I am a senior internet marketing consultant here in Philadelphia. I’ve had many local businesses ask me what they need to do so their business shows up well on Google, Yahoo & Bing. I put together some information to help local businesses get a head start on marketing their website online.
Now that your website is updated the key is to get people on your website. I’m sure you heard someone in Philadelphia say “Without marketing your website its like putting up a billboard in the desert.” Here are several questions you need ask yourself to improve your rankings on Google and get more traffic to your website. If you are a small business in Philadelphia this is free internet advertising it just takes time.
I read this article today and it reminded me of my previous posts helping Philadelphia business owners get more sales leads. This article by Gareth Owen sums up some of the exact same things I have been preaching to local Philadelphia Business owners. I recently helped a salon owner optimize his web pages and they have seen 3 times the new customer leads over this same period last year. THATS HUGE!!
I understand why there a need for Mobile websites, primarily its the simplicity in click to call or generate a lead. However, in the past the internet was very slow and so it took a long time for a website to load up on your mobile device. Also many websites were not formatted to be easily read on mobile devices. However, other than the click to call, I no longer find this to be the case. With 4G & Wireless hotspots there are many ways to get a fast signal so full websites can load up on mobile devices.
In the past when you searched “Website Design Philadelphia” you could easily find a company that can build you a website but is it a SMART Website?
