Starting a New Business? Start Here.
If you’ve ever dreamed about starting a business — being your own boss, setting your own hours, working at a job you love — then you’ve taken that first important step. But that’s easier said than done. At DTG web services, we know the importance of a good website; but how are you going to get one going and who do you call.
Do you know how to get a .com address for your site? And what about email? It’s critical, sure, but what’s the best way to get it. Gmail sounds good, and it’s cheap, but is it really a business quality service? And what about hardware? Do you want to buy and maintain your own servers? Do you even want to own your own PCs? And how about a wireless network? The sheer volume of things that you need to know and problems you need to solve before you can even get started can be crippling. But it doesn’t need to be.
AT DTG, we make it easy for you to adapt to the new changes. We have the in house skills and personal needed to make your business a success without cleaning out your bank account. We are up to date on today’s technology for both the internet and hardware applications to keep your business up and going for many years. This is through hard work and over 30 years of experience in the Connecticut area.
What does it take to become successful?
If you answered “money,” you’d be right — but only partly. More important at this stage — when your dream to start a business is still just a dream — is determining whether you really have “the goods” to be an entrepreneur. Technology has quickly become a small business owner’s best friend. Whether it is accounting software or business plan software, technology has leveled the playing field, making it possible for small businesses to compete with the big guys. Businesses of all sizes now have access to the same technology that is helping to increase productivity and sales.
Not many businesses thrive in today’s online world without a presence on the Internet. To get a website up and running, a Web hosting service is needed. The services store the files that make up a website on a data server, which then uploads them directly to the Web. That provides an Internet connection and a way for consumers to access the site through a domain name of their choosing. The services offer a number of options, including website builders that entrepreneurs can use to design the site, one-click installation of supported apps, email functionality and an unlimited number of email addresses that include the site’s domain name.
In order to succeed, it is important for business owners to maximize productivity around the office. Time tracking and management software monitors what is being accomplished so business owners can better manage the time and productivity of their employees. The software monitors and records employee hours, including work hours, vacation time, sick leave, overtime and projects. In addition, the software has the ability to track individual projects, as well as expenses, invoices and customers.
With business owners relying on computers more than ever, it is important to make sure the information stored on them is protected. Online storage services provide computer users with a place to store their files online, should something happen to the computer, including accidental erasures, hard drive failures and theft. Since the data is being stored online in the cloud, online data storage services also give business owners the convenience of being able to access their files from anywhere with an Internet connection. Online storage services also provide a place to store large files in order to free up space on a computer’s hard drive.
