With the season of fall coming upon us, it's important to remember that trees don't care what time it is; they'll fall upon us with the changes in the air, and there are a variety of natural events to look forward to. Ranging from thunderstorms and our air conditioning units battling the heat of our malfunctioning furnace that now is in need of a repair person to swing by, actually requiring some dusting off, to the chaos of mild weather and the confusion of what to do in the yard when a big challenge comes face-to-face with us; over 40 feet tall, to be more direct. Our review this week goes to our friends over at Tree Care in Warren Mi.
The owner, a native of the city, is a combat veteran in our community and happy to be serving those around him. "Everyone who owns a home has a yard that needs to be maintained, and it feels better when it's done right -- with the exact same kind of care one of us would invest into our own grounds," he said in a recent interview at his home. "To be able to pick up the phone and get the opportunity to help my neighbor with something that they aren't readily equipped to tackle, I would like to imagine my neighbors would do the same for me if I were in a jam and could benefit from a friendly voice and a comforting, resounding willingness to drop everything come over."
He is so adamant about his goal to be available for his neighbors that the owner has hired a web designer whom he credits for the rapid and massive success of Tree Care in Warren Mi. In only a matter of weeks, the web site has reached near the top of Google rankings and began generating phone calls almost immediately! "I don't know where I would be if it weren't for my web consultant; he's probably the top reason I even have clients to serve," he said.
His search engine optimization (SEO) and lead generation expert-for-hire, Chris Young, told us in a public venue interview that he understands what people go through when they start a business, as well as the seasoned business owners in the marketplace.
"No one wants to be at the top of Google; period!!! No one cares where their information is placed. I can ask any business owner if they want their business cards stapled to page 1 of the Google rankings, and they react like it's another billboard in one of hundreds of hair salons in all of the Metropolitan Area."
He goes on to suggest that "...what business owners really want are the results that everyone talks about by being at the top of Google. That simply means improving their web presence to get their phone ringing and/or getting interested, serious buyers, who have a genuine need, knocking on the company's doors with money in-hand!"
Since leaving active-duty only recently, this honorably discharged United States Marine has been searching for those hungry business owners. "Give me a business owner who is in business to get more buyers, is hungry to expand their operation, and take on more clients, and I'll say that's the type of business owner that I want to shake hands with. "
When asked how he met his tree service client, his response was "...I was just in the right place at the right time. I sent him a video of a few tips on how he could make himself more competitive in the marketplace, and he called me back to say he didn't only want to compete... he wanted to dominate!" Thus, began a partnership for years to come as they work hand-in-hand to bring high-quality service at a competitive price to those in the Detroit, Metropolitan area.
The holidays tend to surround and consume the media, our cities, and everything in-between that we can see, hear, and/or be entertained by. From stores to online surplus outlets, we end up in a joyous circumstance of opportunities to buy what we can for our loved ones at significant discounts. These can range from the dolls and action figures for the children that adore their favorite movies and television shows, to the electronics for those that are pursuing an education in modern-day, to the delicious flavors of goods that hit the shelf and the restaurants as incentives to explore something more or new foods and beverages some have never laid eyes on before.
The image of the easter bunny brings a whole variety of rabbit-specific goods and services in the area. Theatrical entities open up and promote services for children and promotions by offering people whom dress up and deliver an image of the Easter Bunny for acting and pitching as the customer requests. While this is seasonal, there are similar companies that also hire and deliver child-like heroes from cartoons to be present for birthday parties and other events that could draw an audience; especially when someone can promote the event with the idea that such a character (a princess, for example) will be available to spend time with the audience, take pictures, participate in activities, etc. The market for this is incredible and very interesting to see flourish rapidly.
A similar fashion occurs when elves and representatives of Santa Claus come out of the woodwork to deliver opportunities to take pictures and listen to citizens share what they desire for Christmas after reporting whether their behavior all year has been acceptable and minimum to deserve receiving gifts. Notwithstanding the notion of whether such an activity is religiously affiliated, commercializing these times of the year has proven significantly profitable. Easter eggs as candy, mint in the shape of candy canes, and colors painting a variety of foods at grocery stores were growing commonplace more and more as years go by.
Godiva has been able to successfully expand on Valentine's Day with their opportunity to market more chocolate than most sources whom claim that their product is home-made or original in nature. Despite the possibility of running out of products to sell, food and beverage joints similar to the model of Godiva tend to either require an increase with their inventory, or increase the repetition of their delivery in the weeks and months surrounding holidays. The special deals advertised increase not only in repetition but quantity of notices given to the masses; and amazingly, the sales increase. Especially with the foundation of the internet, online sales have skyrocketed and ensure that shipping and receiving of goods promote the logistics-related companies, both federal-based and private, presence in-turn for delivering that which is ordered.
Clothing follows a similar pattern. With the popularity of ugly sweater events taking shop and the entertaining competitions that ensue at such events for whom wears the ugliest sweater at the party, and lingerie sales that skyrocket, major occasions tend to ensure that retailers and clothing lines are able to keep goods in-season.
Such a thought also accommodates the marketing departments of the major corporations. This paves the way to allow the larger entities, as well as the smaller mom-and-pop shops, to prepare their marketing plans and modify prices to cater to their audience. Additional considerations include prime positioning of select products on the floor design of their store(s) and ensure that the modified clothing (from past seasons) are positioned in the clearance section or re-advertised within the confines of a sale.
Indeed, the calendar year is filled with opportunities to advertise. With romance not necessarily being limited to a specific time frame, according to the habits of humanity and emotion, intimate apparel and delectable foods are sure to appeal to anyone when senses and the buzz of holidays and special occasions are heightened. You, too, can incorporate such practices in your business, but it is first, and most importantly, absolutely vital to know that there are strategies that your competitors are taking.
Ironically, when someone dominates on Google, it can take a little more than simply some slick strategy and prime placing of the season's best approaches to try and turn a profit. Simply put, countless business owners have been pitched by the promises that could come from being ranked on Google. However, most interviewed business owners are hungry about the products and results that come from being ranked on the top of Google -- like phone calls, and the bottom line increasing from additional prospective clients reaching out and asking for services. The additional, increased web presence is also a huge compliment for advertising as domination is the key to success when someone wants to climb to the top of the field in the fastest, most effective manner in this capitalistic society that Americans live in.

Like most members of the Detroit Metropolitan Area community, or communities -- for those whom have owned property in multiple cities -- the thriving times of the growing environment in and around Detroit brought a lot of business and community members to get involved in providing and purchasing services and / or products in the area. For the hardware store industry, competition was growing fierce well into the mid-2000s. This holds true for even the most fundamental staples of names in the region; more particularly, Damman Hardware.
In a desperate act to reserve lasting existence and correct once questioned leadership decisions in where to take the direction of the company, a selling of several stores to competitor -- ACE Hardware -- was a strategy that some may have perceived as a desperation for additional funds in which to recover and progress, regardless of the direction of the company. While there could be assumed that inconclusive evidence suggests the nature of the downfall, Damman Hardware ended up closing their doors more than approximately 10 years ago from this month (to-date).
There were questions raised early in the process of closing its doors, which especially started in their spotlight of high business profiling when a motion was filed under The Bankruptcy Court in Detroit (of The United States of America) in August of one of the years surrounding the fall of the agreement. Accusations regarding the agreements of the partnerships could have been included in case studies by college students and/or university professors as a reference for why partnerships tend to possess a tracking record with statistics incorporating rates of high failure. Alas, there was suggestion that the partnership wasn't entirely adhered to, with a lack of funds provided for additional merchandising and inventory purchasing credit, nor for the actual in-store assistance support which was expressly discussed.
Damman's selling of several stores to ACE Hardware was something that the ruling judge declared a higher delegation of authority and enforceability since the new transaction of high value also carried with it specific and deliberate terms as well.
Therefore, there might have been the concluded assumption that, while Damman Hardware may have refuted counter-allegations of the conflict, ACE Hardware evidently still accused Damman Hardware that the entity's agreements had not been lived up to and that such was sound logic and fair grounds by which to refuse providing agreed upon support for the remaining additional stores which were still owned by Damman Hardware itself.
After filing for bankruptcy in January of 2004, and reviving in July of that same year due to an agreement with their competitor, ACE Hardware, an Illinois-based and headquartered creditor for the Southfield, Michigan-based Damman Hardware, additional agreements were probably associated with nearly all agreements and orchestrated deals in order to accommodate and facilitate the attempted progress made on, and by, both parties, with what appears to have been for the sake of Damman Hardware keeping their doors open and ACE Hardware's notional ability to gain profit.
Yelp!, a platform by which other organizations can be listed, and hopefully, collect additional referrals for a hopeful increase in revenue -- be it short-term or long-term -- continues, to-date, to list no less than fourteen locations for Damman Hardware, in and around the Detroit Metro Area.
Upon initial inspection, one could assume that the company is still going strong, even though there are several years difference from the declared bankruptcy filing petition for disorganization and failure to adhere to disagreements.
Today, there are several options of large-chain hardware stores which provide similar products for cheaper prices than small companies, probably, ever could due to a variety of factors which might include, though are certainly not limited to, bulk shipment and bulk purchase discounts, corporate agreements, and much, much more.
There are many times that people will tend to reach for the number one roof repair company instead of the local mom and pop shop that can provide the exact same service. However, there are times when we just want to call someone and have a representative pick up on the other end of the line without having to circumvent an automated phone messaging system -- one of the biggest frustrations to date, according to a recent study.
Roof Repair Sterling Heights has been excited, since their inception, to bring good quality, down-to-earth service at competitive pricing to everyone who finds themselves in the misfortunate situation of needing to repair a roof, or simply to acquire some roofing services in or around the greater Metro-Detroit Area. Without question, there is surely someone on the other side to answer the phone. When business is good, there may be a wait time of simply leaving a message and enthusiastically looking forward to the phone call back with a real person on the other end of the line that is seriously interested in learning how they can solve whatever problem you may be facing with your roof.
In a recent interview with Roof Repair Sterling Heights, they proclaimed a sincere desire to make the most of their presence since they are now at the top of the food chain.
"We have partnered with the premiere SEO (stands for Search Engine Optimization) so that all the business in the area is coming to us. Since we're at the top, everyone calls us to confirm that we are the company that is willing to move forward in addressing all things roofing related.
"From a new roof to simply patching up portions of the roof, and from new shingles to simple modifications, we do it all and customize the job to ensure a perfect job every time!"
Since their inception only a short while ago under their new name, they have been the premiere roofing company in the region for quite some time. Some of the areas they have served include:
Naturally, they claim to receive criticism from a variety of sources for their stakes on being the one that members of the community know, like, trust, and go to with their concerns for all things related to roof repair. The truth of the matter is that, especially since the web site has gone up, excellent things have been happening.
In their most recent interview, we were able to sit down with their web site gentleman, Mr. Chris Young, to explore more of what he is doing to give Roof Repair Sterling Heights the edge on dominating the competition in the marketplace -- or, community members in need.
"It's really all about being the expert and the one who either knows the answers to the business owner's questions about an online presence, or being the one whom has the know how to go and find the answers," said Mr. Young, local marketing expert in and around the Detroit Metropolitan Area.
"The offer factor involves the confidence in taking a calculated risk and being willing to be patient, investing and confident long enough for the compound effect of online marketing efforts to take hold -- including a variety of other factors that we either don't have a solid grip on or cannot predict -- in order for one's web presence to be in a state where it can be suggested that a company is dominating the market."
His philosophy on marketing, or domination, is where he meets with the business owner and ensures that they not only believe in the power of the internet (especially for businesses of modern-day), but that they are willing to hire someone whom has generated multiples upon multiples of referrals for his current clients. He said, "It is actually kind of exciting and fun. I get to make a living while making a difference in the lives of both the business owners providing services and sharing products that their clients need, and also being the connecting sponsor between the customer and the service provider. It may sound cliché but I genuinely enjoy providing service that is both highly needed and highly appreciated."
His other clients, in various niches of the community, are equally happy. After receiving permission to contact another source which he provides leads for, they commented on the enormous business they are receiving. "We clear trees and tame the property in ways that our clients simply don't have the resources, time, or desire to do on their own. Chris Young has been the go-to expert for all things marketing-related and has kept our phones ringing to the point where we hardly leave the phone on the hook before it rings again -- and some days, we have gaps of time where so many requests for services are coming through the phones that it never gets hung up because of the amount of calls waiting, one after the other. It really is a truly exciting partnership working with Mr. Young."
Truly exciting indeed. In one month, he was able to generate over 227 new requests for one service provider alone, in his first month of operation.
"It's not really a difficult thing," said Chris, replying to our questions. "There are business owners out there whom greatly desire to grow their business and help more customers; they simply don't have the time, patience, desire, or ability to go and hire a couple of multi-millionaires to educate them on the intricacies of the internet and what it takes to help their business get found at the top of the listings that prospective clients are searching for. I'm a small firm, and that means personalized, meaningful service for all of the business owners that are eager to grow and expand into truly wealthy positions with their very own company."
As some companies these days are right sizing, down-sizing, or even capsizing, partnerships like Mr. Chris Young and Roof Repair Sterling Heights are thriving mutually and seems to be one that will continue for years to come.

It is estimated that, every single day, parents may seek to invest what little time they have available in this already overwhelmingly fast-paced society toward quality time with their babies and children. Unfortunately, the simple act of cleaning living space consumes precious and valuable time that most home owners would wish they could spend elsewhere. This is the very need being addressed by Mrs. Alberta Davis, Owner of Kingdom Clean LLC.
Mothers and fathers have enough on their plate; and while we all want the best for our children, many have found themselves stuck between getting everything done and having to be selective with their time amidst the revolving priorities of life; sometimes, simple, standard home cleaning efforts (unfortunately) fall to the way-side and, regrettably, this can slowly become a recurring theme in the lives of our family, friends, and neighbors nationwide.
In a recent interview, Mrs. Davis touched on the idea that there are a lot of American citizens whom simply need more time in their life... as well as a clean home. When busy with work, school, traveling with and for the kids, it's difficult to fit in all of your daily time commitments. Kingdom Clean LLC is here to serve the masses and allow families to take back their freedom by providing our clients with the personal touch of home cleaning services. They enrich the lives of their customers so that they and their families can enjoy a more fulfilling life.

Your home is your palace, and Kingdom Clean is happy to provide home cleaning in Auburn Hills and surrounding areas; making home cleaning services no longer a thing of the past, more homeowners and renters in the Greater Metro-Detroit Area are turning to the top service provider in the area: Kingdom Clean LLC.
The idea first reaching the family lineage as far back as 1935 in South Carolina, the late Hilda Robinson labored diligently in the art and skill of effective, efficient, and progressive home cleaning practices prior to moving to Detroit. By the age of 16, her skills had served her well as she provided higher quality attention to detailing every living space her clients could request. (For more on the astounding founding on Kingdom Clean LLC, visit their web site directly).
Years later, having blessed her surviving generations with the wisdom and skills of providing meaningful service, Mrs. Davis is happy to have formalized the practice into an American's dream-in-the-making; a business that will grow and develop to fulfill the dream which began generations ago: enrich the lives of Americans, one cleaning task at a time.

The Grow Detroit Youth Talent had a simple goal, yet a lofty one, to hire more than 8,000 young teens for the city workforce. The program, which has been in place over the last few years is continually upping the ante on the number of jobs provided to today’s youth in the area, beginning with a little over 5,000 and now adding a few thousand more to that total, making this one of the most successful youth marketed programs in the city, and one that probably benefits them the most.
The GDYT program is all about bringing our local area youth, aged 14-24, the necessary work experience, and networking capabilities that come with a summer work program. Those who know the toils that come with trying to find a job today is that experience, or lack thereof, can be the number one barrier of entry to most individuals, and aim to bring a change to that measure when it comes to our future workforce. Giving local area teens the ability to step up and start working on their own, teaches them a wide variety of skills and benefits that will help them in the long term.
With Detroit’s aching economy since the recession, it’s good not only to see there being a focus on bringing back valuable labor workforces to our city, but also trying to make the change for the future that will keep jobs in the area. With a strong market in the city, there is a better chance at long term living and thereby bringing up our local economy one step at a time. Those who participated in the first summer job program are already of the age to enter the workforce of today with valuable experience alongside them.
There are over 500 different job sites planned to host these local area youths,making just under to just around minimum wage for the next 6 weeks, and it’s through a series of local area donors and grants from the city itself that allows for these hires to take place without impacting our current job market. Whether the position they get placed in is training, or just on the job experience, it is something more valuable than a standard summer program, and one that aims to bring more back to the city in the long run.
Whether you have children in the program or ones looking forward to next year’s installment, with the roaring success that it has shown, it looks like one that will be staying around for some time to come. This is great news not only for our growing children, bringing them valuable contacts and experience, but also for the city itself, because a city that invests in its youth gets much more in return. With our ambition to move forward we need more programs like this, to come together as a community, and lift ourselves out of the quagmire and back to our place as an industry leader.
