So, it’s about a quarter after midnight and I’m working on the web page for my business. I’ve had this name reserved for two years and haven’t done diddly-squat with it because (a) I don’t know a darned thing about building web pages and (b) I’m the worst procrastinator there ever was. (Well, maybe not the worst, but I’m probably up there on the list . . .) Anyway, I had to renew my SBC Yellow Pages ad a few days ago and there’s nothing like telling them to list your web page address in your ad copy to motivate you to do something with the web page. Ha!
So I’ve been working on it so it will be half-way respectable when the new book comes out in November. One of my competitors listed a web address in their ad a couple of years ago and I thought I’d check it out to see “what the competition was doing.” Well, everytime I tried to check it out, it had one of those “Under Construction” labels up. Yuck! So I’m determined to have this in pretty good shape by November 15th. It’s very basic, and meant for information only — no internet orders, please! I can barely keep up with the appointments I have. Check it out if you’d like: The Finishing Touch Keep in mind, I’m still working on it. I’ll probably have to upgrade a notch, as I don’t really have a “home” page. I wanted a page for each of the three products we focus on: blinds, shades, and shutters. The basic package only contains three pages. So I’ll probably upgrade in order to get one more page (the “Home” page) that focuses on The Finishing Touch — who we are, what our customer service philosophy is, how committed we are to high quality products and customer satisfaction.
All it takes is $$$$$!
I’d love to hear what you think, so far. And if you notice any typos, please, please, please tell me. I hate typos, but sometimes they even slip past me (anal-retentive, former legal secretary with a perfectionist streak) . . .
Later, mis amigos . . .
P.S. — That reminds me – my girl has been taking a mini-Spanish class these last few weeks. We went for lunch after church today, to our favorite little Mexican restaurant. Well, Missy just loves sopapillas and so when the waitress came around to see if we wanted anything else, my girl said perfectly “Yo quiero sopapillas, por favor.”
Heavens, I just love that child!
