DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

Tech Support Pits:
From Carrie=== Hi Webby, There is so much written about making big money on the Internet. Since most of that is in spam, how much of that can be believed ? I want just a small business without the stress that comes with a big company. Is there something that would fit for me? Thanks Carrie Dear Carrie 8) As you gain experience from selling to relatives and friends, promote your goods on your site and in your newsletter. For that to work, you need credibility. OK, so we covered the address and the on-line business card to start building respectability and credibility. Next is a newsletter, but before you get too far into that, you should nail down what you will provide for the visitors money. Your product or service does NOT have to be unique or superb. Just look at all the F.O.R.D. dealerships ! They all make good money, without ever being accused of having a unique or superb product.. The money is in the presentation. Look at They sell the same books as your downtown book store, and they make Billions of dollars by presenting the books better and making shopping easier. Next, look at how a lot of sites make money by selling a handful of personally selected books from Amazon. They put together a nice selection of books on a narrow topic, saving the visitor the time to hunt all over for those books. All they provide is a menu of those books, brief descriptions of them and their own recommendations. And the links to those books at Amazon. Amazon does the credit card stuff and the shipping, and the referer site gets a commission. You will NOT get rich if that is all you do! You'll make $20 - $200 a month, but it's easy and takes very little time and effort. However, the main reason I mentioned it is to dispell the myth that you need a unique or superb product. Just pick a theme that you can get excited about, and find a niche within that theme. Keep in mind that you can always add more stuff or services to your offering. Don't let that hold you back. Just get started and begin learning and making money. Have FUN! Dear Webby
