Thought I'd share my experience of building a new website - what is yours?

CTO at Vadacom, Leaders in IP Telephony, Mobility,Contact Centre Technology, Interactive Voice Responce, VoIP.

Have you ever built a new site for your business? Are you planning to build the site, or commission building of the new site? I felt sharing my experience - mistakes and all - could be useful for you.

Here are some key learnings for me from this experience:

- Don't underestimate the task. Get help if you can't afford the time away from the business.
- Do a workshop with the designers before setting your budgets!
Get your team to help you focus on what is important to your business. - At the end of the day the way your business is presented affects all of the people working in it.
- Make sure to pick a user-friendly content management system (let your web designers guide you if you don't have the in-house expertise)
- Talk to your customers about who they think you are - this is a most valuable experience!
- Get help with content from people who know how to create it
- Don't forget about SEO

You can read more from my blog.

If you have recent experience, please comment and let's talk about website design, search engine optimisation and all things on-line marketing - I'd be keen to learn others sharing some "war stories"
