Google Review Reputation 101

If you have been alive and participating in society to any degree than your have heard of one of the biggest tech companies called Google. It started out as a search engine and has in recent years had it’s hand in most tech advances & products. Google is great in many ways, however when it comes to a specific task; the removal of reviews that violate their policy they are not so great. We have had a fake review posted on Google about our company and have followed all the necessary steps to get Google to step in and start the ball rolling on review or removal of the review with no luck from them so far. We have properly replied to the “person” who wrote the review and have even created a campaign through our own networks to flag it as inappropriate to Google. The campaign got great traction, with over 20 different people flagging it is inappropriate.

It has been 5 months since this “person” wrote this review and too many to count now attempts from our company to bring this bogus and hateful review to light to be hopefully removed. The “persons” profile picture is of a famous female film director and the profile only has one other review on a business who is in the same geographic area as us and the review is very similar to ours, so it is likely bogus as well.

It is great that Google has a comment posting policy, but what good is a policy if it is not followed or enforced? The fake review falls within Google’s Comment Posting Policy, which is below:

  • Don’t spam or post fake reviews intended to boost or lower ratings.
  • Don’t post or link to content that is sexually explicit or contains profanity.
  • Don’t post or link to content that is abusive or hateful or threatens or harasses others.
  • Don’t post or or link to any file that contains viruses, corrupted files, “Trojan Horses,” or any other contaminating or destructive features that may damage someone else’s computer.
  • Don’t post any material that violates the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others.
  • Don’t impersonate any person, or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity.
  • Don’t violate any other applicable law or regulation.
  • Don’t use comments as a forum for advertisement.

You might also like to follow these guidelines and tips:

  • Make your comments useful and informative.
  • Post clear, valuable, and honest information specific to the content which you are reviewing.
  • Try to include both positives and drawbacks.
  • Be nice to others; don’t attack others.
  • Keep it readable; don’t use excessive capitalization and punctuation.
  • Use good grammar and check your spelling.

Please note that we reserve the right to review and remove commentary that violates our policies.

Everything else about Google and Google reviews I think are great. However, this is the one flaw with the system. The program that is in-charge of monitoring the “flag as inappropriate” needs some work, as we are not the only ones that are noticing this error that is hurting good businesses reputation. I do understand that there are millions of businesses that use Google My Business and Google reviews, so there is a large volume. That is why the AI or program that is in charge of this function needs to be improved and fast.

Call Us If You Need Help Improving Your Google Reviews! 727-443-7300

I would also suggest allocating more man powers in that department as well to monitor this. Google reviews is one of the best review platforms out there. They make it mandatory to have an account before you can post any reviews. Unlike Yelp where anyone can anonymously post reviews and damage a company. Google My Business use to have a way that you could have a phone call with a support agent to help you with your account, but they do not offer this anymore. This creates a big disconnect with the users (Businesses) and the company Google. They should bring back this function and MAKE GOOGLE MY BUSINESS GREAT AGAIN!

Massive Category 5 Hurricane Irma 2017

If you were alive in 2017 then you heard of the notorious Hurricane Irma. It was one of the biggest, well-formed, feared & nastiest hurricanes that anyone has seen. It’s devastation was massive and is still affecting a large number of people in the Caribbean and all of Florida. It is a type of natural disaster that doesn’t just affect you for one or two days as it passes over. It was a super hurricane so big that it affects some people for the rest of their lives.

I have lived in Pinellas County, FL since 2001 and this was the biggest & baddest storm that I have personally been through. At my residence I was lucky to have no structural damage but there were 3 large trees that were completely destroyed in my backyard. My father’s house had a very old and very large oak tree uprooted, which fell on his garage, where it caused some roof damage. For the Pinellas county area there was not that much rain, as was expected, but there were strong 90 to 120 MPH winds that did most of the worst damage to our area.

However, there is a hidden story of economic stress that has happened in our area that you are not likely to find being covered by your local news channel, and that is people in the areas hit by Hurricane Irma are not spending like they use to. As we are a marketing agency we have many clients all over the United States and many local companies we work with in our community. What we have seen almost 1 for 1 with our local companies are that they website traffic, leads, advertising impressions are lower than normal  and have been having a long lag on the recover and pick up to the normal range.

From an outside view this seems very logical but to be experiencing it firsthand it is somewhat nerve racking and surreal. It has been about 3 months since the landfall of Hurricane Irma and the marketing statistics are starting to pick up again. Most people are going to the doctor, going to the dentist, eating out and generally getting back into their normal routines.

Are You Experiencing This Slump – We Can Help!

The positive side of this that I have seen is the ability of the community to come together and support one another. I have witnessed my neighbors, businesses, government and local churches really going above and beyond to help people in the community that need help. This just goes to show that when a community, any community come together and work with each other they can really accomplish amazing things.

Apple iPhone 7 vs Samsung Galaxy S7

If you have been keeping up with phone technology recently then I am sure you have been aware of the battle that has been going on between debatably the two biggest tech giants in the world, Apple & Samsung. Both companies sell their products worldwide and have a very wide array of technology and electronic products. The one niche I want to talk about here is their cell phones. Whether you are a Samsung lover or a die hard Apple user there is on thing we have in common, and that is we want the best, fastest, most durable and fully functioning phone possible. There is no doubt that both phones are phones that nobody predicted would exist 40 years ago. They are tiny super computers in our pockets.

If you look at the phones and the technical specifications for each phone they are very similar. The main difference in the phones are the release dates and marketing. The Samsung Galaxy next generation has a history of coming out faster from a generation to the next. Apple started coming out with the iPhone in 2007 and the Samsung Galaxy 1 didn’t come out until 2010. By the time Samsung got into the game with the Galaxy the iPhone was on it’s 4th generation! Since Galaxy has been on the scene they have consistently released a new galaxy generation every year. However, Apple in the last 3 generations has taken 2 years for each new generation.

first-generation-phone

In turn this has put the Samsung Galaxy phone ahead of the iPhone as far as the first in some new technology for phones. The Samsung Galaxy was the first to have water-resistance and now a device to use with your phone to capture 360 video!

In my opinion the fact that Apple got rid of the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 was a big game change / innovation. However was it a change that people actually needed or wanted? I think the real reason behind the headphone jack removal might have been more covert than that. It might have been implemented to get rid of competition from other merchant companies such as Paypal, quickbooks and square card reader.

Would you Buy the iPhone 7? Are you willing to lose the headphone jack?

apple-facebook-post

 

Regardless of the differences, everyone is going to have their preference with their phone. I think the real difference is in their marketing and advertising. Apple has very simple and cutting edge marketing. It’s quick, cool, simple and communicates. The Samsung marketing is clean and thinking in the future. Samsung is reinventing the way you use your phone and involving new devices and functions!

Also, from my experience with making many business apps that are published in the Apple and Google Play stores I will say that I like Android better. The main reason why Android is better from an app developer point of view is because it is cheaper and quicker to publish to Google Play for Android users. Apple has a higher developer fee and they are more strict on the type of apps and the content of apps they let into their store. Which is great for the end user.

Donald J Trump Marketing Genius

hope-obama-for-americaIt is 2016, and for America that means a new presidential election. This has been obvious to most people in America because the presidential nominees have been all over the news, and media outlets. Our country was founded upon the idea of “freedom and justice for all.” This is why it is so important for every American citizen that has the right to vote, to go out and vote for the best candidate. So before I go into the reasons why I have personally voted for Donald J. Trump I would like to give a little back story about my decision.

I am 25 years old and grew up in Southern California. I then moved to South Florida as a young teenager. I grew up in a relatively happy and positive environment with loving and caring parents that encouraged me to do what I wanted to do and guided me along the way to make sure I didn’t get into too much trouble. The political influence from my parents and most of my family has been democratic in nature, which I did agree with and still agree with most of their views. However, this 2016 election has made me take a different stance and view on politics.

In 2008 when I turned 18, I was very excited to vote. It felt important; it was my right as an American citizen and a Chickasaw Native American citizen. So in my first presidential election I registered as a democrat and voted for Barack Obama. I was inspired by his campaign’s marketing of “Hope & Change”. He was younger and charismatic and was very different from any politicians I had seen before. I was swept away, like most young Americans by all the beautiful promises he made. Four years went by, and he seemed to do some good. So I voted for him again, thinking “Well the past 4 years haven’t been bad, has it? I mean, a lot of good had happened in my life in these 4 years. I was out of high school, I dabbled in college courses, was hired at a great marketing company, my dad helped me buy a house and the government gave me a $8000 credit for it.” So I thought to myself, I’ll like to see what he can do in the next four years… So I voted for Obama for a second term, and he won. However in these last 4 years of my life I have become engaged and have had a beautiful baby boy, and have a different view of the world now.

I now look at the country’s overall condition and it just doesn’t appear to be as bright as it was 8 years ago. Is it me getting older and more cynical or is the state of our beautiful country overall getting worse? Then I started looking at the country’s numbers, and found some unsettling facts.

In 2008 we had a national debt of about $10 trillion

Today we have about $19 trillion!

usa-public-debt

That number alone is terrifying! Have you ever had credit card debt? Well what would happen if you doubled your credit card debit in eight years? What happens if in 25 years you more than 6x it!

That is what is happening in our country. Just since I have been born, we have gone from 3 trillion to 19 trillion. It doesn’t appear to be going down.

Let’s look at more numbers.

The real GDP of the USA

2008 – $14.58 trillion

2015 – $16.44 trillion

So we have produced more GDP in the last eight years which is great, but it is at an unbalanced ratio to the debt we have.

After looking at all this information I then looked into the democratic nominees – Bernie Sanders and Hilary Clinton. I was not pleased. Yes they do have some policies that I do agree with, but if you look at the overall theme it is moving towards working less, producing less and then being rewarded more. This just does not make sense to me. If you implement and put money into programs that increase minimum wage, giving mandatory vacation days off every year, free medicine, free college then the money for these programs has to come from the people. That means, more taxes, more government spending more national public debt.

Well I started looking at the Republican party and analyzing each candidate. One of my favorites was Rand Paul, but he was not popular enough to vote for. I then found myself agreeing with a large majority of Mr. Donald J. Trump’s views on our country. He has his time when he is rough but I think he is the best person to run the country. I am voting for him for the following reasons.

  • Successful businessman – Turned $1 million into $4 billion
  • Strong and Determined
  • Wants to decrease taxes
  • Wants immigration to be done legally, by the law. Clear cut.
  • Wants to destroy ISIS
  • Wants workable and affordable healthcare
  • Friendly and Funny
  • Already employees 10,000+ Americans
  • Gets shit done
  • Will protect our right to bear arms
  • Business Entrepreneur
  • Etc, etc, etc…

I feel a lot of people do not like Mr. Trump because he has funny hair, he had a television show, or because his foreign wife is more beautiful than there own or because he is a billionaire. You can dislike anyone for anything. You need to look at their record, their character and see who would be best to run this country in the state that it is currently in, which is not a great one.

Also, Donald J. Trump’s marketing is on point. Just one example of his campaign’s marketing genius is below.  The domain is no longer forwarding, to Mr. Trump’s site but it used to when Jeb Bush was still in the presidential running!

donald j trump marketing

Now Chris Christi has even endorsed him, and even 25 years ago in an interview Donald J. Trump talked politics.

Marketing Clearwater Beach As #1 in The US

Recently TripAdvisor released their 10 top US beaches and best beaches in the World. It was no surprise that in the top were Florida and Hawaii beaches. However, the biggest surprise was that our company hometown of Clearwater was at the very top of the US list. Clearwater Beach is currently undergoing a lot of new construction as it is nearing completion this year and next year with two brand new resort towers. It wasn’t long ago that the beach traffic would be backed up because of the old draw bridge. There is no doubt that the city is happy about this award and honor.

clearwater-beach-marketing-number-1-2016

 

This will help tremendously with our local city economy from this type of award. Clearwater Beach has now won the battle for tourism dollars with this marketing advantage.

Do you think Clearwater Beach is the Best in the US? We Do!

See the video of Clearwater Beach being awarded the #1 US best beach (as seen on Today)

It will be interesting to see the positive effects that this award brings to not only Clearwater Beach, but also to downtown and the rest of Clearwater businesses. Recently, Clearwater government was already posting advertisements on different social media outlets such as Facebook for hiring more lifeguard staff for United States #1 Beach 2016.

Verizon & AOL – Happily Ever After – The $4.4 Billion Close

It is done! It was finalized today that Verizon has bought AOL for $4.4 billion. A deal that some thought would be repealed by FCC but has not yet…

Watch An Interview with CEO of AOL Tim Armstrong & Marni M. Walden President of product and new business innovation for Verizon

As many Americans remember AOL as the pioneer and leading company in bringing the internet to American households in the 90’s. AOL was also one of the first when it came to email addresses and for instant messaging on AIM (American Instant Messenger). It felt like just yesterday our house would receive 20 hours of free dial-up internet once a month in the mail…

aol-images

However, since the 90’s AOL has grown to be much more than just one of the first to offer internet in America. They have grown to be one of the largest online media networks. They own Huffington Post the worlds largest blog and advertising.com which is one of the largest online networks for advertisers. The fact that Verizon has bought AOL is a good move for both companies. Verizon is the largest wireless carrier and has the greatest reliability in the USA.

verizon-fios

So with the acquisition of AOL they will now have access to the a good chunk of the virtual communications of America as well. I am biased on this business deal because I have been a loyal Verzion customer for my internet and TV service with their Fios for about 5 years now. The acquisition of the two companies will also be great for AOL because it will give the company a large network that will take Verizon to a whole new level as far as advertising and mobile video.

Verizon – Keeping All Americans Connected With All Their Devices!

The overall benefit I see in this acquisition is the fact that the advertising network will be larger and stronger than ever. This is good for all businesses, not just marketing and advertising businesses. Small and medium size businesses all around the US will be able to better reach their target market without throwing darts and wasting a lot of money like in the past. I am sure that the pinpointing of the target market will get better and the services that Verizon provides will keep improving. Google watch out…

Fast and Furious 7 – Skydiving Cars & Skyscraper Car Jumping


This weekend I went to the movies and jumped on a wild ride which was Fast and Furious 7. I went into the movie thinking that it was just going to be another Fast and Furious movie. Which would include fighting, half-naked girls, very expensive cars, very fast cars and outlandish and seemly impossible stunts and scenes. The new movie did have all of these things, and a LOT of action. The main thing I found interesting is the fact that the movie was very well made and it kept the audience constantly on the edge of their seats. The film also did a great job of intertwining all of the other Fast and Furious movies into this last flick to make all the previous movies have more relevance to the whole series.

$1.516 BILLION At The Box Office!

The Fast and Furious 7 Marketing Success

The Fast and Furious 7 also proved that even a 7th version of a movie series can be extremely successful. Worldwide the movie has totaled over $400 million in just 5 days of opening. The popularity of this movie is BIG. As an example the Countryside, Florida Cobb Theaters has 12 screens and the Fast and Furious 7 was showing on 4 of them. Even with the movie being showed on 4 screens the movies were sold out on all of them a few hours before the shows started. It is safe to say that the marketing and advertising budget was spot on with this film.

At the end of the Fast and Furious 7 they created a nice exit for Paul Walker’s character, and had a nice collage of clips from all the movies that highlighted Paul’s character in the movies and had Vin Diesel give some final nice words to him. Paul Walker died in a car crash during the filming of the movie. The director was able to finish the actor’s scenes using his two brothers as actors and using CGI to make them look exactly like Paul Walker.

All and all the movie was a great action packed film that kept you engaged throughout the whole movie. I give the Fast and Furious 7, 4 out of 5 stars.

RIP Paul Walker

Palcohol – Pour, stir, or shake and get a Buzz

Science and technology work together to form the newest way to get a buzz or get drunk. Palcohol is a new invention that allows you to buy a pack of powdered alcohol. The product will have multiple favors and you will just need to simply add the powder to your water – mix, stir or shake and POFF! You have a delicious mixed drink. Each packet is about the same potency of one regular mixed drink. The creator is marketing it as a convenient way for people on the go such as hikers or campers that have a drink at night without having to carry bottles that would weigh them down.

palcohol products

Palcohol just received the US FDA blessing and can now be sold in the United States. However a few states are starting to create laws and legislation that would ban the sell of Palcohol in their state. Palcohol will start being shipping and distributed summer 2015. It will be very interesting to see the effect that powered alcohol will have on the overall alcohol market. I think that it is just a gimmick that really only appeals to teenagers and campers. I think Palcohol will come in and be gone or outlawed in most states within 5 years. It will be a fad. Much like parachute pants. It will be controversial in some groups and communities but in the end it will fizzle.

A similar innovation that comes to mind when I think of Palcohol is electronic cigarettes. However e-cigarettes had a great marketing and advertising advantage in the fact that it is a “safer” alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes and cigars and can be a great tool for people wanting to quit smoking and kick the habit to try e-cigs. E-cigarettes is how I finally quit smoking. The marketing of Palcohol seems to be falling short and I do not believe it will live up to the hopes of distribution and revenue that the creator, Mark Phillips sees for it. However, I think it is a very clever innovation. If it was up to me and I wanted to have a drink or two at home or on the go and I had the choice of traditional beer, wine, malt beverage or Palcohol at 7/11 – I would choice the traditional bottled alcohol.

Iggy Azalea quits twitter because she is too fancy

On February 18th at 11:27pm Iggy Azalea tweeted to all her followers a long string of reasons why she is leaving twitter and handing it over to her management team. Iggy has a track with a few incidents online involving other celebrities such Snoop Dogg or Snopp Lion and Eminem. Iggy Azalea’s last tweet was on February 18th at 11:37 pm which stated, “The Internet is the ugliest reflection of man kind there is.”

Iggy tweeted multiple times from 11:20 PM to 11:37 PM with some reasons for why she is leaving twitter behind her.

“Just got back from a great vacation, came online and saw apparently it’s shocking and unheard of to be a woman and have cellulite. Lol. I just want to have peace and relaxation time without a perve with long distance lense hiding out taking pictures, everyone deserves peace. I feel the hatred and pettiness i see online at all times is at making me become an angry person and I cannot be that. To become nasty because of the way I feel iam treated would be a disservice to my fans and I promise i will try to keep smiling. But I also want to let my fans know iam taking some time away from social media. I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining. My management will tweet/run my accounts from today onwards with updates etc unless any message is signed -IA. Love you all. Peace out! The Internet is the ugliest reflection of man kind there is.”

Was it right for Iggy Azalea to let paparazzi and the media get to her and make her turn away from social media? If you where in her red bottoms (Louis Vuitton heels) would you do the same thing to get some peace and quiet?

 

If it was me I wouldn’t have quit. I would keep fighting and sticking up for myself and I do believe the internet is a great tool. However because most of the world has access to it, you can find a lot of false information and nasty opinions and comments about people. Not to mention the fact that social media is a great tool for a celebrity to use as a marketing tool. It gives a famous artist, such as Iggy Azalea a direct feed to keep all her fans up to date on what she is doing and helps advertise and sell her albums, concerts and other promotions she is involved with. It is good that at least her management will still be updating it, but it is always more genuine and personal when the artist handles their social media themselves. Also, the fact that she has announced her leaving social media behind her has given her more attention as people such as myself are now writing about it and now her name is trending with Google 🙂
