How To Make Your Website Work Harder— And Smarter
There’s no shortage of information on the Internet about ways to improve your website’s search engine rankings, how to use various pay-per-click services, and so many other topics related to online marketing.
Almost all these sources of information share two common problems:
1) They’re written by researchers, academicians or technically oriented people. They may understand these subjects, but they don’t know much about how to actually implement these tools. Or they know how to do it, but not how to explain it to someone else.
2) They want to sell you something: programs, plans, web hosting or technical services. Their material may promise to tell you how to do it yourself, but they’ll make it sound so complicated you won’t know where to start. And they’re hoping you’ll turn to them.
There’s nothing really wrong with these approaches; they’re just not too helpful. And they’re tainted with ulterior motives. After all, even companies who help other companies do Internet marketing need to market themselves.
Here’s what’s going to be different about this blog:
1) We’ll explain everything in plain English, so you don’t need to be an MIT graduate to understand what we’re talking about. And, because this is a blog, you can absorb the information at your own pace, insert notes anywhere in the text, and come back for review whenever you want.
2) We are going to tell you how to do it yourself. But these tools are technical and time-consuming, and you may decide it’s not cost-effective to spend your time implementing the necessary changes.
And yes, we do hope you’ll turn to us for help, if you need it. But we’re not going to try to bamboozle you from the start, just so you’ll give up and give us a call.
One more thing: We’re not researchers or academicians. We are technically oriented, but we hope you won’t hold that against us. What we mean to say is, the stuff we’ll be explaining inside is the stuff we do all day, every day. We know it inside and out. So, if you decide you don’t have the time or the inclination to tackle these issues yourself, we hope what you read here will persuade you we’ve got the expertise to understand your business, analyze what needs fixing, and implement whatever changes are required.
Oh, and there’s still one more thing: We offer a promise no other supplier in the industry dares to make:
We guarantee our services will increase the results of your online marketing.
Since 1998 we’ve delivered on that promise—time after time, for a broad range of clients, in a wide variety of industries. We’re willing to put that much on the line to make sure you’re more than satisfied with the work we do. So put us to the test. We’d be delighted to add you to our client list.
