Where to Start Online As a Local Tradesman
Marketing by Smith Smith
Consumer interaction with local business data is completely different than it was just six years ago. When someone wants or needs a product or service, they go straight to their smart phone to find the answer. As the intelligence of Google and other search engines progress, modern US citizens become increasingly reliant on the instant information that we already take for granted. Whether it’s shopping online for clothes on your favorite store’s website or using a search engine to find a local painter, we use our smart phones on a daily basis to do almost everything for us. Our expectations of these small devices are higher than ever. Google has coined the process in which we interact with our smart phones and how our smart phones respond as ‘micro-moments’. Examples of these interactions include the questions we ask our smart phones every day, such as “Where is a good place to eat?” or “Where can I find a local plumber?”

Marketing by Smith Smith
Whether you're an experienced business owner or just starting out, you probably already know that it's essential for the short-term and long-term success of your business that you have a marketing team assigned specifically to the promotion of your business.

Is Black-Hat SEO Safe?
Marketing by Smith Smith
Black-hat SEO is an under-the-table Internet marketing strategy that has branched off of original SEO techniques that help improve your business’s online presence by increasing your website and social media pages’ positioning and traffic on popular search engines. Black-hat SEO basically refers to any SEO techniques that specifically target search engine positioning rather than improved readability or experience for your potential customers. Their only goal is to increase your business website’s search engine rank through any means necessary. Usually, the means necessary are not in agreement with the guidelines, or rules, instated by popular search engines. In simple terms, black-hat SEO is virtually the black market of search engine optimization. However, it’s pretty tempting. One of the most frustrating problems with traditional SEO is that it is a long-term process that does not guarantee immediate results. Black-hat SEO offers a faster return, but it can also be extremely dangerous for the long-term success of your business.
