If you’re a local business owner, you need to be aware of these facts so that you can make it easier for potential customers to find your business. And, this is where P3 Marketing Columbia SC can help you!
How Are Your Customers Finding Your Business Right Now?
Do they find your business by looking in the Yellow Pages? Or, do they find you through advertising on the newspaper, radio, or TV? These are all expensive ways to attract new customers.
If a customer doesn’t know about your company and can’t find you quickly, they will likely do business with one of your competitors. This potential customer is probably lost forever!
More and more potential customers are searching online to find a local business to furnish them what they need. And, if your company’s website is not on Google’s first page, they probably won’t choose your business to service their needs.
Getting Your Company’s Website On Google’s Page 1
Most businesses create or have someone else create a website for them and they think it will wondrously appear on the first page of Google, Bing, or Yahoo. That’s wrong…DEAD WRONG!
Many businesses hire a web design team who build them pretty looking websites, but what good is that if that website never makes it to the first page of the search engines? Search engines don’t care if a website is pretty or not…they look for a lot of other factors. Factors that most web design teams know nothing about. They will take your money and not tell you that.
Now, there is nothing wrong with having a professional looking website, but getting that website ranked high on the search engines requires the knowledge of search engine optimization (SEO). SEO is the process of improving a website’s search engine rankings by implementing techniques that promote your website to the search engines ranking algorithm. It’s part technology and part art.
That’s what we here at P3 Marketing Columbia SC are expertly trained to do. We use this knowledge to help you find more customers online!
