Backlink 2.jpg

When a website links to another website, it is called a backlink. They are made by simply placing a web address on your website.

Backlinks help increase visibility in search engines, improve the credibility of the site, and attract referral traffic.

The more backlinks a website has, the more popular it is, and the higher it will rank in search engine results pages.

When a website links to another website, it is effectively saying that it trusts and recommends that website. This can help to build trust with visitors and make them more likely to convert into customers or clients.

Referral traffic: When someone clicks on a backlink, they are taken to the linked website. If they like what they see, they may stay and browse the website, or even make a purchase. This can all help to increase the traffic and revenue of a website.

Overall, backlinks are important because they help increase visibility, improve credibility, and attract referral traffic. They are an essential part of any successful website.

ECommerce vs Brick and Mortar.png

The rise of e-commerce has been a death knell for small, independent retailers.

“Mom and pop” stores, as they’re sometimes called, have been struggling to compete with online giants like Amazon for years. And as more and more consumers turn to the internet for their shopping needs, these small businesses are being pushed to the brink.

There are a number of reasons why e-commerce is bad for small retail stores. First of all, online retailers have much lower overhead costs than brick-and-mortar businesses. They don’t have to pay for things like rent, utilities, and staff. This gives them a significant advantage when it comes to prices.

Second, small retail stores can’t compete directly with the convenience of online shopping. With just a few clicks, consumers can have whatever they want delivered right to their doorsteps. They don’t have to deal with the hassle of going into a store if they can avoid it.

Finally, online retailers have access to a much larger customer base than geographically limited retail stores. They can reach people all over the world...

For those who own retail scrub stores, selling scrubs online seems like a simple, logical, and reasonable next step.

The scrub store owner looks around their brick-and-mortar store and thinks: “I sell scrubs in this store, and if I put them online I can sell them there as well.”

There are two conflicting issues with that statement. The first is thinking that a scrub store’s business is to sell scrubs. The second is that selling online is similar to selling in a store

Let’s take the first misunderstanding first. A scrub store’s primary business is not selling scrubs to people. If that’s all a scrub store did, it would be much better and easier to shut the retail store down and sell them online only. What scrub stores do is provides services to healthcare professionals who wear scrubs.

Scrub stores aren’t product-oriented businesses. They are service and customer oriented. Online stores are 100% product-oriented because that is all they have to offer. Scrub stores provided services that are included in the cost of the product....
