Just Launched –

Click our post title to review a new site that we just launched last night!

This is a 54 page low cost franchise small business opportunity search website that we did with our Quick Launch program. This site was able to be fast-tracked and completed in less than 3 weeks as we used a customized Quick Launch template to get a quick start.

The site has been optimized for performance, organized to be able to find franchises by category and alphabetically, and optimized to generate new leads for the site owner.

If you have looked over websites that feature small business franchise opportunities, you will find that this site is head and shoulders above the others with easy to read and find information. Check it out!

Contact Form Woes And The Solution

Occasionally we have a client who is using a low-end web host or who is self-hosting and does not have a cgi-bin or scripting enabled in order for us to install a contact form processing script. Sometimes this has lead to expensive programming charges. We do not offer programming and so we have to contract out this portion of a project adding to expenses.

We have found a service that will process the script for you on their servers and so far it looks like a clean and elegant solution to a thorny problem for some clients. You will want to click our post title to review the site With a premium account for $24.99 per year, now any client can have a professional seamless contact form installed on their site without complex programming initiatives. I think that it is a very smart solution.

Loving The New Yahoo Sponsored Search

Watch out Google AdWords, Yahoo has started the rollout of their new search engine marketing interface and it is sweet!

The interface is a huge step into the future for Yahoo. Initially you may feel that it is similar to the Microsoft adCenter interface, but this one really works! What I really like is that once you get over the initial shock of the change and the new account structure, the interface is very usable.

Yahoo has created some very nice reporting features and allows you to graph dynamically several options to watch lets say clicks versus impressions, or impressions versus conversions. The editorial review process is now almost instantaneous, and the ad interface is really quite nice.

Overall Yahoo has a winner with their new control panel and interface. Best of all for clients who need regional targeting Yahoo’s really works!

One quick comment, for new accounts, I am not sure if you will automatically go into the new interface, but if you don’t pause your account until you are asked to migrate.
