Hearing Aids Charity Drive

Good news, students! This weekend we will be having a charity drive to help out our senior citizens. ERHS is partnering to encourage people to donate their old hearing aids. Tampa is known for it’s kind locals and their giving spirit, so let’s make this the best charity drive ever!

Hearing Aid CHarity Drive by SOAADS and ERHS

If your parents, grandparents or any of their friends and family have a hearing aid that they don’t use anymore, why not ask them if they will donate it to a worthy cause?

Likely many of us take hearing for granted, but some people aren’t so lucky. Lots of times, hearing health gradually declines so it’s hard to notice at first. After a while, though, people notice that they couldn’t hear as well as they used to. But, thanks to them and the generous friends and family of ERHS, our generous and business-savvy students help some families in need get hearing aids so they can hear the voices of their loved ones at Weebly.

Even children born with auditory problems can benefit. See this video of a boy hearing for the first time!

We’re happy to be able to arrange and participate in the event and would love to see you there on Saturday! Be sure to tweet to your friends about it. Take care. Go Chipmunks!

 

 

Search Engine Optimization in Tampa

Sometimes it helps to get a little bit of online visibility for a local business. Some of our students have taken to online marketing and we couldn’t be happier! When it come to search engine optimization, it’s something that has to be on the cutting edge of technology. We’re so proud of our student Helmut Hampton, who has started his own Tampa SEO business!

To explain a bit about what he’s been up to, think about this. Whenever you want to buy something, or want to know something, what to do you? You Google it, right? Searching for things online is just so common these days that we don’t think anything of it. But, who decides what comes up when you search? Well, Google does, but they use an algorithm to decide what is the best content and what is just junk. Search engine optimization is basically the art of making a website as best as it can be and making it something that people actually want to go to. There is a lot of technical expertise involved, but our entrepreneurial students aren’t afraid of that!

Social Media marketing is a must to successfully do search engine optimization. For a useful list of social media websites, you can check out this Google Doc that shows a handy list of social media websites you can set up for your business: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1tHtKEHbyF2yGidZJxCYAglsDIcbZHsNgBVEv1a_0ZBI/edit?usp=sharing Having a strong brand presence online is important for optimizing your site and you will be glad you did it.

YouTube marketing is also an effective way to help people find the right professionals for jobs around the house. Helmut is working with business’ websites and designing them to be attractive to the search engines. This type of marketing, called SEO, is very valuable for local businesses. When someone types in “plumber Tampa” the plumbers who show up first are the ones who are likely to get that business. How do those plumbers that are at the top get to be at the top? Sometimes it’s just by accident. But, many times it is because they have hired a professional search engine marketer and they have made the site attractive to the search engines. As a result, they rank higher in the searches, get more customers, make more money, improve the local economy, etc. It’s win, win, win!

As you can see, we are very excited to support Helmut Hampton and his local business and charities in Tampa, Fl. With his continued effort we’re sure he will continue to bring great value to his clients and their customers. Click here to check out Helmut Hampton’s Tampa SEO Twitter account.
