It’s not enough to have a website. To compete and succeed, we need at least one or more of the following: A blog, Facebook & Twitter pages, a YouTube/Vimeo channel. The key to navigating these option is to determine what would suit your needs. Not everyone needs them all, and that’s a common mistake. We tend to feel the need to compete in every online market whether it’s necessary or not. The result can end up creating more headaches just by trying to update everything on a regular basis. I have extensive knowledge and experience with communicating a presence online. I can also determine what would suit you best. I can create and (if you want) maintain your online presence allowing you to stay focused on your business – and give you peace of mind as well!
Blogs aren’t just for sharing your random thoughts with the world. Blogs have evolved into amazing communication tools for your personal and business needs. Your website and blog can be one and the same, and effectively keep you in contact with your clients and customers. Whether you prefer WordPress, Typepad, eBlogger or any other format, I can create your blog/website for you, teach you how to keep it updated (it’s easy) and/or handle the maintenance for you.
You control the look and feel of the blog (see example on the right). I will guide you and make suggestions based on my experience and my eye for design. However, the final design will be yours to approve and will reflect your particular personality and brand.
As noted above, blogs and websites can be one and the same. Or, you can separate them out. A website can be very simple or very intricate. It’s up to you. I find that in most cases, the simpler the better. Give your customers what you want them to see on that homepage, then let them drill down for more details. I can create your site for you, or I can revamp and update your existing site.
My experience goes back to the days before the great web authoring programs like Dreamweaver. I am well versed in html coding, (the backbone of all websites). This knowledge gives me the unique ability to troubleshoot where others cannot. I’ve created and maintained several websites and blogs and have learned the ins and outs of the various styles and formats. Let me know what you need, and I’ll deliver!
That’s the big buzz phrase. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, they can all blur together. I can bring it back into focus for you. Creating and maintaining a presence via the social networking outlets can drive business to your door. It can also be fun and creative. Need a Facebook page? Done! Need a Twitter account to tweet your customers? Done! It all ties in together, with that blog and website too. I’ll take care of it all for you.
