Web pages. Lots of us have at least one out there on the internet and most probably the one we neglect or has not been updated since published.
We all use it to communicate life, business, experience and products, right down to how to make a cake. The content we put out there we give in great detail but nine times out of ten the website we choose to present has gigantic gaps where it should have full attention.
So let’s take a delve into your website and see what can be done to overhaul and maximise its potential.
One of the biggest crimes you are going to admit to in your business is admitting to anyone who asks for your web address that your website seriously needs work doing to it. You’ll even ask them not to look at it.
To a potential client or business associate, what is that saying about you?
- Is this person cheap?
- Is this company up to date with products and practices in the field?
- Are they making enough money from this field?
Generally you are admitting you are far away from the industry experts or at novice level even if not the case. First things first is you need your dialogue on the website to reflect the current product, practice or service your business provides.
This may result in articles or blog posts about areas that pertain to your business. These you will need to dedicate time to, as seeing no post activity for months or worse yet, years can give the impression your business is dead in the water.
How slow and sluggish is your webpage for visitors? We don’t live in an age where patience is a virtue so expect too long on loading pages to result in another company receiving the business.
You may need to give a complete overhaul to your security, speed and response time by looking at a more preferable web host service. Sure it may cost you a few extra pounds but at least your website won’t be a turn off when it comes to speed.
Sometimes you have to spend to actually gain.
The chances of finding your website is getting rapidly slimmer due to the neverending expanse of the internet.
So without something to drive people to your website, you are not going to go far. This is where you are going to need to go to market a little; as in marketing. Since the growth of social media networks bringing and connecting people from all over the world, marketing has taken huge strides since the days of a pack of business cards and a poster got you going.
Actively engaging with clients through business adverts, pages and events have really taken business opportunities through the roof and provided much more traffic to websites than ever before. Through Facebook, Linkedin and other avenues businesses have raised awareness of the brand and through options like Search Engine Optimization (SEO) through digital agencies, they have placed much higher in related searches.
