Use Branding Effectively on Your Company Website

Use Branding Effectively on Your Company Website | curating your interests | Scoop.it

Your company’s branding is more than just the logo that is printed on your stationery; it is the entire image that is projected by your business. Good branding is often the only discernible difference between market leaders and their competitors. Good branding is what makes you stand out from your competitors in the minds of your customers. As important as branding is in the real world, it is even more vital to your online presence where you are trying to be noticed among hundreds, if not thousands, of other websites that offer products and services similar to your own.

The Future Of Working From Home

The Future Of Working From Home | curating your interests | Scoop.it

Does your company let you work from wherever you want? If it doesn’t, it may be watching as progress passes it by. The next generation of working doesn’t require a desk.

 

Sometimes it seems that a new study comes out every day touting the benefits of working remotely--it makes you more productive, happier, potentially even more creative. Companies are catching on, building offices designed for employees to work remotely, with better systems for communicating with telecommuters (i.e. giant TV screens), fewer desks, flexible seating arrangements, and less floor space overall.

5 Reasons for Using Google+ to Market Your Business | curating your interests | Scoop.it

Connecting your company website to its Google+ page and posting links on the site to your latest blog posts will ensure that web crawlers reach them sooner, and thus, they will appear in the SERPs sooner. Because Google will give a high credibility rating to the links on its own social network, these sorts of postings will generate a better page ranking than similar link postings on Twitter or Facebook will.
