The most important thing for you to do is make it easy for your customers to find you online. But how do you that? Here are six ways to ensure that your customers, or potential customers, find you and do business with you through the Internet.
- Your Website – People can find your website through a number of ways. They can search for information in your niche or be led to your site by a link in your e-mail correspondence. They might even find your website through paid ads. Whatever it takes, you need to put your brand out there and lead people to your website.
- Your Blog – Add a blog to your website and update it every day, or as often as you can publish valuable content.
- Social Media – Social media websites present a unique opportunity for online marketers. You can promote your blog posts, interact with and engage your audience, and produce valuable content for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, YouTube, and other social media sites then lead them back to your website.
- Review Sites – Sites like Yelp allow your customers to rate your business so that others can see how valuable your service is and want to do business with you too.
- Online Listing Websites – These include Google Places, Bing Local, and YellowPages.com. Some listing sites are more valuable than others, but they all give you another place to connect with potential customers.
- Third-Party Niche Websites – Guest blogging and writing guest articles for other sites within your niche allow you opportunities to reach your target audience where they are already hanging out.
