I have spoken with many of my fans and readers over the years that are getting by month to month on a mortgage and are always calling me to ask how to make a basic website. I went through enough accounting of home owners over the years with afraid of a big firm with a contract to get their website towed by fee's when all they needed was a simple product or services page and a PayPal link to make the small difference of money per month to be stress free from worries about the bank.
Read this book and learn how to make your own website in one weekend flat, and not need to get involved in a contract or agreement with anyones firm except your service provider. This guide will take a small business owner through all of the steps involved in creating a web advertising campaign, starting with getting licensed and getting a Tax ID, formatting both your web site and classified ad, a recommended format for a product page web site, formatting your blog and the best part custom programming credit card payment links.
There are extra sections on adding your web site to your business card, working with templates, a chapter on Adobe Photoshop tips, filing for copyrights and trade marks, copyrighting your logo and you are done.
There really wasn't much in the way of programming here, mostly just how to run a Web design business. if that's what you want, that's great, but the author seemed a little too eager to tell you what you want to hear ($120k/year!) without going into any of the hard details.
Also, the reader cleared his throat and I believe spit at one point. Couldn't they have done another take? That strikes me as unprofessional.
other than those gripes it wasn't bad for less than $5. You'd be better off with a real book, I think.
