How essential is it to measure a SEO campaign performance? The answer is VERY. If not, you will end up spending randomly and shooting in the dark.

Why do we need to track SEO Performance?

When you implement a SEO campaign through keyword targeting, backlinks or otherwise, you aim to generate SEO traffic. In other words, drive customers who search for specific keywords to a SEO-optimised landing page and convert those leads to sales. The impact of this campaign is measurable, and the SEO performance is trackable. As important as measuring SEO performance is, it is not a simple job. Because it requires certain SEO metrics, such as SEO keyword ranking. And we get those through analytics. We use certain tools to gather and analyse data about website usage; for example, Google Analytics or Moz.

How do we track SEO performance?

The course of action in order to measure SEO performance is quite simple: We first collect a few information on the company which should give a general idea of how it performs already. Then, we provide a SEO Key Performance Questionnaire which will allow an in-depth analysis. Later, we address more issues in order to prepare a thorough SEO plan. This plan includes Core Business Goals, Business KPI, SEO goals, SEO KPIs and strategy.

The first and most important Core Business Goal is Maximising Customer Acquisition. So, our SEO expert team focus on SEO goals with all the tasks necessary to maximise customer acquisition.  We ask ourselves some basic questions: Who? What? Where? When? Why? How? We then draw a plan to respond to these questions in line with the Business Goals and KPIs set by the company. Our SEO experts’ goal is to maximise customer acquisition through organic searches in a specific time. They, therefore, apply 5 short, mid or long term KPIs for each Company’s Core Business Goal . A Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is a known metric in business and displays the current performance level towards achieving the Core Business Goals. We use at least 5 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in every Company Core Goal; All these information are included in the SEO plan, which is basically a strategic map.

5 critical KPIs of SEO Performance for # Maximise Customer Acquisition – Core Business Goal

  • SEO Traffic KPI measuring the number of visits to your website as a result of organic search traffic.
  • Keywords KPI assessing the room available for improvement in search rankings. We achieve that when we compare your keyword rankings to Google’s estimated search traffic volume and competition rating.
  • Organic Search Trafic KPI This is the traffic segment called organic search traffic.
  • Keyword Click-Through Rate metrics evaluate how often your listings generate clicks in proportion to the number of times your listing appears in search results. While keyword ranking metrics are crucial for SEO analytics, keyword click-through rates demonstrate how effective your listings are at prompting clicks.
  • Content evaluation KPI is extremely useful for SEO experts. They monitor how effective and valuable the content is for your business.

These metrics are all external KPIs. That means they are available to the customers. In addition to those, there are internal KPIs, useful to SEO experts in tracking SEO Performance. They utilise them in order to fine-tune the SEO strategy to meet the Core Business Goal.

SEO services are always a Win-Win, if done right. Our SEO experts have proven results and can rightfully brag on their successes.

It may occur to everybody whilst reading SEO offers, that the different SEO services London or professionals are becoming somewhat blurry. SEO consultants are claiming to be able to offer services more in line with that of a search engine marketer or an Internet marketer. What is the truth about SEO?
SEO SERVICES
Search engine optimisation (SEO) is traditionally linked with on page factors. The off-page activity is mainly focused in the creation of backlinks.A search engine optimiser is concerned with making your web pages as search friendly as possible. This will include fixing broken links and amending orphan pages or faulty redirects. The SEO expert should also look at your pages content and ensure the correct tags are been used ie. meta, css, <h> tags and alt for images. He may even venture into keyword research and ensure the keyword weight of your pages is the most effective. Backlinks are of great importance too. He should create as many as you need to increase visibility in Internet. In addition, he should take care of a great number of technical issues which are also important to build your ranking on search engines.
SEM SERVICES

A search engine marketer (SEM) is slightly different and the primary concern should be with, how your site links to the rest of the Internet world. They should focus on social bookmarking, article marketing, search engine and directly submissions. All this in attempt to attract more links and therefore increases your page rank and index ranks. An Internet marketer is more business focused and will explore advertising options, press releases, PPC systems and paid exposure. They will attempt to build up your business as a brand as well as bumping you up the listings. They should be able to advise you on affiliate programs and email marketing as well as highlighting any other elements of online revenue you could take advantage of.

SEO SERVICES LONDON -THE TRUTH

It is important to understand that both are optimising SEO with  different perspectives and to different platforms. The starting and returning point should be the webpage. ” The webpage should be their harbour” as SEO consultants usually say. Both are performing the SEO strategy , but every case is different and  should be customised. Increasing online visibility and driving targeted traffic are the first steps to success with SEO. The next step is measuring the performance of that traffic to determine whether the overall website and business objectives are being achieved. This is an ongoing, iterative process that will always accompany all marketing efforts, and SEO is no exception. For most organisations, goals are defined as generating sales, leads, or advertising revenue. For others, it may mean the promotion of a particular message. It may also means the consumption, sharing, or perhaps the creation of specific types of content, or the simple signup for a newsletter. An important component of SEO is to deliver not just traffic, but targeted  traffic that has the possibility of converting into these actions.

CONCLUSION

Whether you are selling products and services, advertising for branding value, or trying to promote specific content to the world, a well-designed SEO strategy can result in a very high return on investment when contrasted with other methods of marketing. As you see on top image, SEO generally brings a higher ROI when compared to TV, print, and radio advertising campaigns. On the other hand SEO is not going to replace traditional media. Organic search can provide some high margin returns that complement and enhance the use of offline media. Especially when done properly over the long haul.

Whitewash SEO services London based, include all the above consultants. All SEO services will be a great investment and it will be up to you to decide what your business needs the most. ” SEO is a Win to Win Game” Let’s do it. – Written by George Nikolakos

Turnaround management halts the erosion, by introducing revitalisation programs consolidating profitability and cash flow with cut cost policies, downsizing assets and controlling cash flow. Besides, transformation which is the essential task of the turnaround manager, includes a vision of new market opportunities, new supply networks and distribution channels.  In order to  capitalise these opportunities and fight against the causes of the decline, you need a primary tool avoiding any conflict with consolidation. This is web designing

it sounds strange, but it isn’t. Let’s examine what makes web designing such a powerful tool in turnaround management:

Firstly, it conduces to the company transformation from local functionality, to a national or international  presence, anticipating more and more profitability by new customers. Many old-thinking business owners believe that, since they conduct most of their businesses locally  (in the neighborhood), then there is really no need to develop an online firm’s presence with smart, new web designing ideas. Web design writes off skills and distribution networks which are absolute. Unfortunately keeping the old  ideas,  companies who do not sell online, they are in no need of developing a website. This is a serious mistake.  It is essentially important whether you are an ecommerce business or not, to keep an online presence.

Secondly, advertising the business online on the web, known as online marketing, is the greatest and most interactive advertising tool between marketers and the public at large, that the business can ever use . Every company should get it right, revitalizing old websites or reining back old promotional spend by new web designing ideas that are even greater than any other traditional advertisement method you may think of. Nevertheless, “strong SEO push-ups” will also assist the company to take over the lead.

Thirdly, the delay between expenditure and return in turnaround procedure is long. However, cost effectiveness, utilising a campaign strategy at the lowest possible cost and risk investment, keeps an online presence, makes it shorter and saves a lot of the money that would have been spent in other traditional advertising methods.   This why the expenses for a new website easily pass the threshold of the consolidation cut costs. Creating a website or restoring an old one, helps keeping an online presence in a very affordable way for any business unlike the radio and television advertising methods. Still, on the use of a website in advertising, it’s just possible to advertise  anything in stock, unlike the common advertising methods where you are very restricted as to what it can be advertised

Fourthly, it is very possible that via a well tuned web designing, a business can maintain an online presence for a preconsent of  the manager’s expectations, even before a customer visit his installations. This will help the company to retain the positive recognition in the market and rebuilt loyalty towards customers. This is also an opportunity of which the smart players expand ecommerce revenue opportunities. Businesses in turnaround procedure need to embrace this opportunity as web design makes their customers ready for business.

Last but not least, web design, with new search engines crawlers’ techniques, makes it easy to notify the business address in a more efficient way. Reallity indicates that, the classical yellow pages and print directories will be soonabolished. This is because clients find  business online easier to than looking through the old fashioned catalogues. It is way better ensuring they can find the business that gives the best deal, compared to locating businesses in the  yellow pages.

There are many tools for business turnaround managers in today’s very competitive business environment. Web design builds up new competences and help managers to accomplish short term or intermediate challenges to broaden their market and sharhttps://whitedash.com/services/web-design/es, leading to overall profitability. Web designing is a milestone marking the company progress. Therefore business owners who are in a decisive strategic dilemma for facing the crisis and have not yet taken action on this, should rise – rebuilt and design websites for the businesses ASAP.

Browsers: What do they have in common (except maybe for being the “internet button”)? They can’t distinguish malicious content from benign. As this flaw had to be tackled, content security was introduced.

What cause content to become malicious?
Much of this malicious content can either be cross-site scripting (XSS) or clickjacking. Clickjacking, as the term suggests, is a form of hiding a hyperlink in another website’s clickable content. This way, the user is lured to actions he is unaware of and makes clicks he never intents. Cross-site scripting on the other hand, can prove a lot more dangerous as it accounts for 84% of security issues. Cross-site scripting falls into the category of code injection as the malicious person embeds content in the website and accesses all information under the umbrella of the legitimate site.

These two constitute the most common attackers of a website bypassing the same origin policy. This policy, is an important security aspect of the web world as its mechanism is that it links two web pages only if they share the same origin. In practice, that means that if someone injects malicious content in one web page it cannot access another page’s information.

What can I do as a beginner
This model ensures data confidentiality as the website owner provides secure, trusted and hence whitelisted sources of content and covers a wide array of types such as HTML5, JavaScript, CSS, images, audio files and many others. The Content Security Policy standard allows owners to predefine the content of their website whether it ‘d be inline scripts, or resources. Each page can have a standard security policy in order to minimise the damage in such cases where an attacker has already injected malicious content. For example, there are many ways the owner can specify which content is safe and hence which  one can load in each page without problems. The most usual among those are:

1) Trust only scripts from the same source via HTTPS
2) Images loaded should come from a particular CDN
3) Frames or inline scripts should not be allowed
4) Only allow fonts from Google Fonts

Content security standard was first introduced in 2004 and has evolved accordingly ever since, with the majority of browsers complying with it.

TECHNOLOGY MAKES EVERYTHING SO MUCH EASIER THESE DAYS. MOST PEOPLE WALK AROUND WITH A PHONE IN THEIR HAND. HAVE YOU REALISED THAT HALF YOUR LIFE IS IN THERE? YOU CAN MANAGE YOUR CORRESPONDENCE AND BANK ACCOUNTS, YOUR SOCIAL LIFE AND SHOPPING ALL VIA A MOBILE APP.

WHAT IS MOBILE APP DEVELOPMENT?

A mobile app is relatively simple in concept. It is a software developed to work on mobile devices.

Their development is like the development of a web app or a website. Their main difference, however, is that mobile applications benefit from mobile device features that are unavailable to other devices. Also, the offline functionality and info access amounts for a great deal of the mobile apps’ rising success.

There are various operating systems for instance iOS, Android, RIM and Windows Mobile. Although these systems all serve the same purpose, they have different requirements nonetheless.

A creative agency is always able to advice which is better and more cost-effective.

 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BUILD A MOBILE APP?

The cost of developing a mobile app varies depending on what you want to do. First things that determine the price are the purpose of the app and the available budget. A mobile app could be a game, an informational guide, a social medium, or a shop. Your budget will allow you the development of as many features as it can sustain.

Then comes deciding the platform your app is going to run on. Also, the market you are in and the creative agency you appoint for the development will reflect on the overall price. So, in simple terms an app can start from as low as £15,000 and rise up to £1,000,000 if your project is ambitious and the work is demanding (and possibly carried out by a giant company).

HOW DOES WHITEDASH DEVELOP APPS?

WhiteDash develops apps as stand-alone projects or complementing existing websites. Usually part of a combo solution, a mobile app contributes to an overall marketing strategy. They take into consideration your needs and the necessary actions for your project. They create bespoke features and implement an award-winning technology. The Pocketwarp.

Lead generation is probably the biggest challenge for anyone in business. Depending on the nature of your business, there are many ways to generate leads, both online and offline.

Offline methods include traditional mail, business cards, flyers and leaflets, as well as TV and radio commercial adverts and billboards, and so on. Online lead generation requires a website, fully optimised for Search engines. If your website cannot be found by the top search engines, including Google, Yahoo, and MSN, then you are passing up some valuable lead generation.

Undoubtedly, you need these high score results in search engines to increase targeted visibility. The most effective method to increase visibility, generate leads, provide them a snapshot of your business and finally transform them to new customers is SEO. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is considered to be one of the most cost effective promotional tools in the marketing repository of a business for generating a higher volume of targeted visibility. Effective Website Optimisation ensures that your website presents exceptional value to the user experience, thereby appreciating in value to the Search Engines. However, the real truth about SEO is that effectiveness heavily relies on website content, competition, and many factors connected with website structure and design.

SEO is not the “magic one pill solution”. Especially, when you have some visibility and no leads. The most sophisticated answer might be  ….. “Think out of the box”. It is wise to think in this way, but before doing that; you need to make sure you follow the basics. Just do the Maths.

LEAD GENERATION = SEO + BASICS

Firstly you need a fast webpage. It is essential  that your site now supports mobile web-design and the capability to load each page in less than 2 sec time. If not, you shoot in the dark. You urgently need to repair it.

Secondly, make sure that your web page supports the following:

Blog or News Articles: One of the popular techniques used is article marketing. It involves drafting interesting and informative articles, which provide information or knowledge pertaining to a particular topic or subject. The SEO optimised articles are used to generate leads by making use of a properly drafted “Call to action” which enables the visitors to provide their contact information.

Contact forms: Although many people think that a website contact form just sits there and doesn’t serve any major purpose, in fact, it is exactly the opposite. It is one of the few ways in which your target audience members have to be able to connect with you and to begin to interact. It is a search tool, customer assistance and a nice place to inform everybody for your working hours.

 Emails: It is essential to have one or more business emails from the webpage. Almost all servers provide that capability however have you ever think of continuity between email and website. You always need to make the proper signature with the webpage link and mostly provide links from your webpage.

Call back requests: It is a nice to have capability, so you are able to select the time of communication and it is a strong indication that this is a call of potential customer. It is a well hidden secret that your website’s level of ranking is all a matter of trust – search engines want to see that you are following the rules of online engagement and that you are a real business that will be around for a long time to show CommitmentHonestyInvestment and Consistency.

Appointment booking: Online self-scheduling works in much the same manner as other online transactions. Individuals will access it, view availability, choose the date and times they desire, supply required contact information, and then finalize the appointment. It may seems a “nice to have” capability but it is essential as it gives the picture of a robust – time saving business, who respects its clients as the whole process can take as little as a few minutes from home, office and “on the go.

Newsletter sign ups: Newsletters and email marketing are today’s booming Internet marketing strategies. Make sure you have an email newsletter management service set up for your website allowing users to easily sign up for your emails. If you have it already, continue writing quality content and providing value to your visitors. Offer free goodies for subscribing. It’s not so difficult to write an eBook and offer it to your visitors who subscribe for your newsletters from your website. People love free and quality stuff. Write guest posts for other top blogs to make sure you promote your blog and articles to other famous blogs as well. This will introduce you and your website to more potential subscribers. All these tricks will certainly improve your subscription rates and leads of course.

Live chat: Live chat in a website play an important part in targeting potential customers and boost up your sales as well as revenue. According to new researches, having live customer support is one of the best practices for customer development. The reason however, is the cost-effective of the solution for website owners based on which they can fulfill the demands of their customers and add value to their business. Once a visitor has a chat session with your operator, you have a permanent record of contact information and you can stay connected by informing about your services or upcoming marketing .

Social interaction: Social media is where your contacts are; therefore you need to have more than a static web presence in your company wants to stay competitive online. Besides acquiring new customers, social media can drive traffic to the existing company website and can convert prospects and customers into ‘brand advocates’.

These are the main gates for leads online communication with your company. These are so-called ” The Basics”. If you have them inherited already, let SEO experts to do their job. Just ask them to find out the correct user intent keywords and  leads will come.

SUCCESS TIPS FOR SMALL BUSINESSES https://whitedash.com/success-tips-for-small-businesses/ https://whitedash.com/success-tips-for-small-businesses/#respond Wed, 22 Nov 2017 16:01:08 +0000 https://whitedash.com/?p=1841 According to statistics released by the UK government in 2016, Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) account for 99.3% of all private...

The post SUCCESS TIPS FOR SMALL BUSINESSES appeared first on Digital Presence 360° London.

Is there a single right strategy for success in small businesses?

According to statistics released by the UK government in 2016, Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) account for 99.3% of all private sector businesses. They produce 47% of its turnover (1.8 trillion £) *. These numbers show the enormous potential of a small business. However, there is a key to success and profit.

The marketplace depends heavily on computers. That is why  it is essential nowadays to have a website but also make your business a powerful online body. Is this enough? Now, a lot of people might argue that a decent-looking website and two social media accounts are enough. Unfortunately, this is not even remotely true. What a do-it-yourself (DIY) website lacks, is the insight of a professional in creating and maintaining a full sales cycle. A beautiful photograph looks pleasing to our eyes, but it will not bring profit. This is because a website is indeed a tool that can increase traffic, engage clients and establish loyalty.

There are a few techniques with which we can ensure success. Naturally, SMEs cannot compete with the big players in pricing or brand recognition and rather invest in the quality of service. This quality of service must move onward. Is it logical, since customers tend to choose brands based on their own browsing experience. Whitedash, a London web creative agency,  introduce an easy breakdown of the important steps to success . These steps are Analysis, Design, Development, Security and finally Promotion.

Analysis attempts to understand the market and utilises big data effectively. Ultimately, these data reveal the trends and patterns in the market and demonstrate a business’s true potential. It is the web creative agency’s duty to understand the business’s goals and respond accordingly, bringing all the pieces together.

This understanding is reflected on the Design. A website is the first impression of your business. Much like the first impression works for people, it is crucial to establish a distinguishing digital business identity. A graphic designer can make an equally appealing design but without the bigger picture an agency has, it might prove useless.

In addition to the design, Development is also important. It is the component that turns beauty into function. It ensures the interactivity with your audience and complements the design in creating an effective user experience. Web development is a process that establishes recurring clientele and contributes to a database of loyal customers.

WhiteDash focuses on Security, which shouldn’t be disregarded. It might seem tempting to cut security and maintenance budget first, once a website or an e-shop is up-and-running. Do not forget that you are a fish in an ocean with sharks. Therefore, an SME should be able to tackle all malicious activity, protect its content, and continuously optimise its performance. Doing so, will increase the business’s online reputation and make promotion a lot easier.

Again, Promotion is not simply achieved with a Facebook account and it’s not magic either. Social media allow businesses to interact with customers and promote themselves online. Nevertheless, surveys show that big businesses are more likely to interact on social networks rather than their smaller counterparts. This is because they know how to do it. And this is not a matter of means, just a result of serious marketing. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is not a myth of using keywords as mantras. It facilitates the user and the search engines finding the content they truly need. A web creative agency can provide a full promotion package tailored to the needs of a small business. More importantly, it can tailor it to meet the business’s available budget.

Long story made short: budget spent for these five steps is budget well-spent. For a look at success stories and how Whitedash web creative agency helped check their Cases.
