Our topics revolve around 'Building Stuff' on the web. That may be the macro of building a business, building a team, building traffic, building sales, building websites... Or the micro of building great products, services, landing pages, building a list or website features. So it is more business and tech focused.

Currently this is a solo project, but we have plans to introduce 'interviews' in the future! Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/matt-levenhagen/support

    Generating Product or Service Ideas .. And Letting them Simmer.

    Generating Product or Service Ideas .. And Letting them Simmer.

    In this episode I talk about generating ideas and brainstorming.  This something I take very seriously in my own business.  It's a never ending process...  and often ideas simmer for long periods so I can develop them.  When they are ready, they may see the light.

    I touch on a recent idea that is just now seeing the light of day.  It's something that started to gel around a year ago.  I thought of a name for a product, bought the domain, have thought about the sales page, how I'll market it and who my audience is; I didn't start start developing the product until this past week.

    WooCommerce to the Rescue

    WooCommerce to the Rescue

    This episode digs into the awesomeness of WooCommerce - a WordPress eCommerce plugin.  I have been using and developing with WooCommerce for years.  It's my go to solution if one of my clients needs to sell products on their website (digital or physical).

    We have an eCommerce WordPress theme at Hexater called, Furniture Shop.  Hexater.com itself is driven by a cart-less install of WooCommerce (we use Freemius for the cart).  I've built and manage WooCommerce for clients.

    WooCommerce is great to use out of the box, but you can also customize it to be whatever you want it to be.

    Getting Started with a New Developer

    If you're an agency that needs to or is trying to hire good web developers or have some other reason you need to find good people to do work for you, this episode is for you.

    After building multiple teams over the years I've learned some lessons that helps me find good people relatively consistently (knock on wood). I've hired people to help me build niche sites, create content, design and develop. I've worked with creatives and tech'y people to build stuff on the web.

    There's a process and some key things you need to consider if you are going to have success; considerations depending on who you are seeking and from where. Enjoy!

    Just Launch It

    Just Launch It

    This episode will take us on a journey into my past.  I reference a thread I participated in on the Warrior Forum back in 2003-04.  When I was active there.

    We're talking about just getting something launched and not getting caught up in making everything perfect before you take action.  Just launch it!  Too many spend weeks, months or even years because they don't feel confident that they are ready and everything is perfect.

    When the real answer is to just get something minimal viable together and get it out there.  By the time some people launch 1 product or service they could have tested 10 and found that winner.

    A Conversation with Doland White

    A Conversation with Doland White

    This is a conversation with the one and only Doland White.

    Doland and I met while working at the same company a few years ago.. he was the CEO and I was just one of the web development grunts. ;)  ...but no, we built their WordPress business together and he taught me a lot as I helped build the themes and a team of designers and developers.

    He's been involved with technology in some shape or form for over 3 decades.  He worked at IBM, 11 years at Novell, Symantec.. and other great companies.  He started as a programmer, made his way into management and beyond.  There is SO MUCH to learn from him!

    In this episode we dig into the business of building a business.  How to keep things simple in the beginning, how to put things in place so you don't get overwhelmed, growth vs scaling and so much more!

    Web Page Walk Thru: Team Pages!

    Web Page Walk Thru: Team Pages!

    This is a new type of segment for the Builders Crew! I’ve chosen a specific type of page on a website (the Team Page) and we’re going to go through a project from start to finish. This will be great for anyone that has or is planning a team page .. whether that’s your business OR something you are building for someone else.

    I’m providing some background on the project as a whole and the relationship between us, the agency and client. We’ll look at what decisions and changes were made along the way and what impact they had. As well as how that process looked.
