Social Media Marketing
SEO Company in Las Vegas
Search engine optimization is a long term online marketing process that has tremendously positive results. These constructive results have seen a rapid increase in the number of companies, from every industry, which are now, absorbed a huge portion of their marketing budget to combating for the top position in search engines.
Obviously by implementing an SEO campaign, a beginning aim will be to progress you SEO rankings. By employing a search engine optimization company in Las Vegas, you are buying into their years of SEO knowledge. This knowledge is priceless! Without this SEO knowledge it will be a lot harder (and longer) to gain those page one ranking that you desire. Companies that specialize in SEO live and breathe the topic (search marketing, internet marketing, online marketing) – power that knowledge by employing a plausible SEO company in Las Vegas and you are bound to see improvements in your SEO rankings.
You can hardly claim to be the absolute best in the business when no one has ever heard of your company. Sometimes you need to work on making people alert of your company even if that doesn’t result in instant sales, but you will gain more income in the long term by building yourself up and ensuring that your target market knows who you are. If your website is ranking in search engine results pages then users will spot your company name, the more they see it, and the more they will relate your expertise in the field. A great way to earn brand acknowledgment from potential consumers is to get your website ranking on the search engine results pages. Many consumers are uninformed of the techniques and benefits that SEO can present, often assuming that if a company is ranked highly on Google it is because they are trust worthy, reliable and are suitable to that search term. By implementing SEO techniques into your website, and improving your rankings, it can be a big way to show the consumer that your company meets their requirements and will be a great way to improve your brand acknowledgment. Online consumers will also assume that any consistent company should be represented on Google and if you aren’t, they will be a lot more cautious in their browsing.
Further to earning higher rankings on search engines results pages to increase credit, syndicating your website out to other external websites to gain links is another SEO technique that is a great way to get your company name all over the web.
Search engine marketing is low cost compared to other types of marketing and is debatably one of the most effective. The actual cost of an SEO campaign is individual and depends completely on the budget you have, we have projects for companies and budgets of all sizes to fit any needs, but a monthly cost to a SEO agency will be much cheaper than buying traffic through PPC (Pay per Click), and SEO costs tend to lower with time. Choosing to ignore SEO is almost impracticable when users are constantly using search engines, such as Google to locate what they’re after online. Businesses can gain so much traffic from their optimized websites, so it is vital to fully optimize your site to help you stay in the game.
Simply, if your website is ranking high for accepted terms then you will receive clicks from users. Traffic is the middle man between brand alertness and sales; once you have earned high-quality results for brand awareness then you will receive clicks and the more clicks you get, the higher chance of sales. Traffic also helps to improve SEO further, if your traffic improves then your SEO results are likely to improve further as you become more establishments. For any company with a website, a key aim in their online marketing campaign should be to drive traffic. Every company is after more traffic and more customers even if you don’t receive any income from those customers until later on in the campaign, but wouldn’t you rather those users knew about your website for when that ‘interest’ became ‘intent to buy’ and not one of your competitors?
At the end of the day, marketing has an aim to drive more sales to the business, SEO is a tremendously useful form of online marketing which will give you value for your money. As search engine optimization brings in more traffic to the site, you will receive more sales and if you aren’t receiving these sales then it is a huge pointer that there are problems within your website. Just make sure to take the time to find and research SEO companies in Las Vegas that are willing to help you.
Time spent on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube grows
For further proof, just take a gander at new Nielsen research out today. It says Americans spend nearly a quarter of the time they’re on the Internet from their PC, or about six hours a month, on social-networking sites and blogs. That’s a quantum leap from a year ago and underscores the growing power of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
The new research also reveals U.S. consumers spend the plurality of their time online, or 36% of it, communicating and networking across social networks, blogs, personal e-mail and instant messaging.
The rise of social networks has enhanced consumption of videos, movies and news and sports articles. “Friends and family are endorsing content to others,” says Dave Martin, vice president of primary research at Nielsen.
Small firms dive into social media
A surge in social-media use by small businesses reflects a shift in how they operate and their comfort with increasingly easy-to-use technology.
In growing numbers, small-business owners are adopting social-networking services, location-based services, Twitter and online video to promote products and services, according to a new study by MerchantCircle, a social network for small businesses. It polled a fraction of its more than 1.3 million members.
The survey results are the strongest evidence yet that small businesses — which account for more than 90% of all U.S. companies and fuel the economy — are accelerating their use of social media at the expense of traditional media such as newspapers, the Yellow Pages and radio. Even e-mail messages have taken a beating.
Businesses with fewer than five employees “see Facebook and others as a way to reach targeted consumers” while saving marketing expenditures during a rough economy, says Darren Waddell, vice president of marketing at MerchantCircle.
Social Networking Sites – Why it's important to have your very own
So on the Web, more and more social networking sites are sprouting up every day. But the majority of popularity has fallen upon Facebook and secondly, Myspace.
These social networking sites have the advantage of early entry to the marketplace and have established themselves as the leaders in this group. Myspace is generally for a younger audience who enjoys music and videos more than updates on there friends.
Facebook has become the practical site where people are more interested in updates from their friends list. Also there is an endless supply of web applications that have made Facebook fun and useful.
But where is this social networking trend taking us? Well, with Facebook, you can have “Fan” or “Company” Pages to help promote your group/business. You can also set up groups where people can gather online to share and discuss certain topics.
But the one weakness that Facebook has is that it is too general. Meaning, it is an online meeting place with no certain genre or niche. So on Facebook, you can meet anyone of any type, shape, ethnicity, age, location, etc. There isn’t a focus or requirement to join this global community.
And this is where a small start-up social networking site can have an advantage. By creating a site that specializes in a certain genre (say for example, young people who are fans of baseball), you can create a specific community that like-minded people can join and meet other similar people. So how is this done you may ask?
Media One Pro has the skills to produce a social networking site in a short amount of time (1-4 weeks). We can design and develop your site with any specific niche in mind!
What are the costs you may now ask? Well, to hire a developer to create the code and build your site, you would be looking at an upwards of $20-30,000. This does not include monthly hosting costs or monthly maintenance.
So now is a social networking site out of your league? Not with us! For a limited time, we can take on new projects and create your social network for less than $1,000 to setup and only $150/month for hosting and maintenance!
Here’s what you get in details:
1) Domain Name Registration
2) 1 Template Creation
3) 1 Template Revision
4) Setup of Social Networking Application
5) 1 Content Management System installed and setup
6) 1 hour Social Media consultation (a $200 value!)
7) 1 month free hosting
After your initial setup fee ($1,000), you only pay $150/month. This includes hosting, support, and 1 article or 1 video optimization and submission.
You not only save yourself the $20-30,000 in developer costs, but you pay one flat monthly fee to maintain your own site (and dont’ forget, you can make this money back with simple ad placements, such as Google and Adbrite!).
So what are you waiting for? Contact us today for your FREE consultation and let’s get your business online with social media and ahead of the pack!
