Websites Aren’t Free. So Wix. Please STFU.

Every time I sit down to watch TV, I see commercials from website dealers like Wix.com. It’s easy to notice that they are a cheap website provider. They feature these slick-looking sites in their commercials and they demonstrate how the system is very user-friendly with no knowledge of code required in a drag and drop-based CMS.

99 Tactics Every Marketer Should Know

It’s funny to think that there was once a time when TV, newspaper, and radio ads were the most powerful forms of marketing. Today, there are so many more options out there to help brands build relationships and grow sales. Put simply, we’ve advanced. I find it odd that some companies choose to invest in only one particular tactic like, say, online banner ads and expect to see results. Don’t get me wrong; PPC can be a great form of marketing, but you aren’t going to move the needle with just one effort. It’s just not possible. Instead, you need […]
