In this episode of Domainvestors.tv I discuss the development process I follow for building full-scale websites. While I have discussed mini-site development previously on my blog it is important to understand the time and energy that goes-into developing a full-scale website on a domain.
I recently purchased Translate.co.in through Bido.com and will be developing this domain as a translation service and resource for India.
When I embark on a new development project I like to make-sure I have a solid plan of when I plan to finish the site and how much time I expect the development process to take. It is absolutely essential that you set goals and deadlines if you really want to finish a project.
The main components of this development project are:
– Adding the translation interface to the site. For this I will be using the Google Translate API and AJAX.
– Writing the content. I plan to offer roughly ten articles on the site that I will write myself. I use the Google Adwords Keyword tool to determine which keywords related to “translate” are the most popular. This will help me provide content that people are looking for.
– Designing the headers, logos, etc.
– Writing the HTML, CSS, and PHP code for the site.
I will continue to include my readers in this development project and show you the site as it evolves.
