Get a Tax Benefit for your Advertising Before the End of the Year

The end of the year is approaching quickly…as such, many businesses are either getting ready for a break, or finishing up their end of year plans gearing up for next year- which includes all the finances and organizing their taxes. It’s undoubtedly a busy time of year as businesses look for tax deductible items they can write off. One tax deductible item several business owners do not know about is that some expenses they pay for advertising or marketing can be written off. This includes, but not limited to website design, logo design, brochures, and business cards, to name a few. […]

Website Wow Factor Leads to Success

You often hear about your website needing a “Wow” factor. It sounds good in principle, but what does it really mean. This factor refers to not only a great looking website, but what it does.

Google Scam Blog (Revisited) – Update

In August, we talked about being extremely careful when fielding phone calls from people from “Google”. It was common practice for these scammers to go under the guise of Google and give you a shpeel about not ranking high in their search engines and giving them your credit card numbers. This is where the scam gets a little more dangerous – they’re now using Yahoo, Bing, Facebook, and other social media avenues to further their cause. As we become a little more astute to the scammers using Google’s name, their hope is that using a different company will throw you off just enough. Here are some items to put into perspective from 2013: […]

Millenial Marketing: Understanding what we don’t really know

Millenial Marketing: Understanding what we don’t really know Millenials. You think you know who they are and how to market to them, but what you think you know may not be the whole truth.

3 Ways to Change Your Customer’s Behavior

When people talk about change, you generally get two responses: a look of shock and trepidation, or you get a look of excitement.

Why you should not “unsubscribe” to SPAM.

It’s amazing what you find in our inbox. Free pills, low-cost cigars, a millionaire to marry – you get anything and everything today. While some of these offers are enticing, they come at a cost. More than likely you have clicked on one of these emails and tried to “unsubscribe” from them. You feel good about it for a day or two, but then the flood of other spam emails come in – and you start getting hit with viruses. This is typical of unsubscribing to such emails. It’s okay to unsubscribe to sites that are reputable like ESPN or Walmart, but unsubscribing to sites that “randomly” email you isn’t a good idea. In fact, it’s just not a good idea not to open up the email. […]

Why “HTTPS” is the Future of Websites

Every website’s end user experience is different.. There are varying levels of user experience you want to achieve whether you’re in eCommerce or you simply have a blog.

Three Ways to Reduce Your Bounce Rate

Anyone who has Google Analytics knows that the bounce rate is often a pretty low number. The bounce rate refers to the rate of website viewers who view a landing page (it doesn’t matter what page) and then leave the site. You can look at the numbers as a whole or you can break it down page by page. In any case, the number may not be to your liking. It’s a common occurrence, but there are ways you can improve your bounce rate by changing a few minor details on your website. […]
