Online business marketing is a blog to keep you up to date with all the latest internet trends and to market your business to the next level.
There are things you must do and many you should do.
Let’s start at the beginning and move through the things that will make a difference.
- Websites and SEO
- Mobile-friendly site
- Contact detail
- YouTube and list growth strategies
- Social media
- Emails and Newsletter
- Extra training
Internet marketing has changed and even more so it is changing regularly so you really need to be on top of the game.
Your Webpage is the front door to your business
So, if it is not correct you may as well hang up the old “Closed for today sign”
There are new and important issues here and ones you simply must do.
Your Website, SEO and customer contact
We will show you the ways to make your website move the lookers to customers with simple tricks and tools.
The internet has changed and you need to change with it and understand how you can increase your chances in business.
Every business should have a website, and on that, we will all agree but businesses should have a site that works for them.
I have written more on this in an attached blog where you can read further information on webpages
WebPages are there to sell your products or knowledge. They are not to be confused with other media and must dominate on their own.
They are the entrance to your world.
First of all, if you are not Mobile friendly you miss up to 50% of the action.
You can check your site at Mobile checker
Next is your telephone number and address above the fold.
Often when I am out I need to seek a company on my mobile. Nothing is more annoying than having to search for an address. Make sure your site is correctly set up from day one.
I looked at struggling businesses and provided a few remedies for them
Finally in this section is:
You should have a call to action button to buy.
That is my brief summary of your number one item.
Current training is important to every business owner. I use and recommend the free package at Wealthy Affiliate
Next, we look at SEO
The basis of every website is SEO performance.
This was once the domain of the wizards and now a few easy steps can take you to the top.
We discuss this further on one of our pages based on SEO for business
You can do SEO yourself in many situations provided you follow a few basic rules.
Your page title or domain needs to be in your Meta title and a couple of times through the site. Simple stuff but most often forgotten.
Your heading starts high and flow down to low and don’t jump all over the place. Often a disaster.
Your pictures all need alt tags with a description or your Keyword.
Ok, that is just the key points so you should learn them all at SEO for business
The number two search engine is now YouTube
The rise of YouTube has been significant in that it is now searched nearly as many times as Google.
They search for content that,
Shows your brand
Information on how to do things
A lead puller to your market.
This must be part of your tool kit and we include a free Video Maker
List growth strategies
The value of a list to a business is worth many thousands of dollars. Not just in earnings income but as a sales asset.
You must build a valued list and use it often to entertain and to create Know and Like values for customers to return time and time again.
I have written more on this at list growth and it is wealth worth a read
Next is social media and what it means to you
This is a long and interesting subject on
Social media and needs your consistent attention.
My first lesson here is that whatever medium you choose it must be current.
We often search Social media to get a feeling behind a business, Who is Who, what they do that style of thing.
Going to a site that is neglected quickly turns us off and we most often move on.
You don’t have to do every media but you must do some.
LinkedIn is a must-do. It might not sell or entertain but many use it as a contact builder.
The most growth is probably coming from Instagram as the young and trendy surge ahead.
Understand this media to win an audience
Facebook is still the largest of the media groups and works a treat when worked well.
Finally, Twitter is also a current flyer. Would you dispute Donald Trump who has made it an Artform?
Email is still a front line product
Here we look at your everyday emails and what they can do for you
Then we move to bulk emails and the reasons and ways to benefit
Probably the most important tool in your market and why you must use them. Newsletters work
Plus we will look at list building and the importance to your brand.
There are no emails without a list.
One of the best assets you can have if you do it properly
The use of SMS in your business
The single-use SMS from a computer
Bulk SMS and instant satisfaction
Inbound SMS for time-saving and customer benefit

Hi, I am Peter Hanley a long-time small and medium business owner. Ten or so years ago I decided I had to get a handle on this Internet stuff and just how it impacted my business.
Quite frankly I got sick of people telling me how to fix these issues then issuing big bills for their overrated time. $10k for a Website, $800 a month for SEO I was getting ripped off and I got sick off it.
They would tell me things in mystical ways that I had no way of understanding and could only nod my head in agreement.
So I chose the path of knowledge a path that would give me insight in knowing what I wanted.
Yes, I still employ some people but now I tell them what I want not what they think and get them to quantify the results.
I was free of uncertainty and free of large bills to build my business.
Admittedly times have changed and the Internet is now much easier to understand and to use and that is a benefit to you.
However, the internet is now much more important than ever before and it is a get in or gets out of style situation.
So let’s get you in and running your own destiny with a little help from me and my friends at the
