Fun process of creating websites!

In 2007, I created my first website using IWEB with a good friend of our family who is a computer programmer.   He knows that I enjoy using computer software and the web for just about everything in my life inside and outside of the office.  I remember thinking about the kind of site I would create for singles.  I imagined that it is important to show the singles community who we are in the coaching world and gain their care, trust and feelings of being able to work with us.  I started to think about the photos I would use from our wedding, then the ways we were expressing to them how we could help them to get married.  There are lots of concepts and thinking that goes on in terms of the kind of business that is being created outside and inside the website.  People need to have the actual experience in being there with you in your business while viewing your site.  This is exactly what I have been learning all of these years.  Business is for the clients.  It is the way we service them.

It is very important to think about the traffic, marketing, clientele, color scheme, appearance, ftp files, domain names, hosting, email, payment options and much more before creating a perfect site.  There are constant changes that are made throughout the life of a website.  It is lots of fun to create! Websites are not just marketing tools on the web.  It is a virtual presence where people can interact with your business on the web by purchasing products, services and even downloading free stuff.

How is traffic created on the web?  We set up profiles using social media such as Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, Myspace etc.   We attach the code to the sites to cause interaction between the sites and the social media for people to view our advertisements.  We also have to install optimization.

Now that it is 2011, I have been exposed to such interesting and fun stuff on the web.  There are tons of exciting websites out there, and I am so happy to be part of this new information age world we live in today.  I am already creating lots of fun sites using another software on the web called wordpress, which is a really great user-friendly web design product.  I have created these sites for my businesses such as - Virtual Assistant Site & - Dating Site  I expect to get to the level of creating websites with Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks and other more sophisticated software very soon.  I am currently teaching myself html coding.  So yes, I am pretty excited about my newest career objectives.  The production of websites for world businesses!
