Web Presence, a No-Brainer?
In today’s digital world, there is no longer any doubt about your business’s need to have an online presence. The majority of businesses, large and small have some type of online presence. Whether it is a website or a Facebook page, nearly any serious business operation can be found on the web. The internet is truly the Yellow Pages of today for commercial enterprises. It was once considered mandatory for any reputable business to have an ad in those giant, yellow-paged books. Could a potential customer see you on the web? Review dominated sites like Yelp can help you increase your web presence in a positive way.
Likes, Shares & Comments are Advertising Gold.
You can spend outrageous sums on all types of advertising methods. Whether mail, electronic or media driven, not many avenues generate business like your OWN CUSTOMERS. They can be a more effective sales force than the ones you actually pay to get the word out. Nothing can sell you or your product better than someone who has experience with your firm or products. There is no substitute for real-life experience. Especially in the semi-anonymous world of the web.
To Yelp or Not to Yelp, That is the Question.
Your business already has a website and the Facebook page gets lots of traffic every day. What else do you need?
