For a new or expanding business the term ‘online presence’ is something we use a great deal in what we do and is vitally important for them but sometimes you don’t realise it until you speak to us. You may be comfortable in what you do as a business but there is always room to utilise and improve how you come across to your stakeholders. The different scopes into online development is much more than just improving your website, there is so much you can do as a business.
When we talk about improving your ‘online presence’ it incorporates the many different areas of your business and allows them to be showcased on much more than just your website, it’s everything you do. From your website, online store, different selling platforms, social media and any other online means you can think of it is how you put your brand across to the outside world (customers). We are now in an era where technology has taken over and your customers are more than likely to hear and interact with you via your website or application, showing how important it is for a business to update and develop your ‘online presence’. A good presence and an ability for your customers to interact with you becomes major components in building your business and achieving revenue. To achieve the longevity of your customers and their continual support the business’s website/store/app/eCommerce platform must be easy to use and navigate.
We talk about that ‘presence’ as it’s so much more than just a website, it’s any existence of you as an individual or business that can be found via an online search. Customers want to find you, and the way they do this is from an online search, so a business needs to ensure they have their identity showcased and are equally easy to find and do business in whatever way that may be.
