Meet the Member
Don Champoux

M.S.Windows Consulting

What I will do for you, as someone who owns a business, is help you be more productive with your computer and the software you use.

In our first meeting, which is free of charge, we will sit down together to discuss what is involved in running your business and how you use your computer and software to do that. My services can be useful to you whether you use your computer in a store front, an office with or without staff, or at home to run your business.

After I have an understanding of your business and where your computer fits in, I give you a proposal, on how you can use your computer and software more productively, which also includes a quote of what my service will cost you.  There is no charge until I start to work on increasing your productivity.

From the Blog

An excellent way to tell your company's story is through marketing videos. They support your sales staff presentations with compelling information. They enhance Search Engine Optimization (SEO) by attracting new online followers. They motivate your employees by sharing strategic plans. And they bring in new leads by providing current and potential customers with new reasons to do business with your company.

We all recall a short time ago when making a "corporate video" meant engaging a specialized video writer to research and draft a script and then engaging an experienced video company with videographers, studios and millions of dollars in equipment to produce a competent video.
