  • Video Marketing Made Easy

    Video Marketing Made Easy was inspired by video company extraordinaire Blare Media of Fresno, California.

  • Google Isn’t Your Customer, Your Customer Is Your Customer

    At least there is a high probability they aren’t. If they are, well then disregard the specificity and pay attention only to the concepts.

    Well, maybe not new, but certainly worthy. Holistic is a word that has gone through many iterations of societal perception and definition.

Commerce ( or trading) is an age old practice, not only unique to humans, but refined […]

Today the “Web Marketing Made Easy” blog launches, keeping the focus on the “web” “internet” “online” aspect of marketing more so that just marketing in general.
