  • Print off your plan and take it with you
  • Add more details when on the train or bus
  • Scan the notes, then drift into creative mode
  • Having your plan with you, will give you an organised way to edit and pump up your website.

Learn how to analyse your strengths and weaknesses as well as any potential threats and most importantly, the opportunities that raise their heads.

As you plan your shiny new website, you need to understand and explore every avenue of your online business so that you are fully prepared. The work you do now will be reinforced along the way.
