Hi Abacus

I too struggled with the same problems.

The copy reads….”Call upon [company name removed to protect the stupid ] to enable you to do what you do best – run your business. We’ll look after marketing and promotion.” .

Boy could I relate. I laughed out loud at the ‘to protect the stupid’.

If I can offer you one piece of advice it is this….

When choosing someone to market your business (online) take note of their alexa ranking. Alexa allows you to assess a websites traffic and popularity. If you have your own site you can compare it to your competitors. Alexa is free and is one of the most accurate tools available.

You can also install the Alexa toolbar to your site. It takes just a minute or two and once installed it will appear in the bottom right corner of your menu bar. This way every time you visit a web page you will be able to view the sites popularity. If a site comes up ‘no ranking’ it means that it isn’t generating enough traffic for Alexa to rank them.

The reason that this is important is that if someone is offering you marketing services you would expect that they would put what they know into practice on their own site. If their own site isn’t doing that well then how well are they going to be able to help you.

You can download the alexa toolbar at http://alexa.com/siteinfo I am no way affiliated with this tool I have just found it very useful and wanted to pass it on.

Good luck
Karen
