Basic Website Builder

By Michael Helmke | October 15, 2018

If you are just starting out in your business or you only need a simple website, this is the product you want. In very many cases, the only website you need shows that your business exists, has a professional look, some straightforward messaging about what you do, and contact information. While this is called the “basic” service, you still get the great support and features you expect from the Digital Concierge.  We will sit down and talk in detail about your website needs, your audience, your message.  Your clients and customers will be able to contact you through the website and find out what it is that you do.

The Digital Concierge

By Michael Helmke | October 1, 2018

Overwhelmed Trying to Do It All? Let The Digital Concierge Help You Regain Your Balance The biggest mistake I see coaches make is trying to do everything themselves.  Helping clients, social media, updating your websites, building new courses, networking.  Doing all that yourself, something is sure to fall through the cracks. It’s rare to find anyone good at doing everything in their business. (Hint:  It’s never true.) Yet there’s always a short list of problems which, if solved, will make everything else so much easier. If this resonates with you, the Digital Concierge Service will help.  It’s focused on getting everything done that you don’t have time to complete yourself. You and I will work together to prioritize the most important items on your to-do list.  Then we will get them done in a series of collaborative work sessions. What can we do together?

Concierge Analytics

By Michael Helmke | September 13, 2018

You Know Your Business, Right? There are many ways to measure your business from tracking customer satisfaction, charting revenue, and customer service costs. You can measure time spent by people visiting your website, open rates on your MailChimp marketing emails, and engagement on your Facebook Page. Throw in Google AdWords or FaceBook Ads performance and you have a lot that you have to sift through. That is, if you are measuring things at all. It is hard to grow a business without goals and a way to measure those goals. It is equally hard not to be overwhelmed by all of the different reports from all of your different tools. Each is formatted differently, the reports often don’t align. How can you have confidence that you are reading everything right? What if there was a way to unify all of your reports so you could see at a glance what was happening in your business? …
