Why do you need a website and what you want from it?
What do you want the website to do, what’s its purpose, and why do you need it? It might be that you need a website to be an online business card or advertisement? Your competition has websites and you need to be online to compete? You might want to promote an organisation or to display and sell the products and services you offer to a whole new online market?
There could be lots of reasons to have a website, but it helps to set a goal or an objective and to understand what you want from a website. It helps with focus and ultimately means you are more likely to build the web site you want and need.
