You can't always get what you want...
Or can you? (http://gplus.ly/1f8WFef)

Do you use Genesis? If yes, I want some feedback from you
I'm not a fan of Genesis because frankly its painful to modify and customize so I almost never use it. However, I have several customers that use it and need upgrades and modifications.

That said, I want to know your thoughts about the built in SEO. I've read several articles about how it's not as good as say Yoast SEO. But what do you think? 

Do you opt for an additional plugin to manage your on-page SEO?

Does your company sell one off services or are you looking for long term relationships with customers that keep coming back for more
+Vincent Messina has written a quick and poignant post here about the value of understanding the big picture, selling solutions not products, and the complexity of selling to big business.

Read the original post and comment over there. 
 
Complex Buying Cycles

Here's the thing, I don't come from a background of selling widgets or small dollar value products and services. I come from a background of selling expensive things that require lots of consideration on the part of the buyer.

What that means is, designing a website is cool. Getting some SEO is terrific. Designing a brand is wonderful.

None of it makes a bit of difference when trying to navigate the content requirements for people along a "buying journey" who may or may not have ever considered what you sell as a solution, if you haven't considered every stage of their buying decision.

Think of it this way. ERP is a cross functional sale. To get a deal, you need to appeal to decision makers and their teams across HR, Finance, Sales, Marketing, HR, Operations, Service, Assembly...etc etc.

Each of these functional pillars has leaders who have agendas. In most cases, those agendas are in silos. What that means is that internally, no one agrees, and in fact, in many cases, they don't like each other.

Now, not only do they have different agendas, they have different immediate needs. Some want to buy now. Some want to postpone. Some don't care at all.

Before a sales pro ever gets to ANY of these people, in what one might construe as a sales cycle, MARKETING needs to be Johnny on the spot with the content that does all the things necessary to get each and every one of these functional teams moving on the same direction.

THEN, by the time a sales cycle starts, the sales pro needs to be adept at blending and building rapport with each and every person that will influence the buying decision.

If you think building a website is complicated, try navigating even a moderately large enterprise at both the executive, middle management and minion level, ACROSS functions.

I get why marketers think they are the bomb. But trust me on this, it doesn't get much more complex than big company selling.

Content marketing is not one dimensional and gets even more multidimensional the more complicated the buying decision is.

Know how to sell. It's what matters.

I love my city
The national news did a short tour of town explaining that Uzhgorod is a beautiful city with a very European feel. 
We love our coffee and it is hard to go more than one block without finding a coffee shop, and each one is better than the last. An amazing rich, creamy cup of cappuccino is about $.50 - $.75.

After enjoying some morning caffeine, a great place to visit the castle which is in the center and on top of the town. It has a wonderful outdoor museum that is an old time Ukrainian village with huts, chapels, and shops. There is also wine tasting in the castle cellars from local producers. We have grapes everywhere in town. Every home has its own mini vineyard (including ours).

The city has the Uzh river running through it and people love to enjoy swimming, fishing, and walking along the banks even right down town. The city boasts one of the most beautiful paths of honey suckle trees in Europe (approx 2 km.) that are in full bloom and run along the river bank. 

The path is adorned with sculptures from a local artist and one of the fun tourist attractions is to follow the map and find all the sculptures. 

An absolute must is stopping by Shtefanyo's (http://shtefanyo.com/?page_id=6) for a piece of Uzhgorod cake, literally the best confectionery delight I have ever tasted! His shop is filled with some of the most amazing treats and a slice of this amazing cake is only about $1 with a full cake only costing $5. 

Beautiful view, atmosphere, food, and people. 

I love my gorod

I know today's research project...
Understand HSTS and HTTPS.
the what, the why, the how...
 
More on Proper HTTPS Implementation

There is a companion protocol called HSTS (HTTPS Strict Transport Security) that you should use in HTTPS implementations.  It instructs the browser to only use HTTPS when communicating with your site.

If you are going to use HTTPS then you should also implement HSTS as well.

However, per the +Barry Schwartz article shared below, +Gary Illyes warns to never implement HSTS without actually having HTTPS on your site.
Last night, Google's Matt Cutts posted on Twitter about HSTS, a protocol that tells web browsers to use HTTPS instead of the HTTP URLs to access your web pages.But shortly after that, Gary Illyes from

~ Wiki HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) is a web security policy mechanism which is necessary to protect secure HTTPS websites against downgrade attacks, and which greatly simplifies protection against cookie hijacking.

 It allows web servers to declare that web browsers (or other complying user agents) should only interact with it using secure HTTPS connections ] and never via the insecure HTTP protocol. HSTS is an IETF standards track protocol and is specified in RFC 6797.

The HSTS Policy  is communicated by the server to the user agent via a HTTP response header field named "Strict-Transport-Security". HSTS Policy specifies a period of time during which the user agent shall access the server in a secure-only fashion.
