Prep Work

MW Website Design will prepare the template and set up your web pages with the information for the webpage, including images, to be prepared by you, or a representative from your business. MW Website Design will help guide you in your decisions regarding what pages would be appropriate while acknowledging that you know your business best.

Pretend for a moment that you are the potential customer and/or ask some of your favorite customers, what would you would want to see on the website?

For comparison, look at websites of businesses similar to yours; what type of pages do they have, what type of information do they offer?

Please send the webpage content in a Word document via email.  Photos can be put on a disk or shared on a google drive with me, whichever you prefer.
