Promoting your business online in 2021

Posted on Updated on

We are happy to announce a new series of promoting your business online. It will include useful tips to help for running a successful online advertisement campaign in 2021. We believe especially small business owners will find valuable information in our series, even if you have only a small advertisement budget available. Today we like to outline the content you can expect in the following weeks.

Before we get started a short Disclaimer. There is no “fits all solution” when promoting or running a business. Also every investment comes with a risk. The advise in our upcoming series about promoting your business online in 2021 is primarily aiming to help online shop owners to increase their traffic during the holiday season. However, not every online shop is the same and our strategy might not fit your situation. We therefore can not guarantee any success when following our advise, even if we believe many will benefit from our blogpost series and able to run a successful campaign. With this out of the way let us give you an outline of the upcoming content.

For consistency we have planed to published each post on Wednesdays, starting next week. The first post will be about Keywords and Keyword research. We will give you some advise how you can categorize your keywords to have an easier time to implement them into your online strategy. The week after will be about target audience and platforms you might want to consider for the upcoming holiday season. The next two posts will be about calculating and distributing your online advertisement budget for all the platforms you might want to include into your overall strategy.

When you have followed our posts in August, you should feel prepared for September. We will continue updating you during the season with tips what to look out for, how to make adjustments, what details to analyze and even how to use the data gathered to improve your campaign in the future.

If you are a small business owner, who is located in Canada or the US, and you would like to get some feedback about your planed strategy in 2021. We offer free initial consultations where we analyze your situation and give you more tailored feedback and advise. 

Hopefully you will find our tips useful and consider our services for this season our in the future.

Promoting your business online: Website

Posted on Updated on

WWW-Promo-IconIn our opinion the first step to promote your business online should be a website. A website is like your store, but in the World Wide Web. You can showcase your products and services, can have contact details available and depending on the nature of your business maybe even a shopping cart system in place. There are a few questions you should ask yourself before getting started.

1st Question: Your Budget
The first question you should asked yourself is how much money you have available for your website project. Your available budget will help you answering the next questions.

2nd Question: Platform, Host, Domain Name
Depending on the product or service you have to offer you may want to go with a WordPress Blog, a Joomla website or maybe an online store build with Magento. There are many other platforms to choose from and some are more suited for your business than others. If you are not sure which one to choose you can contact us for a free consultation. Some platforms require to be setup proper so you should check which website host is offering them. Last but not least you will have to get a domain name preferable something that is also the name of your company. Depending on the Host and the kind of domain name the cost can vary and the cheapest you can get is under $10 per month.

3rd Question: Developer
You may feel comfortable to build your first site by yourself but maybe you need professional help. Picking the right developer is an important step. Consider how much money it will cost to build the site by yourself and compare that with the costs of a professional developer. We have created a tool to give you an idea how much a website can cost. The calculator is designed to give you a general idea, prizes can vary a lot and also depend very much on the project. But we hope it will give you at least an idea. So please feel free to follow this link. We suggest to “shop around” a bit to see if you can find a developer that fits your needs, budget and can earn your trust. Trust is a very important factor when picking a developer. We suggest not to go with the fist guy, check out other options and find the one that is the right fit for your project.

After you have asked yourself those 3 questions you can go to the next step which is building the website. You may have seen many one page websites and those are often a great way to get started. But keep in mind a good website is changing, a successful website is growing and you should always try to add new content. Think of your website like a real store where you change the decoration depending on the season or add new products to your shelfs. With the right platform you will be able to create new content easily and if you have the right developer on your site it won’t be a problem to keep your website fresh and interesting for your visitors.

You also want to consider Online Marketing options such as Online Advertisement and Social Media to increase the traffic to your site. We can help you with every single step and even if you decide to go ahead and try it on your own first, it might be a good idea to have the knowledge that a professional have pointed you into the right direction.
