Avoid the common pitfalls when it comes to getting your own web site.
An introduction to Taking Aim Marketing and an explanation of how and why we build web sites the way we do.
Over the past 8 (or more) years, we have tried just about everything on the web to make a web site work for our business. We started by building our own web site (using one of those very simple, online editors). When we hit the wall on that adventure, and realized that our site was never going to do what we wanted it to do – or be found by anyone including search engines – we had to find a better way.
After years of searching, perfecting, and much trial and error – we have finally found a program that does all of these things.
The webinar recording above was presented to The Inspiration and Encouragement Network on April, 21, 2010.
It may help you understand some of the trials you will be up against as you start your quest to Build Your Own Web Site.
