How can your small business “insure” success? Ryan Hanley, our latest BizSugar contributor of the week, can answer that question from at least two perspectives.
“I wear two hats,” says Hanley.
Every now and then someone asks....13 Blogs to Learn From:
1. Basic Blog Tips – Ms. Ileane has done an outstanding job on her blog. She has many contributors that write for her now. There is always something fresh on her blog and she is accessible as well. One time I had a question and she replied via a short video. I was stunned. She did that for me? She is the queen of podcasts. Have you listened to one of her podcasts yet?
It's great to see my blog listed here and also my podcast is mentioned. Here's the blog for my podcast:

1. Read Authority Blogs That Keep People Informed
One of the best things you can do is read other blogs that share valuable information. The first two that come to my mind are Basic Blog Tips and SEOmoz. Note that this isn’t an exhaustive list, but both Basic Blog Tips and SEOmoz have kept me up to speed on the latest social media changes, SEO techniques, powerful blogging plugins, etc. If you expect to get your blog moving at all, you have to look at the blogs that are already in the fast lane.
Each industry has their own standards on marketing tools, real estate is no different. However, not many real estate agencies utilize the power that online marketing tools can provide for their business to see a higher exposure rate, better ROI, and overall more sales. Marketing tools for real estate have come a long way over the years and are only continuing to get better--now is the time to start using them to their full extent.

Karen Woodham from Blazing Minds has always inspired me. I love that she is always kind and thoughtful and she’s also very talented musically. I remember when she would blog about anything and really didn’t have a niche blog so to speak. As time went by she experimented with all sorts of ideas but she always managed to maintain her unique outlook on the blogosphere. She does movie reviews these days but still manages to connect with her audience on a deeper level by sharing personal stories every now and then. She is also a bit of a celebrity these days, but she stays grounded and I think she is an awesome role model.
Ileane is truly a very active blogger with exceptional networking skills. She has an awesome blog – Basic Blog Tips. You can turn to her for WordPress blogging, social media, podcasting, YouTube marketing and tech tips!

I'm not a pro blogger though. My blogging journey started some two months ago and I have struggled to create an impact. While moving on, I have read tons of blog posts and have come across very interesting bloggers especially on the famous blog Engage platform.

SEO Time Wasters
This is an area where I feel people waste too much time today. Not because SEO is a waste, but many of the strategies we used to rely on have died/are dying.
SEO is becoming more and more manipulation proof. In other words, activities that can be easily replicated will have less impact than they did before.
Anyone can submit a bunch of articles, forum signatures, amass oodles of links through schemes, submit to numerous directories, etc. Spending hours per week on those activities will no longer give you the same benefits you may have realized years ago.
So you could spend your day chasing backlinks or write one really solid article for a popular blog like ProBlogger or Basic Blog Tips.
In this episode of the Ms. Ileane Speaks Podcast I discuss how content curation with Scoop.it can help you establish yourself as an online authority without writing your own content on a blog or website.
Scoop.it is now integrated with Bufferapp which extends the social sharing capabilities to include:
Facebook pages and Profiles
LinkedIn and LinkedIn groups

Google has put so many awesome tools at the disposal of bloggers and small business owners that at times, it's almost impossible to keep up with them all. Google wants you to succeed with your online endeavors but let’s face it, we all know that they are getting more then their fair share out of the deal too.
Yet, as bloggers and webmasters, when we stop to think about all the perks we get from Google, two things should stand out in our minds above the rest:
- Google Analytics.
- Google Webmaster Tools.

So you've done all of your on-page SEO and have been religiously checking and updating all your social media profiles - well done. But I'm afraid that isn't quite enough if you thought all that could get you to the top of SERPs.
There is an old saying that says. A Bad Workman Always Blames His Tools. In Internet Marketing. There is another saying that says.
“A Bad Marketer Always Blames Someone Else For Their Failures.”
The second saying is a lie, I just made it up. But in my opinion it could easily be true.
Part of the reason why most people fail online is....
