One of the most frequent questions that I am asked is, “What made you decide to launch a website, and how did you get started? How can I build a website?” So it’s only fitting that I address this one while Savvy Online Shoppers group is still in its infancy.
I have been involved in a number of network marketing and mlm programs in the past, and partly because of that background, I was invited to partner with the other writer/researchers to launch a website that provide the ‘straight skinny’ on products, services, and yes… even programs that promise to help you make money on the internet.
Mind you, none of us who had this rather ambitious idea had any previous experience in website design, in fact, we are still learning. Therefore, as it was necessary to acquire such skills, we partnered with an educational firm called Wealthy Affiliate who has an online training program that teaches step by step website design. (They also offer website hosting and have a multitude of tools for the aspiring internet entrepreneur.)
As I mentioned previously, having been involved in a number of network marketing programs that made rather spectacular claims, I was somewhat skeptical. However, I found that the training program that takes you all the way through the initial process of setting up your own website, and actually establishing an online presence was not only made relatively painless and fairly simple, but it was FREE. You are ‘sampling’ the result at savvyonlineshoppers.com currently. By no means a ‘finished work’, it will continue to grow and evolve as we develop and hone our web design skills, but I am here to say that the tools and web templates truly are ‘first-rate’ and make it easy to get started online.
