How to help prospective customers find your business
“Google me” Can your prospects find your business online?
When I say Google me, I don’t just mean Google your business name or your name. I want to know what the prospective client or business partner finds when they search for your type of business.
What does someone find when they search for you?
Let’s say I’m on vacation in St. Maarten and I type into any search engine “restaurant in St. Maarten” what will the search results return to me (if anything) about your business? Do you have any control over it?
The Internet is the number one information provider.
More than ever before, the Internet is the number one “go-to” resource to get information about businesses locally and abroad. It is now important to have a professional web presence that gives enough information about your business and what a prospect can expect.
Information about you that you can control
You want to have enough information about what you do available on your website that you own and control. This information will assist a prospect in their decision to contact you or not. It will also allow them to determine whether they want to know, like and trust you (and/or your business).
Everyone wants options
At Caribonix, our idea of a business getting online is about options. Yes, options! We have a goal to give every Caribbean business the option to get online. By making it easy and affordable for businesses to have a great quality and professional online presence, we are making this goal feasible.
You can only be found if you are present
You have the option to present your business to the world, you can use it or not. But by using your option, you are giving prospective customers an additional option. Now the most popular business in your industry doesn’t need to be the one with the biggest marketing budget. It could be you, if you are an option. If your online presentation (content, customer reviews/testimonials, design, etc) is what prospective customers are looking for, then it will be easier for them to find your business online.
So is your business online yet? Or are you online but not getting any results as yet?
If you are online and getting results please tell us more about how, we would love for you to share your success stories with other readers. But if you’re not getting results from your use of the Internet or you’re not online yet send us an email at sales [at] caribonix [dot] com a Caribonix representative will be happy to give you some advice.
