E-commerce and Internet Retailing are still growing at a phenomenal rate – and a complete industry has grown up teaching individuals how to make an additional income stream by selling “stuff” via the Internet.
But in the order of 95% of people have tried to set up sales websites themselves or even those who attend “world” or “global” Internet training seminars subsequently don’t make it through to the point of making money online.
Research conducted recently by Abicos has revealed that there is one major underlying cause – and it is that on the majority of such courses, the “Internet gurus” teaching various courses seem to have all forgotten their early days and just how complicated and difficult it is to actually do the “nuts and bolts” of putting a website online, connect it to a payment-taking service like PayPal and drive traffic to it using something like Google AdWords or Facebook advertising.
“Because these ‘gurus’ know how to do this part almost in their sleep – and mostly have other people now to do it for them, they just gloss over it and deliver their more advanced material. But it’s rather like giving someone the keys to a car and telling them to drive to Glasgow without teaching them how to drive first”, says Phil Turtle at Abicos.
To actually put a basic retail website online requires a grasp of a lot of new and unfamiliar stuff - like choosing and registering a search-engine-friendly domain name, opening a hosting account, using an HTML editor to build or customise a website, using FTP to upload the website, generating keywords and Meta-tags – and grappling with the complexities of Google AdWords (the last of which has been known to reduce even professionals to tears).
In response to this missing-link in the realm of Internet Training, Mik Dunne of Abicos has researched and written a very simple 20-Step screenshot-by-screenshot training manual which will take even a relative computer novice from zero to retail-website online in a single day
To mark the launch of the Internet Business For Beginners System, Abicos are bundling a ready-made website and a selection of DVD –based products to sell on a 30 day free-trial basis.
