The Newbies Guide to Web design
Here's a summary of everything you will learn in this information-packed resource...
From the basics:
Why you really do need a website...
Make money online
Post your online resume, easily updated, easily available, with interactive links to really show what you've done in past jobs or education
Keep up with friends and family - announce a new engagement, wedding, baby, achievement, job, move
Simplifying the jargon - then using it
Know your COM, BIZ, NET, ORG, INFO, WS, etc.
Know what you don't need to know about HTML, JAVA, PHP, ASP, etc. - and what you do
How do they do that? And should you?
Spinning, bouncing, fading pop-ups
The myth of the all-knowing programmer or site designer
Most use the same tools available to you
A lot of those tools are free
Many are no more difficult to use than clicking a mouse button
Advertise your current brick-and-mortar (offline) business
Provide a map to your store or office
Offer "specials" you can change daily without spending a dime
Showcase your service or product
Start a new business online
Or expand the one you have to as large a customer base as you desire
A website can focus tightly on a single city, even a neighborhood
Or it can bring in new customers from all over the planet
Learn the history of the Net, how it came to be, where it's at, where it's going
Not knowing this is like voting with no knowledge of democracy or the candidates and issues
Your choice: Teach your children - or hope they will teach you
