3 – Make sure your site has mobile capabilities.
With more than 60 percent of Americans owning smartphones (and about 1 in every 4 Americans only using their mobile devices to go online), having a mobile version of your business’ website is no longer an option if you want to grow your firm online.
Some of the reasons that having a specific mobile site for your business (rather than just relying on your business’ standard website to be the mobile version also) are that:
- Standard sites may not function as they should when they are viewed on mobile devices.
- Standard sites can appear cluttered, jumbled and just plain messy on mobile devices.
- Mobile devices tend to rely more on images, buttons and less text, making them as easy as possible to use on smaller screens.
Of course, there are options like responsive design (so that your standard site can have a design that responds to the size of the device on which it is being viewed).
The bottom line here, however, is that, in order to grow your firm online, you need to think about how your site will do on mobile devices so that you can position your business for optimal success with prospective online clients.
4 – Don’t forget about social media marketing.
When it comes to effective Internet marketing, developing a well-designed, optimized website is only one component of the entire effort. Another essential step of this effort, which is key to helping you grow your firm online, is social media marketing.
To this end, some of the important things that may need to be done include (but are not strictly limited to):
- Setting up social media accounts for your business on the major networks (including Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn)
- Linking your business’ social media accounts to your business website (and vice versa)
- Regularly posting compelling content and/or comments on all of your business’ social media accounts to continue to keep these accounts active, grow your following in these accounts and, ideally, drive more traffic to your business’ website.
Here, it’s important to point out that, with social media marketing:
- Regularly posting is key to building an audience.
- If you don’t have time to regularly post to these accounts, hiring professionals – like those at Epic Web Results – will be your best bet for maximizing your social media marketing and overall Internet marketing efforts.
