I’ve come to an epiphany lately. It may seem obvious, but it truly changes the way you perceive things. The truth is that everything is local. Think about it – what is synonymous with the internet? Sex. Travel. Weather. News. Sports. They are all download of pirates of the caribbean: at world’s end movie very […]

For every 20-30 emails we get at iBegin asking that we fix an issue, 1 of them always has the veiled threat of a lawsuit. “Fix my # or I will sue you!” “We have moved – fix it or I will have my lawyer deal with this!” etc etc. Of those threats, 1 out […]

Many readers here at my blog found me through my prodigious commenting on other blogs. And dare I say it, most of my comments contribute directly to the topic at hand, with little self promotion.

So I’m at the tail end of LeadsCon, getting ready to go home. To me, the best two sessions were ‘Keynote Address: Lessons From the Leaders’ and ‘Uncovering Local Lead Generation’ The first was an interesting story – how things were done, how much cost (hand regged!), and so forth.

ReachLocal – recipient of $67million in funding. The footer includes a link to ReachLocal Directory … which is nothing more than an ODP directory. What exactly is the point of having that?

They’re hoping that […]
