The web designers did what they do best: created nice graphics and interesting layouts with no consideration for search engines and the overall experience from the searchable click … to the resulting page. While not all visitors will go through search, Google looks at overall ‘health’ of a website, and any page, rank or traffic loss is exactly that… a LOSS.
This is not an exhaustive video, but done quickly after seeing important issues at first glance.

The saying goes: “what gets measured, gets done” (reference).
That means in effect – you can make an impact on your business activity and results by adjusting to what is working. On the flip-side don’t spend time or energy on the things that don’t.
But, how do you know what to focus on from you existing work, content posts and user engagement?
This short 2 minute video shows you a way to create actionable intelligence from that work.
You’ve heard it before: Half of all small businesses are doomed to fail before their first year is out.
You’d think this statistic would put people off of opening small companies – especially high risk ones like restaurants and retail stores – but this doesn’t seem to be the case.
When it comes to functionality, the general statistics are equally dire.
Statistics only get more discouraging as time goes on: 95 percent of small businesses are doomed to fail within five years. (Complete infographic below…)

And, this is BIG business. Sales and advertising companies and their executives know you better than you know yourself, it seems. They are playing with your emotions at every turn.
Most of the time, and if they are any good, they place emotional copy, triggers and ads in front their target audience to make you buy now, and think later. (…making a lot of money in the process, if done right).
However, when it comes to selling online – using the Internet, there is a specific sales and marketing strategy that works – every time. It’s based on emotion too, but used differently, and over time.
Review this 1 minute selling and sales strategy info-graphic. See if you agree.

(Answer: about 20%)

In January 2012, social networking giant Facebook reported that users spend an average of 10.5 billion total minutes per day (this doesn’t include mobile users.)
When most people think of using the Internet to promote business, they think of search engines like Google and Yahoo.
It may surprise you, however, to find that social media networks also have a great influence on customers and where they choose to take their business.
So what are the social media networks that small businesses use to increase customers and sales?
Hey everybody, this is exciting here. We’ve got one heck of an interview coming up with one of the top leaders in the industry.
