I am a big believer in an attitude of gratitude and for my very first blog I would like to show gratitude to someone without whom, I would not have my wonderful new website !!
For the past 4 years I have been trying to get my website up and running without success and had pretty much given up because everyone wanted so much money that quite frankly I didn't have.
A few months ago at Pacific Palms Markets, where I was with my Greenpaws Stall, I met a lovely man named Russell Gardner.
He asked if I had a website and I told him that was a touchy subject, anyway, after a bit of a chat he offered to help me get online.
He has a lot of experience with this and said we could use a free build it yourself site with Weebly.
It took him just a few hours to create exactly what I had been trying to achieve for years.
He listened to what I wanted and then did it, he personalised it for me and made it real.
I was also able to have an online shop which was awesome, we are still in the process of building that part of things, but it is coming !!
Russell then came down to my place and taught me how to use my new site and navigate my way around. This was a little daunting at first as I am not a computer whiz but am finding it pretty user friendly.
In the process of putting it all together, Russell was always there to answer my endless and sometimes, probably annoying questions. He was and is great at patiently explaining to me how to do this or that until it sinks into my brain and I can then do it myself.
I can't thank Russell enough for what he has done for me and am so very grateful.
He will continue to help me learn and build my site until I can fly alone but it is really nice knowing I have someone to help me out if I get stuck.
Russell is available to help anyone out there that would like to get a really ridiculously affordable online presence.
He is willing to work with you and build a 3 page site for just $99 and 5 pages for just $200 !!!
If you want something more with a shopping cart etc like my site, then it would be a bit more but still really affordable.
You can contact Russell on 02 6550 9531 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again Russell for putting me on the world wide web as now I can reach more people and help more dogs and follow my passion and purpose in life !
