Google Built-In Websites

Posted by on March 5th, 2018

We’ve had a lot of notifications about this particular feature on Google My Business. When managing a lot of different locations on Google, Google can get obnoxious with reminders sometimes. However, any other owners on these accounts will also get notifications, which means that the business owners may be getting confusing notifications from Google as well. Don’t worry, business owner! We have it handled. What is it? Google has integrated the use of a “website” on their own server.

Perceived Need, Marketing, and the Diamond Monopoly

Posted by on June 12th, 2013

I read an article this week that got me thinking: What is the job of marketers? Read the original article here The article is looking at the rise of the diamond engagement ring, as orchestrated by De Beers in the 1930s.
