My BrainThis isn't really about my brain—or maybe it is.

Back in the late 1990s (1998 maybe?), I attended an IBM conference where IBM was introducing a new technology gadget. They called it the IBM WorkPad and it was a neat little handheld device where you could keep notes, your contact lists, calendar, and tasks—all in the palm of your hand!  There was no keyboard, you used a plastic pencil-looking stick to navigate and "type." And, of course, you could use it to help manage your IBM enterprise systems, which is why it was branded as the WorkPad rather than the PalmPilot.  They had a fantastic offer—50% off. If I remember correctly, that was about $150, still a huge "investment" for me on my non-profit income.

This was in the days before we all had hundreds of passwords (well, those of us working in technology were starting to have them in volume!), before the Internet was common on our desktops, before you had to sign into everything and anything! But, I still had plenty of small details to keep track of, and I soon dubbed this little wonder machine My Brain.

The importance of stories in your business

It's a few days after Thanksgiving, the Christmas holiday preparations have begun, and I just didn't think a techie post makes sense for this time of the year. Who wants to think about that stuff now!

So, I scratched my head and wondered, "What would be useful, yet appropriate, as a post for this time of year?"

And, then it came to me -- STORIES!

If there is ever a time of year that stories appear EVERYWHERE, it's during the month of December.

Best Free CMS Award - Joomla!

The Joomla! Content Management System was the winner of the 2017 Best Free CMS Award for the third year in a row!  WordPress was the runner up.  This is particularly impressive because the Joomla! project is a completely volunteer-run organization, unlike WordPress which has the for-profit company Automattic behind it.

In an earlier post, we discussed why it's important to optimize your website images, what that means, and showed you how to use a free online tool.

The tool we described is great for working with one image at a time. But, what if you need to resize a bunch of images, maybe for a slideshow or to display in a grid? You could work for hours resizing one image at a time!

Branded email. What is it?

It is an email address that is branded to your business, such as YourName@YourBusiness.com. It's not YourBusiness@gmail.com -- that is branded for Google!

Why is a branded email important for your business?

First, it indicates to your customers and prospects that you are serious about your business. It's not a hobby. You plan to be around and have invested in securing a legitimate business email address.

Second, it is an easy advertisement for your website. The address to your website is right there, contained in your email address! An interested person trying to find your website only has to look at your email address and know exactly how to find your business.

A big thank you to Syracuse Woman Magazine for including me and eKamria in their WBOC Leading Woman article in the August 2017 issue.  I appreciate the exposure it has given me, and I also appreciate the look it gave me into the jobs other women in our community perform.SyracuseWomanMagazine Banner smOnline version

It was quite an experience!

First, I watched magazine editor, Lorna Oppedisano, pull together the pieces to get the ball rolling, knowing that this is just one small article of about fifteen that are included in the magazine every month. Just the thought of that gives me a headache!

Getting your business name out and driving traffic to your website is a multi-pronged endeavor.  Having a website will not, by itself, generate calls and inquiries for your business.  It's just one of the many tools available to you.  

In our last post, Four Ways To Increase Traffic To Your Website, we discussed just a few ways to drive traffic to your website using online tools.

In this post, we are going to focus on offline techniques to increase visits to your website.

You invest in a website for your business. You spend hours, days and weeks crafting your message, selecting just the right images. You are careful to include the right keywords and phrases that customers will use to search for your product or service.

And, finally, your launch day arrives! Now, you can just sit back and wait for all the business to come pouring in!

Right? Well, not really.
