The steps to get your online marketing plan in place

Build It and They Won't Come

We hear it all the time - a small business owner paid a good amount of money to a web designer to build a website, and thought that having that website automatically meant more customers.  But the customers didn't come.

Simply building a website isn't enough (and I'm hoping by your being here it means you figured that out!). Getting customers to actually find your website is an entire separate process - one that 95% of web designers don't understand.

The Number One Way People Find Your Business Online is by Search

Search engines have become a staple of our society. They help us answer questions, research facts, and find products that we need or want. The "Big Three" (Google, Yahoo!, and Bing) are constantly updating their servers to provide searchers with the latest, most relevant and helpful results that they can generate.

These search results are highly dependent on the websites that they are crawling for information such as products, services and even location. If your website isn't optimized to feed the search engines all they need to know (and more!) about your business, you'll never rank for the terms your customers are using to try to find you. And that's our specialty. We'll help you move up those search results for industry-related phrases through our multiple optimization techniques.

So Helping with Ranking is What You Do?

Getting businesses better search engine rankings is part of what we do.  What is most important is that you get more qualified customers.  We use various methods online to get more exposure to your business - which includes getting you to the top of organic searches on search engines.  But there are other ways to get more exposure, too.
