Have You Ever Wondered How to Build Websites?

Today I would like to ask you a question. Have you ever wondered how to build a website? I know I did for a long time.

Back in the mid 90’s I had a friend that built websites and I asked him about building one for me. I remember him asking what kind of website I wanted. I had no idea. David told me to think about it and let him know. I thought about it for awhile and decided I wanted one so I could sell stuff. I didn’t know what I wanted to sell or how to go about finding something to sell. David invited over to his house one Saturday morning and the two of us made a list of things I was interested in. You know what I mean. Hunting, Fishing, Bowling, ect. ect… After that, we made a few phone calls trying to find a supplier I could work with. It didn’t happen. All of the suppliers had minimum order amounts I couldn’t afford at the time.

Things are different now. Not because I have a bunch of money, but now, there are suppliers that will drop ship their products directly to the customer for you. There are also thousands (if not millions) of affiliate programs available online. Not sure what affiliate marketing is? See my post titled “Introducing Affiliate Marketing” here.

There are over 1 billion websites on the world wide web today. This milestone was first reached in September of 2014, as confirmed by NetCraft in its October 2014 Web Server Survey. The number had subsequently declined, reverting back to a level below 1 billion (due to the monthly fluctuations in the count of inactive websites) before reaching again and stabilizing above the 1 billion mark starting in March of 2016. From 1 website in 1991 to 1 billion in 2014.

As of 2015 the worlds population is estimated at 7,324,782,225. That’s just under 7.4 Billion people. Does It also means 1 out of every 7.4 people have a website of some kind? No. It is also estimated that as much as 75% of the websites on the world wide web are no longer active.

What does that mean for you?

Less competition. Think about it, 75% of 1 Billion is 750 Million. That leaves just 250 million websites. I know that’s still a big number but they’re stretched across every little niche you can think of. It also means there’s plenty of room for you, but I still haven’t answered your question. You’re still wondering how to build a website. Let’s get to that now.
