Mark Your Calendars! Your “Editorial Calendars” that is.

Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay When you decided to start your business, it was likely that you needed to create a business plan. You needed to explain what your business was, what you wanted to achieve, and how you planned to achieve it. It is highly likely that you created an outline of that plan before acting on your strategy. It would be best if you approached your business’s social media in the same way. Enter: The Editorial Calendar.

Is your company's website accessible?

Accessibility in the Age of the Internet

It is highly likely that your place of business is accessible to those with disabilities, but is your website? Installing wider doors, ramps, and lower counters can help those visiting in person, but if your site doesn’t have some basic design features, you may be turning away customers and clients before they even have a chance to be your customers.

If You Build It…Your Website Is Not Like Field of Dreams

I frequently hear from professionals with business websites that they just aren’t seeing the value from it. When I ask them why they feel this way the response typically is because they don’t feel they are getting enough traffic to the site or conversions to leads. These comments come from professionals across a variety of industries. The belief they have is that a website is similar to a sign on a building. It’s reminiscent of one of the most memorable lines from the 1989 movie Field of Dreams, “If you build it, he will come.”
