Marketing At first glance someone might ask the question, don't you have to be a technical person to build a website? The answer is no. In the past few years there have been services and software developed that simplify this process. There are also people who will build a website for you at a reasonable price. Of course this depends on the complexity of your site. Realistic Expectations If you watch TV you have seen advertisements claiming Internet riches virtually overnight. When this doesn't happen people get frustrated and quit. They quit because they had a picture planted in their minds of getting rich fast. Actually, to start a Internet business is easy, the challenging part is to continue building it as you hit the bumps in the road. Week after week you keep writing and promoting your business, but hardly anyone comes to visit. You start to question if this really works, you wonder if you haven't been led down the wrong path.
