"If your business is not on the Internet, then your business will be out of business." —Bill Gates

If you're reading this here and now, then you understand what Gates was suggesting. Your business is online in someway, for sure. But we can extend the quote to include additional necessities in marketing any business today.

Besides a website, you need to be actively engaging in social media, blogging, creating visual content and utilizing video marketing.

In what areas do you need to improve to better market your business?

"Your logo is a referent, a symbol, a reminder of your brand."

Seth Godin (and many others) would tell you to spend more time, money and effort on building your brand than worrying about your logo.

(For the record, we'd suggest spending more than $5 and refrain from crowdsourcing your logo, but agree big-picture brand is more important in the long run.)

Everything you do — or don't do — will build/distract from your brand.

Read Now (it'll only take a second as Seth is always brief):

I Have to Update Social HOW Many Times!?

Google+, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and more. That's a lot to manage and we've failed to name them all.

Some social experts will tell you go deep on 1 or 2 social networks, others claim it's important (or rather crucial) to "be everywhere."

What do you think? We've done our research and have our opinions -- and have made recommendations to specific clients. But is there a happy medium?

We are putting together some blog posts and would love to gather more perspectives.

** h/t to +Kim Garst ... We took this screenshot on her blog in a reply to a reader's comment on her post, 17 Killer Facebook Post Ideas for Small Business Owners. We added the highlight.

Avocado Tell You Something...

Besides helping clients build brands and get noticed online, our side #hustle at +HagerRusso in 2014 was creating a new line of guacamole tees and launching Avocado Shirt Co.

After some fun (eating #guacamole ), putting some ideas on paper and getting up and running on social media, we enjoyed a successful run on +Kickstarter.

If you're a fellow #avocado lover, be sure to check out the site and our official Facebook Page or follow +Avocado Shirt Co. here on Google+. We have lots of exciting things planned for 2015!

If you have an idea and would like help with branding your startup or with strategic marketing -- or just want to know more about our crowdfunding success, give us a shout. We'd love to chat.
