Are you alienating your visitors?

Earthlings like us are looking for intelligent life in the black hole of the internet. Are you scaring us off with confusing language or strange graphics? It’s time to speak well and prosper.

Are you visible on mobile?

It's here. Google is now showing websites on mobile devices ONLY if the site is built for mobile. Dubbed "Mobilegeddon," this change means some visitors won't find your site at all if you're not mobile-ready. All set? Then let's talk blogging to increase visits to your website.

Did your 2014 marketing deliver recognition? New business? Growth? If not, it's time to take a closer look at inbound marketing--today's marketing. Inbound draws people in when they're searching for what you offer. Where? Online, of course.
