Have you been noticing some website design and content trends substantially changing in the past couple of years? With the exponential growth of different devices accessing the Internet and keeping pace with best SEO practices Ilya Posin with Forbes points out a few that stand out:
You may already know that your website is one of the best, if not the best way to present and represent your business to your audience. There are a lot of first impressions made from scoping out your company’s website for just a few minutes to a new visitor. In order to generate leads and create a good relationship with a potential customer or even returning customers, having a page dedicated to your “story” can build a sense of trust and connectedness. Felicia Spahr, writer for KISSmetrics.com tells us why sharing your company’s personal story is a great marketing tactic for building trust.
In today’s Internet world, there’s an abundance of content out there trying to lure in people to visit their websites and buy their products. Each day, there are roughly two million blog posts, 294 billion emails, and that’s before you take into account social media and other digital interactions. As a result, 80% of readers only read the headline of an article and either skim or skip over the rest.
Trond Lyngbo, column writer for SearchEngineLand.com, a website on all things SEO and Marketing related, writes how much SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and content marketing can enhance your business and web presence.
When doing a website redesign, there’s a lot to consider and there are many people who want to be involved when it does happen. Designers want to talk about building a better user experecen. Developers want to upgrade technology for mobile and tablet Internet use. Your SEO team wants to keep as many of your rankings intact as possible.
It doesn’t help you to say that if you want people to share your blog posts, all you have to do is create exceptional blog posts. It’s that simple, right?
