internet marketing small business2015 is coming. It is time to think about your website and your online marketing.

According to the classic movie, “Back To The Future Part II,” we should all be flying around on Hover Boards real soon.

It’s a joke around the office.

We do a good amount of “brand new website” builds still.

Most of them are for new businesses just getting up and running.

These guys and girls really “get it.”

The thinking is… “I’m starting a business, I need a website.”

Our web design division loves those thoughts.

But the joke is when we come across an established business.

One that has been around for five years or more.

Our thought is…

“Really? It’s 2015, we’re all gonna be flying around on hover boards real soon… and you don’t have a website?”

We get a laugh. But it’s really no laughing matter.

And what about old and outdated websites?

How about a “less than professional online presence?”

No laughing matter either!

The web presence is the glue that holds all of the other marketing together.

Most “leads” – be they… referrals or folks that find a business through other means will check out the online presence.

That presence must be accurate.

It’s 2015. Time to step it up.

Other 2015 musts…


No sign of slowing.

Facebook keeps improving on their ad service.

Facebook has some serious data on their users to make ads relevant and effective.

If you’re in the B2C market – Facebook is a must.


Everyone is glued to their smartphones.

A “responsive” website that works on all screens is key.

A Mobile App might make sense depending on your business.

I mean… why not have a presence on the device your customers and clients are glued to?

Hover Boards and all this stuff should be on your radar screen as we close out this year.

Take some action.

Reach out with some questions.
