The Purple Tie Radio Show Episode 76

SEO will be changed by how voice search and other such unknown search activities process the information. If only the relevant information is presented then other websites that aren’t in the #1 slot won’t even be presented as an option, thus eliminating any ad revenue that would have been generated.

We baked a LOT of sugar cookies this weekend. Some were purple. Some were blonde. All of them were delicious. And we’re going to use them to get a foot in the door with some of our potential clients. It’s a form of guerrilla marketing that is sure to make everyone in the office happy.

We nixed Indoor Marketing. Manpower is our limiting factor, but that wasn’t the only reason we decided against it.

Of course, we always work on the weekend. Because there’s never enough time during the work week.

Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away! People, stop jumping into Christmas so early! There’s a holiday in between, and it’s one you should always observe. Even if you live alone and away from your family.

Videogame DLC is engrained in the business model of most game companies. But customers have gotten savvy to the notion of paying for something that may or may not have already been created by the time the game was released. We also brought up micro-transactions, but I don’t want to rant in the show notes so we’ll just leave it at that.

Also, the Salvation Army National Commander is Willam A. Roberts, and he was compensated $131,243  in 2012.

The Purple Tie Radio Show Episode 75

We started using a stock photography site called Stock Unlimited. And we’d love it if you used our promo code! If you’re interested or in need of stock photos or vector graphics, head over to and let us introduce you to a wonderful site. Now, granted, this conversation was all over the place, and I can’t quite remember everything we talked about. But I’m almost positive that we swung back around to referral links and how it can help in your business.

I’m still not going to tell you what the next expansion of The Purple Tie is going to be. Needless to say, it’ll be awesome. Now, with that out of the way, knowing when to expand is a difficult thing to realize. We didn’t always know that we needed to expand in FavGeek. Usually, it only happened after a period of growing pains, when we were working at capacity then having that flow of work slow down. Those are some scary and trying times. But like the old saying goes, necessity is the mother of invention. You’ll know when the time is right for your company, just keep your eyes open.

And lastly, we talk about Prop 64 in California. That’s legal weed for everyone who hasn’t listened to the show yet. And we weave our way through bootleggers, alcohol taxation, cigarettes, and back around to legal weed and growing it in your basement. Now The Purple Tie doesn’t endorse drug use in any way. We do, however, endorse taxation of said drug. And if that means I can drive through downtown without worrying that my car is going to fall into a giant pothole (no pun intended), then that’s what I call a win-win.

Oh, and there’s one more thing about Siri, Cortana, Alexa and Google Home changing SEO forever ? but we’re all out of time. Tune in next week when we will hopefully talk about voice dictation taking over the world.

Side Note: The Alabama Beverage Control’s website is a labyrinth of misdirection and sorcery. I dare not look at it again lest I go insane. But feel free to go digging around for the information you’re looking for.

And yes, there’s a license for just about every part of agriculture.

The Purple Tie Radio Show Episode 74

Happy Halloween! We hope everyone has a safe and fun time trick-or-treating. Also, lots of candy.

The saga of the new car continues with a malfunctioning engine in the middle of a six-lane highway. We’ll keep you updated when new information arises.

This week, we wove common sense through many of our segments. Discussing things as straightforward as parking, we also talked about turning mistakes into learning experiences.

Something that bothers Robert to no end is someone coming up to him and saying, “I need to talk to you, but not right now.” He tends to think the worst (and has rarely been disappointed), but I’m at the opposite end of the spectrum. I simply shrug it off and continue my day. But at the end of the day, it’s simply rude to initiate a conversation then immediately terminate it just to start it again later. Manners!

At some point, we discussed the new Apple TV 4th Generation. It’s got lots of new fancies. Bluetooth, touch-sensitive remote. Actual apps. Robert loves watching videos on it. Very convenient username and password dictation. It’s worth the extra $10 to upgrade to the 64 Gb model.

We talked about being a little fish, meaning a small business with less than 10 employees. That doesn’t mean you’re a little fish. That is just a way of narrowing the field for larger companies when they’re taking on new clients. It’s an easy way to dismiss someone they don’t want to work with. And it’s not right. Small businesses make up the majority of the money generate in the US each year, not the other way around.

And finally, we talk about how PCs and Macs are no longer a commodity. In the early 2000’s and late 90s, computer prices dropped drastically, creating the cheap, $300 laptop that anyone could afford. But with the rise of mobile and tablet computing, personal computers and Macs will have to raise their prices to regain the lost revenue. Computers will NEVER sell as well as they did in the past two decades. The only way to make up that missing cash is to raise the price again.
