I am believer. You've got me. I know -- things are changing and the technologically equipped will excel. That being said I am a Baby Boomer and well, this internet thing started coming around strong in, oh, about 1990 or so. Suffice to say that I was long since out of any kind of school. Nonetheless, I was a little ahead of my generation and bought a PC and began to teach myself. I was fairly proud of how well I was able to negotiate windows 3.0 and AOL, beginners version. I was afraid, however, that somehow I would receive this huge bill from some mysterious place for being on the internet too long. Back then you got an allotment of hours from AOL's part of your basic subscription and after that you paid by the hour.
Those were the days of shareware and I managed to download everything that I could get my hands on, I mean, I had a high capacity Tandy computer with a cool 66mz of power. WHoa! People would also admire my newly purchased black and white inkjet printer that I spent almost $400 to acquire. I was big time.
Still I was painfully aware of the fact that there were so many younger than I that seemed to know so much more. Well, I have marched along. Traded up perfectly good computers for new ones and gone from Windows 3.0 to Vista and everything in between. I remember designing and uploading my first web site. It all seemed mysterious to me. Actually, it still does.
Well, now we are in the age of internet 2.0, Twitter, social media, pay per click, blogging etc. Frankly try as I may I just can't keep up with everything and I am beginning to feel like a dinosaur next to some of the younger agents that come trained with all the bells and whistles.
Now don't get me wrong. I really don't need EVERY bell and whistle, but, how do I know which ones I do need? Worse yet, once I decide, how to I know where to go to get all of them or do I just "turn it over"? I am not particularly interested in mastering every new widget and tool tht comes along and yet I don't want to pay someone else who does ridiculous prices to just "trust" that they do. What is the solution.
I think that I found one right here in the Rain; Danny Thornton and Rich Dansereau. I trust them and I just recently found out that they are very knowledgeable in all things internet especially marketing tools and they will have my vote for internet marketing dollars spent on set up etc. If you are like me and don't want to know how just why and need someone that you can trust to give you a hand call them; they're great!
