Wow! Starting your own business can be really exciting, but when you're actually in the middle of the beginning (yeah, I said that) you learn a lot about yourself. First, always expect the unexpected. When you are unsure of the unknown and then the unknown becomes known, it's quite an experience. LocalHoma started off with a great idea conceived by my wife, Joan. The name and the idea of our business are both the result of her brainstorm. The word out on the internet street is that "Local" is the future of marketing, especially on the internet. The other idea... Continue reading

Yesterday we discussed what it means to have a web presence. Today we will discuss the first reason for why your business MUST have a web presence. Your business needs a web presence because the printed Yellow Pages are pretty much DEAD. Ok, ok.. if your primary demographic is people over about age 70, then it may still be effective for you. I just spoke to a business owner yesterday who told me that it is very frustrating to have to spend so much on phone book ads because their business sits in the crossroads of about 4 different towns....

First of all, what is a "web presence?" There was a time when you absolutely had to have a website in order to have any type of presence online. A website is nice and LocalHoma will soon be offering optimized sites for a fraction of the cost of our competitors, however, you don't have to own a website to have a web presence. This is primarily due to social media marketing. There are places to post one's information all over the Internet. For instance, you can set up a Facebook page, twitter page, stake the claim to your business on... Continue reading

Working from home is not a new concept. People have owned home enterprises for about as long as people have been around. A hundred years ago, people worked from home as farmers, blacksmiths, wheelwrights, physicians, seamstresses, gardeners, bee keepers, cattle ranches, moon shiners, taking in laundry and ironing. Oftentimes merchants would have their home in the back or upstairs of their businesses. As the industrial age took hold, working from home took a back seat to working outside the home, factory jobs and corporate security. Back in the 80's and 90's, before the dawn of the information age, a lot... Continue reading

We have been very busy at LocalHoma! We are currently designing localized web pages for Honey Milk Farms and Jennifer's Hair Outlet in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. The localized web page for Jennifer's Hair Outlet includes a coupon for a free shampoo with first haircut at her shop. We will be adding video, testimonials, Facebook and twitter accounts to both of their pages. These media enhanced pages are a really great value for $34.95 per month! Continue reading

Have you heard of the Firearms Freedom Act? Here is a simple overview and timeline. It was originally introduced and passed in Montana. It declares that any firearms made and retained in-state are beyond the authority of Congress under its constitutional power to regulate commerce among the states.

We went to Freddies in Sapulpa, Oklahoma on a Wednesday night. When we first walked in, we told the hostess that we had 2 people who wanted to be seated in a booth in non-smoking. We were seated immediately and we noticed that while the restaurant sported cloth napkins, glass glasses and the look of a fairly upscale restaurant; the overall atmosphere was homey and relaxed. My husband and I were both given menus and we promptly ordered Pepsi. The waitress provided very good service, she was upbeat and had some bounce in her step. :) There was another waiter...

Some towns are "small" towns and then there are towns where people jokingly say "Don't blink as we go through this town or you will miss it." Those are what I call micro towns. My mom was raised in an Oklahoma micro town called Teresita in Cherokee County. I can't find anything except this Google Map about Teresita and a photo of this little piece of Spring Creek which is for sale through Whistle Creek Realty (free advertisement!). I have fond memories of mom loading us in the car and letting us know we were going to Spring Creek in... Continue reading
