007 Salena Thrasher: How Google Put This Goat Farm On The Map

One day, Salena went to buy chickens but came back with chickens and a goat. Unbeknownst to her, this would be the start of her business, Tristegus. She soon found out that goats cannot be by themselves. So, it wasn’t long before she had a small herd of her own. And when she found herself with excess milk, she decided to put her creativity to work and start making goat milk products. Salena started making goat milk products like lotions, shampoos, and soaps for her family. When a local farmer’s market opened, she saw an opportunity to test her products with the public. Seven years later, Tristegus is still going strong, thanks to Salena’s dedication and the support of her customers. The business thrived during the COVID pandemic due to Salena’s active online presence. Her products can be found in various places, and she continues to grow her business by making safe products!

What started as a joke from taking pictures of their food and posting them on Facebook has turned into a foodie powerhouse that is helping save local restaurants by working with them to get the word out and stay relevant during a time that has been extremely tough on the mom and pop shops of the world. Local foodies Chod Yarnelli, an electrician by trade, and his wife Jodi were in the fun habit of taking pictures of their food and posting them on their social media (as one does😄) until one night during dinner at a local restaurant, Jodi jokingly said, “let’s just start a Facebook group”… and with that #chodeats was born! Their public group describes itself as a fun loving group of foodies who love to create and share pictures of FOOD and encourage others to do the same.  It went from 0 to 5oo members in no time flat just from sharing it with friends and family.  When it hit 500 Chod decided it was

Why Every Business Needs a Website

By Hannah Cherubini | February 4, 2022
Posted in , ,

  Most businesses these days have a website. It has become an essential part of doing business. There are many reasons why every business should have a website, but we will discuss three of the most important ones here. First, a website is a great way to market your products and services. You can use it to tell people about what you offer, how much it costs, where they can buy it from you, or how they can get in touch with you if they have any questions. And because many consumers now go online before making purchasing decisions (including to find out where they should buy things or get services done), having an online presence is especially important. Second, a website can help you stay connected with current and potential customers. You can use it to let people know about changes in your company (for example, if you move offices or launch new products). And by including links to your social media pages, you can make it easy
