    If you own your own business or website, how do you describe yourself in terms of occupation or job title? Personally I generally use "Owner" or "Admin", what about you?

    I think "Admin" would alone be a good description.
    I'm also thinking of using the term "Webmaster."

    It depends on what the business actually is. For instance, Fergal uses "Admin", which for him would make sense as both the owner and administrator of this forum. "Webmaster" makes it sound like you are in charge of designing the website and making sure it works properly, but do not actually run the business. In that case, "Owner-Manager" could be more accurate to describe what you actually do. As a National Sales Director, I have an affiliate site with the company I work for, but do not own it. The two men who own the company each refer to themselves as "Managing Partner"

    I use Admin/Administrator. But for the more serious boards I think Owner / Webmaster would generaly be the best choice.

    For my business: Owner/Founder (I use either)
    For my website: Webmaster

    The term administrator is way over used.

    Some interesting titles there. You probably need to be a little careful using the title Admin, people who are not familiar with online communities may assume that you are describing yourself as the Administrator, i.e. the person who handles the paperwork in the business. I like the sound of Founder, it is used by quite a few very well known people, who have set up really successful online businesses.

    For my business (offline) I use either Owner or Director depending on what I am saying or to whom.

    For websites, I consider myself as webmaster and also I am a sole proprietor (to put it in a business perspective) of my sites.

    If it is offline business, then I prefer Managing Director/CEO. And if it is online business I prefer Admin.
