Years ago I walked past a little music shop on my way to campus each day. There was very little business inside but it was a warm haven on cold days. So I would stop and chat with the two owners.
Each day they would share their vision of being a premier shop of vintage acoustic musical instruments. Their passion was contagious but sales were meager. They often shared their concerns as small business owners and asked for advice. All I, a college student, could suggest was to cater to local garage bands by stocking electric guitars and drums.
I graduated and moved on forgetting about my friends at Elderly Instruments for many years. Most of us know this business as the world’s premier retailer of musical instruments. What changed?
Owner Stan Werbin was responsive to the sales potential of the Web early on. He learned HTML and created his own website. You can find his online store today at http://www.elderly.com. BTW, he stocks electric guitars too.;)
As Bob Dylan wrote, “The Times Are A-Changin”.
Today’s business paradigm is rapidly shifting to mobile marketing.
There are more mobile devices in the United States today than computers and people are shopping with them! PayPal knows this and is responding with Mobile Marketing webinars for their business accounts.
PayPal also knows today’s websites need to be more responsive than ever. Sites and apps need to be designed specially for the unique characteristics of smartphones and tablets.
Fortunately help is available. The trick is finding someone who can optimize websites and apps for mobile users.
The Mobile Learning Studio specializes in creating optimized websites and apps for mobile devices. And while you can access these on any computer they come to life on a smartphone or tablet. We can help you get your message out to customers on the go and increase sales. Being listed in one of our business directories of mobile apps will help promote your business too!

All across the United States, real estate values have dropped dramatically. Many properties have not been accurately assessed for property tax purposes. Issues with property taxes lie with whether the property is really worth what the assessor says it is. This is especially important for industrial and commercial taxpayers with multiple business locations. Many property owners are overpaying on property taxes, as there may be a substantial gap between the assessed value and the actual value of the property.
The property tax appeals process may vary by location. Property owners in Sioux City are currently receiving notice of assessments. If the property has not been reassessed, the same value is used for 2013 as was assessed in 2012. The deadline to file a protest of the 2013 assessment is quickly approaching. The deadline is May 5th. Attorneys at Goosmann Law Firm, PLC understand the tax appeal process.
