|View this newsletter in your browser:
Hello OurChurch.Com webmasters,
Fall is upon us. Cool weather, changing leaves, and football. Though not so much here in Florida where it's 85 degrees, our leaves are green, and the Buccaneers have apparently decided not to play football this season.
Anyways, as I mentioned a few weeks ago in the month in the Business Month announcement, this is the time of year when businesses (and churches) gear up for the Christmas season and begin making plans for the next year. If those plans call for gearing up your website with a new design, more interaction, or better search rankings, we're here for you.
We've got some great stuff for you again in this month's newsletter - a discount on bundles, a very exciting search engine optimization service, and another coupon. And don't forget about the video... check out Pastor Andy Stanley in his first rap video.
In His Service,

2) NEW PROGRESSIVE SEO MANAGEMENT SERVICE
Two weeks ago we launched our Progressive SEO Management service, an aggressive search engine optimization (SEO) service designed to not only get your website ranking in the top 10 in the search engines now, but also build your site's strength so over time so you can compete for better, more popular keywords (search terms).
Most websites are not able to rank well for their best keywords when they first start search marketing. It takes a lot of time and effort and an aggressive search marketing strategy to build a website up in the search engines to the point that it can compete for the most popular keywords. The Progressive SEO Management service does just that. Find out more at:
