No Matter the Weather or the Economy, Internet Marketing is Vital to Business Success

No Matter the Weather or the Economy, Internet Marketing is Vital to Business Success
In my last post, I described some of the many ways that businesses can benefit from stepping up their internet marketing efforts during a slowdown. When sales are down and new leads are nearly non-existent, your instincts may be telling you to sit tight and wait...or pray...or cross your fingers, and to pull back on any spending that isn't required to keep the lights and heat on. In reality, a slowdown isn't the time to sit by and fret - it's the time to take action! For any business, whether big or small, located in Grande Prairie or anywhere else, directing your attention to internet marketing and enhancing your online presence is the best way to turn around an otherwise dismal situation.

Business is Slow? Discover Why this is the Best Time to Ramp Up Your Online Marketing Efforts

Business is Slow? Discover Why this is the Best Time to Ramp Up Your Online Marketing Efforts
When it seems like you've got to blow dust off your computer before you can enter a sale, or your vintage bottle cap club received more new sign-ups in the last month than you did new leads, it can be hard not to panic. We know what it's like, every business has been there before - and will likely be there again, at some point in time. That said, try to resist the urge to obsessively compare this month's sales to last or to claw back on any business expenses that don't fall into the heat and hydro category. Instead, take action in the days, weeks and months when business is slow and do something that will not only be of benefit now, but also during the months when you find yourself wishing for more hours in the day to get things done.   Believe it or not, slowdowns are...

More than Just a Web Development Company, Saltmedia Offers the Online Marketing Solution You Need to Drive More Customers & Sales to Your Business
At some point over the years, you probably advertised your business in newspapers, magazines and brochures. The thing about these more traditional forms of marketing is that they've been made nearly redundant by the many advertising platforms that are available on the internet. When most people today look online for the businesses they'll frequent, and an advertisement sent out across various channels on the internet has the potential to reach exponentially more people than an ad in your local newspaper, it goes without saying that online marketing is a must for businesses. The thing about online marketing is that you've got to A) know how and where to effectively brand and advertise your business, and B) you've got to have the time to actually do it. Whether you operate a pet food store in Valleyview, AB, or a restaurant in Dawson Creek, BC, chances are you can't devote the amount...

Saltmedia Puts Businesses at the Top of Google's Search Results with Industry-Leading Search Engine Optimization
Any way you cut it, businesses with websites that appear at the top of the Google search results get more traffic and leads than those that rank further down the page. Really, few people venture beyond the top three results when they're searching online, and this is bad news for businesses with websites that are buried in the abyss - why own a website if nobody will be able to find it? For several years now, Saltmedia has been providing businesses in northern Alberta and BC with highly professional web and graphic design services. But as web designers who always have their finger on the industry's pulse, we know that owning the coolest looking and functioning website means nothing if it doesn't rank at the top of the search results, and because page two just won't cut it for our clients, we added the most innovative search engine optimization (SEO)...
