Partnering, Not Pandering

I want to have long term success, and I feel that the best way to build lasting relationships is by being honest. In business, people often use a surface facade when they are communicating, telling people who can help them exactly what they want to hear. I am a nice person and I keep it real so that a genuine relationship can develop. This is not to say that I have no understanding of decorum, but there is a difference between being professional and being fake.

One of the nice things about working on the web is that things tend to speak for themselves. In most cases, when you see a well designed web site, you recognize it, and when you read quality content, it is self evident.

Ideally, I would like to work with individual clients and web marketing and design people who are cool, smart, down-to-earth, and laid back. I want to partner beyond the ego and work together like different aspects of the same whole. In other words, you think it and I provide it.

The Internet is about efficiency and getting things done rather than talking about them so we have lots of time to do other things. That is where my head is, and I am all about building relationships with creative people who feel the same way.

One last thing is that I write well. Some things never change, and quality always matters, regardless of the medium. Don't settle for passable content written by someone who isn't really a writer. In the long run, people will notice that you have built on a flawed foundation; you will hit the wall, and entropy will set in.
