Whether you are a small business owner, a freelancer or a blogger, setting up a website is absolutely central to everything you do. But if you haven’t started the process of establishing the site yet, it is worth taking a step back and thinking about a few things first. Remember, you want your site to make a big impact from the moment it is launched. Careful planning should be your first stage before you rush headfirst into the actual building of your site. So, let’s take a look at a few points you need to consider before building your website.
Establish Your Aims
First and foremost, you need to establish what it is that you are aiming to achieve from your website. Is it mainly for entertainment, information or selling? Once you have worked this out, you can start profiling your average customer in terms of who they are, what websites they like to visit and what keywords they are likely to search. Ask yourself why they are looking at your site and how you can make their lives easier.
Understand that it is a Gradual Process
There is no magic ‘website generator’ button, and creating the perfect site is going to take some time. After setting up the domain name, there is the design phase followed by the development phase. Most people choose to outsource the job to an expert, and you can speed the whole
process along by having the copy, pictures and video content ready, as well as making sure you are 100 percent happy with the design itself.
Think About the Customer Journey
When you are getting to the point of actually structuring your website, you need to think about how your customers are going to move through the site. The core information of the site should be clearly visible within the first few seconds of entering the homepage or your customers are likely to look elsewhere. The navigation should be clearly structured to make it easy to travel between pages on the site.
Consider How You Will Promote the Site
Just because you build it, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they will come. It is best to think about site promotion before you actually get up and running. SEO is such an important factor in all modern websites, and you need to make sure that this is right from the start. Also, decide whether you would like to use PPC advertising to get your site off the ground. If you have more traditional marketing channels, you need to make sure that your website is clearly displayed on all business cards, flyers, posters etc.
Understand that the Site Will Need Maintenance
Web development is such a fast-moving field that it is essential that your site will require maintenance from time to time. As well as this, you need to think about the regular updates that you will be posting regarding blogging etc. A site that is never updated quickly becomes stale and people inevitably start to turn off.
What to Do if You Are Involved in a Truck Accident While Traveling
Any vehicle accident can potentially cause a lot of damage, not only to the vehicle itself but also to the passengers. One of the most fatal type of accident on the roads is an accident involving a truck. No matter where you are traveling to, or from, it is important to know the steps to take should you be involved in a truck accident. We are going to look at those steps in this article.
Step 1: Say Nothing That Admits Fault
After an accident, you may be required to speak to the police and Highway Patrol. While it is important to be truthful and answer any questions they have, you don’t want to elaborate or provide too much information. If you have any questions about the other party, you should limit yourself and just ask if they are hurt. No matter what you do, don’t apologize, don’t speak to the other driver, and don’t say anything like “I didn’t see you”. All of these things can come across as an admission that you are at fault. It is unlikely that fault can be determined at the accident scene, and you don’t want to risk jeopardizing your case by saying something you shouldn’t.
Step 2: See a Doctor
It’s wise to see your doctor immediately after an accident, even if you feel fine. Many people do feel okay after an accident, but they still have injuries that need checking out. Not only will this help to ensure your personal safety, but you will also have any injuries you sustained on record, should your truck accident lawyer need them when building your case.
Step 3: Notify Your Insurance Company
Your insurance policy should detail the steps you need to take to report a claim. You might also want to review your policy to see what kind of coverage you have, and how long you can expect to wait to receive a payout. Your insurance company may need extra information regarding the accident so be prepared for this.
Step 4: Contact an Attorney
Delay and procrastination can lead to a lost claim, so as soon as you have seen a doctor and notified your insurance company you’ll want to contact a truck accident attorney. Every state has different limitations regarding the statute of limitations for personal injury claims, so it’s wise to do this as soon as possible. If you were traveling out of state when the accident happened, you may need to speak to an attorney based in the state where the accident took place.
Your attorney will be able to look at the evidence you provided, as well as your medical records, and let you know whether you have the basis for a claim. The first meeting is usually free, too, so it’s always worth finding out if you could claim compensation. Whatever you do, don’t bow over to the trucking company’s lawyers, especially if you couldn’t have done anything to prevent the accident.
Have you ever been injured in a truck accident that wasn’t your fault? Let us know what happened in the comments.

The Sweet Caroline of Dogers Owner
Mark Walter is a billionaire and CEO at Guggenheim Partners LLC. Is he driving Guggenheim towards the beginning of the end? Are the owners of the L.A. Dodgers being dodged???
Guggenheim has established its name and a tradition of innovation in the past decade. It has emerged as a new player in the financial markets focusing on mergers and acquisitions, insurance and wealth management and has over $300 billion in money management.
Guggenheim has become known as the “New Goldman Sachs”. It has become a renowned recruiter of the best talent in the industry (including Bear Stearns CEO Alan Swartz). Guggenheim continually makes the cover page in most financial papers, including The Financial Times and The Wall Street Journal. Lately, Guggenheim has been appearing in the press for all of the wrong reasons or for the LA Dodgers making it to the World Series.
But the tide is beginning to turn on Walter and Guggenheim. The news now regularly includes information on CEO Walter and his relationship with Alexandra Court (a South African citizen, former corporate lawyer at Clifford Chance and who also did stints with UBS and Credit Suisse)
Ms. Court’s hiring and promotion has seemingly created power struggles within Guggenheim and in-fighting with its brilliant Chief Investment Officer Scott Minerd.
The current situation seems to be nothing new for Walter. He has previously clashed with founding partners including Morley, Curcio and Boehly – all of these individuals left Guggenheim with extremely generous (nine-digit) severance packages. More telling is that only six managing partners remain. New information is coming to light every day. It is no wonder that Ms. Court is trying to negotiate her departure and is reportedly asking for $100 million severance and a mansion.
Walter has his allies – ABS Capital Company (an offshore company and owner of Walter’s Malibu estate); a number of Latin American sophisticated agents; and another blond female “Caroline” working now at Guggenheim. Do these allies recognize that their reputations and jobs are on the line with the investigation and questioning of the origins of the dollars through the sophisticated insurance structures.
The latest theory is that Walter will walk out. Looks like it could be a larger blow than we actually think. Do not blink or you will miss something.
