Building a great website takes passion. It also takes great copy, good design and a lot of time. These are all luxury items, so it would be wise to optimize the effort. We've put together a series of articles on this very topic. During the next five weeks, we'll tell you the whole story.
Edicy is a startup, a small and energetic company. Most of our customers are of the same size. Edicy itself is firstly meant for small companies. That's why we'll talk about small business websites. Not that NGO's, government agencies and enterprises live on another planet. It's just that this advice here is not for those to swallow without chewing.

The themes and dates of the posts will be:

In a nutshell, creating a great website is as follows:

How to create a great website
  • Build your site quickly, the details don't have to be perfect. In this timely world, great is enough. Just get it done.
  • Decide alone, don't gather a big team to distract your clear thinking. People never agree with each other anyways. Recruit only the best to give you good advice and do not share decision making. Democracy sucks in web creation.
  • Content is king. Think like your customers- write simply and shortly. Be visual. A picture is worth a thousand words.
  • Promote. Get it out in the wild once it's ready. A great product tends to spread quickly, but you still have to work hard. Without promotion no one knows how great it is. And there will always be loads of other great sites yearning for attention.
  • Congratulations, your job is done. Or... is it? Sad news is that it will never be. Once your attention runs down, your site dies alone. A truly great sites needs updating, developing and caring, forever. This is actually the fun part and there's no need to avoid it.
Check back on the dates above to get a closer look into the science of great website creation.

    "In a nutshell" -- there is no word about design?

  • Tõnu Apr 20

    Yes, I wanted to keep it short and neutral. No need for those everlasting arguments about design taste and content management system brands :)

    You can get a great design from a design stock or ask a designer to create it uniquely for you.

    In any case, do it quickly, don't try to be perfect and decide everything without a committee.

    Good stuff. I like the words: "takes great copy, good design and a lot of time. These are all luxury items, so it would be wise to optimize the effort". Mandatory for a great page though. Thanks for the series, it will be very useful to pass over to folks with online-wishes ;)

    I like brevity and content. Tell me about what I came to see, no more. I can repeat that about my passion.

    Learning to nurture my site is King, it carries my mind belongings. The simple way is the best way to follow my creation and the reaction of those who see it.

    Overly busy building has become paramount for me to avoid. I hope to enjoy this journey, with you.

    It is a very hard situation when playing the lottery and never won, or keep winning low fund not up to 100 bucks, i have been a victim of such a tough life, the biggest fund i have ever won was 100 bucks, and i have been playing lottery for almost 12 years now, things suddenly change the moment i came across a secret online, a testimony of a spell caster called DR EMU, who help people in any type of lottery numbers, i was not easily convinced, but i decided to give try, now i am a proud lottery winner with the help of DR EMU, i won $1,000.0000.00 and i am making this known to every one out there who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery.

    I finally was able to conceive a child of my own the year 2019 after 5 years without any issue. this really was the worst thing ever. It was a miracle that indeed shocked me. because i was left with no option but to use a Herbal Health Concoction that was prepared from Herbs to help my Immune. I got to find out about this from someone, and i talked to the direct source about my problem. He`s name is Priest Babaka and He told me how some necessary few herbs will be useful as to women`s health and recovery and He had to do what He knows best. He sent the Herbs to me and gave instruction on method of use. this all happened and i really have been able to say i`m glad God did this.

    You can get in-touch with Priest Babaka via Email: Or Facebook at priest.babaka
    Really just felt like dropping this.
