Announcing the launch of Ally Digital.

With more than six years in my field, I'm a student and a teacher on all topics related to it. My peers respect my advice, some call me an expert. I've built a successful agency offering comprehensive digital marketing services.

This time, I want to help small business by providing affordable services and sticking around for the long term. So I'm using the best of what I've learned, and the best tools, to provide small businesses with the opportunities of the big guys.

This is not about the big accounts. No problem with those, but I'm for the real small businesses. The mom-and-pop local retailer. The electrician. The artist. The food truck. The dentist. The small local chain of cleaners. The little spa. The bed and breakfast. You get the idea.

On that mission, I'm building Ally Digital.

But I can't do this alone. I've been blessed with many friends and professional acquaintances from all walks of life. And many ask me how they can help. That's easy. Please tell a business owner about this.

Tell them Ally Digital offers affordable subscription-based internet marketing services.

Tell them about Ally Local, probably the most important service they're missing. It's a combination of Local SEO (local search engine optimization), Directory Business Listings, and Social Media and Reviews (Reputation) Management tools for local retail and service area businesses. 
Ally Local is particularly helpful to retail businesses (those that benefit from walk-in traffic, like stores, restaurants, automotive service, cleaners, dentists, chiropractors, spas, etc.) and service-area businesses (like electricians, plumbers). ($75/mo.)

Tell them about Ally Sites, the last website they'll ever need.
Ally Sites – Affordable, agency-quality small business website design, development,  hosting, and support, as a subscription service. ($95/mo.)

Thanks for caring enough to read.

How do you know if you have a little more left in you? You push harder. How can you tell if “you’ve gone too far”? Something breaks. Therein lies the conundrum: fear of breaking something –a bone, equipment, emotionally– can stop us one step short of our greatest successes. But we don’t always break. We’re, More…

Sweet tool with great integration with Google Drive
 

We've been testing this quietly for a while, but now we're really excited to be able to announce you can finally organise your Coggles right in Google Drive!

Either install our Chrome app (http://bit.ly/coggle-chrome-app), or use the link at the bottom of your list of Coggles to set things up.

Once activated, any new Coggles you create (including copies) that don't belong to an Organisation will show up right in your Google Drive.

I'm basing this review on my experience as a buyer, yes, but mostly as a user of their service. I've always taken my Outback there for regular maintenance and service. I like that they treat me like I bought an expensive european sedan. They're prompt with service and do quality work. It doesn't hurt I can have free coffee and wi-fi,work while I wait, and be out in less than a couple of hours. Austin Subaru's white-glove service is my favorite thing about them.

This is my go-to coffee shop in central Austin. It's small, and can get pretty crowded, but the ambiance and quality food make up for it. The staff is laid back, and the bathrooms are spotless. I regularly use it as my halfway point to meet people from north Austin (I'm way south). They're usually really pleased with it as well.

The most amazing thing about Elizabeth street cafe is that once you try it, you don't get why it is as affordable as it is. This is gourmet stuff. From the banh mi, to the brunch plates. Simply amazing. I have heard weekend evenings can be a little crazy. Well, make it a point to go at some other time, it's worth it.

After I was scheduled for a photo shoot I started feeling apprehensive about the whole thing. Self-doubt hit hard that morning. Fortunately, Korey has a way of naturally making one feel at ease. I'm very pleased with the results, but it was the experience I recommend the most.

I realize once you read “pizza from convenience store” finding the appeal if difficult. Do it anyways, these guys are hard-working quality fanatics. I don't repeat my take-out places often, this one I do, even being a little out of the way for me. All their pies are great.
