Common Questions

Why Do I Need a Website?

Simply put, it is the most cost-effective means of advertising. The Internet is revolutionizing entire markets, allowing all businesses, large or small, the same opportunities to market their products, services and information on the Internet in an effective and appealing manner.

Compared with attracting new customers through advertising or conventional marketing, websites are amazingly low cost and the possibilities are endless. Search engines, referrals and the vast linking mechanics of the worldwide web provide volumes of “foot traffic” unimaginable in a “brick and mortar” storefront setting.

So should I have a business website, even if my business is small and sells products I don’t think can be sold online?

Yes, if you have a business, you should have a website. Period. No question. Without a doubt. These days, there’s very little that can’t be sold over the internet. More than 20 million shoppers are now online, purchasing everything from books to computers to cars to real estate to jet airplanes to natural gas to you name it. If you can imagine it, someone will figure out how to sell it online.

That said, it’s not enough that you just have a website. You must have a professional-looking site if you want to be taken seriously. Since many consumers now search for information online prior to making a purchase at a brick-and-mortar store, your site may be the first chance you have at making a good impression on a potential buyer.

The coffeehouse option leads to a WordPress site with a multi-level drop down to navigate to all the various store menus, blogs, music, art, and calendar of events at the popular establishment.

Music and Freedom

Newsletter for July 4, 2014

The Declaration of Independence

The Genius of Jefferson’s Words

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…”

As a writer and appreciator of great philosophy, I am constantly amazed by these three dozen words which lead off the Declaration of Independence. In this succinct passage written 238 years ago, Thomas Jefferson summed up the essence of freedom which has not been articulated so beautifully or accurately since.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July, everyone!

AjaIn keeping with our solid tradition of only naming dogs after Steely Dan songs from 1977, I’d like to introduce “Aja”, whom we adopted from the Harrisburg Humane Society this past Tuesday.

Aja arrives following the 13-year reign of “Josie”, who entered Dog Heaven this past March.

“Freedom Song”
Some lyrics from a brand new, yet-to-be-recorded song by Sinclair Soul © 2014

Let the people be free, let the people be free
Let them bend no more knees, let them crow no more pleas
Let them swing from no trees
Let them build their own home, let them roll their own stone
Let the people be free

When the people are free, all the people are free
They may rock or may breed, they may talk or may screed
But they’ll feed their own needs
They will decide on their own how to set their own tone
Let the people be free

May the people are free, all the people are free
Whether they draw from the seas or they sail on the breeze
Or they talk to the trees
The world is their zone the construct their own throne,
Let the people be free
