This will help google index it faster and start improving your SEO rankings immediately. Here are some ways to consider getting the word out.

[/vc_custom_heading][vc_column_text]

• Email Newsletter – if you have a newsletter or email list, be sure to let them know that the new site has launched and even more importantly, how it can help their business or add value to them. Mailchimp is what I use and highly recommend.

• Social Media – use your network of Facebook friends, family or co-workers to get the word out. You’d be surprised how far one post can go when it’s shared and liked. Also, if you’re active on Linked In, Instagram or other socials, share away!!

• Word of Mouth – word of mouth is still the most powerful referral. If you’re as excited as we are when your site launches, tell those around you! Get their opinion and see what they think about your new online presence. That’s valuable feedback that may come in handy when considering changes and additions to the site moving forward.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space empty_h=”2″][vc_separator sep_color=”accent” el_width=”75%”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_height_percent=”0″ override_padding=”yes” h_padding=”2″ top_padding=”2″ bottom_padding=”2″ overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ border_color=”color-191202″ shift_y=”0″ css=”.vc_custom_1487718348958{border-bottom-width: 1px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_custom_heading text_size=”h1″ text_color=”color-192890″]ASK FOR REVIEWS[/vc_custom_heading][vc_custom_heading text_size=”h4″]Online reviews are more important than ever. Particularly for businesses being googled and found online, a user will look at reviews almost immediately. There are many different ways and platforms on ways to get reviews, but here are some we recommend:[/vc_custom_heading][vc_column_text]• Google Review – this is highly recommended as google reviews are generally what will pop up when somebody finds your site with an online search. You can either have your customers google your business, then leave a review OR you can use this site to generate a direct link. It’s super handy.

• Facebook Reviews – Facebook reviews are also great and are now a more reputable spot for customer reviews. Don’t be afraid to ask for your customers to leave a review on your Facebook page and have them share it. Or get their permission for you to share it.

• Testimonials for Website – after your website is live, we recommend gathering as many testimonials as possible to post on the website. Even if you don’t currently have any on the site, if you can gather 5-10 good, personalized reviews (usually gathered via email or off of google or Facebook) we can eventually set up a testimonials page. Users will often look for reviews ON the site as well as on other outlets before making a purchase, calling or emailing. I recommend putting the best ones on the site.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space empty_h=”2″][vc_separator sep_color=”accent” el_width=”95%”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_height_percent=”0″ override_padding=”yes” h_padding=”2″ top_padding=”2″ bottom_padding=”3″ overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ border_color=”color-191202″ shift_y=”0″ css=”.vc_custom_1487719956913{border-bottom-width: 1px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_custom_heading text_size=”h1″ text_color=”color-192890″]KEEP THINGS FRESH & UPDATED[/vc_custom_heading][vc_custom_heading text_size=”h4″]After your website has been live for awhile, we recommend doing some things to keep it fresh. Particularly if you have a site with repeat or recurring visitors. Here are some suggestions:[/vc_custom_heading][vc_column_text]• Change Out Images – we recommend changing out or updating images 1-3 times a year. If your website has a main image right when you open the front page, it’s important to keep that fresh and new. For the user, it looks like you’re taking the time to update your site and therefore making it more valuable for them.

• Colors/Layout – if your site has been sitting for more than a year or so, it’s strongly recommended that you do something to spice it up. Whether it’s making some cosmetic changes to the action colors or menu bar, or even just adjusting or adding some new graphics/images. Keeping your site fresh is a GREAT way to keep people coming back.

• Keep Your Information Updated – if information, staff, hours or services change for your business, be sure to change the website too! There’s nothing worse than having wrong information on a website. Or have a staff member’s picture on the page who doesn’t work there anymore. Keep your website updated and streamlined to your business.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_height_percent=”35″ back_color=”color-192890″ back_image=”48863″ overlay_color=”color-192890″ overlay_alpha=”93″ gutter_size=”3″ shift_y=”0″][vc_column column_width_percent=”100″ position_vertical=”middle” align_horizontal=”align_center” style=”dark” overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ medium_width=”0″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ z_index=”0″ width=”1/1″][vc_custom_heading text_size=”h1″ text_color=”color-xsdn”]WE LOVE TESTIMONIALS![/vc_custom_heading][vc_custom_heading text_size=”h4″ text_color=”color-xsdn”]
