Package 3 - 299

Package 3 will be supported by a database. This can be used for product information, and producing information of your products 'dynamically' to your website. A database has many other uses, for example a blog can be held on a database and returned dynamically to show on your website.

A database can be used for all websites, but they are specifically used so that there can be 'organisation' of data, and that data can be 'searched'. For example, if you have a lot of products, it may be better if they are listed in the database, and when a user searches for a particular product, then only those products appear.

Say for example you are an Art Shop. You will have lots of paintings for sale. They will be of different media, ie oil paintings, acrylic paintings, water colours and so on. Within each of those groups there will be Landscapes, Still Life, Abstract, there may also be painting styles such as 'Impressionist'. They may be painted on canvas, board, water-colour paper, and so on.

Therefore, putting all of the products into a database means that if you want to see 'All Landscapes' then you will get them all, whether they are water-colour, oil or acrylic, whether they are on board, etc. If you ask for 'water-colour' only, then you will get water colours of all subjects. Or you can narrow it down to say 'Landscape Oil on Canvas'... this is one of the uses of a database.

Therefore the site is a Brochure type of website. This means that people can see all or any of your products, and then contact you to buy them.

You will be able to have a website that will have a Home Page, About Page, Products Page, Services Page and Contact Us Page.

The Home Page will welcome people to your site and detail what your company offers. This page is important, it's like the 'shop window' of your company and Google sees it that way too, so it's important to get the information right for your user, and the technology right for Google

The About Us page is more relaxed, and will detail who, what, why, when, how, for example who you are, what you do, how long you have been working as an artist, and so on.

The Products page would list the products that you sell.

Services Page, will list the service you provide, for example picture framing, picture restoration, commissions, and so on...

The Contact Us page will show your name, address, postcode together with a Google Map, and list your telephone numbers, any Facebook or Twitter link, together with your opening hours

If you have a shop, or commercial premises we can also place an image of that on the Contact Us page

It may help to read about Package 1 if you do not have a website at all, as this explains about web hosting, domain name and email address.
