I find that some money can be made from this. It depends on how well you design your website and how well you encourage your visitors to click on the banners. Your website has to be carefully designed and the wordings selected to induce people to go to the merchant you represent. Some merchants pay 5%, some 10%, and some more. By carefully choosing the merchant to match the contents of your website you will get more click-throughs. More click-throughs means more sales. It’s a numbers game.

Making e-books presented a need for a completely different range of knowledge and skills that are built up upon each other. It is not as easy as it looks. For those who do not know much about computers, Internet and web designing, it can be quite a struggle!

There?s only one way to learn HTML, and that?s to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty with some actual code. But fear not: HTML has one of the easiest learning curves you?ll ever come across and you can create a basic web page with only a couple of lines. Writing code by hand also ensures that you write the leanest code possible, which is the ultimate aim of all HTML geeks.

Let’s assume that you have got this already, because the internet is full of web hosting companies, and it is too big a subject to be discussed here. For under monthly you can get a host that will provide you with web design software, email addresses, autoresponders, a shopping cart system and a recommended credit card merchant plus full automation of your site.

Too many ads will chase them away. People visit websites for information and have a natural aversion to seeing adverts right away. Once you have provided them with useful information, and suggested ways in which they can solve their problems, then you can offer products that can help them, but not before.

I don’t use anything else whenever I want to design a website. It’s an extremely simple software to build websites. But simple does not mean it produces mediocre results. In fact, many smart website owners have been using XSitePro 2 over the years and loving it. It’s just that good. You have to try the software to believe it. No more complicated codes to handle in Dreamweaver, no more complex designs and certainly no more delaying your website construction only to lose traffic. Do everything in XSitePro 2 in a point and click fashion. The point is, it’s a very simple tool to use but it produces fast, reliable and professional results!

All three companies offer trial versions that you can download and use for a month and, as far as I could tell, they were all full working versions. To say ‘point and click’ is really an understatement, because these three programs are so easy to use, it’s more like just playing around in Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro.

If you opt for one of the less expensive hosts you will need website design software. Unless you know html, that should offer a wysiwyg option to make it easier for you. You will also need some means of handling graphics and an ftp (file transfer protocol) software to enable you to upload files to your website.
