When a person initially visits a website, they're not sure whether or not they are going to find what they’re looking for. Obviously, you want to provide it for them. So how are you to know exactly what it is they desire? The easy thing to do is throw a bunch of options at them and hope they choose one, but this will only overwhelm them.

How to Get Personal with Content Marketing without Being Creepy

Posted by Christina Clemens

11/3/16 2:07 PM

Imagine if you could give every visitor to your site an experience targeted particularly to their interests. Doing so might be easier than you think. You don't need to write special content catering to various demographics and interests. And you certainly don't have to write personally tailored posts.

All you need is a bit of information about your readers. From there, you can start targeting your posts to their idiosyncratic content consumption habits. Here's how to thread the needle between custom-tailored content and creepy intrusiveness.

Know Thy Customer: The Difference Between a Startup that Sinks or Swims

The word "crucial" gets thrown around a lot. Scratch that. The word "crucial", together with all of its approximate synonyms such as decisive, essential, imperative, vital or pivotal, is experiencing an overuse of staggering levels. Nowhere is this more noticeable than in business articles where every little thing, no matter how miniscule, can be (and is) described as crucial depending on what the writer needs.

3 Reasons Why Having Multiple Sites is Killing Your Marketing Efforts

I often come across new clients who have paid a web developer to create multiple sites under multiple domain names. In fact we recently started on a local Houston inbound marketing strategy for a client and came across this same issue. We won’t mention any names, but for this example, let’s say the client’s business name is J. Smith Architects. They do architectural work in Houston and have 3 main websites on three domains:
