Dale emphasizes, "Not all companies need to go online, it depends on the company's set goals." Dale urged that every company realizes there are four areas of initial cost to set up a website; building the site, developing the basic storefront with no special features, this will cost you in the range of - $1,000.

Synopsis Marketing Plan
"The Crisis of the African-American Architect: Conflicting Cultures of Architecture and (Black) Power"
Melvin Mitchell, FAIA Literary Mission a graduate of Howard University in 1967 and educated at Harvard for the Master Architecture program, in which, he graduated in 1969. Melvin returned to Howard University to become an Assistant Professor in 1970 and later, in 1987, Melvin resumed full-time teaching at the University of the District of Columbia.
In 1997, Melvin became the head of the fledgling architecture school at Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD. With many years of experience and knowledge acquired, Melvin became increasingly alarmed by several things, in which, led him to write this book:
It began to occur to Melvin that black communities were not following the several early 20th century precedents that resulted in holistic redevelopment. The Tuskegee campus and numerous black new towns throughout the South were the most prominent examples of this. Also at that time in areas of the "performing arts" most notably music and dance black people epitomized excellence in American cultural life.
So why, Melvin kept asking himself, was architecture so glaringly excluded from 20th century black cultural life? Melvin embarked upon writing his first book as part of a search for answers. He began with several hypotheses:
(1) That black genius underlay original modern American music, dance, art, and possibly architecture.
(2) That architecture should have been an integral part of black cultural excellence that was asserted during the Harlem Renaissance.
(3) That Black America had abdicated responsibility to others for housing her people.
Melvin Mitchell, FAIA book is an opening attempt to find what role trained black architects played (or fail to play), the role of the HBCU (historical black colleges universities) architecture programs, and what changes of course are required in the 21st century.
The objective for Melvin Mitchell, FAIA thought provoking book is to provide a means of awareness for the African-American community. Therefore, marketing to the University Libraries, Professional Chapters, and Contemporary Book Stores in pursuit of influencing the African-American community conscious to take notice of the impending "Crisis" of the African-American Architect:
(1) Conducting lectures at prestigious African-American Universities, primarily the Library establishments and/or Professional entities that relate to this area of expertise. Book signings at African-American bookstores and interviews on local talk shows and/or radio for more exposure of this pertinent awareness the author has raise for the African-American community.
(2) Seminars, conventions, and general appearances will be individually discussed on availability and fees.
Statistics Of The Academy And HBCU Schools:
The state of the Academy and the eight HBCU (historically black college universities); relating to the academy being 123 accredited architecture schools dispersed throughout the nation's 3,500 four-year colleges. The below table exemplify the projected estimated enrollment of African American students in architectural schools providing a profound need for future programs to implement the needed changes of curriculum that is outline in Mr. Mitchell's book.
The Academy; 45%
In 3 Yrs or more
The Academy; 50%
These are estimated Projected Growth of future Black Architects.
Melvin Mitchell's book focuses on this subject by detailing the many opportunities black folks had during the golden years of the Harlem Renaissance and later on during the 20th century. Black folks in the area of study of architecture and other humanity of culture must take notice of these issues raised by Mr. Mitchell.
