Also known as "Brochure Sites" due to the fact that the content is static like a printed brochure.
The Brochure Site is designed to ‘brand’ your business, and inform your customers about your products and services. It provides a professional look and feel to inspire confidence and is a first point of contact where potential customers can find out about you, where you are located, and your contact information. You use it to build your company image and customer confidence so they take the next step to contact you about your products and/or services.
You can include photos, downloadable forms, documents, and product brochures.
Our website is a classic example of a static web site.
These are web sites with content that changes, or is updated, regularly. They may provide all the information that a static web site does, plus they have the ability to regularly update or add new content.
Typical uses can be providing news, a web log ( blog ), forums, opportunities to leave comments, polls, and much more.
Dynamic web sites do require a certain amount of work to manage, but if the web site is designed around a Content Mangement System such as Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal, Textpattern, or one of the hundreds of others, it is a reasonably easy task.
E-commerce websites can be utilised in two basic ways.
One, you can sell products and services directly to any person that arrives at your site, and take payment using a payment gateway, or a payment service such as PaylPal or PayMate.
Two, you can use them to take orders for your products and services from your existing account customers, by providing them with a username and password to log in with. The order then just becomes part of your normal process cycle and you bill as you normally do. example - Industrial Stationers
Web Site Benefits
Having a web presence will give you an extra advertising method for your business. Also a branded web address will project a more professional image.
For example, if your business name is 'Joes Garage', a web address of 'www.joes-garage.com.au' will look more professional than 'joesgarage.somehosting.com.au'. It also advertises your business every time you give out your email address as you could use 'email@example.com' which mirrors your web address and business name.
