Dan Elder, owner of TopSarge, Centex Webdesign, and Milvet Host, has created virtual sites since 1991.
The 26-year Army retiree began creating Bulletin Board Systems before the Internet’s popularity took over. That grew to him designing websites, which is one of the many functions of Centex Webdesign. His knowledge of the World Wide Web led to the creation of his three businesses after he retired as command sergeant major in 2009.
Elder’s Killeen-based businesses helps other entrepreneurs learn how best they can operate on the Internet, by creating their own web page, managing their web presence or posting to Facebook.
“There is a lot that goes into it…,” Elder said. “There is not one cookie-cutter approach.”
Elder talked with Killeen Daily Herald Business Editor Mason W. Canales about Internet marketing.
