Fresh reasons to get on board

In the last week or so we have had the Super Bowl & the blackout, Tiger & Phil winning their first tournaments of the year in great style and of course the usual gibberish around the Winnipeg Internet industry.

As most of you will know, occasionally I like to have a rant, today is the day :-)

Having been around the net now as a marketer for 17 years, I have seen a lot come and go, Google came, AltaVista went, Facebook came and Friends United you get the gist, it’s no different in Winnipeg.

I have seen companies and individuals start in Winnipeg, then go, but they always seem to turn up again like bad pennies as some other company or expert consultant usually in Social Media, SEO or Marketing and it gets very tiring, I cannot believe that Winnipeg businesses keep falling for it.

One year there in college or shelf filling at Walmart, waiting in restaurants or selling flowers, the next there experts online peddling webinars or circuit speakers, really, do real people fall for this BS, In Winnipeg Yes.

People who know me or have dealt with my company know I don’t beat about the bush, I say things as they are, yes the truth hurts sometimes folks, my only concern is my client and the well being of there business and online return on investment.

I don’t care too much about money, it’s not our companies driving force, doing the job well and the client making money usually brings its rewards, enough to pay the wages and rent anyways.

We have friends in the city and probably a lot more enemies, mainly due to me speaking my mind, apologies to my sales manager, but how long can this charade go on for?

We have never really advertised ourselves too much, not joined the numerous clubs or groups in the city, done speeches even when asked or webinars for that matter, why, we never had to and to be fair I would probably struggle to get through it without a F word being thrown in there. I did join the Chamber for a few years after being asked, which did nothing at all for my company, maybe I faces just did not fit.

The truth of the matter is we had it all online, Yes the internet where 92% of people look before buying anything, and so as the old saying goes, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. So straight from the horse’s mouth are the reasons you could be missing out on all those top spots on Google, Bing & Yahoo not to mention the thousands of $$$$$ people are looking to spend on your products.

There’s a reason why we are the #1 Online Branding Company in Canada on Google, Bing & Yahoo.

There’s a reason why we have dominated local search in Winnipeg over the last 6 years for SEO, Social Media & Internet Marketing.

There’s a reason why we are #1 Online for Winnipeg Digital Media.

There’s a reason why we are #1 for Winnipeg Ecommerce in Canada Online.

There’s a reason we have a 99% renewal rate from clients.

There’s a reason why we have continued to grow and lasted more than 15 years online.

There’s a reason Google purchased one of our companies.

We could give you another 100 reasons why we are leaders online, but we would rather you hear that from others.

Can you think of a reason why you should not be working with us?

Google Credit Cards for Business

Google is getting into the credit business for the  first time, with the launch on Monday of a programme in the UK to finance  purchases of its online advertising by businesses.

The move marks the opening of a new front in the battle between the biggest  internet companies, as they turn to their balance sheets as a source of  competitive advantage. Amazon said last week that it had begun making loans to  independent sellers that offer their products on its marketplace, marking the  online retailer’s first move into financial services.

Google’s decision to issue its own credit card, which will also be made  available in the US within weeks and other unspecified countries later, signals  the company’s first attempt to use its huge cash reserves to support its core  search advertising business by subsidising low-interest rate credit lines.

It said it would offer customers credit of between $200 and $100,000 a month  to pay for their use of Adwords, which places messages next to the results in  its search engine and made up the bulk of its $37bn in advertising revenues last  year.
