Wondering What to Use
Your Site For?
Here are a few suggestions:
You've heard of the "information superhighway", of course -
after all, you're travelling on it! Well, that word "information" is key.
But it isn't the whole story. The Web is about information - but it's also
about filling people's needs: their need for communication, information, companionship,
belonging, and for obtaining or disposing of stuff. It's virtual, all right -
but it's also the largest, most varied marketplace the world has ever seen, for buying,
selling and trading goods and services.
Some of the things you can do with a Web site are:
Advertise - tell the world what you
have to offer
Catalogues of goods and services,
usually with prices
Maps to your location
Provide information - and collect it.
Find out who your customers are and what they want.
People can request goods and information, and they can give you feedback. You
can send information and goods back to them.
Entertain, amuse, educate. It appeals to your audience and helps attract traffic to your site.
