No Time to Blog, Wanted to Say Hi

I really wanted to write a blog post today. But things were pretty crazy – I was hopping from one tunnel to another all day. Instead of writing a blog post after work tonight, I took my son out for a nice meal. Here’s a picture from my time with Aaron.

I’ll make some time to add a new blog post tomorrow.



No Time to Blog

Things are going great here are Aardvark Service. It’s never been easier to dig deep to make you happy!

No time to blog, though. Hope you had a fun St. Patrick’s Day.  It’s a favorite at the Green house.

Busier than an Aardvark on an Ant Hill

Mr. Green here again. I have been keeping so busy running my business, that I haven’t had time to write new blog posts like I want.

What I dig: Being busy.

What I don’t dig: How much of a time commitment this blog has turned out to be.

New Year, New Blog Posts!

It’s a new year and we’ve dug out from the holidays with a renewed focus on keeping our blog up to date.

Mrs. Green and the little Greens kept me busy in the past three weeks. I’ve been spending the past couple of days looking at end of year reports for our service business.

But here’s what I dig today: Our Service Area pages have tons of reviews from very happy customers! Here are the pages I’m talking about for our three main service areas:

Chapel Hill

Not only does this tell me that the Aardvark Squad is doing a good job on their service appointments, but it’s telling some of the new customer prospects that I’ve been sending to our website see the same thing.

RIP, Ant-y Anne

I feel pretty bad, actually.  Our old system of keeping track of our kitchen exhaust cleaning schedule on the whiteboard behind Mr. Purple’s desk (our Chief Fixing Officer) was working so great.  Until it wasn’t.

But it turns out that over the long Easter weekend, the entire Aardvark Service team’s favorite restaurant, Ant-y Anne’s burned to the ground.  And it bugs me to say it, but it was our fault.

We missed a cleaning appointment. We dug around in the file cabinet and found paperwork from when we cleaned the kitchen exhaust system last August and December.  Mr. Purple is pretty sure we were also there in February, but that paperwork was lost. We should have gone back in early-April, but oops…

So we started using a new field service application to help us keep track of our scheduling so nothing slips through the cracks again. We’ll also be able to prove to customers when we were there and show them before and after photos. That’s what I’m digging today.

Since Easter, we’ve been stuck going to Grubby Bell, and it isn’t the same as good ole Ant-y Anne’s. We do feel bad.

Welcome to the “Can you Dig it?” Blog!

I’ve been doing a lot of reading about how to make our website more popular in local search results on Google.  Adding new content in blog posts is one of the recommendations, so here’s our blog!  Welcome to it.

In each post, we’ll tell you what we’re digging.

Today, I’m digging our new website.  Our web agency told us these three things were the most important:

  1. Have a section for our services, so people understand what we can do for them
  2. Show our service areas, so people will know if we cover their area
  3. Make it easy for people to contact us

Because of all the content we’ll be adding to our blog, we’re expecting to see our search engine ranking jump to #1.
