Building Online Marketing Strategies for Small Businesses by +Moz 

"Despite the various industries, locales, and personalities, one of the prevailing similarities between them is that small businesses often don't position their company or use the web as effectively as they could. While this is partially due to the time and resource crunch small business owners feel, it's also because, beyond building a website, they don't know where to begin. 

It doesn't have to be so overwhelming though. This article will walk you through the preliminary strategies small business should know about."

1. Define the brand

2. Review the website content and language

3. Develop overarching marketing strategy

Depends on where your audience is. Where would someone who is looking for a shopping service be? Also, I think you need to think about demographics as well as the kinds of people who would seek out your service. Ads for young and busy families should be placed in different places than ads for aging seniors who can't get out to shop. 

I would say the internet is a good idea, but why not at grocery stores? Sometimes they have ad boards or information boards. Flyers out on the street might also be a good idea since you live within a neighborhood. Also, Craigslist isn't popular for most ads but because it allows you to post for neighborhoods and cities that might be a great and free option as well.

Is branding important for your business?

Branding means not just the logo or any graphic element or any graphic symbol of it. When you think about the brand you start thinking about the whole customer experience…everything whether be it your logo or website, or your presence in the social media, the way you start answering the phone, or the way your staff caters to the customers and all. Henceforth, it can be said that Branding is a well thought out, planned strategy that promotes recognition. A #branding is what sets your company part from the competition. A strong brand gains more referrals and customer base and henceforth, branding is important.

I have been purchasing gently used designer brand clothing for years and turning around and selling them for a profit to an online store.  I finally decided to hold an event so all of my current finds could be in one place at one time. With the exception of facing a snowstorm, it's been a wonderful experience thus far.  I can see it building momentum and having a small legit business on my hands.  Here's a few pics of what I put together. 
Today, I opened my doors to the first ever ThrifyMissy open closet event!  Open closet event, what's that you ask? Think boutique name tagged clothing, pinterest style, and THRIFTYMISSY prices! FUN!!!!   I thought I would...

Machine Readable Cataloging (MARC) The Google's Knowledge Graph and How It Will Impact SEO

Here are a couple of great articles that tie into one another about how Google's Knowledge Graph uses Machine Readable Cataloging and what criteria Google's Knowledge Graph uses to pull in data it displays. 

Can tell you that the second article gets a bit "real" but it does have some really great information on how the Knowledge Graph does and will continue to impact Search Engine Optimization.

What Can Businesses Do About The Knowledge Graph Dominating Search Results?

http://searchengineland.com/businesses-knowledge-graph-dominating-search-results-215520

Find it fascinating how its own technology is now shaping the ever changing landscape of Search Engine Optimization.
To explain the utility of ­semantic search and linked data, Jeff Penka, director of channel and product development for information management solutions provider Zepheira, uses a simple exercise. Type “Chevy Chase” into Google’s search box, and in addition to a list of links, a panel appears on the right of the screen, displaying photos of the actor, a short bio, date of birth, height, full name, spouses and children, and a short list of movies a...

Are you using #CRM  on the go? Do you find that the mobile CRM platform is lacking key features on the desktop version?

Who are the exceptions to the rule? Base CRM, Salesforce and SugarCRM

Salesforce and SugarCRM, on the other hand, have all of these advanced features on both the mobile and desktop version. The mobile app can be customized differently from the desktop version, so you can include just the features you need to use on the road.

If you don’t need any of those advanced features, however, then we recommend using a more basic system. Salesforce and SugarCRM are not very user friendly and require a lot of set up. Salesforce is also considerably more expensive than Base CRM, coming out to $125/user/month for the Enterprise Edition.

Customers
What do you do to focus on your existing customers?  Here are a couple of very good ideas.  Personally, I focus on #1-3.

Technology has created a new type of gatekeeper—noise. The constant sales emails, social media requests, and text messages generate so much noise that decision makers often delete or ignore them. Because of that, salespeople need a multi-pronged approach to get appointments with decision makers.
