News and tech tips from Tammy Finch at Web Services
Web Tech Newsletter
All I can say is WOW about my new local listings service.  These local Internet directories get their information from phone books and social media and you wouldn't believe the mistakes. 
This listings are sites like Yelp, Dex, YP, and 50 others.  Once I have control over your listings, I can make any changes you like.  For instance, Chris at Web Tech told me his hours on Google said he closed at 5am.  I made the change to 5pm, went directly to Google and it was already updated!

This is a great service for companies who have relocated or changed their phone numbers.  Or just want your company name in front of people who speak into their phones - "Find sporting goods" or "Find Tacos".

Have you Tried Facebook Advertising?

Here is another great story about the effectiveness of Facebook Advertising.  A company was having an event for women only in the Kansas City area. We ran an ad for only women, 25 mile radius around Kansas City, who enjoyed cooking.  We didn't waste the client's money by getting in front of people who aren't interested in their services.  It's cost effective!  To give you an example: 25 dollars can get you in front of 4,000 -5,000 people.

If you are interested in doing some Facebook advertising, contact me.  I can help you reach the clients you want whether it's just getting more "likes" to your Facebook page or promoting a service or event. 
Website Help
I was surprised at the number of clicks on the Munge Wedding site last month.  Thanks for all the well-wishes to the happy couple.
