I’ve started nine different businesses in the last ten years and guess what the one thing they all had in common was?
If you said that they all became unicorns and were sold for billions… then I already appreciate your optimistic thinking.
But, really the one thing they all had in common was they needed a website. And not just any website, but a website that was user friendly, portrayed a message, and looked kick ass.
Like a lot of people starting out, I was broke and looking for ways to save money. I told myself that I could save myself a few thousand dollars by building my site myself.
I kept saying, I’m a smart guy and I can figure this out. Well the end result was correct in that I did figure it out (three plus months later)… I just didn’t think it was going to take me 5 years to actually get good at it.
And I’m sure that you’ve had moments like that too.
As an entrepreneur or small business owner there are literally hundreds of different hats that you have to wear in order to be successful.
Is this really another one that you want to add to your list?
I’m Matt Schoepflin and I run One Nine Digital where we specialize in building Squarespace websites for entrepreneurs, bloggers, and small business owners in two weeks.
I’m a very process driven person and have developed a checklist and system for building awesome websites on Squarespace.
Back to my story above…
Being an entrepreneur myself, I know how hard it can be to look for help, or outsource work.
But, I’ve also learned a lot about the value of time and being able to evaluate your strengths and weaknesses.
Through all my different entrepreneurial journeys, I’ve realized that my ‘strength’ is bringing an idea to life. Taking an initial concept, whether it’s just something in your head, or scratched out on a piece of paper, and building the foundation. I know it sounds crazy, but developing a cohesive brand and voice that is consistent across all the different channels (website, branding, social media…) is what gets me excited and fired up everyday. I truly love that process.
So if you’ve been wasting time googling, “how to build a website” instead of working on growing your blog or business, then I think you’re in the right spot and we should definitely schedule a time to talk.
