Well hello there!
I know you were probably expecting a bland coming soon page like the one I’ve had up on impriv.com for the last 2 years but I’ve come to a point that my business has morphed into something new, Edward Kado Web Services.
In late 2014, I started impriv with the goal of earning some extra cash by offering web design and piecemeal marketing services to small businesses. After 4 years, I’m able to look back and say I made the right choice starting this business.
There are few better feelings than being able to help people help themselves. To be a part of their entrepreneurial journey and help keep them on the path moving forward. This can look like many things. For one client, it means helping a newly retired couple start their first business well into their 50s or building a custom website with a unique look to help a real estate agent achieve a ranking in the top 10% of agents in California. I’ve never been one to really care about being fulfilled in my work but this business has brought a sense of pride and fulfillment I didn’t know I was looking for.
As with all things in life though, things must evolve if they are to survive. Over the past 3 years, I came to discover that people didn’t hire impriv, they hired me, Edward Kado. That realization has caused me rethink how I run my small business and also consider the loyalty that I owe my clients, not just the reverse.
From my perspective, too many companies obsess about how to keep their customer’s loyalty without giving much thought to how it can stay loyal to its’ customers (looking at you Cox Communications). After seeing how disastrous this oversight can be, I’ve constructed a simple framework on how to govern my thoughts and actions both in business and in my personal relationships.
If I could condense this modus operandi into a sentence, it would be this. To offer the exact services that my clients need, at the right time, at a fair price, without regard to the financial upside for myself. Simply said, doing what is 100% in the best interest of my clients, even if it means taking a pay cut.
My experience is that if you take care of people, they will by and large, do the same in return. This methodology to business is why I owe much of my business each year to referrals.
With that said, I’ve decided to rename my business from impriv to Edward Kado Web Services. It’s a re-commitment to my clients that you’re doing business with me, Edward Kado and that I will always act with your best interests at heart. A web developer and business consultant with a fiduciary duty.
If you visited impriv.com and ended up here. I’d love to delighted to chat and see how I can help. Feel free to book a time on my calendar at https://edwardkado.com/schedule/.
As always, wishing you all the best out of life. If you ever need anything, please don’t be afraid to electronically holler! 🙂
