SEO and SMM Alerts- 2/3/12 Edition

Posted Friday, February 3rd, 2012 by

 

As you probably know, I am one of two girls in my family. Being the youngest, and by that point my mother telling my father there was no possible chance he would have a son, I became sort of a tomboy growing up. I know- CLEARLY difficult to image now looking at the outer “girlie-girl” that I am, but I assure you that I shopped in the boys department until about age 15 when I made the Varsity cheerleading squad…. My mother was so proud for multiple reasons….

Although I may look like a fashionista- my inner core (well, despite the emotional breakdowns that women have for really no apparent reason at all- ask Eric, he loves them :) ) is sports and cars…. No, no, not camping- don’t worry I’m not that boy-ish :)

But I DO love my sports… and cars. In fact on the way home the other day I speeded (yes, Dad, speeded) up so I could specifically look at the beautiful white Ferrari 458 in front of me. I thought about how my conversation with an officer might go if I got pulled over; “Sorry Officer that I was driving like I just left the Rolex 24- but I was speeding to catch the 458 in front of me…”

Yes- I doubt he would have found the humor in my excuse.

But like cars, I love sports… and although I do prefer college football (Go Gators!) to the NFL, I still love football.

And what’s the weekend?! The Super Bowl!! Now- although I care little who wins because the Bucs haven’t won a Super Bowl since 2002, I am, like most, excited by the Super Bowl ads…

But here is my thought about those famous Super Bowl ads. Why, only one day out of the year, does everyone focus on marketing?  Only one day. Are we doing that in our businesses? Unfortunately- I know that I am guilty of that. I am too focused on running the business (or playing the game) and slack on my marketing… which I shouldn’t.

So don’t let your business be like the Super Bowl- where you’re only marketing on one big day a year!

Enjoy the alerts… and the game! :)

kesseaIn the 14 years I’ve owned businesses, I’ve worked with several IT and web designers. Never has the process been as easy and seamless as it has with CelebritySites. Not once have I entered into a new technology relationship without the fear similar to that of when an entrepenuer makes the dreaded decision to change their phone company; that panic that lives deep down inside that can only grow from past experience. I’m ecstatic to say, we have already moved far beyond any other company I’ve worked with at this stage of the game. My only regret, I didn’t make this commitment sooner; saving myself a lot of time, stress, and lets be honest- money! Thank you Lindsay for all your support, your passion, and your investment in me. -Kessea Moses AKA: Master Bobby Splinter’s Mutant Ninja Turtle
 
“Thanks a lot for such a good work. Probably for you it was something that you just do all the time, but after I had so many unfortunate dealings with three of your predecessors and never felt quite satisfied, I can really appreciate and thank you for what you are doing with my new site.” -Jose Gomez
 
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. - Sallie Felton, Life Coach/Transition Specialist, International Talk Radio Host #1 Best Selling Author, IF I’M SO SMART, WHY CAN’T I GET RID OF THIS CLUTTER?
 
Lindsay is the best Web marketer in the world. Our website is incredible…! -Don Bergis
 
CNBC Contacted me because of Celebrity Sites®! I just wanted to take a moment to say WOW! My last website took many years and many versions to never quite get what I wanted. In less than 30 days you guys designed and built a brand new website that I love and now, not even 60 days since it’s been live, I’m starting to get calls from television producers! Just last week I got a call from CNBC because they were searching for financial experts to feature on a new show they are launching and they found me thanks to my new website. This is incredible, thanks so much for the great experience. Anyone who isn’t taking advantage of your unique expertise of Celebrity Branding business people online is missing the boat in many ways! - Brian Fricke, Owner, President
