Is your business on an empty street?

20120629-073556.jpg You can get up each day and go to work. If no one calls or comes into you business you are not getting far. If someone in your local area is looming for you and can’t find you again no business. No life.
So each day get up with a purpose. Decide it is going to work today. In my life I worked very hard for a long time 7 years. There were times I thought it was going to work and others I just wanted to give up. It was not until a major life change that I took a step back and let it happen. Now we are on a great road work is coming and I have people to help. Sometimes we just push too hard and get in our own way.
So get out of the way, make your business what you want it to be.
Find your path, find the way to make it work for you.
Have a peaceful day. I am going to start my yoga.

Day by day we can only do what we can do!

20120624-163555.jpgYes, it has been a while. A lot has happened, life has changed. But we must get back up on that horse.

It is a balancing act!
How do I run my business and do the things I need to do to promote it. Well you just need to find the time. Sometimes it is in the morning. That worked for me for a while, other times is is sitting in a Resturant waiting for food. Create content for your web site that has the keywords you need. Oh ya the keyword density should be 1.8. No more or Google will not rate you well.
Make sure you stick to good SEO practices. There are a ton of articles online read a few of them. Remember on the Internet it is alway good to get a few opinions. You should never trust just one find the truth for you and you will be better for it.
Creating content for you website is the best way to bring traffic and establish you as an authority in your field. Make a difference in you business today. Spend sometime talking about what you know. And you will get people to listen.
Have a peaceful afternoon. I am going to eat my dinner.

Push through the fog.

20120608-065229.jpg Some days are harder than others. Just to keep thing going.
If you are not going to keep marketing you company the at some point things are going to just stop.
Just do it as the saying goes. Check your website, read others, like posts, comment on posts where there is a good conversation going on. That will introduce you to many more real people. You must let visitors know you are there. Let them find you. I can give you tips forever but if you don’t use them, are you helping yourself?
Everyday do something, it adds up over time. But you must start.
Have a peaceful day.

Blue skies, a sign of calm

20120605-065743.jpgBlue skies in the distances after rainy days. A sign of clearing. No matter how you have faired in this Great Resession you will live to the next day. We need to look at our tasks ahead and mark them off one by one. As we see progress everything will become more clear.
It is clear to me that to I must find ways to reach out. To bring people and businesses together.
Content is king on the Internet. Find what you have to say. What is important to you? Tell the world! Do it now. Start today.
If you love your work then talk about it the way you do to your family and friends. What do you say when someone asks, What do you do?
Start there.
Also get help when you need it. When a pipe breaks in your house you call a Plummer. So of you need help with your web site find support. Find someone that will listen to your needs and come up with real solutions. That gives you options allows you to learn, grow.
If they feel like the right thing then do it, if not run. Find someone that gives you options and educates to allow you to make informed decisions.
Take the first steps. The second will be easier.
Have a peaceful day.

Internet Marketing Tonight at Fuel in GB

20120604-071141.jpg Today is the day to come together and work on your web site. Talk to me and others in your community about supporting your site and business. We will meet at Fuel Coffee Shop in Great Barrington MA tonight from 5 to 7 to talk about Internet marketing, WordPress and all things Internet. 

We will work in a group to find the best ways to get more information out about your company and find ways that we can help each other to grow our buisnesses.

Let us come together as a group to learn and support.

I look forward to seeing all of you there. Tonight!

A sunny day and a new month!

20120601-063836.jpg It is a beautiful morning, a new month and a great time to start blogging. I know what you are thinking. I can't write, I don't gave the time, I don't know what to say!
Well then just stay in bed and let the world pass you by.
Get over yourself and find a way that works for you. Find a time, a tool.
For me the morning works best. If you have noticed I get my inspiration from looking out the window and seeing what is going on. Then I take a picture with my phone. Then use the IPhone WordPress app to make the post. It forces me to be short and use the least amount of words. I get tired of typing with my finger.
Think about you product or service. What questions do people ask you?
What are your answers?
Those are great posts! They will have lots of keywords and they will be what people need to hear. Don't worry about anything else just do it. Or find a service like ours to do it for you. But you have to do it or your web site is just not going to be seen.
Remember Monday nights 5 to 7 at Fuel in Great Barrington we are meeting to talk Internet Marketing. Get help and support from us and friends going through the same thing you are.
See you Monday!
Have a peaceful day and great weekend.
Bob
