Marketing Your Business

If you own a business, no matter how small, you know that having your own website isn’t an option anymore.*

* If you’re just starting your business, haven’t gotten around to getting a website, or if you have one but aren’t happy with it, let’s get that fixed right away!  I’ll make it affordable and almost painless.

Yes, you need a website, but not just any website. You need one that’s attractive, engaging, with a contemporary design, and great graphics too.  A website with a purposely configured internal structure that helps your site get found on the first page of Google,  not the last.  You also need social signals and accounts, Google Maps, and listings on all the key online review sites and directories.

Whew! That’s a lot.

Not a problem. We’ve got you covered.

And whether you’re the type of business owner who likes to manage your website yourself, or the type who prefers not to ever have to think about it, or somewhere in between, we’ve got you covered there too.

Our local internet marketing services include:

Everything you can think of that has to do with building and maintaining websites from initial concept to daily management:

  • Domain name research and assistance if you need a domain,
  • Website design and set up,
  • Managed hosting with updates and frequent full backups,
  • Industrial strength website security (still so overlooked!),
  • Graphic design services,
  • Videos,
  • Google ranking optimization (aka: SEO or Search Engine Optimization) including keyword research if needed,
  • Reputation management, and
  • Social media account set-up and management.

You can pick and choose the services you want to create the custom plan that fits your needs and budget.

Something else you probably already know — the internet loves video. That’s why YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine on the planet!

That means: video is no longer optional either.

So if your small business marketing plans don’t include video and lots of it, you’re missing traffic and sales because your customers — or would-be customers — are looking for you online.

Those potential customers are more attracted to and engaged by websites that feature video (you know, like those of your competitors). And the same is true for social media posts that feature video.

In short videos generate:

more engagement . . .

more clicks . . . 

more conversions . . . 

more revenue . . .

more profits!

In short, YOU NEED VIDEO, and you need it now.

For more information about how you can incorporate video marketing into your marketing strategy affordably, see my Video page! Also see the Reputation Management page for a really great, inexpensive video everyone should have on their website.

But as great as it is, video isn’t everything. As you know all too well, there are other things to bear in mind.

That’s not all you need

You’re really good at what you do. That’s why you started your own business.

But you can’t do everything.

How can you get – or keep! — your business up and running fast if you’re spending all  your time on a To Do List like this:

Develop and Manage Your Website

Do you even know how to find the right domain name, register it and find the right hosting?

How about the software? Are you completely comfortable with WordPress or is that more software you need to learn? Do you know how to keep your site safe and secure from hacking?  How about the best plugins for your business?

Do you know ANYTHING about SEO (search engine optimization), which is essential for getting good ranking in the search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo)?

 

Design Your Logo

Do you have the right graphics software and are you competent enough using them to create a the right logo for you that will convey just the right customer-attracting message for branding purposes?

 

 

Find and/or Create Graphic Images

You need an almost endless supply of graphics for blog posts and social media, not to mention ads, coupons and flyers if you use them. Even if you’re capable, it’s time-consuming and takes  you away from core business activities — where the money is made — so they must come first.

 

 

Manage Social Media

Setting up and managing social media accounts, pages, posts, and ads, including creating Covers for your various accounts can be exhausting — but essential nonetheless.

And MORE!

It’s. All. Just. Too. Much.

That’s where I come in.

How It Works  . . .  (keep reading)

Here’s how it works

Let me be clear. I can’t do all this for hundreds of people. Beyond some of my one-off products and services, I can only manage a handful of clients on a monthly contract basis. Maybe that includes you, maybe not.

My plan is to allow each client to tailor your services to your specific needs so you can limit your involvement to just what you’re personally comfortable with:

  • If you want to be heavily involved in your website — great. If you’ve got better things to do and basically don’t want to be bothered with it much, I can handle that too.
  • If you personally enjoy social media and want to do that yourself (using my graphics, perhaps?), no problem. If you recognize its importance but don’t have the time or interest — I’m available.

In other words, to borrow a phrase, I want to be your friend in the digital marketing business.

So the question is:  what do you need in terms of helping build or manage your internet presence? What is it that you can’t, don’t want to, or don’t have time to manage yourself?

From website to SEO to marketing graphics to social media and beyond, I can help. And I’d be delighted to do so.

And really, as critically important as all this internet presence stuff is, your time could probably be better used for those things only you can do to grow your business, especially since the internet is only getting more complicated as time goes on.

So let’s talk. Tell me what you’re doing, what you’d like to do (or not do), and let’s see how I can help you. We’ll just have a friendly, no pressure conversation.
