Five Simple Steps To Building Your Company’s Online Presence


There is no denying that the world is now more digital than it ever was and it will only continue to become more so. That means having a significant online presence for your business is no longer a luxury. It is a necessity.

What Are The Benefits Of An Online Presence For A Business?

In many ways, an online presence has a lot of benefits over just being on social media or running ads on Google. I have already given you some reasons why it is beneficial for your company now. But here are some others that will make your business’s online presence much easier.

Social media may very well be the best platform to build brand awareness because everyone is connected. And to tell people about what you do is important in making them aware of what you do. With over one billion adults online, there is never going to be a shortage of potential customers. So if you want to stay in the top spot when they search for information related to your products and services, you need to have as much information as possible. When someone searches for a particular term like “petsitting on my sofa” or something similar (even though we don’t call them pets anymore), most people will look at multiple websites, all with different variations of keywords. Not just from those that are closest to you, but also from other companies who may even provide the same product. This is going to be a crucial part of any SEO strategy when trying to rank on Google. So if you want to find out what keywords your competitors are targeting, or ask yourself what questions they can answer. You might stumble across several pages of content from people who target this exact keyword and learn how they do what they do. You can then try to get into their website and see how much time goes into each page, which keywords they are focusing their efforts on, etc. Asking these questions before you start writing anything will help you better focus your marketing efforts.

Another key point that I always mention is having lots of videos on your YouTube channel. If you can find something that people are interested in, do it! No matter where your video is coming from, whether that is your own personal experience to share with your audience, a client who wants to know more about the product you sold at a trade show, or simply want to watch you play soccer, do something! Video is great if you don’t care about things happening behind the scenes. Be sure to include videos that give back value to viewers. People are more likely to interact with a business when they feel they are getting value out of it.

Another way you can optimize your work that would really drive traffic to your site would be by using Facebook ad words. These are probably not as effective as Google, and it takes a while longer to increase sales. However, with everything we have been discussing up until now, it is definitely worth it.

Social Media Platforms

Social media platforms are a great opportunity for your advertising because anyone can post anything on there. And by posting something about you is giving away your business, especially for those of us on our phones. Don’t underestimate the power of Instagram and Pinterest when posting on them. Creating posts on these two will create more engagement with your followers, ultimately creating more sales for your products/services. You can also encourage people within your community to follow your content. Having regular conversations with your users also helps. By reaching out to your fans on these social networks, you are able to promote your future products through word-of-mouth campaigns.

As mentioned earlier, it is important to have a strong email address. With that done, you have access to a number of tools that you can use to build a list of subscribers. Again, keep in mind that building an email list through email is very easy and doesn’t take much time!

Finally, remember that you are not a separate entity from Social Media if you are still active on one of those sites. All of these platforms are working together and, therefore, you should stay consistent and maintain a positive attitude towards all of them. That will allow you to remain authentic and not appear fake or fake. A positive outlook will set you apart from the crowd.

When looking online, you are always going to want to think if any steps could improve your presence. Like I did, you need always try to optimize your work so that when readers find it, instead of searching and finding nothing from your site, they can easily find your info. Another reason is that your business doesn’t have to appear empty. Everything is there. You just need to be prepared and have a plan.
