Digital Marketing Agency Delivering More Leads and Sales

Reading Time: 5 minutes

You often hear that the world of marketing is changing. It’s true, but we should all be looking at that statement a little differently.

The world of marketing has changed.

It’s not a matter of predicting where marketing is heading. We’re living it, right here, right now. Traditional marketing is failing to reach audiences like it used to. Even in its heyday traditional marketing wasn’t considered a precision approach. It was a numbers game, one that simply doesn’t work anymore. Newspapers and magazines are all but obsolete, and TV and radio are declining in a major way.

In its place rises digital marketing, or as we like to call it, “marketing.” Simply put, it’s the most effective way to market a business today, and for the foreseeable future.

I’ll reevaluate that statement as soon as one of these ever-popular end-of-days movies is made a reality. Until

Strong Insider Buying Could Indicate a Bottom in These 2 Stocks

Every investor knows that the path toward profits lies in buying low and selling high. That’s a basic precept of any economic trading system. The trick, however, is recognizing when the stock is low enough to buy in. The prime moment to buy is when the stock hits bottom; that will maximize returns when the share price starts to rise again. There are a multitude of possible clues investors can use to find the price bottom; today, we’ll be looking at insider buying trends. Insiders – the corporate officers, board members, and others ‘in the know’ – don’t just manage the companies, they know the details. Legally, they are not supposed to trade that knowledge, or to blatantly trade on it, and disclosure rules by government regulators help to keep the insiders honest. Their honest stock transactions, however,

Software and California Sales and Use Tax

Editor: Mark G. Cook, CPA, MBA

State
& Local Taxes

The taxability of software
for sales and use tax purposes has been a point of
persistent debate among states for several years. Many
states, including California, have applied sales tax
to software based on the form in which it is sold and
delivered to consumers. In general, the taxability of
software depends on its classification as either
“canned” (i.e., prewritten programs) or custom
software, as well as how the program is delivered
(e.g., on a CD or other tangible medium).

With
the downturn in the economy, states have been
attempting to revise their tax laws to broaden the
overall tax base subject to sales and use tax, thereby
increasing revenues to the state. Recently, California
courts decided two cases, Microsoft Corp. v.
Franchise Tax Board
, No. CGC-08-471260 (Cal.
Super. Ct. 2/17/11), and Nortel Networks, Inc. v.
State Board of
