Unique and delicious Walnut Burgers have recently joined the 1% for the Planet team! Walnut Burgers are a great vegetarian and healthy alternative to one of America’s classics. We at The Greenfield Group are friends with the Jenkin’s family and highly suggest trying this burger out. We have have personally had these nutty dishes a few times and think they taste great.
Have you heard of Bitcoin? It is the digital online payment network/finite currency that has been all over the news lately. It has very interesting properties, one of which being that there is no central authority. If you want to learn more about Bitcoin, feel free to watch this short video HERE, but beware, it is a bit confusing.
As an internet marketer, it is likely you will hear the question “what is my login for my Facebook page?”. It is also likely that will spend the next few minutes explaining to them how there is no login, but rather managers of specific pages.
Instead of logging into your business pages directly, you log into your personal Facebook profile that was previously made a manager.
Setting up a new business is fairly straight forward now, and easy to make admins. You can add as many admins as you would like, as well as be the admin on many different pages. Just follow the instructions found HERE. Most internet marketers actually prefer this method to the method Twitter uses, which you must log in to each account separately. Life is made a lot easier when you are managing a dozen company’s accounts.
In today’s technological world, just about every type of business should have a strong online presence. “Online presence” can man a variety of different things to different people and businesses. This is when you must decide, “should I do my search engine optimization in-house or hire a consultant?”
This question is not specifically an easy one to answer, unless you are personally an internet marketer. Assuming you do not know the inns and outs of online advertising and marketing, these are some of the important factors you should consider:
After spending some time utilizing search engine optimization techniques, one thing will become clear: the most productive thing you can do is come up with content others want to read. Sure you should edit your META and ALT tags, but if you want to help promote your site to it’s full potential, you need content other people actually want to look at.
So you are 6 months into content management, cranking out a blog once a week and not understanding why you aren’t seeing the ranking results you are hoping for. You check your WordPress blog daily and notice there are never any pingbacks, comments, or social sharing for any of these blogs. Why is this?
Bike to Work Day for 2013 is Friday, May 17th. This event is to help promote alternatives to driving a gas guzzling car to work every day and is always held on the third Friday in May, National Bike Month. For one day out of the year, individuals can take the time to get some exercise while learning about a new way to commute to work. Not only is biking to work healthier for the environment, it will keep a lot more money in your pocket.
Since Rob is out on an Across America cycling adventure, and I ride my bike to work a few times a week, we suggest that everyone gets the opportunity to sign up for this great event. Not only will this be a fun change of pace for the average commuter, if you register and track your trip, you get entered for a chance to win some great prizes, including a new bike.
There are pit stop locations, corporate challenges, maps, registration and much more information at the Bike to Work page.
If you do not live in San Diego, or even California, we still suggest you take this as an opportunity to ditch the four wheels for two and have some fun while doing it.
While Rob is cycling out in the middle of the country on his Bamboosero bike, I will be riding alongside the 8 on the great OB bike path when riding to work May 17th. I hope to see you right along side me!
When Rob recently left for his Off the Grid Across America cycling adventure, he had to make sure he still stayed connected to the outside world. Aside from the obvious need for electricity to power the camera equipment, Rob needs to be able to use his laptop and cell phone as required. Without the ability to keep in touch with employees and clients, The Greenfield Group would likely start to deteriorate. Luckily, there is a company like Goal Zero that exists, allowing for Rob to stay off the grid, but not out of the loop.
Goal Zero specializes in easy-to-use portable solar power products. While most solar panels are used on homes and other stationary devices, Goal Zero makes it possible for you to charge your electronics whether you are tailgating, in an emergency, or cycling across the nation.
If you are new to building websites and don’t have a large budget, it is likely you will use a “drag and drop” style site builder. As compared to static HTML pages or websites built on WordPress, site builders such as Wix and Weebly use visuals rather than coding to make the experience as user friendly as possible.
While most web developers would frown on the use of either of these sites, they serve a very important function. Not all small business owners have an understanding of coding a website, nor have the thousands of dollars needed to have a custom built site. These “drag and drop” site builders make designing a professional looking website cheap and extremely easy compared to their counterparts. They also keep web developers on their toes, so that they do not overcharge clients. Though we suggest WordPress to anyone with the knowledge, time, and resources to build a site professionally, we will take a look at a comparison of the two “drag and drop” site builders: Wix and Weebly.
