should be the bulk of your site. You want to get a feel of what
information you want to have on your web site before actually designing
it. For example, what text do you want to use? What pictures do you
want to use? Additionally, this would be a good time to brainstorm
how you want to implement navigation in the site. Navigation determines
how your information is organized. There are two basic paths you
can take in terms of navigation: user choice and linear. User choice
lets your audience choose what part of the site they want to visit.
This is usually accomplished by using a menu. A good example would
be www.yahoo.com . A linear navigation prevents your audience from
deciding where they want to go. It forces them to visit the pages
you want them to visit in the order you want them to visit them in.
To think of other information you
may need to gather, ask yourself..."What questions do my customers most frequently
ask me?" This is the type of information that will be of interest
to your viewers and should be on your web site.
