Blog Page

A blog page on your website is an important component to helping you get more business! But who, after a hard days work, has time to write a blog post?  That’s probably the last thing you want to do. Your blog can help you:

  • Get new clients / customers

  • Communicate with your existing customers

  • Boost your search engine rankings – Google awards higher search result rankings to sites that are not stagnant, but have changing content.  Blogging regularly is one way to have some of the content of your website change.  When you commit to having a Blog Page, you must not let your Blog languish.  Google does not like that and your search engine rankings will plummet!  So, don’t procrastinate, start your blog and keep it going!

  • Establish yourself as an authority in your chosen line of business

  • Point to the work you’re doing and have done for others

Service Overview

We create a Blog page for your site, using your desired design options. We create placeholder Blog Posts with sample photos and videos, so you can see what the page looks like.  You will want to delete those placeholder posts, once your site goes live and you start doing your own blogging.

content editing

Content Editing

Editing is hard work! Focus on your business, not on editing content for your website.  Let us do the editing work!

content writing

Content Writing

Get your story heard! Writing is hard work! Focus on your business, not on writing content for your website.  Let us do the drafting and revision work and utilize the power of storytelling to hook your audience and stand out amongst the crowd!​

Use content to tell your brand stories in a way that is much subtler than what we are used to in advertising. Connect with people in the early stages of their journey with you by adding value.  Focus on adding value for your audience by being informative and entertaining first, and then you will have a much better chance of getting their attention.  Stories that connect with people will inspire them to think, feel and react with your brand, and move your business forward.  People love to tell and share stories.  If you deliver experiences that people value, they will share. Content sharing becomes powerful when there is social proof. And social proof is about people – not brands – sharing that content – compelling stories. Your website should enable people to easily share your website-resident stories on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest or other social media locations. When people share your stories, that shows that you are popular, active and well-liked. Remember that success breeds success.  This then gives you the opportunity to talk about yourself down the track.​

From notes supplied by you or through conversations with you where we take notes, we write effective text “copy” for pages, posts, products, benefits blurbs, feature blurbs, call-to-action boxes or other sections of a page.  You own the copyright for the text we draft. We revise the draft until you are satisfied.

Counter with Trendy Style

Counter with Trendy Style

Help build the credibility of your business!

Or provide text instead of numbers, if you wish.  Simply tell us what number or text you want colored, the color you want and the label you want underneath the number or text. We will make it happen.

google analytics goal conversion rate

Google Analytics Goal Setup

We setup a Goal within Google Analytics, so that you can track that Goal.

Google Analytics definition of a Goal

Use Goals to measure how often users complete specific actions.

“Goals measure how well your site or app fulfills your target objectives. A Goal represents a completed activity, called a conversion, that contributes to the success of your business. Examples of Goals include making a purchase (for an e-commerce site), completing a game level (for a mobile gaming app), or submitting a contact information form (for a marketing or lead generation site).

Defining Goals is a fundamental component of any digital analytics measurement plan. Having properly configured Goals allows Google Analytics to provide you with critical information, such as the number of conversions and the conversion rate for your site or app. Without this information, it’s almost impossible to evaluate the effectiveness of your online business and marketing campaigns.”

Goal Types are defined in Product Description, below.

google-apps-for-work

Google Apps for Work Setup

A domain-name email address is an address like:  myname@example.com for all email messages sent on behalf of the website: example.com, where “example.com” is a domain name you own (associated with you or the company you own).

A non-domain-name email address is an address like: myname@hotmail.com, @gmail.com, @yahoo.com, @comcast.com or @aol.com

  • Do you use a non-domain-name email address for your business?  Did you know that having a non-domain-name email address makes your business look non-professional, at best, and like a fly-by-night scam shop, at worst?
  • Do you know that when you use a non-domain-name email address to send email notifications from your site OR to use as the “From Address” in email marketing campaign, your email messages may not be delivered?  To protect against SPAM, fraudulent or harmful emails, both Yahoo and AOL have implemented strict “DMARC” policies that tell receiving servers  to reject any emails that weren’t sent through a Yahoo or AOL servers, respectively. Other email providers such as Gmail and Hotmail may soon adopt similar strict policies.  So, to make your email deliverability much more reliable, you should always use a domain-name email address for your business, using a domain name that you own.
  • Do you want your business to have a consistent brand — for all forms of your marketing and business communications: website, email address, business cards, newsletters and other forms of communication with your clients and leads?
  • Make your business appear more professional, add credibility to your business and make your brand shine

First, we setup your Google Apps for Work account using a professional email address that is based on your website domain: example.com, for example:

yourname@example.com

info@example.com

support@example.com

An email mailbox is where your email messages are stored and retrieved from.

An email alias is another email address that merely points to the email mailbox. Email aliases are good for small, one-person businesses to appear to have the presence of a larger business.

To get started, fill out the form below.

Image Optimization and Performance Test

Benefits

  • Retain site visitors: Studies show that slow websites cost visitors. If a web page does not load in 3 seconds or less, most visitors will leave your site and will likely visit a competitors site, instead.
  • Non-optimized images are a major contributing factor to slow page loads
  • Google ranks sites with fast page loads higher than slow sites. Optimized sites are more likely to be found by visitors in their Google search results
  • With our service, there is no need to purchase expensive image optimization software such as PhotoShop

Service

For faster page load time, we optimize, for web use, one image on your existing web page, without reducing the perceptible image quality. We optimize each image for the best mix of high quality and small size. PNG images have an improved weighted optimization that can offer better looking images with smaller file size.​​
This includes testing the page load time prior to optimization; resizing the photo/image upload and replace the photo or image on your website; test the page load time; then removing the old version of the photo/image from your website.  Includes a before/after report of page load time quantifying the page load time performance improvement.

encrypted communication using https ssl certificates

Site SSL (https) Certificate Setup

Benefits

  • Today’s internet can be dangerous if website owners don’t take the necessary steps to protect information. When your visitors buy something from you or submit personal information through a form, they’re sending their data out across the internet. Without proper protection like an SSL certificate, anyone with a bit of technical skill can pluck that information out of the internet midstream and then use it for their own ends. This is one of the leading methods of identity theft.
  • ​Your site is secured immediately with no waiting
  • We use one of the most trusted names in the certificate authority industry
  • Visitors to your site feel secure when they purchase your goods or services or submit sensitive information in forms.
  • An SSL certificate will keep your site visitors information safe as it travels between their computer and your website server.
  • We use state of the art encryption (256-bit to 2058-bit key length) providing level of safety on par with your bank or other financial institution
  • Domain-level validation is used meaning the certificate authority validates your company prior to issuing the certificate.
  • High trust level. Browsers know your site is safe and your visitors know too.

Service

We obtain an SSL certificate and configure your site for traffic encryption (https) between user’s web browser and the site (add SSL certificate to site).​ We then spot-check-test your site for https-based URL operation, to make sure your site continues to operate correctly under SSL.

If your site uses WooCommerce, we setup your site so that only your checkout, my-account and backend pages are https.

This service provides one SSL Certificate for one domain in one of these forms:

  • example.com + www.example.com
  • subdomain.example.com + www.subdomain.example.com

If you need, instead, a certificate form multiple subdomains, please contact us for a quote.
