When it comes to setting up a website there a plenty of options.

This is for all skill levels whether you already know HTML and CSS or have no experience at all with HTML.

Did you know that you can have a website up in under 10 minutes on any host, a fully functional website of your own. Its easy and most of all the experience of setting up your own site is amazing. Do it yourself, create your own website. No HTML required!

If you already know HTML or want to go a step further there are several really great frameworks that can help you develop websites faster. Mobile responsive websites are essential now, being mobile ready is something every website needs. Its surprising easy to set this up with so many options online.

This course is designed as a guide to help you and inform you what is possible and what you can expect.

The above are the 3 main options that you have to decide and should look at when making that decision to create a website. It all depends on how much coding you want to do. If you are just starting out and want to get up and running quickly there is an option for that. You can use Content management systems like Wordpress which is relatively easy to setup and doesn't require coding knowledge. Let me show you how to get online quickly.

All websites are based in HTML, which is the fundamental structure for the web. HTML to structure the site, CSS to style and design the look and JavaScript for interaction. If you use a framework like bootstrap it will make it easier to format sites to be responsive to the screen size. Creating sites with bootstrap is quicker, but does require some knowledge of HTML and CSS.

Providing Smart digital solutions online since 2001. I am considered a true web technology expert. Having professional experience in a wide range of digital areas. Everything from Search Marketing, Video Marketing, Content creation, User Experience, application architecture, and web programming.

Understanding how users flow through the web and learning what drives users to interact online has been the cornerstone of what I do. The more seamless the process the better the user experience and the more likely they are to interact again and share their experiences.

After launching my first websites I quickly realized that to get traffic on your site you need to be able to market online. Research and using personal experimentation as to what are the most successful ways to effectively drive traffic to my websites, I was able to successfully build multiple success eCommerce sites. I used my expertise to provide Search Engine Marketing Services SEO to 100's of clients.

In the advent of Social Media in 2006, I had identified it as an excellent opportunity to drive traffic and connect with users. I created many successful sites that integrated with Myspace and then later into Facebook. I was able to monitize the traffic on several platforms, driving in some cases 10K+ clicks daily to the various platforms. I continued to perfect the art of Internet marketing and adapt to new technology and changes.

In 2008 I created my first YouTube video, and channel. Realizing that there was another great opportunity with video I have been experimenting with video marketing and video monization. Youtube being the second largest search engine has a very bright future. As technology progresses the trend has always been quicker, easier means of delivering content always wins out. Images beat out text as they are easier and quicker for us to process, videos beat out images being the most efficient means of getting content to users. As bandwidth increases, and more platforms that can even easier deliver videos become available videos will be the trend for the future.

Understanding technology provides a means to better connect with users.

Applications I've created have entertained, informed and engaged tens of millions of people. I have over billions of page views on various platforms, and have sent millions of click through visitors.

I have developed hundreds of web applications, from micro sites to enterprise level platforms.
