Although this is a common problem, there are solutions. Below we offer some suggestions that will help increase your likes, comments, shares as well as help get your website more traffic.


Ask a question - 

People love to give their advice and offer their opinion. Polls offer a great way to begin a discussion between you and your followers, this will also give you great insight from your audience. A good example of a poll would be something like " By a show of 'Likes', have you ever recommended our service to someone? If so/not, tell us why? " or something like this to get a conversation going.

Is your business focusing on Google reviews? Here's why you should be.

What does your business look like on Google? Do you have any reviews? Are they good or not so good? It is very important for local businesses to put more focus on Google reviews going into 2015. If your website is ranking at the top of Google then you will of course attract more visitors, you’ll see more volume in sales, and essentially more revenue. However, it is easy for a potential customer or client to go with the other guys simply because they have reviews next to their listing and your business did not. Google reviews ( or lack thereof ) can also affect search engine rankings, so along with a proper SEO regimen, reviews can help keep your website exposure where you want it to be.


Currently, Google does not accept reviews from third-party websites such as Yelp and that is why Google local reviews have become more important. You should look for ways on how to get more Google local reviews from customers every time they use your services. Offer them an incentive before or after you have worked with them! Encourage them to share their experience with your business to others.


Why am I not getting more traffic to my website?

When businesses launch their websites for the first time, they tend to expect to gain an audience immediately. Most businesses are usually shocked by how taxing it can be to get someone to pay attention to their business, let alone find their website. Contrary to popular belief, having a website does not mean that all of a sudden you have a strong presence online. The easy part is usually to get your website up and running, the hard part is finding a way to get people to visit it.

There are many competitors who are online marketing their website which can make it more of a challenge for anyone to notice your website. The key to having a strong online web presence is not having a website alone, you need to be active on the internet. You need to advertise and market your website through different mediums.


Video is Important When Marketing Online

A good business owner does their very best to ensure that they have a blog or website so they have a strong presence online. But having a website is not the hard part; the difficult part is drawing attention to your website. The more visitors you get to your site, the more likely you are to convert visitors into clients. 


One of the most emphasized concepts when it comes to web design is the content you put in your website. Indeed, you need to have search engine optimized content, so that your rankings in popular search engines are good. But this is not enough; you also need to have valuable content that will catch the attention of your audience. This is where video is incorporated.
