hyperlinksWe love technology. It makes our lives easier, and it makes it easier to manage the various necessities. Can you imagine a world without online banking? I sure wouldn’t want to go back to writing and mailing checks each month. But in making information more attainable to us, it also makes it more available to the bad guys. Identity theft is a major problem affecting over 15 million Americans each year and costing financial losses exceeding $50 billion!*
So without going completely off-the-grid, how to we protect ourselves while still enjoying the best technology has to offer? There are a number of ways to protect yourself online and they all center on being careful, attentive, and thorough in your online dealings. Add a comment

Why do I need a website?

More than 55% of small businesses don’t have a website. Many don’t see the benefit, or don’t have the time to commit to it. However, up to 85% of potential customers research a business online first. Without a web presence, those potential customers will likely find your competition online instead.

How Content Affects Your SEO

pandas eat fresh 300x199If you’ve been following along with our SEO series so far you have learned what SEO ishow to determine your ideal keywords, and where to use your keywords once you’ve established them.

Now it’s time to talk content.

There’s a saying in the web world “Content is King”. Whether “Content is Queen”, “Content is Dictator”, or “Content is the Holy Grail” speaks to you louder, ultimately the message is “Holy cow, content is the MOST important factor in creating a successful website and SEO campaign”! You can do all of the paid marketing, promotions, inbound-linking, and social media you want, but if your content isn’t useful, fresh, and relevant, none of it will matter.

Tips to Increase Your Email Newsletter Subscribers

1. Communicate the Value of the List
Is nobody subscribing to your email newsletter list? Or are the subscription numbers less than you’d like? Perhaps guests to your website aren’t seeing a need to subscribe.

Purchased vs. Organic Search Engine Results

cookies 390593 640 300x199The goal of any website is to be found and therefore generate viewers and perhaps some money. Of course we’d like that to happen immediately, for free, for everything that we do, automatically, and maybe even have some cookies delivered along the way too, just because we’re doing such a great job.

Unfortunately, that’s just not how the internet works. We’re all vying for the top position and obviously we can’t all have it. Instead, we have to choose how we’re going to go about getting the best rankings for our business for the keywords we want to focus on (which you can find help choosing by reading some of our previous posts).
