Joe the Web Guy
(“I learned the hard way so you don’t have to!”)
Every month Joe the Web Guy helps listeners take control of how the Internet impacts their businesses – and their revenue.
Joe talks about the latest news from the digital world, but most importantly, he answers your burning tech questions. He, too, has run companies (and is still running companies), and got really, really mad about how businesses were being held hostage to technology. He learned – a lot – the hard way – so you don’t have to. He has real-world, constantly updated insights on what works – and how you can take back the control of your business. He covers it all – websites, Internet marketing, Google, CRM (customer relationship management) systems, CMS (content management systems), and all else digital.
This is where you’ll learn what you need to know to manage the tech side (and tech marketing side) of your business as effectively as you manage all other aspects. There is no other show like this, and it’s your chance to get those important questions answered.
About Joe the Web Guy
Joe Mckenna is passionate about leveling the playing field for small businesses. The internet has been around long enough that you can’t get revenue traction anymore unless you know the rules of the digital game and the tools that the winners use.
Joe has co-founded two technology companies: Cloud Potential (“Creating content Google and your customers will love”), and Cornerstone Marketing Center (“Stuck and need help with your website or cloud app? We’ll get you set up. Fast.”) He also co-founded Cloud Wise Academy, a fast-paced technology school, that is teaching people the latest in-demand technology skills. Joe also was the president of a leading background check company (where he used technology to increase revenue and lower costs – and they called him the “app whisperer”) before co-founding Cloud Potential.
