Good resources for images!

They say an image speaks a thousand words. Nowhere is this truer than on the World Wide Web.  The WWW was simply text until browsers enabled us to add all the eye candy.

Your blog posts, your marketing materials, and your website all need images.  As a small business owner, you probably think that photos come with an expensive price tag, but they don’t have to.  Below are places to find images for every small business need.

5 Ways To Get 10x More Retweets On Twitter

We have a pretty good idea of Twitter best practices: post regularly, don’t overuse hashtags, keep your tweets short enough for retweets, etc. We even know that a good mix of images and video will help boost engagement.

Yet every few months, I like to look back through my Twitter analytics to see which content performed best and I’m surprised at what I find. Some pieces of content posted to Twitter get 5 to 10 times my typical amount of retweets!

Good read on how online shopping has changed over the years. 

Back in 2005, few of us had high-speed Internet access at home and online holiday shopping was done on the sly during work hours. The first day back at work after Thanksgiving weekend was when online holiday shopping began in earnest. When we first noticed the trend, we coined the phrase “Cyber Monday” and the rest is history.

Have you eaten in Downtown Roanoke lately? If not, head to Awful Arthur's! Check out the Raw Bar Specials, especially the crab legs! Delicious!! If seafood is not your thing, they have sandwiches and burgers, plus a good kid's menu! The only place serving Budweiser on tap in Downtown Roanoke, so head out with your friends and enjoy!

I can easily recommend her based on these interactions and getting to know Kim. She is a true professional that "knows her stuff" and can back it up!! Get to know Kim and check out her business.
