There is only one thing that matters online. It's a simple formula - WEBSITE TRAFFIC + CONVERSIONS = SALES. You need lots of people visiting your site, people looking for your type of product or service and then you need your website set up in such a way that it "converts" well. In other words, once people land on your site you have only a few seconds to gain their attention and get them to...
Marketing your business online is absolutely vital if you want to progress and get in front of as many potential customers as you can. Many businesses unfortunately throw up a website and maybe a Facebook Page and think that their work is done but this should be just the start. You need to tick all the boxes and make sure everything is aligned in order to really promote your business online. Let me explain----
So you have your website up and running let`s assume, but your website strangely is not getting any hits/traffic/visitors or at least only a trickle, so what do you do? Firstly you need to ensure you have verified the website with Google and you can do this by using Google Webmaster Tools. By doing this you know that Google have now identified and will hopefully take notice of you and start showing you in Google...

The most powerful way to stay ahead of the game and keep on top of all your rivals in business is to dominate them online. A strong online profile using all the elements that will give you a powerful presence will do wonders for your bottom line in the short term, medium term and long term. Because so many local businesses do not use the power of the internet to its full potential it is often quite simple to steal a march on your competitors.
Here are a few pointers as to how you can deliver a strong online presence for your business:
First and foremost make sure you have a website that promotes your business in the right way, you want to be showing your website visitors what you can do for them and then leading them into taking action. Your website should be using all your relevant keywords and it MUST be mobile responsive otherwise you are wasting your...
As April 21st has now passed and Google are rolling out their latest update, if you have not yet got a mobile responsive website you will soon see a dramatic fall in the rankings in the Google search engine for all your keyword terms. As so many people now search for the goods and services they require online through Google this could cause your business a great deal of damage.
But all is not lost yet. If you act fast to ensure you have a mobile friendly website as soon as possible you will hopefully not suffer a fall in your websites status. We can help you with this if you wish, if you are unsure whether your website is mobile responsive and passes the Google test we can check this for you and if it is not we can supply you with a mobile...
Google have announced they are bringing in another of their updates on April 21st and this update is specifically aimed at penalising any website which is not mobile responsive (sometimes called mobile friendly or mobile rendered). So it is absolutely essential if you are a website owner that you ensure your website is mobile responsive by this date, otherwise you may see your website quickly slide down the search engine rankings for all your major keyword terms, meaning that you will lose traffic, and potential customers if you have a business.
Mobile is now becoming an important part of any businesses promotional strategy and it is obvious to see why when you look at the figures. It is believed that as many people search for goods and services both locally and nationally on their smartphones or tablets as they do on a traditional desktop such as a computer or laptop. So to have a website that either does not scan correctly on a smartphone, or has...
As promised in an earlier post here is advice on how you can use Facebook to help promote your business. FB can be a great marketing tool if you make the effort to apply it correctly to your company.
Firstly you need to create a Facebook Page, this is not the same as your Facebook account but a Page which you can devote entirely to your business. It is very easy to create a Page for your business, you need to make the URL of the Page relevant to the business as this is what the Page will be identified by.
You have the opportunity to upload a profile photo and a large...

A new campaign group in Northern Ireland, Urban Exchange NI (UENI), have called for retailers and planners to collaborate in a bid to save the High Street from extinction.
The UENI are a group of regenerative experts who want to get as many people around the table as they can to generate fresh ideas on how to improve the towns and cities across Northern Ireland. They believe that the present system of town hall planning is plainly not working and is holding back development by being too unwieldy and not taking into account the wishes of the retailers.
They want as many experts as possible...
Prime Minister has talked positively about the economic recovery in Northern Ireland, claiming that it is well on course and going exactly to plan.

The economic package included in it the promise of £100 million from the Treasury coffers if required to kickstart growth in areas where it was required, and it has now been announced where...

Engage is the word as you do not really want to be selling directly on the Social Media channels, but what you do want...
There are increasingly strong signs that Northern Ireland is breaking free from recession with many sectors set for economic growth in the next 12 months.
The legal profession is one area that looks particularly strong at present and into the next year, although there are still areas of concern such as the public sector, as the Government continues to try to save money by cutting the public purse as much as they possibly can, forcing local councils to penny pinch and save money right across the board. It is believed the public sector could shed as many as 2,500 jobs...
