Do I really need a website to promote my business?
Um, YEAH, you do! 97% of consumers research local purchases before buying them. If you are not on the internet, you will not be in the running for those sales; don't give the competitions all of your business!
Can a smart phone find my website?
YES! Smart phones can find websites easily; the problem is sometimes YOU can't read the website. Be sure to make a mobile version of your website so that you can be found when a consumer is looking for you on-the-go.
Interesting Fact that I heard last week: There are more smart phones than toothbrushes in the world... YIKES! You need to make your website is "smart phone" friendly - apparently smart phones are not just a trend ...even rough and toothless people are using them!
How do I get people to see my website?
Boost visibility by increasing Search Engine Optimization (SEO), connect to a free Facebook business page, Twitter & LinkedIn accounts, and any other social media tool that you use. Connect with Google Places too, and make sure you have a mobile version of your website.
How come people can't find my website?
So you have a great website, but no visitors?
Have you checked your website settings to make sure you have your keywords listed?
Are you connected to your Facebook business page or other Social Media likeFour Square, Twitter or LinkedIn?
Are you signed up for search sites like Google Places, Yahoo Places, Bing, Manta or other search sites?
Social Media is FREE - take advantage of that - and don't forget to LINK it to your website!
