Scam Alert

 



ATTENTION!

Important information: It has become clear that a reminder is needed regarding hosting and domain renewals. Please do not under any circumstances pay anyone for service renewals except me. Anything coming from anyone else is NOT me and is a SCAM!

Domain expiration dates are public information and anyone can send you a letter to mislead you into paying them instead of me. Save yourself a big headache and contact me if you are unsure of anything your receive via calls, mail, or email. 

I send the following email reminder after the development of every website and also by mail for every service renewal.
 
It is common to be the target of a scam when you own a website, so if you get a renewal letter, call, text, or email from anyone else other than myself or GoDaddy ignore it or contact me before agreeing to anything. Especially if your services are not expiring soon. There are scammers out there who will attempt to use this tactic to trick you into losing your domain name to a reseller or even a competitor. If you would like to verify a renewal letter email me to verify if it’s legitimate. Avoiding this scam will save you many headaches in the future.
 
Thank you for your business, I appreciate your attention to this reminder.
Wishing you and your business great success! :)

What is online reputation management?

 


What is online reputation management?

Reputation management comprises all business activities undertaken to shape customers' opinions of a company based on its online presence. Your company's online reputation is largely the result of how today's most-used websites – Google, Facebook and more – present your company. As such, SEO and properly handling negative reviews are part and parcel of reputation management.

While similar in some ways to public relations (PR), reputation management is less focused on journalistic coverage and more focused on your overall online presence. For example, your PR firm will pitch stories about your company to leading publications, while your reputation management firm will focus on your online reviews, paid content, and SEO. Both your PR firm and reputation management firm may assist you with social media management.

Why is managing your online reputation important?

Warren Buffet once said, "It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently." This quote, from one of the most successful entrepreneurs of all time, elucidates the importance of managing your reputation.

That's because a strong online reputation helps to place your company higher in search engine results pages (SERPs). Higher SERP rankings mean exposure to more potential customers, thus increasing your revenue.

Online reputation management also helps to improve the impression that potential customers may have of you from looking at your reviews on Google, Yelp and other listing sites. A trustworthy reputation management team will know how to meaningfully respond to all your reviews, whether positive or negative. How you react to reviews can affect how potential customers perceive you and whether they ultimately choose to buy from you.

What impacts your online reputation?

Among the many factors contributing to your company's online reputation are its:

  • Social media presence. Forging a positive reputation for your brand on social media begins with developing an interesting, meaningful social media presence, but it doesn't stop there. You should also use your social media pages to consistently post interesting content and communicate with your customers. Some social media sites also have review sections that your reputation management team should oversee.

  • SEO. Your online brand's reputation is, loosely speaking, part of its search engine rankings. Put another way, if Google ranks your brand lower than others, then Google's algorithm likely doesn't perceive your brand as reputable. And given that household-name companies often dominate the first and second pages of navigational and informational web searches, the lower your company ranks, the less trustworthy it may appear.

  • Online reviews. Even if you perfect your SEO so that you always appear within the first pages of web searches, your online reputation can still suffer if you have lots of negative reviews. It can suffer even if you have just a few negative reviews. As stated earlier, responding to negative reviews with care, empathy and an interest in open communication can help revive your reputation. That said, don't cram your online pages with fake positive reviews – discerning customers can tell.

The digital era provides a more level playing field for young, smaller companies that can leverage the social media platforms to gain more website traffic. On the other hand, failure to create a digital presence can jeopardize a company's chances to compete effectively.

How search engines impact your online reputation

Google has a market share of 70% and 90% on desktop and mobile/tablets, respectively. There are about 65,427 Google searches per second, or 5.6 billion searches per day, which means that approximately 75% of world population, per capita, makes at least one Google search every day.

These online searches can be about anything, including a company's business, partners, management and so on. Whenever someone searches about a company's name, product or management, a set of SERPs appears. The information contained on the first page will tell a story about the company. If there are positive links, then people researching are more likely to assume that the company is trustworthy, while any negative links can potentially raise doubts and erode trust. 

Generally, the information consumers find will have an anchoring bias, which can influence their decision-making process. In other words, internet users will place greater importance on what they read on page 1. If a positive search result becomes an anchor, it will be beneficial for the company. However, if it is negative, then it will likely harm the reputation of an individual or detract from the perception of the business.

It is important to note that most people have a bias known as the "isolation effect" or the Von Restorff effect, in which if there were just one negative result among a slew of positive results, the negative result is more often remembered than the positive one. Therefore, it's imperative to manage the first page of search results so they display the most representative digital assets.

How to repair a damaged reputation

Negative reviews or search results often originate from dissatisfied customers, disgruntled former employees, or mischievous competitors. These reviews are typically available on online review sites such as Glassdoor, Avvo, and Yelp and social media websites, including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Defamatory content may also be found through blogs of online aggregator websites, including Forbes and Reddit. The negative results can appear from past or current allegations against the company or specific members of the executive management team. The company could be named in an allegation without being at fault or have been found innocent of charges, but older website links with select keywords continue to appear and resurface.

There are a number of strategies to repair a digital reputation. Dedicated internal team members may not have the knowledge to address these issues. Depending on the situation, expertise offered by professional advisers may be required to suppress the negative search results, and where possible, remove the content.

For example, direct negotiation with publishers or managers of domain authority to hide the content from search engines often yields limited results relative to experts with an understanding of the legal ramifications. Building content that reflects the mission, vision and values of the business is helpful when addressing short-term issues or deploying a long-term strategy.

The last one is the most important defense because it is fundamental to counteracting negative reviews. To do this, the company should build its own website, create authentic social media profiles and share original content. If a negative search result appears on the first page, the company should increase its efforts by posting timely technical content that will shift the ranking of the negative result to the next page. It is imperative to monitor digital presence as it continuously changes and manage the negative results by using appropriate SEO tools. 

Understanding online reputation management assets

The most obvious online reputation management asset is the content on the company's website. When someone searches for the company or its brand name on Google, the first link, in most cases, is the company's website. Moreover, Google also appears in certain organic site links for free when the algorithms have clarity on the architecture of the website. This will direct the information consumer to the most relevant company website subpage. Therefore, it is important to have relevant content on these subpages. Meta tags and meta descriptions are also important for organic search engine optimization.

There are a number of inorganic methods in which a company acquires ORM assets, including managed assets (social media profiles and their content), influential assets (information aggregators such as Wikipedia), earned assets (positive news articles in media and blogs), and paid assets (advertisements on Google search pages).

Managing online reputation management assets

All types of ORM assets should be managed together rather than separately to improve your ranking on Google's desktop and mobile algorithms. However, the assets that are managed in-house by the company (i.e., the company's own website and managed assets) should be improved on an ongoing basis and optimized when first deployed. Google and other search engines will automatically investigate some important components – such as URL, location of business, keyword strength, site encryption and important tags – from the website and social media handles, which provides more reason for managing these assets first.

After looking at these components, the most important consideration is whether the company is publishing engaging content. A website with images, videos and infographics to complement authentic text will generate more traffic, as these images would often appear on the first page of SERPs. Some other ways for a link to receive a higher ranking on search engines include publishing news with a hyperlink to third-party news websites, answering frequently asked questions, and adding jargon-free content with keywords that might commonly be used by the consumer.

As far as manageable assets are concerned, social media content should always be linked back to the company's website to improve its visibility. This also improves social media appearances on search engine results. Social media platforms often encourage user engagement because they improve the quality of backlinks on SERPs. Successful strategies on one social media channel may not correspond to another. Understanding the nuances of each platform is critical. For example, a video link from YouTube shared on Facebook will receive less engagement and views relative to the video file being uploaded directly into Facebook.

With earned assets, it is important to have a public relations or reputation expert professionals that manage digital content published on trade publications, newspapers, or broadcast stations. This team should be dynamic and attentive to displacing negative results by strategizing, making tactical decisions, and continuously monitoring the company's reputation. Finally, paid assets attract traffic to the website, with links on SERPs receiving the highest ranks possible.

A negative result on a search engine can have a damaging effect on a company, while a positive result can enhance its profile significantly. We don't get a second chance to make a first impression. Therefore, it is vitally important that a company manage its digital reputation assets seriously and carefully before it's too late to salvage its reputation.

Comment on Facebook as your business page

 



A client asked me the other day... How do I like or comment on a post as my business page and not as my personal profile? Good question! In this case, the post was positive feedback about his business and it just makes sense to respond as your page. This is something that we should think about not only for your likes but your comments and shares as well. The solution is easy, but not clear to see. All you need to do is click on this tiny profile picture in the lower right-hand corner and change it from your profile to your page, then proceed with the action you would like to make. Easy peasy!

How do I communicate my website updates with my developer?



Clients often feel like they don't know the "right language" to talk with their website developer. I try my best to make you feel understood and to portray information to you in a way anyone can understand. 

When completing projects such as a website update it is important for the website developer to execute their ideas in a way your website visitors will benefit from. This can usually be done in writing by email, but there are times when a photo is better. Screenshots of the area you are referring to can be very helpful to show the place on your website where you want to make an update. Being able to add notes to a screenshot can be even better to be able to add your comments and arrows to the exact place you are referring too, to make things crystal clear. 

There's a little free program that I have been using for years for when I need to share ideas or information with a client. It's called Tiny Take and it's basically a glorified screen capturing program with extra bells and whistles that can make things easier. 

All you need to do is download and install it from www.TinyTake.com and install the program.


How it works...

1. Open the screen you want to share with me or anyone.
2. Open the Tiny Take
3. Hover over the green "capture" button.
4. Then click on the "Capture Reign" in the drop-down
5. Click and drag over the screen area that you want to share.
6. Then click on the "T with the arrow" in the toolbar and drag it to the area you want to make a comment on and type your suggestion.
7. You don't even need to save this image. Just go to "more" at the top right and choose "Copy to Clipboard"
8. Then open a compose window in your email program and paste this into the body of your message and send it to anyone you need to.
It's so easy, and such a time saver that can be used for all kinds of things.

I like to put the icon on my taskbar so it's easy to get to.

Enjoy!

How to Create an Invoice so you can get PAID!

 

Invoicing customers for your products and services is part of doing business. Here's how to create an invoice to give to your clients.

  • An invoice is an itemized document that lists all work completed for a client during a period along with each service’s price.
  • An invoice also contains contact information, payment terms and sometimes other notes.
  • To create an invoice, make space for a header, provide a detailed itemized table and include footnotes at the bottom if needed.
  • This article is for business owners who want to know how to create an invoice for completed work.

If you’re familiar with the basics of small business accounting, then you know that signing a new client doesn’t mean you’ll get their cash right away. If anything, you might have to wait several weeks or months before the money in your company’s accounts receivable hits your business’s cash account. And if you don’t send invoices for your work, you might never get that money.

Neglecting to send invoices can delay your clients’ payments since, often, clients need to receive invoices to trigger their payment processes. Since your clients likely record invoices in accounts payable upon receipt and pay according to their in-house pay schedule, your clients may miss or ignore payments without invoices to trigger their pay processes. Fortunately, sending invoices is easy. Below, we’ll walk you through how to create an invoice.

What is an invoice?

An invoice is an itemized document listing and detailing the prices of all products and services a client has purchased from your company during a given period. Once your client receives your invoice, they must pay the invoice within the period specified in your terms and conditions.

Without invoices, small businesses like yours would likely have a far tougher time pursuing client payments and receiving them on time. Invoices also double as records of your work for a client, and this record can be useful for accounting purposes, renegotiating terms with a client or even if you’re facing an IRS audit. Your clients can likewise use invoices for recordkeeping and accounting.

Key takeaway: An invoice is an itemized document containing all work you performed for a client during a period alongside the prices you’re charging for each line item.

What is included on an invoice?

You should include the following in your invoices:

  • The date of the invoice
  • The name, address, phone number and email address of both your company and your client
  • A unique invoice number or identifier
  • Payment terms such as net 30 or a specific payment deadline
  • An itemized list with a unit price, quantity and total price for each item
  • A clearly started total invoice value

Key takeaway: An invoice contains the business basics of your completed work for a client alongside payment terms.

How to create an invoice

It’s one thing to know what you should include in your invoice, but it’s another to present this information in a manner that your clients can easily understand and act upon. You can make sure your invoice is fully comprehensible by taking the following steps:

1. Add a header

Your invoice should begin with a header that includes the invoice date alongside contact information for both your company and your client. Often, your business information will be on the left-hand side and that of your client will be on the right-hand side, but sometimes, your information can go atop your client’s.

2. Designate an invoice number or identifier

If the invoice you’re sending is your first for a client, you can include “Invoice #0001” in your header (the extra zeros in the number prevent spacing changes if you reach thousands of invoices). Alternatively, you can set an identifier related to the service period, such as “Invoice #2021Q1” or “Invoice #FEB2021.” Even if your invoice identifier specifies the period that your invoice covers, you should include an exact invoice date alongside the identifier as well.

3. Insert your itemized table

The core of your invoice is your itemized table of services and prices. Here, you’ll list each item and its quantity, rate per unit (which can be a price per item or an hourly rate) and total cost. At the bottom right of the table, you’ll add each line item’s cost and record the sum as your invoice’s total value. You should either make sure this number is bolded or list it elsewhere as the total due in a large, obvious font. In some cases, you’ll need to charge taxes as well.

In your itemized table, you can also include the date or timeframe in which each line item was provided and detail what the indicated service encompasses. Doing so can help make your work and pricing more transparent to your client and possibly encourage faster payment. You can also facilitate payment by including more than one itemized table. For example, if you are providing services to your client both within their office and off-site, you can create one itemized table for each location.

4. Add footnotes

Often, invoices are self-explanatory lists of services, quantities and prices, but sometimes, they can’t tell the whole picture. For example, it might not be immediately evident that you’re applying a discount to one of your line items. To clarify this discount, add an explanatory footnote at the bottom of your invoice. This way, your client knows that future invoices may display higher rates for the same work. If your invoice doesn’t require clarifying footnotes, you can still add a thank-you note – a little gratitude can go a long way.

Key takeaway: To create an invoice, start with a header, decide on a unique invoice identifier, fill out your itemized table and leave footnotes as needed.

Sample invoice

Now that you know how invoices work, it may be helpful to see one in action. That’s why we’ve provided an example below:

February 26, 2020                                                                        INVOICE #FEB2021

How to make a website pay for its self?

 How to make a website pay for its self?


The question you should really be asking yourself is... Can you afford NOT to have a website? There are SO many ways to answer this question. A website these days is an essential tool to increase business. Even if you are a small business, wouldn't you like a bigger piece of the market that your major competitors are getting?  Why limit yourself, when you can achieve respect by placing your business on the same level as those who have already established recognition in your field.
I'm all about creating new jobs locally, but let's face it... small businesses often cannot afford to employ a whole team of staff. A website can assist like an "employee" for your business that can replace many of your other expenses, which will surely increase your profits! I compiled this list of ways to make your website pay for itself in a very short amount of time. This ensures that your website will become worth your investment every day.
1.  Your website can be your most RELIABLE and CHEAPEST employee you will ever have! A website is available to your customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! A website can't take extended breaks, doesn't need health insurance or liability, it won't take sick leave or in the worst case scenario... steal from you!
2.  Your website can replace or lighten the duties of a receptionist, by allowing customers to make an appointment or meeting online.
3. Your website can lighten the workload of a manager by offering job applications online. Submissions can be directly emailed to you instantly.
4. Your website can bypass a multitude of customer service issues by answering most asked questions on a Frequently Asked Questions page. It can display the best contact information to reach those who can assist them with the assistance they are looking for. By turning your website into a self-serve resource, it saves hours of time and provides a huge boost in customer satisfaction.
5. Your website can eliminate the need for sales associates if you can sustain your business entirely online. By providing products and services online your overhead costs are considerably lower. Lower prices equals increased profits. That's a no-brainer!
6. Your website can place your business side-by-side with your competitors online, so you can be on the same level as they are, giving you the extra edge you need to succeed.
7.  Now days, customers are more likely to Google a business than to turn to a huge phone book. If you are online, is there really any need to pay for a listing in the Yellowpages? Probably not.
8.  Promoting yourself on a Facebook Fan page or other local online classifieds reduces the need to advertise in radio or print ads. By reaching an audience that isn't already saturated by your ads, you will gain a new type of customer, and we all know that gaining a new customer is more difficult than selling to an existing customer.
9.  Did you know that there's a large number of online customers with accessibility needs? People who are elderly or homebound, appreciate ordering items online. Often times they are looking for businesses that can make their lives easier.
10.  Have you ever tried to talk to someone who doesn't speak your language? It can be very challenging for both the business owner and the customer. When an online consumer visits your website your store is translated automatically, so you don't have to have someone on staff for every language imaginable. That would not be feasible anyway.
11.  If you have a website you can offer visitors to subscribe to a newsletter. By collecting email addresses you can connect with your customers by email as often as you want, to keep them updated on sales and promotions. If your customer leaves your "brick and mortar store" you might not ever see them again.
12.  If you have a business that can offer a membership to relevant products or services you can earn years of income from satisfied customers. Online memberships are excellent impulse sales. Customers who are out running errands are often rushed and decline such offers.
13.  I offer an online shopping cart plan that eliminates bounced checks and decreases the need for customers calling to inquire about their order status. My shopping cart service can track inventory, sends automatic customized emails, prints invoices, tracks order status, coupons and discounts, has social sharing tools, multi-language, multi-currency and even saves favorite products. You can also configure shipping, payment and tax settings.
14.  A satisfied online customer is more likely to share / retweet / your product or service with their friends and family. By having a "good social presence" you can multiply your customer base with little to no money.
15.  An online store allows you to sell products that aren't in your inventory. You can order only the products that have sold and then have them shipped directly to your customer. Many times you can even have products drop-shipped by your supplier.
16.   Digital products (such as an ebook, music, photography, patterns, audio or video) or a digital service (such as tickets, memberships, service plans or consulting services) can be paid for and downloaded by your customer and you’re done. Products are automatically sent to your customer free of charge through an email. Talk about easy money!
17.   Advertising current deals and promotions online boosts foot traffic to your location. For example, if you own a restaurant you can display daily specials online, which will decrease calls asking about daily specials, and increases calls for reservations instead.
18.  If you have a business that receives payments for various services, you might want to consider offering online payments for convenience. For example, if your business is an apartment complex you could list community features, unit amenities and rental rates.
Well, there you have it! The many ways a website can pay for itself, and turn into profits before you know it!

Is this the first impression you want to present to your customers?

 

If you take on the struggle to learn how to develop your website yourself, your visitors will experience your experiment of your first website build. Like a crayon drawing hanging up on the side of a fridge. Is this the first impression you want to present to your customers or the most prominent competitors in your industry?
First impressions matter! Since most people use the Internet to find a product or service these days, your professional website will be the first impression many people get of your business. A flashy, disorganized, or difficult to navigate website may turn away potential clients. What first impression is your website giving? Let us give your business an edge with an impressive professional website!

They recommend a website redesign or revamp every 2-3 years.

 

When your website developer freshens up their own website, it's probably time for you to do the same. As a rule of thumb, we recommend a website redesign or revamp every 2-3 years. The Internet is always changing and so are its search engines. I recommend updated content often to maintain a modern online presence and keep up with industry best practices, which are always changing. Content needs to be accurate and up-to-date. Every time you make an update to your website, the search engine takes notice and re-arranges your site's ranking. Thus, if you want to increase the chances of your website getting a higher ranking, update the content frequently so that a search engine will reassess your position on its index.

Stake your claim in your industry with a shiny new website!

In order to make it in business, you need something exceptional to stand out. At the same time, one needs to not compare themselves with others and focus on what sets you apart.

I believe that behind each successful website there needs to be a strong collaboration between designer and client. The designer and client must work as a team. As such, I guarantee your ideas will be heard, respected and discussed, and, if necessary, improved, by taking the time to listen to your needs and understand your goals. Working together can be a stress-free experience that who knows, might even turn out to be fun!

Invest in your business… It pays off.

 

Invest in your business… It pays off.
I have been creating websites, implementing business marketing concepts and learning about what works and doesn’t work since I started my own small business over 15 years ago. During this time, I've learned a lot about what is worthwhile for your bottom line. I aim to develop beautiful websites that are easy to navigate and comprehend by your online customers. I have created websites for many local businesses, which are displayed on my online portfolio website. Do what you love and never work a day in your life!

Be the master in your industry with a stunning new website.

If you do not have a website you are losing money. Owning your own website will make you credible with your customers and put you on an even playing field with your competitors. Both will improve your bottom-line for profitable results. I do not consider your website an advantage for me, I consider it a service that will help you grow for many years to come. I offer clear price rates upfront, so there's no surprises. All my rates are shown on my quotes page online.
