Site Marketing Services: Drive web site performance and results
"Build it and they will come" is a famous line from the movie Field of Dreams. However, following this strategy for your web site probably isn't the best approach. You must work hard to drive new and repeat visitors to your site. Search engines and portals are the primary tools used by Internet surfers to find target sites on the Net. Studies show that people making purchases on the Net are much more likely to use search engines to locate their target purchase than any other method.
The Red Arrow Group offers a comprehensive Search Engine Optimization Program. The program consists of three stages:
1) Analysis and Recommendation:
- Develop a baseline analysis of your company's current search engine rankings.
- Analyze your web site (structure, meta tags, titles, etc.) to evaluate its current search engine compatibility.
- Analyze your top competitors to evaluate their search engine performance and strategies.
- Recommend a customized Search Engine Optimization Program.
- Implement all of the recommended one-time enhancements and perform all of the ongoing programming requirements.
3) Site Submissions and Reporting:
- Ensure your site is registered with the target search engines.
- Provide monthly reports showing performance versus the initial baseline.
- Make monthly recommendations to enhance and modify the approach.
Red Arrow Group Site Revision Services
Let's face it - everything needs to be "done over" once in awhile. Your site probably does too.
Your business is constantly changing, and your Web site needs to keep up. You may have a major new branding campaign going on, or just want to change out a few graphics. The Red Arrow Group specializes in taking a look at your site and making recommendations for change. We can provide you with a report on the changes we recommend, and can then go ahead and implement those changes for you.
Working together, we can make your site even better than it is now!
