My short answer is ‘no’.
Let me explain.Continue reading
If you want to play in the internet marketing game for the long haul, you’re going to need to know how to deal with tire kickers.
They’re kinda like conspiracy theorists…they run with the mantra ‘The Truth is Out There…’
“The Kennedy Assassination was a cover-up!”
“9-11 was an inside job!”

Here’s one I get…just about everyday…’I Want to Start a Small Business But Have No Money.’
*sigh* … because of this, I might have to do a weekly post and video on this very subject.

We’ve all heard moans, groans…and the whining and the bitching: ‘The Facebook Page Reach Decline has killed my page’!
It’s true. The reach on your Facebook Page has slowly declined to the point where it’s almost zero. In fact, I’ve heard numbers that suggest that Facebook’s average organic reach in 2017 is about 1% for pages on the social behemoth.

‘This is an injustice!!’ I hear you bark. ‘You’re making me pay to reach MY people’!Continue reading
