Online Marketing For A Small Business Or Home-based Business

Before we get into boosting online marketing for small businesses or home businesses let me share this story with you. "A preacher said, "Anyone with 'special needs' who wants to be prayed over please come to the altar." With that, Leroy got in line, and when it was his turn, the Preacher asked, "Leroy, what do you want me to pray about for you?"
Leroy replied, "Preacher, I need you to pray for help with my hearing."
The preacher put one finger in Leroy's ear, placed his other hand on top of Leroy's head, and then prayed and prayed and prayed for Leroy and the whole congregation joined in, with great enthusiasm. After a few minutes, the preacher removed his hands, stood back and asked, Leroy, how is your hearing now?
" Leroy answered, "I don't know...It ain't 'til next week."
