Online Marketing Services
Online Marketing refers to using the power of the Internet to reach potential clients looking for your services. Web design, search advertising, display ads, social media, and search engine optimization all play a role. Each has its benefits and drawbacks. We’ll help you navigate the complex landscape of online marketing and ensure you see a good return on your investment.
The Basics: Your Website
Your website is the most important part of your online marketing efforts. All of your advertising should direct people to your website, and it’s where people will naturally go to learn about you. Your website needs to be a good resource for information about your business, with both current and prospective customers visiting it.
To be successful, your marketing website needs to:
- clearly identify who you are
- intuitively describe what you offer
- communicate a clear and concise value proposition
- have a clear call to action so that visitors know what to do next
We can ensure your website performs these four basic functions with a free review of your current website or help you to build a new one.
Search Advertising with Google Ads
Google Ads puts your website in front of people searching for your products and services. With a properly structured campaign and website, Internet searchers who see and click on your ad are pre-qualified leads. This focuses your advertising spending on only the people that need your service and gets the most from your marketing budget.
Our standard Google Ads management service includes:
- Keyword research, bidding, and ad group management
- Setup and management of spending limits, geo-targeting, conversion tracking, and analytic reporting
