March 21st is celebrated annually as World Down Syndrome Day. Why? The date of 3/21 signifies the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome that causes Down syndrome. Plus, it’s a great excuse to celebrate such an awesome group of individuals that add so much to our communities, schools and society.
Supporting individuals with DS and their families is near and dear to our hearts. Owner of Lineberry Marketing, Jeff Lineberry, has a daughter with Down syndrome and also serves as the Vice President of the NC Down Syndrome Alliance. The mission of the NCDSA is to “To empower, connect, and support the lifespan of individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the community through outreach, advocacy, and education in North Carolina.”
Today, let’s remember that no matter our ability or disability, we all have value and that by supporting each other, we can make the world a better and more accepting place.

With Coronavirus impacting lives and economies around the world, we wanted to communicate with you how we are handling the situation here at Lineberry Marketing.
We will continue serving our clients as normal during our regular hours of operation; Monday – Friday from 8 am to 5 pm. We don’t anticipate any changes to this given that we work remotely. We will be suspending all in-person meetings at least through the end of March. For those of you who we are scheduled for an in-person meeting, we will be reaching out in the next day with an invite to teleconference instead.
As a small business owner, I share many of the same concerns as all of you reading this post. I do have a high level of confidence that the economy will rebound in quick fashion when this is over. Making sure your company is found in the search engines is going to be even more important to make up for any lost revenues.
Stay well, help others, wash your hands and be optimistic.

Recently I received an email from a client’s private email account with what appeared to be a Dropbox invite to view a PDF. Since I wasn’t expecting this email or file from our client my suspicions were raised. After emailing the client and asking if they had sent the email, which they hadn’t, I hovered my mouse over the button in the email that says, “Download PDF Here”. The link preview showed it went to a site other than Dropbox which clued me in further that this wasn’t a request from my client but indeed someone trying to gain account access information. This is what is often referred to as “phishing”.
By tricking you into entering your log in credentials on what you think is a normal log in screen for a site, they gather the username and password information. At a minimum this would allow someone into your Dropbox account and since many people use the same username/email and password for banking, email, social networks and others they can now use that information to access all of these accounts.

The News & Observer recently highlighted comments from Lineberry Marketing regarding webrooming, a new internet phenomena where people are researching products online and then going to a local store to make a purchase. The internet used to be percieved as taking business away from the local market but now it actually supplements the research prior to a local purchase. Great news all around for local small companies and businesses who are now taking advantage of the internet to increase revenue.
