Castle Rock Marketing Company Giving 500 Dollars Off, Amazing Ideas, Inc.

Local Castle Rock Business In Need Of New Website Look No Further You Are In Luck

If you are a local Castle Rock business in need of a website, a new website or a revamp or updating of an existing website, then look no further. You are in luck.

Amazing Ideas, Inc. is a marketing agency that focuses predominantly on the online aspects of your marketing, including the design of your website for optimal performance, reach, capturing leads and converting to sales. In addition we too are based in Castle Rock.

Well, throughout the next week, we are seeking to connect with more businesses of the local community which means that we will be knocking off a full $500 on web design work that we will do for you.

Special $500 Off web design work from Amazing Ideas, Inc, Catle Rock Marketing Agency during 2 weeks of June 2015

That’s right, we are looking to build our portfolio of work for local Castle Rock businesses and we are willing to award a nice reduction off of our going rates for gaining new local clients.

Since every website is different and since the needs to be met from one business to another vary, we cannot just off the bat quote a price. Let’s just say, that most website design work we engage in commence around the $6,500 mark and some run north of $25,000 or even much, much higher depending on complexity.

That said, if you are in need of a very nice looking website, but super simple, we have some very good starter packaged websites priced at the ridiculously low rate of $2,495 and you can even apply the $500 discount towards this package. This starter package, however, is likely to increase any time soon and should be at an usual price of $3,750.

In other words, if you are contemplating updating, upgrading or revamping your existing website or indeed in need of a brand new website, then you may want to pick up the phone and call us now on 888-988-2489 to discuss your project. Alternatively, shoot us an email. But don’t wait too long. Before you’ll know it, the week has gone and the offer is off the table.

These special offers are only during this next week commencing TODAY, Friday June 12 2015, so do not postpone reaching out to us. When the next week is over, we will love to help you still but then the $500 discount is off the table and the special starter packages are probably back to more natural rates.

 

If you are still on the fence whether you should do it now, then I urge you to test your current site if you have one and test it for mobile-friendliness. If your current website is not mobile-friendly, well, you probably lost 80% of all your local traffic and about 60% of all non-local traffic. That is HUGE and you had better correct this sooner rather than later.

Don’t know what I’m talking about? To learn more about this, please read this article we posted not too long ago.

We can help you and we can get your website up to speed in no time.

While we usually agree on a 30 day turn around time, we like to over-deliver and do so FAST.

Put us to the test and you won’t be disappointed.

If we don’t deliver within the set parameters we agree upon to your satisfaction – You’ll Pay Nothing!! That’s our guarantee.

 

Again this offer is only valid this next week, starting today and ending next Friday and is only for work on websites and web design for Local Castle Rock Businesses. Be sure to mention the code Castle Rock 500 to refer to this special offer. Certain restrictions and terms apply. Last day for the offer is June 19 2015.

 

Act now, before the offer has expired (expires June 19 2015). Call us now on 888-988-2489 or shoot us an email. Let’s get started and get your business up into a higher gear.

 

 

 

The Perfect Website The Perfect Website Design - new article series from Amazing Ideas inc, Marketing Agency in Castle Rock Colorado

The Perfect Website

What would the perfect website be like?

For businesses I supposed the perfect website would be one that presents your business well and automates a lot of things for you, not least sales, deliveries and follow ups. In a perfect world it would work so well that sales just come in all by themselves on autopilot, are fulfilled and that subsequent follow through and customer care is carried out also automatically. Even more perfect, once set up, no more work would have to be done.

Sounds nice doesn’t it?

I would like one of those for each and every one of my businesses.

The truth is you can actually have a lot of these things in place for your website. The truth is also that, no, it will never be a set it and forget it.

Things move ahead and things change. You need to tweak and amend as it may become necessary. You may also need to feed your website with new and updated content, so that you keep bringing value into the market place, content relevant to what you are offering, value that your prospects can appreciate and that may help you and topics that may help your website get found in relevant searches and more.

But like I said. You can actually have a lot of the factors set in place and your website will perform wonderfully.

Is it easy?

Well, some of the parts are easy enough to set up. Some are a bit tricky or cumbersome and take some more time and work.

Getting it to work in unison and getting it to attract the right clients is a big challenge.

Often it comes down to what you are selling, how easily it is to specify what unique advantages you have and making a fantastically converting offer to a very highly targeted audience.

The more precise you have these points down, the more likely it is that you can make it happen and generate results from it.

We at Amazing Ideas, Inc., will be commencing a new series of posts and articles here on the topic of websites and website designs.

We hope that you will follow along and chime in with what you like and what you don’t like. We would also love to hear from you what is working for you right now and in fact what is not working for you.

Just enter your comments to each post as we move ahead or send us an email with your insights.

Should you be in need of assistance of getting a new website up, or of revamping an old website, or upgrading your current website to a mobile responsive and mobile friendly website, then we would love to help you out. Just call us or send us an email and we can get started on that.

Please follow along our series on Website Design.

 

This current series is relevant for all who is running a business and it will give you insights and points to ponder when deciding upon your website layout, look, feel and functionality. Current at Amazing Ideas, Inc. we are seeking to expand on the portfolio of websites that we create for customers and we specifically wish to expand on website for our local area of Castle Rock, Colorado. We welcome website design queries from all over though, so don’t let it hold you back, if we can help you.

As we talk with more and more clients about their websites, many of the same questions will arise and with this new series, we hope that we can provide even more answers and insights for you, our prospective clients and clients to go and review.

 

 

 

 

Amazing Ideas, Inc. Castle Rock Marketing Company

Castle Rock Marketing Expert Warns Business Owners Of Complacency

Business owners still don’t seem to grasp the importance of getting their website mobile-friendly. Every day these businesses are losing tons of business as their websites will not appear in searches performed on mobile devices.

Castle Rock, CO. – June 10, 2015 – Marketing expert and successful international serial entrepreneur Mikkel Pitzner warns business owners of not paying attention to their online web presence.

Mikkel Pitzner, who among other businesses runs the local Castle Rock based marketing company, Amazing Ideas Inc., notes that still far too many businesses have not yet updated their website to be mobile-friendly and are therefore missing out on a lot of traffic and ultimately business.

He is referring to the latest Google algorithm update that was effected on April 21 2015, which basically discards all non-mobile-friendly websites from search results that are performed on mobile devices. Mikkel Pitzner also points out that more searches today are done on mobile devices, so in essence businesses that haven’t ensured their websites will perform on a mobile device will lose up to 60 of their traffic.

In fact, Mikkel Pitzner, stresses that for local searches, businesses might lose up 80% of the traffic. According to Mikkel Pitzner, local traffic may even hold the most potential sales, as this traffic often represents buyers who are ready to make their purchases now.

“I have had the pleasure of speaking to numerous businesses about the importance of them ensuring their websites are up to date, but it has been surprising how many of them are yet still so lackadaisical about it and not doing anything about it”, says Mikkel Pitzner and continues, “I believe, they just don’t understand what this actually means for their business and just how much they are throwing away from their businesses. It’s rather incredible, especially when you consider how little an investment is required to fix their problem and how that investment will work for them 24-7 all year round for years to come”

Via Amazing Ideas, Inc. Mikkel Pitzner and his team are helping businesses getting their websites upgraded to mobile responsive and mobile friendly website that will ensure they will show up and perform well across all platforms, including all the mobile devices.

Black Hat Marketer Without The Hat

White Hat Tricks Versus Black Hat Tricks

White Hat Tricks Versus Black Hat Tricks

An introduction to White Hat and Black Hat terms as used in connection with marketing language

By Mikkel Pitzner, Marketing Expert and Serial Entrepreneur, CEO of Amazing Ideas, Inc.

Posted June 8, 2015

Follow up of recent post that promised to tell more about these two terms that are often used when marketers talk online. This is also a follow up to the Marketing Castle Rock series, that we have posted here recently.

 

A few posts back (in a post from yesterday), I mentioned the words of White Hat tricks and Black Hat tricks. These are words often used when discussing Search Engines Optimization efforts. I promised that I would give you more insights into these areas, but then I got all caught up in my efforts of getting this website here ranked for the keywords of Marketing Castle Rock.

Well, I do wish to live up to my promise, so here goes, let’s look a little at the White Hat versus Black Hat tricks.

Now, the entire series that I have had going on these past 2 or 3 days, which I call Marketing Castle Rock series, has all been about getting the ranking in Google’s search results for the words of Marketing Castle Rock, so that’s why we even encountered the terms White Hat and Black Hat. In short White Hat are true and real measures that you can engage in in order to seek your desired ranking results, while Black Hat take on a more dubious character.

The White Hat elements would be to actually bring real content that has real value for the ones who are looking for what you are bringing. That means you are bringing real posts or articles with really good content from which people will derive a real value. It could be entertainment content that’s really good or it could be for instance educational content, such as content on How To Get Ranked For Your Keywords.

White Hat also means that you are matching the keywords that you are seeking to get ranked for with words that are actually relevant for what people are searching for.

So for instance if I was to search for something on a new song from Taylor Swift and I end up with relevant material on such a song and that such material actually brought me real and preferably valuable content for my interest, then this would be entirely White Hat. If, however, you were a person of lesser integrity and you made use of tricks that could get you ranked for the same new song from Taylor Swift, but all you really wanted to show when I clicked your link was something you wanted to e.g. sell me, that had actually nothing to do with Taylor Swift or her new song, then you would term your use of efforts completely Black Hat.

When Google returns search results to you for whatever words you typed in, Google really wants to match up the results with something useful that will get you to something your wanted to get to. This does not preclude any sales, so pages that sell stuff are totally fine as long as what is being sold there (and provided it’s a legitimate seller) is what you were looking for. I might for instance soon need to go looking for a new bike for my little son who has outgrown his first bike, so if I typed in something like “best bike for a 5 year old”, then I might be perfectly happy about finding a review page that would tell me about the current top 4 or 5 models on the market, include a pro and con list or comparison of each, included the reviewer’s personal choices and reasons for same, along with a buy it here now button. That could still be highly valuable for me and would make up something that would make it easy and relevant for me.

If, however, the result in the same search got me to a page, where the content had little or nothing to do with “best bike for a 5 year old”, but that the person behind the landing page was really just scheming in order to get the traffic (me visiting as well as other searchers using similar search words) and trying to sell me something else (don’t really know what that would be in this case), well, then for sure this site would have implemented Black Hat elements in order to get a ranking for the searched keywords. In effect, such a search result would not have been what Google would have intended for you, but since Google is driven by machines (bots and algorithms), then results like this could potentially slip through if the culprit had employed techniques that made it pass through the net.

In my view there is something sinister about the Black Hat operations. That’s why I illustrated this article with the image of the sinister guy in the rain. Of course he lost his black hat in the image, but you get the point.

Google’s algorithms change and are updated from time to time.

Very often Google make changes to actually close loopholes that schemers have found and are using to pass their websites in front of innocent and unsuspecting people. If you have read a thing or two about such algorithm updates, you might often have heard the whining and crying of marketers who all of a sudden lost ranking and traffic after an update from Google had been implemented.

My personal take on most of such whining that I have encountered via the internet is that their losses were well deserved. Often they were using tricks just to get ranked, instead of actually seeking to provide real value to the end receiver. Perhaps whatever they were selling were good enough, but they hadn’t acquired the traffic in what I would term in appropriate ways.

Perhaps they were buying their ways to thousand of links to the websites from dubious websites all over. Websites that were just set up to provide these so-called backlinks. Or perhaps they utilized an array of scheming plots to get the ranking in place.

I have never studied the Black Tricks myself, so I’m actually not really well familiar with how you would do this or what works. It’s not for me. I find it dubious and scheming. Yes, I wish to get my ranking for whatever is really relevant to what my site or my customer’s site is about. But I wish to do so via the correct ways and most notably via actually providing real value and real content.

Is this hard work? and is it possibly harder work?

I think you can concluded a definite YES to both of these questions. However, the good thing is, that if you build your website and your website’s content up to become an authoritative site and a site that’s well worth visiting because you bring real value, real insights and real (and preferably original) content, then you will never be hurt from a Google algorithm update. That’s why you rarely hear whining from those who really bring you good content rich websites.

Employ good sound strategies which include a deliberate attempt to bring valuable articles, posts, videos, insights and such within the topic area that you are about on your website and you can slowly and steadily bring you up in the right positions with Google. It takes a bit more work and it may take quite a while before people actually become aware of it, but over time you may be able to create a following that like your content and will actually help share it among their friends and peers of own account and thereby help you grow your reach.

Employ Black Hat tricks and you will likely be looking over your shoulder for yet another Google algorithm update that will strip your of your achieved ranking. Heck, who knows, Google may even “bury” your site from searches more or less entirely.

A certain type of marketers have always been trying to scheme their way to get in front of people via the search results. As a business owner, you don’t want to be one of them, nor do you want to hire one of them. Use your efforts and money in a wiser way and know that it will be way worth it and be a solution that bears a whole different longevity with it too.

My current series that we are posting these days also here to our latest news has been all about our wish to get ranked for the words Marketing Castle Rock. While I have mentioned, I probably should have chosen some other words or other combination of words (or possibly more long tail search terms), these are the words we chose and have stuck to while we are providing you with an example. For our business, it would make sense to get in front of people who are interested in marketing. Either wanting to learn about how to do it or even better wanting to hire someone knowledgeable to do it for them (that would be us, Amazing Ideas, Inc. we hope). It also makes sense that we would wish to get in front of the businesses that are in our local area, Castle Rock. Not only because it would be nice to further strengthen our relations with the local community and also because sometimes it is just easier and makes for stronger connections when you can meet in person, but also because as I have mentioned previously in the Marketing Castle Rock series, that a local buyer may be much more likely to actually buy now as opposed to just be an information seeker.

As you may understand, in seeking the desired ranking for Marketing Castle Rock we have implemented some efforts, among which is in fact the article/post series in itself. So while this serve what you would call a self-serving purpose, we have also simultaneously brought real value to the series, by explaining to some degree what we are doing, why we are doing it, how we could do better and not least how you could do this with good results for your business. In other words, we are carrying out efforts that helps our ranking, while also bringing real insights and lessons to you along the way.

We even listed in some of the posts a brief list of the takeaways and points for you to consider. Learning points that for a lot of people may in fact entail real aha moments.

 

Our website and not least our efforts of bringing us forth as an authoritative site that adds value to the visitors are very new. Over time and when we keep up decent work and keep bringing sound content, lessons, updates etc., our ranking for relevant terms and words will come more naturally. All beginnings require extensive work. If you have ever tried to build a business from scratch, you know exactly what I mean. Lots of work and lots of moving parts. Often days are filled with set backs until you finally reach a point of decent momentum in a positive direction. Such is it with most websites too.

However, as you can see if you review our Marketing Castle Rock series, we managed to get from a page 21 ranking to a page 2 Google result. The last bit getting to a page 1 may require quite a bit more work, if we even ever get there for these particular 3 words.

I mentioned our chosen 3 words of Marketing Castle Rock may not have been particularly good and I have previously given part reasons to this, so I will not repeat to much of this now. But in short the word “Marketing” in itself, is possibly way too vague not being truly specific to us. It might be a great deal easier to add a few extra descriptive words to the search terms to up the relevancy for what really has to do with us and not the several million other search results you find. Marketing is also a word used in too man connections, so not only does it have a huge competition for that word, but it also can take you to too many unrelated results.

Castle Rock is the name of the town in which Amazing Ideas, Inc. is located so that makes a lot of sense. However, when you do not put quotation marks in your search words, then the three words can make up all sorts of combinations, so it may even include things that has nothing to do with the town of its name, but could have to do with the building “Castle” or with a stone or a “Rock”. Judging from the current search results that I see, it may not be so much be that they relate to the building or the stone, but that the town actually has relevance to the search results, so so far so good. There are also a number of marketing business, marketing companies or marketing agencies among the results, so that also makes the results relevant to what I am hoping to find – all of these would just be colleagues or competitors, depending on how you view it or how good you are at your business.

However, in the search results I see a whole lot of listings that are very little relevant to what I was hoping to see.

There’s the notorious first listing that even has a couple of extra listings on Google’s first page and whose business is actually about auctioning of cattle. Their result is however relevant to the search result only because they have chosen to call themselves CastleRockMarketing. They even have that particular URL/domain name and that counts highly with Google. On top of that they have similarly named Facebook fanpage and a twitter account. It makes complete sense for the Google bots can only see what the machine/bots see.

You might question if it makes sense for someone who auctions off cattle to name themselves CastleRockMarketing (even if they are from Castle Rock), but that’s another story. I suspect they might actually get in front of more relevant people to their particular business if their name indeed did include something about cattle, like e.g. CastleRockCattleMarketing. I know that does get a bit long, but ultimately, they will gain no business from all the searchers of marketing related stuff, who are not trying to sell cattle. So as I said, they may not gain anything at all, but in fact actually lose out to those who will be searching for something related to cattle and sale of same (or possibly buying of same).

Among a lot of the other search results, I see positions of Marketing managers and such listed. It may be very well relevant, just not for the intention I had in mind. Going deeper into the following pages of the Google search results and I see a bunch of properties for sale listings. The location may be highly relevant, but perhaps in my objective, the marketing words seems a miss. But these results are as I say poor in terms of what I intended to get ranked for and also for what I intended to search for when choosing and using the words. This is exactly the result of poorly chosen words and that’s my mistake.

The word marketing is too commonly used for too many things that may have little to do with people wishing to gain marketing insights or better yet hiring a marketing agency such as my Amazing Ideas, Inc. That is why my chosen word of marketing is poorly chosen and that’s what you should avoid. Later some day, we may look into specific research on keywords and how you should go about it, but we will leave that for some other day. For now, let me just repeat briefly that you wish to find somethings that may be even more specific to your business and something that narrows it down even further. Combine it further with longer tail search terms, which essentially are longer sentences to get ranked for.

My poorly chosen words, are likely to make it too tricky to get onto a first page search result and also put me in front of people who are in fact not looking for my offered services, but perhaps are looking for how to market their property or may be looking to obtain a marketing position or something else completely unrelated to my business, my website, my content and my aims.

I can do better than this by selecting better keywords to seek to get listed for. You can do better for your business, by making better choices too and avoiding my hasty mistakes.

 

I know this was a long article. If you have actually made it this far, I thank you kindly for your time and interest. I hope that it brought you value and insights. As you can see, I wish I might have paid a little more attention to my choosing of the keywords for me, but then again, it only helped to illustrates just as valuable a couple of points of what not to do. The full Marketing Castle Rock series hold a lot of insights so I believe it to be worth your while to review it all. I hope that you will and that you will let me know how it helped you in your business and with your marketing.

MarketingCastleRock - Marketing Castle Rock Local Shoppers who are more likely to buy NOW!

How Do You Get Ranked In Google Searches For Your Local Business?

Getting ranked in Google searches for something relevant to your local business is extremely important.

By doing so, you will basically get in front of a lot of people who just may become your future customers. For any local searches, I have previously stressed that such a visitor may be even more highly likely to buy from you NOW compared to searches that are non-local, who may be more information seekers rather than buyers.

The reason is that when we do a local search it is even more often than not the case, that we are actually in need of something specific here and now. Perhaps we need to find a dry cleaner, or a local DIY store, or find the nearest paint store or for the women a place to get our nails done.

When we do the local searches we are oftentimes much closer to actually effecting a purchase.

That’s why as a business, you will really want to ensure that you pop up in searches for your local market for something relevant to what you are selling.

Amazing Ideas, Inc. is a Castle Rock based marketing company – or marketing agency if you will – that helps businesses get their online marketing in place, so that customers come calling them instead of their competitors. Our aim is to ensure your marketing works so well for you, that customers come calling you, rather than you needing to chase after customers.

Currently, we are demonstrating some of the ways that you can increase your ranking results. We are doing so with ourselves as an example, aiming to get ourselves ranked for the 3 words: Marketing Castle Rock.

Again these words are relevant for us since we are a marketing company and since we wish to get in front of our local community’s businesses and online searchers, and being located in Castle Rock, well then our words are Marketing Castle Rock for the purpose of this articles series (posts).

If you review the article series, you will find a lot of insights and valuable points. You will also learn why our chosen words are possible not the best and why they will make it even more difficult for us to get the coveted page 1 result.

The entire series is an important series for you the business owner, who wish to get ranked for relevant keywords for your local marked, so that you can get right in front of the right buying customers.

Marketing Castle Rock Ranking Took A Step Back

Two Steps Forward One Step Back

I finished the day last night enjoying the fact that we had moved our ranking for our 3 chosen keywords – those being Marketing Castle Rock – up from a page 21 three days ago to a spot on page 2. If you followed along you will see that one of our efforts alone moved us quickly from page 6 to page 2. On page 2 we had the number 4 spot, so page number 1 seemed to be within near reach.

Checking in this morning and out spot had taken a step back for a poorer ranking. OK, it’s actually only one position, so it really isn’t a big deal, but yet psychologically, it’s a step back from the high emotion of success to a set back of a full one position (not bad).

That’s what often happens, in marketing just as we often experience in life.

What happened here is kind of funny, but it also illustrates a point.

The number 1 spot on the Google Search results for Marketing Castle Rock has since we started about 3 days ago been held by a website that actually is called castlerockmarketing.com

It’s kind of funny, for said company has nothing to do with traditional marketing as such, but actually seems to be primarily an auction house for Cattle. That’s right they ones that say muuh. I guess that’s what I get for living in the West out in rural Colorado in the town of Castle Rock.

Now, first off, it proves a point that is worth for you to notice and that is, if you can obtain an URL (i.e. a domain name) that actually entails your keywords, then your rate of success for ranking for same words shoots straight to the top – even without you doing much of anything. Also as I noticed in this case, throughout all my searches for the 3 words of Marketing Castle Rock, these cattle auction guys held the number 1 position, so your position, just due to the right URL, is stronger than most of other efforts you can make (at least for now that seems to be the case).

This is an important point that goes towards how you choose your domain name and it should give you plenty of reason to think about what URL you could think of that might help you in your business.

As I said, these guys have held the number 1 spot throughout and today they even took up the number 3 spot and if we don’t count the Google Local Places results also the number 6 spot. Why?

Why you might ask, did they all of a sudden take up these extra spots, earning them a full 3 important and valuable spots on a page 1 on Google for MY chosen keywords of Marketing Castle Rock?

Beats me.

But they apparently have a Facebook page and a Twitter account and these two popped up and made an appearance this morning for the number 3 and number 6 spot.

Again, the names they have for these two accounts includes the words Castle Rock and Marketing or at least mkgt as short for marketing. Which gets back to the point I made before on the importance that Google places on your URL or Name. For you this means, that you should not only secure adequate account names for your business on the social media. Account names that clearly reference your business name or your URL name.

From a point of view of search engine results, it means finding something that’s descriptive of what it is you offer.

If you are a plumber and you call your company ABC, then it probably won’t help you much in any search results for plumbing services on its own. But change your name that you reference your business to throughout to ABC Plumbing and that changes straight away. Get a Facebook Fanpage called something like facebook.com/abcplumbing and perhaps a twitter account called twitter.com/abcplumbing and you have secured some pretty good real estate.

Now if you don’t post to these accounts once in a while, it’s probably not going to do you much good, yet, in checking in on the facebook and twitter accounts of my cattle competition guys, I found that they posted last on June 2nd 2015 and October 10 2014 on their accounts respectively. In other words not very recently and not very actively, but this only underlines the point of the relative strength that Google do place on the social media account (connected as said to the names of same accounts in relation to what you wish to be found under in a Google Search).

One may wonder, why the respective facebook and twitter accounts didn’t appear in my earlier search results, and when you ask me, my answer would be: Beats me.

Google sometimes works in mysterious ways.

That’s alright too. If it was easy to circumvent everybody would do so, and we would be left with little relevancy to what we found when we performed searches, I suspect.

The changes in the search results on and off, also proves a point I have made previously in this Marketing Castle Rock saga, which is that the internet is a live place. You can do your part to rank well, but others out there are doing things and especially when they are doing things that are relevant for the keywords that you are hoping to get ranked for, it will change the search results too, possibly pushing you back again.

Said in another way, it isn’t a constant.

It also goes back to what I have also posted previously in this continuing story about the fact that Search Engine Optimization (SEO) work is not a one time thing. You don’t just do the work once and get the results and leave it at that. If you do, it’s only a matter of time and your ranking is gone. The more competition for your chosen words, the quicker your ranking will be gone.

No, you will have to have some continuous efforts, but as I have stated previously, it might just be very well worth it.

Well, we will make a few more efforts and see where we will get with our quest to reach a page 1 spot in Google Search results for the words Marketing Castle Rock.

Marketing Castle Rock Now We Are At Page 2

We Are Now On Page 2 For Marketing Castle Rock

I spent the afternoon on the playground with my two small kids and my wife. I think we ended up there for about small 3 hours. Whew! That’s a lot for me to cope with, but the kids had fun and that was the important bit.

Following the playground we did some grocery shopping and returned home for some light dinner.

Curious as I am, I couldn’t help myself for checking where we were at.

And where were we?

On Page 2 of Google’s search results for the 3 chosen keywords: Marketing Castle Rock.

Yes, this is yet another follow up on the Get Ranked For Marketing Castle Rock saga, the work of which I commenced about 3 days ago. 3 days ago I was at page 21 and now I am at page 2. Not bad for just a few days with some effort put in place. On top of that some very low key efforts. Nothing terribly fancy. Nothing that cost me any money, only a little time and of course the implementation of some very key things that I know works.

Here are the results for current listing (click image to be able to read it):

Also as promised I will tell you more about “White Hat” Tricks as opposed to “Black Hat” Tricks and I will expand on why you should never make use of the black hat tricks.

Meanwhile, let’s see if we can take our ranking for Marketing Castle Rock to Google’s page 1. I actually now believe there is a chance we will get there. So here’s to Marketing Castle Rock.

I am thrilled and stoked. You should be too. Not so much for what this means to me, but for what you should have learned in the process that I have actually shown you along the way and what this could mean for your business.

Some of you will want to do things yourself and now you have more insights collected in one place for free than I ever saw myself personally. Some of you don’t want to bother doing things of this nature yourselves, but wish to remain focused on doing the aspects that you do best yourselves, and so you should be. For this latter segment of you, I naturally offer my services to make things happen for you. Imagine what a Google high ranking for relevant search terms relevant to your business could do for you…!!

Marketing Castle Rock Here We Come

Our Last Entry On Ranking For Marketing Castle Rock Moves Us To Page 6

In my previous post, that was post just about half an hour ago (depending on how fast I will type this entry here), I promised I would tell you about the utilization of “White Hat” tricks versus “Black Hat” tricks. However, I couldn’t help myself, but just ran another check to see how well we are doing for getting ranked under the keywords Marketing Castle Rock.

If you are following this series, which you can book mark from this link here: Marketing Castle Rock you will know that we set out just about 2 or 3 days ago to get ranked high with Google Search results under just the 3 words Marketing Castle Rock.

We started off on page 21 on Google and nobody goes that far into a search result really.

In my previous post from just this afternoon, we were at page 13, and now, our last entry titled When SEO Becomes A Game – Ranking For Marketing Castle Rock Continued less than an hour later and we have moved all the way to page 6!!!

Wait a little longer and I bet we are even further ahead by one or more pages.

Now, these results keep changing, so if you check in later, the results may be completely something else. That’s why your SEO work is never done and why you must keep at it.

However, it also proves that you can advance very rapidly.

Funny enough, a friend of mine saw my post yesterday and it incurred a conversation. She said to me, remember that “Google is slow”. I couldn’t agree more and I think my previous post’s placement proved that point entirely.

Anyway, here’s the result for now, still less than an hour after the previous post. Ranking us on page 6 for Marketing Castle Rock. (Click on image to be able to read the list)

Success With Ranking High For Marketing Castle Rock Just Ahead

When SEO Becomes A Game – Ranking For Marketing Castle Rock Continued

We continue our saga on how we are getting ranked high in Google’s search results for the keywords: Marketing Castle Rock.

To review what has been going on till date, please visit these two posts: www.amazingideasinc.com/marketing-castle-rock-time-to-take-my-own-medicine/ and http://www.amazingideasinc.com/quick-follow-up-on-marketing-castle-rock/

The two posts explain why I’m doing this and why it’s important. They also explain why my chosen keywords in fact are not the presenting the smartest choice and why I may in fact never get to a really good ranking for them either. Indeed, you may wish to review these posts just to see what you really shouldn’t do and instead to learn more about what you should do, so that you can get decent results.

Anyways, I just want to make this post short and just give you another update to our ranking.

When doing this kind of work, SEO, which stands for Search Engine Optimization, can actually become fun. It almost becomes a game. For you are doing small implementations of things, waiting a bit for the search engines to follow up with them crawling the sites and then you check in again to see if what you did carried any weight and made any positive changes for what you are tying to achieve.

My efforts and if you will experiment started a couple of days ago. I put out the public announcement that I wanted to pay attention to some of the local businesses in the area in which I live and my business is located, Castle Rock. I made it known that I would lie to help more local Castle Rock businesses with their marketing and help them implement the right strategies, tools and marketing systems that will grow their businesses, revenues and ultimately their profits.

The following day, I kind of realized that I haven’t made any efforts at all into making my services nor my company’s presence rank in any search engines. I help businesses with marketing and love to see the positive outcomes the come about from my help, but in my eagerness of helping other businesses, I had completely forgotten to implement similar strategies that I recommend any business to do for my own business. In other words, I was a bad example of what I tell others to do.

So the day before yesterday and yesterday, I implemented the first few steps. I instantly moved from page 21 to page 15 (as well as actually had an appearance on page 1 of Google, via my Google Local Places, which hadn’t appeared earlier). Last night a quick search and I had moved to Page 14 and this morning, for the keywords Marketing Castle Rock, I was at page 13. see images below for clarification.

Again, if you read my book: Mikkel Pitzner’s Trade Secrets To Marketing Your Business Online, you will know, that a page 13 ranking isn’t gonna get you anywhere. In truth you really need to get to page 1 of Google.

However, we are moving forward and steadily improving our ranking. We will do more steps and see where it will take us. So far we have only done some very small types of steps and they are completely real as opposed to mischievous tricks just to fool Google and other search engines. I don’t go for the so called “Black Hat” tricks. Yes, they may help you out, and yes you may even get to page 1. But in due time, Google will find the loophole that you used and if your material isn’t of relevance nor helping people, then in all likelihood you will lose your ranking and possibly even for good. It’s really just a matter of time.

Therefore, only employ real efforts that makes real sense and provides real value.

Here, I’m aiming to get my ranking up for 3 simple words, Marketing Castle Rock. Marketing for that’s why we do and those are the kind of services we provide, and Castle Rock for that’s the town we are in and while we would like to help people from anywhere really, it just makes sense to help some of the businesses from the local community. In addition, go back and review the previous two posts for they reveal to you, why a local business may provide you with more business and more revenues than others. Again the two previous posts are:
www.amazingideasinc.com/marketing-castle-rock-time-to-take-my-own-medicine/
and
http://www.amazingideasinc.com/quick-follow-up-on-marketing-castle-rock/

Now in closing out this post and going back to the title of When SEO Becomes A Game, well, then I cannot help but getting excited about seeing positive results come from the steps you implement in order to get the ranking and positioning better. It’s almost a game. You implement a few things. Then you wait a bit. Then you go and test to see if you got anywhere with your efforts. It’s actually kinda fun.

If you didn’t get anywhere, then you will have to revisit what you did or even better think about what would have a better outcome for you. Then you try that and see if you got it right this time around. And so on. And so on.

So onwards towards a superb ranking for the 3 chosen keywords: Marketing Castle Rock.

In the next upcoming post, I shall tell you a bit more about the utilization of “White Hat” tricks versus “Black Hat” tricks, so be sure to come back and revisit us.

Local Marketing, advertising and website creation company in Castle Rock is helping other local Castle Rock businesses flourish online

Local Castle Rock marketing company is helping local Castle Rock businesses flourish online

Thankfully, the economy today is way better than what we saw in the aftermath of the last major financial crisis that set in especially in 2008, but every business is ever still facing challenges, competition and obstacles.

To help overcome some of the struggles, local Castle Rock marketing agency, Amazing Ideas Inc., is helping local businesses with their online marketing, so that they will appear in relevant searches and so that they stand a better chance of capturing the customers that actually are looking for them and their products and services.

Mikkel Pitzner at work at Amazing Ideas Inc “When you put in place the right online marketing so you show up in relevant searches online, you will see an increase of buying customers actually calling you or coming into your store. In other words, the customers are now chasing you instead of you chasing your customers”, says Mikkel Pitzner, CEO of Amazing Ideas, Inc.

With more customers coming in the door, your revenues grow and you will have less wasteful energy going towards chasing customers and less sleepless nights about how you will meet the next bills and other obligations you have.

A business that is thriving offers a better opportunity to focus on the important parts of delivering the right products, services and customer experience. A business that struggles is often too busy putting out fires, instead of focusing on elements that will improve how the customer sees the company and improve results. 

“I have been there myself”, says Mikkel Pitzner, who has run a number of small and larger businesses spanning many varied industries. “I’ve had both successes and failures and I recall how it was when you were struggling in a business and you were just trying to keep afloat. In truth, you were so busy dealing with elements of crisis and trying to keep up with next bill coming in, that you just couldn’t seem to shake loose and actually get the business up and running on all cylinders.”

Every business is in need of some marketing. Rarely was there a product or a service that just sold all the time without someone making sure the world knew about it.

“You can have the best product or the best service in the world, but if no one knows about it, you are likely to end up broke”, says Mikkel Pitzner.

Having run several businesses, Mikkel Pitzner soon learned the need and importance of good marketing. In the first many years he did, what most business owners did; went out and hired a traditional marketing company to do his ads and other marketing for him.

However, the world has changed and continues to evolve. That means what used to work best, may in fact not be what works the best now.

So commencing especially in 2008 and ever since, Mikkel Pitzner has feverishly studied marketing and marketing tools and he has studied the best and with the best.

Especially, Mikkel Pitzner studied the area of online marketing. He states: “Although, I love a good print ad or an intelligent TV ad, I believe the online marketing is what holds the most promise for businesses, not least smaller businesses that have a limited budget.”

With the right elements in place and doing the right efforts a small business can actually get placed extremely well in the relevant searches online – and can do so, even within a doable budget.

That’s why, when Mikkel Pitzner set out establishing his marketing company, Amazing Ideas Inc., he decided the focus would be on online marketing.

“We can do other things too and of course we have our list of resources and experts in other marketing areas that we will call upon if necessary. But if your online marketing sucks or is seriously lacking, well, then you are likely to be throwing out a lot of money on any other area of marketing.

Why?

Because we all Google everything these days. If we get enticed by an ad, we invariably look up the product, service or company online. If we find nothing or if we don’t like what we find there, then there is no sale. We are validating our purchase before we purchase.

I often see a yellow page ad or other piece of advertising. Then I go and look up the advertisers online presence and see hugely lacking efforts. In my objective that means that that advertiser just completely wasted his or her marketing spend.” 

Amazing Ideas, Inc. moved to Castle Rock last year as Mikkel Pitzner and his family moved to Castle Rock. Currently, Mikkel Pitzner and Amazing Ideas Inc., are focused on helping other local Castle Rock businesses get their online presence up to par, so that they will show up in relevant searches online, so that they will increase their revenues and bottom lines. They can help your business too. Perhaps it’s time you give them a ring.
