Lead generation is of primary concern to all marketers! Without the ability to generate leads, you won’t have business. After all, you need the leads to come in so that you can tell the “lead” all about your perfect service, product or ideas.
Home Construction companies do lead generation by calling into your homes and business asking if you need repairs on windows or gutters. If someone claims they are interested in visiting with the sales person then that’s a “lead”. The lead turns into a sale when the sale actually takes place. It is no longer a lead which is a good thing. There are warm leads, and cold leads, and hot leads man are those the best. The hot leads are the ones screaming, “Yes please sell me!”
In performing internet marketing we implement traditional marketing into your plan and seo strategy. If your website requires visitors then consider the visitors your leads, cold leads though. When they start clicking or request information they become a warm or hot lead, and if they actually buy, then all the better. Typically it takes a while with lead generation to convert the lead.
There isn’t a smart person out there that won’t investigate the company, product or service first before a purchase. There are those magic moments when your site is so great that a visitor will actually buy on the first visit. There’s studies that show it can take up to 10 visits for a lead to truly generate into a sale.
If you need help with lead generation then visit our blogs often, and our main site oAssist. Oh,…and are you still asking the questin, “Who in the world is Kathryn Sias?” (big smiles, goodnight, it’s late as usual and I’m still not resting)
Having a team of seo experts is fascinating. Every single day we discuss professional seo and how it will effect our service, and our clients web-sites when the next google change takes place. There was the Panda update, now the Penguin, seriously cute names for updates that literally scare the “shipe” out of you. You never know what google is going to do with the “organic rankings”. Luckily we’re professional seo experts at your service!
Let me explain,…
The best way to stay ahead of the game is to remember, it’s not rocket-science understanding that a professional seo experts team will know just how to keep your site ranking high. Seo can be highly mathematical and complicated so some. Trying to explain seo to certain clients is very difficult at times. Of course a client wants and needs to understand all the details of the seo, how seo works, etc., which often is impossible to explain.
Luckily all our clients are trusting of our service. I do the best to answer their questions, and when I do I can hear them wondering what I’m taking about. but they continue to smile.
Mainly, and it used to be otherwise, the content needs to be streaming, web-sites babied with new updates each day, etc. etc. Good content is essential. We no longer can go grab just any link and place it. Links now have to be totally related to the topic of your own site. Quality is commended over quantity of junk spam links. The problem is not everyone has access to the authority sites they need to have links on.
Seo experts, you bet! We’ve run a system of upwards of 400 websites at one time, testing and evaluating every seo method under the sun. We’re outranking some of the best companies for our own terms to prove we know what we’re doing.
Doesn’t it kill you to see an seo site with a pagerank of 1? Unless it’s a seriously new business then I don’t know if I would trust the low-ranking company to raise my own rank. Do you know what I mean, lol?
Every time google crawls for page-rank we go up. Our main sites are PR4 or above, and our new blogs like this one is a current PR2 but very new! We expect to get our main site up to a PR7 in no time.
Why don’t you stick around and watch our progress. We would love to watch your own progress too!
On one hand you can’t be arrogant. You know what you’re doing but it’s hard to articulate to potential clients. You want to tell them you’re the best thing since peanut butter, but on the other hand, “What’s an expert seo company to do?”. We can’t be over-confident, or can we.?
I might offend you with my confidence, but I can tell you that the old saying, “The proof is in the pudding!” is true. Give me a site that has never been touched by “spammer seo” companies, or give me a site that got hit by the “penguin update”, and I can get you back to page one, guaranteed! The proof is in the pudding, otherwise, “What’s a seo expert company to do?”
Yes indeed, just another manic Monday. Monday’s are typically the busiest day of the week. After a weekend of receiving emails to your inbox, when you arrive at your desk on Monday it truly is manic. Of course there are the unending phone calls from not only clients, but family and friends too. When you work for yourself, like can become clearly complicated.
I can honestly say that I must have nerves of steel to do what I do. For this reason we keep all “negative” influences from our life, work only with the best team and clients, and refuse to let any one take away our joy. If not it would be manic Tuesday through Sunday as well. After Mondays are over, I’m usually settled in, (smiles). Hope your Mondays are great. I’m learning how to deal with “just another manic Monday” myself.
As usual, take care! Oh my goodness, there’s the phone again, I have to run now.
I don’t think there’s a day that goes by that someone doesn’t ask me the question, what is black hat seo? I wanted to write an article on this topic months ago and decided I didn’t want to place the term, “black hat” on any of my sites, and since have changed my mind. Why? Because there’s nothing wrong with explaining black hat seo or what it is, it’s wrong to do though, very stupid.
Think of the cloak and dagger man wearing the tall black hat. He looks evil and nasty, which is likely where the term first originated.
Black hat is a method of seo that is dangerous. There are also many methods of black hat that including hiding text on a site to fool the search engines into thinking a particular site is really on a different topic. Does that make sense? You can’t imagine the spammers out there. I work with about 20 different clients and trust me, if I see any black hat methods or even the mention of it, I usually run so fast you don’t even hear my feet hit the floor.
Another type of black hat seo would be to spam the internet by blasting 1000′s of links using automated software. It’s just not fair to those who are doing white-hat, or all-good seo. Google recognizes it and eventually will de-index your site, take it out of the searches, and then where will you be? Stop, drop and listen! Our clients sites are never effected when updates are made to googles algorithm. There’s a lot of great information on what exactly is black hat seo so go do your research, and in the meantime I hope this has helped.
That’s always a great question. What does google want from me? That’s the million dollar question. The answer is not so simple.
First of all I’m an seo expert that likely won’t give you the entire answer (big, big smiles) but I will tell you the basics of all good white-hat seo and it starts with quality content. Google realizes that anyone can build or buy a lot of junk spam links and that competitors can spam the hades out of you. They just won’t let that happen. With that being said, if you write for your life and post your quality content on a quality blog and or already ranking pages then you’re in there. You should also place only one contextual link in each blog post and don’t overload your page with not-so-quality content. I’m serious, if the content is good then you won’t be asking the question, “What does google want from me?” ever again.
There are other white-hat methods that will help your search term reach the top of the search engines. If you need help from an seo expert that can truly rank your term then contact me on my site oAssist.com I have already ranked the term: expert seo to googles number one position using my methods, so I’m sure I can get your site to the number one position too!
What does google want from me? Google wants great content placed on good pages!!
If not a current list, it is still a list -
Mobiquitynetworks.com (The USA’s largest mobile marketing provider’s)
Bling iPhone 4 covers (These are some of the coolest iPhone 4 covers on the market and a nice guy to boot. Everyone wants bling or 3d iPhone covers, everyone has an iPhone so everyone loves the covers for sure!)
Incorporate Online California (If you’re wanting to incorporate online in California then the most affordable and reputable site online is my client AAAfiling.com Not only is he another really nice guy, his site is awesome!)
Pediatric ENT This is a site that I work on with someone else, I do some of the seo consulting for another client who manages this account. (Not to sound confusing, lol)
Vintage Womans Flat Shoes (Talk about better than a “Coach” or “Chanel” bag, this is a designer shoe company world-famous to literally “boot”. Lebunnybleu.com is one of my fav’s for sure, after all I am a girly-girl!)
Gutter Cleaning Service Long Island, NY Gillian is a professional indeed. After working with her this first month it’s apparent that her customers are truly number one and her work ethic in getting the best gutter clean for all Long Island customers is top on her everyday-to-do-list. Of course she services all of New York with Long Island being her primary location. Please take a look even if you’re not from Long Island (big smiles as always).
Women’s Activewear (This is a site I’m helping with an not an actual client but is yet another profitable e-commerce site that’s worthy of taking a look at. Womans apparel is not only a competitive term but so are many of the other terms we’re helping with. I love working for clients who have an already existing beautiful site. Without a great site it’s considered that 80% of the ones who visit or we send to the site via great seo would be lost. A visitor will quickly leave your site if it’s not perfectly graphically appealing and this client is one of the best. Take a look now to see for yourself. Womens apparel is my kind of thing
Storage Sheds (This is my first client, in which I am very proud to have. Kenneth Miller from Classic Building Sales has been with me now for almost 3 years. Oh wait, I purchased about 4 lake cabins from him so he doesn’t mind keeping me on, lol. His buildings are amazing, I know first-hand, and his customer service is excellent. Go check him out now. Oh and the term: Portable buildings, very competitive, is on page on usually in the one or two position. Missouri Portable Buildings and Missouri Storage Sheds are always in the number one position.)
Top 10 funny movies This client promotes a lot of article pages on his top 100 site. This is the second project we’ve worked on, he’s great!
Perfect Search Media As of today I have to say I miss Chicago. I used to live in Chicago, actually started my career there. After graduating I sprung out from St. Louis to Chicago to work. This client is an internet marketing company like my own and hands me 10 projects a week. I love each and every project he gives me.
So you are probably wondering how I do all of this and still obtain great results. I have a team remember? My team in awesome too. From the top down we all live clean lives, with solid goals and futures. My team shares the same passion for “right” as I do, and the same passion for “business” that I do. We refuse anything negative, no more drama is my mantra. I can honestly say with our recent team there has never been so much as a fight on any level. We truly respect and care for each other and demand the same from others.
I don’t know why we never shared our blogspot before but here it is. Every site needs a blogspot. You can easily raise the rank of these free sites by placing posts and links on your site for your own product pages, or from other pages you like. By adding other page links, other than your own, the blog looks, and is, more organic.
When a client has a website we always explain the benefits of building more websites that link back to the clients main site. Why? It’s because we were taught by one of the best seo expert services company in the business 360media. Our time at 360media (a site who represents Adobe.com) taught us to build external blogs back to the main site, whereby optimizing the main site that much better. Please visit our main site to see for yourself. We build beautiful sites.

Kathryn Sias Speaks
When Kathryn Sias speaks, people normally listen. This is because she knows what she is talking about. As an article writer and part of a great team that she has organized, I have learned a lot from Kathryn Sias and I am now speaking out.
Do you want to know what is being said about Kathryn Sias? As a previous owner of the top USA SEO Company, oASSIST.com, and a professional in marketing and management in a leading freelance website Odesk, Kathryn Sias has definitely made her name as a leading SEO expert. What Kathryn Sias is speaking about is marketing with passion. And what her clients are talking about is how her hunger for marketing has an appetite.
Kathrynsias.com offers strategies for adapting to a changing environment in the social media industry. She has a knack for targeting campaigns to the right markets. Furthermore, Kathryn Sias constantly seeks feedback on how PR staff can work successfully as possible with the media. The feedback in return becomes the motivation behind kathrynsias.com opinions and ideas.
Kathryn Sias has worked herself up in SEO marketing by striving to ensure that her former company, oASSIST, was productive. As a competitive SEO in the market, Kathryn Sias has developed a level of enthusiasm by guaranteeing an amount of financial compensation based on productivity and business management.
Kathryn Sias markets with passion by promising results for her services. Clients do not have to sign unless they rank page one in Google placement. Based out of St. Louis, she has recently showed results internationally in her marketing talent and management with the sale of her company, oASSIST.
What everyone is speaking about is how Kathryn Sias has worked hard to rank as a top provider for oDESK. Her reputation as an international expert SEO has been proven by bringing international traffic to her client’s sites. No one likes to be stuck in traffic. However with Kathryn Sias’s web marketing services, an increase in web traffic is right where you want to be.
A person can do a whole heck of a lot for their own self. I guess I’m old-school. I believe in getting up at the crack of dawn and with the chickens, no matter how late I work. I work 20 hour days 7 days a week to maintain a decent lifestyle. I see all sorts who are just plain wnwheheheh lazy. Yes plain wnwheheheh lazy. They work when they want to work and that’s it.
They (and “they” are everywhere you look these days, especially the younger ones with parents who have helped support them too much), yes “they” work for basic food, clothing, and even cigs and alchohol but not for anything more. They complain they don’t have this or that but they don’t show up for work on time and yet they get mad at those who chastise them.
This is Kathryn Sias that’s for sure. When I speak my mind, I go all out to make my point. I love everyone, and the persons I am talking about are everywhere, so I am not singling out anyone particular. It angers me though. It angers me that I have to work so hard and pay huge amounts of tax at the end of the year to subsidize food stamps and welfare for those who are offered work but refuse to. Yeah today is just one of those days! God love em’, they just aren’t grown.
Yes we have done it again. Sure we need to edit these videos and know they’re not perfect, yet! We were so excited to get these video’s for our Sovereign Funding Structured Settlements campaign that we hurried to the computer to upload the best Marilyn Monroe, and Lucille Ball Spoofs. Trust me, Tricia Cooper, actress in these video’s, and Sheila Friend, Videographer partnering with our own media and marketing team, has plenty of ideas for spoofs.
If you’re a new business let us help you brand your image. Branding your image is important. Helping clients remember who you are, and going viral is a marketing dream. We may have just beamed us up to Scotty with these videos. They’re awesome. Let us know if you agree, and how you would change the backgrounds. We have a great team of graphic artists, and video editors that will be happy to incorporate your ideas into our videos and we may just pay you if your ideas are awesome!
Work vs. family, it’s an age-old topic that many parents, particularly mothers are interested in. Recently I turned Kathrynsias.com into a “personal” and “professional” blog, whereby the personal vs. professional issue now plays a big part of which I am very liberal. I believe that a client wants to know who he is working with. By posting my new “Kathryn Sias Speaks” I have an opportunity to journal my day to day experiences pertaining to work and family. Trust me, it will be an interesting read.
No I am not a writer. You’ll quickly see a ton of grammar errors, maybe even spelling mistakes. Because time is of the essence when you’re balancing work and family, it’s not always possible to be perfect with the written word. Forgive me if my grammar usage and spelling gets on your nerves, lol.
And in business there are a lot of really nice persons, and also a lot of true jerkage. I know “jerkage” isn’t a word but it is now, at least in Kathryn Sias’s book. I intend to write a book someday, it will be another “interesting read”.
I have one man (I won’t mention names because I’m not tacky like he is) talking about me all over the internet. Who is this guy, I have never spoken with or done anything to? Read the rest of this entry »
Why does google keep changing things ?
August 4th, 2011
Google is always changing the way it ranks sites. That’s the problem with trying to do your own search engine optimization. If you are attempting to do your own seo (search engine optimization) please beware. You can ruin your sites chances of being seen by millions of google searchers, literally in a matter of minutes.
Google changes are always cool because they continue to find ways to rank sites that deserve the top ranks, and not just because the web master is a nifty link builder. I have said it a million times, optimization is far more than mere link building, and in fact it’s the link building that can really hurt you. Quality inbound one-way links from other sites who see your site important enough to include in their favorite links or somewhere on their site will always be great. Although some swear by article writing, it can in fact create a duplicate content problem when and if someone picks up your article and copies it. Some of the old tried-and-true methods are no longer options.
The best way to compete with the google changes is to keep writing great content for your main site. Keep your main site moving and busy by adding a blog post or two per day. For now, I’m almost afraid to do anything except blog posts with all original content. Obviously original content is the key.
I deal with all types of clients and each one requires a specific method of optimization. Some client sites have literally 100′s of posts on them, but not all original information. Instead, I see a lot of duplicate information, even when cited can still be a problem. When you write for your site, do not copy a word from anywhere else, write from the heart. When you make posts to your external blogs, such as a wordpress or blogger blog, please make sure you don’t copy your content to your blog site. Make all new posts to each blog and you’ll be doing great!
Why does google keep changing things? Google makes it’s changes so that only the best sites reach the top. It’s frustrating sometimes, but as we move along in the world of internet marketing, we quickly see the benefit of all the google changes.
It’s sad but true that google changes the way it does things and quite often I might add.
1. Link value is more important than ever. Having a blog that is not purely promotional but adding links to outside high ranking content such as news sites, etc. is smart, particularly if you’re a finance company. If you’re an artist website you can write an article, post only one link that is not directed to your own site, an artist site would consider sites such as museums, .org museums or .edu sites, etc.
2. Posting only your own links on a site is going to damage your site. Make sure that you build external blogs not related at all to your site and make just one or two links to your own site, inter-mingled with tons of other links, all different for each blog. You can’t’ get more organic that this.
Let us know if you need help with your search engine optimization. Notice that we didn’t build a link in this article, lol. Hey we don’t mess with google. Google rules remember?
It’s true! Google beats to their own drum. Google seems to be able to do whatever google wants to in ranking our sites organically. It can be a never ending battle to optimize our sites. There is more to getting your website seen than simple seo. I have always said that sales will depend on more than just great link building, rather target your market, brand your product, make sure your product is great, and demand perfect customer service from your own company. Without all the ingredients you won’t succeed. Thinking smart is sometimes hard, when you have “links for brains”. I am screaming, “Great Search Engine Optimization” is more than link building. When google decides to deflate the value of a particular link or an article, they’re the boss. There’s nothing we can do about how google chooses who get’s ranked one page one, except to perform every factor of seo to perfection. Meaning, you can’t just build blogs, you have to do everything, the directories, the profiles, social bookmarking, article writing, classified ads, blog carnivals, rss feeds, image tagging and uploading, videos’, podcasts, you name it! If you plan on being a huge success in internet marketing then remember this. No one has all the answers, and google beats to their own drum!
Okay I’ve heard it all! This market is huge! After doing some research today I realize that there are a lot of shows, television, entertainment, and star sites that get a ga-zillion hits each day. The Jerry Springer Audience alone is huge. Visit our own idea of how to advertise your site on different types of websites that will draw traffic back to your own site. I know that a lot of my own blog readers are very conservative so please, no offense to your own tastes. I merely have a point to make by saying, “The Jerry Springer” late night market is huge!
Twitter, if used correctly, can drive a great deal of traffic to your website. There are other ways to drive traffic, i.e., social bookmarking, article writing, etc., but Twitter is really cool. If your followers are loyal they will be inclined to visit every post you offer up on Twitter.
The key is to get good, targeted followers. If you need help on how to use twitter to get more traffic to your website contact us now!
When searching for social media marketing tips, it can be a never-ending process. In fact, you should never stop researching how to better optimize your web site, using social media marketing. And face it, it’s all about the grandfather of social media marketing, meaning Facebook! Facebook is the worlds largest social media marketing network.
Adding profiles to Twitter, Digg, LinkedIn, and all the social media market is easy too! Yes it’s time consuming but you really can learn a lot in the process. If you’re on a budget and you can’t afford our services, or the service of a social media marketing expert, then you can sit for hours on end for months at a time, in the evening while relaxing at home, adding links to your profile site, making sure your URL is out there everywhere.
A useful tip about social media marketing is not to trust sites that offer link farming, or other type of black hat seo. Be very careful, in fact you can’t be careful enough, to not place links on sites that google doesn’t see as relevant or otherwise great links. It’s always best to trust an expert if you can afford one. Our parent site, oAssist LLC, offers affordable seo, along with other social media marketing tips. In fact visit all our client links, and don’t forget to visit our blog often for updated information on seo and other social media marketing advise.
We couldn’t be prouder. Toronto condos, specifically CondoWondo.com is our stylish new client. You always get a prized “write-up” when you sign on with oAssist or with Kathryn Sias. We love telling the world about each and every one of our best clients and CondoWondo is certainly in the top 10.
We have promised them a page one position and they’re sure to get it. Toronto condos that are as stylish as the ones they list, easily searchable, is a cool-looking site and will see increased organic position for their keywords within the first month guaranteed. As you can see, we represent international clients as well as working on expert USA seo.
If my site goes down for a while, does it hurt my seo? The answer can be yes! When your site goes down for longer than 48 hours, the bots that searched for your site previously, who are again searching or crawling the web, frankly they often do not return if they do not find you on a 2nd or 3rd search.
