    Its Time For Us To Start Networking

    HumanArrow Adventurer

      The Small Business Online Community is great resource for many of us. In an effort to learn about each others business and begin connecting, we should start with business introductions. Briefly, tell us about your business and what you do. I will go first.

          Great idea! We might also make sure that folks know that they can click on the authors name in any response they might write to get to their profile which usually has a link to their website and other good info. I think too often folks take for granted that everyone knows how to use these forums. Never hurts to have a reminder for those who don't know things that'll help em out, yknow?

          I have added a "Ideal Prospect" bullet point so everyone knows what kind of referrals we are all looking for. We have a fantastic networking group here that insists on that to make folks think about all the people they know and might be able to refer to each other. I also added a slogan bullet point below because sometimes the about us is too long ;)


          Company Name: Your-Web-Guys

          Slogan: We build your website so you can build your business.

          Product or Service: Web Design, Scripting, SEO, & Hosting

          Coverage Area: Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex

          About Us: We take care of everything a small business needs to do to be online. From the initial design phase to regular maintenance and updates to brainstorming to figure out exactly how their website can help them make money we are absolute partners with our clients. We figure that if you help folks get what they want then they will help you get what you want. We provide three basic levels of sites with additional scripts available on any of them:

          >> Basic five page "online brochure" site
          >> Dynamic content site (controlled by a database with a script back end such as a content management system)
          >> Ecommerce site with unlimited categories, subcategories and products

          Ideal Prospect: Someone who knows they need their business online, but doesnt know much more than that. We can guide them through the process or just flat out do it all for them so they don't have to worry about it.
