    1. 1. Module 2: Branding and identity 1
    2. 2. Is your website a billboard? 2
    3. 3. Is your website updated regularly? 3
    4. 4. Is your website useful to your own employees? 4
    5. 5. I don’t know who you are. I don’t know your company. I don’t know your company’s product. I don’t know what your company stands for. I don’t know your company’s customers. I don’t know your company’s record. I don’t know your company’s reputation. Now – what was it you wanted to sell me? Moral: Sales start before your salesman calls… 5
    6. 6. Google Quotient • Findability: Can your brand name, product or service be found easily? • Linkability: Are you linking out and being linked by others? • Relevance: Are the search results relevant to your potential customers? • Differentiation: Are the generic searches for your product or service rated higher than your competitor’s? 6
    7. 7. Search engine results are key • 68% click a search result in the 1st page of results • 92% will go up to (at most) 3rd page before changing query (half will switch after 1st page) • 39% believe that the companies whose websites are in top search results are the leaders in their field. Key lesson: If you're not ranking well for your desired search terms, brand names and other important key words and phrases, you're missing out on significant, highly qualified traffic.
