That sounds pretty basic, right? You would think so. But when I first started exploring the idea of helping local businesses with their online presence I talked to several small business owners. I was surprised to find out how little control many owners have over their online presence. And how much they pay for services they know little or nothing about.
For example, some pay hundreds of dollars a month to maintain a website. If they ever decide to leave that company and go with another service, they lose their website, because they don’t really own it. It’s as if they’ve rented the website all this time.
Or perhaps they pay a service to list their business in several online directories. This is an important service and can help with the online visibility of your company. But what happens to those listings if you ever stop paying the monthly fee? It seems the online business listings will cease to exist as well.
I could go on and on with examples of lack of ownership and owner confusion I discovered in just a few short months. It’s true, not all online marketing services or businesses operate that way. And it’s also true that these models probably have a place and are a fit for some companies. But, what I found most disturbing of all, are business owners that didn't even know what they were getting for their money. It’s important to ask questions up front. But what if you don’t know the questions to ask?
These findings were very motivating to me as I decided to startup my own company. I knew that there are ways to help companies improve their online presence that keeps them in the driver’s seat. There are way to improve their online presence where they retain ownership.
I also was confident that I could explain these ways in simple, easy to understand language, thus empowering business owners to make wise decisions with their online presence.
