I thought about using the services of a Detroit web design company right off the bat when I decided to get a page done. But I had an employee who assured me that he could do the work because it is not hard to do at all. I trusted him. I even checked in on him at times to see how it was coming along, and for the most part, he seemed to be doing a somewhat adequate job. But I found out too soon that it is best to go with the pros instead.
Part of the problem with allowing a novice to make your page is that it can take a lot of time to get to the final completion stage. It is not as easy as one might assume. It may look pretty straightforward to place a photo in a certain spot on the page without any trouble, but then it can easily conflict with something else on the page and nothing lines up. I also asked my employee to set up a web contact form so that customers could use it to ask for quotes directly from our website, and he had trouble with that. In fact, it took him a few days to try figure out what the problem was. I knew that experts would be able to do something like that really quickly.
Realizing that I was spending money having one of my employees work on something for a month was not a wise idea. Our page did not look as professional as I would have liked as well. It was time to do the right thing, so I had him cease working on it and called some places that were nearby to ask for their help. After choosing a company to work with, I was happy to see that I had a fully functioning website within only a week with their help.
I put off getting any dental work done for about fifteen years. Oh, it was in the back of my mind that this was not the smartest move on my part, but I was willing to take my chances. After having more than one bad instance in a dentist chair, I was just too nervous. But then I woke up one morning with excruciating pain in my jaw. I tried taking a pain reliever, but that did not help. I had to do something quickly. I got online to look for a Grand Rapids dentist as soon as possible. I worried that I would need to wait days for anyone to see me, but the first place I called was so understanding when I told them about how bad the pain was. They got me in that very day to help me.
When I walked into the place that said they would see me, I looked around and noticed how cozy the place looked. Gone was the old utilitarian and very cold look of the dentistry practices that I had visited so many years earlier. There was a big screen TV on the wall. None of the typical doctor’s office music that I was used to hearing. The furniture was leather and so comfortable. The receptionist smiled warmly at me when she saw that I looked a little nervous. She said that everything would be okay.
The doctor himself was a really kind man and he made me feel so comfortable right away. I explained that I was nervous and he said not to worry because he has plenty of tricks up his sleep to make the appointment go smoothly and that I should focus on how I would feel good again after the appointment. He was right because it was over before I knew it.
I knew that I needed to incorporate social media into my business plan, but I had no idea how to do it. I have never been the type to sign up for the latest and greatest platform that is all the rage with people around me. I would rather spend my time reading an educational article online. Because of that, I was basically clueless on what to do. I went online and looked up some information on how to do this, and one of the names that came back in my search results was Alex Shelton.
I had never heard of him before, so I decided to do some independent research on him first. I liked everything that I saw about him, and I knew that he was the real deal. He has a knack for online marketing and has made a very comfortable living for himself doing just that. In fact, he has earned so much that he shares a lot of his tips and suggestions with others who are struggling like me. I had intended to just look for social marketing help, but I was hooked when I saw everything else that he was offering too.
In addition to helping me with a social media launch, he also taught other marketing factors that really make a difference. One of those things is actual content. Without having the correct content, it is impossible to get repeat customers. I thought that I did good on this aspect, but I quickly discovered that there are plenty of things that I was doing wrong. I learned a good bit from Alex Shelton, and my business is thriving in ways I never thought possible. I know how to market myself on social media now, and I have finally reached a point where I feel comfortable with my business.
