Over 12 years ago, I took a job on faith at a “new media company” in Cleveland, Ohio. Was this Internet stuff going to be big? I wasn’t sure. The first day on the job, they sat me down, handed me a html book and said, “learn this”. So I did. I had no Web experience (who did at that point really?).
Fast forward to 2008 (almost 2009, wow) and here I am… an experienced Web professional who’s pretty much done it all online, and been exposed to all the possibilities. Call me a “guru” if you wish, I dislike that word, but in reality, I’m a teacher.
For years I’ve written blog posts and consulted with small and large businesses about how to be successful online. And I’ve enjoyed every single minute of it. There is simply nothing more satisfying than watching someone who you’ve guided experience success, then the gratification of that person or company contacting you to tell you about how you helped them.
So today I’m proud to announce that I’ve decided to take my “Web teaching degree” and focus it into a new business called TheBizWebCoach.com.
What Is TheBizWebCoach.com?
It’s a membership site built for small businesses and brands who need a teacher or Web expert in their back pocket. Someone who can help them when needed with specific advice and guidance. Someone who they can count on to help them ensure they don’t make all the mistakes everyone makes.
You know, not every business can afford to hire a consultant like me. I get tons of calls every week from people who just want a few answers, and some minor advice… not a 10-page Web strategy. Of course, I would always just help those people free of charge, and I will continue to do so.
The point of TheBizWebCoach.com is to give a low-cost, yet high-quality, coaching or consulting option to thousands of businesses and brands who need something a bit more than free help, but not as much as a full-time consultant.
Here’s an even better way to explain it… here’s what it’s not. It’s not info products. It’s not dvd’s to order. It’s not a guidebook or step-by-step system to follow.
Instead… it’s access. Access to me. The last thing that anyone wants nowadays/anymore, in my opinion, is yet another guidebook, or dvd set, or ebook that if full of information about how to get it done. Don’t get me wrong, all of things are good, and they will help you, but in all honestly, wouldn’t you rather have access to the person who wrote them instead?
I think you do, and that’s what TheBizWebCoach.com is. So go explore and tell me what you think. Hey, you may even want to sign up! I look forward to having you.
The next post will focus on the full rebranding of Jim Kukral. Remember, this blog isn’t going away! More to come.
