Magic Lamp Productions' Gene Grossman started creating websites for his own video productions in 1996, and at the time of this writing (2010) has 94 of his domains hosted on servers, drawing customers from Australia to Zambia.
The main benefit of watching this program before you etch your plans in concrete is to learn from the many mistakes that Gene made... and he readily admits to making almost every one possible.
The positive suggestions he makes during this 90-minute program are all as the result of his having learned the hard way - by making the mistakes and paying for them by the increased time required and money lost in re-working the web pages.
