If you know anything at all about websites, no matter how little, chances are good that you are the “go to” person in your family or circle of friends when anyone has an Internet related question. Maybe you have a degree in web design, or maybe you just tinker with templates, but in this day and age ANY amount of knowledge is enough to send acquaintances in your direction when dealing with the mystical world of websites and HTML. “You should ask my friend, so and so. They know about that website stuff.”
Well, why not dig in a little and give them even more?
Since your friends and family are already coming to you with web related questions and problems, looking for advice on how to navigate the cyberworld, you are in a perfect position to take advantage of one of the many website reseller programs floating around on the Net. Instead of giving little tidbits of advice here and there, you can actually help your friends and family register and create their own websites.
You really do not need much to resell websites. Just a hosting service (who provides the servers and the software) and a group of interested people. They can bring their questions to you, and if you happen to not know the answer, you now have a customer support team you can call on to get your clients the information they need.
Website reseller programs exist for all levels of interest, from the small circles to the larger companies, but the goal of each is the same. To more easily find the people who want their own websites, and to make it as easy as possible to get them. Nearly all web hosting services sell directly to clients, but a huge number of providers are also instituting website reseller programs to help them reach more people through intermediaries with an interested potential client base. Intermediaries just like you.
