The other day someone asked me if I could maintain their website. While as much as I would love the money the biggest problem is that my skill sets are more towards python, Linux and Mac Repairs. While yes I do have the skills needed to do the job I would not feel comfortable about charging for that service.
Time to focus on Mac repairs and Training
One of the best things that my mentor in business taught me is “It is better to call your shots”. I think that it is more important to focus on that aspect of the business vs trying to be everything for everyone. If I attempted to host websites or do web design I would not have the time to do Mac repairs. So at this point, I need to say ” I do not offer web hosting”
Who is the best for web hosting or web design in Lithgow?
I would say that https://www.digitalpacific.com.au/ is the best service so far. We just move our hosting over to them and have been very happy with the service. However to be clear this is just the hosting. (Also this is not a paid ad … we just like the service)
As for web design. If you do not have the time to learn how to use WordPress I would recommend companies like easyflowwebdesign. While I have not used the service I have talked to a few of his customers and they have been very happy.
So why am I writing this?
One of the problems of being a computer geek is that the moment you repair someone’s Mac or iPhone they assume that you can do almost anything that is tech-related. While I do enjoy working on my own blog and website (Even enjoy the technical aspects of working on the backend) I do not like working on the other aspects from a business aspect. So I do not offer web hosting.
The problem is that many people want you to set up the blog and write it for them. They want you to create the content. This is not a conversation that I enjoy having …over and over again. Just because I can set up a blog for you does not mean that I know anything about your business. I’m not a copywriter and should not be writing for anyone but myself.
I will teach you how to blog
While I will not write the content for you. I will tell you how to write the content so the search engines will be happy.
We do offer classes on how to blog and how to make working on a website easy for you.
