Several business owners are blissfully unaware of the simple fact that traffic from search engines like Google can take their New Orleans business to the next level. OneIMS is a full-service internet marketing company and we can apply time-tested and results-oriented search engine optimization (SEO) strategies to drive more customers to your business –at times, this traffic from search engines will be more than the traffic your website gets from any other online source. If you feel that your business website is not getting as many hits (as originally envisaged), our New Orleans SEO services will prove to be highly instrumental.
Only proven strategies will work while optimizing the websites for search engines and the end users. Google is constantly releasing various algorithm updates to fine-tune the results it shows when people search for specific information about products and services. This can, in fact, explain the ever-changing SEO landscape; SEO techniques that worked last year might be futile today. This also tells us that enforcing unique tried-and-tested strategies will help you to dominate the competition by taking over the search engine results page i.e. SERP. Our SEO results usually speak for themselves and we have access to some of the best ways to promote different websites online.
Here you’ll be able to learn more about our SEO services in New Orleans.
Website Design and Development in New Orleans
The custom web design services available from our end help you to get tailored websites that do not simply take up space on the internet but instead effectively convert casual visitors to long-term customers. We do website design and development with definite purposes and to achieve your business goals/objectives. A beautiful website does not serve its purpose if it fails to convert users into customers. The website we design will achieve better results for your business because we take the time to learn more about your industry and its target customers.
We can set up a business site from scratch, or we can look at your existing website to weed out its SEO deficiencies. As no two businesses are alike (even if they cater to the same set of customers), it is critical to look for a web design company that takes a custom approach to each of their clients/projects. Our team will pay attention to the design inputs coming from your end and use them as the driving force in all the decisions they take. Google wants websites to fulfill certain criteria; for instance, they expect every website to be user-friendly.
People are quick to judge the credibility of your business merely by glancing at your website. After all, this is the first place they will decide to check when they hear about your products/services. The results-based approach undertaken by our team of designers and developers will, in fact, benefit your business. Focusing on both the brand and the user grants us the ability to design a cohesive website that the target audience will love to spend their time browsing! Just think of this website as an important extension of your brand image and professionalism.
Responsive web design is also another mantra we hold on to while building websites. With the number of people preferring to browse the internet using various handheld devices like smartphones, Google now uses mobile-friendliness of websites as an important aspect while ranking them. Your website needs to look and function great –regardless of the platforms used by the end users to view it.
New Orleans SEO Keyword Research Services
Keywords form the basis of SEO campaigns and perhaps that could explain why several SEO experts think of keyword research and analysis as an established concept that plays an important role in shaping up the search engine ranking of your business website. Keyword research is the process of finding out all the keywords that your end users are using online while searching for your products or services. Quite often, we have found business owners making plans about improving their visibility online, without paying any attention to keyword research and analysis process. If you feel that your efforts are going down the drain, talk to us to yield the desired results!
So, how exactly do our keyword research services work? We start with competitive keyword research and analysis. The strategies deployed by your competitors enable us to get a general idea about the keywords that work and the ones that do not work. There exists an intricate relationship between the search volume and quality of the keywords selected to optimize your website. Did you know that certain low search volume terms (long tail keywords) are useful for improving your organic visibility dramatically? And because the established players hardly go after long tail keywords (which, by the way, has better probabilities for converting visitors), it puts your business at an advantageous position right from the get-go.
Long gone are those days when top SEO experts could stuff a couple of keywords throughout the website content and stop for the day. Today, Google pays attention to the relevancy of keywords. In other terms, the keyword phrases selected by being extremely pertinent; this allows us to highlight your website exclusively to all those who are genuinely interested in your products/services. Our keyword research services are also applicable when it comes to optimizing your website to appear more frequently in the local search results. We will look at local SEO in depth later.
Conversion Rate Optimization
Conversion rate optimization (CRO) deals with increasing the effectiveness of your business website so that it can optimally convert casual visitors to long-term customers. If you find that people are converting soon after checking out your website, then our CRO services can help. We understand the plight of several New Orleans business owners who struggle to turn traffic into leads. After assessing your website, we can find and weed out all the problem areas so that the rate of conversion increases dramatically.
We usually kick-start the process by auditing your website; a website conversion expert will be looking at the site to find all the factors that are preventing people from converting. Quite often we have come across simple aspects like the layout or content of the landing pages being the common culprit. In such instances, we can fix the design/architecture of the landing pages while our content developers will create the content most suited for the same page. This landing page plays a crucial role in establishing a strong value proposition for your products/services.
Add a compelling call to action (CTA) within the page and you are all set to convert the maximum amount of people in the least amount of time. To optimize the conversion rates, we carry out A/B split testing to determine the landing pages most liked by your target audience. With the help of tools like Google Analytics, it is very much possible to find out the flow of traffic throughout the website –including the different web pages. Our website conversion experts have worked on optimizing the websites that deal with different markets/industries. This experience enables them to offer superior quality service to facilitate the growth of your business.
Social Media Management Services in New Orleans
As mentioned earlier, your business profile will always be unique and it is important to create/maintain a sizable presence in the different social media platforms available during these times. All the social channels work in a seamless manner to augment the capabilities of the digital marketing campaign undertaken by our team of experts. And as expected business owners are slow when it comes to realizing the potentials of having a social media presence. This is primarily because of the simple fact that they hardly have the time or the proper resources to manage their social media marketing activities.
After analyzing your business and its offerings, our team can come up with a social media strategy and content creation process. And because we apply some of the latest social media strategies to your social accounts, it is easy for our team to increase the number of people following your business pages while maximizing brand awareness. Gaining revenue becomes a secondary process when we post curated content to entice and encourage your followers to support your business. Although there are several social media websites out there, not all of them will help your business.
One of our core responsibilities is to market/advertise your business only on social media channels that will produce measurable results with the passage of time. Along with developing social media strategies, we can help with the process of setting up the different social media profiles for your business. It is important to monitor what the people are saying in these networks and moderate unwanted comments posted by people bent on destroying your business operation. We will also help with posting status updates and developing tailored content designed to meet up with the desires of your followers.
Advertising in the social media platforms comes with its own share of advantages. For instance, it can effectively increase brand awareness and user engagement levels because we make use of the data available directly from social media. Armed with this basic information about the users, it is easy to find out their interests and how they spend their time online –which allows us to craft an advertising strategy designed to generate better ROI for your business. If you have always wanted to target your ideal audience, social media advertising can help. We can locate that ideal customer and design a compelling ad copy to turn them into lucrative leads.
A persuasive New Orleans SEO campaign will hold equal importance to on-page and off-page optimization. Link building is a form of off-page optimization technique that has managed to cause quite a lot of controversies during the past few years. This is the process of building a robust network of inbound links to your business site. We can acquire backlinks from valuable online sources and use them to improve the search engine visibility of your site. At this point, we would like to point out the fact that there are no shortcuts to acquiring links. Google now gives weight to the quality of the inbound links—rather than the quantity.
A natural approach is necessary to build and maintain your link portfolio. It is pivotal to make the links look natural within the context of the website. One of the competent ways with the help of which we build your link portfolio is via guest posting. Our copywriters and editors can create highly articulate and compelling articles that we post on other domains with a link back to your site. Others will want to link to our remarkable content and this usually works to our advantage. The content used for guest posting purposes will provide value to the readers—and therefore we find that people are happy to link to it!
Submitting your business information details to website directories is yet another way to jump-start the link building process. This is an appealing task because we have full control over the entire submission process. Rather than submitting to hundreds of directories, we simply focus only on those that have better page ranks than the rest. Social media also plays its own unique role in providing us with ample backlinks. Google has already started using social media signals to identify authoritative websites and content. We usually post content in social media with links pointing back to the website –rather than any separate landing pages –just to be on the safe side.
While begging or paying for links does not make any sense (thanks to a couple of algorithm updates pushed forth by Google), we always have that option to ask other website owners politely for backlinks. Fellow bloggers will be happy to link back to your business site because it works out in a mutually beneficial manner.
Local SEO Services in New Orleans
Achieving better rankings in the local search results is important, especially if you own and operate a business in New Orleans that has a physical storefront. Our New Orleans local SEO strategies will help your business to rise above the competition. With more than 97% of the population using the internet to locate information about local businesses/products/services, one must never underestimate the importance of local SEO. Auditing your business information located throughout the internet —this is the first step undertaken from our end. We do this to ensure that this information is free of errors and remains consistent on the web!
Google My Business (GMB) is another free service that Google provides. It allows you to list your business details and a perfect profile will help in kick-starting that process of building your visibility online –especially on Google Maps and Google Search. Similar business listing services are available from Bing and Yahoo too. Optimizing these business profiles is a task best left to the experts at OneIMS. We will ensure that your GMB profile has the same brand identity and will also optimize it for the local community using specific high performing keywords/search phrases.
Apart from services like Google My Business, there are second-tier local business directories. For instance, Yelp is a popular second-tier business listing website that allows people to leave their valuable feedback after availing your products/services. To further improve the local search rankings, we will look for niche directories that are much more relevant to your industry. Likewise, citations for your local business also help a lot. If a website references the name, address, or phone number details of your business it is a citation. Citations are different from backlinks because over here, there are no links involved—the other website will simply reference your company information without linking back to your site.
Similarly, online reviews play an important role in local search rankings. Did you know that approximately 88% of the consumers often consult online reviews before they buy products or services from local business establishments? There is no better way to provide the social proof that your company exists and caters to the specific needs and requirements of the local community. When people see the reviews left by your existing customers, they feel more like trusting you with their money! Acquiring reviews is not an easy process though. Did you know that Google actively discourages business owners from selectively soliciting positive reviews from their customers? However, the customers are free to leave their unbiased opinions on their own accord.
