I don’t care what your business is. I don’t care if you’re a carpenter or a mover or a painter or a limo driver. At the end of the day, service professionals are all trying to acquire more of the same old thing: quality leads. I say I don’t care what you do for a living because, as a copywriter, my...


This Fourth of July, after the party has died down and you’re sitting with your family and friends watching the fireworks show, make sure to have a look around – people watch for a minute. Take in the glee that’s all around you. Listen for the oohs and aahs from parents trying to heighten the moment...


I know what you’re thinking: here we go again. Here’s another Google product. Here’s yet another time burner. Here’s something else I have to spend a buck on. Believe me, I’m with you. Keeping up with Google’s ever-evolving landscape for the sake of your online marketing can be tiresome; it seems li...


That bad review has been on your mind, hasn’t it? It’s not really a big deal, but it bugs you every now and again, right? Like a mustard stain on a white shirt collar, that two-star review is a grim reminder that your business has been publicly tainted. And the whole world can see that ugly yellow s...


Your website isn’t a brochure. It’s not meant to just look nice and be informative. Its purpose, first and foremost, is to sell. Sell. Sell. Sell. And then sell some more.

Absolutely it does! Why? Probably because 1) it’s nice to know that somebody out there loves the way you do busine...


AdWords, Google’s online advertising service, is how Google makes its money -- $57.86 billion in 2013, to be exact. So if the annual revenue Google makes from AdWords can buy 57 Taj Mahals, why isn’t everyone who uses the service getting filthy rich, too? The fact of the matter is that Google makes...


In addition to being nominated for seven Academy Awards, The Shawshank Redemption either won or was nominated for 25 other accolades (which just so happens to be the average number of times a typical fan has seen it). The Shawshank Redemption is a time-tested cult class that’s as satisfying...


Every now and again, I come across a website that’s obviously made for people. And it makes me feel good – the way a website is supposed to. The best websites are driven by aesthetics and always strive to give users the best possible experience. To be completely honest, the Internet of 20...


Words are powerful, but letters are supreme. I mean think about it: the Oxford English Dictionary contains more than 170,000 words and they’re all produced from a finite 26-letter pool.
