  • "The way we use the author box is that we want to have authors with letters after their name, depending on the space you're in." -Dale Bertrand, President, Fire&Spark

  • "Most e-commerce websites are built on solid platforms like Shopify, WooCommerce, etc. They won't have huge opportunities to improve page speed and two X or three X organic traffic." -Dale Bertrand, President, Fire&Spark
