  1. Three ways towards a good blogging habit

    Have you ever sat there wondering just where the heck to get started? Getting more and more stressed and feeling more inadequate by the minute. I know I have.

  2. Creating personas for products, customer service and marketing

  7. Small business should be listed on Google Places

    In spite of the slight confusion and frustration involved with getting listed on Google Places, it is of benefit to any small business. The results are often both immediate and astonishing. Only yesterday, one of our clients exclaimed during a follow-up call that persuading her to set up her Google accounts and profiles was more than worth the 30 minutes or so it […]

  8. Marketing appeal as part of your content strategy

    As small businesses, we’re good at understanding why our products and services are right for our audience, but that doesn’t always translate to our content, which means that we’re missing out on marketing appeal.
