    How has the Internet made your business more/less profitable?

    Last updated 7 years ago

    There are many inventions/ideas that come along over time that change the landscape of the business world.  The Internet and Search Engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo just may go down as the most famous.  Where else can you spend your advertising dollars with near 100% going towards your target audience?  TV wont get you there, radio hits too broad and the yellow page books will be a distance memory in a few years.

    So here is the question of the day Small Business Owners - How has the Internet impacted your bottom line (both good and bad)?  Give examples please.

    John Wooden was GENIUS!

    Last updated 7 years ago

    UCLA Hall of Fame basketball coach John Wooden said a lot of memorable things during his 99 years of life.  Here are a few of my favorites:

    • "Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do."
    • "The most important key to achieving great success is to decide upon your goal and launch, get started, take action, move."
    • "Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming."
    • "Never mistake activity for achievement."
    • "Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are."
    • and my personal Wooden favorite, "Don't measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but what you should have accomplished with your ability."

    I always enjoy reading Seth's blogs.

    There is a saying that common sense is not always that common.  Seth Godin is someone I follow because he flat out gets it right with common sense/thought provoking content that has value to the marketer in all of us.

    Black Friday and Cyber Monday expected to be good for retailers.

    Retailers are spending more money on online advertising this holiday season as more and more shoppers go online.  Online orders are also up as well which is a good sign of consumer confidence turning towards days of old.  What does this mean for you as a local Baltimore/Washington DC metro area business owner?  It means the time is right to increase your online marketing efforts.  Your customers are online.  You should be as well.
