It is so important to have you're own domain name and Web site. Especially if you are thinking of building a brand or e-commerce. In this episode, I am going to give you very good reasons why you need to do this and not use a third party as you're home on the Web.Show Notes:- It will always be there for as long as you keep it live.- You get to control how it looks and all other aspects of the site.- You are free to change your mind at any time and take it in another direction.- You are not relying on a service that might go paid or disappear at some point. For example, many of the social networks that now no longer exist.- You are not dependent on a third party company and their privacy rules and how they use your data.- Users know exactly where to find you.- You can use the site and domain as a jumping point to anywhere else you want to direct people.- You can use services to see metrics and learn from your users what is working and what is not. This is invaluable data.- You can gather user information via forms and/or emails and start a two way conversation.- If you decide to sell goods or services, you are free to implement that the way you want it to be.- You are not forced to display advertising or other distractions based on the desires of another company.- You get to provide the experience to visitors and potential customers exactly the way you want it to be.Support this Podcast and my other work on Patreon, I would very much appreciate it.--- Support this podcast:

Experience Like A Customer

Experience Like A Customer


You need to try and experience your content the say as your customers will, and for that you may have to do a little homework, but it will be worth it. By experiencing what you make the same way a customer does you can ensure that you are making the right choices and delivering what you expect not what you assume.--- Support this podcast:
Should We Fix Our History?

Should We Fix Our History?


It can be tempting to go back and fix those older works that just don't meet our newer higher standards, but they might just be beneficial to leave as they are. Previously not so great work by comparison to your standard today is a great way to show progression and improvement, and that my friend is a good thing.--- Support this podcast:
Note: This episode was record on the move in some really terrible weather so the quality may not be what you are used to.Over a long time now I have noticed something, the weather greatly affects my creative mood and output. When it's damp and raining it somehow pushes me to a higher level.Terrible storms in Texas today reaffirmed this for me, so I thought I would share some interesting observations.If you listen to this episode on Anchor at you can now leave messages to share your thoughts, and I really would like hear them. Let's get a conversation going and maybe I'll share your comments on the next episode!--- Support this podcast:
