Many businesses do struggle with how exactly to get a good on-line presence. The web is a vast and highly competitive market, with tens of millions of websites ranging from very aggressive big businesses that are 100% focused on their on-line superiority down to 1 page websites that were set up by a student back in the early 1980's. In order to get the most out of having a website, there are a few things that need to be done:
The design is an important factor of any website; if people do not like the look, feel and usability of your website then it will act as a stumbling block to your future business. Getting a good website designer to have a look over your site and troubleshoot may well be a good idea. Often a fresh pair of eyes can see things that you cannot.
Search engine optimisation has to be one of the most important factor for any company that has a website. This will ensure the website gets a lot of visitors that come to the site and (hopefully) place an enquiry/purchase from the site. More of less all businesses that have a website are doing SEO (or using an SEO company to do their SEO work).
Internet Marketing & PPC
This is to supplement the SEO work; PPC is a great tool to use whereby you are finding it difficult to rank naturally for certain key phrases. There are a wide number of internet marketing companies around the UK that can advise and help in getting a campaign set up. PPC advertising is something that can be quite tricky to set up and manage; as there are a lot of variables. The thing to remember (which is not a good one to swallow) is that most of your budget will be used up by general browsers, competitors, students and job hunters. Many companies will focus on only one of the above (maybe having a great looking website for example) however the key is to do all of them. By having a great website, well optimized and a very targeted PPC campaign – you should be as good as possible. To get the most out of your website you do need to try to use all the tools available (but using them right and getting the right advice) to ensure that your site is as fruitful as possible.
