Hilarious take on the jargon we hear far too often..and maybe even use ourselves? I admit I'm guilty of a few infractions.

There's one for sure that needs to be banished from our professional vocabulary: "disrupter." I'm not sure why, but that one really annoys me. Which are your biggest pet peeves?

Well that's a surprise! Tried my coffee black today and actually like it this way.

How do you take your morning brew?

If and when I have it,  with a little raw sugar (I know, not proud). When I'm treating myself, a little sugar and steamed raw milk.

Approaching buyer personas in this way could really help whoever writes your content.

"Yay" to #4 and its point that info such as marital status, number of kids, etc. really isn't very helpful unless you're selling products/services for which those things matter (ex., cars, homes, sports equipment...).

I'm holding onto this one so I can share it with clients who are working on their personas.

Do you have buyer personas defined for your biz? What was your approach in building them?

Writing, editing, proofreading...they are not the same.

And they require different skillsets.

Not all writers are good editors or proofreaders. Not all editors are good writers or proofreaders. And not all proofreaders are good writers or editors.

I've wanted to write a post on this topic for a long, long time--and I finally got around to it!

Our dog has been a patient with Hope and Dr. Shanley (a dermatologist) since July of this year. While our general vet was baffled by the symptoms Luna was exhibiting, Dr. Shanley diagnosed her quickly and got her on a treatment plan that has improved her condition immensely. Dr. Shanley is personable, funny, compassionate, and has top level expertise in his specialty. The dermatology nurses are also top notch and are masters of communication. They field our calls and emails promptly when we have questions and they email test results and instructions to keep us in the know. We are extremely pleased with the services at Hope Veterinary Specialists, and more importantly, Luna feels at home and at ease there. The services there are not inexpensive, but you truly do get what you pay for at Hope.

I'm thrilled with my new website by 1 Sky Media! John Oppenheimer was highly collaborative (and patient) as I figured out what I wanted. He freely offered his expertise and gave wonderful suggestions and recommendations as we discussed the site design and functionality. I've gotten many compliments on my website - and my logo (which John designed, too.) The site has helped me build my brand, showcase what I do, and attract new clients and readers. I highly recommend 1 Sky Media to anyone looking for a website developer/designer who is skilled at both the artistic and technical aspects of creating a site.
