  • Overall, the findings suggest there is arguably a ‘blank canvas’ for adaptive, fast-moving business developmentprofessionals and marketers to use social media to gain a competitive advantage. As Generation Y enters theworkforce, these new professionals will be more at home with integrating social technologies into their professionallives. Returns on investment (ROI) will be conferred upon those practices that have the foresight to recognise this.The behavior of marketplace as a whole is changing, even in the legal profession. Social is fast becoming the default first stop for answering questions and gaining information, for professionals.We Google things, try self diagnosis before doctor visits on WebMD, we research pricing and product features, and we will go to find answers from legal SMEs on the web before seeking out a practitioner or legal ERP system. No vertical is left untouched.
  • wHybuIld A keywoRdstRAtegy? More and more customerss are finding businesses online through keyword K search. you can take advantage of this habit by optimizing yourwebsite and social media profiles around the keywords that arerelevant toyour business and that consumers are using to find you online.
  • As a business professional, you should make sure the right people are finding your business online. In this section, you will learn how to define which keywords will maximize your potential to draw in relevant traffic from search engines. keyword research is an ongoing process that should be followed closely. It gives valuable insight on industry trends and product demand. com- prehensive keyword research can help you grow your organic traffic and save you from spending money on pay-per-click (ppc) campaigns such as googleAdwords.
  • Html is the back-end code of your website that search engines read. search engines extract rel- evant information, such as keywords, from your Html. css, on the other hand, holds a template for the layout of your page. In the CSS, you define how headings, links, and other visual elements of the text should look. the takeaway here is simple: use css. putting layout-related information in your Html can dilute the relevance of the Html text, which is what you want search engines to read. search engine rankings favor sites that are registered for a long period of time. long domain reg- istrations indicate a commitment to the site, a signal that the site has a lower chance of being spam. extend your website registration for $10-20 a year for an seo boost. moz Rank is a general measure of how much online authority your site has. A higher moz rank is better. Note that moz Rank factors in both on-page and off-page seo. Improving your on-page seo may help improve your rank, but there is much more you can do to improve it. don’t worry, we will get to all this. when google crawls your site, it updates the information related to it, such as your keywords and other seo factors. therefore, you want google to crawl your site as often as possible. the best thing you can do to make google crawl your site more frequently is to regularly produce fresh content and publish it on your website. he uRl of a web page is its web address. for example, Hubspot’s blog has a uRl of http:// blog.hubspot.com. the uRl structure of a website is about how the different uRls connect with each other. Unfortunately, improving your URL structure is one of the more difficult aspects of on-page web- site optimization. The methods of fixing these issues depend entirely on the back-end parts of your website, such as your content management system or programming framework. Neverthe- less, if you have a competent developer by your side, having him or her tackle these issues can significantly improve your SEO.
  • with indications that mobile bandwidth cost may be on the rise, it is important for marketers to develop lightweight ways to engage mobile users. don’t ask a user to stream a ten-minute video. Instead, provide a clean text summary of the video if they are using a cellular data connection. give them an opportunity to watch the video if they are on a wifi connection, in an effort to help them conserve mobile bandwidth. Now that you have all the right internet marketing strategies in place, it’s time to make all of them as efficient as they can be. Your main goal in this next step is to find the best way to use all the techniques we’ve already discussed to get found online and generate new customers.
