A long time ago, on a social media site far, far away, there were no ads and minimal business presences. Facebook was meant for college students to connect with one another, not for Amazon to place retargeting ads to get you to buy the extra-large box of paper towels in bulk (amiright?). Yes, I fondly remember the good-ole days. But we must change and evolve, right? Stay relevant, reach wider audiences, and of course, convert traffic! How can all this be done? The answer is simple: Facebook Advertising. I’m going to show you just how powerful Facebook ads can be for your business by showing you what a page without Facebook ads will look like and it’s inevitable future, as well as a page thriving with Facebook ads.
Administrative Professionals Day is observed each year on Wednesday during the last full week of April. This year, that’s April 26th. There are a lot of ways to show the admins in your life how much you appreciate them: buying them flowers, bringing them their favorite coffee, or taking them out to lunch are great options. Another option is a heartfelt card letting them know how much you rely on their help.

In the early days of the internet, IP addresses—long strings of numbers separated by periods—were used to identify websites. As more and more people took to the internet, a simpler, easier method of finding a website was designed: domain names. When the first domain names were released around 1985, website owners could choose from .com, .net, and .org.
Since that time, those top-level domain extensions have remained popular, making it hard for new businesses to find great, unclaimed domain names. Luckily, recognizing the continually growing demand for domain names, new possibilities were (and continue to be) introduced. Businesses can now choose one of the original .com, .net, or .org domain extensions or one of the newer ones which include but aren’t limited to .site, .biz, .blog, .services, .ltd, .online, .town, and (perfect for the real estate industry) .homes.

In terms of originality and bringing something fresh to social media, Snapchat is the clear winner!
