  • Kickstart  ​Search Engine Optimization 

Answers to this selection of 200 questions help startups craft mission, vision and value statements, business plans and executive summaries, write tag lines and even carve out cornerstones, such as naming an entity, its products, services or web domain. Stakeholders delve through strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT), extracting and shaping concepts that provide perspective of the future.

Both nonprofits and companies benefit from an exercise to explore their essence. It isn’t necessary to answer all the questions. Supporters, investors, partners, employees all have many questions of your organization. Fund-seekers must perform thorough soul-searching to present a concrete case with confidence. For all concerned, the deeper the dive, the more beneficial the process. Skip over those that don’t apply or can’t answer yet. Nonprofits should swap the word customer with donor.

This in-depth process also kickstarts keyword research necessary for search engine optimization of web site pages. Subsequently, this homework is useful for all further sales and marketing materials.

Website Hosting: 3 Ways JAGmedia Can Help You

Website Hosting: 3 Ways JAGmedia Can Help You

• Website Hosting is only Juicy when this Happens

•  What Flavor of Website Hosting is for you?

JAGmedia Web Hosting Promo Code

Website Hosting is not as sexy or eye-opening as the Grammys were a few nights ago. But it sure gets juicy when you hear about the high-profile company’s website going down – then no one can see it. While the Grammys reside on a specialized stage and location, websites have to reside on a specialized computer server setup, which is where website hosting comes into play.

During the 25 years that I have created websites I have seen it all when it comes to web hosting! I’ve rescued clients when they forgot to renew their domain name, their website files got wiped out and from web hosting tech support where the support person was just plain out of it. I’m here to tell you there is an easier way and this is how I help people. 

I’ve been hosting websites for over 10 years and it’s really satisfying to know that I can help my clients by setting them up the right flavor of web hosting that works best for their website, purchasing domain names (website address ex. https://jagmedia.net/ ) consulting and more. The  website hosting I offer is set up for making a purchase 24/7, whether or not I design their website for a client.

JAGmedia clients prefer the option of consulting with me to find out what the optimal setup is for their unique business.

That way, I will advise and set up an account for my client with the most strategic solution that works for their business. without extra fluff!  When you’re a client of JAGmedia, you have your own account  with 24/7 access, plus 24/7 tech support based in the US.  It’s important to me that my clients needs taken care of when they need it.

Additionally, clients have confidence in knowing that I’m an Authorized Reseller for the largest hosting company in the world.

These are three ways I can help you:

1- Setup Your Free Account & Shop the JAGmedia website hosting product line. Place Your Order 24/7  https://shop.jagmedia.net

Vision Board Workshops – Create Your  Powerful Vision for Your New Year

Vision Board Workshops – Create Your Powerful Vision for Your New Year

Start making your dreams a reality! Crafting Your Vision Board is a creative way to paint the broad brush strokes of your upcoming year. Vision Board Workshops Start Tuesday, December 8 at 11am, a live online experience, led by Janet Gervers, Owner of JAGmedia Design Studio.

You’re invited to join the party to get your New Year started powerfully and positively!

You know how this year didn’t happen the way  most of us thought it would?  Looking back at my  two  vision boards, I see that some of my goals were reached, while others are still in process. I’ll share a big one with you in a moment. But first, crafting a Vision Board is a creative way to paint the broad brush strokes of your upcoming year.

Speaking of brush strokes, it leads to one of my  goals – ART – for my art career to flourish, something I’ve been working on steadily since 2014. Both of my vision boards have art integrated in it, a photo of an artist’s studio in one and an artist’s palette in the other vision board.

What happened was that I was INVITED to exhibit in the LOS ANGELES ART SHOW 2020, which is – WOW, a huge honor. I had 3 of my paintings in the BG Gallery booth; that’s a gallery in Santa Monica, where my art was selected by a jury to be in a show the previous year.

The LA Art Show (the short name for it) was a dream come true for me! Previously, it was one of those things that seemed like it was in the distant, I mean way distant future. Then it happened unexpectedly around this time last year that  I received the invite. I had to create completely new paintings for the show on round canvases, which is not a typical thing or easy to find.  I  bought the canvases in mid-January, got painting and took it to the gallery before the end of the month. The show was in February at the LA Convention Center and it was one live event that did happen this year and I’m grateful to have been part of it.

What I can tell you about crafting your vision board is that it is an ongoing process, that jump starts the brain into  big picture dreams and goals– yes, I said it, the G word goals, your goals and sets it all in motion. It’s establishing your vision with clarity and  helps you to startyour deeper dive into getting more specific with your goals!

If you are ready to explore the possibilities and start crafting your vision for the new year, I’m here to guide you along the way! The first workshop is Tuesday, December 8, 2020 from 11am-12:30 pm, Pacific Time.

Web Hosting Woes Alleviated

Web Hosting Woes Alleviated

When it comes to web hosting, most people get confused really easily, since  there’s so many different flavors of it and different products these days. That, along with companies that upsell things that you don’t need,  those that outsource to foreign countries and companies that are just plain unreliable and/or unresponsive.

 

That’s where I come  in, I’m Janet Gervers, Founder of Jagmedia and your web hosting guide. I have years of experience  with web hosting and know the right combination of website hosting ingredients based on your needs, without the extra fluff (no upsells)  or products that you don’t need. My website hosting shop is located in the link bar at the top of the page, where you can set up your own account and order products if you know what you need. Another option is setting up a call with me personally. I will find out what your needs are and I will set up the account for you and put all the items you need together.  I will set up things like your web hosting and connecting your domain name; that’s your www to your web hosting account.

For a Complimentary Consultation where we can discuss your web related needs, simply use the form below to schedule a call.

I will make sure that you have the critical elements that are needed with your website hosting setup  that matches your website platform in an optimal way, along with SSL which shows our website visitors that your site is secure;  otherwise your visitors may be directed away by the browser they’re using (there will be a warning that shows that your site isn’t secure).

In addition, my web hosting  boasts 24/7 technical support in the United States.  You have total access to your account and anytime you have a question you can call my  toll free number and get answers to your questions or even order additional products that you need over the phone with my technical support team members.

How can I offer this? I’m an Authorized Reseller of the biggest website hosting company in the world – that happens to be GoDaddy. I’ve used them as a customer for 15 years and as a Reseller I will guide my clients to the products that they need, set up their accounts and even give my own discounts. I have one for you too when you spend $100 or more you get 10% off your purchase.  There is a special promotional code which I’ll give to you at the bottom of this article, that you can use during the checkout process.

If you’re wondering what might cost $100 when it comes to web hosting, here’s a few ideas: while  web hosting is available on a month-by-month basis, buying it for a year is a better way to go, plus you’ll  also need an SSL certificate, in addition there is a service that will implement it for you since that is a more complicated thing to do and buying your domain name – that’s your www, for instance, www.jagmedia.net.net is my domain name.

There’s also business email; say you need 4 emails for your employees that are all with your domain name, that’s something that’s offered among many other products.
