Many owners of service businesses make the mistake of creating too complex and complicated a business strategy when they start. Rather than starting simply and proving their concepts, many entrepreneurs invest months that stretch into years building a convoluted business model.

When managing a company, one of the most important things to do is monitoring employee productivity and performance. It can rarely be guaranteed that employees are constantly working to their maximum productivity, as there is a strong possibility that they may relax when not monitored closely.

Online Branding in Today’s Market

Online branding or internet branding is essential in today’s ever-changing marketplace. Most business owners fail to realize the potential behind establishing a powerful brand name.

If anyone has the ability to explain his or her brand right from the moment a user logs onto your web page, the brand will have much more of an effect on the visitor because they instantly know what you are about, what your purpose is and what you are trying to convey. On the average, you have about 8 seconds to capture the visitor’s attention before they choose to stay or move on from your website. If you make most of these 8 seconds useful, users will not forget your brand and be more likely to come back to the site at a later date.

Fuzing SEO and Social Media Marketing

I have been arguing for a long time that SEO and Social Media Marketing are becoming the same thing. At least, they work together extremely well, or should.

Some of our new members wonder why the first thing we want to do for them is open up a bunch of social accounts. They picture hour on hour of wasted time wading through these sites looking for customers. But, luckily, that’s not the purpose at all!

Every month, Google alone receives over 31 billion searches which means that on average, Google receives 1 billion searches a day and that is 1,000,000,000 searches each and everyday on just Google alone. That amounts to over 40 million searches inside of one hour and just under a million searches a minute or rather 700,000 searches per minute. About 12,000 searches are conducted in one second and in the time it took me to compile this first paragraph, about two or three minutes, 3 million people have used the Google search engine.
