Marketing was my first love, then I found branding. Branding is my passion, my lover. Branding is my master, I am its mistress. Sounds fun, right? Well, it can be. Then, SEO comes in and ruins all the fun.
As I have mentioned before I have done some sort of marketing and web publishing continuously since I was 16 (12 years), and I have had the same thorn in my side the entire time. SEO is what drags me down.
SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is an art form that I have yet to master. I have finally discovered a way to make it sexy. Search engine marketing experts can take that not so glamorous part of marketing and make it sexy.
One of my favorite mantras is to never pay someone to do something you can do yourself. Well, in this case, I can’t do it myself, and I don’t want to. (I know, that sounds bratty!) A search engine marketing firm can combine every skill set included in SEO to help insure that your website is not only on the front page of Google (or other big search engine) but also help it place in the top few spots. Some experts say that if you aren’t in the first 4 spots on Google, then you don’t exist on the internet. That’s bold!
Search engine marketing firms are not only for search engine rankings, they can also help with social media. Social media is the new way of getting attention. In today’s world, some consumers look to Facebook and Twitter before searching. This can make or break a company. Social media optimization helps insure that you are who the consumers find when looking for a new product or solution. There are many layers to social media that are hard for the novice to break through.
Even a branding dominatrix like myself needs help with some of the more technical aspects of marketing. So, enlist some help so you can concentrate on what you do best! Be your own dominatrix and let the master of SEO give you a hand.

As I am sure you have noticed, NighLon has a new look.
Even though I had been wanting to redesign, I accidentally changed my them (more on that and tips later). I wasn’t going to take on that challenge quite yet because I am participating in The SITS Girls 31 Days to Build a Better Blog. I have learned many things, and this is just the start of the second week. This week, I am taking a “look under the hood” of NighLon. This will include: checking for broken links, creating a best of page, making NighLon mobile friendly, and some other nitty gritty stuff. (I promise that you guys will benefit!)
I have already made some great blogging buddies and have some project in mind to work with them on. These guys have inspired me to write this post. We have all had so much fun sharing our tips, tools, secrets, and favorite websites.
Today, I am sharing one of my favorite websites, that I only discovered this week. I am already addicted.
Catchfree.com is basically my new go-to site. Catch free highlights the best of the web. There’s a catch though: Its only free services. AMAZING! Their tagline describes it perfectly: Perform everyday tasks for free.
One of the features I really like about it is that Its not just site-owner opinion, users also rate services and give critiques. You can even narrow searches down and see how closely the service matches your criteria. I have only begun to explore. This will definitely be my first stop when searching for useful web services.
Google: Watch out, I won’t be spending as much time sweet-talking you!
Some of the services featured on CatchFree are:
listen to children’s books
backup computer files
build a website
build a landing page
I stress that this is just a very few services highlighted at Catchfree.com
To all my readers (and SITSTAS) I hope you find this as beneficial as I do.
