How did PTC Computer Solutions get started?
When the internet first came to be I went around and gave presentations on how I thought businesses should get on the Internet because it might be a good advertising medium. It took a while to catch on, but eventually, I got some clients interested. With my coding experience from my various tech background areas, I was able to fit into that gap to help people who didn’t understand programming or code.
Tell me about your niche.
I specialize in the builder and developer arena because my father’s business was as a developer consultant for 30 years. When I began my business in 1996 I naturally latched on to some of his readily available contacts and we started in that spectrum.
What advice would you give to someone starting their own website?
People usually are coming to us because their Web site isn’t so successful. We try to understand the consumer. You want to understand who your consumer is and who your marketing to. It’s a big mistake to say, we’ll build it and they will come. It works in the field of dreams but doesn’t work anywhere else.
