So you’ve stumbled upon this site, and I am sure you are asking yourself, “Who is Al Davis, and why do I care about what he has to say?” No, no. It’s okay. It’s a fair question, for sure. But before we get to the nuts and bolts of who I am, let me clarify one point quickly:
I am not the Al Davis who owns the Oakland Raiders. Different guy…entirely.
So back to why you should read what I am writing.
For more than 15 years I have been working with small businesses, helping them get their business online–whether by selling them dual channel ISDN (that’s what we had before broadband became ubiquitous across the country) or by being a product manager for a number of internet service provider’s (ISPs) and telcos designing the packages that host your small business websites. I have travelled across the country to deliver a number of seminars aimed at demystifying the process of getting your small business online. So it’s safe to say that I know a thing or two about small business websites.
Over the course of my career, I have talked to literally thousands of customers about their internet needs, listened to their ideas about what they want to accomplish with their sites, and added my own ideas and inspirations to the mix. In these ways I have helped more than 100,000 customers have a good place for their websites to call home.
But what does all of this have to do with you? What’s the real reason you should spend some time here reading what I have to say? Simply because the entire goal of this site is to help you, the small business person, not only get your site off the ground but also make sure you are making the most of the tools available to you.
And I promise I won’t wear any velour track suits like the other Al Davis, and really that alone should be enough to keep you here….
