The job of planning, launching, and managing a site often falls to people who have little or no experience in web design or development.

Using Website Owner's Manual, readers master the vocabulary and concepts they need to discuss how a website dovetails with the needs of a business. This book will help them work confidently with the designers and developers building and maintaining a site so they can concentrate on what your website needs to do.
