Until recently, building a web site was not much fun. You had to know HTML, FTP and have good design skills. When it was finished you had to register a domain name and choose a web hosting service.
The alternative was to get a web site designer to do all of this for you but at a price. Generally a good price!
That was how things used to be done.
However, now the technology has moved on and anybody who is prepared can learn how to create a web site themselves. Today, we have all-in-one packages that allow you to build a web site, research the keywords, submit it to the search engines and build an online store in the one package.
The advantages of these all-in-one packages are that they save money as all the tools are in the same package. It saves a lot of time learning how to set up your business and it is easy to run because of the brilliance of the tools at your disposal.
The key to these packages is that instead of grappling with the complex technology of the internet, you can ignore all this and get on with the vital business of marketing your online business.
Even web site designers are using these all-in-one packages to save time and passing them on to their customers who assume building a web site is a technical matter best left to the web site designer!
