WELCOME TO THE BOOK
This little book is meant to serve two purposes:
First, it is a field guide to help increase your knowledge of how websites work within the larger web, and help you succeed with effective techniques to market your business online. Do you really know how your website fits into the big picture of Google and Social Media? To have your website succeed you don’t necessarily need to know the technical details, but it is definitely beneficial to understand how everything ties together.
To help you market your website online, this book also has a series of articles on how to use Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and other social media platforms to promote your website. For the most part these services are free, and don’t take much time to use.
Second, this is a directory of our customers, almost all of whom are located in the Pioneer Valley. This is the fourth edition of this book, and we printed 700 copies, all of which will be distributed to members of the Franklin County Chamber, new customers as we meet them during the course of the year, and other associates.
New this year: Customer Directory Categories, listed on the very last page of this book for your convenience.
Why a printed physical book from a web-based company? I believe in providing as much value-add as possible to all my customers. There are many options for website hosting out there, but none of those hosting companies will work as hard to help promote your business. We always refer our customers when someone we know is looking for a service, and this book is just another way to do that.
Donna and I got married in July. She works for MWW two days a week now as the business manager, taking over the billing and contracting, which is a blessing.
In August, 2018, we moved into new offices in downtown Greenfield. We are now in the NESEA building at 50 Miles Street. Stop on by!
We also hired a full time production assistant, Joey Lawson. He’s lightning fast, and learning a lot. This allows me to focus on the software and customer service.
We have expanded into the real estate market with a new MLS Module for RocketFusion. Simply enter in your AgentID and your website will begin updating all your listings, automatically, optimized for search engines.
Also, our Open Government Module has expanded to include an RFP Procurement Module. This allows Towns to post their projects and receive info from vendors. We’re now hosting nine official town websites, and many department sites, too! Look to TownWebsites.com soon!
Lastly, by the time you read this, we will have upgraded all our RocketFusion websites to Bootstrap 4, which will improve the administrative and module content interfaces.
Business is growing at Montague WebWorks, and as we grow, we will continue to do our very best to provide superior service in the creation and hosting of your website. We will also continue to cross-promote your business through the leverage of our growing network of customers and involvement in the community at large.
We’re all in this together, after all.
