I now have my blog set up and will be publishing posts to share my own marketing experience as well as more about what I’m learning for all my clients who follow.

Today I want to focus on SEO (Search Engine Optimization), which is the process of tailoring your website and web content to improve a website’s unpaid (organic) search results.

Websites range from small and simple to large and complex because the needs and budget of each business varies greatly. Web design agencies generally offer three or more web design pricing packages to suit the needs of their potential clients.

Online shoppers are becoming more and more sophisticated and demanding. This means that businesses are having to strategize ways to build trust in order to get site visitors into the buying process. There are a few key things that owners need to do to answer the question, how do I make my website ecommerce successful? As a digital marketing agency that provides web design services, we know how important a well-designed website is to ecommerce success.

A high bounce rate means you are missing out on the opportunity to make a sale.
