Search is very helpful for your business but don’t forget longstanding real-world strategies. These days, many business owners have become obsessed with utilizing Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in their marketing campaigns. While SEO has a valued place in Internet marketing, it is possible to master local marketing without relying on it. In fact, when it comes...
I don’t think that I’ve met anyone who actually enjoys a performance review. I know that I never have been a big fan. Unfortunately, performance reviews are necessary to determine if your career is headed up or down. You get to see how productive you’ve been, where you’ve best contributed to the business, and where...
When you own or help run a company that sells products or services online, you need to do a lot to help it grow. Marketing, customer service, and even speedy load times are all important. Ecommerce businesses are on track to generate over $490 billion in U.S. sales by 2018. Now is a good time to establish a...
Traditionally, when employers have sought to reward top performers, they’ve relied on money. Whether in the form of a raise or a bonus, adding to your existing pay is one of the best ways to keep you around and make you feel appreciated. However, many small businesses are struggling to make budget on the revenue they...
When you think about it, websites have made giant improvements in appearance over the years. In the ’90s, businesses merely rushed to set up an online presence, resulting in an Internet full of electronic brochures.

Silicon Valley is largely considered the global leader in technology, with firms in the area competing for the highly-skilled developers and engineers located there. According to a new report though, U.S.-born engineers are leaving quicker than...
When you hear his footsteps, you’re filled with dread. You just know your overbearing boss is on his way to ask you if you’ve finished that report yet. He’ll no doubt have six or seven things he needs to add to it, only extending the completion time further. That won’t matter, though, because he’ll check...
So, here we are in the middle of what I call “CES season.” The massive Consumer Electronics Show is the first big Las Vegas convention of the year, and the place where all the big brands unveil their new products or services (or their tweaks to the same old products/services). Much of this whole pre-CES period is essentially a debate about whether...
  Seasoned entrepreneurs and bloggers might find this advice to be the most obvious thing in the world, but to those who are new at the big, bad world of entrepreneurship, blogging, specifically what the blog should be about, can be intimidating and full of unknowns. Too many times, readers will come across business blogs that...
IT workers, especially engineers, are often thought to be shy, more compartmentalized or less collaborative in their work style. That’s a stereotype though. Technology fields can be just as much of a hotbed of competition and dysfunction as anything you can imagine in industry, business, or government.
