Should Your Small Business Get Political?

Stop us if you’ve heard this one: “A politician walks into a nondescript farm-to-table restaurant named after a scarlet female fowl …” Oh, so you already know about Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ quick jaunt to Lexington, Virginia’s Red Hen restaurant?

Mixed Mediums: 4 Types of Content Your Small Business Should Try

Psst. Want to hear a secret? There’s a difference between advertising and marketing. No one is a big fan of advertisements. That’s why we install pop-up blockers, record TV shows so we can skip the commercials and set strict rules on our email programs about what is and isn’t “junk.” Marketing, however, is a horse of a different color.

5 Tools to Make Your Small Business Content “Pop”

Small business content creation can be tough. It’s time-consuming, often frustrating and arguably one of a small business owner’s least favorite jobs. It’s also necessary if you want to succeed. Content is still king, despite what you may have heard -- except now, it has to be great content. No more hiring foreign “writers” who work for pennies but haven’t quite grasped the concept of...
