(SEO) Search Engine Optimization
Every site I build includes a standard SEO strategy. Several important factors need to take place with SEO and I see to it that the items listed are complete:
- URL's will be relevant to content and structure
- Site pages load fast...Less than 5 seconds
- Effective and unique page titles
- Navigation is user-friendly and search engine friendly
- Web copy is optimized to include relevant business strategy keywords
- Main point headings are methodically structured
- Informative easy to read content
- Search engine submission to ALL majors
If you find your search engine optimization strategy to be ineffective, give me a call and let's talk about it. SEO rarely fails for something that was implemented. It always fails when something was not.
Social media is an excellent way to network your site and hook up with users faster. If your product or service is useful then people will share it with everyone they know on Facebook, Twitter of whatever social outlet they use. Social marketing benefits:
- Creates brand awareness
- Reaches more users locally, nationally and globally
- A venue for interacting with users
- I integrate the site with social media accounts
One more marketing tactic we employ is press releases. Utilizing a well orchestrated press release will draw users to your site as soon as it goes public.
In many instances I am asked to take on an existing project that is in need of maintenance. I offer monthly maintenance plans based on your sites needs. In addition, I employ several software applications allowing me to test your sites usability and design while making informed decisions with how to proceed.
- Backup copy of web site
- Site usability testing
- Content review and rewrite
- Monthly SEO updates
- Periodic W3C validation
- Analytic monitoring software
Your web site is an extension to your business. As such, it must be maintained much like any other brick and mortar location. Don't forget this when creating your site and always ask about a maintenance plan. Trends and technologies change constantly and you should always know that your site is being maintained professionally by someone with the skills and credentials to do so.
