Does Blogging Really Matter?

Posted by | Marketing, Uncategorized | No Comments

In a word: yes.

Blogging can significantly impact your business’s bottom line. Perhaps you’re a dedicated blogger and already know how much it has worked to increase traffic, qualified leads and boost sales. Or it’s possible that you’re like a good many business owners who had good intentions of keeping your blog current, posted initially when your site (re)launched and then quickly forgot that you even have a blog. If you’re part of the latter group (or just curious), this post is for you. Read More

A beautifully designed website with engaging content is a winning combination. But what’s one thing that can negatively effect even the best design? Poorly chosen stock photos.

We’ve only just met, but I’m pretty sure I know that you know that repeat business is super important to your financial well-being. You’ve heard of that 80/20 rule, right? Pareto and his peas, my friend. Plus, you can crunch your own numbers, but I’ve read that it costs anywhere from 4-10 times as much for customer acquisition versus customer retention. Repeat business not only plays a major role in your business success, it’s also a key indicator of how well your website is performing. If you’re not seeing repeat activity on your site, you need to make some changes—and fast. Here are 5 tactics to earn repeat business through your website.

But wouldn’t it be better for your general health and wellness if you employed these strategies year-round? After all, practice makes perfect.

Know Your Limits

This is true on so many levels from the number of last minute tasks you agree to take on to the consumption of Jingle Juice cocktails. Keep yourself feeling sound of mind and body by knowing your limits and stick to it. Taking on too much in a day can leave you feeling spread thin and unable to really focus on the tasks that matter, regardless of the time of year. So can that one last round. Read More
