Each year, the Tucson Metro Chamber honors and recognizes accomplishments of southern Arizona’s small businesses through its Copper Cactus Awards, presented by Wells Fargo.

We were honored to earn the award for business growth this year. We recently completed the Mountain View High School College, Career & Life Skills Center, which will accommodate the school’s special needs program, and broke ground on a new K-8 school, which will integrate computer, science, technology, engineering and math (C-STEM) into every class, both in the Marana Unified School District. Other area projects include the Tucson Premium Outlets and Gladden Farms Elementary School.

Food waste costs corporations, consumers

food waste

Up to 40 percent of food grown, processed and transported in the United States is never eaten, yet 1 in 8 Americans – or 40 million people – suffers food insecurity. The average four-person family wastes $1,500 a year on food.

Food waste in manufacturing and packaging costs corporations $2 billion each year – plus $15 billion for farmers – while dumping 52 million tons of waste in landfills.

National food and beverage industry leaders – including Tyson Foods, Walmart and Conagra Brands – are seeking to eradicate food waste by changing policies and rethinking how to use previously discarded foodstuff. Learn more here.

Conscious consumerism is on the rise

conscious consumerism

Companies are seeing that long-term investments in social, environmental and governmental initiatives are more beneficial than initiatives without sustainable practices or missions.

The Aspiration Redwood Fund, which helps professionals “invest in what matters,” reports that “corporations that are actively managing and planning for climate change secure a 67 percent higher return on investment than companies who refuse to disclose their emissions.”

The total volume of sustainable investments nearly doubled from 2012 to 2014 as conscious consumerism increases in popularity and professionals align investments with values. The workforce is starting to show that doing well and doing good are synonymous.

How artificial intelligence affects SEO

artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence is not science fiction anymore. AI is here, and it’s part of our daily lives.

When searching the web, you’re interacting with AI. Search engines use AI to deliver the best results based on intent, prediction, buyer cycle, niche and real-time data.

When you search-optimize your website, content is king, and it is no different with AI. RankBrain and other AI try to think like humans, so content should be written for humans. Be conversational, timely and relevant as you lead your target audiences through the customer journey.

Look closer at how AI works in SEO.
