June 26th, 2009

My Web Rank!

Recently, in an email, I was asked if changing hosting companies would affect a site’s ranking.  I knew this to be a somewhat common question and felt it would be worth posting the answer to the web site.  I felt this way mostly because I knew I would be asked again by someone else at some point so I might as well type it up nicely so I only have to do it once.…

Perception Is Reality, 360 Degrees

January 2nd, 2009

I recently attended a networking event for small businesses and, as is customary at these events, everyone passed their business cards around. Now, since I am in the business of helping small businesses prepare and present the best possible image for themselves, I tend to take a good look at the overall quality and presentation of the business cards that come my way. Usually, there are a few cards in the bunch that could use a little sprucing up.

For those less informed about MMA, it should be noted that although MMA has recently seen significant increase in popular culture, most of the success has been centered around the most widely recognized ‘UFC’ brand.
