Linda Johnson: Getting online in the bush.
In an age where most business and communication is conducted over a smart phone, having an up-to-date internet presence is vital and need not be expensive or difficult. Linda is a web designer and graphic artist who left her job as a Marketing Manager in Sydney to move to Gloucester nearly 14 years ago with her husband. She understands the need to be flexible while earning a living in a small country area. The use of the internet has been vital to reach a larger market and she has several online businesses as well as providing design services for other businesses.
Whether it’s for spreading ideas and information, starting or enhancing a business, or just keeping in touch, nobody can afford to be offline these days. Linda discusses the limitations of telecommunications in the bush and how to work around them, showing you can still run an online business and present yourself professionally to the world wherever you are.
