A website needs a lot of planning and preparation before you actually work on it. Poor planning can lead to a poor website. Have a rough plan ready about the graphics and visuals to be used, the content, font, style, and color. You should also be sure about the number of pages you need to upload, where and how to place the navigation button and so on.
Before you upload your site you need to register for a domain name. It is an address given to your website which can be easily identified among various websites on the Internet. You may not be able to purchase it but can get it on lease for a period of two years.
It is true that pictures are attractive and speak about the product. However, visitors to your website are more interested in your content and do not waste time in uploading pictures that take time to load. Instead, use quality and unique content that will be useful to the reader.
Taking care of these things will help you catch hold of many browsers. However, update your website often, and revamp the website once in a while, to keep the visitors coming back for more.
