I love what you said about writing authentically; it's something I always try to do by listening to what the business owners says to me on the phone. Often there is a real mismatch between what the web copy says and what the business owner thinks and how he or she operates.

Get in touch with Bryce at http://donedigital.com.au/ ... even if he can't help you, he'll be able to recommend someone.

Hi Yi Have you considered creating a website yourself? If you require a simple website, then it could be a good low cost option. If you require a more complex website, with advanced functionality then it may be best to hire a web designer. The company who I work for (Yola) is a website builder that let's you create a site without any technical skills, I thought I would put it out there as an alternative to hiring a web designer. Cheers

Some good caveats for business owners here, Charly, thanks. Are there other CMS platforms you use besides Wordpress?
Great post! Very useful. Only thing I would change is that you should start with the last point - be strategic! * If your site works just fine for you now, don't change it. * If you are changing it, then list everything you want to change and prioritise the most important points BEFORE you start the implementation. Thanks especially for the info on the redirection plug-in - need to check that one out!
