Why I “Hate” E-Commerce (Catalog) Sites

Maybe “hate” is a little strong… but I definitely “dislike” e-commerce/catalog type sites for lots of reasons… But mainly these three: Problem #1 – Product, Product, Product They only ever seem to be about “product”!

Make Or Break Internet Business Models

There’s a bewildering array of different “things” you could do online… of different business models you could implement with your online business.

However, the trouble begins when you […]

Domain Name Basics

For example, the very recognisable Google.com! A domain name is, simply, a name, followed by a dot (.) followed by an […]

What’s The Biggest Single Reason People Don’t Make It Online?

In the offline world, ask any retailer why things might be a bit “slow”… and you’ll end up with heaps of different reasons! I think they have a different one for every day of the year! And in the online world, if you were to ask e-tailers (is there such a word?) why things aren’t […]
