While someone may have a gourmet kitchen with fancy equipment, that doesn’t make them a professional chef. The same can be said for business tools. Having premium tools means nothing if you aren’t using them effectively. This is often the case with how small companies choose to use their Social Media... an indispensable marketing tool that happens to touch on most aspects of our daily lives
There’s something to be said about the fact that “Google” is most people’s go-to word to describe searching for something online. “Google It” has become the new way to suggest looking something up. According to search experts, 88% of consumers who search for local businesses online either call or visit the business within 24 hours. It begs the question: If customers search for your services online, will they be able to find your business?
The journey to the number one ranking on Google differs across cities, towns and industries. But generally speaking, it’s safe to say that proper keyword placement, quick page load speed and quality content are the best bets for SEO growth. These strategies make it easy for Google to match searchers with results that are most relevant to them.
On the other end of the spectrum, there are a few strategies you need to avoid if your goal is to improve your ranking.
When building your Website, it’s important to accurately represent your company’s identity. Your Website is your #1 Marketing resource, after all. While branding and credibility are important, don’t forget the primary goal of your Website: to turn people searching for a service into customers. User experience is the key to a successful Website, which is why it needs to be revisited on a consistent basis.
Even though most companies like yours do the majority of their business over the phone or in person rather than online, having a Website is an essential step to getting in front of potential customers in your service area. Nowadays, your Website is your most valuable marketing tool.
Companies that don’t have a Website lack credibility and miss out on the growing number of customers that do online research before hiring a provider. In one report, researchers found that 63% of consumers primarily use a business’s Website to find and engage with a local service. In other words, businesses without a Website are missing out.
