We Are Web Services started from an idea of wanting to work one on one with businesses and individuals in a personable and creative environment. In working in a few corporate and organizational environments I felt there was something missing in my career, and I wanted my work to be deliberate and encompassing of my passions; in tune with my education in English and Art and interest in technology. So, one day I jumped off the deep end, resigned from my position as a consultant, and committed my time and effort to work on projects I was passionate about and with clients who had similar aspirations.
My initial plan was to write articles and blog posts for online publications and client websites. I began my new venture by researching all the facets of how to find writing jobs, submit proposals, and complete such projects in their proper styles and formats suitable for their forums. It was a valuable learning experience, and one in which I learned the pros and cons of working for ones’ self, how to value my time and efforts correctly, and establish the skills and knowledge to provide valuable services to a variety of clients with different business needs and endeavors.
Progressing through that first year I completed a few projects for clients and became aware of the needs and wants of businesses and organizations in regards to their online presence. A vision was forming in my mind of how my venture could evolve. I went back to school on a DIY curriculum of content management systems, website coding, design, and search engine optimization. It was a realm I felt comfortable in and one that peaked my interests in the technological and creative aspects of website services.
During this time I also happened to meet a client who further solidified the idea of the business forming in my mind and who could benefit from it. Hal owned a custom motorcycle and fabrication shop and was looking for a provider to write blog posts for his social media pages. As he described he wasn’t much a fan of social media, but understood its role in the era of today. He wanted someone to get to know his business, interpret his projects’ photos and descriptions, and along with managing his website, produce weekly blog posts for his social media accounts. He’d looked into a few services that provided these elements but felt they all lacked a personable aspect and did not provide enough value for his money. And that’s when a light bulb went off in my head. There was a need for reliable and affordable website services, that were personable and invested in their client’s work, and it was a need I could fulfill successfully.
Over the next couple of years while providing freelance website services and building my own product and services platform, I acquired a foundation of knowledge and skills on server management, website hosting, domain registration, email services, security certificates, and database back-up solutions. These became the components of what is now We Are Web Services, a full-service website hosting and design provider that is dedicated to helping businesses and individuals find success online with affordable, personable and genuine services. It’s been a journey, and not one without a few twists and turns, but it’s a pleasure to know the hard work and dedication has paid off in a valuable asset for businesses and organizations wanting to find success online and work with a partner invested in helping them achieve their goals. So, whether you’re starting your first personal blog, building a community forum, or kick starting a new business venture, find a home for your website at We Are Web Services, and never feel like just another customer.
