This week I talked to a former associate (and new client). He has owned a successful business for years and (on his own accord) realized he needs a website. So he used a rather popular website builder that offered very easy-to-use features that help you create your own website. They'll even host it for you for only $5 a month. No, it doesn't look like a professional built it, but this is really just to establish a web presence. That's the selling point: it more work and less professional, but it's an inexpensive way to have a web presence. Right? Well maybe. You don't have a web presence if no one can find you on the web. Pretty soon he called me up asking about SEO because he couldn't find his site ... neither could Google.
Ok, week two has been slow. I had a crisis of confidence and a pretty rough weekend. So, there is only one step more listed below. The good news is that it's got 3 pictures! Take a look. Let me know what you think.
