Jake Goldman from Oneup.com
Jake Goldman is my guest on Money 2.0 and is an expert in distributive website development. What, you have never heard of distributive website development? Don’t worry, neither had I. My reason for inviting Jake on the show is that he knows a lot about websites. Websites are now becoming the first thing any new business owner does as it’s a way to introduce themselves to the world and most important of all, tell their story as opposed to having some-one else tell it for them.
Jake owns and operates is own company called 10up.com. As you can guess, 10up.com is a distributive website development company that specializes in unique and powerful websites for high-end client needs. Jake’s background is in web design, where he started in the mid-90s working on freelance projects to now running his own company.
Jake explains what the distributive model is and why he employs it in his business. He says the key advantage with the model is that he can pool the best talent for his business without being restricted geographically, which he notes is an outdated business model for his industry. Jake also talks about his company’s hiring process and the tools that come in handy in working with remote workers.
Jake’s company specializes in WordPress. He says WordPress is a unique platform in that it focuses on the publisher’s experience. He says they chose the platform for their clients as one does not have to be a developer to maintain a company website; the tools inside the platform are not too technical.
Jake describes the versatility of WordPress, saying a business can go to WordPress.com and create a free website, or they can hire consultants like 10up and have their company site set up for them.
If you have a website and want to take it to the next level, you will find my conversation with Jake very interesting. If you don’t have a website, then you will definitely find my conversation with Jake interesting as you’ll better understand why it is so important.
