Are you using Instagram but cannot get traction gaining regular followers?
This is a common problem and almost a full time job working 'follow / unfollow' campaigns, sourcing quality accounts to follow and more.
I know I simply do not have time for it and was very relieved when I found a company that specialises in Instagram and helping businesses gain quality, engaged followers.
Socially Rich is a company who does just that! :o)
I now just do the fun bit for my clients and that is posting beautiful photos the rest is now on autopilot - happy days!
They have helped me take one of my clients accounts from 250 followers to over 3,700 in less than 6 months. You can watch this account grow here: Scarlettos Instagram Account.

It does not matter if you have a one page or 100 page website, the following is a guide of elements and functions that every website should have regardless of its size and your budget.
The following is in no particular order, with all points being as important as each other. A good website developer will ensure that your site is built from the ground up with these key factors in mind.
According to Sensis, more than 92% of Australians now look for products and services online proving that if you do not have a website you are more than likely missing a lot of business. A properly built and well maintained website offers:
CREDIBILITY - A professional website gives you credibility and gives customers more confidence in your business. Often your site is the first point of contact a customer will have with your business so it is important to have a professional website that reflects your brand and your products and services.
I have been involved in the creation of many websites for myself and clients over the past 15 years using a range of web development companies and my experiences have ranged from having my expectations far exceeded through to immense frustration and even being totally ripped off and losing a lot of money.
During this period, I wish I had a check list of key questions to ask so I was better prepared to make informed decisions. I have learned a lot along the way and here I share 15 key questions you absolutely MUST ask any person or company you are considering to engage in building your next website.
I am currently part of a challenging, yet fun “30 day blogging challenge”, where a group I am a member of is aiming to write and publish at least three blog posts per week for the month of March.
I am very much enjoying it but it has been harder than I anticipated. Firstly, coming up with new, educational, interesting content is easier said the done, then finding the time to actually write it and publish it is definitely more time consuming than I imagined.
Here we are at the start week three ALREADY and this my sixth blog (half way) of twelve so a tad behind but determined to catch up before then end of the month.
A very quick blog today but an important one for those of us who reply on our websites to promote our products and service and to bring us great things!
A message filtering through the cyber ether has advised that Google will make a major algorithm change on April 21st, where all the websites that are NOT mobile friendly will basically end up last in search results!
Here is a link you can use to check and see if your website is mobile friendly:
Online scams are called a few things, spoofing, phishing and hacking to name a few. Whatever guise it is under, it could have serious effects on your business as those caught out, usually have little chance of tracing such behavior.
Spoofing Attack - In the context of network security, a spoofing attack is a situation in which one person or program successfully masquerades as another by falsifying data and thereby gaining an illegitimate advantage.
Many of you know I am a keen sailor and although I prefer cruising to racing, I have been glued to the coverage of the incredible Volvo Ocean Race that is on at the moment.
There are many reasons why I love this race and find it so amazing:
> Unlike many yachting races, the yachts are all identical (design, size, weight etc), making winning or losing all about skill rather than who has the fattest wallet.
> It is sailed by the best-of-the-best yachtsman in the world.
> It is a true test of endurance and has been described as grueling and even brutal!
> It is no doubt the leading round-the-world sailing race for teams, with a series of stops that give the sailors a break and also allows spectators and fans the opportunity to mix with the crews and enjoy the in-port celebrations.
> The race crosses 4 oceans, 11 countries and 6 continents, covering 38,739 nautical miles (approx. 71,745 kilometres) and stops in 11 ports along the way.
When I first speak to clients about the many benefits of publishing a regular e-Newsletter, one of the first things they want to talk about is the design. They want to discuss what colours they will use, how many and which images they should include and what design they should implement.
Although these elements are important they are NOWHERE near as important as the actual content/articles you will include!
I call it “Phaffing over design”.
Marketing is a lot more than just advertising and branding, it is everything your company does, it is about the whole experience customers have when they deal with your company.
