Well, after setting up some SEO fundamentals such as filling in Meta tags, adding keyword rich content, setting up Webmaster tools to gain further insight, and a variety of other best practices, clients may ask - “How come my site doesn’t show at the top of Google search results?”.

It’s safe to say that the way consumers find businesses today is drastically different than what it was 5 years ago, let alone 15-20 years ago. It’s hard to remember the days of browsing through your local phone book, newspaper, or magazine to find a local business, product, or service in your area.

Digital Marketing / June 25, 2015

Live chat has been around for many years and is used all across the web. Most commonly you find it being used in consumer-type websites for customer support purposes.
