One of the most common statements used when selling Internet Marketing is “We can drive traffic to your website!”. This is a true statement – if all you want is traffic. Is it qualified traffic though? It would be like dropping off a bus load of kids under the age of 16 at a car dealership. The dealership would have a lot of people (traffic) in it; but really not quite qualified to buy any cars. If all you are getting is traffic, then there is no real ROI – just a bunch of traffic.

I have been browsing around quite a few Facebook business pages, only to see so many small businesses putting a lot of effort into their posting – however, with very little response from those following them. We find this sometimes with ours as well…so trust me, you’re not alone.
I asked myself why?
What can we (you and I) do differently, that will open our pages up to make others want to engage / comment? I set off to do some research and experimenting.

I know, you’re asking me – and you’re telling me this because??
Let me explain. As I reflected about the change it made in how I felt I presented myself in front of others, it made me think about one’s website – and how a few minor or subtle changes, can make a difference in how you present your business to the world.

As creatures of habit, we allow ourselves to become stagnant – just like we allow our websites to do the same thing. We don’t invest in making the changes needed in order to keep current with the times. As visitors come to visit our websites, they see the same old outdated look with nothing new to read. They may come back a time or 2 to see if anything has changed – then stop coming all together. Once they stop coming, you’ve lost that potential client. Continue reading
Over the past 11 years we have seen some truly amazing things happen. The birth of Google, the turning point of AOL, the rise and fall of the Dot Com, the introduction of Flash, banner ads, dial up 14.4 connection to High Speed internet service, static websites to dynamically driven websites, e-commerce websites, cell phones to smart phones… and so much more.
