2020 – Let’s Get r Done

It is hard to believe that I have been online now since 1999, which equates to 21 years this year. Now that is only how long I have been online in business, offline I have been self-employed since 1980 when we bought our first business which by the way I still have. We are definitely what you consider a small business, when I was younger I wanted to grow my business but today I just enjoy doing what I do.

I love helping others build their businesses also, that is the reason that I have my online directories and BuckeyeAds.com as a way of helping others build their business. Now unlike many online businesses out there I do not spend money on advertising but have built my business from organic SEO, my websites all rank very well on the search engines. Using my websites for your business advertising is a cost-effective way to build your business both online and offline and all listings will rank on the search engines but first you as a business owner have to see the need and understand the value, now I could sell you a bill of goods by advertising my site on the major serps telling you what a great site I have but then you really do not understand the value and understanding the value is creating a long term customer which is all I want. I see people almost every day either coming to my door or sending me an e-mail on advertising on their website these online advertising resources usually charge hundreds of dollars and in some instances thousands of dollars per year, with me you get on a website that ranks higher on the serps at a far less price. Then again I do not pay for advertising, I have rankings.

Over the years I have come to understand the value of advertising online as a way to build your offline business, as such I continue to build my offline business by building my online business. You can view my online businesses on the upper right side of the page so depending on the type of business you are in will help you hone in on where to advertise. Several months ago I added a forum to my online classified site for business only, here we can chat about your business and also how to advertise or basically anything related to business, this forum can be found at OhioForum.com

Additionally, should you like all of my websites I have added my own text and banner advertising site which provides my customers a cost-effective way to advertise on all of my sites for on monthly fee, putting your business in front of hundreds of thousands of customers each month for only $100 per month, not per impression charge like most websites. Heck on most websites you would only get 1000 impressions for that cost and less if you count click-throughs, which means when someone clicks through to your website. I always say my business is building your business and by helping you build your business will build my business so let’s build a business together.

In 2020 I look forward to meeting and helping you build your business both online and offline.

Business Marketing Online

Business Marketing Online

In today’s business arena if you do not have an online business marketing effort then you probably have a business

Online Marketing

that is struggling, you need to understand what is available to you online to really succeed with your offline ventures.  In our area we see business closings all of the time and when I look closely into why the business closes it is usually because the company did not make changes when they needed, these changes should include the following:

  • Having a website that is properly optimized for organic searches, start with local, regional and statewide then as you build incoming links you can expand to national and global rankings.  Start small and grow big!
  • Identify your markets and do not underestimate new potential new markets, be willing to make changes.
  • Do not wait until it is to late to make change, always look for new areas that offer potential growth.
  • Make immediate modifications in fixed expenses to match income,  the old saying you snooze you lose is very important.  Some companies worry about making cuts in employees but if you do not make cuts as needed you might not have any employees and no chance of ever bringing them back.
  • Study fixed expenses, modifications can always be made and some good changes are right in front of  your eyes.  Many times you may need to hire someone to analyze your business as someone else may see what you do not because you are to close to the problem areas.

Building a Better Business for Tomorrow

When making your move online you need to incorporate free and paid business advertising as a way to not only sell products but hone in on various relevant keywords for your business and products in addition to building incoming links to various pages in your website.  Create quality content for your advertising efforts and incorporate pictures as pictures are still worth a thousand words online or off, also incorporate social media into all of your advertising efforts to create chatter about your products or services.  Initially you will not create much chatter but as you learn to right quality content the chatter will start.  It is better to be a day late than a dollar short!

Identifying Changes in Business

Are you wanting to test changes before making changes on your website then take advantage of free and paid advertising to do so,  hone in on the keywords for local and regional results to see demand, study the results.  Create a special page that you advertising links to so you can see how many clicks are going to that page or use google analytics to view how many clicks come from various advertising efforts.

If you do not have google analytics on your website then we can set you up for just a small fee and you can start studying your traffic tomorrow.

SEO most important part of Website Design

Now more than ever it is important to properly optimize your website, businesses need to have a visible website. Unfortunately, the majority of people simply do not understand what an optimized site does for them, in addition, they do not understand the importance of Organic SEO.

Organic SEO and your existing website, how can it help? There are a couple of important questions that need to be asked prior to being able to let you know what type of local rankings that can be expected.

Proper website design, website properly created with good content, little or no tables in the design will rank higher than a website with the later in it. A clean design is singularly the most important part of obtaining a good ranking with your website.

New website will also take longer to obtain ranking that is why at Golden Advertising’s GUDesigns.com we provide that important part so that a new design not only looks good but has the incoming links needed to obtain ranking via local searches, more global searches will require more incoming links from more website and to do this you must provide fresh content on a regular basis so that other sites want to link to your website.

Why hire a website designer that simply designs a nice looking website with no optimization done, my biggest pet peeve is a nice design that has “Home” as the title of the website.

The next question that I would have to ask you is:  Do you want to spend more advertising dollars to bring people to your website or would you rather have a website that brings business to you?

As a business person for over 28 years I would rather have a website that brings business to me and my website does.

In business there are many important decisions that must be made when developing a website, what I find is most business people wait to the last minute to design a nice site usually after they have already spent thousands of dollars on paper and radio advertising. The last-ditch effort is a webpage when a website should be your first move and not your last move, not only is it the last move but after spending thousands on other forms of advertising which include the following:

Billboard advertising which can cost from $300. to $1,000. dollars a month and provide you limited visibility for only a certain market.

Radio and Television advertising which can easily go into the thousands and provide an internet business virtually no visibility all you can hope for is a little name recognition.

Newspaper advertising again which can easily go into the thousands and only provide local visibility as most papers online websites have limited visibility.

National publications are great but who can afford 10k and up for a one-shot deal, believe me with an internet business you will need more than a one-shot deal here.

With the above advertising outlets in mind, why would you want skimp on something that can be as important as a website? If you are a commerce site forget the full flash entry as the only way people are going to get to your door is through your advertising efforts either through pay per click which would be the best way but also very costly but if you have a monthly advertising budget this is the best way to go.

My brick and mortar business website: BakersMotel.com ranks for so many keywords that I rarely have to advertise, let me change that phrase? I never have to advertise this business in any form of publication and practically all of my outside business comes from my online efforts.

Personally, I remember when I had 4 highway signs each running several hundred dollars a month and also paid AAA for referrals, not no more! Today most independents have become chain to gain that national advertising, spending tens of thousands every year. If they put that same effort into a properly optimizing a website just think of the profits.

The same idea applies to any business, profitability is at your fingertips but most people choose not to see it or if they do they hire the first design firm that provides a nice website, but what is a nice website that is not optimized properly, let me tell you? It is just a nice website that no one will ever see and like your regular business that you are trying to build you now have another business to spend thousands of dollars to bring people to. Great Job! in today’s market place you to will probably be joining the masses, the only plus of a nice website is that you have tons of space to put information about your company though again if you have someone doing your web that does not understand the importance of properly optimizing the site all of that great information will never get seen.
