Great Networking...in Arizona!

Okay, so you know me. When I really dislike something I will rave about it in a bad way, but when I really like something!!! I WILL TRUMPET ALL OVER ABOUT IT!!!!

Hold your ears! It's time to TRUMPET about Arizona Women Networking and Arizona Men Networking owned and run by Gia Heller. Two great networks that play off one another as well as apart from each other. They're great. Ladies, the Women network is a place you can meet like minded individuals who want to help you and your business take off. Men, the same goes for you on the Men side of the world. And when the two networks get together, they're unstoppable.

I love the groups, the members, and the mission and so today the DocMurdock APPROVED BIGTIME STAMP goes to:

Click the respective links above to check these out and sign up for updates as well as attend interviews to join up. They're selective of their membership.

Thanks for taking time to read this and have an amazing weekend.

Yahoo Search Marketing...Are you kidding me? Fwd: Case #236947578

Is Yahoo really this STUPID? or is it just me reading emails from them and loving their incompetence.

I received this message from Yahoo Search Marketing who I cancelled an account with a few years ago after their editorial process hung up ads for more than a week and cost us over $25,000 in lost revenue and I swore I'd never open an account with them again. Never will. Have no need to have ads hung up that long thank you very much.

But in the past couple of weeks they've seen fit to open an account for me in their search marketing area based on an email as simple as the one after their reply?

Carol Bartz, PLEASE FIRE YOURSELF before I walk into your next board meeting and have it done for you.

Yahoo deserves better leadership, leadership that's much more in tune with what that company could and should be and it's not kissing up Microsoft's backside either.

If anything it should forge an alliance with Apple, but that's for me and Steve Jobs to work out when you're gone and your board gets its balls back.

Hello Michael,

We received your email about reactivating the account and are glad to assist you.

As requested, your account is now active and the ads will now be displayed in our search results. This will only happen if your ad has achieved approved editorial status. We recommend that you check all your ads to make sure that they are set to the appropriate status. Check the account status first, then the campaign status, then the ad group status. If any of these is set to Off, the ad may not run even if its ad status is On.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of any further assistance.

Sincerely,

Dino McGuire
Customer Solutions
Yahoo! Search Marketing

Our 10-10-10 offerings

So I just wanted to drop a quick note out there to our followers and explain a little about them so you're more clear on why these are great for your business.

If you have only one website or blog for your business you're doing a dis-service to your exposure potential on the web. With self-hosted wordpress we can establish a great foundation for your exposure and we tie that together with a proven strategy which works to get you exposed in more places at one time.

It's fun for me to receive emails from people who say to me "I see you online all the time!". In fact did you know that I spend less than 30 minutes a day online posting to twitter and facebook each day? It's true. How? Well that's part of the strategy that we implement into our packages for your benefit. It works. Soon you'll be getting those emails and also getting called on by clients asking you how to get them out there more.

Let's walk through the packages that are on special today at www.docmurdock.com for 10-10-10:

A. self hosted wordpress with no shopping cart added. this is just a foundational package for someone who's just looking to have a presence on the web but does not desire to collect names through an auto-responder, or have a products page to work in conjunction with a shopping cart.

b. Advanced wordpress is the same as item A above except we'll integrate name capture through sign in which ties into an auto-responder and we'll also set up a products page for you, add in your products, and we're going to top all this off with an exposure strategy which will get your site out there on the search engines.

c. Is our famous SEO package which gets you a year out on in front of your market and visible on the search engines. We go through your site, find your correct keywords that work for your business and get them into your site in the right places so that you're a search engine attraction machine.

Sign up today before 10:10PM 10/10/10 and use 101010 as your COUPON CODE in our shopping cart and you'll save 50%! (make sure you click APPLY in the cart so that your coupon code works.

Go to www.docmurdock.com right now as we only have 10 of these available. After all, it's the 10th!

Hurry, there's not a lot of time left to enjoy this great offer.
