We've banged on before here about how important it is that you get your web presence sorted out properly, usually meaning that you've got to put some effort into making it visible to the search engines so that people can find you.
I've just found a site that deals with the step before that and I have to say that I think it's actually a very impressive site. It's all about affordable web site design and just from the first page I can see that it's been well though through and designed itself.
For example, almost immediately they ask whether a business even needs a web site at all. And they provide and answer which I should have known already, indeed did, but had never consciously realised. For most people under 25 never actually use the phone book or call information at all. They look up whatever it is that they want online. Now that is important information, if you don't have a web presence you're cutting yourself off from a whole segment of the market: and the one which has the highest disposable income too, a lot of the time.
There's more to it than insights like this though, of course. They take you through the steps and jargon as if you've never heard any of it before. Which, if you're just setting up your first site is probably true, you don't know what a URL is, or a web hosting service.
They also then go on to tell you which are the good services to use as hosts, where you can get all the ecommerce tools you need and so on.
What I like about the site is that everything is couched in beginners language, as it should be, but there are still lessons and tips useful to those with much greater knowledge and experience, like the one above about the under 25s.
Strongly recommended as a useful, even excellent, resource.
