Support for This Show

Think about this. Back in the early 2000s, a lot of creative business owners started using Myspace to showcase their work and also grow their businesses. Jim, was one of them.

But in just a few years, Facebook arrived and a lot of these businesses, including Jim, found themselves in a deserted place, and had to literally start from scratch. Jim lost all his leads, customer contacts and everything else he had going on, inside Myspace. This is bound to happen when you rent a place…like a social media platform, to grow your business and brand.

Here’s something I want you to consider. Take full control of your business and your brand. Bring your customers and leads to your own website. And you can do it all by yourself, without having to spend thousands of dollars on a web agency.
