This is hilarious! Toyota hired the right firm to put this viral video together. I’d love to find out who did this. This is a great example of a video that’s funny and a video that will be passed around on the Internet and go viral! I’ve already shared on facebook and with a few of my coworkers. Enjoy!


I’m on a writing spree! Two blog posts back to back. Hold on to your seats!!  🙂

I was looking for the Emarketed Facebook fan page to post the URL from the last blog I wrote and since to my knowledge there’s no easy way to find the fan page I had to do a search for “emarketed” in the search bar at the top while logged on in Facebook and got the below results from Bing at the bottom of the page. You then have the option of viewing more web results from Bing which I did and found some interesting results where we were coming up… 500 pages to be exact which were links from sites we’ve designed over the years, different social media sites we’re on, and more! I went through about 100 of these and found some interesting links. Found a college site that used one of the sites we designed and listed us as a reference for the information.  Found us mentioned on several employee web pages listed as a reference, current and past employees. Also found one of our clients site that was copied and uploaded to a new domain. The site isn’t functioning properly but I’ll have to let our client know. Interesting stuff! I only made it through 100 results but might do some further digging to see where our name is being used.

I’ll have to do another blog post on monitoring your company name/brand soon!  We’re currently doing this through Google Alerts but we haven’t been notified of all the ones I just found so I’ll have to look for a more extensive service. One service we’re testing out now is called Trackur. I recently met the founder, Andy Beal, of Trackur at the most recent SES in Chicago and he upgraded my account to a higher level so I can test it out. Thanks Andy! I’m sure his program Trackur will be tracking this blog post. Lets put his program to a test and see if he reads this blog post. (Andy, Please add a comment if you happen to find this blog post – i’m putting your program to the test since I’m sure you’re tracking your name and/or your company name! – Thanks, Matt) I need to get on this and start tracking our name more extensively! I’ll post a review of Trackur after we’ve used it for a month or so.online reputation monitoring

Wow! Just saw GoDaddy deal for $15 per month for unlimited space, unlimited bandwidth, and unlimited domains. You could host hundreds of sites for $15 a month. I’ve seen some pretty good deals out there but this takes the cake. Oh wait, Host Gator is also one I’ve used and they have a similar plan for $8. I’ve been very happy with Host Gator, from reliability to support they’ve been great! Their plan comes with your own toll free number which includes 100 free minutes! Both the GoDaddy and Host Gator plan comes with a free SSL cert in case you need to have a certificate for ecommerce or other secure transactions. For a control panel I’d recommend cpanel which Host Gator provides. It’s much easier to use. The Go Daddy panel can be difficult and limited in what you can do. Both come loaded with plenty of software so you should be good to go. My favorite of course being WordPress, a great blogging platform! Both plans also come with a credit to Google Adwords in case you’d like to market your new site through pay per click advertising.  Host Gator seems to be a step ahead with this one as well by offering $50 while GoDaddy offers a $25 credit. GoDaddy makes up for this though with a $25 credit to facebook (sorry facebook! wordpress wouldn’t allow me for some reason to link to you). Host Gator offers a 45 day money back guarantee while GoDaddy does not, but both are cheap and you can go month to month. Drum roll please….. dndndndndnd And the winner for the affordable web hosting award goes to HOST GATOR!! Good job Host Gator!! They also provide green web hosting that are powered and cooled by wind power in the state of Texas!! They also have a fall special so signup before Nov 1st to receive 20% off your order.
