Testimonials and Reviews

I am a part time artist and my ‘day job’ is running a women’s clothing boutique. I was given a copy of this book and I was really happy to find that there’s a lot of information I can use for BOTH my businesses. It’s gotten me really motivated to put more energy into promoting my websites for both my art and my clothing business, and *maybe* take the big leap and start selling my artwork on the web. I learned a LOT from reading this book.

I took a workshop based on the material in this book and found it to be excellent. Very valuable to anyone setting up a web site. I’m looking forward to getting the book.
