    Hi Jack

    You can make a simple web page by learning html see http://www.htmlgoodies.com/primers/html/   It only takes about a week to learn.

    You can get free web site hosting at www.20m.com.

    Ideas to get web page visitors see http://www.helptosucceed.love-au.com/

     Hi All,

    I would like to develop an e-commerce web-site to sell all types of promotional products.
    How do I get started? I am not very computer savvy, but need to learn so I can make  my own changes.

    Where do I begin? You help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi Jack,

    I recently launched my e-commerce site, in fact we are still working on a handful of elements still, but we are about 90% complete.  My web designer and I have been working on this since July.  An e-commerce site build is no easy task.
    I would recommend researching "small business e-commerce web designers" (or a keyword phrase along those lines).  You need to keep in mind search engine friendliness and usability.

    There are a number of template solutions available, but you have to be careful with those as often they are restrictive and not very search engine friendly.  There are also a handful of Open Source solutions available.  Open Source is free and supported by a voluntary group of programmers.  An example of an Open Source shopping cart is Zen-Cart.com

    I don`t want to get too long winded here.  Do you have any specific questions I can address?  Again, having just gone through this process, I`m happy to share what I`ve learned.
