Want the right people to find your small business website?
Tired of your out-of-date website that isn’t bringing you clients?
Maybe you have tried to do it yourself or maybe you have hired someone to help you, but it didn’t work out. Why is that? Because it is a lot to learn yourself & sadly, many people you might hire either don’t know what they need to know or aren’t focused on getting you results.
And what do we mean by getting results from your website? It depends on your business model of course, for you, it is probably some combination of . . .
- More traffic
- Higher rankings in search engine results
- More leads & clients
- Grow your list
- More engagement
- Good feedback from clients about your website
- More downloads of your report
- More views of your video
There are several problems you are probably facing here:
- It is hard enough to create new content & then you have to optimize it for search engines?! What to do? Who has the time?
- And then you have to share via social media & newsletter. This can feel overwhelming & takes time away from your genius work.
- Especially if local clients are important to your business, you need accurate information to display across many directories & you want to rank well in local search. And this is cumbersome to do yourself.
- There are a lot of updates to WordPress, themes & plugins & you want these for new features & the best security possible. But sometimes the different pieces aren’t compatible. And you probably don’t have the time or know-how to test & fix it.
- People are attacking your website all the time. Really, it is shocking when you look at the logs & see what is going on! Even for smaller websites & people who aren’t even famous yet.
- It could be from software updates or attacks on your website, or sometimes when it comes to technology, things just go wonky.
- A fast website is important for Google & clients. But knowing what to do & doing it can be tricky for small biz owners. And things are always changing with new content & updated software so you have to keep tweaking it.
- Metrics can be confusing & cumbersome to check in various places. And then how do you translate that to the changes you should make on your website to get better results & reach your goals?
And here is what we need to do about those problems:
- You want to know you have done what is reasonable to play nicely with Google without having to learn it & do it yourself.
- You want to delegate your social media & newsletter so that you can focus on your genius work.
- If local clients are important to you, you want someone to update & monitor the relevant directories.
- You want updates done promptly & with minimal risk. You want any problems fixed quickly.
- You need a solid security strategy to make it harder for the bad guys & make you safer.
- You need a good backup strategy. If you think, “Oh my host does backups, so I am covered.” You are probably in for an unpleasant surprise.
- You need someone to check on speed & optimize your website each month.
- You need someone to gather the metrics, analyze the situation & make logical improvements to reach your goals.
As you might be noticing, there are two things at play here to get you the results you want: SEO (Search Engine Optimization) & website maintenance. And they can be rather intertwined. The important part is that your website needs monthly tending in order to accomplish your goals! From what I have seen, this is the stuff that small biz owners tend to neglect & have a lack of confidence about.
But don’t despair! You want a small business website that helps to grow your business & I can help! Won’t it feel great having more confidence & peace of mind as more people find you & you connect with them better? And here is how we get there . . .
