As a follow up to an earlier post about getting more website design clients, we apparently have two new clients on board.
One is a manufacturer of conveyor belt machinery, who needs a more contemporary looking website. His existing site is full of incomplete pages and missing pages. The other is a new beauty spa for botox and other injectibles. They don’t actually need a new website, they need help setting up their social media on Google+, in particular, Google+ Communities.
Sash has worked really hard to earn the trust of these clients, and now the ball is in my court to make good on the delivery.
Meanwhile, she continues to market like a maniac. She met with a potential client yesterday who already has a website being built for her, but wanted to learn more blogging and other ways to market her business online. Today, we’re meeting with an existing client who wants to hire us for another new project he’s working on.
The “12 Marketing Mistakes You’re Making” workshop that Sash did last week apparently did wonders to convince a number of attendees that she and I really do know what we’re talking about, and now they’re coming forward to inquire about our services. That only encourages us to plan another workshop.
In other news, it’s been a few weeks since Google deactivated my account, and since then I’ve been continuing with my backup account. I’ve made a solid attempt to get by using Outlook.com as my e-mail client, but it really sucks. It seems rather unreliable in pulling in e-mail from my corporate domain (cleardigitalmedia.com), and now I’ve gone back to using Gmail.
I’ve also gone back to using Google Chrome as my primary web browser after trying hard to use Internet Explorer, but I found that IE is rather slow, and it tends freeze up for a few seconds after loading in a new page.
But I’m still determined not to use Google Drive for storage anymore. I’m still using my external hard drive.
