Why Having Important Backlinks Is Just Like Networking

Obtaining backlinks is an important part of building out your SEO strategy. When you have a fair number of backlinks from reputable sites, it signals to Google that your site is reputable, too.

Who Is The Real Hero?

Some time ago, I posted a poll on my social media page asking business owners “Who is the hero of your business? You or your customer?” It surprised me that half of those who participated did not vouch for the latter.

For the longest time, we’ve been so accustomed to seeing “About Us” sections on websites reading things like “our company has been the industry’s pioneer,” or “we are committed to providing only the best,” or “our product solves problems and reduces costs.” Although there may be truth to all these, shining the spot light on your company instead of your customers is a huge mistake. You can tell these stories with as much zeal and confidence as you’d like, but it will not make customers like or trust you.

Why Even Your Small Business Needs a Responsive Website

Responsive websites are a necessity in today’s digital marketplace. That isn’t surprising when statistics state that 51% of time spent online in most countries, took place from a mobile device, rather than a personal computer. Your website should be mobile-friendly and responsive any time a user visits. Otherwise, you’re turning business away at the first click.
