need web and social media services?

When conducting an online search, it doesn’t take long to see which websites are up to date or not. Technology and design trends change so rapidly that even a site built five to ten years ago can look outdated today. That is why in 2017, 57% of business owners chose to invest in an updated and improved website.

Five years ago, web design focused on punchy, statement graphics. Drop shadows, glares, and image slide shows were a big trend in website design, but today they’ve gone out of style.

This year, flat design is the most widely received and accepted web design. Think simplified, minimalistic and easy to read. A clean home page with beautiful images, portraying an overall picture of the location of and services offered by the company, usually featured on a flat page where you scroll down for more information.

What is Digital Marketing?

According to Wikipedia, Digital Marketing is an umbrella term for the marketing of products or services using digital technologies, mainly on the Internet, but also including mobile phones, display advertising, and any other digital medium.[1]

The way in which digital marketing has developed since the 1990s and 2000s has changed the way brands and businesses utilize technology and digital marketing for their marketing.[2] Digital marketing campaigns are becoming more prevalent, as digital platforms are increasingly incorporated into marketing plans, [3] and as people use digital devices instead of going to physical shops.[4][5]

Digital marketing activities are search engine optimization (SEO), search engine marketing (SEM), content marketing, influencer marketing, content automation, campaign marketing, and e-commerce marketing, social media marketing, social media optimization, e-mail direct marketing, display advertising, e–books, optical disks and games, and any other form of digital media.

3 Social Media Marketing Things You Should Know!!

The consistent buzz in the social media marketing world is overwhelming…the same message still resonates.

What is the message?

Are you anything without your audience?  Does your audience crave good, I mean good lean content?  Well give them what they want! Learn more about your audience and find relevant things to write about!!!

Three key components

content is king and engagement is queenContent is King and Engagement is Queen…so

Keep it simple (my motto!!)

Answer the Why, What, and How for your audience. There’s really no reason to make it more complicated than that.

Provide the good, the bad and the ugly!! (yep all three!!)

Be transparent in your content. Provide competitive differentiators and address the questions your customers really have, such as cost and value.

Always let your customers know that they are VIPs! (very important!!)

Provide great content on a consistent basis to grow your audience, but take it a step further and continue to engage with them to create lasting relationships.

Thank them for sharing your content, mention them in conversations, and reply when they ask questions. Keep it human; no one likes feeling like they’re talking to a robot!

Make yourself accessible too!

Your content should be easily digestible and relevant so that it can be shared across all of your channels. Make it easy for your customers to ask questions and engage with your brand, and consider creating a community where your audience can share their experiences with your brand and interact with each other.

Do You Want To Cut Costs ???? & Boost Business Profits????

 Cut Costs & Boost Your Business Profits…

Everyone wants to get the best services for the best price!

Whether you are a business owner or home based worker, you are coming to realize that with the growth of consumers relying on search engines and online marketing which is known as “Growth Hacking”can provide low risk, low cost and high returns!

In our massively digital economy, it’s actually more costly to not have a web presence!

The simple fact is that it increases the need for costly and potentially, obsolete paper-based processes and decreases the net quantity of customers you can catch. Consumers are actively using search engines and social media to meet many of their basic personal and business needs. No one would knowingly enable a savvy competitor to take advantage of and capitalize on such an error but it can happen without a visible web presence and social media in a digital economy.

Brick and Mortar – Not Necessarily!

Brick and mortar (also bricks and mortar or B&M) in its simplest usage describes the physical presence of a building(s) or other structure. The term brick-and-mortar business is often used to refer to a company that possesses buildings, production facilities, or store for operations.

Online 24/7 – YES!!

Electronic business, or e-business, is the application of information and communication technologies in support of all the activities of business. Commerce constitutes the exchange of products and services between businesses, groups and individuals and can be seen as one of the essential activities of any business.
Maintaining a website grants professionals the power to, “Highlight what channels you prefer to be contacted through, whether it’s via phone, e-mail, LinkedIn or Twitter or other social media platforms. This is so criticle!! Furthermore, including keywords and a more of a personal touch with your name on your website, will increase your chances of appearing higher in search rankings. There are a host of variables that come into play when optimizing your web and internet presence!! You will be able to meet millions of new customers when and where they’re ready, online. It is up to you and the service provider you choose!! Do what you are good at and let me work for you!

Manage Your Reputation…Better Yet Control Your Content!

controlling your reputation

 controlling your reputationManage Your Reputation, Control Your Content

Your website is one piece of your online real estate…your presence which by the way is under your control!! Websites allow you and your team to become the primary authority on your business whether it is home based, small business, entrepreneurs or your dream startup!!

You can start using your website (you should really already be there) to establish a voice in the virtual world and share content that’s relevant to your business in a variety of ways:

social media preventaive measuresTake preventative measures –These included carefully managing your social media account details, changing passwords, setting up a good quality social media monitoring tool, this is where an Online Retail Consultant can really assist!!  It is crucial that companies engage and “make friends”. When things get a little hectic and chaotic, it’s great when your customers and contacts leap to your defense.engage social media like me

Remove the content – If you’ve posted something you didn’t mean to, you can remove it. If someone else posted something you don’t like, you could ask them to remove it. If it’s illegal you can take a more legal route – but if its “malicious” or “misleading”, it may also break the terms and conditions on Facebook, Twitter and other networks, so you can ask them to remove it for you.

Engage – If someone is maliciously posting negative comments about you, they may be a “troll” –  Don’t respond to trolls. If the person has a genuine point and isn’t a troll, but you’re in the right – you should simply state the facts and make your case. If you’re in the wrong, you should apologize, grovel (a little) and offer to  make amends. This is the part where you convert “haters” into “advocates” if you’re diplomatic and/or fortunate.

Bury it – Not what I’d usually advise, but if you’re faced with a negative blog post that’s appearing in search results, and all else fails, you can simply publish and optimize content for the same words that the negative content is ranking for (perhaps your company name) to push the bad story down the rankings. It’s remarkable how quickly you can do this if you put your mind to it.
