Hi, I'm Sylvia!
Providing Web and Internet strategies since 1995, I am an independent consultant and advisor in the online space.
I help business owners and entrepreneurs achieve online goals faster and with less expense through targeted one-time or regularly-scheduled consulting sessions.
I'm also President of Pondside Digital Media, Inc.
How may I help you?
- Are you an entrepreneur that's just starting out and don't know how to start?
- Have you been spending valuable time working on your own (website, content, blog, social media, newsletter, online course, etc.) and you're so done with trying to go-it alone? I don't even need to tell you your valuable time could be better spent doing other things!
- Maybe you're well on your way with a successful business and now you need to brainstorm how you can harvest more opportunities online!
When you are a business owner you wear many hats! It can be overwhelming and sometimes you just need guidance from someone who's been there before.
I have a vast and varied knowledge harvested through over 20+ years experience running my own businesses, hiring and managing employees, and being coached both in-person and online. ...and I love innovation!
I would love to help you benefit from all my accumulated knowledge and experience!
Regarding Online Strategy
Do you wonder where to start with getting your business online?
- Do you wonder if you need a domain name? ...domain email address? ...website?
- Ever wonder if having a Facebook page might be good enough?
- Are you mystified with the web development process, SEO, email, DNS, network support, ...technology in general?
- Do you find yourself wondering if you should be using WordPress ...or some other platform?
- ...and then there's the content creation!
- Do you have a website but need a review? ...wondering how you could make it better?
So much to know, so much to do! ...and, oh yeah, what about social media?
Is social media marketing still a mystery to you?
Maybe you need help understanding, setting up, or making use of the best Social Media platform for your business. ...and would that be Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Periscope, Pinterest, Snapchat, Twitter, or YouTube?
Hire me to:
- Help you develop the best online strategy to give you a leg up and save you time and money!
- Help you find the best people and resources to tackle your online project
- Give you a recipe for the development of your website that you can use on your own or hand to a web developer of your choice
- Be the project manager for the development of your website
- Help you find the best DIY platform so you can do this yourself
- Review your current website and offer valuable suggestions for improvement
- Help you understand how online choices you make will affect your website's SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
- Brainstorm better ways to help you attract and retain customers
I offer several other services and these will become apparent as we work together.
Here's a Little Information About Me :-)
As a business owner I've been setting up customers, from a variety of different industries, with website design and development, SEO, and all that goes into establishing a successful online presence ...since 1995 when the Internet was in its infancy!
I've also had 40+ years involvement with equines through ownership and for many years as an instructor teaching riding. My passion for equines drove me to develop one of the first online equine magazines, and this led to another 20 years involvement in equine media. Since 2007 I have worked with a co-host to create, produce, edit, and publish the Equinely-Inclined! audio podcast, available on iTunes.
Does your passion, like mine, focus on the equine? With a long history of things equine, I have a special understanding and insight that many online consultants lack.
Online and equine; with years of experience in these fields, I can help you with either or I can help you with both! Horses and technology, unbelievably, my life!
Harness my 20+ years of knowledge and experience to race ahead of your competition!
You can hire me by the hour or the month or choose any one of my packages that follow. All services are paid in advance.
The free Virtual Coffee is an opportunity for you to get to know me and for me to learn more about you.
Please note: Plan ahead! I am unable to meet from February 14th to February 18th, inclusive. Thank you for your understanding :-) Regardless of what you're trying to get started on or when, we should not put off meeting as time has a way of flying by with no productive efforts taking place! Please note that I will also be away during March; the dates are yet to be determined. I look forward to meeting with you to help you with your venture!
