I know the title of this article is going to fly in the face of reason and possibly ruffle a few web developers feathers but if you want to have a successful online business, remember this:

Even the best website designer cannot build you A Successful  Online Business. ONLY YOU CAN.

There is a reason why I say this, and it is drawn from my nearly 20 years experience in working as a website developer.

You see, most people who hire a website designer make the same mistake:

They think that as soon as their website is built, traffic will automatically follow.

Hands up if you think also think that.

Even the most competent and qualified website developer, who can build the best looking websites, cannot guarantee that the website he or she builds will attract any visitor to its pages.

If you have talked to a developer who has assured you of the contrary, then you have been mislead. The design of a website is only a fraction of what is required to build a successful online business.

Designing a website is easy. Making it successful requires a lot of work.

That is not to say that web developers are a dying breed nor is it to imply that they are incapable of generating traffic to the websites they work on.

But the traffic they generate, the rise in rank in the various search engines for judiciously selected keywords they target, the implementation of social media methodology designed to increase social signals, the email building list process, the pay per click campaigns… all that can take weeks, months, or even years. Web developer who can do these things are worth their weight in gold and their clients are always happy to pay them their monthly fees, since they are making money themselves.

Here is something else that most people who want to build an online business have in common:

They don’t have a lot of money to get started.  Over the past 12 months, I have done an informal, in-house survey with all my customers, as to how much money they had when they created their first website and the average amount they told me they had at their disposal was between $2000 and $3000.

Hands up if that amount of money rings a bell with you.

If that is the case, shouldn’t you be as frugal as you possibly and not spend all your money on webdesign?


Even the best designed website is not, on it’s own merit, going to bring you any traffic.

Building a website is a start, a good start but my advise to you is to start small, stay away from web designers, create your own website if you can, and if you don’t have the time nor the inclination to start learning about webdesign..

Let me create one for you. For free. All you’ll be paying for is hosting.

If you are interested, click on the following link to find out how you too can get My Free Website Design.

But before you take that offer up, and I think you should, here are a few things you should ask yourself:

  1. There are millions of other blogs out there. What would yours offer then all the others already don’t?
  2. How do your products or services compare with the competition?
  3. Are you sure absolutely that what you are selling is of value to anyone?
  4. Do you know who your targeted audience is?
  5. Do you know anything about getting traffic to a website?
  6. Have you spent any time researching the competition?
  7. Do you know that anything about keywords and more importantly do you know which keywords are likely to bring you the traffic you will need to succeed.
  8. Are you comfortable with social media?
  9. Do you know what email marketing is all about?

And here is the most important question of them all:

What’s The Point Of A Great Website Design If Your Business Model Stinks

If you have asked yourself the above questions, and are comfortable that you are ready to proceed, click on the following blue link to let me design your site for free. All you’ll need to pay for is hosting, which is something you would have to pay anyway.

Why am I offering to something for free?

First of all, it’s not entirely free as there are reasonable hosting costs involved. But beyond that, this free webdesign offer is real.

And I am offering that deal because I want to become the web developer that you will continue to hire once you start to see real traffic coming in to your site, because I know that when that is the case, you’ll have the money to pay me,

And because, after you have read through this article, and answered the many questions posted above, and you are still interested to get your online business on the way, then there’s a good chance that will be successful.

And then, I’ll more than make up for wording for you for free, to get you started.
