Support VisibleU By Admiring This Video :)

This is our promo video.  What many people don’t know is that it was almost completely done in house.  We only went to an outsider to get the music and sound mixing done.  Take a look.  We’ve posted it on YouTube, and we think it’s pretty sweet 🙂


The Official Launch of VisibleU is this Wednesday!

VisibleUMonths of intense labor has finally paid off … Visible Shops is very happy to announce the launch of VisibleU!

The official launch of VisibleU is on Wednesday, October 21, 2009, at the NY XPO for Business. It’s the region’s largest B2B show, featuring a full day of business opportunity, growth and value. Not to mention plenty of time to network! If you have time to stop by, we highly recommend it. You never know who you’ll meet – besides us, of course.

In the meantime, we wanted to let all of you know that VisibleU is up and running right now, and we’d like all of our friends from Visible Shops to see what we’ve done and how you can benefit from it.

Through the past several years we met with many small business owners who really liked our concepts, our methodology and our people, but said that we simply cost too much for them. We decided a year ago to do something about that. We resolved to find a way to bring our concepts, methodology and expertise to every small business owner that wanted to take advantage of Internet marketing.

The rules we set for ourselves were simple.

1.    Must be affordable for all businesses no matter how small.
2.    Must be able to educate small business owners on Internet Marketing concepts and tools.
3.    Must provide access to our professional Internet Marketing Staff.
4.    Must be scalable so all businesses can get what they need.
5.    Should not require a long term contract.
6.    Should always deliver a positive ROI.

We did it! Now it’s available to you. Visit the VisibleU Web site and check it out.

But wait – there’s more…

George on What's different about VU

George Hermann, Internet Marketer

George Hermann, Internet Marketer

We’ve been teasing you a bit with hints about our upcoming launch Code Name: VU.  It’s time for another one, and we think you’ll enjoy it. First, it’s time to let you know, VU stands for VisibleU.  It’s huge, it’s awesome, it’s rad, and it’s almost ready.

George Hermann, co-founder of VU was in my office discussing our marketing philosophy and what makes VU different.  I liked what he was saying so I turned on my mic (always on my desk – another clue) and recorded the rest of his thought.  No editing, no second takes, no scripts.  Just George.

Enjoy and let us know what you think!

Hiring the Internet goes Mobile

iphone_screenshotSome of our particularly sharp-eyed readers may have noticed that we’ve just upgraded our blog.  After years of being hosted as part of the community of blogs, we’ve decided to make the move to the freedom afforded by self-hosting. Our main reason for making the switch is so that we can make use of some of the vast number of WordPress extensions to add extra features to this site.

For instance: this blog is now available in a slick format that’s optimized for mobile devices, courtesy of the sexy WPTouch plugin. Just visit on your iPhone, Ipod or Android phone to check it out.

The Online Marketing Cash Funnel

What is the online marketing cash funnel you ask?  Simple: low-cost online marketing solutions that help your company meet and exceed its business objectives.

Though the Internet has been around for a long time, many companies are still struggling with how to take advantage of online marketing to improve their business.  For this reason, we decided to expose the elephant in the room and put together a survey to see how you could use online marketing to begin funneling success to your business.

When we recently surveyed 97 small businesses in and around New York, the overall question was simple: Is your website meeting your business objectives?  To answer, we asked these 97 businesses 9 important questions to discover whether the elephant was being ignored or whether it was being leveraged for success.

The results laid it out in plain English: Companies with Internet Marketing Strategies in place more often report that their website is meeting their business objectives.


A Little Strategy Goes a Long Way

Of companies that reported that their website was meeting business objectives, 53% update their website weekly, and 72% update their site at least monthly.  Whether or not SEO is part of their marketing strategy, frequent updates help keep search engines hungry and coming back for more.  Even more importantly, updates keep the site fresh and relevant, showing a visitor that behind this site is a company that is constantly innovating and improving.
