This gives our staff a pretty good handle on the main needs and concerns of our nation’s entrepreneurs. If they have one thing in common, it’s they all are interested in ways to effectively market their businesses without overspending. This is a legitimate concern, of course.

All business owners need to be on top of their advertising campaigns. Especially in today’s world where so many people flock to the internet to learn of the latest trends and goings-on, a business must have a strong online presence. On Bell.ca, it is stated that “online marketing is a must for every business, no matter what industry you’re in.” But that doesn’t mean that you have to spend a bundle.

In fact, one of the biggest benefits of marketing your business online is that it is generally a lot cheaper to do than traditional modes of advertising. Take television commercials, for example. Most small business owners can’t afford to either create or broadcast them. It’s also hard to quantify exactly how effective they are. Thankfully, Bell provides some simple tips to help business owners effectively market their companies online.

Build your website so visitors can find the information they need. Bell admits that this tip sounds basic. But it’s a very important point to make. Some business websites simply don’t do the job they are supposed to. They are hard to navigate and unclear about how customers can make purchases. It’s important that your website makes it easy for customers to track you down.

Avoid cluttering the home page, says the Bell website. When you have too much content, things can get confusing. Provide just the essential information that online consumers can use to make wise buying decisions. Clearly, your site should be enticing to encourage them to spend their money on your brand. Showcase key products and services and make sure your contact information is easy to find.

Have a presence on other websites. If you think your website is the only place that customers should be able to find you online, you’re highly mistaken. There are a variety of things that you can do to ensure that your site gets noticed in other places on the internet. Bell suggests that you take measures to get your company noticed by sites that post customer reviews.

You may also want to post blogs on subjects related to your business. As you can tell, we do that, here at Synergy Marketing. We post blogs on a variety of topics that help our readers become more engaged with our brand. Just as importantly, it gives our website the opportunity to receive more hits in search engines. You should also register your site with such online directories as YellowPages.ca and Canpages.ca.

Optimize your website for search engines. This tip helps to highlight why blogs are so important. They help for you to continually add key words and links on your website that will help it to rank higher in search engine results. As Bell.ca points out, search engines analyze nearly every page on the internet to determine the content and relevancy to the terms that people type into their searches.
