Klaus operates a wine company and he uses Square to use his mobile device as a point of sale device. But when he comes home, he can't export any details to get shipping information after the sale. Leo says there are other options like Shopify and Lightspeed. Outside of that, maybe calling Square to find out would be a good idea.
Benny wants to create a website and wants to know if he should register a domain with GoDaddy. Leo says NO. He hates GoDaddy and their questionable business practices. And there are plenty of other domain registrars out there. Leo recommends HOVER.
What about web hosts? Leo says that Blogger is free, as is Wix. Leo also recommends Squarespace.
Ted wants to create a new website for his business after parting company with his partner. Is GoDaddy a good option? Leo says it's not his first choice because they use a site builder app that tends to be a bit out of date and makes no provision for mobile devices. Leo suggests SquareSpace. They have more modern site templates and can offer eCommerce. They also support mobile devices, and are very affordable. Google also has some nice site building tools.
Cheryl wants to know how to use social media to reach the most people. Leo says that most social media is set up that most won't hear her unless they follow her. So she'll have to build an audience. She can't expect to be heard by the masses automatically -- she'll have to generate interest. Leo says that a blog or a podcast are good options so she can own a place on the net and get her message out. Then she can use social media as an offshoot of that.
Don is planning on starting a blog. Should he use Wordpress.com or Wordpress.org? Leo says they are the same, except that WordPress.com is a hosting site and it will limit his options based on templates. If he has his own server or separate hosting, then WordPress.org will give him what he needs to install on his server. If he doesn't want to learn how web hosting works, then he should go with WordPress.com and let them do the heavy lifting.
