Google Plus finally pulls the plug, but what does this change mean for your business?
So you want to launch a podcast? Podcasting is useful in engaging and connecting with your audience on a more personal level than a blog. Plus, podcasting increases your website traffic and SEO just like blogging, or even more so, in some cases.
Whether you’re a college student deciding on a career path, a business owner trying to connect with potential customers, or are switching industries into marketing, some of the technical skills and specific vocabulary might seem like a foreign language to you.

Live video streaming is the real time transmission of an audio or video that is broadcasted across the internet and people with the sources of computers and smartphones can view them.
Social media isn’t as easy as, “If you build it, they will come.” Your tweets are scheduled, your Facebook has a nifty About Me section. You’ve even got some witty status updates, but no one is clicking. If you’re low on followers (or if you seem to be at a stand still), it may be time to rethink your strategy.

Was all that hard work for nothing? Yes. Slightly joking, but there are legitimate reasons why your content may not be getting shared with the social world.
Business owners often get going on their business and then think about marketing later. While we don’t advocate that approach, we understand how it happens. But when your business starts to grow (or doesn’t!) and you decide you want marketing, be sure you are fully prepared to commit, because marketing is a long-term relationship.
Digital marketing has become a need for any successful company. As this trend continues to grow, so does the level of digital marketing fraud. Sadly, scammers are taking advantage of small business owners capitalizing on trends such as SEO, paid search, and web development.
