Recovering from a Google penalty
August 29, 2013 by Ryan Trask
We recently had a Arkansas waterfowl hunting outfitter call us looking for a new website. He let us know that he had his website since 1996 and he had received a lot of business from his website - up until summer of 2012. After summer 2012, he said the calls just stopped coming in. Not only that, he was not even ranking in the first 500 SERP's in Google. Wow, not good; but not the first time we have seen this.
Copyright or Trademark your Logo

Copyrights and trademarks are used to protect your intellectual property against infringement. Copyrights protect works of authorship, such as written work, film, audio, digital files and logos. These usually apply to works you’ve created. Trademarks are used for words, phrases, and symbols that identify a company and distinguish it from others. Because our custom logos include original, and often times commissioned, artwork you may want both a copyright and trademark to protect your logo and your brand.

It's been 10 years since I first started 3plains. I wanted to highlight our first customer who has redone their website with us for the 3rd time now. Thank you to the Springer Family (Marshall, Colleen and Dillon Springer) for their business and friendship over the years.
4 New Custom Hunting Logos
July 11, 2012 by Ryan Trask
We've had a lot in the works in the way of custom logos here at 3plains for some time, so we thought it might be a good time to let you take a look at a few of them. We're still working through our current backlog of custom logo requests, but with taking the time to do each and every logo right, the work can often be slower than anticipated. It's really great to be able to share some of these finished designs with you. We can't wait to see them being put to use in the field.

It's time to get professional email and drop the hotmail, yahoo or your ISP email address. Your choice of email address is a factor in how you are perceived whether you like it or not. In fact, you may be losing sales and potential bookings. Let's look at a few examples.
