It’s Ok To Say No

I never make New Years resolutions but each year I focus on a phrase that will help me take the next step to being the person I want to be. Many times that could be a single word such as "Focus" or "Simplify" and while I still continue to work on those things each...

About Frank Deardurff

An early love for graphics brought me online 20 years ago which lead me to consume a vast knowledge in Frank - That One Web Guymarketing, conversion, design and various types of web technologies. That information led to becoming a serial entrepreneur, author, coach, trainer and That One Web Guy! Discover More »

Many thanks for your critique yesterday. You have provided a clear pathway for me to delegate and I’m very grateful for that. It’s a pleasure to see an expert at work! The recording was a real surprise bonus too - So sincere thanks again.

If you want a direct-response web site that works without spending every last cent you have and without wasting your precious time playing babysitter to an impossible-to-track-down designer call ThatOneWebGuy.com. Frank is fast, responsive and extremely affordable. I especially appreciate his firm grasp of direct marketing principles, which means I never have to waste time justifying why I want my sites to look a certain way he delivers exactly what I want the first time out. Snatch him up while you still can!

We would not even have a website up if it weren't for Frank Deardurff. His understanding of the Internet Marketing world was key to helping us get our website up and have it integrated to all the moving parts such as shopping cart and autoresponder. There are so many things non-techies like us don't even think about. That's where Frank comes in! And he has helped us make the site beautiful. Thanks, Frank for being so easy to work with - we appreciate you!

Frank Deardurff's Inner Circle is incredible! I was having an issue with PhotoShop and reached out to Frank. Within 30 minutes he had recorded a video just for me showing exactly what I needed to do. Now that's what I call service!
Frank is one Amazing Guy! He is a webmaster, Graphic Designer, IT Know-it-all, and a great and true friend. Whatever you have a question on, Frank will know the answer. We compare Photoshop tricks often - he being again - That One Know It All! And I love it. He created the Ask Database, and is ThatOneWebGuy, has telesemianrs for those who don't know how to do anything, and walks them easily through it all. This is a man worth getting to know.

Frank I'd like to personally thank you so very much for putting together this material. I've been playing around with HTML for a while now and definitely at the level of know enough to be dangerous. While I'm completely satisfied with my webmaster there are times where I defintiely want to make a couple minor tweaks and with the knowledge I've gained from your material you make that a reality, so thank you again for taking the time for putting the material in such a simple to understand fashion yet at the same time making it so powerful to use. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to get to the next step and having more flexibility and potential not needing the services of a webmaster at all. Thank You!

I just wanted to say, i'm very excited about WordPress Strategies because I've know about the power of wordpress for quite sometime. I've worked with several different people to install wordpress and turn it into things like membership sites and salespages and so forth but, the fact is i'm not very technical. I can do the different steps but it takes me forever and I have had difficulty finding people who were technical, but also fluid in how to make WordPress work. So when I found out that Frank who is someone that I enormously respect for his understanding of wordpress and he's worked on some of the most impressive wordpress installations that I know of, in fact I've learned a lot of what I know from Frank, so when I found out he had created step by step videos for how to do this I realized that this not only something I can use but I've reffered several of my coaching students to use it as well because WordPress is such a fantastic platform and finally someone has taken any confusion out of it and just made it a simple no brainer step-by-step way to use it. So if you're looking for a website or if you are want to set up a blog this is all you need thats it. You know wordpress is free, the different steps you need to take is all spelled out, you don't need a webmaster, you don't need to stress out about it, every single step has been demonstrated in video format its absolutely brilliant Frank I'm really excited you created this, thanks a lot buddy.

WordPress Strategies is an invaluable resource. I had no prior experience and I went from zero-to-online in ONE day after watching all the available videos. The step-by-step instructions are easy to understand and follow. I've saved thousands of dollars in web design and tech support by using Wordpress Strategies...and the best part is, I'm the one in control of my site! Thanks so much!

Frank Deardurff is a man of character that you can trust. That's why I asked him to teach a full-day workshop on web design at one of my weekend home business conventions. He is the expert web master that Internet Millionaires turn to when they have a problem they can't solve. If you're ready to learn the technical side of the Internet, Frank is the only teacher you need.

Hi, this is Lynn Pierce of lynnpierce.com and Frank Deardurff has been a cherished resource for me over the last several years as I've built my information marketing business. As a non-techie, I really appreciate how someone as knowledgeable as Frank, can still simplify what he teaches to the point that anyone can understand it, and follow what he does. Frank is the ONLY webguy when it comes to putting together all the tools you need to be successful. In fact, thanks to Frank, I use the web basics that he teaches and the tools he recommends on a daily basis and they are a vital component in not only marketing my products online, but also offline events, like the Women's Business Empowerment Summit each year.- So Thanks Frank!

Frank, I can’t begin to express my gratitude and amazement at your help today. Last week we spoke about you helping me redesign and reprogram my web site to help with my conversion rate. In the meantime, I played around with – and totally screwed up – my home page. Just after I bought a whole new round of pay per click traffic, too! I called you in a panic, hoping that you could at least help me how to undo the worst of the damage until you could take a serious look and fix it. Instead, you downloaded the page, asked me three questions, and totally fixed – and improved – the page in about five minutes. Before we were done chatting, you had emailed the new page to me, explained exactly how I should upload it, and what procedure to follow to avoid making this mistake again. Even though I was feeling like an idiot, you were totally respectful, upbeat, calm, understanding, and reassuring. Thank you so much for all your help!

Hi, I’m Valerie Dawson of TheDawsonMethod.com. When I first started working with Frank about 6 years ago, I was a newbie and a true techno-phobe. But with Frank’s excellent coaching and training, I was able to learn how to quickly create a website to sell my info product. And to my surprise, it actually made money right away! Today, I now have mulitple info products, and I absolutely love getting all the checks in the mail every month, even for the products I created a long time ago! Just one product alone has generated over 6 figures in passive income! Now here’s my secret: I still don’t know much about html or any computer technology. What Frank did for me, is he broke down the information in a way that I could easily understand it, so I would know how to delegate and have others do the work for me. Frank is truly a wonderful, patient teacher who really wants you to succeed. I am so grateful for Frank’s guidance and I highly recommend his products and services.

“Frank Deardurff is a consummate and multi-talented web professional — and his excellent work speaks for itself. Unlike other web designers I’ve encountered, Frank has a firm grasp of direct-response marketing and knows how to translate a website’s sales process into web design and technology that works. Combined with his fast turn-around time and reasonable prices, he’s the No. 1 choice in my book.
