The Howard Law Group was looking to capture market share in the Atlanta, Ga area. Originally practicing in far west Georgia, they wanted to expand their presence.

I often hear the argument whether to post blog content on the home page or not. Having an Atlanta Web Design company, I can say that people are still not a big believer in content rich websites. I personally prefer it. I want to learn everything about the culture of that business in a very short time span. That seems to be backed up in the Web Design Industry. If I don’t see good content right away, I usually move on. Posting Blog content on your home page immediately draws your visitor in and keeps them on your site. I’ve put together a few suggestions that will make your home page “wow” your audience. Cater the content to your Audience Your home page content should focus on your customers’ needs and what you can offer them.

What makes one blogger better than the other? Nothing really, however, they may have better habits. Here are 10 habits that can make you a much more effective blogger. 1. Stay OFF Facebook.

Facebook is a great tool to share your content, but it can also be a huge waste of productivity. *Tip to Becoming a Highly Effective Blogger: Don’t view Facebook as a fun way to take a break. As a blogger, Facebook is a marketing platform. Looking at friends’ photos is not going to make you money, or get you traffic. Limit your Facebook time to once per day. While on Facebook, concentrate on activities that will help grow your blog and readership. 2. Check e-mail no more than 3 times a day.
