* Small Business *

When small businesses make the decision to grow larger via the Internet, they enter a new playing field with its own set of unique challenges. Most small businesses fail in establishing themselves online, largely because they cannot overcome common marketing challenges that the digital landscape presents. Regardless of what marketing methods are employed, key ingredients for success require:

  1. Enabling potential customers to find the business through a Google search
  2. Connecting and creating engagement through social media platforms to spread brand awareness
  3. Reputation management to instill brand loyalty

For this reason, my team of researchers and I have developed guides that will help entrepreneurs and small businesses to improve their digital footprint. You can see the entire guide along with some of its features here:

Information on Lung Cancer:

Lung cancer can be caused by exposure to hazardous materials including asbestos, Agent Orange, and depleted uranium. Many veterans were exposed to these materials while in service and are at inceased risk for lung cancer. Lung cancer has a long latency period which means veterans might not show symptoms until decades after exposure to the hazards. To learn more about the causes of lung cancer, visit Lung Cancer Answers, http://www.lungcancer-prognosis.com/
