Google Business Listings and Fake Reviews

Google Business Listings and Fake Reviews

Sadly it happens to all of us, we get a bad review on the quality of our customer service and or products we sell. After 24 years in business I was bound to have a few bad reviews from legitimate clients with whom I didn't see eye-to-eye with on a project of theirs. However, in the era of "fake news" we also have fake reviews. I have been busy helping my clients remove unwarranted, malicious, and negative reviews from users that have never used their services or purchased their products from their Yelp, Facebook and Google profiles. Sadly this week, it was my business' turn to contest a slew of one-star reviews from users with questionable or no profile at all.  With their profiles gone, their reviews continue to still be listed and it may be affecting my business significantly. What to do?

The Joy of Doing Business with a Motivational Speaker

The Joy of Doing Business with a Motivational Speaker

Dave came to me after seeing Linda Larsen’s website and success. Doing business with Dave has been a blessing, as I have the opportunity to provide my services to yet another motivational speaker. Dave had an existing Wordpress site that was not working for him, and was not representing his “Joy Strategy” message he was trying to deliver to his customers. Thanks to Dave’s references to Stephen Colbert: The Late Show, I was able to design him a site that adds color and life to his marketing strategy. Our redesign included a revised “Speaking of Joy” brand which set the tone for the rest of the sites typographical schema and layout. Today, I launched a fully responsive website for Dave Caperton on the Business Catalyst platform. The platform offers a robust set of tools that enable its customer to not only effectively market their business, but also maintain their site on their own. With Dave delivering his message and words of wisdom on how to live life with joy, he will be utilizing the Blog and Email Campaign services of the platform on a regular basis.

Set Stylist Continues to Market Using Business Catalyst’s Email Campaign Module in 2016

Set Stylist Continues to Market Using Business Catalyst’s Email Campaign Module in 2016

Last year Kristine Nex came to me with a mailing list of over 5,000 subscribers and needed a service to deliver her “shout-out” to her database of subscribers to promote her business in the new year. One problem though, her website service didn’t have an effective email campaign delivery system. With her husband, Anthony Nex having his Helms Daylight Studio site on the Business Catalyst platform that come with one, but not being used, we essential borrowed the service for her marketing needs. After creating an email template that matches Kristine’s brand at her site, we masked her deliveries as though it was coming from her site. Not only is the Helms Daylight Studio website managing the subscriber and email campaign database, it is also receiving all off of the traffic coming through site from Kristine’s marketing efforts. I consider this a double marketing whammy, with traffic for both businesses, and all for one low subscription price. Though Kristine’s subscription count has now surpassed the default 5,000 free-subscription deliveries per month, Business Catalyst does offers a 10,000 count bump at a very affordable $5 per month, as needed. With 2016 in front of us, so is the list of emails set to be delivered automatically on their specified dates, while the system manages the subscriber list hands-free.

Getting it Right in 2016!

Regina Clark came to me back in 2013 to have a website developed for her high-energy speaking, just as I was mastering my abilities to develop fully responsive websites. Implementing a mobile redirect to a mobile-friendly portion of her website, I was able to provide Regina with an effective website to help her with the marketing of her business. However, Regina has returned to me after taking a 1-year hiatus from her business, with a new company and brand identity. Having already served her recently, I offered a lower rate to revamp the design of the site and make it fully responsive this time around. Her site is on the Business Catalyst platform, utilizing its CMS , Blog and Email Marketing services. So, not only will she enhance her brand and expand her services, I will get to develop her site to meet today’s technological needs to effectively market itself on the Internet.

What She Needs, Business Catalyst WebApps Can Provide

What She Needs, Business Catalyst WebApps Can Provide

Denise Kamena comes to me with a quest to build a member and database-driven website, at a fraction of the cost, utilizing the Business Catalyst platform. A few years ago I would have charged a big chunk of change for this site, but now with some experience working with the platform it is now time to test its limitations and offer it to her at an affordable rate. Denise, a personal care provider who often takes her clients to their doctor and dentist appointments, struggles to manage her notes that she needs to provide to their social workers who represent them. She would often write things down on a piece of paper, or notepad on her mobile device, only to either lose the notes or not have all the details in order. She spends more time on this aspect of her job than she would like to. My job is to solve that problem and develop a Business Catalyst WebApp to handle this task as efficiently as possible.

Local Client, National Client, Corporate Client

Local Client, National Client, Corporate Client

I am very pleased to announce the launch of Pacific Coast Chemical Company’s new website. The company, based out of Berkeley, with 17 locations across the country, had been using a very expensive and out dated online database service that was costing them an insubordinate amount of money on a monthly basis. By providing them with a site which offers not only what they had before, but also the commerce-ability at a fraction of the cost on the Business Catalyst platform, we couldn’t be happier. At the completion of the project, and after providing my free 1-hour admin training services to their staff, they are managing the site on their own with success. Not having to provide any additional services tells me that I have completely fulfilled the client’s needs. I have done this before with Job Journal’s* Job Resource and HireEvents sites. This doesn’t make me sad, or less successful, but it does make me feel proud that I did the job right.
