We discuss first steps for solo-preneurs and start ups to put together their first website. We talk about the ins and outs of website CMS’s and builders. Is it worth it to make a site yourself? What’s the tipping point to hiring someone? And what are the best solutions for a DIY route without wasting hours figuring out your platform?
Moving beyond the tech, we walk through writing an example site brief to help you figure out your audience, user flows, and how that translates into content and architecture. Kristin also points to the one thing to spend money on (and it’s not development!), and Joel emphasizes understanding context when it comes to writing site copy.
