by Teena Hughes
Should a brand new website appear in Google results? What have we done wrong? This is a great question posted this month by Judy, and I understand that very few business owners know what to do when they first publish their website, or when they think about marketing so here are a few simple suggestions: We have had our website and blog up for a little while, and I just followed a 5 day course to make sure the website was ready.  But I just went to Google to search, for fun I guess, and my name does not come [...]

What do cyclones have to do with your business? Let's be honest here, I'm not used to ever being near a cyclone. Until now. They're calling it "ex-tropical Cyclone Debbie" because it swept through Hamilton Island off the north east coast of Australia, and then spun itself into a whirling dervish on the mainland, heading inland (due west). After wreaking havoc over the past few days, it slowed down and started heading south east, which includes my part of the east coast of Queensland. I'm glad I don't have to take the Car Barge to the mainland - the usually [...]

It's Happy Halloween! All Hallow's Eve! 31st October! https://vimeo.com/189618572 Here in Australia, more and more people are celebrating this date, even though it was never a part of my childhood.

Here it is below: I think it worked out ok, what do you think? What do [...]
