Stand out digitally with a rockin’ website. Your website is the nucleus of your digital marketing. Always think of your website as a go-to for wandering eyes, repeat customers, and a virtual storefront. An eye-catching professional website is intriguing as well as engaging and will pull your customer in to explore more. The more informational your site is, the longer your potential customers will stick around to explore more because what they are looking for is on your site. Furthermore, you can maximize your return on investment by having a strong website. We at Ignite suggest you continuously review and update your site to continue the goal of a high conversion rate.

LET’S GET SOCIAL

Did you know that 54% of social browsers use social media to research products? So, let’s get social. With mobile devices always readily available, a quick search, and browse with answers at the end of the search, you can turn this browser into a potential customer. Create nutrient-rich content that feeds the reader the information they are looking for.

OPTIMIZE AND STAND OUT

So you can talk-the-talk but can you walk-the-walk? All jokes aside, you can have a flawless website but if you don’t implement search engine optimization, SEO, your site might never be viewed. Google, now used oftentimes as a verb, is a search engine like no other. When you optimize your content you are telling Google in a sense who you are and what you do. SEO is oftentimes a task business owners skip because of its daunting stereotype. While it can be challenging, it’s a vital step we at Ignite take seriously and highly recommend you look into.

SEO is one of the most effective tools for longevity and generating high-targeted traffic to your site. You have the power to choose the keywords you rank for which is such an amazing aspect of SEO. Searching highly-searched keywords is a great start when it comes to adding rich content into your current site copy.
