#091: What You Need to do Before Investing in Online Marketing
Quote of the day: “The only thing that overcomes hard luck is hard work.” – Harry Golden
The most important thing you can do before hiring an online marketing company is to fix your website.
You don’t want to drive traffic to your site through online marketing (such as SEO or PPC) if you have a website that doesn’t properly communicate your brand, your message, and a good reason for why visitors should use you over someone else. If you’re just going to lose those visitors at the end of the process due to your site, then online marketing is a waste of your time and money.
To fix this, you’ll need to have a website that accurately reflects your business. Don’t go out and get a website that was done with a DIY website builder (GoDaddy, VistaPrint). You need to find and hire an expert who understands all of the best practices that go along with creating a website.
A good online marketing company should understand user experience, website design, web development, SEO, and standard practices.
You want to ensure that you’re hiring an experienced and reliable company that’s able to deliver the kind of experience that you need.
