Yes it's that time of year again where we brush off the last year, New Years resolutions have been made (and probably already broken) and now we're making sure our plans are in place for the year ahead.
We know that it is very easy to ignore your own website and digital marketing as you are busy working for your clients but it is something that shouldn't be put down the list and it is just as important to make sure that your own marketing and website are updated.
Where do you start? Here are some pointers to kick start you into 2016 to keep your online presence uptodate:-
Ensure your website works across Mobile devices
With UK online browsers using their mobile phones and tablets to search for information and view websites it is now very important to ensure that your website adapts to work across these devices. If your website does not change in size or adapt to the screen it is being viewed on, then it is not Mobile friendly.
Also, Google will now rank a mobile friendly website higher than a non mobile friendly website in their mobile search results, so if its important for your site to rank in the Google search results then you need to ensure your site is Mobile friendly.
Even if you're not worried about featuring high on Google, remember that by having a 'responsive' designed website it's your customers that will be benefiting from the mobile friendly experience when browsing via their devices.

Super charge your website!
We can make your site load faster; meaning that not only will your customers enjoy a quicker browsing experience but you will also earn extra brownie points with Google as we know that page speed is a core part of their algorithm, which means it ranks 'faster' websites, higher.
As well as making your site run faster as part of the service we can also provide protection for your Website against the ever increasing online threats, ranging from annoyances like comment spam and excessive bot crawling to malicious attacks like SQL injection and denial of service (DOS) attacks.

Is it time to improve, evolve or redesign your Company website?
There are several reasons to consider a fresh new look such as :-
- your Company has evolved and your website needs to as well
- an underperforming website
- one that looks tired and out of date
- not being found on the search engines
- not being mobile friendly
- too slow
- hard to update
- you're embarrassed to give out your url!

Use Social Media to engage with your customers
Social Media such as Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook etc are now seen as an important part of your online marketing strategy.
They allow you to get the word out, build trust and promote conversation about your products and services to your existing and potential customers. You can use social media campaigns to gain a wealth of information to enhance your customers’ experience.
A well run campaign can be a powerful tool to improve your reach, extend your name recognition, bring in new customers and build relationships and loyalty.

Life's better when everything is in sync!
It is now the norm to be working across several devices such as iPhones, Android, BlackBerrys, iPads, a Desktop PC, Laptop etc. However the trouble with conventional Internet email is that if you send an email on your laptop it is only in your sent items on your laptop. Similarly if you put something in your calendar it is not available everywhere (unless you have an in-house server that synchronises everything for you).
With Hosted Email it acts like an in-house server (but without the cost or maintenance) and will synchronise across all your devices automatically, allowing you to work seamlessly.
If you haven't yet moved to Hosted email then contact us.
Team Net Digital Bristol are here to help you move into 2016. We look forward to hearing from you.
