If you don’t have a smart phone and you’ve been wondering what people are doing with their mobile phones all the time, here’s the answer: TRYING TO FIND YOU.
All smart phones (iphones, androids, and blackberries) have applications on them that allow people to search for you on their phone. And they’ll find you and your reviews quickly IF AND ONLY IF you have a public business listing to find. (Smart phone owners probably already know this).
So if you don’t yet have your business listing set up on Google Places, make sure you schedule time to do it ASAP. Head to Google Places now!
If you’re looking to build a website on your own and need to find a good hosting service, I will strongly recommend Dreamhost. I’ve been using them since 2007 and it’s been great. They have a great user interface, really nice one-click install software (assuming you know what that is…) and really good customer service response when you do need them for something. They cost a bit more than discounters like godaddy, but they are top-notch. Plus, I’ve got a little freebie for you that’ll make dreamhost a lot more attractive to you: A DISCOUNT.
All you need to do is go to dreamhost.com and enter the promo code IAMAROLFER to receive $20 off their 1 or 2 year hosting packages. That puts them right at the same price as godaddy for a much better service!
