Below you will find my personal reviews on 35 small business tools for today’s entrepreneur.

A Quick and Easy Formula for Writing Clickable Blog Posts...

How much time do you spend coming up with your blog titles? 5 minutes? 10 minutes? Less? Do you choose a title before you write a post, while you are writing it, or afterwards? Do you have a set strategy or framework for choosing the perfect title, or does it vary depending on your subject and your mood?

While there is no formula for writing the “perfect” headline, there are some strategies that can give you the best chance of having your social media followers and blog readers actually click on your posts. This post will outline my quick and easy formula for writing clickable blog titles!

Do you have a sales funnel in place? Your sales funnel is critically important to your online marketing, as it gives you a predictable way to nurture your leads into prospects, and your prospects into customers. And yet despite its importance, many business owners don’t take the time to think through the process.

Think about how a funnel is used in cooking: Because it’s wide at the top, it’s easy to pour in ingredients. As these ingredients fall down through the funnel, they accumulate at the bottom, and then slowly trickle into the container below.

In the same way, your sales funnel moves all your leads through your sales process, moving qualified prospects further down the process, and eventually resulting in SALES – the very bottom of your funnel.

So, how can you use #SocialMedia   to help with this process? This post will look at the top ways you can drive traffic to your sales funnel using social media.

Your sales funnel is extremely important to your business, so why not drive traffic to it through social media? I've got 5 ways to do just that!

My son, who is a Freshman at FCGU and has no experience with getting his oil changed just texted me and asked me if it's normal to pay $120 for an oil change. I, of course, said NO! But that is exactly what happened. This Jiffy Lube takes advantage of students who do not know any better and charges $120 for a regular oil change. DISGRACEFUL!
