So I set out making an awesome looking site for this client only to find out that their REAL goal is to increase profits by making online sales, NOT having a flashy design. Having a great looking site and having a search engine friendly “selling machine” are two very different things.
The Beauty of Open Source – My top 5 picks. I also suggest other software like Joomla, Drupal, PHPCoin, GIMP, LINUX, and many more. I plan to write more about these in the future but I wanted to mention the top 5 Open Source programs that I use most.
Unless you have thousands of dollars to “risk” in marketing (which may or may not work), the best thing to do is build a great looking website, optimize it for SEO ranking and then relax, be patient, and watch your numbers grow over time.
