Atlanta SEO

Small business presence in Atlanta

Stores, services and goods sold for the Atlanta market have more and more been relying on Web Atlanta to help improve their visibility with Atlanta consumers. Business owners are coming to see that the old ways of local newspaper advertising, direct mail and yellow pages are entirely replace by the era of consumers using the internet from their computer to find reliable companies to acquire goods and services. We especially know that consumers that cannot find their favorite brand names quickly on google can be lost to the competition. That is why our web-sites compatible with computers, iPhones and Android devices are so popular with Atlanta businesses and service providers.

Atlanta consumers are most likely to use the computer to find a phone number, even for a business that they may have looked up in the yellow or white pages just a few years ago. Even the web-sites that replace the printed versions of these directories have been replaced by google local listings, now called google places, and reliable consumer feedback sites like Kudzu.com, Yelp and Angiie’s List. Now the web 2.0 revolution involving Facebook and twitter has left many business owners worried that they might not be doing all they need to do to properly manage their brand name today.

Web Atlanta has the answers and offers a thorough program of internet management for companies that want to stay on the cutting edge. With the advent of the ‘Cloud’, the increased use of smaller devices like iPads, iPhones and Android tablets, and the newly evolving web 3.0 standards with the ipV6 revolution forward looling business owners have successfully lept over unprepared companies by using the computer science of Web Atlanta to grow against the grain of the general trends of the economy.

If you are ready to maximize your exposure to the marketplace and leapfrog the businesses that don’t see the importance of taking these steps, talk to the experts at Web Atlanta SEO for web presence management packages tailored to fit your needs and budget.

Choosing HCM CRM ERP Software

Selling software is like selling water, claim it’s from a Pacific Island, market it to your sales people, throw in lots of cotton candy and coffee mugs, and charge a lot of money. At least that is what our competition does. You will be told that great things come from adopting their system, and when it fails, it’s your fault, you should have evaluated your needs more carefully.

This time you hire an army of consultants, to match your needs to the myriad of choices, and this time, you will find the right fit. You failed again. The consultants just had a song and dance to play on your latest lament, and empty your bank account.

Here is the fact you just won’t learn. No single computer program is going to handle everything. Some CRM systems dial your phones, others post to Facebook, some even interface with Quickbooks or manage a website shopping cart for mp3 audio files.

The answer is not to find one with the right features, but to quit looking. Quit looking for something that will never exist, and start building on what already works.

The heaviest selling occurs around ‘Customer Relationship Management,’ i.e. more than one of your employees needs to keep abreast of the activity on a given customer.

But an employment agency has dozens of recruits (inventory) and a handful of customers. You need to manage your inventory. Your workers are your inventory. Your clients need first and foremost to get willing, sober and responsible individuals to fill temporary employment positions.

Let’s look at what CRM claims to accomplish;

  1. it helps to improve and enhance customer communication
  2. it streamlines daily operations
  3. it allows you to focus on your customers

Cotton Candy.

How about steak instead. What have they bought in the past? When? How much did they pay? What is their phone number? If you are providing temporary help for a handful of local businesses, manage your inventory. If you sell lots of widgets to hundreds of customers with a dozen customer service people sending the same or similar quotation each hour, a shared contact book may suffice, but if your 10 or 12 sales people have hundreds of products and hundreds of customers and dozens of orders, you need a system.

That’s actually not CRM. That is ERP. So why are you shopping for CRM? Because you are shopping for the wrong thing. You have been mis-educated. By the very people that want your money, giving you what you don’t need, all while patting themselves on the back.

Why does CRM deal with fluff and not the steak?

Because to deal with the steak, you have to deliver results. Take for example a program like QuickBooks. You can produce invoices, make payments, and ultimately produce financial statements that can be used to evaluate the success of your enterprise from year to year. It can be used to complete your taxes, to enforce cash controls, reconcile accounts, monitor budgets and track expenditures.

But CRM is different, it’s a rolodex, that multiple people can use at the same time! Very little benefit for way more money than you paid for QuickBooks.

Also simple, but you will fail. You should start with Microsoft Exchange Server. Because with that, the company now can use email to communicate with your client base, all with a shared rolodex. The server is a few thousand dollars and the IT consultants are twice that per year. But the benefits are finally defined.

  1. aid communication among your team
  2. contact prospects, clients, leads, build relationships with contacts
  3. coordinate and communicate with co-workers
  4. distribute written policy guidelines and instructions to your sales force

For many businesses this would be worth amortizing thousands of dollars a year. But here is the problem. Why would you spend thousands of dollars for something that is practically free? You can implement gmail shared contacts for dollars per month. For ten people in your office, you could have save yourself the cost of servers, IT consultants, dedicated computer rooms, new network wiring and a proprietary framework and the expenditures might well be less than 200 dollars a year. A little elbow grease, and you save a lot of money. If you have fifty people in the office, the cost of an enterprise level server for email and contact management might change.

QuickBooks doesn’t look so bad. Quickbooks for the bookkeeper, the owner and the Vice President of Operations and gmail for everyone else. You can even cloak your gmail addresses behind your companies domain name, your customers will not know how simple you keep things.

The problem is not that everyone is gullible. The problem is that your sales force is gullible. And once you commit to a system, your sales force will be the first to jump ship. So before you begin, stop lying and let’s make an honest assessment.

  1. Do you need a trouble ticket system?
  2. Do you need to measure marketing campaigns?
  3. Do you need an industry-specific calculations to complete a quotation?
  4. If you budget 1 percent of gross revenues for software training and customization, what’s your budget?
  5. efficiency
  6. intuitive
  7. transition
  8. adoption

If an approach fails, can the data be quickly moved? Can the system communicate by phone, fax, email, post, Federal Express overnight, text messaging, multimedia messaging, whatsapp? Your number one goal should be to take the next step, not the next leap.

Wow, OK. Maybe there is a system that can do several things. Wrong again.

If you are looking for CRM, find a solution compatible with Zapier.com as this will be a step toward verifying that you can insert information and extract information from your CRM solution without undue expense.

Technology now makes the communication of data (if authorized) possible. Leverage that. Don’t enter into a system that does not meet that low threshold. That means, if you are comparing the notion of installing QuickBooks to Zoho cloud, the choice is made for you. If you are comparing the prospect of cloud based vs. local network-server QuickBooks, the decision is obvious. Whatever drawbacks there are to the cloud are outweighed by the pick up and move to a new platform criteria.


How much training did you receive from google on searching? On using email? If your CRM solution fails because of a lack of training, it wasn’t the solution they sold you. It was a lot of wasted training. You failed again.


You will fail by being idealistic. Be pragmatic. Form a solution, move on. Your workforce may need written policy. Write it and enforce it. Until you change it. If they don’t like it, they can work for another company, where they may finally learn to accept it.

SEO Atlanta

Website traffic is meaningless if the visitors are not qualified and meaningful.

The last decade has seen a total change in the way Atlanta businesses should make themselves available to consumers. Where as ten years ago an advertisement in the Yellow Pages was the basis of getting your phone number in front of prospects, now our presence on the internet is the means by which consumers find our phone number, more than the yellow, white pages and information (411) combined. Other means of brand name development simply must be complemented with an easy way for consumers to find your phone number with Google, Yahoo and the Bing search engines.

For Atlanta businesses to successfully compete online in a cost-effective way, internet marketing methods must be utilized and to their fullest advantage. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in Atlanta as well as the development of successful directory listings at Google and Bing is the most reliable means of achieving online visibility and are a component of higher search engine rankings

LAMP is an acronym for an arrangement of Open-Source technologies that fit together with great synergy to provide working database driven systems and database maintaining systems. By definition, wordpress and most shopping cart packages that you can install on a web-server are a LAMP application. Because of the inclusion of Apache in the recipe, LAMP is by definition, internet or intranet related, and these applications would use a browser for GUI purposes.

Modern ERP and CRM applications, even those with heavy internal firewalling and proprietary GUI software have worked for years developing a seperation between the business logic layer and the client interface. For example, the complex liturgy of calculated taxes and deductions related to the gross and net amount of a New York paycheck are the business logic segment of an ERP or accounting program. The pretty looking check on the screen of your Quickbooks program is a graphical representation of the underlying data and calculations. Once upon a time, a programming language shouldered the burden of both tasks.

In the LAMP philosophy, the PHP layer, sometimes also called the Perl layer, can be subdivided again to achieve this result. The Smarty Template system is a convenient way to do this. In the Smarty Template framework, visual elements are written in a high level html with css using only a tag to invoke business logic elements where needed. For example, the gross calculation from payroll hours, which may be the product of regular time, overtime, holiday time, vacation pay, etc. and the series of tax deductions, retirement contrbutions and health plan participation costs may be embedded in the very display of the paycheck with a single tag that instructs a web-page, before formatting the html, to invokde the gross to net.

For Example;

<head><title>Paycheck for employee {{dv_emp_id}} – {{dv_emp_name}}</title></head>
<body>{{bl_pr_gross_to_net dv_emp_id}}

Would start creating a web page (I forget to define the source for the css) but invoke business logic from the payroll modules called gross_to_net for the employee number contained in the dynamic variable dv_emp_id before creating the body of the web browser document.
