Setting up your small business or personal web page

In the Family Tech column that ran in the September 18, 2014 printed edition of Prince William Today, I discuss how a business, and individuals, receive the most cachet with an email address that is to their own domain.

I talked about creating your own domain, and setting up your email to be sent to that domain in another blog post today.

Once you have your own domain, a small business should definitely set up its own web page.  It doesn't have to be much.  Think of it as your business card online, where people can find it via Google or Bing search.  And it provides a simple link your satisfied customers can share with their friends via email, Facebook, Twitter etc.

Creating an Email address at your own domain

In the Family Tech column that ran in the September 18, 2014 printed edition of Prince William Today, I discuss how a business, and individuals, receive the most cachet with an email address that is to their own domain.

That is, a business is taken more seriously if its email address is Info@JoesPlumbingPWC.com than if it were Joe3272@comcast.net.

You need to do a few things to send and receive email at your own address.  You need a domain name, and an email server service.  Thankfully, both are relatively inexpensive, and easy to setup.

Family Tech: The New Phones of September

The two new iPhone's were not the only cell phones announced in September.

Read about the iPhones and the others, in the latest Family Tech.

Family Tech now appears in Washington Family Magazine too!

Starting with the September issue, Family Tech also appears in Washington Family Magazine.  You can find the magazine at these locations.

It will be a column that previously appeared in the Prince William Today newspaper, so if you have discovered Family Tech through the magazine, and want to read more Family Tech, be sure to pickup the paper each week.  You can subscribe to a digital version or have it delivered.
