What Kind of Site Are You Looking For?

Before you embark on a site design project for your business or organization, you will want to identify what the goals are for your site. This will determine what type of site is best for you.

The best solution for you may have aspects of several different types of sites. For example, it may offer basic brochure pages supplemented by educational content or an online order form. It may be primarily an educational site but also offer opportunities to interact with your customers. We encourage you to visit sites outside of your primary category of interest to get ideas for your site.

Online Business Cards and Brochures

These "first generation" sites offer general company information to generate qualified sales leads. Many of our sites fall into this category, and almost all of our sites include this kind of information. We find it is a solid base for businesses looking for a Web presence.


Information Delivery & Educational Sites

Many businesses supplement their sites with general information to educate their customers. Some businesses and organizations position themselves as experts in their field by including educational content. Still others use the Web as a way to deliver the libraries of information they are charged with distributing. These content-rich sites are our favorite projects to work on!


Online Retail (E-Commerce)

Are you interested in selling a product online? There are a variety of solutions that can help you do that. They range from micro-sites with simple, printable order forms that are ideal for single-product offerings to large, database-driven sites custom designed for large product lines that change frequently.

Community Building

Do you work with a community of people who are geographically widely dispersed? A Web site can be used to reach the whole community and provide opportunities to interact with them or get them involved with organization activities. It can even serve as an activity in and of itself, a forum for the community to work out ideas.

Product/Service Delivery (E-Business)

There are also sites that allow customers to access their information securely online, thereby streamlining a core business function. What customer interactions do you currently conduct offline that might work online? Let us help you explore the options!
