    Springtime... ...is just around the corner. With flowers in bloom and the grass turning to its beautiful shade of green, we are reminded that another season is arriving. Spring is the time when we open the windows and let the breeze blow through our homes or go out in the yard and do a little gardening. So when youre working outdoors tending to your flower beds or mowing your lawn, remember to wear safety goggles, gloves, a sun hat and sun block. Be sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids like water or other electrolyte-type beverages. Because you are starting lawn mowers and other lawn equipment for the first time after several months, be sure to use the necessary precautions. Remember to keep children and animals away from lawn equipment. Be aware that insects are also celebrating the new season, so be mindful that they may be lurking in the bushes and on the eves and

    Nothing is more detrimental to your business than losing money. But that is exactly what happens every time a potential customer chooses another company over yours. If your competitors information is more easily accessible to customers, the competitor gets the business. Because we now live in the digital age, technology is everywhere. As a business owner, embrace its power and use it to your advantage. Research proves the most successful, efficient and affordable advertisement tool available today is your companys website. Years ago, a potential customer would sift through yellow page after yellow page to find a business, company or service. Now, millions of people use search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN and Bing to find information every day. Your businesses can actually pay a search engine for the temporary use of key words that will link customers to your website. Those key words bring your website more visitors and ultimately more business. Constructing a website by yourself or, even worse, paying someone else to do it and your not receiving any positive returns for your efforts or money invested is counter-productive. However, there is a way to embrace the power of the internet, reach all your potential customers, waste less money, and not have to deal with the headache of figuring out this potentially confusing process. The solution: VIZADO.

    VIZADO has all the tools necessary to create an effective, efficient, and professional website for your business. Our team of Experts have the ability to design a website just for you with all the key components to bring your site to the top of the search engines. Already have a website?

    VIZADO offers Search Engine Optimization, which helps put your

    site among the first to appear when people search key words.

    For example, if a customer is looking for a lawyer in Baton Rouge and types Lawyer Baton Rouge into the Google search engine, almost a million websites can appear. That customer will usually

    not look past the first ten to fifteen websites on that page

    of listings. So he either settles for the most relevant lawyer listed,

    gives up, or actually finds the lawyer he needs. VIZADO knows what to do to

    help your company appear on that first page. You want your website to work for you. We at VIZADO want to ensure that your time and your money are not wasted. Take advantage of how the internet can help expand your business and increase your profits. Allow VIZADO to assist you in making your website one of your most powerful advertising tools.
