Building a Website the Correct Way
When working with the clients in the digital age, it is best to have a project tracking system to show the progress of the entire project. Complete transparency is what will keep things inline and a client happy. I prefer Basecamp.com or Teamwork.com.
Deciding on a Platform
So there are many decisions you can make on what type of website you can have built. After many years of testing and building in virtually every platform, my code of choice is PHP.
WordPress and Magento are my favorite CMS and Eccomerce suites.
The most important factors in making a decision on a platform are the following:
- Ease of use.
- Open source technology.
- Lead/Sale generation tools and reporting
- Search Engine Optimization
