Rescue Me!

Rescue Me!


Posted By on Dec 18, 2012

When Riverside Mountain Rescue Unit contacted me, they were using Dreamweaver and making painful, time-consuming edits to their website.  It was a chore to update and only one person in their volunteer organization was qualified to do it.

How to Use a Facebook Fan Page


Posted By on Mar 15, 2010

One of the statements I hear most often about social media is “I just don’t have enough time to be involved in social media.”  This is followed by a close second “I don’t see how Facebook relates to my business.” If offered the opportunity, would any business turn down a free television advertisement?  Why not?  Because the view is that a television advertisement reaches in to people’s homes...
