Keeping the internet from coming between you and your customers


Cloud Wise Joe

(“I learned the hard way so you don’t have to!”)

Every Saturday morning at 9, Cloud Wise Joe helps listeners take control of how the Internet impacts their businesses – and their revenue.

Joe talks about the latest news from the digital world, but most importantly, he answers your burning tech questions. He, too, has run companies (and is still running companies), and got really, really mad about how businesses were being held hostage to technology. He learned – a lot – the hard way – so you don’t have to. He has real-world, constantly updated insights on what works – and how you can take back the control of your business. He covers it all – websites, Internet marketing, Google, CRM (customer relationship management) systems, CMS (content management systems), and all else digital.

This is where you’ll learn what you need to know to manage the tech side (and tech marketing side) of your business as effectively as you manage all other aspects. There is no other show like this, and it’s your chance to get those important questions answered.

About Cloud Wise Joe

Joe Mckenna is passionate about leveling the playing field for small businesses. The internet has been around long enough that you can’t get revenue traction anymore unless you know the rules of the digital game and the tools that the winners use.

Joe has co-founded two technology companies: Cloud Potential (“Creating content Google and your customers will love”), and Joe’s Web Geeks (“Marketing repair & setup”) He also co-founded Cloud Wise Academy, a fast-paced technology school, that is teaching people the latest in-demand technology skills. Joe also was the president of a leading background check company (where he used technology to increase revenue and lower costs – and they called him the “app whisperer”) before co-founding Cloud Potential.

Why Website Speed Matters To Your Web Trafficvideo

Speed Matters! How A Slow Website Impacts Business

Our client was losing thousands of views, which is not a small amount and now with a few changes, they are going back up. Something happened and we looked at is as a Google Algorithm update, which that might have been part of it. We were asking ourselves if some other competitor came in with incredible new content or knocked them down on keywords; we were wondering what happened.
