A company’s website has more than one purpose. Primarily it’s used to strengthen and build the company’s brand. The other valuable functions of a website include extra revenue earning though advertisements and increasing your company’s global audience. The concept of target marketing has been redefined in an online marketing world. Previously companies tried to reach regional or national audience, today people aim for global target audience.
<div>A website was not considered a primary advertising tool for many in the past. It was used as a back-up plan and secondary marketing tool. With rapid increase in the number of Internet users and net-based services (often free of cost), more people are attracted to the Internet. The mindset of companies has changed; the Internet is no longer looked at like a fad or trend. Even small companies offering products or services to a limited market aim to have a website. Statistics have shown that people who surf the net for information, do so through organic search engine results (e.g Google, Yahoo). Internet users type what they want to know in the search box of their browsers and try to reach the desired information on site(s) quickly. Very few people go directly to a company’s site by typing the website address in the URL.
This search engine based process has widened the scope of online marketing and advertisements. You would want to attract web users to your site. This is done for two reasons. First, high traffic volume generated to your site means your brand has been exposed to a high number of consumers. Maintaining traffic and reach of your website yields a successful branding strategy. As a result, your brand’s recall value will increase. Secondly, with more daily visits your site advertisers will be enticed (including Google Adsense, etc.) to place ads on your website. Relevant ads on your site will increase revenue and click-through rate considerably. Key to achieving these goals: Your company’s site must exhibit the most up-to-date website design and quality content.
Research has shown that the search engine optimization process contributes to the visibility of your site on the first page of a search engine (if not the first link!). Great designs have failed to achieve a perfect SEO because they do not place enough importance on quality of content. The lexis is as important as the design, if not more. But most website development companies ignore content. Experts say that search engines like Google pick up the keyword(s) and phrases from the content of an individual site and use it to promote it in its optimization process that relies on a mathematical algorithm to rate the prominence of web pages. It is thus vital to give more time to web content. Encourage including content that is not only interesting but also original.
