When I launched my first website (not a geocities site, but an actual website with my daveshrein.com domain) I spent hours and hours surfing the web looking for the best tools and tricks to help my site pop the way I thought it should.
Do you ever look at someone else’s website and wonder, “what is it they’re using to make that happen?” We become so focused on aesthetics and novelty functionality that often the most important part of our website goes unattended to – the actual content.
In this episode of #dactalk, Charissa Moore and I spend over an hour talking about the typical tech questions that entrepreneurs and platform builders encounter when they are constructing their ideal website as part of starting an online business.
We cover things such as typical mistakes made when working with new tech, what are the essentials a tech tool must have in order to be considered and what hardware and software we use and why.
We spend a lot of time talking about the best way to go about trying new tech offerings along with how to overcome a case of the non-techie.
If you have been held back from achieving your goals because of business technology issues, this episode will give you the encouragement and direction you need to finally make traction.
