This can be a great way to meet new people and build your network. But when you can’t do this for yourself, you need a way to do it. You can do this during your business hours or on your own time.
How do you do it? Use your website to host an Internet Relay Chat (IRC). It’s one of the most popular and easiest ways around to do this. You can then post on the client’s site asking for help. The problem is that if you post in a way that doesn’t show up on their site in the first place, you might be ignored. It’s important to avoid that because it can cause a lot of harm.
You might have to be a bit clever though. If your client is a large corporation, you can send them a request to be added to a mailing list that only they can see. This way, they will know you are a big player in the industry. If your client is a small business, you can ask them for help in making your website easier to use, and then you can post questions and answers to the site.
Sometimes these requests get sent to the wrong address and become the cause of a big problem (like an ad for a new insurance program that will help people with high-risk behaviors). If someone else is confused, they can simply send a link to the main page with the request.
You can also create a new account on the site where you will be able to post questions and answers as well. This is perfect for small businesses who want to let the world know about their products or services. For a larger business, you can ask the client to send you their entire list of customers.
When you visit a website, your computer’s browser is sending a request to the site’s server to see if the site can be reached. If the site can’t be reached (or can be reached but with a different IP address), then a browser alert is sent to let the user know. The user can then click the link to go to the server with the bad info, and then contact the company for a direct complaint.
The problem with this method is that you usually are not going to get a very precise list of their customers. The only way to know if there is a direct connection between two sites is to check the IP addresses; if they are not the same, you know there is no connection. This method also requires the companies to pay you a referral fee to get their clients on your list.
The problem with this method is that it requires you to be an IT consultant; you have to spend a significant amount of time learning about the network to know what you are really looking for.
The problem is that it’s a fairly new concept, and this method was a fairly new concept when I was in the industry. They will probably come with a guide for you to use and it will be good to see what that guide looks like.
While I was in the industry the method I used was to get a referral from an IT consultant who was not a network consultant. Nowadays, with the technology, you can probably get a referral from an IT consultant with a degree from a good university (this does not apply to web design).
