Web Design and Promotion
hints and tips for your site
and internet glossary
Web design and website promotion can be difficult. Most people need
information, instructions, help, tips and hints for their DIY page building plus an internet glossary ! This site has been designed to help you design your own website!
It's not a project for the faint hearted but stick with it and you will produce some great results! We have not attempted to give you instructions on the use of software, there are manuals available to help you with this, but we have provided lots of information and hints that are not easily found anywhere else!
The most important tips we can give you are detailed below. If you design around these basic rules you can be successful! Always consider the following ideals: - A site should be:
- Found easily and quickly
- Fast to access
- Functional in all resolutions
All you really need to start is:
Web space (BT like many ISP's gives its members 10 Mb free which is enough for a site 10 times this big!)
Authoring software ( Windows 95 and Windows 98 come with Front Page Express as standard)
Time and Patience! Time and Patience! Time and Patience!
The design and promotion of websites can be confusing due to the unfamiliar terminology and technical jargon often used which is why an internet glossary of terms is so helpful:
"It's like learning a new language!"
To help eliminate this frustration, and enable you to understand the elements that you need to consider when building your own website we have included lots of useful instructions and information to show you how to translate and understand the language of the web ! And understanding successful promotion. If in doubt to refer to the internet glossary.
