A few years back I wrote a post about a friend who was totally duped by their web designer. I’ve always been a big believer in having control of your online business and practice it religiously with my own clients, but many business that are new to the online world tend to put all of their trust in their designer because they don’t understand the process, maybe feel they don’t have time to learn it or better yet, don’t care to know the details.
That is a HUGE mistake! Just like every other part of your business from inventory to finances, your online business should be something you watch and have complete control over.
As I was writing my new series, “10 Steps to Getting Your Business Online”, it hit me that I need to re-post this article on my new site so hopefully anyone looking to get online will “beware” prior to actually taking action.
