The Value of a Google Rank

April 21st, 2011

I’ve been reading up on tips provided by, and the latest tip is quite timely for us.

“The Value of a Google Rank” discusses how being ranked high for a popular keyword or search term can be the difference between your business being a success or being lost on Page 4 with no clients in sight.

We recently added a valuable member to our team, Jessica Greenwalt. A 6 year professional entrepreneur who studied Graphic Design at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Jessica is proud to say that her website,, appears #1 for the search term “freelance graphic designer”. What does this mean for Jessica? She is overwhelmed with calls from all over the world, people interested in hiring her for graphic design and web development services. Needless to say, we are glad she is on our team!

Jessica will also be one of the panel speakers for our upcoming speaking engagement at Visual Media 2011 on the topic, “Is Print Dead?”
