Earlier today, I was checking the statistics for my website – and they make interesting reading!
What I want to do, more than anything else, is to inspire people – to encourage you to do what you love, make a profit doing it, and to create an inspired life. What I’ve found, though, is that the pages that have had most “hits” (visits) are ones where I’ve given web tech tips.
Topics such as “how to back up your Facebook fan page”, “how to protect download pages in WordPress” and “should you have multiple websites”.
What’s going on, people?!!
Perhaps, in the tradition of “find out what they want, and then give them what they need”, I should start writing inspirational articles that include web tech tips! 🙂
In the example of “how to back up your Facebook fan page”, I could cover the tecchie stuff, and then go into why it’s important to connect with your Facebook fans, rather than simply trying to get as many people following you as possible. But even that is still about marketing – it’s not particularly inspirational.
Or is it?
Web Tech Tips?
Ever since I started my business, I’ve had this love/hate relationship with my tecchie side! Having worked in corporate IT (software development / business analysis / implementation / project management) for 18 years, I felt I had “done my time”, so to speak, and I wanted to have a change.
But I keep being drawn back to web design, SEO, and other web tech stuff, because:
a) they are things I know quite a lot about
b) people have a need for web tech tips and other tecchie stuff
c) I can de-mystify the technology and make it sound like plain English
d) I know how to speak to business owners AND tecchies in their own language!
So what’s the problem? Why not simply give people what they want?
So – I’m asking the question – WHAT DO YOU WANT, dear reader?
Would you like to be inspired? Would you like to read stories about inspiring people who have done interesting things? Or would you like to know how to get a better search engine ranking – in plain English?
Is it OK to have web tech tips and inspirational articles together on the same website? Or is it incongruous? Downright confusing, even?
