About Voiceconnect Internet Solutions (vcis)
I started Voiceconnect Internet Solutions in 2006. In the beginning, it was just a sideline business to keep me busy with web design.
In the early days of the Internet and when I was still single, I liked to ran my own website and enjoyed it very much. I decided to do this for other people as well and that I when the company was formed.
I was working in the corporate environment and in 2008 I was asked to move to Johannesburg or get retrenched. All my support structures down in the Cape and I did not want to move up north.
I was recently married and my wife was pregnant with our second child so I took the retrenchment package. Just after I left the corporate world, the recession hit in 2008 and building the company was a struggle from day one.
Over the years I manged to keep upskilling myself with the latest technologies and tried a few different things, but I have always loved making websites.
These days things are much easier as in the early days, but at the same time much harder as now you 100’s of web designers to compete against.
Show me the Money - Jerry Maquire
Where I am today makes me always think about the movie Jerry Maguire. Not so much for the famous line of “Show me the money!” - though I do like my clients to show me…
The movie started where Jerry decided that less is more and that he should have less clients and do more for them. He did not want to chase after everybody like they always say in sales, it’s all about the numbers.
As I am getting older, it’s not allways about making money anymore. I like to bring value to a customer. I like to help my clients make a success of their businesses, and if they are happy and paying me for my services, we are both in a beneficial relationship.
Less is More
As one of my mentors told me, not all clients are created equel or that you do not want any client you can get.
If you think that we could be good for each other, let me know and we can setup a meeting to decide if we are a good fit for each other.
Remember, I do not take everybody on and there is not hard feelings from my side if things do no word out. Sometimes it is just what it is.
