• I have a lot of respect for people who stick their necks out and become entrepreneurs. They start a business on nothing more than an idea and a lot of passion.

  • Mobilegeddon is the gift that keeps on giving. Orthe curse that keeps small business owners up at night. Google said this week that it will be placing even more emphasis on mobile as a ranking signal – even more than it did in 2015 when it sent businesses and SEO experts into a small frenzy.

  • Today is an exciting day at C2 Connections' world headquarters in Spokane. Today is the day we implement Conversion Zones for mobile advertising – a new way to track the effectiveness of mobile online advertising.

And did you here about what Facebook wants to do with news outlets?

  • Every year around this time – November to December-ish – bloggers everywhere take a few minutes to jot down their thoughts about where their industry is headed. Who can blame us, really?

  • If there ever was a time to get your business started with some form of targeted online advertising, now is that time. Especially if you are an advertiser on TV.

  • A recent statistic about the importance of properly built mobile websites hit me like a ton of bricks the other day. Yes, we all know that in the marketing world "it's all about mobile". It's been like that for at least the past three years, right? But stop and consider just how powerful mobile has become.
