The End of the Ball Game

Hello All!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday! I know that I did! I loaded up on chocolate and to much food like usual.

SO let me get back to my story about the “Ball Game” from my previous post.

After that lovely meeting I drove my hour to get home and reflected the whole way. What could I have done different? Did I sound dumb? I decided to step up to the mound again and get ready for another pitch … I wrote her a thank you email later that day explaining how awesome it was to meet her and gain knowledge about her and her business. I was genuine in the email and tried to cover up my all the “balls” I threw during the meeting. Of course like any smart person I tracked the email using Sidekick so I would know exactly how , when , and where she opened it. Yes this is stalker status but I am a type A kind of person.  Continue reading “The End of the Ball Game”

The Ball Game

Some days we win  in the marketing world and some times are “strike out” in the marketing world…

I ended up meeting a potential client today at a local coffee shop for a action plan meeting. Before I continue let me explain a few things about this meeting..

#1- This meeting was at 9 am .. bad timing

#2- It was an HOUR away from my house

#3- I was nervous

I always think about pitching new clients like a baseball game.. and I need to be the pitcher closing in for the strikes.The client was very nice and laid back, which helped me relax a little bit while going in for my first pitch. Continue reading “The Ball Game”

Website Designing

Well hello everyone! I hope everyone is awesome a great Friday and recovering well from St Patrick’s day yesterday! My fun filled Friday consists of work and a pest control company coming to help me get rid of my stupid sugar ant problem! Yuck!! Anyways.. here is my little helpful website info for today.

Everyone seems to think that to design a website you need to have some kind of expert skill set. That could not be more incorrect!! I used to be one of those people that thought those thoughts, until I started doing some research online.

There are so many different platforms that you can design websites on nowadays: Weebly, GoDaddy, Wix, WordPress ( just to name a few). Some of them are defiantly easier then others in terms of designing.. Weebly would be my first choice when it comes to easy and understandable website design. My 76 year old grandmother could build a website if she wanted because it is that easy!!

I would do your research and find the best platform that seems to suit your needs. Important key things you should look for are price ( how much is the site going to cost a month? ) , theme options-looks are super important!! , and just your overall comfort honestly. Look at youtube videos ( I attached one below ) to see how each site runs its process and if it seems like something you understand.. then go for it! You should not be banging your head against the wall while trying to build your site.

Once you pick your platform I would be take a day and just literally mess around with the building tools. Don’t rush into trying to get your site going if your a novice.. take some time and play with a heading, add some text boxes, put a picture in. By doing all of these things ahead of time and without a purpose in place it will take the pressure off you while you learn to navigate the building process. It took me a good day to get “comfortable” within the site, by the end of that day I felt confident enough that I could sit down and build my new site the way I wanted and not want to throw my computer out the window with in 10 minutes :)

**Don’t forget to take advantage of all the support and help each different site offers! Live CHAT boxes are amazing!

If you have any questions about website design platforms PLEASE shoot me an email 

See you on the next post!
