SSL Certificate upgrading to https

4 Benefits of Upgrading Your Site to HTTPS

This is a very important post for any business, organization or individual with a website. Starting now (October 2017), most sites will display a “Not Secure” warning in Google Chrome browser (and eventually others) if they have not upgraded from “http” to “https”.

4 Benefits of Upgrading Your Site to HTTPS

In order to avoid your customers seeing the warning security messages on your website, you are required to purchase a SSL Certificate. What is that exactly?



From Go Daddy:  An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website and encrypts information sent to the server using SSL technology. Encryption is the process of scrambling data into an undecipherable format that can only be returned to a readable format with the proper decryption key.

A certificate serves as an electronic “passport” that establishes an online entity’s credentials when doing business on the Web. When an Internet user attempts to send confidential information to a Web server, the user’s browser accesses the server’s digital certificate and establishes a secure connection.

SSL Certificate upgrading to https


1. Trust – HTTPS notifies users that all data provided from the website they are visiting is trustworthy
and has not been altered.
2. Confidentiality – All all the activity completed on the website will be encrypted.
3. Protection – HTTPS protects sensitive information.
4. Search – Now, more than ever, Google Chrome is putting emphasis on HTTPS in the search ranking algorithms.


In order to purchase a SSL certificate, please contact us or your other hosting provider.

Our partner Advertising Is Simple is offering certificates (along with implementation on every page and handling redirects) as follows:

$119 for the first year, $99 for each additional one or $299 for 3 years.

Successful Video & Marketing Automation in 5 Steps

Successful Video & Marketing Automation in 5 Steps

At this point, you know why Marketing Automation is so important. You understand why video is a great communication tool. You’ve seen how goals influence marketing automation, and how video can be incorporated into those goals.

Last time, we talked all about why using videos and Marketing Automation is beneficial for your business. Today, we are going to dive in deeper and discuss Successful Video & Marketing Automation in 5 Steps.


Successful Video & Marketing Automation in 5 Steps


  1. Center it around the Story, Not the Sale. There is a heap of sales clutter on the Internet that is actively annoying and repelling your customers. Don’t let your brand be that guy – instead, your video should be centered on the story and not the sale. Remember, the same rules that apply for written content marketing apply for video marketing – concentrate on the value you’re providing for your customers.
  2. Make it the Best 10 Seconds Ever. 1/5 of your viewers will click away from a video within 10 seconds or less. Short and to the point. Get right to the grit of the tale and manage expectations from the outset (within the first 5 to 10 seconds). Try sparking your audience’s curiosity by asking questions and using teasers to hook their attention right away. Your video should immediately convey its value and answer that “why should I watch it?” question that will be on your audience’s mind.
  3. Lighten Up and Stop Being so Boring! Encourage your video creators to be creative and take risks. Think your B2B audience can’t handle humor? Don’t feel constrained by what’s gone before you in your industry and don’t try to emulate your competitor’s stiff tone and drowsy script. Stand out and take a chance on being funny.
  4. Optimize for Search. The first thing you should do to derive the maximum SEO value from your video (before you upload your video to any sharing sites) is to host it on your own domain. It’s important to enable embedding on your video as this will help you increase the likelihood of receiving inbound marketing links. Ensure that your videos are tagged with relevant keywords and fully explained with fleshed out descriptions and unique titles. Keep this rule in mind: it is had a box, it has a purpose – Google needs you to fill it out to help you rank.
  5. Educate and Prove Yourself. Did you know that 65% of your audience are visual learners? One of the most powerful methods you can use for video marketing is to educate your audience. Teach your customers how to use your product or service and provide useful tips on how to make the most of it. Or, create a webinar to showcase your industry knowledge, position your brand as a thought leader, add value to your consumers’ lives and collect leads in the process.

The Mobile Technology Movement

Why Businesses Need to Keep Up With the Mobile Movement

It is no understatement that mobile technology has greatly impacted the world these last few decades. Our mobile phones play an integral part of how we perform day to day tasks , keeping us connected 24/7.

The mobile movement has changed consumers’ expectations as they fully expect to have a mobile optimized experience and will abruptly abandon a website that is not mobile friendly.

According to the ‘KPCB Internet Trends 2016 ‘ study, the average mobile user spends 4–5 hours on their mobile device, has 30 apps installed and uses about 12 apps per day . Most of the time is captured by 3 apps. In the United States it is Facebook, Chrome, and YouTube. Globally its Facebook, WhatsApp, and Chrome. With Chrome in the top 3, it’s important to optimize interactions between the mobile app and mobile website.

It makes sense that  app creation and usage has exploded. Game and productivity apps allow us to play, multi-task and improve our lives – all from one device.

As a business owner or marketer, don’t discount your industry as not right for mobile marketing. At this very moment someone out there is using their smartphone to search for exactly what you offer.
