[This is the introduction to a series on going through some "Foundations Of A New Website". It is designed to help guide you through some of the fundamental questions you need to answer when you begin developing a new property online.]
When you develop an online presence, either from scratch or redesign, there are critical key aspects to consider at the beginning of the development process. These should be considered even before getting started with the new design.
It’s been stated over and over again that creating an online property is not a “build it and they will come” type situation. Most of the work of a successful web presence takes place after the “publish” button is pushed. But there are several things in the very beginning of the process that can make or break your success.
This will ensure that the future developments that come along will not be hampered by poor choices you made in the early development stage.
If you are looking into getting a website or are frustrated with your current site I want to provide you with several key aspects that you should look into before messing with the color scheme of your site.

More topics may be added as the series develops.[/box]
I’m hoping this to be a help specifically to those in the process of developing a new site. What topics would you like more information on concerning foundational aspects of a new website?
