My client was of the older non tech-savvy generation.
But she was of the older stubborn and determined generation too!
She knew she had to have a website but she could not afford one.
She learnt the jargon; domains, hosting, WordPress, GoDaddy.
She had the pieces but she had no idea how to put them together.
She turned to me to fix the mess and help her progress.
I explained in the most basic terminology.
Creating a website is just like creating a new physical business!
When you want to start a new business there are 3 basic steps you take:
- Register a business name
- Rent an office for your business
- Buy furniture so you can start working
And so I connected it to creating a website.
The 3 basic steps you take are:
- Buy a domain name for your website
- Get hosting to house your website
- Install & setup WordPress so you can start working.
She had a eureka moment.
All the pieces aligned.
We discussed next steps & she was well on her way.
Sometimes my job is not to produce a finished product but rather to enable a client to clearly see their process and give them the guidance so they can proceed & succeed.
My client bounced out of the room!
