Thanks for stopping by Eco Press. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Anabelle Taub. I own and operate a social media marketing and web design agency based out of Aventura (Miami), Florida. I am passionate about social media, search engine marketing, and the latest trends in social media networks. As such, I love to share my thoughts, and some useful marketing tips.
Today’s topic- online coupons. My opinion– I hate them! I hate what they’ve done to many local small businesses. In fact, I don’t advise any of my clients (nor will I take on a marketing campaign) to join any of these online coupon/discount sites. Instead, I advise my clients to offer sound promotions (where both the merchant and consumers walk away happy), offer VIP programs, give away a product with the purchase of a service, or give some kind of educational material which leads towards sales.
Coupons in the form of online offers should be avoided like the plague that they are! Unless of course you’re giving away something that is free that you never hope to sell for more than nothing! Some of you may be thinking that this is a bold statement, I am well aware of that. Here’s why I think you should not take part of online discount/coupon services- because this type of “deal of the day offers,” encourages fickle, lower-end clients, who are looking for a CHEAP one time deal. The statistics show that a large majority of people who take part of these type of deals NEVER return as repeat clients. Need more convincing? The low cost services in high volume wear out your staff, their morale, can can damage the perceived value of your brand.
I know of several businesses that literally had to close down their doors, because they committed to selling hundreds of deals, had to fill them, made no profit, and still had to pay their staff. [ I will be including some case studies in the next few weeks. Be sure to subscribe to my blog].
Instead you should drive potential customers through proven marketing methods. In order to attract new clients, you will have to implement social media marketing techniques. If you can afford it, you should have a professional, reputable marketing agency do this for you.
Your Turn: Have you had a negative experience with any of the online websites offering discounted offers? Would love to get any feedback, good or bad.
Thanks for stopping by Eco Press- a Miami based social media marketing and web design agency. I specialize in marketing specific to realtors. Now you may ask yourself, what would make me an expert in marketing realtors. Well, I too am a realtor. I am known at the pet-friendly realtor by many in my circle. I specialize in marketing dog-friendly buildings and communities in Miami, Miami Beach, Sunny Isles, Aventura, Hallandale and Hollywood Beach, Fl. Check out my website @ http://anabelletaub.com.
So, here’s my first marketing tip for all you realtors out there. It’s simple. It may even seem to be a very common sense kind of tip, but you’d be amazed at just how many realtors make this mistake- over and over again.
As I look through the MLS to find listings for my clients, I come across listing after listing that does not include images, or only one image. Do you know what happens next? I move on to the next listing. Having a listing on the MLS without photos, or just one photo, is a disservice to your clients and to yourself. It’s as good as having NO listing. Your for sale listing is probably missing quite a bit of showings, because you’ve failed to add a few photos. After all, most clients, like to view photos, prior to go to see the property.
So, if you’re new to the business, always include and upload images to your MLS system. I will be writing many more marketing tips for realtors in the near future.
Are you a realtor in South Florida? I am sure you’d like more business coming your way? Right! But, you may not know how to go about marketing yourself online, or where to start? Are you depending solely on craigslist.org ? The good news is that I know exactly what you need to increase your sales and rentals. I am not only the owner of Eco Press- social media marketing and web design agency (based out of Aventura, Fl), but I am also a pet-friendly realtor, specializing in dog-friendly real estate throughout Miami-Dade and South East Broward.
What this means is that not only do I have the knowledge of social media marketing and search engine marketing, but I am also extremely knowledgable in the South Florida market. I attend dozens of marketing conferences each year, in addition to training classes with my local Miami Realtor board, providing me with an arsenal of tools to market my clients who happen to be realtors.
Please subscribe to my blog, as I will be adding lots of marketing tips specific to realtors in the very near future.

Good day to all,
Copyright 2011. Eco Press: Online Defamation Defense Services. All rights reserved.
Eco Press, based out of Miami, Fl., provides online defamation repair, also known as reputation repair. If your business has been defamed online in Miami or anywhere in the US for that matter, I can help you. My name is Anabelle Taub. Not only am I the proud founder of Eco Press, but I am also a survivor of a brutal defamation campaign taken against me and my mother. The online reputation libel, as in many instances, was taken out against us by a disgruntled ex-family member. The first thing I can tell you, is that there’s hope. Luckily I had extensive experience in online marketing and search engine positioning, so I was able to repair the damage that had been caused. However, you should know, it is a grueling process. One that involves multiple visits to the court houses, state attorneys office/s, and most importantly, visits to local law enforcement and the FBI. My story is an interesting one, I will be more than happy to share it with you during a consultation for any online reputation repair services you may need. I am not embarrassed to share this with you on my site, on the contrary, I am eager to let you know about my story, and let you know that despite what your petulant antagonist might think- law enforcement does take it seriously.
If you’ve had complete and utter lies written about you online, if your business has suffered great losses due to online defamation, there’s hope! Here are some questions and answers I’ve compiled for you:
Frequently asked questions, answered:
While we do our best to answer questions, it is my policy not to answer or give a way too much information online. Due to the sensitive nature of most defamation of character cases, the last thing we’d like to do is give our petulant antagonists any more ideas or tools to further continue their digital crucifixion.
Is there a guarantee that any negative information indexed on search engines be permanently deleted ?
No! Again, no! It is beyond anyone’s control to permanently delete negative, wrong, libelous information written about you on the internet. However, Eco Press’ defamation defense blueprint was designed to push most if not all negative information indexed on search engines beyond the first page of major search engines such as Google, Yahoo! and Bing.
What kind of tactics are used to remove or push down ranking of negative, libelous information?
While most of our tactics used are confidential, again, to avoid giving petulant antagonists any more ideas, efforts will be made to contact webmasters and impress upon them that it would be in their best interest to remove libelous statements or sites hosted or managed by them. The rest of the efforts made on your behalf will be discussed in a confidential one-on-one appointment. What we can share is that we will aggressively flood the search engines with positive information about you and/or your company.
Will law enforcement be notified on my behalf?
Each case is different. In severe cases where intervention by law enforcement is necessary to identify anonymous bloggers or website owners who are defaming you, than, yes, we will contact the FBI or other law enforcement entities on your behalf. [In Anabelle Taub’s case the FBI took the actions against her and her mother very seriously and responded to their complaints in a very favorable way].
Must I tell my story on the internet, or can I be anonymous?
Eco Press is at your disposal- we will give your suggestions of proven methods. However, it is always our intention to make sure that you’re comfortable with the game plan. It is our suggestion to face the lies written about you by your petulant antagonists head on!
How long will it take to remove or push down negative online information about me or my business?
Each case differs. What we can commit to is that in less than 24 hours of a signed contract you will start to see a swift aggressive campaign in your defense unravel itself online. Some cases take days, others may take weeks or even several months. However, it is our intention to get you some favorable results within 24 hours and a tangible campaign resulting in results within weeks. We do not want you to go through any unnecessary emotional pain or economic losses.
Will we help you create copywrite of any sorts to defame your petulant antagonist?
Absolutely not! We do not believe in engaging in a nefarious tit for tat with those who’ve created a negative smear campaign to start with. It lends itself to more travail as well as legal liabilities for all. We will only state facts and more often than not, will not mention names. We have a very strict policy regarding this matter and we never, ever deviate from it.
How will Eco Press fight to repair my reputation?
Due to the sensitive nature of these type of cases, we do not disclose all of our tactics. However, rest assured we have quite a few carefully engineered methods which yield positive search engine results. What we can share is that we’ll create a vast, varied campaign of copywrite (sometimes in the hundreds) which will flood the search engines. We have a team of copywriters, web designers, graphic designers and seo specialists who are just as passionate as Anabelle Taub. The entire team is sensitive to victims of online libel attacks.
Do you have a payment plan, or do I have to pay for services upfront?
First, please note, we completely understand that it is unjust to have to hire a online marketing defense firm in order to repair your reputation because of a nefarious vendetta to destroy your name and your business’ reputation! Because we understand how frustrating your situation is, we offer reasonable fees and yes, absolutely, we offer payment plans. You do not have to pay for all services up front, and we urge you not to pay any company any type of full upfront fees. Our six months or one year payment plan allows you to cancel after three months, with no penalty fees or additional obligations.
Do I have to sign a long-term contract?
No. We require a down payment and a three months minimum, after three months you are free to let us know if you’d like to continue, or would like to cease efforts. Typically, the campaign we take on to defend your personal or business’ good name, will turn itself into a marvelous positive marketing campaign which may yield you more profitable dividends than before the attack on your business began.
Since you don’t provide online information about the Eco Press’ Online Defamation Defense/Reputation Repair, when will I be privy to the type of plan which will be carried out on my behalf?
First and foremost, you will have to provide proof that you’ve been sabotaged, harassed or defamed online. Once we look over the information, we will go over what will be needed to push down and/or remove negative information about you, your business or corporation, which had been indexed by search engines. We are very discreet about our methods, for one very simple reason- we do not want to give petulant antagonists any additional ideas or methods by which to destroy innocent hardworking individuals, physicians or corporate owners.
Can you provide testimonials from prior clients?
Typically, no. Reason being is because our clients’ cases are confidential for many reasons. Additionally, it is human nature to want to read blogs or sites that are written about similar cases as individuals who seek our services. Imagine if we make this information public, and you have a website that is still hanging around somewhere in cyberspace, than some curious individuals want to look up your information and land on the defamatory website. They click on it, the more clicks, the bigger the risk of increasing the visibility of the very site/s you want to have pushed down as far as possible. In some cases, we may be able to show you some of our work. However, we are confident that you will be so happy with our services that we allow you to pay for our services in monthly payments, rather than taking the payments upfront.
Do you offer pro-bono work?
Yes, in very special cases. Usually law enforcement or third party entities are involved and ask as to help on an individual’s behalf. If you know of someone that is really in need of pro-bono work, please submit this information through our contact form. Proof of financial destitution is required, amongst other information. Also, we do offer free services to teens who are cyber bullied.
Are consultations free?
What do I need to submit for your review?
Any and all proof or material you have pertaining to your online defamation case.
What recourse do I have in severe cases of online harassment?
If warranted, we will contact the FBI or other law enforcement entities on your behalf, in addition to our services.
If I submit my information for your review, will it be kept confidential and does it obligate me to retain Eco Press’ defamation/reputation repair ?
First, your information will always be kept confidential. We will review your information free of charge and will make recommendations. Ultimately, you decide whether or not to retain our services. We will not push you either way. We understand the gravity of this type of online attack on a person’s psyche and we respect you. Don’t forget you’ve been abused once, the last thing we want is for you to feel taken advantage of for a second time. If you decide not to retain our services, we will either return your file back to you, or destroy it. Only Anabelle Taub and or top level personnel will have access to your file.
Do you offer any additional services other than defamation defense services?
Yes, we are a full service online marketing firm. Additionally, we offer:
- Web design services
- Graphic design
- Logo design
- Press Kits
- Press releases
- SEO (Search engine optimization)
- Marketing for start-up and existing businesses
- Social Media Marketing
- Search Engine Marketing
Eco Press’ owner brings with her online marketing experience since 1996.
We urge you to read through all of these questions before making contact with us. Furthermore, if you have additional questions, we may answer them during our free phone or person-to-person consultation.
Thanks for stopping by Eco Press. My name is Anabelle Taub. I am the owner of Eco Press- a digital social media marketing and web design boutique based out of Aventura, Florida. In my day-to-day meetings with new clients, I realized that many people have heard the terms social media, social networks, and so on, but don’t know exactly what it means.
So, here’s an easy explanation. Social networking refers to the practice of people interacting with one another, typically on the internet, about common interests, thoughts, ideas, and activities. In the mobile world, social networking is becoming very popular because people can use apps to tap into, and communicate (network) with their friends/followers. This is an extremely effective marketing channel which many business owners don’t tap into. In the very near future I’ll be unveiling a social network which I’ve worked on with a client for almost a year. In the meanwhile, here’s an example of a social network for kids created by Disney: http://clubpenguin.com.
If you’d like to have your very own mini facebook, or social network, and you have a concept, but are unsure on how to go about creating your very own social network, please call me at: 305-924-741. My social network building service starts as low as $1995. In a matter of a month (longer depending on how complex the concept is), you can have your very own social network.
Wishing you a great day,
Thanks for stopping by Eco Press- a Miami based digital social media marketing and web design studio. My name is Anabelle Taub. I am the proud owner of Eco Press, and have a passion for social media marketing, search engine marketing, and search engine optimization. As part of my services to my clients, I create and handle social media campaigns for small and large businesses alike.
I’d like to share some tips with you. Here’s what you need to know about creating a great facebook profile page:
- Use your avatar as your picture. If you don’t have an image on your profile, chances are visitors will not stop and look at your profile. Plus, your avatar is your social media brand. You should use it everywhere you go. I have a fun avatar attached to any content I put out on the internet. [The same avatar you see on the top left hand corner of this blog entry, is the one I use for Eco Press' page on facebook].
- Keep your profile up to date. Use automatic updates from Twitter if you need to, but keep it up to date. If you hardly ever update your profile, your page will go unnoticed.
- Update your status! I try to have fun with my status updates. Play around with it, you have nothing to lose.
- Post something new on your wall every now and then. Your wall posts show in your Facebook friends’ news feeds, remind them you’re around. Make an effort to keep in touch with contacts which may end up being potential clients.
- Fill in as much details as you can. The more you include about yourself (note, I don’t include pertinent information such as date of birth or any details that may result in me becoming a victim of fraud).
The above five tips are easy steps in engaging your friends and their friends on facebook. I recently went to have a pedicure in a new nail spa in Hollywood, Florida. I won’t mention where, I wasn’t happy with the service, but I don’t want to shed any bad light on them. In any event, I went there, because one of my friends on facebook commente on her friend’s facebook status which mentioned this new nail spa. I was in the area, and saw the sign as I drove by, so I stopped in. All because of facebook. Do you see the connection now?
Hope you found this article helpful. If you did, please share it with others.
Till next time,
Thanks for stopping by Eco Press’ blog. My name is Anabelle Taub. I am the owner of Eco Press, a Miami based digital social media marketing and web design boutique. I specialize in search engine optimization, social media marketing, optimized web design and much more. For more on my services, please click HERE.
Today I’d like to cover social media, and why it’s so important for small businesses. Social media is critical to your business/brand because it allows visitors to share your videos, articles, tweets, content and much more with their circle of friends. It allows for your visitors to leave a comment, post a bookmark, check an I’m a Fan check box and so forth. In turn, your visitors have created what I refer to as the buzz effect. Their circle of friends will often check out their likes or shares, which may result in more exposure to your web site, tweets or other social media links. In a matter of hours your one visitor may expose your content, tweets, etc., to their friends, and so on. Potentially, one like, or one share, may result in 50 page views. That’s just from one share or like. Now imagine you have 10 shares or likes.
Ideally, if you can afford it, you should have a professional social marketing firm handle your social media marketing needs. If you’d like to speak with me about marketing your business online, or running and handling a social media campaign for your business, please call me at: 305-924-7471.
Hi, my name is Anabelle Taub. I am the owner of Eco Press (based out of Aventura, FL), a digital social media marketing and web design boutique. Many of my Miami based clients enjoy top Google, Yahoo! and Bing ranking. Often, potential clients who search out their specific service will find them at least once (in some cases up to five times) on the first page of Google and the like.
If you’re looking for a search engine optimizer to market your business online, here are a couple of tips:
- Never, ever talk to an SEO professional (so to speak) who e-mails you out of the blue.
- No honest SEO professional can GUARANTEE you any type of ranking. If someone makes you a promise that seems too good to be true, run the other way!
- If the SEO professional (so to speak) tells you that they rely on linking your business on hundreds of other websites, this is a NO NO! The web crawlers will detect this and drop you off the face of the search engine world!
- If a search engine professional solicits your business, be sure to read their blog. If they don’t have one, they are not as professional as they claim to be! Read about their philosophy. Do they play it safe, or promise to push the search engines limits? If it’s the latter, run the other way.
If you’re considering several search engine optimizers, call their firms. Are they polite, friendly and professional? Or are they trying to sell you a whole lot of nothing? Ask for references. If they don’t provide references within 24 hours, you should think twice.
Please note: It is totally normal for search engine professionals not to mention the clients they optimize on their websites. After all, no business owner would want people to know that they pay for a service to appear on the first page of search engines.
At Eco Press, my philosophy is as follows: If you pay for my search engine marketing and search engine optimization services for your business (let’s suppose you own a nail salon), I won’t take on another client who owns the same business as yours if they’re located in the same county. If the search engine optimizer can’t guarantee you the same gesture of loyalty, you should reconsider hiring him/her.
If you’d like to speak with me personally about optimizing your business, please call me at: 305-924-7471.
Thanks for stopping by,
Thanks for stopping by. My name is Anabelle Taub. I own Eco Press, a Miami based (well, more specifically, Aventura) digital social media and web design marketing boutique, with an emphasis on green marketing. I specialize in SEO, also known as search engine optimization. If you’re a small business owner, it is imperative that you hire a professional search engine optimizer to ensure that your business is found on the first page of search engines such as Google, Yahoo! and Bing. I happen to know a thing or two (well, maybe more than that), about SEO.
I’d like to explain to you what SEO is, and how important it is. First, I have to emphasize that search engine optimization is a long-term effort. It requires a tremendous amount of ability, work, patience and consistency. Search engines such as Google, Yahoo! and Bing, drive the internet. As a small business owner , you’re probably going to depend largely on search engines to deliver your business’ message to your clients, both present and future. A high placement on search engines can mean a tremendous growth for your business.
SEO is a huge field, with literally thousands of little details that come together to make a successful campaign. If SEO campaigns are not handled in a professional and expert way, your business may be blacklisted for years to come from important search engines such as Google.
If you’re not a professional search engine optimizer, you will have a hard time separating tricks from solid strategies. Using tricks such as adding dozens and dozens of links on a multitude of pages, may get you initial success, but you will run the risk of getting penalized. Such penalties may result in your business being dropped to the fourth or fifth page of search engines. Search engines don’t like to be fooled. The bottom line, if you’re using trickery to gain a high-ranking for whatever it is that you’re trying to sell, the search engine’s programming team will remove you from the rankings.
Many of my clients sought my help after hiring unscrupulous so-called search engine optimizers, only to realize that they threw away hard-earned money, and have been dropped of the face of the search engine pages. I use only ethical, proven and consistent methods to make sure that my clients enjoy top-level ranking. Although I am based out of Miami, quite a few of my clients live in other states, as well as out of the country.
I don’t list these businesses on Eco Press, because most business owners really don’t want to be outed as having a marketing agency optimizing them. Although this is a completely legitimate method in today’s digital marketing world, it is completely understandable that as a business owner you would want your potential clients to be under the impression that your business stands out from the rest. In all honesty, as a search engine optimizer, I have to make this point, in order for your business to benefit from top ranking on the first page of search engines, it must mean that your website, content and marketing ads provide the most up-to-date information. In short, the more relevant your information is, the more it is geared to web surfers who are looking for what it is that you’re selling, the higher your ranking will be on search engines such as Google, Yahoo! and Bing.
If you’re interested in having your business enjoy top search engine ranking, please feel free to call me at: 305.924.7471. During a discreet consultation, I will show you examples of businesses which I’ve optimized, and gotten consistent top ranking results for.
Wishing you a nice day,
Thanks for stopping by Eco Press. My name is Anabelle Taub. I am the proud owner of Eco Press, a Miami based green digital marketing and web design boutique. It is my goal to write weekly, if not bi-weekly blog entries full of useful online marketing tips. I hope you’ll subscribe to Eco Press, and stop by often to read about the latest trends in social media and the importance of mobile marketing. If you own a small business, and you rely on reaching new clients via the web, you’ll be remiss by not learning about the changes that social media and search engine marketing will surely have on your business in 2012 and beyond.
Hope you’ll stop by again,
