Everyone loves a freebie, especially at Christmas. That’s why I’ve decided to make my books free on the 25th December.

How NOT to make a website

If you run your own website, why not take an hour out from the Christmas presents, Christmas dinner and Christmas films on TV and have a read of “How NOT to make a Website”.

The book is written in a non technical way to help you get the most out of your website and improve your visitors experience. Hopefully the book will give you ideas and motivation to improve your website ready for the new start in the new year.
