web design, consulting and hosting
in january of 2000, there were about 10 million sites on the web, by
2002 there will be an estimated hundred million sites. the projection
for the on-line population in 2001 is estimated to be 233 million adults.
and the web will still be growing.
as a company, your competition on the web is not limited to your area, and not limited to other companies in your industry. with millions of other sites out there, your competition for your customers' time and attention is - every other web site.
good web design is directed towards the expectations and demands of your (potential) customer. who is this customer? what kind of computer equipment does your customer use? where is your customer located?
web means an international as well as a local approach.
is your company strictly local? do you have products that could be interesting
for other areas, states or countries? where is your target market, and,
again, who is your customer?
design does not necessarily include flashy graphics. design is the tool that lets the customer find what s/he is looking for - fast. design is a statement about your company, and about how seriously you take your customer's wishes.
the worldwideweb is at the same time the most over-estimated and under-estimated
means of marketing communication. the common misconception is to expect
too much in short term revenue and to underestimate the long-term
as a company, you will not have the luxury of contemplating if you want to be on the web. with that rapid growth and the changes in customer behavior you have to advertise that you exist. even on a local basis, customer surf the web to find a shop in their neighborhood. so the question is not: if?, the question is: when - and how?
efficient web design is not easy, and does not come cheap. it is a joint effort between your company and the design company.
