If you have multiple parts of your business (wholesale, retail, and online), it makes sense to have multiple websites to serve each of your different audiences. I have this podcast site, one for my books (NotAboutU.com), one for my speaking business (BrianBasilico.com), one for my LinkedIn Consulting (LI4Sales.com), and others. Building each website is done…
During this time of crisis, you are either identified as a an essential or non-essential business. But you have an essential part of your business and that is your website.

Is your business messaging ready for 2019? Has your business changed over the last year? Do they reflect current business trends? There is no time like now to start verbalizing what you want to promote in the upcoming year. The time between Thanksgiving and New Years has a tendency to be slower than spring or fall. It’s…
I believe that one of the fundamentals of running a business is creating and managing your own website. If you use a free service like Squarespace, Wix, and others, you may have a website, but you don’t have an asset. An asset is something you OWN and you can move to a new location and repurpose at will. Free and closed-loop systems, like those mentioned above, have one goal and that is to keep you locked into their platform. And if you want to add functions chances are you will have to pay.
I have had some experience with website development, and hosting (over 20 years since I made my first one), and all I can tell you is that things change, and change is happening at an accelerated pace today!
Here are the 5 core things I want you to think about when creating web assets and owning them…
Today is Labor Day and I am laboring over the podcast to keep you informed and in the loop. Most entrepreneurs or solopreneurs work more hours than your typical 9-5 worker, but there are additional payoffs afforded those who control their own time.
If you are like most, you are trading hours for dollars, and that’s OK. The more time you can save the more money you can make. So does it make sense to pay a little bit to save a bunch of time? If you can spend $100 a year to save 1 hour per month that you could bill $100 for… you would be $1100 ahead of the game by the end of the year!
In this episode, I will discuss the products and tools that I use to increase my productivity and help me efficiently make more money…

Web Hosting is something that you never really think about when it’s working, and obsess about when it’s not. It’s the lifeblood of your website and your information being found and viewed on the web and in search engines like Google.
I often talk about creating content assets and not trying to run a business on FREE platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and so on. Then why would you want to run a business on a FREE web hosting service? Free means you don’t own it and you can be shut down at any time for any reason, and there is NOTHING you can do about it!
