Building your website is only the first step… Then you’ve got to get people to visit it! As the world wide web continues to grow to astronomical size, getting visitors to your website keeps getting harder and harder. Blue’s ArtHouse can help you get some of that elusive internet traffic to your website.
Where’s the traffic?! Nobody visiting your website?
Years ago, marketing your website on the internet was a fairly simple process. Getting your site listed in the search engines like Google was always free and all it took was a few coding tricks to achieve high rankings. Things have changed…
The search engines have grown up. And unfortunately that means that now the internet has become like the rest of the business world… it takes money to be in the game. These days you MUST spend some cash in order to get significant traffic to your website. The goal, of course, is to get the biggest bang for your buck. There are some effective ways and LOTS of extremely INEFFECTIVE ways to spend your dollars on internet marketing. Here’s a little info to help you determine HOW and WHERE to invest in internet marketing in order to get the most return.
The scoop on Google…
There’s only ONE major search engine to worry about right now and that’s Google. That may and probably will change in the future, but right now if you want to get people to your website, the quickest way to do it is with Google. Google has such an overwhelming monopoly over internet search that it is a waste of your time and money to work with any other search engines.
And the ONLY way to guarantee good results in Google is GOOGLE ADWORDS. You can set up a Google Adwords account yourself or let Blue’s ArtHouse do it for you. Please give us a call to discuss rates for this service.
If you already know a little bit about search engines, you might be thinking, can’t I just search engine optimize* my website and get good rankings in Google?
Your website SHOULD be optimized for the search engines. Your site WILL get better rankings than if it is not optimized. BUT that still doesn’t guarantee GOOD rankings in the Search Engines.
Blue’s ArtHouse search engine optimizes every page of every website we create with relevant keyword filled page titles, content and meta tags. We also can search engine optimize websites that we didn’t build if that’s what your website needs. But unless your website subject matter is an extraordinary niche market, you’ll need more than just search engine optimization to get much website traffic.
Other internet marketing services we offer include email blasts, banner campaigns, affiliate programs, increasing link popularity, and much more. But the most important service we offer is marketing consultation. There is no one-size-fits-all marketing plan. Every customer requires a unique marketing plan to get the best return for their marketing dollars. We’ll start off by analyzing your website and discussing your goals with you. Then we’ll put together our recommended marketing plan for your individual situation.
And best of all, our phone consultation is FREE. So give us a call (314-839-0634) or email us and we’ll discuss your project and get you some of that TRAFFIC!
*If you’re thinking, ‘What the heck is “search engine optimization?”‘ you are not alone! Here’s a quick and simple explanation. Search engine optimization (SEO) usually involves adding keywords about your business to the code and text of your website pages. Search engines index the pages of your website and your website then shows up in searches where people use the keywords that you’ve added to your code and page content.
