Growing Your Business in the Digital Age  17

A Detroit SEO company has been helping local businesses increase their presence in the local market and capture additional business by utilizing search engines and social media. In today’s economic climate traditional marketing strategies are not nearly as effective as they once were. By traditional advertising we mean radio, TV, billboards and newspaper advertising as well as phone book advertising.


For one, advertising in the phone book only makes sense if you’re trying to capture the senior market. They seem to be relying on the phone book to find a local business. However, to get a good return on investment you have to outspend your competition. The more you spend the better the placement you will receive in the phone book and the larger the display of  your ad. But, if your ad fails to perform to your anticipation then you have to wait it out and continue to pay for luke-worm results until your contract is up.


Newspaper advertising works the same way as phone book advertising. Readership is down and so is the response rate on your ads.


TV and radio advertising can work but is usually expensive.

In today’s digital age the best form of advertising is internet advertising. By strategically making your website appear in search engines for select search phrases can give your business an immediate boost and can be a solid predictor of future revenue. One client of this SEO company is a makeup artist in Detroit. This makeup artist has been a tremendous increase in business by appearing in Google for two keyword phrases.


Video marketing can work great if you have are a service business or have a product to sell. What can be helpful is if you demonstrate the service of the product you have for sale such as the video below.

Plastic Surgery: Dos and Don’ts  477

Courtesy of

Summer is almost here and we all want to look our best. But, what is the best way to achieve our optimal look? For some, it entails many many hours at the gym. For others, cutting our junk foods and subscribing to a healthier diet. When you stick to a workout and diet regimen your results could be very rewarding.  This is easier said then done. Hence, the high dropout rate.

And then, there are some who prefer quick results without the grueling workouts and restrictive diets. It’s easy to want to look like Hollywood celebrities like Angelina Jolie or Jennifer Lawrence. While most people agree that their freakishly good looks are unattainable a small number of skilled plastic surgeons can perform wonders.

Now, before you dish thousands of dollars and go under the knife it’s crucial that you proceed with caution.

Here are a few basic dos and don’ts  before you get surgery.


  • Research your surgeon. A good place to start is with on of the top Michigan  rhinoplasty surgeon. Make sure they have sufficient credentials like Board certification.
  • Experience – If you’re interested in losing weight then make sure your surgeon has at least five years of experience performing tummy tucks or relevant surgeries.
  • Do ask a lot of questions.
  • Do ask for before and after pictures.


  • Don’t allow to be rushed. Take as long as you need.
  • Don’t settle based on price alone. In most cases, surgeons who are just starting out or those who don’t have the sufficient experience charge less than their competition. Think about it. If the going rate for a procedure is $5,000 and your surgeon charges $3,000 don’t you think it’s too good to be true? Listen to your instincts.
  • Don’t get surgery to please someone else. It’s your body. You’re taking all the risks.
  • If you’re unsure at all then postpone your procedure. Time will tell if it’s the right thing to do of if you should forego the entire thing.
