Nikole Haumont, former Go Daddy employee and current website designer (since 1999) talks about the importance of having your own domain, and keeping control of it; branded email, search engine optimization, keeping your site secure and updated and shares a couple of stories from her calls from frantic Go Daddy customers. Nikole also shares about building a site on a temporary domain, why you need an SSL, why she prefers Wordpress (now!) and touches on GDPR. She also explains why you should only pay 50% down on your site until the site is finished to your agreed upon terms in your website design contract.

Nikole also believes in helping small businesses by keeping overhead low and passing on the savings to her clients. "Yes, we are a business, but we believe the more people we help grow their business the more successful we all will be," says Nikole Haumont.
