Want a Google Places Local Search Page – One That Really Works?
Hi, I’m Steve. A retired, disabled veteran who had to start my life all over after I left the military because there were no jobs I could do and I was “overqualified and too old!”
What a blow to my self-esteem! I found a way to make money online and now I want to help others in my position to do the same. Paying it forward is key for me. (Hey! I”m a poet and don’t know it!)
Today I want to talk about Google Places Local Search Page and how you can really make one that works!
People are interesting for a lot of reasons, and we all have our own unique story to tell. I state this fact because there are a lot of motives people won’t try various tactics with their online businesses. Often, it’s a matter of personal problems interfering. Very common things like being too shy to make calls to businesses, to market oneself as a freelance writer, to follow up and be consistent, etc. These are things that can stop a person from taking action and they are very real.
Web marketers know that Facebook is an excellent way to generate leads and massive traffic if utilized the right way. Depending on your personal preferences, the test results that you hope to achieve can be accomplished in many ways. It’s so important to keep people on your page in order to get the best results possible with your Facebook ads. You should send them to your FB page, not your main website, when you start getting the traffic. It’s important to make people comfortable, which is something that is necessary when you have a marketing message to share.
Getting a Google Place Page is one thing. Doing what you need to after you have it is completely another. Even though this administrative aspect is seemingly not that important, it really is, and you need to be on your toes.
First of all, you have to be up-to-date and current with every aspect of your business. Should your phone number change, or other information about your business, Places Page is what you need to update.
Anyone that aspires to rank well on Google for their Page must make sure that it is updated and completed. Without this being complete, the Google algorithm will not be able to rank you properly, and no one will find you.
High rankings, and your success with your Google Places page, require you to have customer reviews. As you can imagine, there are many who try to game the system and submit fake reviews. You are taking certain risks if you do that, so it is up to you but we do not encourage it.
What a lot of businesses are doing now is encouraging people to review their business for their Places listing. When this occurs, to motivate others to do so, they offer bonuses to get reviews, which is sort of like gaming the system all over again.
Another way to look at it is they are giving incentives for customer reviews. You would have to pay some form of penalty if you did the same exact thing to get testimonials for products that you sell is an affiliate.
There are several important guidelines you should follow anytime you use visual media on your site.
Think about written content and visual content as complementary with each other. Making your images work the best takes a little practice until you understand what works best with your site.

The Advantages of Social Media Marketing
The Advantages of Social Media Marketing
Social media marketing in recent years has emerged as a popular tool that utilizes the latest in technology.
Many sites including Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, along with podcasts and blogs, make it possible to develop a one-on-one connection with an existing customer base and potential customers.
In fact, there are significant advantages to social media marketing, including the ability to reach customers typically missed by traditional marketing alternatives. In addition, social media platforms allow your company to build brand loyalty and personality to be used as an effective tool for interacting with customers. When used properly, social media marketing can show customers that you and the company care about their concerns and feedback.
Encourage Open Communication
There is no better tool for learning how to improve your services and products than by communicating with your existing customer base. In fact, encouraging an open line of communication through a public forum allows your company to understand how to make your sales pitch, services and product more palatable.
In addition, communication allows you and your company to learn a lot about your target audience. This can be done by reading their comments, feedback, reviews, and critiques, along with studying “online visitor analytics.” The information you acquire is often invaluable when incorporated in a plan involving marketing campaigns including offline marketing and emails.
More Advantages of Social Media Marketing
Developing an effective social media marketing strategy and implementing it online can make the most of your company’s marketing budget. In fact, it can reduce costs by posting content to Facebook or tweeting messages about updates and new products or services, instead of traditional methods, like paying for an ad or mailing promotional information by the thousands.
Other advantages of social media marketing include the ability to use advanced advertisement tools to implement a marketing campaign driven by demographics and keyword-specific information to get the most out of your marketing dollars.
Organic (Free) Search Results
Google, Bing, Yahoo, YouTube, LinkedIn and other major search engines closely monitor social signals when determining how to effectively rank every link and back link in a search engine optimization (SEO) query. To make the most of social signals, you can optimize your social media platform sites with compelling content that is easily found. This will allow the search engines to boost your ranking, and allow your potential customers to locate your content and link to your site.
Social media platform networking sites provide your company the opportunity to broadcast your updated content to a huge array of interested readers. Making it easier to find you online allows every interested prospect the ability to visit your content-filled site, subscribe to your services or product, spread the word to their friends, and eventually link to it.
Other Advantages That Social Media Marketing Provides
Social media networking sites offer an effective tool for providing optimal customer service to your customers. It serves as the ideal platform to field comments, questions, and concerns from your customer base.
Your customers are given the opportunity to communicate easily and directly with your company on the most common platforms, including Twitter and Facebook.
Using an open public format on a social media network site allows your customers to see your quick responsiveness and open line of communication.
Your responsiveness is an key to your customer base. It shows that you care about providing quality service, and are prepared to act quickly to resolve issues. This type of response is far better than one-on-one communication over a telephone line, because it helps build the company brand.
Validating Your Business
Among the other advantages of social media marketing is using social network sites to help build your company brand. This is because customers validate your business in a public forum viewed by other prospects.
When a customer is eager to tell the world and their friends of the quality customer service, products, and goods you provide, they can validate your company. In addition, it increases the chance that potential customers will turn to you whenever they require what you offer.
When used correctly, the advantages of social media marketing can be extremely beneficial. It can help boost the company’s search rankings, optimize your customer service, develop an effective online personality, build connections and relationships, and validate your business in a worldwide community.

6 Smart Business Ideas for Military Veteran Retirees
As a Military Veteran Retiree, Are You Trying to Find a New Challenge or Business Idea?
Why not start your own service?
Numerous retirees that have followed orders all of their lives are delighted at the idea of running the show, as well as constructing a service that mirrors their interests and values. If you’re thinking of launching a business during your retired life, below are 6 suggestions to obtain you started.
1. Online Services
Numerous brand-new organization ideas well-suited for retirees harness the power of the web, as long as you don’t allow modern technology daunt you. Many companies will provide the education you need. My favorite and most used is a company called POWER LEAD SYSTEM.
There is NOTHING about Online Business that they do not know. One is taught step by step from 6 & 7 figure earners who have “been there, and are still doing it.”
“Online companies are truly some of the most effective types of services for individuals over 50, but they require you to get over your worries. Companies like MLSP, Google, and YouTube can help to start up a Business Online rapidly.
One easy new business alternative includes looking into and compiling information on internet sites. Another easy to do, low techno knowledge needed, is Affiliate Marketing. Selling other People’s Products and getting a commission for selling them. There are tons of online companies that encourage this kind of marketing, e.g., Clickbank, Power Lead System, JVZoo, etc.
Another of my favorite sorts of online organizations is one that helps small businesses with their Online Marketing. Most businesses are so wrapped up in making money that they have little time or expertise in Online Marketing. They will pay handsomely for that service. And you don’t need to be a techno-geek or take months to learn how to do it.
As people get older, the time invested in activities (such as a new business venture) becomes very important. She is a big fan of the idea of retirees learning to use technology because of the time saved by automated programs, but she stresses the importance of choosing a business you enjoy.
The key to a great retirement is doing what you love and finding a way to monetize it quickly.
Retirees thinking about beginning businesses ought to start by thinking of two areas: skills from their previous tasks and life lessons. These experiences make retirees well-positioned to share their understanding.
Considering that they have a great deal of life and also profession experience, a consulting and also training business suits them well as a brand-new venture. By taking advantage of existing expertise, retirees can invest their time discovering the ropes of running a new company.
2. Consulting and Coaching.
Military Veteran Retirees must concentrate on work as well as business possibilities that utilize the person’s years of job as well as life experience, such as consulting, teaching or tutoring. As opposed to sharing expertise with in-person service, retirees may prefer to teach or instructor via a freelance creating business.
Writing and also blogging can be a means for the retirees to remain engaged in an online or other neighborhood, produce some revenue and leverage their understanding.
As you think of brand-new service concepts, ask yourself, “How much time do you want to spend working? What kind of flexibility do you need? Do you want to work from a fixed area or work virtually? What topic particularly excites you?”
It’s also essential to consider your potential service customers, and also if they can manage to pay you. “This will certainly identify whether what you supply ends up being a leisure activity or charitable undertaking, or is an actual service.
3. Begin a “Mastermind Group.”
Have you left a successful career after establishing a large network of valuable and experienced business contacts? If so, the main ingredients of your new business idea may be as close as your address book. If so, one suggestion could be a personal digital assistant.
Retirees have found out lessons that numerous business owners won’t find out for an additional 1 to 2 decades. This is why starting a Mastermind Group is an all-natural fit for retirees. Here are 5 Essential Rules for Building a Mastermind Group That Gets Results.
Members of mastermind groups routinely team up and address the issues or issues of their participants, using the collected experience, skills and also knowledge of the group.
Many retirees currently have a network that they can take advantage of and build an outstanding mastermind team, By being the group coordinator and facilitator, they can make a great supplementary revenue too.
Depending on the size of the area in which they live, enterprising retirees can begin or help with numerous mastermind teams and charge a premium for the worth of being a member. Mastermind team facilitators can produce between $1,500 to $3,000 monthly per group for simply a few hrs of work.
4. Service-Based Services
Giving services has actually long been a perfect concept for more youthful, active retirees who want to start their own services; nevertheless, familiar options like handyman solutions, tutoring or pet sitting aren’t the only games in the area.
There are lots of alternatives for service-based services, one particularly appropriate for retirees is to give elder care services. Many seniors living by themselves need someone to assist with the tasks of day-to-day living: housekeeping, shopping, errands and food preparation. They also hire people to help out with special projects such as relocating, medical claims assistance and bill paying.”
5. Entrepreneurial Support Services
As the total variety of business owners rises, so does the number of business owners over the age of 50. Why not start a company catering to them?
There is a significant possibility for you to assist new entrepreneurs with structure, handling and marketing their services. While older entrepreneurs have solid core abilities from previous careers, they usually fail on the skills needed to take advantage of their know-how and turn their expertise and abilities right into a profitable service.
So consider just how you can use your abilities in a small company setting. Are you a gifted visuals designer? You may be able to develop logo designs, sales brochures or food selections for a brand-new dining establishment in the area. Do you have strong financial abilities? Probably you can function as a local business instructor or an accountant.
Few business people have the time and know-how needed to handle all the tasks required to keep a business profitable. And filling this need suits aspiring business owners who are also retirees.
Most small business people can’t afford a full-time staff, so this can be a nice way to earn income on a flexible or part-time basis.”
6. Active Living
There are several ways to take advantage of the spreading “active living” philosophy, which is particularly preferred amongst Baby Boomers. Who better to help them than a peer with the expertise to stay in shape and age beautifully? Among the best aspects of beginning a company focused on active living is how imaginative you can be regarding exactly what your service looks like.
The spectrum of participation is rather broad. It could be anything from opening franchises for electric bike shops to being ambassadors for healthy living brands, or running tours and treks to outdoor locations.”
These types of businesses not only work well as a way to bring in some money after you retire from your career, but they also help others maintain their health as they age. Be creative and use what you know to find your niche in the growing active living marketplace.
To Your Success!

This causes them to jump from many products, courses, and systems, trying to produce the sensation of progress, never actually obtaining anything, only pushing themselves further into the hole.

They understand that the more confused you are, the more probable you are to acquire more products>>>You could quite easily find yourself in the hole quickly.
Now, while many people recognized the lesson entirely, and fully relate with it, for a few it had not been what they were searching for.
For a few, they are always searching for one more option.

A Closer Review of the Strengths and Weaknesses of…
A Closer Look at the Strengths and Weaknesses of Namecheap as a Domain Registrar and Web Host
Namecheap is a company that offers several types of services, from web hosting to registering domain names. The company name gives the impression that what they’re offering is inexpensive. However, it also makes many people wonder about their reliability and trustworthiness. There is no shortage of companies offering domain registration and hosting solutions so it’s crucial that you take your time looking at what each company is offering. And in the event that you’re thinking of buying a domain or hosting your web site with Namecheap, this article should give you an idea as to what kind of company you can expect to deal with.
While not many people are aware that Namecheap offers web hosting, you’ll find that its basic and reseller packages are affordable. If you want to venture into the hosting business, you can do so by getting reseller hosting. This package is perfect for small business, and particularly if creating websites for local businesses is your primary job. Reseller hosting can be expensive, but Namecheap offers some good deals on this, starting at under $20 per month. You can also take the reseller hosting for a test drive for a month and pay just $1. A reseller account isn’t recommended if you really just want one web site. However, it’s the most cost-effective option for you if you see yourself buying several domains and putting up many sites.
Namecheap periodically has discount coupons too.
If your web site is a business site, you’re sure to need content and a steady supply of it. Namecheap offers RichContent, a service that provides access to relevant content. RichContent is super easy to use. In fact, all you need to do is past the widgets on your site and visitors will see content that’s relevant to the theme of your web site.
RichContent is compatible with any site, whether it’s a regular site or one that’s powered by WordPress. Take note, though, that RichContent isn’t a free service, it’s just made available to Namecheap customers for free for 30 days. After the trial period is over, you can decide whether or not to continue using the service or not. RichContent isn’t an expensive service, though. RichContent helps keep your site fresh with new content. It’s actually a cost effective investment because you only will spend a low fee to keep the content flowing to your site and without you having to really lift a finger to create content.
We recommend purchasing your domain name through Namecheap and hosting your site with a company other than Namecheap. Namecheap’s reputation as a domain registrar is excellent, but as a web host, it’s gotten mixed reviews. They have been registering domains since 2000, but only started out as a web host a few years ago. Because they’re new at web hosting, Namecheap hasn’t really proven itself as a good web host and thus doesn’t have a lot of customers yet. Do a search online and you’ll see some customers complaining about up-time and speed. Hopefully, Namecheap will eventually emerge as a leading web host, but for now using them for this is something of a risk.
Namecheap is well regarded, particularly as a domain name registrar. Its web hosting service was introduced only recently so it’s still a largely untested in terms of reliability and when you compare it with the more established web hosting companies. This is why many of its customers host their sites with other companies after buying their domains from Namecheap. If you’re looking for a domain registrar, web host, or both, this review of Namecheap should give you an idea if the company is something well worth considering.
