While business owners are often very passionate about their business and have a lot of great ideas they would like to implement on the company website, it is best to try and start slow and keep things simple in the beginning. This goes for everything from design to functionality. Images need to be good for marketing which means simple and able to convey a direct message, but they also need to be small enough to load quickly on a website across all varying types and speeds of connections. Getting a website up and running with contact information is more important than getting a full catalog of products or an enhanced blog up and running right off the bat. Take things slow. Build the site over time and allow it to prove its value, providing funding to develop the site further.
Another important aspect that many local business owners may overlook when first implementing their online marketing campaigns is the power of cross-linking. It is a good practice to set up social media profiles, business directory listings, guest blog posts, and other site mentions to link directly back to the site. While the company website may be an island, it is an island in a vast sea of other islands. The more paths there are from different and related sites to the local business site, the better it is for search engine rankings.
Business owners also need to take the time to lay out a future plan. Getting those first few steps with online lead generation up and running is a massive step. It can often be tiring, but it will fail if the constant forward motion ever stops. It can slow and it can peak, but it should never stop. Search engine optimization is a constant battle between competitors and losing ground can be detrimental. Constantly reviewing tactics, implementing new techniques, and enhancing communications, linking strategies, and content generation methods will help to keep the sites popularity rising. As the sites popularity increases so to then does the local businesss revenue.
