Swimming Will Be a Hot Topic for Businesses

by Mary Emma Allen on August 15th, 2008


With Michael Phelps setting Olympics records, swimming will be taking a “front seat” in sports, in business, and in general public interest.  More youngsters will likely want to become involved in swimming lessons and events. 

How can you tie this fascination with swimming into your business, either with actual products or with your PR philosophy? 

Also, as a family activity if the home business owner has children, reading books about swimming and participation in this sport will become popular. 

What are there in the way of books about swimming for entertainment and instruction for young and older alike?

    Hi Everyone,
    I have a carpet cleaning business in Houston,TX that was doing pretty good until the economy went bad, and with it my clientele. I have a website for the business but I dont
    know what I have to do the get it to show up in a search. Right now it’s somewhere in the yahoo/google netherworld (LOL).

    Is there someone on here that can give me some insight or know of anyone that coud give me insight on how I can get my local website on the front
    page of a Yahoo or Google search to increase my business without it costing me 5 or 10k $$$? If so please share with me.

    I thank you and my hungry over-eating children thank you.
