” Kiss today good bye, and point me towards tomorrow, wish me luck , the same to you.” 2016 was a heck of a year, and some days I wasn’t sure I was going to make it through, but here I am. Business wise, I think we had our best year ever, since we started in the Website and Social media arena. WE have talked and talked and shown people the stats, and for years they said, yeah, I need to get a website, and they didn’t. But last year they did!
This year is starting off a little slower, but not by much. If you have an old, tried looking website, it’s time. Replace it. If it’s not mobile enhanced then it’s probably not even being indexed by Google. Whether you choose to build a new website, replace an old website, understand this, although you might not be ready, there is a good chance your competitor us. Businesses are jumping on the website bandwagon. And why not? Creating and growing your network is an important way to establish your business and to stand out from the crowd. Not to mention it’s a killer way to get your name out there. Since the core of your online presence is your website, this is your chance to charm all those potential customers.
There are offers saying you can build your own website, so why do you need us? Well, ther are YouTube videos that show you how to do all kinds of things yourself. But if you only know the basics, and you don’t understand the little, specialized things we do as professionals to get your site to show up on Google, then you can build it, but they won’t come. Delegate this particular task to social-cindy. The old saying, “When you want something done right, do it yourself” does not apply here. Ask yourself the following question instead: “Is this something I have the skills to do or should I hire a professional?”
Be social! Whether we like it or not social media is a huge part of our daily routine. Without thinking, we check our Facebook, Tweet and Retweet without hesitation. With more than 1.71 billion monthly active users only on Facebook, it’s a no-brainer that every business owner should invest some time and effort in these platforms. Need a helping hand? That’s what we are here for. Also, what you may not know is the major search engines don’t consider you a real, bonafide web presence unless you have a blog and social media.
Write a blog ! Writing a blog has heaps of benefits like positioning yourself as a thought leader, and your brand as an influencer in your field and boosting your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) mojo for your website. In fact, unless you have thousands of dollars to spend on SEO each month, regular blog posts can far outweigh the benefits of most SEO programs.
Let’s start this year off right. Social Cindy provides website design, SEO, online marketing, and social media management services to business owners all over the US. We would love to help a state of the art web presence for your business, no matter where in the US you are located.
