IMPROVING YOUR WEBSITE

PART 1    -      FEBRUARY 2017

WEBSITE

This is where you need to take the time to completely review your website and decide how you want it to look, what the function is of your site, who you want to attract, and what you need to do or change and improve it.

If you feel that you need a completely new website, this is the time to do it or plan to do it soon. If you only feel that you need to only make small changes by updating the images, revamp the copy and improve the overall experience of the visitor, that is acceptable too, but there are some guidelines to consider, so the task questionnaire below has been set up to help you identify your strengths and weaknesses.

You do not necessarily need to spend money on a new website as there are many free websites available that could host your site, and there are even sites that you can add on certain services such as transaction/web shops at an additional small cost. 

What you mainly need to spend on this, is your time!

Download the below questionnaire and type your answers next to each question to help you make a decision about the next steps you need to take for your website.
