Here is an email I see at least once per quarter, usually forward from a client. The full email is below, but the story starts that a company in Asia is seeking to register a domain with the same name as theirs. Continue »
And what really kills me is they were boneheaded enough to publish all of our email addresses in the CC field. That’s just plain rude.
So I apologize but I took advantage and responded to everyone offering our services. As business owners, exploiting opportunity must be our top priority.
Here’s my response:

What’s the best CMS for an ad agency website, complete with multiple blogs and password-protected areas?
– Kevin F. 24 / M / Lincoln, NE
Sounds like you have a big project on your hands. I think the most important thing to consider is that any one product that handles multiple blogs and group level access may have too many moving parts, be over developed, or be packaged software that requires extensive customization.
I’d recommend you carefully consider the various elements you need, why you’d want separate blogs, and what information needs to be password protected. I’d suggest you’d be better served by multiple, simple solutions than trying to force one of the popular open-source CMS’ to fit your mold.
3) By properly identifying your competitive niches by keyword (i.e. town/region or type of job), we can help grow specific aspects of your business.
4) By partnering with 3PRIME, your company greatly extends its control and interest in what your web presence represents for your business. This 24/7 sales presentation can become a much more critical asset to your business.

I’m actually creating my own website right now (and no, it’s not cosmetics-related) and I seek some advice from you regarding hosting. Just like you, I buy all my domains thru GoDaddy, only so far I never had to worry about hosting and FTP upload. I am reading horror stories online about GoDaddy hosting services and I’m having a hard time evaluating where the truth is… Some love it, some hate it!
Is GoDaddy a decent option for hosting? Or is it for suckers/newbies who don’t know any better?
Regarding hosting, I do recommend GoDaddy, but it may be that I am highly familiar with it, so I am used to ignoring the upsells they send you through when you are setting up services with them. I have had sites run poorly, I have had problems with hacking, but overall, with over 100 sites hosted with them I’d say they are good bet.
For someone better, and at $60 per year paid upfront very comparable in price, we use KnownHost.com. It takes longer to setup, you have to wait for emails and such (24 hours) but the control panel is much more powerful and the service is somewhat more reliable. Main difference, they don’t provide telephone support. So if you you want more personal support, go with godaddy.
What’s interesting about the use of the “cottage” terminology is it, to me, references “cottage industry” where people work independently to bring their “goods” to market. I suspect that for many people, who are comfortable with their niche in a larger organization, they are likely to feel alienated in a primarily telecommuting environment. However, I believe the author misses a key opportunity.
If employees acclimate themselves to working from home, it seems likely to me that those that are successful at it will expand their productivity to include other processes, new initiatives and new methods.
Perhaps the greatest potential outcome is that these individuals begin to offer their services to other individuals in addition to their employer, or completely evolve and specialize their niche service to offer it entirely as their own product, branded or unbranded. This can then lead to them needing additional persons to meet demand, and their “electronic cottage” becomes a “electronic cottage industry”.
