Squarespace: The Best Website Solution for Small Businesses?

The first Moondog Marketing podcast of the new year starts with a look at Squarespace, the do-it-yourself website builder platform. After years and years of working with Wordpress, I decided to give Squarespace a try for a photography project I’ve been working on after I had little time to manage plugin and security updates for the Wordpress site we were using.

Source Gorgeous Photographs

Recorded December 14, 2017 Episode 215 Fantastic, gorgeous, eye-catching onbrand images will become more and more important in 2018.

Your website needs better content

Released November 6, 2017, Episode 212. I've been obsessed lately with the dearth of good content being created by brands. Particularly SMBs working in the b2b space. Although we all know how important a great website is, time and time again we're talking with businesses who just don't know what to publish online.

Recorded in the Dog House Studio at Moondog Marketing, September 8, 2017 Episode 207 MarketingProfs recently published the results of a study where they, together with Ascend2, looked at what kind of content functions best as part of the lead generation process. It was quite a surprise as they found that Research Papers were top, closely followed by video. Blogs were way down there followed by lowly infographics. On this show I discuss the ramifications of this for small...


Is Wordpress the Best Solution ?

Recorded August 28, 2017 A lot of small businesses that we work with have Wordpress websites; however, because solo entrepreneur's or SMBs don't have a lot of resources, many skimp on security and back ups. This has got me thinking whether Wordpress is the right solution for their website. As data security becomes a bigger issue, and a company's web presence imperative to their reputation online, I get frustrated when I see businesses not ensuring that their Wordpress is kept up to...
