SEO, DATA ANALYTICS AND PPC
Building a new website or mobile app can be extremely challenging. With millions of sites and apps available, the idea “If you build it, they will come” is no longer true. So, once your product is up and running, what’s the best way to convert users into customers?
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the first, vital step to making sure search engines have your site correctly indexed. To do this, you must utilise highly-effective keywords and phrases (long tail keywords.) You must also ensure that your site is running as fast as possible because Google penalises slow-loading sites with low ranking.
The next step is to monitor your users and understand how, why and when they use your website, while staying legal and compliant within GDPR requirements. This is best achieved using Google Analytics, Piwik and other solutions as required. By analysing this data, I can help improve your website and, in turn, your SEO.
The final piece of the puzzle is Pay Per Click (PPC) – paying for online adverts to appear on Google Ads, Facebook or other ad networks to drive traffic to your site. I can advise you on the most effective ways market your product and drive successful, highly-targeted promotions.
Working closely with my marketing partners, my technical and project management expertise means – beginning with a technical audit, followed by monthly ongoing support – you can be safe in the knowledge that you are doing everything you should be to drive converting traffic to your site.
VIRTUAL AND AUGMENTED REALITY (VR/AR)
VR and AR is finally becoming the next generation technology we all imagined; allowing both consumers and businesses to interact with technology in a way never before seen. Gaming and entertainment are leading the way, but more and more companies are finding ways to use VR to provide new experiences to customers. For example, an estate agency can film a property using a 3D camera and offer an immersive walk-around experience without the need for the customer to visit.
I can help you understand how VR and AR could improve your business to better engage with your customers and even help you introduce these exciting new technologies to your business
