I’ve spent over two months out 'in the field', in Northern California and have learned so much about people’s perceptions of what is happening online. And I’ve found so many people don’t realise how fast the rate of change is happening, and how incredible Google has become as a way for businesses to improve their results.

And the biggest thing I learned is the importance of REVIEWS - so there will be loads of small business marketing tips around this area.

As such, I've been creating a load of quality content that will help small businesses thrive, including...
