Week 3 — Analyse Requirements

This week our subject is Analyse Requirements. Objectives are Evaluating Social Media Options, Custom Built Websites vs Content Management Systems and Technical Requirements.

First is Social Media Options. Social media marketing is very popular and most businesses engage in some form of social media these days. All social media has in common is access to the Internet, and that means that you can easily find out if your social media is working using web survey software. I started looking at the Social Media options for my client website. I chose “Facebook”, “Instagram” for image share and “bookitlive” for a booking system.

I looked at few of the following sites for ideas for my project:

· http://www.surveymethods.com/how-to-use-web-survey-software-to-evaluate-social-media-campaigns.htm

· https://www.bookitlive.net/

Next, what is a content management system (CMS)?

A content management system (CMS) supports the creation, management, distribution, publishing, and discovery of corporate information.

It covers the complete lifecycle of the pages on your site, from providing simple tools to create the content, through to publishing, and finally to archiving. It also provides the ability to manage the structure of the site, the appearance of the published pages, and the navigation provided to the users. I looked at few sites and found good for my client website. I decided “WordPress” it has retained ease-of-use for a number of years, the features list has grown exponentially.

Last as for Technical Requirements, the client website need to choose a multiple, flexible hosting plan with web space and a domain. It is like Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. Those browsers should be followed flexible screen size of the website used to view it. I will use those program for the client website HTML, CSS, Mysql and FileZilla.
