Expose Yourself, Yourself!

It is no secret there is no shortage of people out there willing to take your money in exchange for “improving your presence on search engines” or “improving your exposure on “businessListings.com”.

Phew, that was a gap and a half

OK, so I just realized I’ve become the plumber with the leaky faucet and the cobbler with no shoes.  I tend to preach (nicely) to my clients about content being king.  Then I go and ignore my website and blog for a few months. Not cool.  I’m here to remedy that.  No promises about anything…

A Little Keyword 101

If you have headed down the road of Search Engine Optimization, you are familiar with the importance of “keyword phrases”. These are the bread and butter of any organization’s SEO strategy and are the “meat” in the Internet marketing sandwich. (or soy burger if you prefer!)

Get The Word Out!

This week’s tip comes to us from the land of the Ginsu knives, the Magic Bullet, Tony Little’s Gazelle or even the Snuggie. The main thing these items have in common, besides making you blush when you admit you own one (or MORE than 1, in the case of the Snuggie), is that they were…

Riding the mobile wave

Is your website mobile-friendly? Is it “responsive”? (that’s the fancy term for “viewable on a mobile device.) We really don’t have a choice in today’s online marketplace. If your visitors are exploring companies like yours on their phones and tablets, you had better be making some adjustments to your site. You have a couple of…

What do you mean I have to PAY for Facebook?

Sure, Facebook is free. It is free to sign up. It is free to create a business/fan page. It is free to post updates about your business, images, videos, etc. It is free to build your very own “views” and add Youtube videos, contact options, and a bevy of other free apps and functions. But…
