What is the one device that most people can’t leave their home without? It’s their mobile phone!

According to the PEW Research Center, 95% of the U.S. population has a cell phone and 77% of the U.S. population has a smartphone only.

Creating a dynamic Internet presence is much more than checking off a list of digital marketing tactics. It's understanding how each of those tactics are related and connected to each other, which is what many professional marketers call a digital ecosystem.

At the center of a digital ecosystem is a company's main landing page. Every other online marketing tactic should branch out from or be redirected to a well-developed website. The main site doesn't need to be loaded with bells and whistles, it just needs to be a central hub where accurate service and contact information is displayed.

RS&I's job is to set authorized retailers up for success as a small business and that includes helping them understand the importance of having a functioning website to support all of their online marketing. Let's take a look at six steps an authorized retailer or any small business owner should consider for their digital marketing plan.

NuvoH2O has developed a solution to treat hard water without the use of salt and RS&I has teamed up with them to make it a strong business opportunity for our authorized retailers.

Our retailers are already in homes and businesses providing consumers with great options for TV, Internet, home automation and security, Internet phones, and energy solutions. Why not provide an option to sell an effective and safe water softening system?

We think it's a great idea, especially since only 25% of homeowners are treating their hard water. That means 75% of homeowners who live in hard water areas could be benefiting from this independently proven water treatment system.

Since teaming up with Vivint Smart Home, it's been an excellent sales option for our authorized dealers throughout a majority of the United States. Along with all of the other products and services dealers can sell by partnering with RS&I, providing customers with the leading smart home and automation service from Vivint has been a rewarding experience for everyone involved.

Although, several of our dealers have identified a specific need.

The ability to actually install a Vivint system has been previously reserved for Vivint's technicians only. Until recently, our authorized dealers have only been able to complete the sell and then pass the installation onto the Vivint team. But now, our dealers have both options!

Over-the-air television is making a comeback. Before 2009, it wasn't a highly favored way to watch TV because of its analog signals that were often spotty and blurry. When the laws changed in the United States, the signal went from analog to digital and residents across the nation were able to get clear reception in high definition. 

With all of today's TV-viewing options and their associated costs, over-the-air (OTA) broadcasting provides some relief. It has taken a while to catch on, but more and more viewers are seeing the benefit of getting a good antenna to provide them with free local channels and a high quality image.
