video enhanced system for
complete beginners to launch a business web site even if you don't know a
link from a button! "
If You Can Type, You Can Make a Web Site.
Hi, my name is Milana and I am the owner of the
First Business Web Site.
If you are completely new to web design, you came to
the right place. Most business owners who want to have a web site hire a
web designer. They are afraid it is too hard, takes too long to learn, and
HTML sounds just like a rocket science.
The truth is, if you have worked with a computer
before and surfed the 'net for a while, you can build your own web site in a
matter of days!
I have created a product that is based on a
simplified approach for complete beginners. It takes you step by step
through the process of making your first web site. From choosing and
registering a domain name, adding text, pictures and links, to putting it on
- You will NOT need to learn HTML to make your
- You will NOT have to buy any expensive
- You will be able to change your web site ANY
time you want!
Simple Video Instructions
But here is the BEST part: every step of the way is
demonstrated through a video clip that any computer can play. Want to know
how to make a link? Click on this little camera and play a video, then try
doing it yourself. Want to know how to resize a graphic? Play a clip and
you will see me do it. Many people who are using this e-book told me,
"Milana, it's like having you right next to me by my
As a former music teacher who wouldn't even touch a
computer for years, I know what it feels like to be scared of technology. I
didn't want to read all the techno-talk. I just wanted someone to SHOW me
how to do it. Years later I remembered it. Instead of creating another book
on web design, I decided to add videos for a faster and easier learning
process. Just look at some of the things you will learn in the video
- Adding text to your web page and
changing its size and colors in seconds!
- Inserting pictures and links by a
click of a button!
- Making a link so people could
e-mail you directly from your web site
- Saving and viewing your web page
in a browser (just the way your visitors will see it!)
- Enhancing your web page by adding
- Inserting separation lines and a
list of items, benefits or features
- Making a table and adding text
and pictures inside it
- Editing simple HTML code behind
your web page
- Putting your web site online, so
everyone in the world could access it
Let me just say this: there is a hard way and an easy
way of learning things. Reading a tutorial full of technical jargon and
confusing procedures is a hard way. Watching someone else do it right in
front of your eyes - IS THE EASY WAY!

What do you need to create your own web site? Three
- web editor (to create it)
(editor note: It's in the "CRASH" package)
- text editor (to modify it)
(You can just use Notepad -- on any Windows)
- FTP program (to put it online)
(DITTO on this too!)
Netscape Composer is the best web editor for
beginners. Best of all, Netscape Composer is FREE! You have to pay for
most of the other web editors. But this program can be downloaded free
along with Netscape Communicator - a popular Internet browser. Netscape
Composer looks exactly like MS Word. Same toolbars, same menus, same
interface. It is a web page editor that allows you to insert text and
pictures as if you were creating a regular document. It is one of the
WYSIWYG programs - "What You See Is What You Get". It is much easier to use
than other web page editors, and you are a complete beginner - you won't
feel intimidated by it. If you get this interactive manual on a CD -
Netscape Composer will come with it, so you won't have to wait for it to
Text editor - you already have it! If you
own a Windows system, then Notepad or Word Pad can be used to modify your
web pages. If you work with a Macintosh, then Simple Text or Page Spinner
will work perfectly.
Finally, FTP, the magic tool that makes your
web site visible to anyone in the world! WS_FTP is my choice, but there are
many more others available - also completely FREE.
Of course, you will need a graphics program to
design your own images. But, believe me, the Internet world has been
extremely generous to web designers. You can find tons of free pictures and
web graphics to use on your web site, and I provide a list of my favorite
places to get them.
If you have ever heard of the term "sticky site",
you might have wondered what that means. People "stick" to your web site
when there is something for them to do. And when there is something for
them to do - they stay on your site longer. And the longer they stay - the
more likely they will buy from you.
One of the most important things that will make your
site "sticky" is making it interactive. Let your visitors ask a question on
the forum, or offer them to participate in a poll... These features are fun
and extremely easy to set up. I will guide you through how to:
- set up your own message board in
- let your visitors send you
information directly from your web site
- add more interactive tools to
your site - completely FREE!
E-commerce. A modern buzz-word. Learn what
it means, and how to start selling directly from your web site. Accepting
credit cards online can be a nightmare, or a breeze. This manual points you
in the right direction and reveals 12 important questions you need to ask
your credit card processing company before doing any business with them.
You must have heard this word before - HTML.
What is it? It is a language of the Web. I can prove to you that you can
write your own HTML in seconds if you decide to! Chapter 7 - "HTML is for
dummies!", will take you through the basic HTML tags and show you how to put
them together to make a web page. You will also discover the easiest way to
change the HTML behind your web page using your own text editor.
But how do you make your web site dazzle
with colorful professional graphics? Do you make them yourself? Sure you
could. Better yet, use graphics created and given away for free by graphic
artists and web designers. My list of the best places on the Web to get
free graphics, will turn your site into a top-notch professional looking
site in minutes!
And for those who want to learn more...
If you already had some experience with web sites,
you might get your beyond basics questions answered in this manual. You
will find out how to:
- Use an image instead of a color
as a background

your web page
- Redirect one page to another (in
case your web site address changes...)
- Use a dark colored background and
still see the text (creates a great special effect on your web site)
- Add a music background to your
web page to enhance your visitors' experience

"Milana, your new e-book is an absolute goldmine
for ANYONE - even if they have NO experience whatsoever in web designing!
But the most surprising aspect is your price; for the information you
spill, you should be charging AT LEAST DOUBLE your current price, and
that's just putting it mildly...
If there's anyone out there that wants to design
websites - and design them FAST, they NEED your e-book NOW!
"Milana, where were you and your book five years
and $25,000 ago? To think that I could have done it all myself brings
tears to my eyes... There it was. I finally had a down to earth, easy to
read, easy to follow, made up of clear and concise language, with step by
step instructions I could follow. And more than that, it was witty,
entertaining and serious at the same time. Milana's approach is light and
airy and I don't feel as if she is talking down to me..."
