A good website is vital…and not as easy as pie

December 12th, 2016 by


A good website is vital to the success of any business.

I do a lot of consulting with small business owners who are looking to improve their business. I tell them there are 3 must-haves to succeed in business.

  • A Business Plan – to focuses on goals and how to reach them
  • A Financial Plan – to plot to review budget
  • A Marketing Plan – to get the word out and drum up the business.

My job is the marketing plan.

Marketing is many faceted. It covers branding & name recognition, marketing campaign creation and lead generation. Every industry expert has a perspective about what’s most important, but everyone agrees on one thing – a business must have a strong website.

A good website is vital, since all our marketing efforts point to it. A good website needs to have the right bells & whistles, look professional, read well, have a well-functioning shopping cart feature. Just ask Wikipedia.

Many small businesses do it themselves; many others look to professionals to do it for them.  For those business owners who are trying to decide what they want their site to look like and don’t know where to start. Give us a call – we have lots of partners we can refer you to!

  6. With leaving comments on other blogs, you expose your site for more traffic. Although it is very hard to be the first commentator, it does help in the long run as some will visit your site link. Commenting plays an important role as you receive more visitors and you could also have the visitor sign up for email updates. I also visit the users site when they leave a comment as I could find some valuable info or even sign up for their email updates.

  7. I mentioned this article in an upcoming blog post. I used blog commenting way back in the day and I think it still works. You have to be consistent and focus on providing value while getting backlinks at the same time. A well rounded link profile gets attention in the search engines. Find out where your audience hangs out and speak to them.
