B. C. X. wide too you know T. R. W. dash this just to get their name and I think you just forget it you know a six something could be let al fix it it could be like poached scrubber it could be like the hormone pros it doesn't have to be the name of your business doesn't and nobody looks in the search bar to see that it's like this okay I love Pat is yeah I love what they're doing with their brand but I just put real CBT that works dot com okay don't you think there's something to be said about that why is it that business owners feel their name has to be on their website and if you have a web address that's beds searched by its name like if the guy that I see B. D. dot com it's got a lot of heads thank you type in his name and write it just like the Denver Palmer or anything so you want to have what you do in the U. R. L. that's right and you want to dot com and they're hard to come by right that's why people would just make it up you know if you if you have a it's all right to have more than one you are all too so if panacea life sciences they're great people or panacea alive the both of those work if they want to have that because that's their corporate eight habit but there's nothing wrong with having a trade you are out I call it a trade you are I'll get you know this this if it doesn't have to be the name of the business it is always better if it can be but not it's not only to our basements irrigation grew tells me nothing about what he does right so that you can have to Europe you are else it redirects you still have one web so I called the re direct very simple to do right so anyway what we your entire website how does it show up in SCO how to shop when you Google dot at that kind of stuff well on this one unfortunately he's not showing up for his for anything other than his name so it has a shop at all this is one of those cases on that unfortunately if you came to us we'd say we need to start with a new website yeah you start over and and also if you can give it another name it would be good too but yeah I Adam you probably didn't come on here to hear this how is your business though doing I'm I'm I'm assuming that how is the business doing great but it's all word of mouth right no we weren't going to move and you know we're not very computer savvy and so that was on our list this year to get our website be done you know what I always feel some of the best businesses are and back and most ethical in most forthright they're the guys that aren't represented well because they're so happy they're so focused on their business you know what I mean they don't and then they haven't found anyone they can trust I can't get irrigation grew to come up at all it's pretty visible and again it's so important so my neighbor uses your recommended to me I'm still going to look it up I want to see reviews I want to look at the website look at a gallery of photos so having a good website if nothing else is going to help convert those refer only so you know Adam if you know if you want to go see these guys are talk to people very remember this okay you need it if not every single question is not answered don't use people this stuff about you know don't look here look here you know and don't look behind the curtain look here they have to be able to answer everything six wanted by farmers insurance we are farmers there's just a couple of minor slow spots in the highway.
