Google Will NEVER Call You

You will never, ever receive a phone call from Google. Folks, we can’t stress this enough!

100% of those phone calls you get, pretending to be Google, or promising to “Get you on Google” Or “Get you on the Google Map” ARE SCAMS!

You should have zero compassion for these liars. Simply say “Please take us off your list” and hang up!

Reduce Your Phone Camera Image Size for Google Image Search SEO

Google Loves Images AND they love fast loading websites. Beautiful, high resolution images make for SLOW loading websites. It’s tricky to balance a high quality image and small file size. Modern phone cameras take beautiful, but HUMONGOUS file sized pictures. Sometimes as large as 5MB and 5,000 pixels wide! There are two desired goals when reducing an image:

1. Reduce the”file size”

2. Reduce the physical dimensions, the actual width and height in pixels.

We’re trying a new Android app from the #GooglePlayStore that got the best reviews:

(we liked it so much, we paid the $12.99 for the premium version)

Photo and Picture Resizer


*** We especially like that we can rename the image file name (with relevant keywords of course) right in the app! ***

According to their marketing:

The easy-to-use Image Resizer helps you quickly reduce your picture size.

The easy-to-use Image Resizer helps you quickly reduce your picture size or resolution. It can be used for text messages, e-mails, Instagram, Facebook, web forms, etc. Send your pictures much faster to your friends and family.

If you want to quickly reduce the picture size or resolution, Smart Image Resizer is a perfect choice. Photo Resizer allows you to easily reduce photo size without losing quality. You don’t have to manually save resized pictures, because they are automatically saved in a separate folder titled ’Pictures/PhotoResizer’ and are accessible via build-in Gallery app.

Smart Image Resizer for your Android device is a utility app that lets you resize the image by selecting the right resolution. Photo Resizer is a free application designed to help you resize images quickly and conveniently (easily). Picture Resizer performs one simple task like resizing the image in a fast and easy-to-use way. This picture resizer maintains the picture aspect ratio by providing a resolution list based on camera resolution. Photo Resizer helps you resize photos before posting them on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit, Tumblr, Google+, VKontakte, KakaoTalk, etc.

When you send the e-mail with attached pictures, you will often find that the e-mail exceeds the message size limit. For example, if your email account allows you to send messages up to 5 megabytes (MB) and you include just two pictures in the attachment (today’s pictures taken by a phone or tablet camera are about 3 or 4 MB), you will probably exceed the maximum message size. In this case, this image resize app is very helpful, because it helps to avoid exceeding the maximum message size limits associated with most email accounts. Resize pictures before composing the e-mail and then attach much smaller pictures.
How Smart Image Resizer works:
1) select the picture

2) the picture resizer displays the selected photo
3) select the resolution (width x height) from the list

4) the selected picture is reduced and displayed

Smart Image Resizer Features:

* Absolutely free

* Batch resize (multiple photos resize) (Android 4.4 and above)

* Original pictures are not affected

* Resized pictures are automatically saved in the ‘Pictures/PhotoResizer’ directory
* Very good quality of the resized photos

* Photos resized several times do not lose quality
* Browsing photos by gestures

* Reducing photo size preserves original quality and aspect ratio
* Very good compression result (2MB picture is shrunk to approx. ~100 KB – for resolution 800×600)

* The resized photo can easily be:
**sent via email or text message

**shared to social media (Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Google+, VKontakte, KakaoTalk, etc.)
* Predefined most-used photo resolutions
* Possibility to define custom image resolution

Having a high definition camera on your phone with thousands of mega pixels per inch is great, but if you can’t send your pictures to your friends, you might as well throw your phone and charger in the snail mailbox and ship it off to your friend, right? Never again! Shrink and Share your photos in an instant! Pictures of your kids, concerts, and even the one that didn’t get away… Shrink and share it!

Greg believes that the internet is one of our best marketing tools – increasing in importance every day as new generations of buyers and sellers enter the economy. Young buyers don’t remember life before the internet, and seasoned buyers are changing their habits.

Today, Greg manufactures his own products and represents other manufacturers, focusing most of his attention on the energy sector. The oil & gas industry is a market that you might think is internet-averse. However, Greg drives 90% of his new business through internet marketing by focusing on SEO.

Google and other search engines look for properly optimized content in the form of text, images, and video. Greg shows his students easy ways to create great content to capture the attention of buyers – while leveraging adjacent tools such as Google Maps, YouTube, and Google Image Search to increase their website traffic. His holistic approach is important because Google is connecting the dots between all internet platforms in their ranking process.

As opposed to traditional advertising where sellers pursue potential customers, the internet is a place where customers actively search for sellers. It’s accessible 24-7 from a device that fits in everyone’s pocket. Greg’s central question is this: “Will buyers find you or your competition first?”

Experience and Credentials

After owning two successful Ace Hardware stores in Houston, Texas, Greg knew a thing or two about retail. While operating the stores, Greg earned a B.A. degree in Marketing, then sold the stores to go to work for Ace Hardware Corporation where he consulted hundreds of Ace store owners on business growth strategies. After a successful tenure at Ace, Greg worked for AT&T in their internet advertising division for five years, before launching his manufacturing business and mastering the internet processes required to succeed.
