YOU'VE JUST BEEN HACKED!

YOU'VE JUST BEEN HACKED!

by: Adam

Check out the Cambridge Chamber latest “spectrum” magazine with my article on hacking and the issues related to it. Here is the full article: You’ve probably heard by now or have been affected by it, and that’s your passwords getting hacked. Yes, even the largest of companies still don’t have a full security protection from hackers being able to get into the server to get your information. In the past few months, Linked In, Tumblr, and Myspace, just to name a few, have all been compromised with username and password information getting leaked. Why would it affect you? Identity theft is the number one crime in North America. With credit cards and the simplicity of doing online payments, it seems so simple to start putting together an identity of yourself with a credit card to be set up instantly using your information. All of this can be done sitting at…

Is your website working for you?

Is your website working for you?

by: Adam

The majority of requests FPM3 receives involve new websites or better yet, to improve to have a well groomed website. Let me share a couple ideas for you to make your business website a more productive part of your selling process.  First of all you must keep your website current.   Sounds so simple, right? It is not only important, it is critical to make frequent changes that include adding content on a regular basis.  After all, your website is your opportunity to connect with more businesses and prospects  to tell your story and drive more revenue. However, most business people, like you, set up a website… and then they do not look at it again for months or even years. Everyone should be able to go onto their website and make changes or add content which is why we highly recommend WordPress whenever possible. A few facts about WordPress: Currently there are over 75 million WordPress sites…

Happy Holidays and an end to 2015

Happy Holidays and an end to 2015

by: Adam

Happy holidays everybody. It’s been a heck of a year. 2016 looks very promising in regards to success on many levels.   Technology has advanced once again over the past year and I’ve had the honor of being a host on 900 CHML with Bill Kelly with  Tech Talk, sponsored by Hamilton Limo,  every Friday at 11:35 a.m. We will continue to talk about technology and how it integrates with today’s lives and with small business. I’m excited to share that it will continue into 2016 and I will be planning to prepare an outline of all the technology and 2015 I thought was revolutionary and innovative. And of course I will try to put my perspective of what the future may hold for 2016 when it comes to technology and small business. One thing is for certain in Canada and Ontario.  We are about to go through a pretty nasty…

Sales - critical to any business

by: Adam

Well it’s official.  I will be once again be teaching at Mohawk College in 2016 to second year radio student’s,  sales and marketing. I have had the luxury of teaching this course for a few years now and managed to keep in touch with a few students from my past classes that have successfully manage to get jobs in the media field but also with students who have managed to achieve success through employment in other fields of work. It makes me proud and truly I do enjoy the position of teaching at Mohawk College the art of sales as I love seeing the students succeed by using these sales skills in both their professional and personal life. One example is Ruby, who was a student in my class a few years back where I recently received a lovely thank you card from her. Ruby is working for the Flight…

Hi I'm a Successful Failure

by: Adam

I’ve been told many times, that they are amazed at how successful I am.  The reality is that me…or my life is not a success.  I’m the pure example of what failure looks like.  If anything, I’m a successful failure! I started my business journey in 2001, but really got it rolling officially with my incorporated business in 2003.  It was then called Finger Print Marketing & Design.  It wasn’t long after (4 months) that another company called something similar sued me for name infringement or something stupid like that.  I lost as they had registered their business 8 days before me.  Seriously…8 days.  Somehow that wasn’t caught by the lawyers. So began FPM Marketing & Design Inc.  I then changed in 2005 to FPM3.  Just a side note; FPM (Finger Print Marketing) and the 3 stands for March 3, 2003 when I officially incorporated the business.  Nothing to rocket…

Happy New Year - FPM3 2015 starts now!

by: Adam

It may only be November to some…but at FPM3 we are already celebrating 2015 with our new corporate new year.   It’s been a hell of a busy adventure since 2003.  Boy, do I have stories for you.  Some are funny, some happy and even a few very Sad. However, one thing that I can confirm is that this last year has been the best in over 10 years. Something that the team here can celebrate with. I’ve had a lot of staff work with me since 2003, some have been very good and some I wish I never met. My current team I’m very pleased to have with me as they have shown the ability and the skill and passion of what it takes to be in the advertising agency world. With that said, one day I may share my full story with you if you are ever so inclined…

FPM3 sponsors Volleyball team "FPM3"

by: Adam

                      I am pretty excited to announce that FPM3 has sponsored a volleyball team that is rightly named “FPM3” and we got the team shirts (finally) in today.  I threw mine on and was pretty excited about showing off the FPM3 colours not to mention it has my name on the back, in the case I can’t remember I can always take it off and look at it. The FPM3 volleyball team so far has a straight winning streak and is stacked full of amazing talent.  Kind of like our company (oh boy…getting biased here).  They’ll be posting updates and photos of themselves in the coming weeks as they play each week for the championship Volleyball trophy/ribbon or whatever they will get. I also have to announce that I’m the “fill-in” for players that can’t make it.  Let’s hope that…

Your next great marketing campaign is clicks away.
