At its infancy, many industry specialists thought the internet was a fad that would (like others before it) fade away with time. Time has proven them wrong. Today, a significant part of our lives is highly dependent on the internet, and this will only continue to increase as time goes by.
One of the things that have changed dramatically with the increased global internet penetration and usage is how we do business. Buying and selling of goods and services is no longer constrained to the traditional brick and mortar buildings; it’s now done on devices on people’s desktops and gadgets in their pockets. It is this phenomenal shift to virtual trading that has made it imperative for every business to have an online presence.
The internet has opened up the market for a lot of businesses enabling them to reach a larger consumer base from across the globe. It has drastically cut down advertising costs helping even businesses that are just starting out to reach millions of customers unlike previously where this kind of reach was reserved for deep-pocketed corporations.
However, having an online presence that actually brings in business – contrary to popular belief – is not limited to just having a website for your business. There is a lot that goes into it. Successfully marketing your business online requires a combination of search engine optimisation strategies (simply known as SEO), online marketing and social media marketing.
Online marketing help for businesses
Because of the numerous “moving parts” involved, creating an impactful online presence for a business can be quite difficult for the average entrepreneur; and this is where website optimisation consultants come in.
A website optimisation consultant helps you navigate the murky waters of the internet to make your business as visible as it can be to relevant internet users, your target market.
