"Have you been reading the Doonesbury columns lately where Mike has to put up a Web site in one weekend? Are you in the same boat? Dr. Ralph Wilson has answers in his treasure trove of articles about the convergence of the Web and small business.
"The Tipster particularly appreciated one of the original articles by Dr. Wilson (OK, let's drop the honorific and call him Ralph). Aside from a mouthful of a title,
12 Web Page Design Decisions Your Business or Organization Will Need to Make is clearly written and cleverly designed. It even incorporates a form that helps you figure out what you really want in your Web presence. Ralph also publishes a free bi-weekly e-mail newsletter, Web Marketing Today. He wrote in by e-mail that the site is his way of "serving the Internet community." And the Tipster has faith that Ralph is not a cheeseball, especially after noting his reasonable rates and non-spamming policies." -- The Tipster, Web Review's Tip Sheet for December 8, 1995

I have a confession to make. I take Ralph Wilson's (who I affectionately refer to as Dr. Ralph) Web Marketing Information Center for granted. It's a tremendous site and resource -- with links
to more than 300 marketing-related articles. But its real value
is in the insights written by Dr. Ralph himself, who has a personal
and practical grasp of successful online marketing tactics. It's
a site that will take several visits -- and every one you make
will be well worth it. -- Charles Sayer, editor of Who's Marketing Online
