My Apple Watch Review: 5 Reasons It Works
JULY 1, 2015
The Taptic engine is really quite amazing. It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of Apple products. I’m usually an early adopter no matter what the product is. However with the Apple Watch, I actually held back longer than usual for a few reasons. For starters, I’ve never been a watch/jewelry guy. I’ve never liked the feel of wearing anything like that. Uncomfortable?
The Importance of Search Engine Optimization
JULY 19, 2012
With this in mind, I think it’s important to look at some statistics to better understand why search engine optimization is so important. Here are some numbers to contemplate in this regard: 90% of the adult population in the United States uses a search engine to find information online. About 80% of all searches come from the organic search engines and not the paid search listings. So at a quick glance at the above numbers, this means that over 210 million people are actively using search engines to find the information they need. alone. Happy marketing!

Facebook Page Or Profile? I Say Both.
APRIL 6, 2011
Facebook Pages are indexed by search engines. I wrestled with the idea of creating a Facebook Page for my blog vs. just utilizing my Facebook Profile to promote. My initial thought was that I didn’t really see myself as being “celebrity” enough to warrant having what was once referred to as a “fan page”. It felt a bit vain to me, but I started to sense that I needed to re-visit the issue as more and more people I did not really know wanted to start connecting with me on Facebook professionally. Facebook pages have no limits. Just another avenue to increase your reach. Social Media

The fact is, most people are very knowledgeable about something. Keep it simple. Don’t overwhelm yourself with all the options out there. Topic Lists.
