Your Customer Is Not Your Enemy | Ecommerce Customer Service

http://marketingartfully.com/2016/05/10/your-customer-is-not-your-enemy/

If you come from a place of wanting to please your customers and give them a great buying experience, then you are probably going to have less a-hole customers. Just my opinion.

7 Real Estate Marketing ToDos | #RealEstate #Marketing Ideas

http://marketingartfully.com/2016/05/03/7-real-estate-marketing-todos-real-estate-marketing-ideas/

Real estate marketing is full of “could dos” and “should dos”. In fact there are a BUNCH of different things that you could do, but which will work best for your business (or market)? We work with LOTS of agents and have a good idea of what will work for different situations. With that in mind, here are our top seven real estate marketing ideas (in no particular order). We are not going to include the lame-o Facebook propaganda that you hear from every other marketing “expert”

How To Brighten Your Product Photography For Free W/O Photoshop! 

http://marketingartfully.com/2016/04/07/brighten-your-product-photography-for-free/

Today’s post is for all my Ecommerce peeps. We all know how important having “light and bright” product photography is, but sometimes it can seem like getting those beautiful pictures is impossible. Additionally I have found tons of info about using Photoshop for editing and yes it is great (I use it myself), but some people are just not at the place where they can make that investment yet.

How To Sell Your Digital Products w/ Amazing Product Photography

http://marketingartfully.com/2016/04/04/how-to-sell-digital-products-with-amazing-product-photography/

This product photography post came about as many of my best posts do, because I was interested in seeing what best in class shops were doing in their product photos.

Selling digital products is not the same as selling a physical product. Oftentimes there is no “actual” pictures that you can take so you have to improvise.

Why Using A Full Letter Sized Business Planner Is The Best Way To Go

http://paperlypeople.com/why-using-a-full-letter-sized-business-planner-is-the-best-way-to-go/

If you are a busy professional like me, you probably have tried all kinds of planners before! Tiny planners and wide planners, cute planners, oh and nevermind the notebooks. Moleskines and Erin Condrens, Dyan Reaveley and all the other ones out there too!

How Curiosity Can Get You Out Of A Slump | Entrepreneur Marketing Mindset 

http://marketingartfully.com/2016/04/25/how-curiosity-get-you-out-slump/

So how can curiosity get you out of a slump? By rekindling your creativity. Sort of like when those little embers are burning on your fire starter and you gently blow across them to get a real flame to spark. You are functionally using interest in something new or different to firestart your stalled enthusiasm.

How to segregate a multi niche website! 

http://marketingartfully.com/2016/04/06/segregate-multi-niche-website-advanced-blogging/

When you are doing advanced blogging it can seem like an un-overcomable challenge to segregate your audiences when you have a multi niche website. At least it seemed that way to me. I have a number of distinct different audiences (Writers, Realtors and Ecommerce or Etsy Sellers) as well as a number of key topics that I talk about like blogging, Pinterest, SEO and Product Photography.

Tailwind Versus BoardBooster | Pinterest Marketing Tools

http://marketingartfully.com/2016/03/30/tailwind-versus-board-booster-pinterest-marketing-tools/

Today we are going to look at the differences between two different Pinterest Marketing Tools, Tailwind and Board Booster. Each does the scheduling and reporting of automated Pinterest pins in a very different way. I am using BoardBooster on two of my accounts and Tailwind on one other account. Neither company has paid to be included in this review and I pay for my monthly subscriptions. There are affiliate links for both products included. If you sign up I will get a little bit of money to help offset the cost of researching posts like this one! Thank you so much for helping to support a hard working blogger…

We have always been very happy with Tires Plus. We have our three cars serviced there and have never felt like they are taking advantage of us or suggesting work that is not needed. Just today Chad fit us in when our Jeep wouldn't start at all. Now he couldn't guarantee a time because of the circumstances, but they are about 4 days less than the Jeep dealership. They are a pleasure to work with!

The entire process with Dr. Fix It was great. From the first call everyone was super friendly and helpful. Drilon (our technician) was polite and really knew his stuff, going above and beyond to try and fix everything without overcharging or doing a hard upsell to a million other things. We will be using them again.
