Rick Johnson of WJOL | Web Video Realty

Rick Johnson of Web Realty shared some good information today on the benefits of digital targeted advertising. As a marketing guru and Account Executive at the local radio station, WJOL, Rick Johnson has extensive knowledge on how to drive traffic and customers to your business. Mr. Johnson explained how radio is a very important means of marketing that shouldn’t be overlooked. This creates a huge opportunity for local businesses to have a traditional and ever growing way to promote their business. Mr. Johnson explained how radio is something that is easily consumed in the car and that many people still tune into radio than one would think.

“What do people do while they are in the car?”

“How often are people in the car?”

These rhetorical questions asked by Mr. Johnson really helped to set the tone on how important radio is to anyone’s budget. Rick Johnson also explained new targeted digital advertising which was just amazing. This new service allows you to follow your customers with geo-fencing technology. This technology allows you to target an ad at specific customers when they enter specific geographical areas. Targeted digital advertising also allows you to utilize information collected about your potential clients, so that you can target them at the right time in the right place. Like on a specific website, or app, at a specific time, on a specific date. While the service seems very invasive, it is highly effective and allows you to make significant income while also being a better option than some PPC services.

Mr. Johnson is also into commercial and residential real-estate in the Shorewood Plainfield area. His realestate business can be reached at:

Casanova is currently discussing SEO and social media signaling with Mr. Johnson’s company. We highly Recommend that you reach out to Mr. Johonson!

Jodi Knows Homes visits Casanova | SEO | Web Design 

Jodi Heifner-Divierto of “Jodi Knows Homes” visited Casanova last week. We had an extensive conversation about realestate, SEO, and web design. We even discussed some new technological developments in the Augmented Reality space and how that will affect the realestate market. 

Check out Jodi’s website at: http://www.jodiknowshomes.com
Augmented reality provides many visual aids and supplemental information for realtors to provide to potential buyers. Imagine holding your phone up to a beautiful cabinet in a home and getting a video or other information on the cabinet. Or even holding your phone up to a yard sign and watching a 360 video and tour of the inside of the home!

We also discussed SEO and how important it is to the real estate market. Contracting a seo marketing company provides any business owner, especially a realesate agent, the ability to get their information in front of their customers online. 

It appears to be a seller’s market in the Naperville-Plainfield-Oswego and Will county area. If you are looking to sell your home contact Jodi at her website:

The Knowledge Graph – SEO, your Website, and your Business

The knowledge graph was introduced by Google in 2012. It is a way for information that you are searching for to be presented more easily as opposed to looking a SERPs, or search engine results. The knowledge graph for businesses (which we at Casanova refer to the “business showcase”) is huge for representing your business interests online. If your business doesn’t appear in the knowledge graph, then you are seriously losing out. How do you get into the knowledge graph? The three major search engines, Google, Bing, and yahoo, each have their own knowledge graph (But they have different names) and methods for entering it. Google my business is the way to enter the knowledge graph for Google. Google my business allows you to enter business information and to get a google+ page for your business which does wonders for your SEO. Bing Places is the way to enter the knowledge graph for Bing. These tools are paramount to your businesses’ online presence and should not be overlooked by any business.

The knowledge graph is aimed at semantic search with three main goals: answer, converse, and anticipate. The Knowledge graph seeks to become a robot that humans can talk to get information and to learn. Where do you stand with understanding the knowledge graph and how it relates to your business?

Phone Repair Joliet

Phone ☎ repair in Joliet, Il is a necessary service. #casanova provides this service to Joliet residents. There are many places to go to get your phone repaired as the phone repair industry develops. Many get their phones repaired by work from home enthusiasts, phone stores, and even sites like battery plus, who have added the service.

Your phone is a computer and probably the most important electronic device in your life. When your phone’s screen is cracked, little particles of glass get embedded in your fingers which can be a health risk, especially for children. 

It’s also important to get your phone repaired given that your phone is a dangerous object. There are dangerous toxics in your phone and it is electronic and combustible. Having a working phone is important to keeping you safe.
