Now think about how many pages you went to before you found a site that gave you the information you needed. Stats show that 92% of people doing a search do not make it off of page 1, so your chances of being seen on the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th page are next to nothing. Fortunately for small to medium sized businesses this can be rectified. All it take is commitment from the business owner to want to increase their page ranking, and want to get more business. I help businesses everyday increase their online presence through a mixture of online marketing techniques. First, is making sure that you have a website. If you are a business today and don't have a website, you must not want to stay open much longer. In years past you didn't need a website to do business, but it's not the 80's or even the 90's anymore. It doesn't matter what you want or think about having an online presence, the truth is what do your customers think about it. 88% of all customers go online to look for a product or service before going into a store to buy it. That means 88% of your customers are looking for your product or service online, and if you aren't there, then they aren't coming to your location. Once you have a website the next thing is, "How do I get on page 1?" The answer is 2 parts. 1 is search engine marketing or pay per click advertising. This is where you pay each time someone clicks on your ad, and is taken to your website. This is done by a bid process. The 2nd way is search engine optimization, which means your site is naturally served up on page 1 because it is one of the most relevant sites that pertain to the keyword that was searched for. Keeping up with this is not something that a business owner can keep up with, and it's not something your brother-in-law can do for free, on the weekends for you. This needs to be done by a professional who knows what they are doing, and does it for a living. I would get a root canal from the guy who painted my home, so why would you trust your business to someone other than a professional? This could go on forever, but you get the idea of the need to be online, and be on page 1. If you have questions about how i can help you, please send me a response. Or if you just want to discuss it let me know. I want everyone who owns a business to understand the power of page 1, and what it takes to get there. http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/if-you-arent-page-1-online-search-then-people-arent-calling-you#comments http://www.sba.gov/crss/node/825861 Marketing & Advertising Wed, 16 Apr 2014 21:55:56 +0000 keith.black@chron.com 825861 at http://www.sba.gov threat of castration http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/discuss-popular-topics/marketing-advertising/threat-castration No one tells Ygritte I am yours and youre mine and gets away with it I recall Ygritte floating the threat of castration thus Jons betrayal has set his fire-haired ex on a private warpath. http://vk.com/watchgameofthronesse4ep3online Watch Game Of Thrones Season 4 Episode 3 Online http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/discuss-popular-topics/marketing-advertising/threat-castration#comments http://www.sba.gov/crss/node/826791 Marketing & Advertising Sun, 20 Apr 2014 20:24:48 +0000 jernermorris 826791 at http://www.sba.gov The Quiet Ones full movie download http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/quiet-ones-full-movie-download The Other Woman Movie Download Free http://theotherwomanmoviedownloadfree.wordpress.com/ Brick Mansions Full Movie Download http://brickmansionsmoviedownload.wordpress.com/ The Quiet Ones full movie download http://thequietonesmoviedownload.wordpress.com/ Download The Amazing Spider Man 2 Full Movie Free http://downloadtheamazingspiderman2movie.wordpress.com/ Download Transcendence full movie Free http://downloadtranscendencefullmovie.wordpress.com/ Revolver Rani Full Movie Download Free http://revolverranimoviedownload.wordpress.com/ The Other Woman Full Movie Download http://theotherwomanmoviedownload.wordpress.com/ Download Brick Mansions Movie Free http://downloadbrickmansionsmovie.wordpress.com/ The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Full Movie Download http://theamazingspiderman2moviedownload.wordpress.com/ Watch The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Full Movie HD http://watchtheamazingspiderman2fullmovie.wordpress.com/ Kaanchi Movie Download Free http://kanchimoviedownload.wordpress.com/ Revolver Rani Full Movie Download Free http://revolverranimoviedownload.wordpress.com/ http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/quiet-ones-full-movie-download#comments http://www.sba.gov/crss/node/826851 Marketing & Advertising Sun, 20 Apr 2014 21:27:46 +0000 brick99 826851 at http://www.sba.gov Break of Chain Game Of thrones Season 4 Episode 3 Coming up http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/break-chain-game-thrones-season-4-episode-3-coming Put on your best furs, polish the rings, and prepare yourself.

I remember having a site rank purely on meta tag data and links. Raking in 100's of leads a day was no problem as it was simple to rank for thousands of different keywords. Now you can rank for keywords, but ranking for multiple important keywords is almost impossible.

If you have employees, set-up a program that rewards them for coming up with great business marketing ideas. If you have a storefront or office that gets a lot of traffic, have a suggestion box where customers can offer their recommendations on what you might do to enhance business. If you are a single proprietor, seek out the advice of others. Organize your own brainstorming group with other business owners to help one another. Remember: no matter how big or small you are there is always a way to augment creative thinking in any business. 1. Listen! Listen! Listen! Have an open ear. Listen to what employees have to say. Listen to what your customers are telling you. Listen to what your business colleagues suggest. Listen to experts in your industry in regards to business marketing trends. Seek out the advice of a professional marketing consultant and listen to what he or she has to say. As Writer/Poet Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, “It is the province of knowledge to speak, and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen.” 2. Think About How To Market Differently Than Your Competition. Take a serious look at how your competition markets and then ask yourself and/or your staff: “How can we market ourselves different from the competition?” “What can we do differently to set us apart?” “What kinds of business marketing tools or measures can we use that our competition isn’t?” 3. Create A Physical Work Environment That Stimulates Creative Thinking. One of the best, easiest and most effective ways to achieve this is to hire a professional organizer. Individuals in this field are well versed on how to effectively organize. This includes knowing how to create an office or workplace environment to enhance creativity depending on a person’s habits and thinking process for stimulating thought. At no time in history has there been more advertising messages thrown at us on a daily basis than today. Therefore, to get people’s attention out of the box marketing is not merely important in doing business, but imperative. So don’t wait another minute, hour or day. Get to work now using these steps to begin beating out your competition with truly creative thinking, when it comes to marketing. The clock is ticking. http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/note-thinking-out-box#comments http://www.sba.gov/crss/node/810871 Marketing & Advertising Thu, 27 Mar 2014 06:05:09 +0000 JamesFCrissman 810871 at http://www.sba.gov What are your best practices for Facebook Ad campaigns for a local/small business? http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/what-are-your-best-practices-facebook-ad-campaigns-localsmall-business I'm kicking off a new Facebook Ad campaign for a local business and breaking my campaigns into two goals: 1) website clicks 2) page likes The CTR for website clicks is pretty expensive - about $2.50 - $3 per click and $4 CMP overall.

Nowadays the meaning of marketing is extremely sophisticated. A good modern definition of marketing must acknowledge that we buy things in far more complex ways than we did fifty years ago, even ten years ago. The internet and social media are major factors in this. Above all, marketing is a reflection of 'the market', and how the market buys and behaves, which especially entails people and society - much broader considerations than purely product and price. As the market evolves in sophistication, so does the way in which we understand what marketing actually is and what it means to conduct marketing well. Advertisement is defined as: "A notice or announcement in a public medium promoting a product, service or event, or publicizing a job vacancy."

The best endorsement of a product or service is from friends and family. The average Facebook user has 190 friends. One strategy I have seen work extremely well for many businesses is getting the customer to &quot;Check-In&quot;. If you offer the customer a 10% discount when they &quot;check-in&quot; that alone reaches an average of 190 possible new customers.
