Digital Must-Haves: How to Get Ahead Online in 2019

Written By: Mary Fonvielle

We’re three months into 2019: Is your business following a good digital strategy? There’s no excuse not to have these digital must-haves on your radar! 

 

Make sure your website is… 

Mobile friendly

64% of Google search clicks originated from mobile in 2018. If your site isn’t mobile-friendly, you’re ignoring the majority of your website users! Check out your website on your smartphone.

Optimized

Cheap hosting, poor quality web design, and other issues all contribute to slow speeds and lost traffic for your website. 

User-centric

Can people find what they’re looking for on your website? Is it easy for people to understand what your business is about? Ask a friend or family member to give feedback. 

 

Make sure you’re actively…

Engaging on social media

You don’t have to be on every social platform out there (and you shouldn’t be), but it’s important to be where your customers are. Stay active (but don’t spam!) and keep your name in front of your customer base.

Blogging for your business

Your potential customers have questions. The companies who answer those questions will become a trusted resource and will often earn the business. Start a company blog to talk about anything related to your industry and set yourself up as the go-to in your field.

Checking your data

Are your efforts turning a profit? The only way to be sure is with thorough data reporting and analytics. If you aren’t sure what your ROI is for your marketing strategy, it’s time to change how you’re marketing. 

 

Consider adding… 

Chatbots and live chat options

Your leads and customers want answers fast, but they might not be willing to pick up the phone. Make it easy to start a conversation with embedded chat options on your website and social media pages. 

Text messaging

Yes, really. Texting at work might still be taboo, but text message marketing is on the rise and is set to become an essential part of any marketing strategy over the next few years.

Automation tools

Are daily repetitive tasks bogging down your productivity? Automation tools can help streamline your sales and marketing processes and leave you with more time in your day.
