Tips on Building a Great Business Website

 A businesses website is fundamental to its overall success. A badly put together sire, with a lot of outdated and irrelevant content in a seemingly incoherent manner, is not going to get you anywhere. It will definitely reflect negatively against you. If you have not given your website much thought until now, or if it is pretty basic and the content has not been updated for a while, it is time you paid it much more attention. Pretty much all businesses worth their salt have a great website. And if you need ideas, just check out your competitors. You're bound to find something suitable. Okay, so here are some tips on building your own business website:

Site Plan

Before you start creating content and taking photos, you need to work out exactly what you need. It is probably worth doing a little investigation into similar websites and discovering more about how theft is laid out and all the information that is required. You need, in the first instance, a great home page. Your home page is what entices your potential customer to stay. You then need the home page to have a logically laid out menu structure. You will want a menu with no more than seven items, any more than this is too much and distracting. So you need to carefully consider why a customer will be landing on your website and ensure your home page reflect this, and your menu headings do too. What you want is a logical and easy to navigate site. You will also want to consider the functions such as a shop, and live chat. There are a lot of places you can go to to get help on your website, such as WebX360.


Your Content 

Relevance, preciseness and ease of reading are absolutely key. Remember that less is more when it comes to content. You do not want to have all the essential information lost within a ton of text. If you believe that more content is better, you are mistaken. You are far better off having concise text with a relevant matching image rather than a page of waffle. No one has the time to search through that for the golden nuggets they are after. It is also important to use relevant images, vlogs, gifs, etc. Anything that distracts from the point is to be removed. 


SEO

You will also want to ensure that your content is optimized for the search engine. SEO (search engine optimization) is an essential part of your marketing strategy, as it determines how a search engine will find you. What you need to do is look at your customer data and determine how your customer communicates, the language they use, words, phrases etc. What are they likely to type into the search engine? Ensure your pages have these words and phrases in their content. Another way to ensure that your content is always updated and relevant to help the search engines fins you is to have a blog that is loaded with keywords.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
