Good research is the key to saving money online and finding the products and services that meet your requirements. If your goal is to make money using your computer then good research could save you a lot of time and money.
To create my own web page I had to source a domain name, hosting and an html editor.
I have found that it is easier to have greater success at a task or goal if I have spent some time carrying out research. It was no different when I wanted to create my own web page.
- Firstly: By this stage you should have an idea of what your website will be about. This is called your niche or topic. Search the internet for other related websites that are in your niche. Have a good look through what is already out there.
Is there an opportunity being missed that you can see? How have others laid out their website’s, what colors and styles have they used?
- Secondly: If you are looking for programs to use e.g. an html editor to build you web page, then investigate in detail all the available options.
You can search online as always but don’t forget Internet or computer magazines and books. These may have reviews or trial downloads available.
Use the freware trials and read the reviews. This way we can ensure that the products we choose to use are what we are comfortable using and easily allow us to carry out the tasks we purchased them for.
- Thirdly: Make sure you record all you research. Some times I like to make notes on paper. The best way is probably to create a desktop folder and keep notes and ideas written in there. Bookmark websites with good information or a great looking page layout. You could even make a screen shot of the web pages you like using the print screen button on your keyboard.
When I create my own web page I have at times emailed some of the other sites in my niche to see if they designed their own web page. I ask them what program have they used to develop their site? It doesn’t hurt to ask questions you will be surprised by how many people are willing to share advice.
This day in history...
