Shameless Plug for an Honorable Cause

Romanian Mission Trip

The Albany, GA community has been very good to me, and I try to be very good to it.  In addition to doing everything I can to improve the visual presentation of my clients, I try to be involved in community service opportunities as well.  I don't say this to toot my own horn; I say this to preface the fact that we live in both a local community and a global community.  I am a citizen of the Albany area, but I am also a citizen of this world.  It is my desire to "give back" (if you will) to this local community.  It is also my goal to reach beyond this local community to other parts of the world.

In less than a month I'll be attempting to do that.  Our church is seeking to establish a relationship with the people in Făgăraș, Romania.  It is our desire to partner with a church there and help them in the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through resources, prayer, training and edification.  We will be sending a group of people over to Făgăraș in the middle of August to lead in a Bible Conference.  I am humbled to count myself among those who have been asked to go.  It is my prayer that I will be able to make this trip time and time again as our relationship with this church deepens.

As with most overseas work, the cost is high, but I believe the benefit is eternal.  To be perfectly honest, I need some help raising the money just to go.  For those willing and able, I am including this PayPal link where you can make donations to go toward my trip to Romania.  You may also write a check to the address listed below if you are more comfortable doing that.  I assure you that no amount is too small (or too great) and that I truly appreciate every donation.  All donations will go to our church and are therefore tax deductible.  Donations will be accepted and useful all the way up to the day we leave for the trip on August 13, 2015.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call, text or email me!  I would love to talk with you more about our prayer for the people of Făgăraș.

Thank you for your time, consideration and prayers.
Soli Deo gloria!

Symbols for Business

It's Just a Website

Symbols have been all the rage lately, haven't they?  A symbol of a woman will be on the $10 bill.  A symbol of the Confederacy will not be flying in South Carolina.  (Or will it?  I can't keep up.)  A symbol of the rainbow has taken over facebook profiles pictures.  And soon the symbol of America will be affixed to nearly every home.  With all of this talk about symbols, it's good to know that everyone has a firm grasp on what symbols are and are not.  Oh, wait—they don't.  Not to worry, I am here to help.  Let's talk about what symbols are, how they are good/bad, how to use them for business and maybe get just a little bit political.

It's Just a Website

It's Just a Website

As some may know, I am getting married in less than a month! As excited as I am, I must say the planning can be quite overwhelming. There are many factors to consider and hundreds of choices to make. I've had to make so many decisions regarding flowers, cakes, chairs, photographers, food, etc that I'm even feeling a little worked up just writing about it now! However, one key point my fiancé continues to remind me is this: At the end of the day, we will still be married. If there aren't enough chairs, we will still be married. If the food isn't tasty, we will still be married. If the flowers wilt, the cake falls over or the guests refuse to dance, we will still be married. I then realize that I've placed too much pressure on the details, when I needed to focus on the big picture. The same can be true with websites.

Purchase Decision Timeline

It's somewhat axiomatic to say that a website is a good way of disseminating your information.  We know to keep our websites up to date.  We know to write blog posts.  We even know to promote it all via social networks.  We know, that for a good company, education is always a positive way to influence potential clientele.  Information helps people make a good decision.  But, how much time do we think about the key to comedy?  Timing!

Are you getting your information out too late in the game?

Optical Illusions

Would you believe that it's merely an optical illusion that it's been a month since my last blog post?  No?  Well then, I beg your forgiveness.  I have had much to say, but less time to say it, so I have kept my mouth shut.  Today, I take the time to talk about something both fun and important: Optical Illusions.  Now, I know that doesn't sound fun or important, but do not worry.  I will not ask you to stare for hours on end until your eyes cross and you see a fish, a bird or your very soul.  I just want to take some time to talk about optical illusions and how they should impact how we advertise.
