This page is about making connections. The web is the marketplace of the future and eyeballs are turning to the internet for entertainment, knowledge, advice, and shopping. Content generators have known for awhile that the net provides a strong connection to visitors, and now businesses are starting to realize that working with small entrepreneurs provides far better return-on-investment than traditional media like radio or bus stop ads.
In the online martial arts universe, KarateDepot.com has made a stronger push for working with independent sources than any other retailer, which is why they are beginning to trump well established brands like AWMA and Century.
I initially began to work with Karate Depot in order to create giveaways and reviews on my own site. I benefited because I was given the chance to thank my readers for their support and encourage more people to visit my site regularly. Karate Depot benefited because they were gaining brand awareness and links back into their site.
Having worked on both sides of the aisle (both as a blogger and as an SEO Specialist for established companies), I'm in a rare position to help connect bloggers and business owners who wish to expand their brand with a company looking to work with those kind of people.
