Colorado Springs Web Design | Bracewell Web Works 719-632-1340

I’m contacting Colorado Springs Web Design and Web Development companies in advance of relocating to the shadow of Pike’s Peak. The time I spent actually exploring Colorado Springs was mostly for possible housing. Finding colleagues has to be done via my favorite pastime — Internet research.

That research yielded several possibilities, but one stood out — Bracewell Web Works. That’s because Michelle Bracewell’s business did surprisingly well in being “findable” in the search engines. It’s no surprise to my Internet Marketing colleagues that “Web Developers” tend to be fixated on programming and layout, with SEO and backlinking an afterthought at best. This Web Diva knows her stuff and supplies good content on Web marketing for prospects to peruse.

My only quibble with her approach to Social Networking and Web 2.0 implementation is that it’s so two years ago. In the realm of SEM/SEO as a blood sport, being that far behind is deadly! If I or my colleagues were to depend primarily on MySpace and Facebook, with a nod to Squidoo lenses and blog comments, we’d be dead in the water.

Our competition would be putting out SlideShare.net presentations, YouTube videos, HubPages.com Hubs, WordPress blog posts with powerful keyword tags, Craigslist.org and Backpage.com classified ads and hefty, optimized Squidoo lenses. Then they’d get serious about getting backlinks from high Page Rank websites run by colleagues and Joint Venture partners.

Of course, for local search, that kind of massive overkill we Direct Response Internet Marketers use is only for the most competitive local niches. You know, like getting a WordPress blog post for Colorado Springs web design. 🙂

McFarlane Sports Figures | Sports Picks from a Fanatic

McFarlane Sports Picks was just a long-tail keyword to me, when it was first mentioned to me earlier today. I was familiar with SPAWN, the creation of Todd McFarlane, but knew little else about him or his companies.

McFarlane Toys produces some of the most detailed, well sculpted action figures in the world. Naturally, such figures have a fanatical following among those who love to collect. Sports figures, in particular, are a big market, relatively speaking.

Ron Johnson is one of those fanatics. He has a website dedicated to collectors of “sports picks”. However, he doesn’t stop there. It’s possible for you to get a detailed, customized figure made from photographs you send — a service far beyond buying and selling collectible figurines!

If you’re into sports picks, you must check out Colorado Springs’ most avid collector online at http://www.figurefanatic.com/.
