It’s SO Simple, anyone…

I was browsing LinkedIn when I came across a very interesting post by Gordon (Gordy) Curphy, PhD, citing a Bartelby article in The Economist. The Economist article is behind a paywall, so I won't be linking to it. But as I read Dr. Curphy's summary (and his snarky comment about writing a book with Read more [...]

Interview with Paul B Evans

I have followed Paul Evans for several years, and when he announced his upcoming free online marketing course in late December 2019, I signed up for it. True to his word, he started the course on New Year's Day of 2020. I found his course quite interesting and informative, and I also discovered that Read more [...]

I have used SocialAdr for several years now, and for most of that time, it was a reasonably good way to get backlinks that noticeably improved traffic to my various sites -- and boosted sales.

Have you gotten the “Kiss of Death” from Facebook Yet?

Facebook has been acting a bit strange lately. Or at least, "different." I started noticing that one of my "fan" pages consistently gets very sluggish and unresponsive, at least until I respond to a "notice" that tells me that if I pay $3 to "boost" my post, 1,100 more people can see it.

SEO is Still a Fool’s Game

I was asked to do a presentation for the North Texas PC Users Group, which I did yesterday (Saturday October 22nd, 2016). I had spoken there about SEO a couple of years ago, and there was a recent major course change at Google with respect to backlinking, namely, they decided (about 3 years late) to Read more [...]

Hiring a Virtual Assitant

I was invited to do another remote presentation to the North Texas PC Users Group (I'm still a member, even though I have moved to Oklahoma), this time on my experience with hiring a GVA, or general virtual assistant.
