Thanksgiving has taken on a whole new meaning this year in the wake of the recent wildfire storm in Southern California. We are thankful for all those that got us through it and those that will continue to help any and all that need it. 
Are You Getting The Most Out Of Your Web Site?

If you build it, they will come.

     A catchy marketing phrase? Maybe, but not when it comes to the Internet.  Businesses know they need an Internet presence. They don't want to run the risk of being seen as out of touch by their customers and clients. They know that their future customers do their homework on the 'net' before they decide where to spend their hard-earned dollars.

     So the smart business does the smart thing. They build a web site and then they wait for the money to start rolling in. Then they stop being smart. They wait and then wait some more.

      "Where is everybody? Why don't they know how wonderful my service or product is? I told them on my great new web site!"  But did they tell their customers they even had a web site? Probably not.

     As a business owner, you did the right thing by putting your business on the Web. You did all the right things with the designers: visually appealing design, intuitive and consistent navigation on every page, and most importantly, the content your customers need to make an informed decision to do business with you. But you're not done yet. You have the best access to your target market so tell them about your web site.

    "Well, how do I do that? I can't email the planet to tell them about my web site. That's called SPAM isn't it?" Yes it is and it's not a nice way to get people's attention. Don't despair. Your main objective is to get your url ( in front of your market so they'll type it into their computers.  There's plenty of ways to do that and most of it is not that expensive.

     You can start with just slight modifications to your current marketing, learn how to use your email more effectively, get your web site listed on other web sites, and of course, the least expensive of all, word of mouth.

     These are only a few ways to get your message out to people. By building a web site, you've invested in one of the most cost-effective marketing tools you can have these days. You're open 24/7! If you tell them, they will come.

It's time to get the most out of your web site. Don't add this task to your New Year's Resolution list. Get started today! Every day that you wait is costing you money. To set up a consultation, click here to email us.
