Summary : Do you realize thousands of new Websites are added to the incredibly vast catalogue of cyberspace every month? That's really amazing, especially when you consider this could literally go on forever and the Web would never get "filled up".
Do you realize thousands of new Websites are added to the incredibly vast catalogue of cyberspace every month? That's really amazing, especially when you consider this could literally go on forever and the Web would never get "filled up".
The Web really is an unlimited opportunity for growth and expansion, whether your aims are business, charitable, or personal.
However, quite sadly, I believe for every Website that does go live, there are many hundred other people who "want to" launch their site but just can't find the confidence to do so.
Many people will tell me they "just don't have the time" or they "can't afford it right now" but the truth is these are just excuses in almost every case. Basic psychology suggests that we tend to put off, avoid, or make excuses for not doing those things we are afraid of for one reason or another.
The truth is most potential Website owners are simply intimidated by what they believe will be an ultra-technical process. And the great news here is that building a fabulous Website is not an overly technical process!
One really doesn't need to become an expert in Web languages, domain and hosting management, or anything else to have a highly effective Web presence up and running within just a matter of days. As somebody who owned a profitable Web development company I will go as far as to say that you only need a basic grasp of about 10% of the overall body of knowledge in the Web design field to achieve great success.
This means for every 100 techniques you really only need around ten to do a great job on your own Website. How's that for a shift in perspective?
You don't need to know how to build fancy graphics.
You don't need to understand complicated database functions.
You don't need to worry about learning any programming languages.
(Seriously you need ZERO knowledge of Web programming)
You don't have to spend a ton of money on software.
You don't even need to spend a lot of time learning the basics. If you have been able to read this article without a struggle you should be able to learn the basics of quality Web design in only a few hours of study.
The most important part of your Website project is this: You must get started right away!
The biggest difference in folks who have their site online and working around the clock for them and people who never enjoy this benefit is so simple:
Those who have a Website took the first step and moved forward from there. And these people found that once they took action, even just a little bit of it, the rest of the process unfolded in front of them almost like magic.
I'm not going to tell you there isn't some work and study involved. But it's nowhere near as hard to understand and implement as you might think it is.
So don't delay even one more day. Decide right now to start spending at least some time each day learning the basics and you could easily have your first site online in one week or less.
