Managing over 100k business listings has created some pretty odd usernames.  Generally the login username is the businesses phone number or based upon their business name, but sometimes that isn't available, so something else is automatically assigned.  This can lead to some pretty non-intuitive, non-memorable usernames.

Did you know that you can change a clients username?  By sending a request * Member with a message like change username to samIam to make a modification.  It will get done automatically by the system and the business will be able to immediately login with the new username.

Impressive to see this local business advertisement on YouTube from +The Roofing Center.  See the video here: Discount roofing material

While the video is greatly authentic, I was equally impressed to see the well designed website eroofs.org, social activity https://twitter.com/sanvalle and even their own mobile app (iOS and Android!) but they do need some online help:

Here's the #OnlineBusinessReview consulting-

1) Business listing syndication.  The listing (i.e. Google+ Local Business Listing) should be reclaimed and updated.  It also contains outdated information (the website URL http://eliteroofsupply.com is redirecting to a different domain).

2) YouTube Video Optimization
  This video is authentic and gets a good message across; that might be adequate.  But this is costing money.  A YouTube ^paid ad^ should have a few bells and whistles like: 
  intro / ending graphic
  overlay with their business logo
  streaming text in footer for their tagline or primary search phrase, name address phone #NAP , and the website URL.

3) Reviews - In addition to the Google listing being unclaimed, it is a ghosttown - there are 0 Reviews for the business.  Reputation Wave to get 5-10 customer ratings would highlight their business listing in Google. 

4) Highlighting their Google search results.  Since their Twitter is being updated regularly, we could establish automatic re-posting of that material on their Google+ Page.

Hopefully this advice makes it to them +Abe Lopez.  Next time we can address at onsite conversions optimization and #SEO .  If there is any question, post it in the comments below.

What would you do if you walked into your office and found 700 balloons packed wall to wall? Well that's exactly what was waiting for our Director of Product Operations, Debra Northart, on her birthday this morning! #HappyBirthday  Debra!

Many of us arrogantly consider the YellowPages book to be a relic of the past, however this year that could be considered a reality.   The YellowPages print giant  +YP ( +YP Advertising ) reports that it's revenues in digital are finally surpassing that of print advertising. 

Taken from their article http://url.localsplash.com/IYPGrowth --
The company formerly known as Yellow Pages has worked hard in recent years to transfer its historical strength – helping consumers find local businesses via large printed books – into a business that’s now booking more than $1 billion in digital revenue.

“Five years ago, 18% of our revenue was digital, and in 2014 it was 44%. Next year it will be over half,” YP Chief Revenue Officer David Lebow said.

“Print is very much in a managed decline,” Lebow said. “Fewer people use the print book, and revenue follows audience. When you have 80 million users a month, ad dollars are going to follow.”

When people search [on YP], 77% of people who search go and contact an advertiser right afterward, and 66% make a purchase after search.

Web presence is actually a hard thing for people to do: a mobile-optimized website, video of their store or location, having up-to-date phone numbers and store hours.

A great video and YouTube channel banner art (cover photo). Notice how the graphic displays well in mobile, desktop and tablet. This can be accomplished by providing optimized media that will resize & crop intelligently so that it didn't appear distorted or stretched.

Kudos to +Rick Kuck  #digitalmedia

Open Internet means that ISPs can't block traffic (e.g. VOIP, Skype...) a gray area is if they can prefer/prioritize traffic e.g. faster for services they monetize.

Super disappointing. Nothing promised has been delivered on. The first day of the contract they took action and nothing has happened since. For the first three weeks they listed my business in the incorrect city (three hours from my business). There was never any mention of that city so I don't know how this happened. After I told them by phone and Email about the error, no action was taken. It took another phone call to finally have them change it within my account, but still nothing further has happened. I really wish I read reviews about this scam in advance. If a company has one star out of 153 reviews, they should be shut down.

I wish I could do 4.5 stars. 5 is too much but 4 is too little. My wife and I opened up our Mexican restaurant about 7 months ago. We were called by a polite young man named Qassim. He explained exactly what they could do for us. Sounded too good to be true. I was then transferred to Israel Vargas who went over pricing and options. He was kind and extremely informative. I saw all the negative reviews after signing up and was very nervous. I will tell you right now Israel took great care of us and we were on the first page of Google (cell phones too) in about 9 weeks. Trust me I was checking. Also they built me a beautiful website to attract people. Business is great and we remain on the first page for multiple keywords. Thanks Israel!!! Would have given you 5 stars but you're a Dodger fan! Seriously thanks guys.

We had the absolute WORST experience with Local Splash. I wish I hadn't fallen for their high pressured sales pitch. We are a new small business and they completely took advantage of us. They're customer service is AWEFUL and RUDE! Don't waste your time OR money!

If you could give a negative star they get em all, the sales guy says anything he wants to get you on the hook. This place is a FRUAD, the dont even offer refunds. I was told my website and company would be at the top of google by the end of the week... two weeks later nothing. I call the say i agreex to no refund policy which only crooks have that kind of policy. If i was paid to build a house and its a cardboard box instead of a mansion then i go to jail... exactly where these guys need to be. Total Scam

I Advertise with them salesman are on commission so they will never tell you how fraud I local splash are. After paying them I call my bank and dispute it my charges. Also report them to BBB and they already under Federal Investigation. Good thing is to Dispute from your bank like I did and got all my money back. Never give them your checking account info because they know with checking account you can dispute. Watch out from theses Frauds.

Got me on first page as promised both Google and Bing built a great website but I made clear I only wanted to try it for one month. Got billed yesterday 199 which bounced my account costing me more. If they had simply called me to ask if I wanted another month I would have said yes and transferred money in my biz account. Still waiting on their reply
