Are you an online marketer? Are you familiar with CSS and HTML? You should, facts have shown that CSS and HTML are prerequisites to be a successful online marketer.

Meet Ian, he’s a digital technology maniac, entrepreneur and owns several websites. When it comes to marketing, I have full confidence in his expertise. He’s a very creative individual and a constant learner of new things. He built all his websites himself, although he did consult me on a number of things regarding domains, web hosting and other issues pertaining to web development, he was able to quickly grasp the essence of them all. But when it comes to HTML and CSS, he experienced difficulties.

I am not an expert on HTML or CSS related matters. Like Ian, at times I too experience difficulties when facing these two things. When he’s looking to give his sites numerous make overs in their designs, he inevitably has to deal with HTML and CSS, and therein lies the problem.

Ian is simply incapable of dealing with the various CSS and HTML related issues. He ends up having to pay web developer with the necessary skillset to address his needs. Multiply that with the number of websites that he owns, then you get the idea of just how high the cost of maintenance for him is.
