Here we are in the New Year! I’m sure a lot of people are asking where did 2008 go but as they say you can’t look back and so I won’t except to say it was a great year with several highlights.

  • We left 2008 with our health
  • We were able to bring new customers on board and keep our existing ones. For this I’m always grateful.
  • We launched our training series, Smart On SEO
  • We got a little publicity from Michael Ray at The33 TV – See the YouTube video below
  • So 2008 was great and 2009 looks to be even better especially for search. Several questions intrigue me, like, how much will mobile search grow? How will Google promote impact search engine rankings?

    I wish you all a wonderful and prosperous New Year!

    In 1997 my brother Andy and I formed The Info Group which has grown into a full service Digital Marketing & Web Design Agency based in Dallas, TX. In 1998 I kept my musical juices flowing and formed FruitCake-SuperBeing an electronically challenged blues hop band. In 2008 we launched Smart On SEO a business offering live SEO Training in Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. I have earned my Google Adwords Certification and Microsoft adExcellence Member status and hope to translate that into more business for The Info Group and become a Seminars for Success Trainer for Google Adwords and Analytics. This year also saw FruitCake-SuperBeing take an extended break, although late in the year I began working on a new musical project called Wedgie White. It's 2013 and The Info Group is still my "day job" but I've added photo booth to my skill set helping my wife run her business Photo Booth Rentals DFW. FruitCake-SuperBeing is back on the circuit and sounding better than ever.
