How do you make sure that your website is cost-effective?
Here's some expert advice on how to build the website you want, using whatever level of skills, time and budget you have available....
....so your site gets RESULTS.
If you answer four questions, this site will guide you to the best option for your needs — whether you do everything yourself, or hire a design team to do it for you.
Keep in mind that less than 1% of business websites ever make a profit, because there are a lot of elements that need to be done just right before someone will trust your site with their credit card number.
And even if you do have the best site in the world, it still needs to have visitors if it’s going to earn you anything. The two most basic things a website needs are a strong flow of traffic, and the ability to convert those visitors into customers.
As you read through this site, you’ll find out how to get a website that fulfills both of those needs. I'll guide you to the best way to achieve your goals, regardless of how much or how little time, money and technical expertise you want to contribute to your site’s design.

OK, now that we’ve got that out of the way, we can (finally!) get on to talking about your site:
A good website gives many benefits
No matter whether you’re aiming for income, exposure, or personal satisfaction, a website can be a very cost-effective way of making it happen.
Compared to the expense of colour brochures... sales presentations... tradeshows... newspaper & magazine ads... television advertising....
....the price of a website is practically negligible.
And a website gives you an expandable and instantly updateable medium, that can literally reach millions of eyeballs. Yes, even if you’re just a one-woman show.
Plus your site also has the power to automate everything — from the ordering process, to....
- customer relations,
....in fact, just about anything you can imagine that can be scheduled, calculated or recorded.
And once your site is up and running, it costs almost the same whether it gets read by 1 visitor or 1,065,479. Which makes Internet marketing the most cost-effective way of reaching your target audience and turning them into customers.
