SurfYourName may be a web design firm, but we also put strong emphasis on supporting other businesses we work with as much as possible. There are a lot of avenues of exposure when trying to promote yourself, and while your website is important, it’s also important to put your name out there in other ways. Whether that be involvement with social media, email marketing, or SEO. Figuring out how easy it is for customers to find you is important, and the best way to start doing that is by making a Google and Facebook business page.
The importance of making Google and Facebook business pages are monumental, especially considering how much you get out of it for the cost. For example, developing a Facebook Business page is a remarkably simple way to put your business in public consciousness. One of the most common uses of the internet is for social media. So being able to promote yourself on one of these major sites are a boon to keep yourself relevant, as while people may not visit your site daily, they do with Facebook. So being active on your Facebook Business page gives people “daily reminders” of your business. Plus, the added benefit of developing an outreach using algorithms and “word of mouth” using likes and shares on your social media posts.
Meanwhile, with Google business page as another example, you’re using Google. The leading search engine in the entirety of the internet, when you list yourself on Google, you’re reaching out to over five billion searches per day. With the benefits of being able to show where your business is located on Google Maps, it gives you a lot of relevancy locally as well. Since people are more inclined to look for businesses close by, being able to see more about the business in a convenient place to search like Google is extremely helpful.
All of these features, all easily accessible and available on the biggest websites out there without putting a huge dent in your wallet.
