What does it take to have a successful online website?
From identifying your target market niche to branding. From keyword research to analytics. From social media to calls-to-action.
Yes, there is a lot to think about and plan. And you need to educate yourself on how it all works. Whether you outsource these services or hire an employee to manage this, you need to know the best practices so you don't end up wasting time and money. Be careful when choosing vendors. Do your due diligence. Google the company, read reviews and check with the BBB. If you have a problem, what recourses do you have? Make sure you get a written contract on what is expected for what amount of money and that everything is clear. Be careful when hiring family or friends. Remember these old stand-bys still hold true...
You get what you pay for.
