Web Designing & Web Hosting Women

A few days ago I met a customer online who has a Web Designing business. Today I met another person online who has a Web Hosting and Domain Registration business. Both women! More and more women are making their own way in these fields. It is very much needed and understood, the majority of online businesses are owned and operated by women. So women helping women is a great thing! Creating an online presence can be challenging, confusing, and possibly frustrating. If you do not have the know-how or the patience to learn the ins and outs, using a professional service could benefit you.

My husband takes care of Smell Goods' template implementation, web-hosting, and domain registration. If it wasn't for his patience, I would of handed everything over to a web designer. But, I am glad we stuck it out. Over the years our website has gone from right brain overloaded (too many images/graphics), to site-builders, to sleek and e-commerce friendly. It did not come easy or overnight. He continued to learn all he could through forums and troubleshooting(ugh), he even taught himself some Flash (now that was pulling hair). I took a SEO class, learned html coding, learned how to setup modules, etc. It was hard, but looking back I would not trade what it took to gain this knowledge for nothing. And guess what? I am still learning, because there is always something new to learn when it comes to an online presence on the WWW.

So if FTP, SSL, SEO, autoresponder, domain name, web hosting, upload, modules, shopping cart, html code, css, flash, are words that make you say, "huh", contact:
