Building a Business's Digital Presence: A Local Guide

  • 1. Building a Business’s Digital Presence: A Local Guide Presented by: Caitlin Boroden & Jacques Bouchard
  • 2. @DragonSearch Today we will discuss: Your Website Social Media Business Listings
  • 4. @DragonSearch Keywords • Use Google Keyword Planner to learn how people are talking • Reference local towns/cities • Use keywords in content, url's, image file names, metadata, and menus.
  • 6. @DragonSearch Contact Information • Make it easy to tell who you are, what you do, and how to contact you. • Add to every page, in easy-to-find locations • Make sure it's in text format, not images, so Search Engines can read it.
  • 7. @DragonSearch Title Tags and Meta Descriptions Title Tags: 55-56 characters long. Appear in the tab in browsers and in the top line of search Meta Descriptions: 156 characters long. Appears only in search results.
  • 10. @DragonSearch Panda and Your Content • Google Search runs by an algorithm. • ‘Panda’ is part of it, and evaluates quality, length, and duplication. • Make sure your pages have a good amount of quality content. • Don't ‘stuff’ keywords!
  • 11. @DragonSearch When Is ‘Thin’ Content Length OK? Not So GoodAppropriate
  • 12. @DragonSearch Blogging • What will be interesting to your audience? • What do they need to know about your niche? • How can you make your blog about them, and get them involved/participating? • How can your blog mean business? (Follow the 80/20 rule.) • Share your space & write for others!
  • 13. @DragonSearch Calls to Action Examples • Phone Number • Contact Form/Email • E-mail signups • Blog subscriptions • Social media shares/follows • Print/E-mail of page • Trackable Sale Best Practices • Always ask for business • Present multiple paths to conversion • Present logical paths to conversion • ‘Soft’ conversions
  • 15. @DragonSearch Google Analytics • Free to anyone • Easy to set up - especially with WordPress websites • Tracks traffic and user behavior • Can track by traffic type • Can be used to track conversions • We'll have a GA class in the fall
  • 21. @DragonSearch Selecting a Platform • With so many social media platforms out there, choosing one that match your needs and audience can be challenging. • Don’t spread yourself thin. Start small and then move into other platforms as needed. • Choose a platform you enjoy using personally. If you are active on the platform on your own, you are much more likely to be active for your business.
  • 22. @DragonSearch Facebook Cons: • Very little organic reach. You essentially need to pay to play. Pros: • Lots of users! Over 1 billion, in fact. • Users have the ability to engage in multiple ways + comment. • The ability to message and post on company pages gives users a very easy way to connect with you for questions, comments, or concerns. • As a business you have the ability to @-mention other businesses (not individuals) in your posts. • A comprehensive and highly targeted advertising platform (more on that later!).
  • 23. @DragonSearch Twitter Cons: • Very fast pace. Updates fly by and you need to be highly active and agile on this platform to stay connected with news and trending topics. • Users expect quick replies on Twitter. If a user asks a question and you don’t respond in a timely matter, it will be noticed. • Like all platforms, Twitter is very public. If a user has a number of complaints, they are out there for all to see. Pros: • The ability to connect with anyone, anywhere, at any time. • Very easy to share relevant updates, news, images, videos, GIFs, and more. • You have the ability to @-mention other individuals or businesses in your posts.
