Websites Increase Your Marketing

Posted in Websites on December 31st, 2010 by C2G

Marketing is all about how you present yourself to the outside world. Now that 2011 is arriving it is vital for your organization to establish yourself in the online realm. Nowadays people can make 6 figure incomes from a beach across the world and of course a laptop or ipad. Now cell phones are offering video chat capabilities that let people stay in contact like never before.

With your website you can add coupons, display your work, stay in touch with your customers, sell your products or services, and so much more. The best way to get your site up is to contact a liable company and have them help you design your site, from the artwork to the flow and even the SEO, or search engine optimization. A local company can actually work more exclusively with you than an online web design site that costs a monthly fee. Some people want to just get online so they take the cheap route and go with a company that never contacts you, but they let you design a cheap looking site that puts you online. There is nothing wrong with that but if you can afford the money to invest in yourself or your company then it is always better to get a custom designed site from a local company with experience.

People in the Harrisburg area can search Harrisburg website design and they can see every company that pops up. Choose wisely and make sure you put enough content into your site that will keep your customers coming back for more information, more products, and more exciting new things you post online, such as pictures, videos, and other media.

A website consists of many facets that the average person doesn’t even realize.  If you are looking to find a local company feel free to search at http://www.tradeseam.com/ to see who they recommend for you.  Trade Seam may not have the type of company you are looking for, but it is a good place to start to get some ideas of what companies have to offer.

After you find a company or a list of companies you are interested in make sure you see how they charge and what services they offer.  You may want a company that does it all or you may want to find a few different companies that specialize in certain coding, SEO, graphics/logo design, etc.  Just know that the way you market yourself online could play a big part in how many customers you bring your way.  Stay current online and keep your site fresh so people continue to come back for more.  We will get into different ways to keep your site updated in a future post.  Thanks for reading and have a Happy New Year!

The Future of Websites

Posted in Websites on June 7th, 2010 by C2G

Websites are more popular than you were in high school these days. Everyone and their dogs are going online on a daily basis and companies are not taking advantage of this vast amount of resources they have for communicating with their customers. Even this blog is a way to reach out to people and most companies won’t take the time out of their “busy” schedules to focus on an open communication website.

The future of websites is not in the site itself. It is all on getting people involved with participation within the site. Facebook is one of the most popular websites in the world and it is all because it gives us an opportunity to communicate with one another whenever we want. People can share pictures, jokes, worthless knowledge about what they are currently doing, and anything else that is on their minds. I don’t see Facebook going anywhere anytime soon.

Now is the time to get a website for whatever it is that you do and start building in this virtual world of opportunity. Starting a website is actually harder than it seems though.  Anybody can start a website but it takes a true pi0neer to stand out and work at keeping it up to date unlike the common website owner.  You have to keep up with your updates, including new products, new information about your field or work, forum discussions, blog entries, pictures, etc.  If you don’t use it you lose it applies to every situation with a website.  No updates to your site will slowly decline your hits and your unique visitors.

The future of websites will definitely be determined by how you can include the people visiting your site in your line of work.  Remember that it is important to constantly update your site.  Keep in mind that quality is also very important as unimportant information will not give your current visitors a reason to come back.  We have the world at our fingertips and we don’t even know it.  A small town business owner can multiply his or her profits my the 1000’s just by putting their products on the web so that they can be sold internationally.

When you are ready to launch your site and take it serious please come back and post your web address in the Cater2theGame forum.  We would love to check it out and spread it out to our visitors.  Please leave a comment if you have any questions as to how you could make your site more interactive.  We will gladly help in any way we can.  Hopefully, as we continue to build the Cater2theGame website, we can build up the site to where it is very interactive and very thorough so you continue to come back and visit us.  Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to read the C2G Blog.  See you next time!
