Making a website for a specific company

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Ict- Coursework Sarah Kennedy Identification For our coursework we are making a website for a specific company we have chosen. The company I have chosen is 'Hair Associates'. We are making websites for the company, which is an effective way of advertising a company world-wide, for anyone to see at anytime. As the authorities at 'Hair Associates' have not okayed the website I'm making, the website will not be presented on the Internet. It will be aimed at the customers mainly but could be used for other purposes, possibly for another company to compare the two companies, or if someone would want to work at 'Hair Associates'. The main objective of the website is going to be that customers can access the website and find any information they want. If they wanted to speak to an individual person, they could have another way of contacting them i.e. through email or through phoning to speak to an employee personally. In the website there won't be any online shopping facilities, as we cannot process that information. This website is going to be about eight pages long, in these pages there will be; three links to external sites, a chat room and many other things. The information on the website, although not going to be produced onto the Internet, will be factual and accurate. My objectives are: ? Contents bar on each page ? Title bars on the pages ? Internal links on every page All of these will be easy to use whether you are a novice or an expert on the computer. Having these objectives should make the Website easy to access the information wanted by the customer whenever they want. ...read more.

Only to sites that are allied to the company. Would you want the logo? On every page. Would you want any images? Yes, but only if they were to do with the subject or were a product on sale. What factual information would you have? Events, opening hours, what the company is about, stores etc. Would you have feedback for the website? Yes, email for customers and could receive newsletters. What would you want the page to have to attract the customers? I would want the site to be clear concise, simplistic but still attractive to all types of customers. Would you provide free services? Yes, only to do with more advertising or to bring in more customers. Would you let the site act as a 'launchpad' site? Yes, but not exclusively and for new products. The information that I'll be using in my website will be factual and from Hair Associates and Vidal Sassoon themselves. The images are from www.vidalsassoon.com and www.argos.co.uk . Some of the images that are to do with the salons are scanned in and put onto the site is directly from a Hair Associate salon. Back up files will be stored on floppy disks and the hard drive of the schools computer system. It's important to use the security features in FrontPage, which will prevent unauthorised access e.g. Computer hackers changing features on the website or accessing details of subscribers or visitors to the website without their permission. Design These are three different types of frames that I could use: The frame that I will be using the most is: I chose this frame for most of my pages as it has space for a contents bar down the side, which will make the site easy to use and easy to find the page that the customer wants to get to. ...read more.

Conclusion

This page will have a navigation bar down the side making it easy for the visitor to go back or forward to any section of the website. 12th page- Once more this page will be the same as the last three but with celebrity hairstyles. This page will have a navigation bar down the side making it easy for the visitor to go back or forward to any section of the website. 13th page- This page is the mailing list which tells visitors what they can do to be put on the mailing list. Also this has a hyperlink at the bottom of the page to go back to the home page where the site starts. It also has a navigation bar down the side making it easy for the visitor to go back or forward to any section of the website. Here are printscreens of the actual pages: Customers view on the website: I found out that the site was all in perfect order, but the client would have like a constant background and one that related to 'Hair Associates' so that people who entered the site would realise that that was the colour of 'Hair Associates' just as everyone associates 'HSBC' with the colour red and the phone company 'Orange' with the colour orange. The background for the Vidal Sassoon products was fine, as it was to do with Vidal Sassoon but the other backgrounds should have stayed the same throughout the site. Doing this may seem boring but is how the company wants to be remembered which leaves that colour (whichever it may be) is the visitors head as 'Hair Associates' so then if they see that colour again they might automatically think of Hair Associates which is another form of advertising for the company. ...read more.
