Here are the usual choices for getting your business online:
- Become MacGyver and create it yourself out of string, Band-Aids, and burrito wrappers, which somehow takes much longer and involves a lot more swearing than you expected
- Buy a bland, boring “biz in a box”, put your name in the “name goes here” slot, and hope all the pre-set options will be what you need
- Pay a year’s income (from the business you haven’t started yet) for a fully-custom business system that takes 9 months to build and you’re afraid to touch
Fortunately there’s another choice. (Phew!)
We sit right at the crossroads of “do it yourself” and “high cost fully-custom” solutions. We’re friendly, supportive, and technical enough to get the job done but never enough to intimidate or confuse you.
We know your business thrives when it looks like YOU – not like what those “marketing experts” tell you, or like “leaders in your industry”, or like anyone but you. “What” you do turns out to be far less important than the fact that it’s YOU doing it, and we put that at the center.
We have no “rules” other than these:
- Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good
- Don’t buy a limo when a moped will get you there
- Your business comes alive as a living reflection of YOU
Once we know what that looks like, we help you design and set up ONLY the pieces you need, using solid and reliable tools, in a way that looks and works like YOU. Then we teach you how to operate it confidently so you’re not dependent on anyone else.
We use the simplest options that will do the job well, to get you up and running quickly on a solid framework that can grow with you. We recognize the value (and therefore the cost) of fully-custom work – but it’s probably in that “limo” category if you’re just starting out, and we’d rather build you a really awesome moped.
We can do any or all of these, depending on what you need:
- Help with finding and expressing your YOUNESS in your business
- A simple, effective website with your own domain name
- A mailing list service so you can email your people
- Reliable and professional email and phone service
- A scheduling system
- A billing and payment system (can integrate with scheduling or be standalone)
- Business cards
We set up whichever pieces you need, including helping them talk to each other and look like they all belong to you. We make sure you know which bits you need to pay attention to and how to keep it all rolling along, so you don’t waste your time and sanity learning things you don’t need to know.
Then we send you out into the world, with just what you need, so you can bring your “thing” to your people.
Yeah, we think it’s pretty awesome too.
