Before you start a website

If you've researched and planned your web project this article may not be for you, but if you've just come up with your next idea, here's a few tips that may aide you in your business future.

Content may seem like a common and reoccurring topic in your research. That's because the importance of quality content cannot be under valued. Your content is the engine and fuel of your website and it's required before you begin the process of creating a website.

I suggest some sort of task management, whether that's through an app, crm, paper, etc. Whatever it is it must have some function of checking off tasks as you complete them. This is especially helpful with organizing your work and knowing how you want your website to function. And when you get stuck, and you will, this list will help you refocus and push forward.

Imagery


Website building is really, and I can’t say it enough, all about content. The first piece of this content is most likely your text content, however, your images play a crucial role in page rankings and more. Quality images provide a sense of comfort snd authority to your users and that’s a aspect all websites should try and achieve. 

Your imagery must also be relevant to your text, or the text the individual picture is presented with. Relevancy is the second piece to improving your page rank and overall website quality. 

There are a few more things that you should have before you begin a website, and I’ll address those in another article later. But these should be what you start with and work most on throughout the life of your website.

On the other end of the spectrum however are full stack developer/designers who can command anywhere from $50 - $100 per hour. 
This price model can be tough for smaller businesses who need the experience of a full stack developer but dont have the budget to acquire one. This is the position most small to medium sized businesses find themselves in a world more and more internet dependent. 
If you have a decent sized budget, $1000 - $2500, you can estimate your per hour cost with a simple equation.1 page = 4 hours x Price/per hour. This is all based on you having your content already written out.
I personally prefer the milestone method. This process starts by taking the time to fully understand the needs your business has for a website. I then take the 10 years …

What is an EPK?

EPKs are a perfect solution for entertainers looking to break into the online space. Coupled with a social media presence and good self promotion, an EPK changes how you present yourself.
