MARKET CHAOS!


Posted on: August 25th, 2015 by Chris M No Comments
Yesterday was one of those days where you just saw RED! The markets really were scary and investors around the world were jumping up and down trying to figure out what's going on. It's always worrying when we see such weakness, but folding to the weakness is normally what gets us in trouble. Of course that's easier said than done, but reflect upon previous situations to try and find some kind of grounding. I think ri...

E-TOLLS AND INSURANCE?


Posted on: August 24th, 2015 by Chris M No Comments
As a Capetonian, I haven't had to worry too much about E-Tolls. Sure, I've followed the news, I've heard people moaning and I've travelled to Gauteng a few times. I'm fortunate in that it doesn't affect me too much. But I must say, I was interested to read an article the other day on the topic of E-Tolls and insurance. I'm no expert at insurance, in fact, I'm far from that but I cover a lot of topics to do with fi...

GOOGLE FAVOURITISM


Posted on: August 4th, 2015 by Chris M 5 Comments
This morning I was looking through some ranking reports for a few clients in different industries and I noticed that in two instances websites that were ranking higher were website's owned by none other than Google. This got me thinking, does Google give it's own ventures preference and more SERP love? I remember reading an article quite some time ago that stated that Google does not give ventures it backs a helping...

I’M HIRING!


Posted on: July 9th, 2015 by Chris M No Comments
It has come to that point again where I need to try and seek out a truly talented digital marketer who has a very keen interest in search engine optimisation. Someone who can be given a task and is able to run with it, return when it is complete and not be afraid to ask team members for assistance. Someone who understands search engine optimisation without having to turn to Google for answers and someone who wants to...
