Simple, easy and inexpensive is what I'm interested in.

Basically I'm looking to create a simple one page site with a "buy" button on the bottom (or as I read about yesterday, a link to paypal to buy). I'm not good at all the "website" set-up stuff.

So many "gurus" say you have to "offer a free multi step tutorial or course, get email addresses, build your list, work your back-end, etc." ... but GEEZE! Can't I just start with the basics and build up from there? To me, the basics would be:

1. create a one page sales letter with a "buy" button
2. advertise, test (maybe adwords or ebay?)
3. convert a few visitors to buyers (easier said than done of course, so maybe I should say "make a sale ... or not, and learn from it"?)

I'm just looking to get started. Simple, easy and inexpensive. Just the basics, and then improve the site, sales, from there.

Sure, you can do that. Here are a couple of examples...

Gordon Jay Alexander's guide to "HOTSHEETS. How to Start Your Information Empire" - (it's about as simple as you can get!)

Michael Ross's guide to "The Art of Leverage" - (slightly more complicated, but still simple!)

I can tell you there have been plenty of sales of both reports from these two sites, and customers seem pretty happy with them...

(Disclaimer: I make a slice of the profit from these websites...)

However, doing all the other things you've read about will probably improve your profits. So - while it's more complicated, it's often worth doing.

I hope that helps.

Best wishes,
