“The Staff at iePlexus Has Been So Helpful…”

Client TestimonialAllow me to take you on a tour of the building of my website.

I have written a book and have done research and other tasks on the computer but, it wasn’t until 2008 that I decided to build a website for a business. I have a love of farm animals and wanted to build a business around them so,

www.outaroundthebarn.com was born.

With a lot of help from Stores Online and their store builder, I have a website that I am proud of. When it went live online on Jan. 5, 2009, I was extremely excited but nothing was happening. There was no traffic to my site and I was not sure where to go from there. I knew I had to market my business but, wasn’t confident enough in myself to know what to do. I began receiving phone calls from different marketing companies and started to get confused. They were making promises that I would make lots of money in a certain time frame and they just knew that their company was the best for me. I wasn’t so sure, I had been jilted before and wasn’t ready to just let go of my money.

Beach Bum’s Business Booms With iePlexus’ Help

warrenworthleyWhen Warren Worthley moved back to his home state of Florida after retiring several years ago he bought a boat and dubbed it “Paradise,” and paradise is exactly what Worthley had planned for his retirement.

“I grew up in Daytona Beach, Florida,” he said. “I swam before I could walk, played on the beach and fished everyday. I was destined to be a world-class beach bum.”

This self proclaimed “Florida boy” had spent years working as Dean of Engineering and Technology at Purdue University in Indiana before making his way back to the Sunshine State. His new boat, a 23-foot Donzi fishing cruiser, was perfectly designed for navigating the shallows of Charlotte Harbor, where Worthley planned to hook trout, redfish and snook.

“We have stopped all our ad campaigns since signing up with iePlexus.”

iePlexus,

We have noticed considerable more sales and inquiries at our website. We attribute this to the fact that we have iePlexus.com working for us. We have stopped all of our PPC ads and other meager ad campaigns since signing up with iePlexus.

And yet we had many more sales orders this past Christmas season than in previous years. We know “finally” that people are finding our internet web site.

Thank you very very much.

Judee

iePlexus Marketing Is A Recipe For Online Business Success

Family mementos are an important part of passing memories and traditions from one generation to the next. For most, these cherished items include jewelry or photos – but for Long Island, New York resident D. Boyd, they’re pots and pans.

In fact, Boyd still uses some her grandmother’s cookware passed down to her by her mother. But these aren’t just any pots and pans, they are cast iron.

“My mother used cast iron constantly, and I learned to cook using those pans,” said Boyd.

There’s no childhood memory better than that of delicious cooking smells wafting from the kitchen. Boyd said her mother would often make her scrambled eggs for breakfast. And if she was lucky, she would make her favorite dish, “German meat patties,” for dinner. The meat patties weren’t anything complicated – just a combination of hamburger meat, onion, egg, bread crumbs, and spices. But they were scrumptious nonetheless.

Decades later, when Boyd’s parents were elderly, she and her husband moved in with them to help out.  Boyd began doing most of the cooking using her grandmother’s cast iron.

World AIDS Day 2008

Today, December 1st, is World AIDS Day. As a company, iePlexus has always been committed to being a charitable organization. We think it’s important for companies like us to take the lead in talking about issues that affect all of us and doing something for those less fortunate. A little while ago, we highlighted poverty through Blog Action Day, and some months ago we participated in a charity golf event to benefit Habit for Humanity. Today, we’d like to highlight the important topic of AIDS.

World AIDS Day is observed every year on December 1st, and was established in 1988 by the World Health Organization. World AIDS Day provides governments, national AIDS programs, faith organizations, community organizations, and individuals with an opportunity to raise awareness and focus attention on the global AIDS epidemic.

iePlexus Company Profiles

Fingers CrossedWith the adoption of Web 2.0, no longer can a company rely solely on their own marketing to establish an online profile and create company legitimacy and credibility. The read/write web has enabled anyone with an internet connection and a keyboard to become part of the conversation, and the reader is left with the daunting task of sorting through the fiction and non-fiction to arrive at an intelligent conclusion. Needless to say, this affords anyone with an opinion the opportunity to express it, regardless of whether it is beneficial to the web community in general.

The bottom line continues to be caution. Certainly there are benefits to having anyone and everyone weigh in on a subject, increasing the collective intelligence of the web and sorting the massive flux of information. But is there anything to stop misinformation and lies, besides one’s moral obligations? (more…)
