It is vital that when having a website built you keep in mind what the main aim of the site is. It may be that you want to sell products or services online through an ecommerce website or it may be that you want to give people information about your products and services to try and gain enquiries either in person, through enquiry forms or over the phone.
Many business owners get carried away with installing gadgets and moving banners etc., forgetting what the main purpose of the website is.
You may worry about costs and want to try and build a site as cheaply as possible and therefore end up cutting the budget down so much that you end up with a site that is not really functional or that cannot be found on the search engines.
Make a list of all the things you want your site to offer to your visitors. Go through and prioritise the It may be such things as live chat options would be nice to have but not an essential part of the site. You can speak to the programmer who is building your site and get an idea of how much these will cost. This will then allow you to see if they fit within your budget without having to compromise on something else that is important.
