What do I do?
I can help you solve a problem. The problem might be that you need to organize your paperwork, i.e. sales orders, notes from customers/clients, purchase orders…you need to create and keep track of invoices…you need to take payments in and match them to those invoices.

IMAGINATION is more important than knowledge. ~ Albert Einstein

These problems could mean you need a database to solve them. I create databases to handle all the tasks you need to complete. I use FileMaker Pro as my database creation tool, and I use it in combination with other programs you may already have, like Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Entourage), Adobe Acrobat (pdf files), Adobe DreamWeaver (web sites), your e-mail program (Mail, Outlook, etc.) and your web browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, etc.)

Web sites and Internet Marketing
You might want to put your business on the Internet…you want people to be able to see you there. For this I would help you to create a web presence, a web site.

You might also want to create an online marketing campaign for your web site. Here we'd talk about your budget and how and what you want people to see your business on the Internet. I'll help you create campaigns using services like Google and Yahoo Search Marketing, as well as research the best places, many of them free, to advertise in your local market.

Anything I do for you will involve a project analysis. We'll sit down and figure out exactly what it is you want to do, and how you want to do it. You may want to do the work in stages, you may want to do several projects simultaneously. Talking it out and writing it down at the beginning will save a lot of heartburn along the way.

That's some of what I do. To discuss your project, give me a call on (510) 984-1238 or e-mail info at barenose dot com
