Business Trust Relationship
Relationships need to constantly be growing stronger and deeper every minute of every day. In this economy, this fact remains stressed every day in your profession. With layoff, unemployment at record lows, you need to build solid relationships with trust more now, than ever before. It’s a fact in sales and small business in general, that people want to work with people they know and most of all, those whom they know they can trust.
The capacity to build a trusting relationship is what every business needs and should make it a set requirement if the business goals are set to win and survive the long haul. Without trust – in something – or – someone – how is any ones business going to survive, or more-so, be expected to sustain in a downturn without trust?

It’s true that not everyone has been around “forever,” not even Google. In fact, it was only in 1998 that they were officially Incorporated.
Why do I mention that? Well, it has something to do with credibility of The Sales Corner.
Matt Geier was designing websites BEFORE Google was around. Matt designed his first website in 1995, and did about 10-15 of them that year using HTML 1.0. Later they evolved into better version of HTML and eventually started using CSS and other “code” to improve aesthetics, interoperability among browsers, and more!
When Google came out, some website owners became scared as to the unknown about “this new search engine” and others, like me, learned to thrive on that unknown with the promise of what was to come down the line. Those that didn’t understand how it worked, couldn’t utilize it and maximize their success as well, simply from lack of understanding and knowledge about it.
When Google first became “real” a lot of questions were asked about their search engine algorithms and how they looked at sites and more;
Nobody knew the secrets, and so you had website owners, and webmasters doing things like adding pop ups, or exchanging links, or sharing links on sites, and anything they could do to get Google algorithms to pick up on their sites with Google Robots and so forth. Some things people did know, came back to these types of tactics to get noticed. Unfortunately, hurting a lot of credibility from reputable sources in the process due to the “fast acting ways to get recognized” which were later recognized as ill-legitimate ways vs the good quality ways and over time Google adjusted this to some of the more current algorithms we see today.
Unfortunately, even today people try and fail to get the understanding of how Google searches work, and what they are really looking for in order to rank your page, or show you on a search.
We understand it; why? Because we’ve been “getting it” since day one finding out any information about how Google works! Searching and scouring the net; but did you know the best place is “from the source” Google, themselves? Yes, that’s right, you can follow them in all kinds of ways to understand what they tell you is the best way to get your website ranked, searched, and more!
Nowadays, Google has their hand in all kinds of things; and I want you to take advantage of Google’s great ability to show your website some really spectacular ranking results and traffic but in order to do that, here’s a list of things you’ll need to do every single day……..no, I’m not joking…. and If you cannot, then I simply suggest finding someone who can do this for you, because this is what it takes to generate results; Like The Sales Corner
1) Make sure you generate NEW content every single day, including Saturday’s and Sunday’s; This should be between 3-10 Articles or Blog posts a day that are original from each other. Each Article or Blog should be different in context or if the content is the same, change it so that the same content is read or appears different, and now it’s NEW or SIMILAR, but NOT THE SAME.
2) You need to advertise and market your content and drive it to the people, all of it, every day. The more your active with your site, the better results you’ll get from page ranking tools, and people like Google always looking for “active and popular” websites and blogs! The more people AND GOOGLE see your site active, the higher it will rank in popularity!
3) Don’t bother just exchanging links anymore, or even submitting to link exchanges! Get EXTERNAL LINKS in place! The problem with adding your link to a exchange, is well, you’re with about 1000 other links too; who knows if they are the same type of products or services. Instead; establish good relationships and get your link permanently placed on your partner’s pages, or customer’s websites. The reason you want permanent placement is to help with your “popularity” and the popular you are, the higher you’ll rank. This is only measured in part by how many external links you have; none-the-less, get some, it will help!
4) Stop making exact copies of your pages and putting them on different domain names. The only thing this is doing, is giving you three individual domains, with the same content on each one. That doesn’t provide any value. Google frowns immensely on this kind of behavior. Google algorithms look for “value add” and “unique” things that attract it’s attention. Having a site the same as the next, is like owning three cookie cutter houses in three different zip codes; You still have three houses, and the same amount of relatives at any given time in each one. Nothing new and valuable, just the same.
5) If you cannot do what needs to be done to manage and maintain your website presence, find someone, like The Sales Corner, who can help offset those tasks and become focused on generating results geared to help YOU directly! It’s imperative you take a focus on your business results and stop leaving sales and marketing driven items to your graphics designer, or sales to your engineering team! Work with people that give you the results you’re looking for; not the one’s they want to sell or offer in their proposal!

My son and I were praying before bed one evening when he was still a toddler. After he had finished being thankful for all his favorite things “A-a-a-men”, he clambered up onto the bed and pulled the sheet up to his chin.
When I leaned over his low slung twin bed with wooden railings to give him his goodnight kiss and tuck the loose ends of the sheet gently under the mattress, I stood and whispered, “My heart is filled with so much happiness for all the great choices you made today.”
I watched his reaction. His brown eyes squished to tiny slits as a smile expanded over his cheeks and before I turned away and walked out of the room, shutting the door slightly and turning off the light, he stopped me and asked, “Mom, your heart is filled with Happy Meals?” I had to catch my breath from laughing so hard.
These are the most precious moments in life. If you feel like you have not had one of life’s pleasures in awhile, it’s time. ~ Susan Yakima

Critical Success Factor (CSF) is the term for an element that is necessary for an organization or project to achieve its mission. It is a critical factor or activity required for ensuring the success of a company or an organization. The term was initially used in the world of data analysis, and business analysis. For example, a CSF for a successful Information Technology (IT) project is user involvement. “Critical success factors are those few things that must go well to ensure success for a manager or an organization, and, therefore, they represent those managerial or enterprise areas that must be given special and continual attention to bring about high performance. CSFs include issues vital to an organization’s current operating activities and to its future success.”
Visualize success and then create habits that make it happen.
We see it a lot here at The Sales Corner. Including the “decision makers” making the decision to put an exorbitant amount of money into a product or service to gain little to no attention from that service or provider. In this example below, we show you a common type of approach;
“Mr. Customer, you can pay $15,000 dollars to get you in the top 3 on Google in less then 6 months!” Doesn’t that sound great?! Oh, and by the way, can and will also offer you; Internet Marketing, SEO Services, additional Search Engine Placements, Revenue Ad ideas, ways to sell products, and other things that will appear to help your online growth…. and if you want to gain access to that stuff, you’ll need to pony up another $15,000 or more to take advantage of those things!” If you’d like can start right away as long as you can provide them a Credit Card, AND SURELY WILL GUARANTEE you top placement on Google for your money, and their hard work, and you’ll become famous! Doesn’t that sound great Mr. Customer?”
Ho Hum, but we here at The Sales Corner say “Sorry Mr Customer; You’ve just been screwed out of a nice chunk of change!” Change that you could have used to buy a new desk, computer, programs, or hell, maybe you wanted a vacation with your family while you left the business to someone else!!
Why are you screwed though? Here’s how, and we think you’ll find this a bit intriguing;
1) ANYONE can search Google for anything.
When they do, some of YOU will have success on the top pages and some will not. However, it’s true that the top 5 links mostly get the clicks, it’s not always true that just because you are in the top 5 you’ll stay there there based on what those optimized search terms were. No, you’re in the top 5 because Google put you there based on how they ranked your popularity. (among other criteria….)
(This information alone to the right service provider is worth about $10,000 dollars in their price book, and I’ve just provided it for
So how popular are you today?
Where do you fit in?
Is your provider KEEPING you in that top 5 with “good ethics” and “dynamic ways” to keep you in the top listings?
Frankly our “Kid and Pre-Teen Research Team” can do better then some of the “experts” out there. WHY? It’s because they are creatively changing and remain dynamic.
You’ll stay on top of the Google game if you are dynamic, changing, and doing doing doing something that Google likes. Do you know all the secrets? NO, and let us tell you, neither do we, nor does the next service provider.
What The Sales Corner does know is how to keep you in front of your customers in your market. We help you build on your relationships and open NEW doors!
The perks of some of these things are becoming “famous” on Google, or having “the source” be you when a potential party is looking for your solution, service, or similar product etc…
We hope you take the time to consider this the next time you are seeking a service provider with a very large amount of overhead needed to do a job that any smart 3rd or 4th grader can do. Please be different; be smarter then those people. HELP YOURSELF LEARN and GROW and ACHIEVE and perhaps best of all SAVE YOUR MONEY! (Or give it to us, to help your ROI…..)

My name is Francis Walsh and I want to tell you what my baseline is. My baseline is where you are right now. “Where are you anyways?” I know where you want to be, but right now you’re here. “Where is here?”
Generating relationships online can be summed up in three, easy, steps. They are create, create, and interact with said create, create. It’s easy, but it’s not easy for everyone. Stop what you’re doing, Drop down to the consumer level, and Roll out the information that benefits the company in a positive way.
The intent of internet marketing is to connect with new users who through their normal every day travel of the internet, find information about you. If you increase the amount of information about you by 30% then you have more information about you from which new users are able to find your news.
The intent of internet sales is to generate revenue through the interaction of a company user and a consumer interacting via their computers. Without an increase of content a company user could go out and increase sales by thirty percent through interactions with new consumers. The company user is creating new content and interacting at the same time. Driving sales into the company to generate a 30% increase in sales is different than increasing the amount of content by 30%.
I could take the 30% to the next level and say a goal of receiving 30% growth on investment would, in banker’s terms, mean a return of $4000 on a $3000 investment. Each baseline is a little different and in the end, has a different result.
Consider each baseline as you enter into a new partnership where a provider will be doing the work for you. The best rests come from proper planning and a mutual understanding of the baseline and the goal.
“A baseline is a line that is a base for measurement or for construction; What are you trying to construct for your Internet Marketing?”
My name is Francis Walsh. I spend most of my time right here, typing words that get noticed. I know this is true because people come and ask me what I’m writing about and why.
“I like to think they are more interested in my words but they’re not.” “They are interested in what I talk about.”
Content is King
“No doubt about it, content IS king.”
Right now, our friends and colleagues are talking and writing too. The problem is much of what they’re doing online has nothing to do with me or you. They are interacting on a personal level with their friends and colleagues who keep them motivated. Motivation is the key to happiness. Happiness is motivated through interaction on a personal level.
“People are online looking for the answer to their next big question and they know where to go for their answer, but they don’t yet know who the answer is going to come from.”
Even you have questions that need to be answered. They may change as your day goes along or as the need for an answer arises. What we all hope to have when questioning the things we need to know more about, is a rapid response.
“We like to get a quick response.” “Don’t you?”
Content is the answer. Or better yet, “Content about your product has the answers about your product.” Your business can quantify an actual benefit from having more answers about your product online. “Not just on YOUR blog or website, but anywhere there is a forum of similar minded individuals or subjects to leave an answer behind. This is the PERFECT place to introduce your position and the benefits of your product.”
“You have to spread yourself around if you want to really begin to see the benefit of marketing to the online community.”
Rapid Response Initiative
“I like to think that I can answer a question from anyone online before they actually sign off from that session of computer use.”
If you begin to initiate a rapid response to each and every request for an answer that comes in from anywhere online, you will dramatically increase your bottom line by “I would say 15% to start.” “And it doesn’t matter how big your company is right now!”
Small companies therefore have to consider that a 15% increase to their offline business from online activity would be a great boost, and big companies can see that taking back or acquiring more market share is possible. “Even companies that think they already have a presence online.”
“Some businesses don’t know what they’re doing really, and have no idea of the commitment it takes to drive business from the online marketplace.”
Being prepared to respond to that user before he or she signs off the internet is how you can expect these kinds of results.
Matt Geier has the platform to push a company forward quickly. Not just a man with a plan, but a team with a dream. “The dream is about building equity from internet sources using content placement and rapid response initiatives that not only boost productivity of what already exists online, but generates its own business away from the one location certified to be The Product Source.”
The investment is sound. The people are experienced and motivated. More businesses are getting results that they cannot get from anyone else. Other companies run around with a product’s old content, putting one thing everywhere. “One little thing” (and then they pray.)
“I expect everything I do to be successful and it is.” “I expect that every company that I work with will see tremendous growth, and they do.” “I can only say that I know what The Sales Corner will do, and it will be well worth it if you put your business on a fast track with us.”
“I can say more but then I think I said enough already.”
