Internet Marketing
Trying to figure out this whole web thing can be overwhelming. There are so many websites, so many options, so much to read. Learning about web design, graphics, optimization and promotion takes a lot of effort and time - time collectors would rather spend buying and selling antiques and collectibles.

Let me help. It's what I do.

I'm online everyday, reading all I can about Internet Marketing, design and promotion. I've been at this web game for many years now, and I've managed to learn a few things, which I am happy to share with you.

The most valuable lesson I've learned is that you must "Give, then receive." So that's what I do. My goal is not to develop your website for you, but provide you with the information you need to do the work yourself.
