Plant the Seeds of Growth on the Web

Plant the Seeds of Growth on the Web

You want your business to grow. But you aren’t sure how to make that happen. While business growth and expansion are based on many factors, including your work ethic, quality of your product, and marketing skills, your website also matters.

Having a professional online presence begins with creating a website that offers information, tools, and services your customers want and need. A few examples here include:

  • A custom app. There are many reasons that your business should consider bringing in an expert from Ojambo Services to design and code a custom app. Having a mobile application opens up new opportunities for revenue, allows you to track and analyze customer behavior, and, perhaps most importantly, enhances your customers’ user experience.
  • Integration with your internal processes. To reduce redundancy, help you keep up with inventory, and better track revenue, your website should integrate with your ERP, CRM, and other internal processes. Some enterprise resource planning software is designed specifically to work with e-commerce. However, as IT architecture service firm Pixafy explains, others pose challenges and are best handled by an experienced developer/coder.
  • A strong and cohesive brand. Your website is one of the first places your customers will look for information about your business. This is where your brand begins. Ensure that you create a lasting first impression by having your website designed to best showcase your brand. If you do not have the budget for a graphic designer, start with the basics. You can create a logo quickly on your own using a free or paid online platform. A logo maker is an appealing option, and the right one will give you all of the tools you need to combine colors, fonts, and other visual elements to design the perfect logo for your business.
  • Mobile capabilities. According to Pew Research, all but 3% of Americans now own a smartphone. We use our phones for many things, including shopping and navigating to our retail destinations. As a business owner, you can perpetuate your business’s growth by ensuring that your website is mobile and allows for one-click access to call, chat, or navigate to your location. Further, a mobile site is often free of clutter, such as promotional marketing and graphic elements, that might distract people from the reason they visited your site in the first place.
  • Search engine visibility. Search engine visibility is crucial for all businesses. What does this mean? It means your website is easily found on a Google search. For example, a user looks online for an ice cream shop. The results they see, which are called Search Engine Results Pages, are usually the businesses they patronize. To help your website pop up on these results pages, make sure that you create a site map, use the right types of keywords, post engaging content, and make sure that your site is submitted to all pertinent directories.

Having a strong and stable web presence increases business visibility, boosts operational efficiency, and offers a way for your customers to contact you around the clock. Websites are typically cost-effective and, when tied in with your brand, are an excellent marketing tool that you control. Don’t miss out on a valuable opportunity to use the internet to your advantage, and never lose sight of the fact that your website is a digital extension of your business. As the world continues to run on the web, your site is perhaps the most important aspect of your organization.
