Well now that the company name has been chosen, the domain has been bought, a rough logo has been created, a new company website is soon to follow. . .but for now I thought I’d outline, in a bit more detail what Newcomb’s newco is really about.
NEED A BASIC WEBSITE?
Basically my core training product will be one-to-one WordPress in a Day – in Glasgow and the West.
I take someone who has absolutely no website experience (at all) and hold their hand as I walk them through setting up WP, adding pages, posts, and pictures too.
For me, the key is to empower all of my clients to go away at the end of the day with a site they can feel confident in managing themselves. A client may still want to pay someone else to do it, but at least they won’t be held hostage to their site – unable to make even the most simple of changes to pictures and text. [If I had a dollar for every time I heard a horror story from a website owner who was, effectively, held to ransom by their web design company – I would be a millionaire today!]
Also on the day, I’ll be teaching basic Search Engine Optimization (SEO) essentials required to be found on the Internet (read: Google). Well talk about a few of the simple steps that factor into search rankings – on page of and off page optimization (basically the things you can do to get higher up in the likes of Google). Don’t worry I won’t make it too techie!
Finally, the last part of the course will be spent covering some “best practices” of whatever social media channels would best suit the individual client. Some clients may want to be on a few different channels – while others may feel that one platform is enough. So this part of the training will be totally bespoke to each, individual client.
The channels I can help (correctly) set up and train on are: Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Pinterest*. (You can find me on all of the above – see my social media icons to connect with me).
Note: Incidentally, I would advise customers start with one or two and do them really well – rather than be on all of them in less effective way.
I look forward to meeting and possibly training some of you soon!
PS: The company name will be unveiled when the logo has been signed off – watch this space! 🙂
