Websites' Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How interactive is the Internet?

A: Unlike an ad in the local phone book which gives only your business address and phone number, the Internet allows people to interact directly with you and your company. For example - you may dedicate part of your page to giving directions to your store from anywhere in the local area or even anywhere in the world. You could list specific items that you sell so customers know what you have. As a matter of fact, they don't even need to come inside your store anymore - they can buy products directly from your website!

Some other possibilities are: You can provide an online tour of your company and products, show your company's history, play interactive trivia or games for prizes, or initiate special online promotions to spice up your website. The Internet provides an opportunity to always put your best face forward and interact with people in ways not possible just a few years ago. Remember, there are now 75+ million people online, and they are all potential customers, 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week.

Q: What are the two basic types of webpages?

A: There are two basic types of webpages - business and personal. The difference is simple - business sites sell a product while promoting a company's images and values, while personal sites promote ideas but do not sell anything. These websites vary from one page advertisements to an intricate web of thousands of pages.

Q: What is the #1 reason to be on the Internet?

A: Customer Convenience! The Internet is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Although your company may only be open during regular day and evening business hours, the Internet never closes, allowing your company and products to be viewable by anyone at any time.

Q: Do people really use the Internet?

A: DEFINITELY YES! Over 75 million people are now connected to the Internet with 760 new households online EVERY HOUR! People are using this fantastic technology to look for many things: entertainment, news, restaurants, gift ideas, and possibly you and your company. Because the Internet is accessible from the comfort of home, more and more people are using the Internet to shop for and purchase the products they need.

Q: How does advertising on the Internet compare to other forms of advertising?

A: There is no question that television, radio, and newspaper advertising works. But ads in these media are very expensive and have strict size and length restrictions.

In stark contrast, the Internet is an advertiser's dream. The Internet is inherently designed to provide as much room and as much time as you need to promote your company and the values it stand for. For a very reasonable cost, it allows your company to supply vast amounts of information to current and potential customers. In addition, your company has the capability to sell products directly to customers while they are reading your ad online. Try that with a television or newspaper ad!

The Internet has quickly become one of the best (and most cost-efficient) way to increase the visibility of any company - whether big or small. Quite simply - For about the price of one newspaper ad per month, your company can have a significant presence on the Internet. This trend toward Internet advertising is evident today as many television and newspaper ads refer potential customers to a company's website.
In short, the Internet has revolutionized the way most companies advertise and conduct business.

Q: Does Avatek Web Design create personal webpages too? If so, what are the benefits?

A personal webpage is put up to further the sharing of knowledge and/or information. There are millions of people on the Internet right now who have personal webpages. They tend to gather into collections of similar pages, kind of like a network of neighborhoods. Neighborhoods where people share what they know with one another.

You will be surprised to find how many advantages there are in having a personal webpage. Some of these are:

· If you have pictures of yourself or of your family members (such as a new born baby), you can place them online so that relatives anywhere in the world can view them.
· You can put your resume online for potential employers to see your credentials.
· You can put some of your amateur poetry or music online and share it with everyone.
· If you hold knowledge in a particular field, you can share that information with the world.

If you enjoy browsing the web and have many places you enjoy visiting, you can have a page that lists your favorite sites so others may enjoy.
