 I thought I’d share two postcards that were just prepared on my new program, Canva. I decided Publisher wasn’t making the cut!!!  It was time to raise the bar, so I purchased Canva. I need to practice using it and becoming familiar with the options available.  There’s a Free Version but I decided to buy the full program. I had my granddaughter, Brittany show me how to use it. She’s a marketing major with two years under her belt and is very familiar with this marketing program.  I think the options are wonderful.Here’s the postcard we, Brittany and I, created for tammy and Andy.   We also did a postcard for Joshua for a mailing in another town.

At a recent virtual conference for home builders, I sat down for a candid discussion about SEO for home builders. Most home builders have a favorite search term that they want to rank for. But is that really the best term to target? If you have the right target keywords, how exactly do you get your website to rank #1? Check out the video below to learn how. Questions?
