How to Build a Successful Company’s Own Website
On the morning of March 17, 2016, I woke up to a new email from my friend and fellow cyntophile cyndi.
“I just got a message from my former boss telling me to do something about our website’s 404 error,” he wrote.
“He has been so nice, but I’m having a hard time believing I have not heard from him before.”
“It was a little bit embarrassing to hear this from my boss,” he added, “but it also felt a little sad that we hadn’t heard from each other in quite some time.”
At that point, I had been in a long-distance relationship for five years, but this was the first time I’d been in contact with a former boss.
“It feels strange to get an email from a coworker,” he continued.
“The idea that someone would send you this message, even if it was just a few words, just made me feel good.”
It took me some time to realize that my boss had a lot to answer for.
A year before, I’d worked at an online-only company for almost two years, where I was responsible for the design of our website.
At that time, I felt like I was in a bad relationship with my boss, but as time went on, I started to realize he was just not that bad, and I felt really sorry for him.
I thought he was a great person who was always giving me advice, and now that I was seeing that he was having a bad day, it made me sad for him that I had to be responsible for it.
I tried to ignore the message he sent me, and when I finally got a reply, it was only a few lines: “Hey, sorry about that.
It’s just something that I know you have to be careful of, and if you feel like you need it, you need to do some research first.”
I started writing back, but he wouldn’t respond.
“How long did it take you to get this message?”
“Well, I got it on the last day of work,” he replied.
“You have to understand that this is an important email from your boss,” I explained.
“This is your first time contacting your boss, and we have a lot of work to do before we can get your website ready for your customers.
I know that this can be hard for you to accept.
I understand that, but there’s a lot that we can do to make this a good experience for you.”
I felt so bad for him, because I had worked so hard to build our business.
We were building our brand and reputation, and it was so important to him that he would be able to keep all the trust in our company.
I explained that it would be difficult to change our website quickly, but it was worth it to him to have me on board.
I said that I would continue to build it as quickly as possible.
I felt guilty about not responding to his emails more often, and asked him if he could tell me how to fix this.
He replied that he’d have to check with me and see if I’d agree to the request.
I didn’t know how to respond to an email, so I was pretty confused about what I should do.
He explained that he had a team member with whom he’d been working on a redesign for a while, and that he knew that the redesign would be ready in about two weeks.
He added that he felt that we should take a little time to make sure that the website was up to scratch.
It took a little while, but when we got it, I was glad that I did.
He said that he thought the redesign was very polished, and he had some good feedback from the users, and there was a lot more interest in the website than we had anticipated.
“We should definitely have the website ready by next week,” he said.
I had a few things to say to him, but none of them would help.
After I got a few hours of sleep, I decided to do the right thing and email him a follow-up email.
“Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that I’ve been working with you guys to improve the website for our users,” I wrote.
I told him that we were still working on some minor changes that needed to be done before the website could be ready, but that we would do it within the next few weeks.
I also said that we needed to make a few more changes, because we were building up to the next big event, the New Year’s Eve party, which would be our first anniversary.
I asked him what he thought of our new logo, which he was happy to give me feedback on.
I added a link to our brand, and the link was broken.
I called my friend’s wife and told her that I needed her to get her husband to fix the logo.
He didn’t seem to be aware
