Is it easy to find you online? If you strive to be successful on the internet, the answer needs to be a resounding “Yes!” If you are still struggling to have a web presence, or want bigger visibility, read on.
Many people think putting up their site is all that’s needed to have visibility. So many businesses make the mistake of believing that if they have a site up, they’re done. Sort of like the old saying, “build it and they will come.” I have to tell you, unless folks know where to find you, they ain’t gonna come!
It takes a little know-how!
You have to show people how to find your site. You have to teach them to follow you. Follow me?
Here are the top three ways to boost your online visibility:
- Blogging — Everybody is doing it (or trying to), but there are some secrets to making blogging work as a tool for visibility. Number one is be consistent. Blogging 3-4 times per week has the biggest effect on your traffic. The name of the game is bringing eyes to your site. Blogging works. Be consistent and persistent.
- Article Marketing – If you haven’t yet entered these waters, I can only ask, “why not?” If you can blog, you can write an article. Begin submitting to any of the article directories, such as EzineArticles, and you’ll start to see your visibility increase. Article marketing has the added bonus of establishing you as an “expert” in your niche.
- Social networking – You knew this one was coming! Right now, these are the absolute best opportunities around with the most bang for your buck. There’s zero cost involved and you can begin engaging with people immediately after signing up. Start with the big three, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Find people in your niche and let the conversations begin!
Boosting your online visibility is nothing more than getting out there and making yourself seen on the internet. You have complete control over putting yourself out there. Make up your mind that you do want people to find you, and get out there and be visible!
