Today I opened another business venture, this time to help businesses
make their websites work better.
"Work better" covers a lot of
ground, sure. But after toying with the idea for over a year it seems
like a good time to put my technical knowledge of search engine
marketing and conversion to good use.
The final push was when ...
One of my fellow moderators on an Entrepreneur forum we both spend too much time on,Todd Chism, just got nominated by his colleagues for Entrepreneur of the Year - and made it to the final!
Todd's a great guy and has built a great company selling patio furniture amongst other things.
Why am I telling you all this? I need your votes to help ...
I came across some great quotes this evening from a business forum I recently joined..think about them.
When you complain.."80% of the people don't care about your problems, and the other 20% are glad you have them"Another.. "People tend to overestimate what can be done in one year and underestimate what can be done in ...
Dan asked me to post an update as I explore deeper into the Google forest. I'm now fully committed to Gmail and Google Calendar (why isn't it GCalendar?) and Outlook is now purely an evil tolerated for work purposes only.
And with Rob Howard's tweet this morning about Google Apps for business, perhaps that's only temporary! Go ...
My daughter thinks it's funny when I talk about Gmail - she says it sounds like "super hero mail". I am of course ok with that.
I've been using it more and more recently. I've been sucking in my personal email to Gmail for a month or so and reading it there. When I went on vacation for a week I was reading it on my phone ...
Yeah, working as a FTE does change your perspective. Way, way back I loved reading about and playing with SEO techniques - all new and sneaky.
Just this month I've started looking around again at what's going on and frankly I'm stunned. All this talk of people earning $1m/month. wtf?
I hadn't even heard of Google TrustRank until ...
Last summer, prompted by a neighbor who has the UPS guy at her front door even more than we do, my wife decided to get into "selling stuff online". It's not just beanie babies on eBay apparently.
There's a lot to learn about - wholesalers, drop shippers, light bulk, liquidation sales, importing and weird new acronyms like MAP ...
I went to renew my Microsoft Partner Program membership today before it runs out at the end of the month. For a few hundred bucks I get 10 copies of XP and Office to use around the house - there are other benefits, but that alone makes me renew each year.
This year, something is different. I'm now using FF as my default browser...
So when I ...
I've had a blog post from Seth Godin marked as unread for a month now, even though I've read it a few times. I'm not sure why it struck a chord with me, but this wasn't actually something that Seth said - he was just reporting on some marketing that w00t did on adwords. Search for "goog" and you'll see ...
Ok, I ought to give credit where it's due because you won't find this great example of "how to do PR properly" unless you're searching the site.
Floyd Price of Code Spaces posted a comment on an old Subversion post and did a great job of answering my pointed questions. I haven't switched; I haven't even ...
