"Do Yourself A Favor..." By Ken Leonard Jr. ©2002 KLJ Online "...Pick Up A Full-Featured Website Design Program" Developing websites for selling products online can be much different from designing glitzy, effects-driven sites of today. A website designer may not realize requirements of online marketing related, or product selling/reselling sites. They may sell you a design that looks great, but makes no sales for you. A website, like any other method of online promotion, has to be exper- imented with, fine-tuned, and then "tweaked" some more. It is a work forever under construction. Paying a webmaster to edit your site frequently can get very expensive, especially for those of you that are building your online business "on a shoestring". Designing a website may seem to be quite a task for a non- techie. Well, it doesn't have to be, even if you know nothing about web design or HTML coding (the language of web pages). Website design software known as "WYSIWYG" (What You See Is What You Get) is available to let beginner design a great site, without having to pay a webmaster. The GUI (Graphical User Interface) allows user to see exactly what changes in coding look like, on fly. Instead of writing HTML code to form pages,(etc.), simple tools are used to easily create (after you've spent time to learn how a very complex piece of software works) website pages, place images and text where you want them, work with color "palates", and create "header tags" that will allow you to get ranked highly (with a lot of work) in major search engines. These programs have many features that you may think don't apply to a productive sales-oriented website, but you may find them useful to create other sites that may not be sales sites, but are more image and effects-driven by design.
Purchasing a good website creation program will set you back from $100 US to over $500 US, depending on functionality. This wise investment, though, will pay for itself many times, giving you an edge over competition. Paying a designer for just one website (plus a few edits) can cost you as much or more as buying and learning to use a great website design tool. These programs involve quite a learning process to become a proficient user, but if you weren't willing to learn for good of building a successful online business, you wouldn't be reading this article right now, would you?
