Cheerful smiling child at the blackboard.

Ever suddenly get a great idea about making something or doing something that you just know would make tons of money for you, but you’re just not quite sure how to let everyone know?  Or maybe you have a great business already, but aren’t sure of the best way to get the word out.

SpiderByter.com provides website services at affordable prices for individuals and small businesses.

Oh sure, you can start a facebook page and pass out business cards, but will that be enough?  Facebook and other social media sites are a great way to get the word out, but you can’t put everything in a facebook or twitter message.  The best you can hope for in that scenario is to drive traffic to your website so visitors can read all about what interests them in as much detail as is available on your site and to the extent they wish.  Hopefully after a visit to your site they will have the knowledge and inclination to buy your products or seek your services.

Not everyone needs a website and not everyone who wants a website needs to have an elaborate one.  Keep in mind simple is usually better.  Bells and whistles on a website might be entertaining, but will the visitor be more interested in the design or the content.  The best websites deliver graphically pleasing content, but the emphasis is on content.  No matter how well your website is designed, if the content is lacking your visitors will quickly move on.

The Process

Once you have decided having a website is the right thing for you, the next step is to decide if you want a simple reference-brochure style website or a functional site which will be constantly (or at least frequently) updating. If you only want an online brochure or if you’d like a simple blog there are many free services available, but if you’d like a serious and unique website for a business or hobby concern you may want to look for assistance to develop just the right touch.

Static vs. dynamic style websites

If your information will not change and you do not wish to post fresh content to your website from time-to time, then a static style website is right for you. Your options for this type of website are simple. Use a free template or pay a designer. There are many services which will allow you to create your website from a basic design. all you need to do is buy the hosting and select the template, then fill in the information for each page. Of course, you can always change this later, or use a template and then modify it to suit your design needs. A brochure style website can be as simple or as complicated as you want, the main thing to remember is it is “static”, that is, the content remains the same. A visitor would come to your website to see what you are about, find your address and or phone number, and then would probably never visit your site again unless they need to retrieve this information again. There is no right or wrong type of website. The static type of website might be just the right type of site for your needs.

On the other hand, maybe you have a need to tell your visitors about changes that are occurring from time to time, or maybe you want to display different information dependent on the visitors input or the day of the week. All this is possible with a dynamic website. With a dynamic website you could write information and then call it up with a search-bar entry or access a database of information stored right within your website.
