The False Promises of Annuities and Annuity Calculators | MGT 307 - DJJ  Spring 2014 | Scoop.it

James R. Edwards's insight:

Be wary of who who trust with your money. Know the difference between fee based and fee only advising. 

 

S&P500 since 2008 would have been a better option than a fixed annuity. 

You lose your initial capital.

It can not outperform inflation.

 

Sounds like a loss to me.

How to Create a Successful Local SEO Strategy

How to Create a Successful Local SEO Strategy | MGT 307 - DJJ  Spring 2014 | Scoop.it
Local SEO can deliver the most highly targeted customers to your business. But you have to do it right.
James R. Edwards's insight:

Highlights: 

 

The title tag, meta description, images, and header tags all need to be adjusted for the targeted keywords.

The website content needs to be written for the visitor instead of stuffing the website with the main keywords.


The days of keyword stuffing are long gone, so write for the visitor and optimize for the search engines.


Businesses need to be creative and make customers aware of these review sites and encourage them to leave feedback.

Focus on the top directory sites instead of using some of the directory-listing services that claim to submit to hundreds of websites.

The search engines take these citations into consideration when determining the authority of a local listing, so make sure to put the extra effort in making sure that your NAP is consistent across the board.

Incorporating user-engaging content and infographics into the local SEO plan are two great ways to build natural links because they result in social sharing. This is the type of natural link-building that the search engines like to see, and reward accordingly.
