What is a Web Presence?
For others it is a means of advertising their business or services. And, frankly, pages range from the sublime to the eclectic to the esoteric. The only common thread, sometimes, the fact that they are all accessible, 24x7x365 - that is: 24 hours, 7 days, 365 days of the year.
What does it involve?
Before we get to the stage where we can display our pages on the web, we have to design a theme; plan the layout, design the individual bitmaps that make up the pages, and then "mark them up" using HTML.
The Ikhaya Design Philosophy
The above spells AIDA - the old sales/public speaking mnemonic! But equally relevant to "advertising/selling" one's services on the web, as far as I am concerned. (And, BTW I claim copyright to the above adaptation!)
In addition to the above, and relevant to INTEREST - I design my pages with both Netscape/Explorer in mind, as they are the browsers of choice of more than 90% of the total web user population. This means that I will not use Frames/Blinks/Scrolls/animations, etc, until both of these browser packages offer all such enhancements. (I get requests from people for Banners - then access their pages, while using Explorer and WHAM! page doesn't load! Or it is covered with Netscape sales drivel - obtain a "frames" capable ....!!! Needless to add, that they invariably wait until the next time I use Netscape to test something, and remember to also check their pages!)
The point I am trying to make here, is that if you want to be seen... Make sure that you are! By as many people as possible! (Do Not suggest that I go and "download" another browser, just to view YOUR pages. It is, from a marketing point of view, both arrogant and extremely "SHORT-SIGHTED"! Almost like telling a client in London, they have to travel to NY to come and look at your brochure!)
