Hello, I’m Eric Graudins – “The Internet Bloke”.
I can help you make good decisions about your website and online business.
You might be just thinking about using the internet for your business, and are not sure what you need to do.
Or already have a website or online shop, and need advice on updating or extending it.
Maybe you are tearing your hair out because something has gone wrong, and you don’t know how to fix it.
I can help you.
I’ve been providing services, advice, and assistance to small business owners for over 10 years, and have encountered and dealt with pretty well every internet issue that you’re likely to encounter.
In many cases, I’ve been able to save them hundreds or even thousands of dollars in the course of a short phone or email discussion.
Unlike equipment and software vendors, I have no vested interest in selling you the latest and greatest thing that’s available, regardless of whether it is appropriate for your situation. My only interest is to use my skills and knowledge to help you get the results you want from using the internet to achieve your business goals.
For many of my clients, I have become their trusted advisor with whom they can confidentially discuss the requirements of their businesses. I can provide you with ongoing advice tailored for your situation, and help you co-ordinate and manage the various suppliers with whom you choose to work.
I Can Help You With:
1. – Information to Help You Make Good Decisions.
If you’re like most business owners, you don’t have a clue about what’s involved with setting up your online business – and you don’t want to get involved with all the geeky, technical stuff anyway.
However, you REALLY need to be aware of how your online business works, and how everything is put together.
Otherwise you can easily lose control of what is going on, and suffer severe loss if something goes wrong.
2. Personalised Assistance
I can provide you with reports about your current activities, and suggestions for what you want to do in future.
I can work with you on an ongoing basis, and guide your progress towards the things you want to achieve.
A Bit More About What I Do.
If you’re like most business owners, you don’t have a clue how their website or online business works because they think its too technical, and too complicated.
They farm everything off to a website developer and often give them full authority to do anything they like. This can result in high expenses, poor results, and a total loss of control of your online business because you can be literally “held to ransom” by your web developer.
It doesn’t have to be like that, when you take control of the development of your website.
Your website is a “jigsaw puzzle” containing many pieces. One of which is the website files created by your developer.
YOU should have knowledge and control of all the pieces, and how they are connected together.
If you don’t know how everything works and don’t have access to all the pieces, then you are not in control of your online business.
Even worse, your website might not even belong to you if your developer has not registered it properly in your name. (This would be like buying a house, but the title was in the name of the estate agent)
I’ve been helping business owners with their internet needs for over ten years. I’ve seen all the tricks, and solved pretty well all of the problems that business owners encounter in setting up their online businesses.
No matter what you want to do, there are usually a wide range of methods and techniques to do it. Ranging from free to very expensive.
- Sometimes it makes sense to use free or cheap options.
- Sometimes it’s a big mistake.
- The most expensive is often not the best answer.
- The most popular solution may not be the best one for you.
I can help you choose wisely.
If you need some personal advice for your business, we can work together by phone, email, or in person to look at the opportunities and options available to you and your business.
Please contact me at Eric@TheInternetBloke.com and we can arrange a time to have a free, no obligation discussion where you can tell me about your situation, and to see how I can assist you.
(Note – To avoid a conflict of interest, I don’t generally create websites any more. (except for existing clients). However, I am able to refer you to competent associates who will create what you need – and not try to sell you the most expensive site that they can.
