What Are the Top Things You Can Do to Improve Your Business’ Website?

Do you own a business? If so, you probably also have a website. Consumers rarely leave their homes when they are searching for products and services anymore. Many of them turn straight to the internet, usually Google. If your website doesn’t have domain authority, it won’t appear at the top of the search listings when consumers make searches for keywords relevant to its niche. This post hopes to change that for you, if that is the case, by telling you about the top things you can do to improve your website and boost its DA.

Consider Storybrand

Incorporating Storybrand into your website’s formation can be a highly effective way of making it a more pleasant place for visitors to browse. A Storybrand consultant will help you to begin using the Storybrand strategy, which is essentially helping customers with their problems. Storybrand is also a great way of impressing customers, as they’ll feel like they have a better relationship with you, knowing that you care about their problems. If you are going to try and find a consultant, find one with good reviews and a solid online reputation. A good way to tell if somebody’s reputation is good is to read their reviews. Try to read reviews posted on independent sites rather than ones posted on their websites, as such reviews are usually biased or exaggerated at least.

Creating Content

You won’t be able to turn your website into a success until you start writing and releasing content. Content can have a huge impact on a website’s success. Unfortunately, many business owners are completely ignorant of this. The production of content isn’t an easy thing to manage though. If it’s something that interests you, you need to make sure that you hire the most qualified, experienced content writer that you can. As noted in the previous section, reviews are a good way to decide whether or not a content writer is worth hiring. In addition to reading a content writer’s reviews, you should also take the time to check their portfolio out. Until you have seen a content writer’s portfolio it is unwise to do any business with them. A content writer’s portfolio should be publicly available on their website. If it is not, ask them privately for it.

SEO Marketing

SEO was referenced in this post’s introduction. It is one of the web’s most popular and effective forms of marketing and involves manipulating the algorithms of search engines in order to increase a website’s ranking on search engine results pages. Unfortunately, as a discipline SEO is extremely difficult to learn. If you run a business, it’s unlikely you will be able to find the time to run an SEO effort whilst simultaneously managing a business.  You do not have to worry about managing your own SEO efforts, however, as you can hire somebody to do all of the work for you. There are an almost unlimited number of SEO consultants and professionals operating on the Internet today. If you plan on hiring one, make sure that you hire one that offers their services at a reasonable price. Because of how much choice you have relative to SEO professionals, you need to make sure that you find one offering their services for a price you can actually afford. The vast majority of SEO professionals also offer payment plans, allowing customers to pay for their support over a period of months, rather than having to pay for everything all at once.

Social Media Presence

You need to try and get as much traffic to your website as you possibly can. One of the most effective ways of doing this is by creating a social media page. A social media page gives you the opportunity to advertise your business to millions of people, all at once. One of the best platforms to set yourself up on is Instagram. Facebook is an equally popular platform, though it’s not as good for selling things. The latter tends to be frequented by older people, while the former is younger. As Instagram has a lot more younger people using it, it’s easier to make sales. The only time that you should prioritize a Facebook page for your business over an Instagram one is if your business is a localized, brick-and-mortar one or if your target audience is people who are over the age of 40. Instagram can still be good for businesses like those just described, though.

Posting Pictures

On your website, you need to make sure that you post regular pictures.  Posting pictures on your website is an effective way of making it more interactive and interesting. Lots of people make the mistake of using images that are copyrighted. For your site, unless you are using original images, make sure you use royalty-free ones. There are an almost endless number of websites offering royalty-free images on the Internet. Before putting an image on your website, make sure that you verify it is royalty-free. One of the biggest Internet distributors of royalty-free images is Unsplash. Another affordable option is a subsidiary of Vistaprint, depositphotos. If you are caught using copyrighted images without the photographer’s permission, you could end up in a lot of trouble. Internet law is in its infancy but it is starting to be taken a lot more seriously by lawyers and businesses today.

Optimizing Content

Finally, make sure that when you post content on your site that it is optimized. Optimized content is not hard to produce if you know what you are doing. There are lots of guides available online that teach people how they can optimize their content. Make sure that if you are going to start optimizing content you consult the content writer you’ve hired (if you have hired one). If you do not tell them you want content optimized, they are not going to be able to write it in such a way that it is easier for it to be done.

Do you have a website? If yes, now’s the time to think about improving it. Your business’s website is something you definitely need to upgrade. Upgrading it can have a positive impact on your business, its performance, and the number of sales it makes.
