Who he is
Happy to introduce to you Donald Basch, Founder, CIO (chief information officer), Mr. Photodon himself! It was a great time listening to the brains/imagination behind all the wonder that is Photodon.com.
It may look like any other individually owned website business but there’s so much more to it than just quality products! The service and sincere care you receive from the staff, Photodon’s people, (like Don), are what make it a place to shop and to keep shopping at.
Here’s how my interview went with Mr. Photodon:
- Lisa (that’s me): “So when did you create your own web based business?”
Don: “I started back in 1999.”
- Lisa:”Tell me what you do here at Photodon.com. “
Don:”As Founder my job has changed from laying out the business framework to creating a work environment for others. I now consider myself CIO.”
- Lisa:”Your store has a lot of equipment care type products. Would you say you have a favorite product?”
Don:”I really like using the Bubble Microfiber Cloth that we sell as a screen care cloth as a washcloth!” Don chuckles, “It really works great!”
- Lisa:”Yes I see you now have it listed as a washcloth in addition to screen and lens care!”
Don:”Our best product is our screen protective film. The anti-glare film is most popular. I have to say the film I have cut for my new Droid X is my second favorite product. I really like this new toy!”
- Lisa:”Alright Mr. Photodon, tell us about your workplace. What’s it like?”
Don:”It’s a wonderful atmosphere! We have put together a great bunch of folks. They can get the work done and have fun at the same time.”
- Lisa:”Don, get personal with us if you would. Tell us a couple fun things about you.”
Don:”Well let’s see… I love coffee! Can’t function without it; the pot brews all day long. I really enjoy Photography. I always have some music tune being played in my head.”
We’re glad you made us a Team!
