My dad worked for a major heating and cooling supplier for 20 years and then he decided to go into business for himself.
My dad focused on commercial heating and cooling repairs and improvements.
My dad needed a website that would look good and be easy to navigate. My dad asked if I could help make the website. I thought that he was going to look for a supplier with more experience. I was only in my second year of school for graphic arts and website design. The Web site took some time to set up. I wanted to provide a little bit of information on all of the different services that my dad was going to offer. I also wanted to make sure the website was set up with plenty of keywords and links so the search engines would find my dad’s locale quickly. When the website ranks higher, more people will be able to find your business. It took almost a week for me to set everything up with the supplier website and a week later, dad decided to make the website live. Not one person called for days, and then 12 people called in a span of 24 hours, and after that more and more people continued to visit the website and call for help. My dad is almost 70 now. He still works at the business. I am in charge of the advertising and social media projects, and my brother is going to take over dad’s affairs eventually.
