Christine’s Internet Marketing Spot Weblog: Navigation Part I

I should have made a weblog navigation post a long time ago. However, I’ve gained a surge of inspiration and energy by the recent election of President-elect Barack Obama .... So as our nation heads into a full transition mode, I just figured it’s the appropriate time for my blog swing into transition as well.

This is the first of a month long series of posts to help my visitors migrate my site to find needed useful and helpful information that will help them.

Site Goals and Tasks:
CR Group & Associates LLC and Christine’s Internet Marketing Spot, strives to locate, share and provide access to online premium business products and services that spur growth to the entrepreneur marketplace.

Site provides small business owners a network of useful information comprised of expert advice sources to grow their revenue through funding resources, office productivity tools and software, computer safety and protection utility programs, internet marketing techniques and latest news features around the Web.

Navigation Overview:
Weblog navigation is such an essential component of a blog, unless you are simply providing content for your eyes only. I would think from an outside user’s point of view, it just makes sense to have an arrangement and placement of content features in a manner that can be easily and instinctively accessed by the user.

This series of posts describes simple, yet flexible navigation that I’ve been toying with over the past couple of years. Here’s where it stands thus far.

* CR Group & Associates LLC product and services government vendor items for City, State, County and Federal Purchasing Agencies, along with Universities, and School Districts.

* Products and services for general public and subscribers.

My first thought was to categorize or classify this area by subject content. However, having many resources in widely differing content, I have opted for Alphabetical Listing of Products and Services with brief descriptions.

Later series of posts will feature products and services so users can access them by their individual website pages or by conducting relevant keyword searches.
