In the summer of 1995 my wife and I attended a street fair held in a little known city located east of Seattle. It was an annual event and one I normally didn’t even bother to put in the calendar.
But this year would be life changing, because of a man and his computer on the side- walk.
As we strolled through the booths and exhibits we came across this gentleman who was demonstrating how businesses could show their products and services on what he called the World Wide Web.
This was very intriguing to us as we were marketing to Alaska and maybe, just maybe, we could use what he was talking about to develop more business in this region.
Little did I know how much this man and his demonstration would change our world and the course of our businesses forever.
This introduction to the land of clicks, modems, and html was the beginning of our journey on the Internet.
What began as a simple way to market to Alaskans turned into a feverish race to stay on top of the search engines at that time. Search Engines like Web Crawler, Lycos, Excite, Infoseek, and Yahoo!
I imagine it could be compared to the early days of computer technology coming on the scene during the 1950’s.
Anyway you look at it, we had a hold of a tiger and boy was it a wild ride that kept me on my toes, on the phone and typing emails like a man with his hair on fire.
Those were the days and the beginnings of click for the little known company located just north of the Big M and Big B.
There’s more to come as we continue with the Tales of Click. Much, much more…
