First off I am not at all interested in using leadpages.com or anything like it. I would rather take the time to learn a new skill than spend a bunch of money every month for the rest of my life.
What I need: Basically what I need is the ability to create nice single page websites to sell info products. Basically I only need to know enough to make a nice sales page so I can start selling products on clickbank. Also, I want to make squeeze pages which will also be one single page with Aweber integrated onto it.
Please, if you know what is best for me to learn please let me know.
Should I learn wordpress, or should I learn html & css & whatever else I would need to know?
Please consider what would be the cheapest route also. I know wordpress would take less time to learn, but if I could learn how to make a nice single page website with coding I feel like that would be better, but I don't know anything about building a website so I don't know if it will take years of study, months, weeks, days, or hours.
If you are unsure please do not answer, but if you yourself knows how to make a simple sales page and squeeze page I would greatly appreciate it if you would let me know if I should go with wordpress, or learn how to build the site on my own. Please give me an estimate about what I will be spending with both options also.
Thanks in advance.
I've studied everything I could ten times over for the last few years, and I've played with some stuff and got some results with internet marketing, but I have never tried my big ideas. My ideas that I know will actually start making what's in my head a reality.
I realize I won't even try my ideas because of the whole web development issue.
For example I need something this simple, and I would like it to be around this quality. A little worse would be okay too, but I would be happy with this quality. Text That Girl by Race dePriest - OFFICIAL SITE that's not my niche, but it was the first site I could find that wasn't done incredibly well with video and great design and the whole 9 yards.
For my squeeze page I would be happy with something as simple as this here's the whole address The Motley Fool: Special FREE Report I would like to beable to make something a bit nicer, but at least I would be able to start taking action and learning the game of internet marketing, and I could always keep learning how to make my stuff nicer.
I do want my stuff to be nice enough though, I don't want to put out something so bad it's just ridiculous.
I would be okay with a worse sales page than the example I put, but for the squeeze page I wouldn't be happy with anything worse than the example I gave. Please keep that in mind.
All replies are greatly appreciated but I would like the most for someone who knows how to use wordpress and can code a site from scratch to respond because they know both sides and they will know what will be the best for me.
I'm leaning towards taking the extra time to learn how to code my own sites but if it's going to take years to learn how to make something as simple as the examples I gave I may have to look into wordpress and plugins and all that.
I'm completely inexperienced, and this is the last real hurdle I need to jump so I can get started with what I've been moving towards for the last 2 years.
Please let me know if I should focus all of my time on wordpress, or on coding. And if on coding what should I learn specifically like html, xhtml, css, html5, jquery, java script, idk what else there is, but please give me specifics on what to learn to be able to create what I need to create.
Again, any and all responses are greatly appreciated.
