How to Be Happier: 3 Questions to Ask Yourself
Why be happier? Simple: You’ll be more productive. People want to do the things that they love, and in some cases, that means doing other things that they don’t love in order to get to do the things they love later. However, it’s really easy to get to the end of doing all the things you hate (we are
Promote What You Love Instead of Bashing What You Don’t
As I’m wont to do from time to time, I was free-falling through the internet and came across an interesting quote. I actually have no idea how old it is, or who actually coined it. The rare attribution I find for it states it as an Anonymous quote. The quote in full: “Promote what you love inste
You Have to Be Crazy to Own a Business
In case you didn’t know that already, read the title again. Some might say that that is a sweeping generalization that isn’t entirely politically correct. However, think about it a little bit more carefully and it makes sense. Insanity is really only definable as a lack of sanity, and sanity is only
Increased Demand: Staying Afloat in Rising Waters
It’s been a pretty crazy couple of weeks here at RevBuilders Marketing. We’re getting a nice influx of new clients, and as a result our schedules are all getting just a little bit tighter. Sometimes, I can imagine, businesses aren’t 100% sure that they want to grow for this reason. It does mean incr
Have You Done a Sanity Check on Your Rates Lately?
This is especially important for those businesses which compete at least partially on cost. I’m not here to get into a sophisticated philosophical debate regarding which kinds of businesses that includes; if you feel like your business is included in that demographic, read on. Even if you don’t beli
Your Homepage Is Your Online Elevator Speech
Alright, it’s time to do a little mind experiment. Suppose that you are at a major networking event in your industry. You’re there to make contacts that could help you secure future work. Things have been decent for your business, and you can safely say that you have something established to work wi
How Well Do You Know Your Business?
I know, I get it. It seems like such a stupid question, right? Of course a business owner knows their business inside and out, frontwards and backwards, right-side-up and upside-down. However, I also think that some business owners take this idea for granted and assume that they know their business
The Need to Feel Needed
Here’s a bit that could be applied to a lot of things: customer service, employee management, and really just life in general: People desire to feel needed. I think this is why entrepreneurs are always looking for the next problem that they can solve. It isn’t just about the money that can come from
Why You Should Be Wary of Responsive Web Design
Responsive web design is a new web design practice which, by all accounts, is the “next big thing,” at least in the web design industry. This practice eliminates the need for separate mobile and desktop websites, and Google has gone so far as to explicitly announce their preference for responsive we
Search Engine Land Runs Manual Action Chart by Google
So, it seems that, in some ways, at least, Google is trying to be a little bit more transparent without volunteering their formula for determining a site’s SERP ranking on a given keyword. We obviously couldn’t expect them to diverge such a thing, in the same manner that we couldn’t expect a video g
Microsoft Ends Google Attack Campaign
In their endeavor to chip away at Google’s dominant market share, Microsoft’s tried a few different tactics in promoting their search engine, Bing. The two most recent ones were as follows: One attempted to demonstrate that blind testing showed a preference for Bing in the spirit of the Pepsi Challe
Three Golden Nuggets
From my wonderful team to our incredible customers, I have been stretched in so many different ways.. As I mentioned last time, we are on a quest at RevBuilders Marketing to make 2013 our break-out year by implementing some internal changes. It will be bumpy, but in the end it will be beneficial for
SERP Ranking Study Shows #1 Not All It’s Cracked Up to Be
Alright, maybe that’s a little exaggerated, but SEOMoz’s February 21 blog was an interesting study on where the first organic search result on a page is shown in a number of different scenarios, with the full spectrum, from best case to worst case scenarios, considered. The study demonstrates that w
Link-Building: The Bonsai Tree of Online Marketing
Have you ever seen a bonsai tree? That’s what’s contained in our image for today’s blog. What you see when you see a bonsai tree is a tree that is of the exact same type as one of the telephone-pole-sized plants that you know and love, but, well, smaller. There is no breeding which causes this phe
Search Engine Optimization, Simplified (Maybe)
So, I happened across this comic the other day on XKCD, describing the rocket Saturn V using, according to the author, only the 1,000 most commonly used words in the English language. It’s created a bit of a buzz, and there is now a text editor you can use in order to attempt to create copy under th
Refocus and Do What You're Built to Do
We are one month in to 2013. Are you on track to hitting your personal and business goals? Or is this a question you would rather not ask yourself? Some big decisions have been made here at RevBuilders Marketing and we are on track to getting them implemented. But boy oh boy is it hard. One
Super Bowl XLVII Yields Bad Commercials, Conspiracy Theories
It only happens once per year. It’s that wonderful time of year when we can get together with family, sit down with great food and great company, and watch grown men attempt tirelessly to inflict grievous bodily harm on one another while advertisers work tirelessly to ensure that you buy their b
How to Promote Your Company on Facebook (Without Annoying Everyone)
Google has been incorporating social signals into its search ranking algorithm for quite some time now. Obviously, nobody outside of Google knows exactly how much weight these signals have in the overall algorithm, but the simple fact is that these signals are being seen by Google and so a well-like
Why Are You in Business?
I know, it sounds like a silly question with an obvious answer. You and I both know that, fundamentally, the answer is that you need to feed your family, or, if you’re single, you need to feed yourself. Your prime directive in running a business is to make money. If you didn’t need money, you would
Building a Convertible Website
In my previous post, I discussed how one’s website is the product that online marketing efforts attempt to “sell.” That is, the goal of online marketing is to drive traffic to a website. This, of course, then begs the question of how this helps a business. Simply put, this helps a business by showca
The Nature of Product Online
I think it’s important, every now and then, to take a step back and investigate the entire field of marketing, if for nothing else than to respect it for the immense, multi-headed creature that it is. It’s strange to think that online marketing, which is itself a niche of marketing, is an extremely
Have You Made Your New Years’ Resolutions?
I know, I know. You still have about 15 hours before the ball drops on 2012 and we start 2013. Though I must say, even if you have no idea what you are going to change for next year, we do have some good news. We’re still here, and therefore survived whatever end of age occurred in the Mayan calenda
Why Whitespace Is Beautiful
What do these three websites have in common? I may have given the answer away in the title to this blog. Yes, whitespace. It’s there, it’s available, and for many companies, the temptation to fill it with every design element imaginable is irresistible. The thing is, though, that if we want to
Branding Is Essential for Businesses
It’s something that few small businesses think about until they start to see some stability, but that they should probably be thinking about from day one. It’s a fundamental question which sets the tone for the entire business going forward: “What’s our brand?” Branding is more than just paying s
The Dreaded S-Word
Is it just me, or has the meaning of a certain four-letter word been diluted to the point of not really meaning much of anything at all? I suppose monosyllabic words have a habit of losing their meaning over time, but this word was once something which elicited such strong, negative feelings as to b
Thoughts on Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales
I understand that this blog is a little bit late. I probably should have had this out in time for Thanksgiving. However, writing it as a retrospective can still work, I suppose, and I feel like this is one of those marketing topics that it’s high time I gave my opinion on. There are plenty of people
What Is A/B Testing?
If you’ve spent any time working with a marketing professional on any of a number of different areas: direct mail, e-mail newsletters, banner ads, websites, and so forth, you have probably heard either “A/B testing” or “multivariate testing” used by the marketer. They may or may not have explained w
Why Flash Is Obsolete
First of all, I want to clarify that when I say that Flash is obsolete, I don’t mean that it is becoming obsolete or that, in the near future, it will be supplanted by some new technology and will slowly phase out and be obsolete. I mean that it is already obsolete, and was obsolete long before the
How to Get Visitors to Return to Your Website
If you own a website, you want return visitors. A return visitor is as important to a website as a repeat customer or a regular is to any business. It’s the “fan” concept: If you know you can count on someone to look at what you’re doing or to purchase what you offer, then you know you can count on
Why You Should Give Your Expertise Away on Your Blog
It’s no secret that many businesses remain uncertain of the overall impact that their online presence can and should have. For many service-based businesses, there is a particular hesitation with social networks and the use of blogging to generate exposure for the business. It doesn’t really compute
Happy Halloween from RevBuilders Marketing!
Let’s see if I can pull this off. For Search Engine Land, SEOMoz, Matt Cutts, and really just about anybody in the SEO industry. Quick disclaimer: This is not meant to reflect reality in any way. I was just trying to have some Halloween fun. SEOs like to demonize Google’s algorithm updates, espec
Knowing Your Audience
This is the fundamental question one must answer in order to write to their audience. If you don’t know who your audience is, how can you possibly be expected to write to them? Moreover, if you don’t know what your audience wants, how can you expect to deliver it to them? These are the questions tha
SEO: Sometimes, the Best Thing to Do Is Forget about It
Wait, what? Did I really just say that? Did a marketing company which performs SEO services for people really just suggest that anybody ever not worry about ranking in Google? You better believe it! There are many reasons why I stake this claim. With any luck, I can provide enough justification here
2 Quick Writing Suggestions for Non-Writers
Let's not kid ourselves: The truth is that it is very difficult for the average person to come up with the words that they want to say to someone when they are sitting at a computer, typing away. Usually, the person attempting the writing will either make it more formal than is really called for in
How to Spot an Ineffective Webpage
Let me start by stating the obvious: Your webpage is one of the most significant determinants to your online presence. If you do not have a blog and do not participate in social media as a business, it’s your entire online presence. As such, I don’t think you and I need to debate too long as to the
Just Beat It
Guest post 4 of 4. Warning...Michael Jackson references ahead. “Beat it! Beat it!” Oh. You’re here. I shall now put away my MJ music…ahem. I’m not sure how many people in Scot’s life were aware, but he’s been working on losing weight this year. He had the goal fairly early on, maybe even a
Communication Is the Key to Clarity, and Clarity Is Key
Guest post 3 of 4. One of the things I like about MarketingExperiments is that their content never gets old. I read this article back in November of 2011, but I still think it’s highly relevant. In fact, it goes with a former blog post of mine about Email Marketing really well (talking about sw
Warning: Change Ahead (Again)
Guest post 2 of 4. Now, I’m kind of curious what some of you think of Facebook? You’ve had about a year to get used to the new timeline format. Like it? Dislike it? Stronger feelings than that? I personally like most of the timeline layout. I love the massive cover picture. It’s hard for
Impact of Color on Web Design
Guest Post 1 of 4...technically. It was kind of hard to write a blog when I knew I’d already be gone, but I wanted to help RevBuilders out a little more. So, I’ve worked up a series of “guest blog posts”! Keep in mind I’m gone for all of these, (although I’ll probably end up checking in to make
Time to Say Goodbye
(I hate goodbyes.) As some of you may have heard, I’m leaving RevBuilders. Before you make any assumptions, I wanted to let you know: it’s not because I hate my job, or dislike RevBuilders, or have personality conflicts with Scot. Simply put, I was offered a job at a non-profit, and ministry/non-
Are You Being Intentional?
Lessons learned tend to come in waves for me. I don’t know about you, but when I learn something new or see an idea presented in a neat way, I tend to get bombarded with follow-up messages and ideas with this overarching theme. Maybe it’s the whole idea that if you are looking for something you tend
The Paralympics: Overcome Your Obstacles
Something I learned recently (and feel rather silly for not knowing beforehand) is the Paralympic Games. It shouldn’t have surprised me, really. I’m aware of competitions for those that are disabled on a smaller scale. I’ve heard of events like this before. Yet it just never dawned on me that the
Countries at the Olympics: Learning New Things All the Time
I continue to have question after question as I read about the Olympics. For those of you that instantly pick up information the moment it’s in your radar, I envy you. Those like myself, we have to stop and look at the information and often read about it, to even have a chance at recalling anythin
Should You Be Skilled In One Area, Or In Many?
Wow, what a head-spin with the Olympics. Trying to keep up with all of the information has been mind-boggling, to say the least. Part of my struggle has been learning the scoring system for each different event. Since the only sport I played as a kid was soccer, and the only sport I’ve ever watch
The Olympics Start Today!
No, I’m not a huge, die-hard Olympic fan. In fact, I am fairly certain I’ve missed most of the games and news the last few Olympic events. Why? Well…to be honest, I really couldn’t tell you why exactly. I have my guesses, but nothing’s for certain. However, this year, what started off as
7 Principles to Practice in Basketball and Life
The following was provided to a young basketball team that I was coaching; however, I feel that the following applies to not just basketball, but everything in life. Enjoy! 1. Work Ethic and Preparation In life there are two things you can always control: how hard you try and how you prepare. It’
So We're Thinking of Hiring an 11 Year Old for Managing App Creation, Development, and Launch
No, not really. But we just had to write a response blog post, because we’re laughing so hard at the recent article here by Cathryn Sloane. If you are looking for a non-sarcastic response to that article, read this by Kat French. You have to understand that I am not someone to talk about “age
Don't Forget to Say Thank You
One thing that I have been doing a lot in the last month, even if no one bothers to look, is editing our client’s Thank You pages, and I will be updating RevBuilders’ Thank You pages to make them better. “The Thank You page?” I can hear someone ask me. “What good is editing the ‘Thank You’ page?
Happy Independence Day!
I know this is two days late, but in lieu of writing about marketing, I wanted to make a picture of a flag (even though I ran out of room on the stars - sorry). Happy (late) 4th of July from RevBuilders! What did you do for Independence Day?
Facebook Now Allows User Admins To Like Their Admin Pages
Surprise! Second blog today! Only this one I'm writing on-the-spot because I am too excited to wait until next week, and I had to share now...ready for this? Facebook just updated to allow user admins to like their own pages!!! I'm so excited I can't contain myself. What does this
How Effective Is Your Email Marketing?
While searching for a blog topic for today’s post, I received a notice that Jamie with Sigma College of Business had posted an article via social media outlets. I’ve always found that he shares really interesting stuff, so when I had a few minutes to read, I checked out the article. It was a g
At Least Have a Google+ Page
I think by now everyone understands that social media marketing is important. It’s been around long enough to have sunk in for most people. And, it’s also been around for enough time that people have had a chance to see the benefits of social marketing (when they are able to do it). However, the
How Are You Presenting Your Content? 3 Tips to Help Your Content Be More Visually Appealing
Most of you know I am not a graphic designer. If you haven’t figured it out, today’s blog picture should be clear evidence of that. If you’re still not convinced…you’re giving me way too much credit. I may have created a cool background with a tool called Aviary, but you would be highly mista
Master Wordsmith Moving on to Master Other Things
Yes, it is true – the title says it all. Nathan Schaad, RevBuilders’ Communications Editor, will no longer be working at RevBuilders Marketing (although we are thankful he will continue to copywrite for us for a time), and no, it is not because Nathan did a poor job. On the contrary, we are extrem
Google Now Differentiating HTML Status Codes
I can’t exactly pinpoint what the practical application for this will be, but Google has made a minor alteration in how it treats 404 (page not found) and 410 (gone) server header page status codes. A quick post at Search Engine Round Table discusses the change in the context which was given by Goog
Assumption is the Enemy of Communication
Time and Task Management is truly, officially completed! I’m sure you’re disappointed, but no worries, I’m continuing to learn and will probably soon have to rewrite the series for you to enjoy all over again. I should write a song or a poem about how much learning goes on in my life. But maybe t
8 Things Customers Demand from Companies
In a recent article on Inc.com, author Geoffrey James mentioned eight things that bosses want from their employees. As I was reading the article, it occurred to me: Aren’t these the eight things that customers want from the businesses they deal with as well? Here are my (modified) eight points,
Time and Task Management Includes Breaks

Why You Should Avoid Buying Cheap Words
There’s an interesting article that I came across earlier today here on the value of web content. Those who are familiar with RevBuilders know that I’m the “content guy” here, so I’m sure it seems more than fitting that I’m going to crusade for spending more on writers. In fact, I’m sure plenty of y
If Emergency Re-Prioritize
Time and Task Management: 6 of 6 Step 5: If an emergency comes up, or you reach the end of your list, stop and do another prioritization. So, you’re moving on down your task list, and everything’s going smoothly...until you get that email, or that phone call. It’s the all-time critical, emerg
Google Announced 54 Actions on Their Algorithms in April
Search engine optimization is all about keeping up with the different changes that Google makes throughout the year. Because the whole goal of an SEO is to work with the customer to make their site look highly relevant to the various search engines, it is basically our bread and butter to make sure
Work Down the Prioritized List
Time and Task Management: 5 of 6 Step 4: Work down your list, and stay only on the task you are on until you cannot do anything more with it. Ugh. That’s my response to today’s blog post – ugh. What a difficult, terribly difficult, concept. I still struggle with this one constantly. You have
Google’s Penguin Update Has SEOs Up in Arms: But, What Is It?
by Nathan Schaad The elephant in the room for SEOs for the past several months has been Panda, a Google update which was supposed to punish sites with low-quality content. How the change defined “quality” was hotly contended for quite some time, and then people more or less went quiet. Anymore, P
Time and Task Management: 4 of 6 Step 3: Prioritize This is probably the step you’ve been really waiting for – how to prioritize. I wish I would have learned so much of this so long ago. I can’t tell you specifically what to prioritize, but I’ll try and give you some guidelines on how I pr
Content: How Much is Too Much?
by Nathan S With Google pressing business owners with new guidelines which seek to penalize "over-optimized" sites, many people are concerned that their existing content may suffer penalization under these new guidelines. However, in most instances, there is no need to be worried. Even still, now
Schedule Time for Prioritization
Time and Task Management: 3 of 6 Step 2: Schedule when you will do your prioritization, and time for it. I know, you’re probably staring at this, trying to make sure you read it right. You did – you need to schedule when you are going to prioritize. I know this might seem counter-intuitive o
Help! My Website’s Been Hacked! (Part 3 of 3)
by Nathan S Last week, I gave a very basic overview of how choosing the wrong password can expose your business to hacker attempts. The truth is, bad passwords are a big “hack me” sign on the back of your business. So how can you avoid being victimized by someone with knowledge of computers, acce
Be Realistic About Time
Time and Task Management: 2 of 6 Step 1: Be realistic about your time, and about how much time you really have. Have you heard someone say, or maybe you say it all the time, “I didn’t get as much done as I thought I would” or “I never finish everything I plan on doing”? Ever wonder if maybe y
Help! My Website’s Been Hacked! (Part 2 of 3)
by Nathan S Last week, I taught you a few things about how to get your small business’ website back online after a hacker had gotten in and messed with a few things. Whatever they did, it did not represent the best interests of your company, so we went in and fixed it. However, now that we have y
5 Steps to More Effective Time and Task Management
Time and Task Management: 1 of 6 I'm not going to pretend to be super-knowledgeable about managing time or tasks (known at RevBuilders as to-do's, actually, but tasks is a little easier to write). However, I can honestly say I've learned a lot about the management of time and tasks, and I wish I
Help! My Website’s Been Hacked! (Part 1 of 3)
by Nathan S Don’t panic. I know that it’s a scary thing when your business webpage has been successfully modified by a hacker. In fact, there might be some intentionally disturbing stuff going on with your website because of it. However, dealing with a hacker is often not a big deal, provided you
Does Your Social Marketing Invite Your Customers To Orbit?
by Tamara S. I normally try to come up with my own thoughts for blogs, but I don't know that much, and there's a lot of great information and thought-provoking articles to read out there! In particular, "Three Steps to Generating Social Gravity" by Mark Bonchek came out this past Monday, and it
4 Tips for Writing a Press Release for Your Small Business
by Nathan S A good press release can mean lots of free publicity, while a bad press release means wasting a lot of time and possibly money. However, when first starting out, many businesses do not pursue the press release as an option as a result, believing that it requires money to create a rele
A Wild and Wooly Week in the World of Search
by The RevMan There is one thing we know for sure when it comes to SEO: It changes! There has been a ton of buzz, especially over the last couple weeks, about some changes Google has been implementing. These changes have actually been happening since late January or early February. The truth i
RevDay at RevBuilders on March 15th
by Tamara S. RevDay - which was March 15th - was an absolutely wonderful time for us at RevBuilders. It was a little stressful for me as I've never done anything like this before (excluding my wedding day, and that was far more stressful, I'll admit), but the response we got was so great it was
Is Your Site “Over-Optimized?”: A Thought Experiment
by Nathan S The Google algorithm looks as though it might be undergoing another change, in the same spirit as the recent “Panda” updates. Matt Cutts, head of Google’s spam team, discussed the possibility of a new update strives to, “level the playing field a bit,” by punishing web sites which
Danger Lurks on Facebook
by Scot S. First, I have to say it has been a crazy week, good crazy, but crazy nonetheless. New customers (always good), new proposals (thankful), new services to launch (exciting), internal systems to improve (hard work), current customer workload (thankful), and the list goes on. But I am not
Why SEO Remains an Underfunded Online Marketing Tool
by Nathan S I’m not going to lie: This post is, essentially, a reframing of two different blog posts on SEOMoz. One by Rand and one by Three Deep. These two articles are by far some of the most poignant investigations on PPC and SEO investment that I have seen online. One of them (Rand’s) is 4 ye
One Way to Manage a High-Content Blog: Focus

Responding to Negative Customer Feedback on Social Media
by Nathan S If you have a social media account for your business, be it Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+ or some combination of the five, chances are good that at some point, you have or will have to deal with postings which speak poorly of your company. Indeed, this is one of the

Getting the Most Out of Your Content

Need Proof That Web Design Can't Be Rushed?

Newgle: How Google Rankings are Changing
by Nathan S The SEO community in general is up-in-arms over recent Google algorithm changes. In fact, the extremity of an SEOs dissent seems to be directly correlated to how much of their work was done in “black hat” or unethical SEO tactics. Which is a good thing, I’d contend, but that doesn’t m

DOMES AND MINARETS ?N TURKEY
Ottoman architecture is Ephesus turkey often presented as essentially a continuation of the Byzantine tradition, but that's an oversimplification. Established in the 14th century, it grew out of the development of a great many architectural influences all over Anatolia, most notably the Selcuks.
For all its spatial grandeur Haghia Sophia is dull, dull, dull on the outside Ephesus
