Q: I really don’t ‘get it’ when it comes to all the technology and terminology involved yet I still feel enthusiastic about sharing the information and expertise I have. Is it necessary to understand all the complicated techno stuff and will I be able to succeed without it?
A: Hi Angie–
You do need some degree of technological proficiency to operate. i.e. being able to use various pieces of software, like Word, Excel, Publisher, etc. be able to send and receive email, and be able to browse and find basic information online. These are the most basic functions you’ll need to be able to communicate with clients and colleagues.
For the computer-related upgrades and repairs, you can hire a computer consultant, preferably one that will come to your home, to help you install new software, network your computers, or help you if your computer is infected with a virus.
For tasks like website updates, blog setup, shopping cart setup, pay-per-click campaigns, etc., you may want to hire an Online Business Manager or an Internet Marketing Virtual Assistant. To find one, you can simply Google those terms and see which sites come up in the search.
Later this year I’ll be launching an Online Business Manager Training Program, so you’ll be able to search for help at www.OnlineBizU.com at that point.
Bottom line — those who can afford to hire help do so. Those who can’t usually end up learning to do it themselves initially until their cash flow is sufficient enough to hire help…:)
