Beware of tax-related phone scams

Even though it’s not your typical tax season you might have received a call or know someone that has received a call from the “IRS” saying you owe back taxes or you’ve been audited and owe money. This is a newer tactic based on older scams of the same kind; they are merely deviating from the script – but it is becoming more and more frequent. These scammers will ask you for your bank information to settle your tax debt for a certain amount. (Usually it’s not so large to raise suspicion.) Since November, it has been reported that over 25,000 people have been swindled out of their money out of fear of IRS levies and penalties. There are ways to combat these scammers and they require a level of vigilance on our end. […]

The Holidays and Safeguarding your Debit Card

The convenience of using a debit card is undeniable. It also helps you stay focused on managing your debt so you don’t run up your credit card balance. Debit cards can, however, become problematic because unlike credit cards, there are no protected measures in place to assist you in case your debit card gets compromised.

Why focusing on your target market is important

One common mistake business owners make is that they try to tackle the world when they don’t even need to. The focus should be on your niche. When business owners try to tackle more than who’s in their business’s niche in an attempt to untap a hidden market, they lose out on valuable time to market to your niche.

Certainly there are other ways a good social media campaign can complement any SEO program. […]

How to properly market to younger generations in a digital age

Diversifying your marketing strategy to the masses will help your business grow to lengths that you didn’t know were possible. One often overlooked area of marketing is marketing to younger generations, or as other people like to term it, millenials. Millenials can be a hidden niche market because they are more accustomed to taking on newer forms of technology. While traditional marketing aspects are still strong, marketing to millenials can take your business to the next level because they represent a large gap of personnel that is quickly using its youthful experience to influence business.
