I often customized email marketing efforts for our clients in order to make their newsletters look more professional and match their websites.

Interesting, the UAE doesn’t like us.

Paul Baverey found on his trip to the UAE that our little site was blocked! He was doing some research on WooThemes (where we are Affiliated WooWorkers) and found that pronetindy.com was unavailable.

Shortcuts

I am continually amazed how in life there really are no shortcuts.  In sports, one can take performance enhancing drugs to get to where one wants in a short time.  In college I lifted weights with some guys who were “juicing.”  I was amazed at their ability to lift hard and recover quick.  While I […]

Need a Referral? Ask Yourself for One!

Last week I was at a client’s office doing some good ol’ IT support – I ordered a new Dell laptop to replace a dead one and I upgraded the memory in another – and I stopped to chat with the owner. We were talking about the economy and how it’s affecting business and in […]
