IT Terms for Business owners made simpler

Let me share a mistake I made when I was still starting my business. In the beginning, I kept wondering why I was not getting clients. I kept getting one rejection after another.

Until one day, I had this terrible experience. I met up with a representative of a used-car company. My goal was to impress him and earn his trust. I wanted to show off my expertise in the IT programming field. I thought that was the only way to get him on a deal with me. I thought that was the only way to get his trust.

Surprisingly, he got mad at me and told me to leave. What he said struck me. "Are you an alien? Can't you talk in Japanese?"

It was a long trip home so I got the time to meditate on what just happened to me. I realized that was the reason why I kept being rejected.

It was not supposed to be all about me. It should be about them. I should be asking them about their company. About their struggles. Not my achievements and success.

I then invented ways to explain some terms to business owners/representatives, in a way that they could easily understand.

Here are some:

  1. Click -> Push
  2. Link text -> Blue text
  3. Drag and Drop -> Push the icon, move, and release!
  4. Datacenter -> An Office in a high-security building
  5. Database -> like a box to store files
  6. Server -> a membership of a company; You have access if you are a member
  7. Login ID and Password -> a combination word to enter a house.
  8. Domain -> serves as a contact detail for your Business Cards
