SEO TIPS

The Secret to helping your business grow is to be less generous

SEO TIPS
Who would have thought this was the answer! It seems to take the fun out of having a business that does so much to help people and their businesses. In 10 years I've accomplished what none of my competitors or predecessors had been able to accomplish. This is accurate because I was hired in these cases because I was able to do what those before failed to accomplish. I also built a reputation of being a man of my word. My word is like Gold and while I stand by and watch con artists and scammers take the legitimacy out of an industry that can carry such a great reputation I am forced instead to constantly battle the doubts, cynicism and skepticism of people who have been taken advantage of by Internet companies and self proclaimed consultants who have no experience. Most of t...

The #1 Most Common Cause of Websites That Fail: “Measure Twice: Cut Once”

SEO TIPS
Sometimes our clients' biggest obstacles are inside their own management team or process(es). If your team members are creating road blocks by creating delays it's time to hold those people accountable. Those delays create bottlenecks and affect the schedules and accomplishments of other people on the team. Eventually this becomes resentment and frustration which leads to massive loss of productivity. If you hire someone to analyze and improve your SEO it may be because what you have tried isn't working. If you continue doing the same thing and insist that your new "SEO" people follow your own pattern of behavior you're going to get the same results as before. Sometimes fixing a traffic problem begins by looking inside your own company and not at the website itself. You can k...
Internet Marketing  and SEO Scams

Internet Marketing and SEO Scams

How Do You Avoid Throwing Away Money? SEO is a term that is often misused by people who claim to be SEO specialists. Some of these people are real predators in our industry and make the rest of us look bad. For their behavior we struggle to defy the character assaults by industry experts who take a condescending tone with "the SEO industry" which makes people wonder if there is any value to this practice. I have the same question about dental checkups. My toothpaste says if I brush daily I can avoid getting cavities. Done deal! I don't need a dentist. I will admit that there is more schooling involved in being a dentist and maybe it's not a great analogy. SEO is for real people. What isn't real are many of the folks who may lack the experience to be managing your particular busin...

When you embark on a road trip you might have a certain amount of time in mind to make the trip which means you have a certain schedule for your opportunities. If you drive for 30 days and cover X amount of miles per day you are more likely to see a wider variety of sites then if you only drive for 1 day and barely leave the city where you began. A comprehensive Internet marketing campaign is like this as well. There are many companies who want to fast track their internet marketing which is a viable possibility but this also limits the amount of time to acquire seasonal analytics, study marketing trends, test different results, utilize some key growth hacking techniques, and 100s of other pieces of a critical and effective marketing pattern. In order to really achieve long ter...

Proactive vs. Reactive SEO and Web Development

Growth Hackers, Growth Hacking, SEO TIPS, Today Tech Tips
I would like to share just a quick thought for the proactive conscious people out there. Web Development, SEO, Internet Marketing, technology in general, all have situations where experience can help to avoid cost overruns and missing scheduled deadlines for delivery. So here is a quick lesson today. Consider all options. Today we ran into a situation where we have been trying to figure out how to add a product calculation into a  Shopping Cart so that depending on how much of a product (in this case it is Astro Turf by the Sq Ft.) is being delivered the shipping cost will vary and it is a sliding scale depending on qty so the more you buy the more you save. The issue here is that a simple multiplier will not work because the variable changes with qty so stages need to be creat
