I’m planning some changes to the company web-site at http://www.geometrick.com/.
Moving the Site
For one, I’m planning to move hosts. We all know it is SUPPOSED to be easy to do this but the last host I tried to move to had problems and the move had to be reverted. Still, I’m going to try, again.
I plan to make the move, tonight. So, tomorrow, if my web-site is missing, it doesn’t mean I’ve gone out of business. It just means I have more work to do either to get the move working OR to revert the web-site back.
Note: For all businesses out there who might think what I said sounds awfully casual, well, it is. While I plan to work hard, tonight, to get the web-site working, it’s not the end of the world if it’s down for a day or two. My personal opinion is that it’s better to have a web-site that is productive and works well and and have it down a day or two than to have one that doesn’t work for you but that runs 24/7.
Recreating the Site
Once the move is finished and the web-site is, once again, working, my next task is to recreate it. I want to add and change some of it and I have decided to recreate it in a different tool that will make changes more quickly accomplished.
Too often, I make a list of changes to make to my web-site and either I don’t have enough to bother to send them to my web-master to do or I just don’t have the time to make them, myself. By changing the way the site is managed, I hope to be able to make changes within 24 hours of wanting to do so.
With that said, lately, I’ve had a couple customers say to me, “I went to your web-site but wasn’t sure if you offered services doing what I need but I just thought I’d call/e-mail you.” I was thinking how many customers had the similar thought but then just went elsewhere and it’s a motivation to make sure I can be more responsive to my web-site changes that I need.
GeoMetrick Enterprises isn’t going out of business, this week, for sure (unless a meteor hits the office and maybe not even then). So, if the web-site isn’t around, don’t bother cranking up the rumor mill about it. 😉
