I’ll give you a peak into some of the most common goals I’ve heard from clients during my 17 years with NetSource: […]
While the age of a website is a good indicator of whether it is time for it to be redesigned, in truth there are more indicators to consider. Like us humans, some websites age better than others. You can be 100 years old and still run a marathon (it’s very rare, but it’s been done) or 20 years old and an out of shape couch potato (probably not as rare, unfortunately). A well designed site from a reputable development company can have a much longer and more productive lifespan than a poorly designed website. That said, you should do a health report on your website each year to make sure it is still performing at it’s best for you.
