This presentation is the second part to our previous “Getting the Most Out of Your Website” workshop. Click here to download the first workshop.

Your website is an essential part of your small business, it is important to give it the attention it deserves. We repeatedly see good websites deliver excellent results for small businesses which would previously have wasted a lot of time and money on ineffective marketing.

In this presentation, we will cover topics ranging from Google+, the importance  of social shares, link-building, video (YouTube) and more. We will be giving out another free SEO checklist (mapping the value Google’s page rank algorithm puts on different types of marketing channels) as well as other resources at the meeting.

We will cover all the essential elements to creating a Google-friendly website.

Here is a list of things to do to improve your Google ranking:

  1. Get verified by Google
    – search and sign up for “Google My Business”
    – then get reviews (ask for them!)
  2. Automate/ Schedule your social media posting
    – sign up for Buffer or HootSuite
  3. Start Blogging + sharing posts with Buffer/HootSuite
    – make sure to link back to your website as much as possible to improve SEO results
    – hire a writer or go to if you don’t have the time to write your own content
  4. Engage on Social Media
    – replay to comments, messages and shares as quickly as possible to make a good impression
    – ask your friends/readers if they could share your stuff.
    – share other peoples stuff, they will return the favor (hint hint)
  5. Start Email Marketing
    – sign up for MailChimp
    – import your contact list (people who have given you permission always works better)
    – start asking for email subscribers
  6. Setup Google Analytics
    – you can’t improve on something that you can measure

And remember to focus your efforts on your content, the absolute best way to have a successful website is is to create tools and resources that people link to. Boring I know.
