|Why do I need a Web Site and How do I
Why do I need a Web Site?
Normally, the worst reason for doing anything is "because
everyone else is..."
However, if you're marketing a product or service and you
are NOT advertising where your competition is, you'll find
yourself left behind very suddenly.
In the past, when your customers were looking for a product
or service, their easiest option would be to pull out the
Yellow Pages to search for a store or company in their area
that provided the product or service they were in need of.
Sometimes this supplied a name and phone number. Sometimes,
an address. On more rare occasions, a picture advertisement
with a list of services or products.
With the Internet today, that same customer can go to a
search engine or index and be presented with a list of
businesses that fit their needs, with links to their web
pages. Those web pages are loaded with product pictures and
price lists, maps and phone numbers, and even online
Shopping Cart system which allows the customer to order
products and services--all without ever having to leave the
house or office.
Perhaps you have a "service" oriented practice such as
accounting, law, or medicine that's already doing well and
you're wondering why you should burden yourself with the
added expense of a Web site. Simply put, not having a web
site will soon be like not having a listing in your local
Yellow Pages. In the Web world, this is referred to as a
"corporate presence." Even if your best business comes by
word-of-mouth, your potential customers may want to check
you out. A well-designed, professional web site can give you
added visibility and credibility. Especially if you provide
a public service and your gold is to get information to a
large number of people almost instantaneously. Additionally,
the cost of maintaining a Web site is probably the most cost
effective advertising you'll ever do.
The Internet is one of the first places a person who has
access to a computer will go to get information. As one
source put it, "the Internet 'IS' information." Whether it's
information on Hepatitis C or a specific product or service,
the World Wide Web is *the* place your customers look to for
OK, I need a web site ……what do I do now?
· First, you need to decide what information you would like
to offer on your site. This can be as brief as one page
describing who you are, where your are, what you do, and how
to contact you, or it can be as comprehensive as you wish.
You can include as many pages as you like describing your
products and services or offering information you feel is
relative to the needs of your customers and the general

There are two ways of getting a "server" ….
1. Set up a computer in-house dedicated to Internet service.
Generally speaking, only the largest companies have the
resources to maintain an in-house server. This option
requires 24 hour maintenance, a programmer and high speed
communication lines. This is an expensive proposition.
2. Rent a virtual server from an existing Internet Service
Provider. By far the most common and least expensive way to
get your web page out there is to rent space on another
server. This is called a "virtual server".
Your next step is to publish your Web site to the server you
have chosen. If you'd like, we'll give you your new Web site
already to go on a disk. You can take it from there and go
to the company of your choice to host your Web site. Or, we
can take care of that for you, too! We offer Web hosting
services through various web hosting companies. They offer
fast, reliable Internet connections with servers dedicated
strictly to Web hosting.
Once your web site is up and running, there will still be
maintenance issues. Your services or prices may change. You
may want to add pages or other services. Perhaps you need to
make a few changes in the text of your pages. If you have
someone in your company who is able to do this for you,
you're all set. If not, you'll need someone to take care of
these things for you. We can do that too! For a small
monthly fee, we will take care of your site and see that it
is kept up to date and that all elements are working
