We suggest these 3 online marketing strategy tips to get your North Bay start-up business moving in the right direction.

  1. Get your North Bay business noticed with a great website.
    Running your own business isn’t easy and your to-do-list can seem daunting at times. But, you should never use this as an excuse to take short cuts when it comes to your online presence. Getting online visibility starts with your business website. It’s vital to position your small business online with a strong, professional and memorable North Bay website experience that gives customers the brand impression you mean to achieve and make your target customers want to engage more with your business.
  2. Focus on your SEO (search engine optimization) efforts o stand out from competitors.
    Search engines take the information a user types into the search bar and locate the most relevant websites using those keywords. In other words, if you are not engaging in your SEO efforts, your North Bay Business is not going to show up on that first page of search results – but your competitors will!

Your North Bay start-up or small business will be missing out on big opportunities without a consistent and well branded social media presence.
