What is web presence and how do we define it? Okay, so you have your site up and now you have web presence, right? Well, it's not that simple. What is the personality of your web site? Does it represent you and your business? Can others see you in your site? How is it different to everything else out in cyberspace?

This is an easy way to keep users coming back for more. Don't pass this up without serious consideration. What can you offer your users weekly or daily to make them want to come back to your site? Tidbits of information here and there can make a big difference. We can blend a blog within a site to make it look like part of the site or use a blog such as Wordpress to design the whole site.

The web has come a long way in the last few years. Web browsers are becoming more standards compliant. The old style of designing is going away.

Do you need a full featured shopping cart or a simple Paypal system? How much security do you need? How complex is your shop or service? You wouldn't build a 200,000 square foot warehouse to sell a few match books, would you?
Do we need embedded or streaming video? Should we use Flash for this purpose? How much video do you have? Do you change it out or update it regularly? Do you need DVDs and downloadable mp4s? Joseph recently produced a 7 DVD set of his wife's miraculous journey to help others through difficult times.
What is the best way to incorporate music and audio into the site? If your site has a certain atmosphere, you might like to consider some background music that can be controlled by the user. Want to record and/or produce a music CD and/or make music mp3s available for download? Joseph produced 6 CDs of his own music last year and two of the CDs are now in a Family Christian Store in Colorado Springs, CO. The rest of his music is on his YouTube channel and his websites.
