I am in the process of creating a website for a local hardware store. As of now there will be no sales through the website. However, the purpose of the site is to bring in more customers in the surrounding area.
This is my first time building a website. I will probably go with 99 designs.
My question is what are some key components that should be included.
As an idea ...
Homepage > store front image, map of location of the store and snippets of blog posts.
Products > general categories images (paint, tools, gardening, plumbing, etc)
About Us > Information about when founded and who serves the market.
How to > Blog about how to do things.
New > New about local events.
Contact Page >
In your experience what's the best way to draw new customers into the store...
