Driving around in a clean car is a great feeling. But in order to keep your car sparkling in the sun, you need to have it washed frequently. Depending on whether you go to an auto detailer or a standard car wash, you'll likely be faced with a variety of price ranges and services. Here's a list of what some companies across the country charge for a car wash, and how much more you'll pay for the "extras" that many businesses offer.
I remember being so fascinated with automatic car washes as a kid. Your mom would pull up the family car and then relinquish control to what seemed like a highly choreographed ballet of robot arms and soap ballerinas that worked together to clean your car. I would watch the bubbles, listen to the thumping and enjoy the whole experience.
When it comes to cost cutting, companies can take one of two routes. One way involves targeted cost cutting, with tightly focused initiatives to realign the cost structure in a particular business, geography, function or process.

Search engine optimization (SEO) is something many marketers, web designers and data miners consider an "American thing"—or at least an English thing. However, SEO bridges language differences, cultural variances and seeps into every aspect of websites (or at least it should!) and website rankings. As a quick reminder, SEO is a set of evolving best practices that dictates where a website "ranks" in a search engine based on the website’s key phrases and keywords. For example, if you Google "ice cream shop San Diego," there’s a reason certain shops come up at the top of Google rankings: SEO. Likewise, if you Google "helado Chihuahua," certain ice cream parlors in Chihuahua, Mexico will come up (and hopefully not Chihuahua-flavored ice cream).

Yes, our primary job is still to drive organic traffic and increase organic revenue — but the way that we do that now has changed so much that we’ve had to acquire additional skills in order to make that happen.
