Today, I was privy to a sneak peek at the new interface for InfusionSoft that is due to be released very soon (likely in August). From what I saw during the webinar, I am very impressed.
For starters, they’ve really ramped up the response time within the application so that screens refresh very quickly, and data is served much faster which will make the application much easier to use. They’ve also updated the color schemes, icons, and navigation to be much more intuitive which will also improve the overall experience with the application. Some terminology changes are coming in the next release, but they shouldn’t be anything to alarm anyone, and they all make logical sense so Infusion is obviously listening to the ICC community in addition to the user base to improve their product line.
I’m excited and look forward to utilizing the new application once it’s released. If you should have any InfusionSoft questions, I’d be more than happy to answer them. If I can’t answer the question myself, I’ll track down someone who can. Please feel free to e-mail me at roger.bauer [at] smbconsultinginc dot com.

The SEO Pricing Comparison Guide produced yesterday has already been updated as there has been quite a bit of demand for it already. The guide now reviews pricing for 50 of the top SEO firms across the globe and has pointers for selecting an SEO partner along with an explanation of the typical pricing models SEO firms utilize.
Hopefully it becomes a highly referred to resource. If I can answer any of your questions, please visit our contact page and shoot me an e-mail. I’d put my e-mail address on here, but spammers have been blowing me up. 😉 Or better yet, register to receive your copy of the guide and send me some feedback on it.

In follow up to the last post about the new Nike commercial with the guy in the wheelchair (Matt Scott), we thought we’d start a contest.
What is the lamest excuse you’ve heard for NOT doing something? It can be business or personal. Post your entry as a comment to this post, and check back frequently for updates. This isn’t a sophisticated contest with a bunch of rules, but there will definitely be a winner. 🙂
We’re giving away a 2 GB Silver iPod Nano (2nd Generation) to the most original excuse. We’ll let this run for a couple of weeks so everyone can submit their excuse then compile a list of “finalists” for everyone to vote for their favorite. The original poster will win the iPod. Easy enough?
Good luck winning the iPod!

Hey Everyone–just a quick update on things going on at this end. The radio contract is signed, sealed, and delivered so that will officially begin Thursday, October 4, 2007 at 2 PM ET (11 AM PT) on VoiceAmerica.com’s Business Channel. Eight guests have confirmed already for the show, and it should be a power packed marketing hour. In fact, the name we’ve been kicking around is: “The Bauer Pauer Hauer.” Let me know your thoughts on that especially if you have a better idea for a name although that one is kind of catchy.
I plan to add video to the mix rather shortly as I just purchased the first video camera for the firm last week and have been working on getting more comfortable in front of the lens. Needless to say the first few cracks at video leave a lot to be desired so I’m hopeful that when something gets published online, it’s at worst decent. I see tremendous value in online video and believe that is a prime way to differentiate one’s self from the competition, and that is the direction everything is headed. I can envision a day where the leading businesses have their own little production studio complete with a daily show. While that won’t happen tomorrow, it’s not as far off as it once was for certain.
Production is slated to get underway this week on the SEO Videos to accompany the SEO training manual (Cost Effective SEO: Better Attract Your Target Audience via Online Search). The videos will follow the general layout of the book but will give several examples for each exercise much like we do in the training seminars. It’s truly a hands-on endeavor so please take a peek at the samples once we prop them up online by the end of the month.
These are exciting times around the SMB complex, and I hope to return to article writing, press releases, and updating the blog a little more frequently once things calm just a bit. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to knock everything out at this point, but everything will settle in time.
Thanks for sticking with us through this time, and please feel free to share any feedback or suggestions you may have.
