  2. 2. Why is it so important for you to go online? If you are not online yet, check your competitors; they probably are. The reason is that companies need to focus on using websites and search engines to market themselves. Your clients are becoming more media and technology savvy. They are used to having any information they want at their fingertips. When they are searching for services you provide, the Internet will be the first place they will look. www.businessvibes.com
  3. 3. 5 Benefits of Being Online 1. Instant access to information on your company and products/services for your clients is important in an increasingly fast-paced world. You should be able to provide information to clients even if they are busy and on the go. 2. Return on investment from activities conducted online is much higher than from printed adverts or TV commercials. An online presence allows you to easily reach a larger number of customers worldwide and gives you the possibility to see results almost immediately. www.businessvibes.com

This is the most important benefit of online marketing because knowing that your market competitors are not using an online platform allows you to out-sell and out- perform them. Online marketing also gives you the opportunity to compete with big names in your field more efficiently and cost- effectively. www.businessvibes.com
  6. 6. Search Engine Optimization What is it all about? • With the huge amount of information that can be easily added to Internet resources you need to be as high in Google search results as possible. Getting there requires Search Engine Optimization (SEO). • Simply put, it is a process where, using certain techniques, you are able to move your site above others on the natural, non-paid listings across major Search Engines. • The goal: to improve the visibility of the website by being seen more frequently by more Internet users browsing the web. www.businessvibes.com
  7. 7. Search Engine Optimization Design of the Website • Website design matters for Search Engine Optimization. The most important factor about design is that everything you have online should be relevant to what you run in real life. Do not include extraneous information such as hobbies, family and friends. Stay focus on what your business has to offer. Try to adjust colours and graphics on the website to your industry. • Stay simple, making main information as clear as possible. The more a user needs to search for information, the quicker they will leave your website – resulting in lower online traffic, and a lower SEO. • Keep videos, pictures and animations to a minimal. From a technical point of view, the less videos, pictures and animations you have on the website, the easier it is to classify it and the higher it is in Google search results. www.businessvibes.com
  8. 8. Search Engine Optimization Keywords • Keywords are essentially words describing your company, products and services you provide. For example, if you are a Real Estate Agency and users wish to find your company on the Internet, they would most likely search words like: rooms for rent, apartments for rent, room to let, rooms for students, etc. • Try searching for approximately 20 keywords that describe your business, product and services. Think about them from the users’ point of view and determine which words they would most likely use to find your company and what you have to offer. • Use these as frequently as possible on your website, like in descriptions of your products and/or services. There is also a possibility of including those keywords in meta tags (meta description, meta tags and meta keywords to your website) which assist Google in finding out what your business is actually about and place you in a higher rank in search results for those particular keywords and categories. www.businessvibes.com
  9. 9. Search Engine Optimization Company Blog More people are creating their own blogs and posting about their interests, hobbies and/or passions. Many companies that have noticed the benefits of blogs have also begun creating blogs and posting about things related to their business. There are couple of reasons for that. • It is a great place to use keywords and take your website higher and higher in Google search results. • Selling alone will not work because people are tired of being constantly urged to purchase from a myriad of companies. A blog, when well written, is a value itself for customers. • When you write blog posts, you can write about anything related to either your company or the industry you are working in as long as your customers find it ORIGINAL. It must catch their attention and interest them. www.businessvibes.com
  10. 10. Search Engine Optimization Link Exchanges • Link building is one of the most important and difficult things in search engine optimization. The reason why it is so hard is that not every link will help you build your position on the Internet. • First of all try to get links from the websites and partners that operate in industry similar to yours. It will give Google an even clearer picture on what your company is about and will link your website tighter to the keywords you chose. • If you are provided with the option to link to spam websites, DON’T! If the link to your company website is surrounded by spam or vulnerable links, it could reflect negatively on your website because you might be associated with that kind activity. www.businessvibes.com
  11. 11. Search Engine Optimization 3 Ways to Build Links 1. One way linking – when a partner company places a link to your website and you do not need reciprocate by placing link to their website on yours. 2. Two way linking (link exchange) – when a company places a link to your website and you have to link to that website on yours as well. 3. Internal linking – you link to your website from other domains owned by you. www.businessvibes.com
  12. 12. Social media • With the rise of social media, your company now has a greater chance of exposure. By creating social media accounts for your company on platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, you now give people another channel to use to communicate with you and discover your business. BusinessVibes will help you create your business network. You can search for business partners, suppliers and clients, connect with them and start conversation about future deals and agreements. You can also promote your events there. Use Facebook to create a fan page and include all sorts of information related to your company and products/services. Share the news with your clients, share newest blog posts and check how they react towards your product and company. Twitter gives you the possibility to express your comments, updates and news in 140 characters. Listen to what your audience is saying about you and your competitors and you can react on that immediately. Pinterest allows you to present your company by pinning colourful picture on your wall. Targeted audience are mostly women as they are 60% of users of the platform. www.businessvibes.com
  13. 13. Search Engine Marketing Unlike SEO which helps your website rank higher on Google for free, SEM, which stands for Search Engine Marketing is a form of Internet marketing that requires financial investments in advertising to be shown at the very top of sponsored Google results or in other sponsored results on the Internet. An Example of Paid Advertising on Google. www.businessvibes.com
  14. 14. Search Engine Marketing Google AdWords • Google AdWords offers a user friendly interface allowing you to targeting potential clients since Google is the world’s largest search engine. • All you need to do is create your account on Google Adwords, then invent your ad and implement keywords that you have already thought about for SEO. • You can use plain text ads or even get a little creative and use animations, videos and images to create your perfect and striking online advertisement. The only requirement is that you have a website for your company. • The way you pay for ad is based on CPC/PPC formula (cost per click/pay per click). When someone clicks on your sponsored ad, you will pay for that. If they don’t click you don’t need to pay. • To bring yourself better conversion rate and return on investment link your ad to a landing page that can give you maximum number of conversions. Always pay attention to cost you have and compare it with historical results. www.businessvibes.com
  15. 15. Search Engine Marketing Social Media AdWords • Social media platforms have introduced their own sponsored ads. In case of Facebook it acts really similar to Google Ads with this difference that Facebook ads are displayed only within this platform, they are not visible in Google results. • Unlike Google Adwords, Facebook users are not actively searching for your product or service. But by using Facebook’s demographics and location data you are really able to really focus on our target audience. You may choose to have your ad displayed in specific location, target audience, not to anyone who use specific keyword as it is in Adwords. You may end up with really small target group, but believe me you might be surprised with conversion rate, especially comparing to your costs. • Twitter has recently introduced promoted tweets, trends and accounts. Taking into consideration the number of tweets being tweeted every day it might be a good idea to have them promoted, but for sure Twitter ads are not as powerful as Facebook or Google Adwords. www.businessvibes.com
