Online EP 29, Is Direct mail still a thing? Why is underestimated but still an important tool in your marketing Arsenal - with Dennis Kelly
🎧This is Online with Amr The Internet Guy! The show focuses on entrepreneurs and business owners, helping them become more successful in conducting their business on the web without being stuck with Technology 😱, getting a headache, pulling their hairs out, or buying expensive software! My guest today is Dennis Kelly, Founder and CEO of Postalytics. We discussed computing, and software that aims to reduce friction in “performance marketing”! I personally did not think that "snail mail" campaigns were still a thing! But Dennis changed my mind and showed me why direct mail is still a very powerful business & marketing tool. Enjoy! How to get in touch with Dennis (and other links) here: https://humantalents.ca/online/29 P.S: Your website is an important tool that adds value to your business, whether you are marketing online or offline, people will always respond by visiting your website. It is very important that the site is running at its optimal performance and that it is safe and secure. Reason No.1 for hacking and malware is "un-updated plugins or themes", many business owners take it upon themselves to do those updates, only to "fall behind" or apply "automatic updates" that end up breaking their site. If you want peace of mind check our website care plans out: https://humantalents.ca/services/maintenance-and-hosting/ Or book 30 minutes for us to have a chat about having a professional maintain your website: https://meetings.hubspot.com/amr6 Cheers, Amr "The Internet Guy."

Online! EP 26 - Managing a startup & how to keep growing your business without external investment - with Silvia Martinelli Waqued
🎧This is Online with Amr The Internet Guy! The show focuses on entrepreneurs and business owners, helping them become more successful in conducting their business on the web without being stuck with Technology 😱, getting a headache, pulling their hairs out, or buying expensive software! My guest today is Silvia Martinelli-Waqued, Silvia left her homeland - Brazil and migrated to Canada with nothing but a good business experience and a big dream. After working with a bakery franchise for some time, Silvia and her husband Bruno realized that their all-time favourite Brazilian snack (Baked Cheese puffs) was not readily available in British Columbia (probably not in the whole country), so they started their Own "Otimo Brazilian Cheese Puffs" In 2016, Silvia and Bruno went to the Dragons Den and appeared in season 11 Seeking a small investment from our Canadian Dragons, and while they all loved the product and the taste they did not give any Dough! Did that stop, Silvia? Not at all! It made her more determined. Fast forward: Otimo has more flavours today and is sold in all the main supermarket chains in Canada (IGA, Save on Foods, Superstore etc.), it is also sold online from their website. (I am yet to try it) :-) Silvia and I discussed her amazing and entertaining entrepreneurship journey, her experience and of course Food! Warning! This episode could make you hungry especially for baked goods, or cheese puffs, I am not responsible for that. Enjoy!

Online! EP 23 - What storytelling can do for your business and how you can achieve great results using short videos with Mo Hedayet
🎧This is Online with Amr The Internet Guy! The show focuses on entrepreneurs and business owners, helping them become more successful in conducting their business on the web without being stuck with Technology 😱, getting a headache, pulling their hairs out, or buying expensive software! My guest for this episode is a real creative person with an eye for the perfect scene! We have met at the coworking space "The Fountainhead Network" and had a few convos about how storytelling is a great marketing tool that is "underutilized" and how many business owners are missing out on "short videos" or "Promo videos" because they have a misconception that video is expensive, or they want to fly solo. I was one of those solo fliers producing all videos on my own :-) but after recording this episode with Mo, and seeing his work, I had to jump on the bandwagon, and here's what we have done: https://youtu.be/r3B96dSh-SA (I dare you not to laugh while watching this 2-minute video!) So without further ado, let's meet Mo Hedayet from Kaifko creative. Enjoy!

Online! Episode 19 - How to get a WordPress website as a subscription service and pay monthly fees instead, With Gill Wilson
🎧This is Online with Amr The Internet Guy! The show focuses on entrepreneurs and business owners, helping them become more successful in conducting their business on the web without being stuck with Technology 😱, getting a headache, pulling their hairs out, or buying expensive software! Business owners who use platforms like Wix & Squarespace for their website do it because the barrier to entry is very low and they don't need to worry about buying hosting, installing WordPress, or buying themes & plugins, etc. They simply have all this taken care of from the beginning but the main downside to these platforms is that they have absolutely no control over the environment that houses their website, they can't add plugins and they can't do things like optimizing the loading speed of their pages plus SEO is a nightmare on these platforms, so, in short, you get the ease of use and no flexibility! When I speak with business owners who have been with Wix or Squarespace for some time, they all agree that it was the best option for them when they started up and had no budget as well as little or no knowledge of WordPress! In fact, they all thought WordPress was complicated and hard to learn (which is not true), many of them think about migrating from Wix to WordPress after the first 12 months for one reason or another and it is then when they learn that they are locked-in and can not take their website with them (especially the website design they spent so much time/effort perfecting) WordPress - in my opinion, is the best platform to use for a business website nowadays, it is powerful, flexible, and extendable, it is very lean, easy to use, and easy to learn, it is certainly not harder than the other platforms but it is way better and provides the website owner with full control from the getgo. The main issue for startups is usually the cost to get a custom website professionally designed as many would not be prepared to pay USD.$2000+ right away. If only there was a WordPress-based option with its better capabilities that worked in a similar way to the other platforms! Where you just pay a monthly fee and everything is taken care -of, for you! NOW there is! my guest today Ms./ Gill Wilson does that, she calls it the "subscription-based" website.Not only that but she also offers the professional design (Templates) as part of the deal so that you are not left alone to figure things out or end up wasting hours of your time then end up hiring someone when you are stuck. It is all done for you, listen to this episode for details on this service & business model, we also discuss small business success and how to convince your grown-up kids to work with you :-) Enjoy!

In this day and age we do everything online, I mean I can probably live for a few hours without electricity or water but I can't imagine not having access to the Internet!

We all use different devices and networks to access the Internet, and we also have important "digital real estate" properties like a website, a Facebook page etc. But how well are we protecting all of that from bad actors? Do you know when was the last time your website was backed up? Where is that backup and how you can restore it in case you need to? What about the important files on your computer or the computer itself? Are your passwords safe? Do you have a good password tool or policy?

Online! Episode 5 How to find the Best Web Designer to work with, and why Web Designers have a "Reputation"? - with Josh Hall
🌎 This is Online With Amr The Internet Guy! The show focuses on entrepreneurs and business owners to help them become more successful in conducting their business on the web without being stuck with Technology, getting a headache, pulling their hairs out, or buying expensive software! EP5 with Josh Hall, Finding the Best Web Designer to work with! In episode No.5 here I am joined by Josh Hall from JoshHall.co, who is "The Yoda of Divi", a YouTuber, Web Design Teacher & Elegant Themes Blog Author. Josh isn't only an experienced web designer and Entrepreneur but also a great coach for other web designers around the world. I had spoken to many business owners and entrepreneurs in the past few weeks who opted to design their own websites. A few had told me that they did not like working with their web designer/techie and that was what pushed them towards going the "hard way" and designing their own websites without asking for help. So I reached out to Josh to ask him "Why do web designers have a reputation?" And what "we" can do to change this perception. During the course of our interview, we realized that we needed to give business owners good advice on how to select the best web designer (the best fit for them) and what to look for in order to make this important business (and ongoing) relationship not only a success but also fun :-)  Enjoy!

🌎 This is Online With Amr The Internet Guy! The show focuses on entrepreneurs and business owners to help them become more successful in conducting their business on the web without being stuck with Technology, getting a headache, pulling their hairs out, or buying expensive software! EP4: Hey guys and welcome to Episode 4 of – online with Amr The Internet guy In this episode, I am with Robyn McTague The Master Holistic Healer from Richmond BC. Canada Initially, I approached Robyn to discuss her “online approach” as a business owner and entrepreneur. I had learned that she had a bad experience with a web design agency that had prompted her to take matters into her own hands and take back control of the process to build her business’s website. So what happens when a business owner has a bad experience with their web designer? How do you solve this issue and push through? During our conversation, I got to know more about Robyn and her unique business services. We ended up discussing motivation, energy, blocks and metaphysics! We also spoke about the 3 different iterations of her business website as well as the experience she has gone through over the past 3 or 4 years in order to finally have a good working website that she feels satisfied about. My conversation with Robyn was quite interesting, it got my brain going-on for the rest of the day, I am certain that you will learn from this conversation as much as I did, so here it is!
