Improving Our Clients' Sites

Over the last year, Garrow Media, LLC has been making tremendous strides in converting websites into the newest form of Joomla that is available on the market. We have also been keeping ourselves updated with the latest algorithm changes being made by Google. Our clients' websites are now much faster and more responsive when being used on a smart device, including iPhones, tablets, and Android phones. We are also in the process of adding in social media posts for some of our clients to test and see if adding Google+ posts can have a positive influence on ranking.

Garrow Media Hires New Employees

In the last couple of months, Garrow Media, LLC has expanded to include three new employees: Steve Bloemer, Lewis Mendez, and Takeshi Tawarada. The employees come to us from recommendations from instructors in the area, as well as from some of them reaching out to Garrow Media to join our team to learn more about our field and how they can be of a benefit to our company and client base. They each have the ability to fully understand search engine optimization strategies and put them into practice. We are looking forward to seeing what our newest additions can provide for our team and for our clients.

Microsoft Planning to Cut Xbox One Prices by $50 Until the End of 2014

As the holiday season nears, many shoppers will be pleased to learn that Microsoft plans on cutting the price of the Xbox One gaming console by $50. This comes after the company already slashed prices by $100 when the Kinect camera accessory became available.

Beginning on November 2nd, 2014, the company will offer a temporary price cut of $50 on the Xbox One line in the U.S. until the end of the year. There is one bundle that comes with the Kinect camera accessory and will cost roughly around $449, down from $499. The standalone game console without any accessories will be available for roughly around $349, down from $399. The company says that they have already been using the same strategy in the United Kingdom.

Apple Profits Soar With iPhone and Mac Sales

Apple sold a record 39.3 million iPhones during the past quarter, and this included two weeks worth of sales for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The new phones went on sale in the U.S. and in some other countries around the world on September 19th, 2014. This sales figure beat what most Wall Street analysts had said for their predictions, and the sales were up nearly 16% from this time last year.

While this doesn’t seem like a big surprise that sales leapt during a quarter when a new phone was released, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook believes that the company will continue to see bigger gains in the next several months due to, of course, iPhone 6, as well as the fact that the new tablets and iPad minis are being launched soon.

Cook says that he feels that there will be a growing trend in iPhone sales due to the fact that it may be some individual’s very first iPhone, including among young teens that are getting their first phone altogether this upcoming holiday season. This time of year proves to be a booming time for new phone sales due to the fact that many people buy them as gifts.
