Just Write

writing-923882_1920
 When I talk with clients about their websites, one topic that seems to give them pause is blogging. Whether it is the fear of not having anything to say, inability to type or not seeing the point, it always is a conversation they seem to want to avoid.I get it. Sometimes when I think about blogging for Danico, I (momentarily) have some of those same fears. I'm not su...

Are your vectors aligned?

AligningVectorsElonMusk

HubSpot CTO Dharmesh Shah gave a Keynote Address at #INBOUND2017 and in it he recounted meeting Elon Musk (I'm a big fan!).  During that meeting he talked about growing your business by aligning your vectors.  I admit I had to read this a couple of times to fully comprehend.  Halfway through the second read, a lightbulb went off.  I get it. Sum of parts, aligned vectors, everyone rowing the same way is necessary for growth.  Mr. Shah has shared both a video and the slides of his keynote address on LinkedIn in a post called, What Elon Musk Taught Me About Growing a Business. Check it out, what do you think?

Hello, can I speak with...

Hello, can I speak with...
Ross McCammon's recent article in Entrepreneur "Pick Up The Damn Phone" highlights a complaint many clients experience - they can't call and talk with anyone. This experience stems not from failed returned calls but due to firms burying or going so far to not even list their phone number on their website. McCammon endorses "...the telephone as the most valuable form of com...

Time Flies When You're Having Fun

Time Flies When You're Having Fun

OMG, Dec 31st is almost here!  I can't thank you enough for hanging out with us!   As we wrap up this year's deliverables and squeeze in client meetings before the holidays, we look forward to spending some time with friends and family.  This year was a good year and 2013 is shaping up to be even better.  We've said it before, and we can't say it enough, THANK YOU to our clients, past, present and future (*wink*).  THANK YOU to our great advisors (we know how shy you are so I won't name names). THANK YOU to our friends and family who put up with us, we could not have done it without your love and support.

Before we get too sappy here, reminding you, if you have not already done so, follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with the latest on us and our clients. 
 
Oh and before I forget...keep the feedback coming! 
 
Take care, Happy Holidays and see you in 2013!
