to start - 6 easy steps
Once you have decided to use Cazzlo to create an online presence for
you or your business, just follow these few simple steps:
Analyze Your Company’s Goals and Web
Before venturing on the Internet, we would like to get to know your
business strategies and figure out what goals you would like to accomplish.
You can help us do this by answering a few basic questions:
Will your website be for generating leads, selling products, promoting
services, building brand identity or all the above?
What would you like to achieve from having an online presence?
We will work together to create your goals and strategies, and make
your online presence worthwhile.
You need to decide on your domain name (web address) and email
Cazzlo will register your domain name and set up any email addresses.
Your Domain Name
Think of a creative name that will attract traffic, but will
also be in line with your company's branding / image. Your domain
name has to be creative and marketable.
Keep the following in mind when choosing your domain name:
Our services include setting up customized POP3 email accounts for
your company, along with the directions on how to set them up
in such programs as Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express.
Use only letters, numbers, or hyphen ("-")
Name segments may not begin or end with a hyphen.
The main name cannot exceed 63 characters in total.
Domain names are not case sensitive.
Your domain name cannot include spaces, so try and avoid using
names which might be confusing or easily misspelled (bosssupplies.co.nz).
When you've decided on a couple of possible domain names, you
can check if they are available:
• Go to the Iserve website
and enter the possible domain name
• Click the "Next" button
Setting up Branded Email Addresses
Not only is it important for branding to have a "yourcompany.co.nz" email
address, but it is also very valuable. E-mail marketing is proven
to be the most popular and successful form of online marketing. Every
email you send out will contain your company's name, which could
generate business and valuable leads. This is also great for communication
among employees to send internal documents, memos, etc. You can set
up email addresses for individuals (firstname.lastname@example.org) or enquiry
related addresses (email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org).
You need to decide on your site content
Content is primary!
List / locate the material you wish to include, text information and
photos for your site. Remember that any content not in digital format
will need to be typed or scanned. If you previously hired a graphic
designer we can also work with him/her to get any text or graphics
files (logos, photos). If you do not have photo's to include, Cazzlo
can offer a Digital Photography Service. We will create professional
looking business logos and other graphics throughout your site to enhance
your online appearance. Customized logos and graphics will make your
site stand out from your competition. We will capture your company's
identity from the information you provide, or alternatively we can
work on a fresh branding image for you.
The content will vary with the purpose of the site but a balance of
text & graphics/photographs is recommended for web pages.
A business will usually wish to include product & support information,
promotions & to co-ordinate their site with existing stationary,
decor, slogans, trademarks or logos.
Clubs/organizations usually have logos, a charter or background
information, rosters & minutes, notification of meetings or events.
A family or personal site might have news & photographs about family & friends,
family history/genealogies, hobby pages or perhaps a resume.
Cazzlo Design write up the content for our website?
Draw up a suggested Site Layout (pages)
Decide on the amount of pages you will need to display the content
you have collected. Record the names of the pages and what type of
content each page will contain. You will want to create fully functional
web pages with information about your products, your contact details
and services as well as hyperlinks to other pages. This is where
you could have educational informational, maps to your business,
forms to collect information from your users, biographies of employees,
