I don't know much about computers, let alone HTML code. What should I learn before opening my online store?

If you're the management type, you might just outsource the entire project, set the goals, pay the experts to build you a killer store, and watch the cash roll in. If you're in the real world, you'll want to learn some fundamentals and dig in a little so that you can keep your costs low and stay on top of the ever-changing Internet. The best management comes from being able to do the work but choosing, for other compelling reasons, not to. That way, no one will pull a fast one on you and you can step in when something goes wrong.

You should be familiar with how to use a computer and you should pick up some Internet experience. After you know your way around, you'll want to learn some HTML and how to use a basic HTML code editor. You don't need to be an expert but some basics will help. To gain this knowledge, you can start with this book. You should also look into some other books and check out some of the major online resources and guides listed throughout this book. There is a lot of learning to do, but there are some very good aides available—especially the ones listed in this book.
