From Our Desk to Yours...Mobile Sites

Please join us in celebrating the launch of our TWG mobile website!  Now, you can check us out on-the-go!  Not only do we have a mobile website, but many of our clients do, as well.  Mobile websites are an excellent method to be available to your consumers, even when their computer is not.

Many people don’t realize the difference in download time and view-ability between a standard website and a mobile website for smart phones—trust that the difference is vast!  So much so, in fact, that if your competitor has a mobile website, and you do not—a potential consumer may choose them over you—simply because the mobile site comes up quicker, and is easier to view than your standard website that is much too large for the viewing window of a mobile device.

Enhancing your online presence means taking a good hard look at where you stand with your on-the-go presence, too.  Check out our mobile site, and use it to determine what a huge benefit one could be for your business:  www.thewebguys.comCall us today, to inquire on setting up your very own mobile site, and QR code for your mobile site, to get the most out of your brand.





SOCIAL STANCE: Face your competition—meet eye-to-eye on Facebook

Facebook is free online advertising that connects your business to an endless number of customers and potential customers, while also putting you in the mix to be among other businesses, including your competition.

According to a recent Google study, 75% of American adults use the internet daily; and among those, 93% use Facebook regularly.  By having your very own business Facebook page—you are providing your company the opportunity to connect to each and every one of these Facebook users.  And the more activity you have on your Facebook page, the higher your Google ranking may be. 

The Web Guys have tools available that can allow you to update your blog on your site—and then auto feed via RSS this updated information to both your Facebook and Twitter accounts.  Call us today to find out how we can help you get involved in the fast-growing social networking outlets.


Need more time in the day...?

Another busy day, another busy week!  So much to do, in so little time; but just because something falls off the radar doesn’t mean others aren’t aware.  Especially when it's right there for everyone to see any time they are at your address.   And there it is--in desperate need of upkeep and some work.  It's not bad--it could just be better--especially knowing that literally anyone can see it at any time.  It's just finding the time to manage the upkeep.  I suppose it isn't finding the time so much as creating the time.  It's not like it will take that long--even just 5 minutes once a week will do wonders; and if everyone can see it any ol' time....you know what, maybe even 15 or 20 minutes--just once a week?  I can spare that.  Manage it one evening--not even half an hour of my time, and it will look so much better.  Then I won’t be concerned with what people might think then when they see it.  Okay, then--no more excuses--I can handle just a few minutes each week.  And then the visual will be so much better than the current state.

Funny how my ramblings on my landscaping can sound so much like the internal struggle many businesses have regarding their social media!  I have weeds to pull; and you may have posts to make.  Often times we complain and excuse lack of effort with not having the time--but other people manage to weed their flower beds, or maintain their social sites--and they have no more time than you or me.

What's keeping us from making the time to manage our spaces?
