My First Webinar

The day had arrived. I had successfully launched my first webinar campaign. After a print ad, facebook referrals, a landing page with an opt in form, an email campaign, and several facebook follow up posts I had 10 participants.

The time was here. I could see the numbers jump up in the chat bar: 7 … 8 … 9.  The seconds were ticking down on the video embed for the LIVE webinar: 20 … 19 … 18.  I’d been building up to this moment. I’d tested my systems. I’d practiced my presentation. I was ready to make a big impression and bring amazing value to 10 lucky people. Read more

Search Engine Optimization with Backlinks

Backlinking has taken a few different turns since I first started working on websites in 1997. The original term was called a “web ring” and it was before the super power search engines came into the online realm as the Dewey Decimal of the Internet. The original web rings were a community-oriented, good will exchange. Website owners would add links for most anyone who asked to help their friends, family and colleagues gain visibility on the Web. Often times, links were placed on a page on the site simply called “links”. Fast forward to today. Search engines are the best way to be found and web rings have been slightly altered by search engine optimization (SEO) techniques.
