  • Module 2: Branding and identity 1
  • Is your website a billboard? 2
  • Is your website updated regularly? 3
  • Is your website useful to your own employees? 4
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.

Using RSS files, you can create a feed that supplies headlines, news, blog posts, comments, forum threads, photos, audio files, and even video to your “subscribers”. • Subscribers can use a dedicated software called an RSS reader or aggregator to “pull in” all their favourite web content into one location and scan quickly. Current browsers come with integrated RSS readers. • Users can also use a web-based aggregator to pull-in feeds that are constantly updated and view a web page of feeds. Eg: Bloglines, Netvibes 31
