Anders is an Army veteran who decided to pursue his dream of being self-employed in the middle of a pandemic (best time ever, right?). He joined forces with his best friend and chose to start a business that serves his local community in San Diego county by removing junk and trash from local residents and commercial properties.
Sparrow suggested the DIY Launch kit, where we do all of the technical work in building a healthy site, and you do the work to build your vision into a website with the assistance of our training library.
Anders heard about Sparrow Websites through the Sweaty Startup podcast and heard about a DIY Launch Kit option where he could design and build a website and still have all the experts guiding and counseling him along the way. Sparrow would take charge by:
Anders knew he wasn’t knowledgeable enough to do all of these things himself, and he didn’t want to just pick some random template online because of the risk that his business might suffer if it wasn’t effectively converting people into leads pointing them to his website. So, he decided to pursue his options by scheduling a meeting with Sparrow Websites.
Sparrow first talked with Anders and outlined the differences between the Basic Launch Kit and the DIY Launch Kit so he could decide what kind of role he wanted to play in building it. Anders, like most entrepreneurs, is a true “do-it-yourself-er” and wants to understand the process as well as deliver a great product. He wanted to be able to edit, update, and continue to build out his website easily on his own.
This allowed Anders to use his own words and images while putting in the work to build a unique and personal website.
After the phone call, Sparrow:
So within one day, Anders’ domain was live and secure with a COMING SOON landing page to legitimize his business to his potential clients and also started the Google My Business verification process which Sparrow followed through to the end.
Even though Anders didn’t have a logo when he started this process (which isn’t necessary with a DIY kit… it’s easily added later) or even all of his services planned and written out, he was able to select a template for his website and learned how to install the template, customize the text and images for his services and even how to add the pages to his website when he was ready all from watching Sparrow’s tutorial videos.
Sparrow recieved an email from Anders telling us how his investment of around 50 hours spent playing around on the website and watching Sparrow’s Digital Bootcamp videos got him a nearly finished website.
Sparrow’s training library made it easy for Anders to:
Sparrow took a final peek to make sure everything looked great on computer, tablet and mobile views. We made sure:
Anders has joined us for our weekly strategy sessions (to which all launch kit customers have access) and even finalized a logo which he designed online and has updated his website. He started working through our 10-week Digital Marketing Bootcamp which has taught him how to optimize his business listings across the web and, more importantly, begin to actively grow his review profile online.
He is happily fulfilling his dream of starting his own business and building relationships by serving his community.
