Message from the Chief Executive Officer

This week’s e-newsletter will be arriving to you in a different format…. sort of.  I know that I can be rather verbose at times and getting an email that contains 1000 words or more is sometimes too much for anyone.  So, from now on for a variety of reasons, my emails will be shorter.

My newsletters won’t be any shorter, however.  You see, part of what we try to do when we do emails, newsletters, press releases, and updating content on the web is to do one thing:  DRIVE TRAFFIC TO OUR WEBSITE.

Driving traffic to your website helps with your Google rankings.  The better your rank, hopefully, the easier it is for site selectors to find you.  Thus, all you have to do to read our newsletters is to go here.

As you go there, you will see that we have revamped the website.  Let us know what you think.

One disclaimer – not all the information is updated yet.  That takes time, but we wanted to get the site up and then we can update pages as time allows.

Thanks for being a part of our lives!
