WinCorp Software, Inc.
About this pro
You know the saying: "If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail?" That describes most of my competition, who typically specialize in just a single area: SEO, website design, etc. Instead, my goal at WinCorp is to understand your goals first, then use the tools available to achieve those goals. For example, no one actually wants "a website", what they want is the benefit they will achieve by having a website. Once I've understood what your goals are, I'll then lay out the pieces you'll need to achieve those goals, and manage the people and experts that will build the systems that will achieve results for both the short & long term. I love the creative aspects of helping people who have a great business idea that they've already started or wish to start, and bringing that vision to reality.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?At the speed of Internet evolution, how can you not? I spend at least 6-12 hours per week staying up on the latest developments in Internet marketing, design, usability, security, tools, hosting, and more.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?When I first started building websites in 1993, things were so simple. There was no Google, Amazon, or Facebook. My how things have changed! Designing, building, hosting and operating a website has become way more complicated. It's become very difficult for a "Web Design" company to be able to handle all aspects of what is needed to create an effective online presence, so many companies will do their best to hide their weaknesses. They might design beautiful-looking websites, but only pay lip-service when it comes to SEO, resulting in a shining diamond sitting in the middle of a desert. Or, they might be SEO experts, but the usability of the site sucks. They get tons of traffic to your website, but conversion into paying clients is weak. Or they don't help with hosting, or know how to keep hackers out of your site, or even have effective copywriters on staff... Make sure you are thorough when interviewing providers and don't settle for simple "Oh yeah, we do that!" answers.
