Happy Thanksgiving from Pole Position Marketing

Happy Thanksgiving

It’s crazy that it’s Thanksgiving already. Where has this year gone?

Thanksgiving is one holiday I really look forward to, though, and not just because I love to eat :) I have so much to be thankful for: A loving and ever-merciful Lord, an amazing family, a successful business and a wonderful Pit Crew.

While I strive to be thankful everyday, I relish this special day to thank God and everyone in my life. That includes you, our readers, customers and friends. May you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and blessed rest of the year.

Technical Do’s and Don’ts for Your Mobile-Friendly Site

How to make your website mobile friendly

By now, you know that your website should be mobile friendly. Not only is Google increasingly favoring mobile-friendly sites, but you will also have a hard time keeping mobile users on your site if it isn’t usable from their devices.

If you are like a lot of people, the “techie” stuff involved with making your site mobile can be daunting. But it’s not as hard as it sounds.

A Look on the Bright Side This 4th of July

4th of July

As we celebrate the long 4th of July weekend (shouldn’t it always be on a weekend?), I can’t help but wonder what the Founding Fathers would think of where we now are. Some would say they are probably rolling over in their graves, but I’m going to try to keep this more on the positive (and non-political) side.

Thankful on Memorial Day

Memorial Day 2015

I am eternally grateful to live in a country where we can live free from tyranny and enjoy individual rights such as freedom of speech. It’s easy to take these things for granted, but at least for one day every year, we are called to remember and honor those who have made it possible. People who gave their life so that I can drive my own success and be free to say what I want without fear of persecution. To them and their families, all of us at Pole Position Marketing say a sincere “Thank You.”

PPM Announces New Client: Baidu

BaiduPole Position Marketing is pleased to announce that it has secured Chinese search engine Baidu as a client.

Baidu has a long and storied history as one of the oldest search engines, established in 1997, even before Google. And while Google, according to one recent investment report, controls 67.5 percent of search volume in the United States, Baidu dominates 80 percent of search use in China. With such a saturation in their native market, Baidu has set its sites on the U.S.

Just a quick shout out to Americas veterans. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. Thank  you for defending our freedoms. Thank you for being willing to do the things we don’t. May God bless you and your families and bestow upon you blessings far greater than your sacrifice.

It Really Is The Best Damn Web Marketing Checklist, Period!

It Really Is The Best Damn Web Marketing Checklist, Period!

The Best Damn Web Marketing Checklist, Period!

Whew! That was a lot more work than I ever imagined. If anyone ever told you that writing a book was REALLY tough, go ahead and slap them for me because that’s a drastic understatement. It’s hard. Very, very, very, very, very hard! And I might be understating that as well.

Kudos to all my now-fellow authors out there who have gone through this time and time again. You. Are. Amazing.

I started working on my book way back in 2007, only it wasn’t a book. It was a series of blog posts that I then compiled into a free PDF download. That checklist garnered around 10,000 downloads over the years. Last year I began the process of updating the checklist. As it did, my compilation of checklists grew from just over a dozen pages to over 200. I figured that was the stuff books were made of!

The Best Damn Web Marketing Checklist Gets an Upgrade—and a Cheat Sheet!

Seven years ago I embarked on a journey to create The Best Damn Web Marketing Checklist, Period! I did and it was… if I may say that with humility. The free PDF we created has been downloaded tens of thousands of times over the last seven years and continues to get a handful of downloads every week even today.

But today is not seven years ago, and web marketing has changed. Back then, social media marketing didn’t (or barely) existed, mobile sites weren’t even a thing, and local search meant typing in the geographical location into your search bar.

Last year I set out to create an even better Best Damn Web Marketing Checklist, Period! I did and it is. The new version, which will be published as a book in a couple months, includes 13 new checklists (36 total) and more than 200 new action points (somewhere around 635). That’s one big damn checklist!

Get the Cheat Sheet Today!

Since the book will be sold on Amazon, we decided to create a free companion piece called The Best Damn Web Marketing Cheat Sheet!

The cheat sheet contains all of the action points of the book, minus the explanations and examples. It’s designed to accompany the book and give you an easy to print and reference document, but it can certainly stand on its own.

Today we are releasing the cheat sheet as a free download. So what are you waiting for? Go get your free copy today. Your website will thank you!
