London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 20, 2008 -- Hundreds of thousands of people have lost their jobs around the world in the past few months, with economists predicting that this trend is set to continue for some time. The impact of the global credit crunch has led some people to consider being their own boss and thus, starting an online business.
However, one of the biggest hurdles they face is a lack of technical awareness of computer languages normally needed to build a website, including HTML, CSS and PHP.
This needn't be a problem, says Seltzer Cole, founder of Newlaunch.net: "Advances in software development mean that today, someone with no knowledge of web design software can build their own all-singing, all-dancing website in just a few minutes."
He added: "At Newlaunch.net, we provide a range of services allowing anyone to get online in a very short time. Someone can design their own site for free with adverts or choose a paid-for package from less than $10 a month or $80 a year, with a domain name, up to five websites, dozens of templates, an image gallery, video jukebox, MP3 player, forum, live chat and hundreds of widgets. They can also make money from their site using Google Adsense.
There's absolutely no reason why someone who wants to start their own business can't get online today!"
