Spending a lot of time on your company website might seem unavoidable, particularly if you are not a web designer. Free website builders often require you to learn web design or navigate the complexities of a web server. Lieberman Technologies created the RightOnTarget website with small business owners in mind. The RightOnTarget process is designed to go from phone call to launch in just 3 weeks.
Using a free or cheap website builder can make a website that is difficult to navigate, complicated to change, and doesn’t represent your business well. For the business owner who wants to take control of their online presence, we have developed the RightOnTarget website — an easy-to-use, easy-to-launch, web design solution created specifically for the small business owner.
If you’re a small business owner, you know that marketing your business is important if you want to be profitable. Because small businesses are budget-conscious, many do their own marketing as cheap as possible.

During the budgeting process, it’s not enough to focus solely on workstations, servers, infrastructure, or bandwidth. While these are important pieces of the overall puzzle, there are also other items to consider when creating your IT budget.

Even visitors who don’t understand HTTP and HTTPS want security from your site. As HTTPS becomes more prominent, non-HTTPS sites will stand out as being insecure and shake the vistors’ trust. By having a secure HTTPS site, my website is more secure and shows my customers that I care about their security.
More often than not, website development begins with a web designer. Most people begin with a vision and some absolutes for their website. The resulting development focuses more on the look and performance of the site. Content becomes a secondary concern in many cases. However, I propose that website content is every bit as important as the visual design, and in fact, you should begin the design process there.

Off-the-shelf software is very general in nature. It performs a limited task or set of tasks for a business, regardless of the type of business using it.

For some businesses, this can mean ditching off-the-shelf software in favor of custom software.
The best phone system is the one that suits your needs and doesn’t make you pay for things you don’t need. Instead of learning definitions and technologies, identify the needs you have for your phone network and let your salesperson do the hard part.
