When we first created our online marketing company, we made our website in a matter of days, which is why it was never very attractive and did not get us high conversion rates. We were in need of a website at the time, and due to the large number of clients, we were not able to create a high quality website.

Now, that we have hired new people to help us with our clients, we are finally able to work on redesigning our website to for a higher visitor-to-client conversion rate.

Redesigning a website for higher conversions is not an easy task because a balance must be achieved to keep our SEO rating up and at the same time make the website attractive and professional enough to get our visitors interested in using our marketing and website services.

Here are the key points to focus on when rede...

Need Fresh Ideas? Why Not Travel?

Summer is synonymous with outdoor activities, which requires more personal time and less time to focus on your business to make it grow strong and prepared for an ever-changing environment.

We have seen the business world change dramatically in the last few years. In order to keep moving ahead, your company needs to keep fresh and dynamic products or services.

While you try to live in a changing world, your business, finance and personal life need to adjust to these new changes as well. Make sure you evolve, move forward with new ideas, new markets and better strategies, not only for yourself but most importantly for your customers.

Some people choose to travel abroad to better themselves by learning new ideas and oversee different projects...

Forget Whistling… Play Poker While You Work!

When I hang out with my friends or visit family, I always get the same reaction, “You get to work from home? You’re so lucky!”

Well, yes, I suppose I am. Living in Cleveland, Ohio, there are hundreds of reasons why working from the comforts of my own home would be considered “lucky” by most accounts. Many of those reasons involve the weather. Plus, I don’t have to deal with travel, office politics or sick days. Did I mention the weather?

But at the same time it is still work, especially working for a new company (Blind Monkey Media). I don’t lounge around watching TV all day, I sit in front of my computer like any other white-collar worker and put in my time.

Demystifying Photography

I’m working hard on the BlindMonkeyMedia website, as well as a few other projects, but in my spare time I really enjoy photography.

So does this mean that the latest point-and-shoot cameras will do? Of course they will.  Most professional photographers scoff at point-and-shoots as if they are toys, but don’t mind them.

The only issue with point-and-shoot is the flash...
