One of the best parts of our job as web designers is when we get to truly introduce someone to the internet. Yes, most people have an idea of what the internet is or at least know that it exists and can conjure up hilarious videos of office pranks or tell us movie listings at our closest theatre, but unless your daily life involves something internet related, you might feel like the entire concept is still a little over your head.
Understand the internet and help your business
We’re around the web community a lot, so we often forget that everyone isn’t submerged in this world as they go about their day-to-day work. Because we design websites for business owners who sometimes sell products or services completely unrelated to the internet, we have the pleasure of showing them all of the ways that the internet can help to grow their business. We have seen countless individuals who start by feeling like they will never have a handle on the internet and then watch as their business thrives online.
Who knew that someone on the other side of the world would be interested in their product?!
(Check out our post “Mastering International ECommerce” for more information about that idea.)
Don’t fear the internet
At Trifunk, you may have noticed that we are passionate about removing confusing tech talk from conversations with our clients about web design. We love when we come across like-minded people who are committed to helping others understand the internet and web design – people like the ones behind dontfeartheinternet.com.
Don’t Fear the Internet is a site dedicated to teaching people about web design through simple, witty tutorials. From our understanding, their audience is often individuals who work in the design world and who would like a little more knowledge when they are speaking with web developers, but we’ve watched some of their tutorials and we think that anyone looking for a better understanding of the internet would like them.
Get right in there!
The internet is at a point where you can no longer leave it up to the experts to deal with. It’s bigger than that and even if you will never build a website, the basic knowledge they cover can help you to understand what is going on with your site.

As always, we’re here to help! Drop us a line if you have any questions about how we can help with your website design. We’re really friendly and promise not to throw around confusing internet jargon. That would be rude and we frown upon rudeness.
