There are some terrible examples of business sites around, but yours needn't be one of them.

Here is a basic checklist for your website.

Does your site resemble a Banner farm? Let me clarify that a bit, do you have too many banners either selling other products, or to try to create traffic through banner exchanges? Either way they will slow down your site, and distract your visitors. Loserepparttar banners, and add some content about your products and look for traffic from other sources. Are words Poorly spelt? It's up to you to proofread your website copy, and even pros can make mistakes. If your website has spelling mistakes your customers are going to think you don't care or worse aren't smart enough to be able to advise them properly.

Does it all make sense? Sometimes, a comma, or other punctuation can changerepparttar 136218 whole context of your sentence. Make sure you read every line back, and that it all reads as you want it to. Then get someone else to check it again. My own proofreader is my wife, and she spots plenty of mistakes before I publish, and make a fool of myself.

Lastly, how do you tie it all together into a nice good looking package? If you are like most small businesses, you won't be able to affordrepparttar 136219 high prices ofrepparttar 136220 web designersrepparttar 136221 big boys use. It is however still possible to have a an eyecatching webdesign for little cost by using templates.
