Having a website is like opening a door and inviting potential customers into your business. So…Why does YOUR business need a website? Your site communicates with prospects and customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Even when you aren’t at work, your website is. Your customers can get to know you and your products through the website at their convenience. It can be better than passing out your business card to thousands of people.

Expands your reach : People from across the street and across the border have access to your products and services from the comfort of their own space.

Increases the effectiveness of your advertising : Print advertising is static, while the web is dynamic. Once you have a website up and running, we recommend your print advertising include your website address where pictures, text, tables and forms can help you get your message across.

Gathers feedback : Use forms and email to allow your clients to communicate with you.

Communicates effectively : Whether your website is built for customers or employees, web–based communication and email communication are cost–effective and time–saving devices.

It gets you found : Having a well–built website will increase the visibility of your site to the search engines that people use to find what they are looking for. Your specialist should not only offer creative design solutions, but also know how to make your site search engine friendly, so that clients can find you.

Sells directly : E–commerce can dramatically reduce expensive overhead while delivering a 24/7 ‘sales force’. Even if you don’t sell your product online, your website gives you the opportunity to distinguish your company or organization to your client. Reaching today’s consumer. Today’s emerging generation has never known life without a digital world of connection. According to stats (and who doesn’t like statistics!), over 88% of Canada’s population is online.1 Add the growth of social media to that and it becomes evident that without a credible web presence, you don’t exist for an expanding segment of your target market.

Your competitors : The sooner you gain a presence on the web, the better. Your competitors know this too. Increasingly, your clients (and potential clients) are making their decisions based on the standard of your website. A useable and engaging website can help to level the playing field between small and large companies.

2. What are all the categories involved in website?

1. Static website

2. Dynamic Website

3. What is static website?

A static web page (sometimes called a flat page/stationary page) is a web page that is delivered to the user exactly as stored, in contrast to dynamic web pages which are generated by a web application.

4. what is dynamic website?

A server-side dynamic web page is a web page whose construction is controlled by an application server processing server-side scripts. In server-side scripting, parameters determine how the assembly of every new web page proceeds, including the setting up of more client-side processing.

5. What are static and dynamic websites?

There are many static websites on the Internet, you won’t be able to tell immediately if it is static, but the chances are, if the site looks basic and is for a smaller company, and simply delivers information without any bells and whistles, it could be a static website. Static websites can only really be updated by someone with a knowledge of website development. Static websites are the cheapest to develop and host, and many smaller companies still use these to get a web presence.

Advantages of static websites

1. Quick to develop

2. Cheap to develop

3. Cheap to host

Dynamic sites on the other hand can be more expensive to develop initially, but the advantages are numerous. At a basic level, a dynamic website can give the website owner the ability to simply update and add new content to the site. For example, news and events could be posted to the site through a simple browser interface. Dynamic features of a site are only limited by imagination. Some examples of dynamic website features could be: content management system, e-commerce system, bulletin / discussion boards, intranet or extranet facilities, ability for clients or users to upload documents, ability for administrators or users to create content or add information to a site (dynamic publishing).

Advantages of dynamic websites

1. Much more functional website

2. Much easier to update

3. New content brings people back to the site and helps in the search engines

4. Can work as a system to allow staff or users to collaborate

6.Why Drupal?

After reviewing the top CMS systems geared towards higher education, it was determined that Drupal, due to its popularity and customizability, would be the best product to meet these goals and technical requirements.

7.What will I have to do to put my site on Drupal? Is it automatic?

No, it will not be automatic. You will have to manually rebuild your site. However, once you do that using modules that feed centrally provided and updated information, it will be far easier for you to maintain your site and keep it current. This also provides you with the opportunity to cull from your site old information or outdated pages.

8. What is a Content Management System (CMS)?

A Content Management System is a tool that allows you to maintain the pages of your website yourself, without the need for any technical skills. A CMS allows you to edit and add pages, images, products or blog entries to your website. No additional software is required - all you need is a web browser and an internet connection.

9.What is validation?

In content management system software, validation refers to security measures that ensure data inserted into an application meets pre-determined formats, complies with length requirements and any other defined input criteria you assign to it.

10.What is meant by workflow in a CMS?

Workflow is the system for routing documents or pages between users responsible for working on them – the management of who is making changes to or creating a content element or template.

11. What is Web Content Management?

It is the controlled separation of technology (the structure of the web pages look and feel) and content (up-to-date information). By separating technology and content, the roles of the web developer and the non-technical content owner can be separated. This enables web sites to be updated more timely and efficiently.

12.Does the new CMS support mobile?

Yes. The new CMS, by using responsive design, will eliminate the need for a separate mobile site for your web site presence.

13.What can I do to get ready for the CMS?

We recommend you begin to audit your current site by categorizing and analyzing existing content. For example, determine what pages are generating little or no traffic now and, therefore, do not need to be maintained. Also, look for instances where you are duplicating efforts, such as posting course information instead of drawing that information via a centrally provided widget or module. This is an opportunity to start fresh and cull your site so it is compact and easier to maintain. One functional goal of the CMS will be to track when sites are updated and to alert web administrators when pages are due for content updates or to be deleted.

14.What is the back end?

A database or program that is accessed by users indirectly through an external application. In a CMS, the admin panel is the back end.

15. Do you provide training?

Yes we provide all our clients with training on maintaining their website.

16.How do people find my website?

One of the ways for people to find your website is for you to include your domain name in all of your

Promotional materials .People can then type your domain name in to their web browser to get to your website. We also recommend that you get other websites to link to your website. Another way for new visitors to find your website is via a search engine such as Google

17.When should I consider redesigning my website?

The decision to redesign your website is similar to the decision to remodel or renovate your home. When you recognize a need for improvement, either because you aren’t comfortable with the look of your website or it isn’t bringing in as many visitors as you’d like, you need to seriously consider having your website redesigned.

18.Can I edit my site after I publish it?

Yes, you can edit your site as much and as many times as you want. Just open the site for editing and add or edit pages as you like.

19.What exactly can I customize in a website?

You will be able to customize style elements such as fonts, colors and backgrounds. Everything else is either main navigation, intrinsic architecture or actual content (that you need to enter yourself). In the future, we may enable more advanced customization options, but for the moment, we tend to keep a few restrictions in place.

20.What types of pages can I add to my website?

First, you have an ”about” type of page that is currently set as “Home“, a contact page where you can also enter all your contact details, so we can use the information to connect you and your visitors. Second, there is a standard article page, suitable for any kind of posts.

You can use the standard page as “Full width” to enter whatever html content you may have, to completely customize a specific page, but with drawbacks. Finally, there is the photo album page that may be displayed in extended view (article like) or purely as a slideshow. All pages are absolutely compatible with mobile devices (except for the “Full width” standard page).

21.Can I use Google Analytics to view stats on visitors?

Yes, you can add your Google Analytics tracking code right in the General settings page. Other than that, we offer our own basic stats for visitors and page views across your websites.
