What No One Wants to Tell You About Email Marketing
Do you get the impression that people hate email marketing? If you ask around, you’ll probably find a large percentage of people who say they don’t like it at all. I’d probably say that too. But then I check my email and…what’s that? 20% off everything at Bloomies? Groupon has a great deal for my favorite restaurant? It’s Cyber Monday and the deals are insane? I check my email on my smartphone when I’m in a store and…there’s a 20% off coupon!
6 Twitter Mistakes Every Business Owners Should Avoid

Dramatically Increasing Your Blog Visitors
Blogging is an extremely effective way of getting your word out online. Blogs teach new things and compel readers to read and leave comments on the content. They also share what they have read. It’s time to increase your readers.
Using Thought Provocation to Generate Leads
When it comes to generating leads, you can follow more of a formula than you think. It isn’t always easy; however, if you turn the thinking around, you’ll achieve good results. The key is thought provocation. Make them want it.
“It’s always scary changing your website even when you know you need an update. Lots of times you feel like you are on an island and the people developing your website could care less if they respond to your concerns or not. Not only did Lindsay and her staff stay in constant contact with me through the entire process, they responded immediately to each question, and improved on my own ideas for the site. They thought of things that I would have never considered and have also taken my haphazard social media postings and formed a consistent strategy that is sure to blow the doors off anything I have done before. I feel like I have gotten many times over my money’s worth already. Thanks Lindsay and team!”

Just wanted to take a minute to thank Celebrity Sites. Making that first impression of what our business is about is very important.
Celebrity Sites has done more in just a couple of months than we did in the last 6 years which was nothing because we tried different things but were just were not on track. You knew where to start and how to get there in lighting speed. You guys not only listened to our ideas but gave some great ideas. Whenever we needed to talk to you, you were right there, by email or phone – you name it, you responded. We are so excited every day to see Larry’s Big Idea take shape. The website is second to none thanks to Lindsay and is improving weekly. The ideas that Jack and Nick come up with at each meeting are awesome.
If anyone out there is considering launching their business to just the next level forget it. Get in the elevator with Celebrity Sites and they will take you to the top floor (Penthouse). Stay tuned for more!
Like any vehicle, it will run smoothly if
and only if
1) the right fuel is used, 2) you make it a priority to maintain it, 3) and you have a great mechanic! As a business owner, having your team in place is critical to success. I was happy with my original website; giving birth to it was a process. But after a while, as it grows so do your needs. You change or your brand changes. It was not a coincidence that I met Lindsay Dicks from Celebrity Sites; it was time…call it synchronicity at work. I had been rethinking my website and needed to delegate more of what I was choosing not to do regarding social media and web maintenance. I have never been so impressed by their professionalism, dedication or follow-through. They are there at a moments notice to work through my questions, my ideas or concerns. I give them straight A pluses. They have me for LIFE.
