Leverage the right talent for your website

Small companies try to keep as much of the work in house as they can, which is totally understandable, since anything a company can’t do needs to be outsourced and there is a cost to that.

There are some things I’m very good at. But like most people I have an unspoken kryptonite… and guess what I’m going to tell you. I break out in a sweat when I have to Fedex/UPS something to someone. Lol. It’s as simple as that unfortunately. Read more

Use it or lose it, good website practices

So you had a gorgeous website built and it’s been SEO-itized and form-ified, and even landing page-ilized. You’d think the hard part is over, but really it’s just beginning.

  2. Work that backend. SEO keywords will have to be adjusted to make sure you are getting the appropriate response to your business
  3. Follow-up. Follow through is key. Answer questions in a professional and timely manner.
