Q: Does my business need to be computer-based in order to have a web site? Do I need to know about computers?
A: You don’t need to have computers involved in your business in order to have a web site. Many companies do filing, invoicing and more without a computer. Creating a web site is more about exposing your business to new potential clients and generating new sales. There is no need to overhaul the way your company does business.
Q: What does ‘web site maintenance’ mean?
A: Web site Maintenance refers to changes made to your web site after the initial design. Keeping a web site up-to-date is essential in having repeat visitors to your site. Updating the site with sales, newsletters, press releases, financial figures and links are all examples of web site Maintenance.
