"A place to highlight your portfolio, location & value proposition.
Anchor your advertising & marketing efforts (SEO/PPC) while building your community and protecting your reputation "
My multi-media portfolio is online for your review. Think of it as my VIRTUAL STUDIO. Consider this, in the old days all we had was PRINT and RADIO. We have come a long way from those days and I can certainly attest to how much fun it was. However, there's a new sheriff in town and no matter how nostalgic you are about how simple life was back in the day at some point you will need to create and update your content more frequently in order to satisfy the constant appetite of a Global Economy, that changes constantly and communicates at the speed of light.
So... although the BIG PRODUCTIONS will always be the BEST, remember that your budget is NOT UNLIMITED and your customer is SHOPPING SOCIAL 24x7, SHOPPING LOCAL anytime, SHOPPING MOBILE everywhere and because they are SHOPPING CONNECTED to their friends and your customers they probably have another option right in front of them. Can you really afford to make them WAIT too long?
You can OPTIMIZE the EZ stuff first like your social profiles...
you'll need a website to control your message
and truly analyze the business potential of your ideas for :
events community blogs information brochures portfolios showcases
freelancers consultants subscriptions branding
culminating in that most mysterious of all sites an eCommerce store for
manufacturing wholesale retail drop-ship affiliate publisher advertiser
Once that's done, its a breeze to get you a mobile app so that your fans can download from
Apple-iTunes or Google-PlayStore
and of-course, in this new millennial media landscape, you could even be a
LIVE broadcasting SUPERSTAR to the world in a matter of minutes.
We both know none of this is "rocket science" but it sure is time consuming :-)

requires 1-2 weeks
Helping you set-up your first sellers account/store in the Amazon or eBay marketplace will allow you to start selling your own home-made creations, establish a drop-ship business and even setup FBA ( Fulfillment By Amazon ). Down the road your could become an OEM vendor that not only stocks items directly at the Amazon facilities but actually sells them exclusively to to Amazon so they can re-sell on their own. :-)
The process is lengthy but not necessarily complicated but registering and setting-up your stores Branding, Themes, Frontpage, Product uploads ( Title, Description, Image Links...) in CSV/TXT/RSS formats. Choosing the right Categories, Sub-categories ( up to 300). Selecting from the many Layouts & Features plus configuring your Shipping Fulfillment, Payment Gateways ( Amazon Payments, PayPal, Visa, MC, Amex ), Fraud Protection, SSL certificates, Carts, CheckOut, Confirmation pages, CRM/SFA ( Dynamics, Saleforce, HubSpot ) tools ( MailChimp, Constant Contact ), Traffic and Sales Analytics and finally SEO, PPC, SMM and Afilliate campains ( ASdsense, CommisionJunction).
