Do You Need to Learn Computer Programming To Be A Successful Internet Marketer?

The answer to the question, ‘Do I need to learn programming?’ is:
It depends. It depends on what exactly you mean by programming.
You need to know a little bit of web programming like HTML and
Javascript so that you do not need to depend on someone else for
additions and editing your work (if you intend to build your own
website). Those two languages are some of the basics that
everyone should know.

If you’re referring to software programming then the answer is:
No you do not need to learn programming. You do not need to learn
it to get ahead as it is usually the concept or the idea which
can make you money and not a programming tool or language.

Further, the world is getting more and more specialized. In order
stay in tune with it, you need to find your niche and build with
it. Nobody can be good at everything. It's about delegation.
Unless you plan to become a professional programmer, and getting
a formal education for it, leave development up to other
experienced developers.

Additionally, from a practical standpoint, it is dangerous for
everyone to try to do web programming. Some of the coding, for
example one of the variables the tell-a-friend script pulls from
the form is openly included in the message it sends out. The
problem with that is if someone who knows what they’re doing,
with regard to programming gets a hold of it, they could easily
recode the tell-a-friend form into an open spam relay. It is a
script with a major hole just sitting there waiting to be
exploited. That's the risk you run when you don't understand the
ramifications of every line of code. If you do not have the time
or desire to learn serious coding, and some basic code security
techniques, you will only make life harder for other netizens and
in the end, for yourself.

So unless you plan to become a professional programmer and take
the time to study these things, there’s really no need to learn
programming. Rather, hire someone who is a professional and let
them do the work for you. Finding a professional programmer is
easy too. All you need to do is visit Freelancer
and put out a bid for your project. You'll get programmers from
all over the world quoting on your project. Entrepreneurs use
them all the time and have wonderful results. Hiring someone is
not only far more effective, but it leverages your role as the
project manager and takes you out of the creator mindset.
