Not sure how to decide if your website is “finished” and ready for action? We have a Website Review of one of our members, Secure-tech.co.uk, for you to watch. This review is based on one of our coaching packages where Rick identifies any area of weakness from structure to content, from SEO to your call to action. He looks at everything on the site and makes specific recommendations on how to make it optimally effective at reaching your target customer.
We all want our sites to be found by Google and other search engines but you need some basic strategies (not tricks) to get the rankings you want. In this seminar we discuss Search Engine Optimization strategies for all kinds of websites – from blogs to online stores – in our Beyond Basic SEO – Practical Strategies.
