When planning out how you’re going to pull your website together (and even after you already have it all together!) remember that the content on your site is absolutely one of the most important components. Consider this: Search engines like Google are out there scouring the web trying to find relevant, fresh, and substantial content with which to fill their searches. What does this mean for your business website? It's essential that you update your content, do it often, and keep it relevant to what your customers are looking for.

This is an update to "Twitter Newbie" dated 10/17/2012.

If you're a business ready to take the plunge into marketing on Twitter, the task may seem daunting. Starting out, each follower counts in your task to grow your following and begin interacting with your target audience. Here's a bit of advice for those just starting: understand that it's going to take some time -keep trying and it will pay off. For businesses marketing online, as they all should be, Twitter is a great tool to use. It helps to get your name out there and make your postings visible to more and more people. Some people are even nice enough to share newsletters of yours, sales that you have going on, etc. with their own followers to give you a little extra boost. It's a great networking tool.

This is an update to "Getting Bloggy" dated 10/10/2012.

It seems like everyone has a blog. Apparently, now I am also included in the everyone." The blog that started my blogging obsession 8 years ago was a DIY home renovation/design blog that I loved and my husband hated because of all the extra work (remarkable and innovative ideas) that then filled up his Sundays. Lucky for him, once I popped into the blogging world, I discovered an internet Mecca. This is what business owners have found to be the most valuable in recent years. There are millions of people commenting, entering prize giveaways, reading, and BUYING because of these blogs. It is literally another civilization that you can, and I often do, get lost in for days. Why does this matter to you as a business owner?

When planning out how you’re going to pull your website together (and even after you already have it all together!) remember something very important, the content on your site is absolutely one of the most important components.  I’m not going to pretend that all of you know what SEO means, because I didn’t know what it meant before either.  SEO is search engine optimization.  Basically, search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. are out there scouring the web trying to find some relevant, fresh, and substantial content to fill their searches with.  What does this mean for your business website? UPDATE YOUR CONTENT, do it often, and keep it relevant to what your customers are looking for.

Ok, so not so spooky really.  It’s Halloween which makes me, inevitably, think of one thing: TWO MONTHS OF MAJOR HOLIDAYS START NOW.  What does that mean for your business? Sales! Promotions! Deals!  This is the time of year where everyone decides to splurge a bit while trying to save a buck.  This is the perfect time of year to hammer out details for a great seasonal deal.  If you haven’t even been considering one yet, it’s definitely not too late.  Most sales don’t start till the end of next month anyway.  You’ve still got time!
