Getting your business online is crucial for its success.   

An online presence allows you to reach more customers, be easily discoverable and establish credibility for your brand. Here are some tips to help you get your business online quickly and affordably.  

 

Set up a website  

The first step is creating a website to establish your online presence. You don’t need coding skills or expensive web developers to do this nowadays.   

User-friendly website builders like WixSquarespace and Weebly allow you to create professional-looking sites with drag-and-drop editors and themes. Most offer free basic plans to get started. 

Simply pick a template, add your branding, content and products/services, and you’re good to go. Your site can be live in just a few hours!

Optimise for SEO  

You need to be findable on search engines like Google for customers to locate your business online. 

Search engine optimisation (SEO) improves your rankings so you show up higher in results. Include relevant keywords in headlines, content and image titles. Even smaller details like using alt text for images and claiming your Google My Business listing can make you pop up in top results easier.  

 

Leverage Social Media  

Promote your brand and content on social networks like Facebook, Instagram and X. Create business pages and be active in posting updates, photos, videos and deals.   

Use hashtags and keywords so followers can find you and make sure to share your expertise through educational content.    

Respond to comments and questions to engage followers in your content, bringing attention to your brand and don’t forget to encourage people to visit your website.   

  

Focus on Email Marketing  

Collect email addresses to build an email subscriber list. A great way to do this is to offer a lead magnet (something we can create for you!), such as a free resource in exchange for emails.    

Send regular newsletters with valuable content or maybe just company news to establish trust and maintain relationships with potential customers/clients.    

Promote your products, events and blog posts through these emails, personalising subject lines and content with merge tags.    

Our favourite email automation systems are MailChimp and Mailerlite.  

  

Start Blogging  

Launch a business blog to share insights, tips, behind-the-scenes and expertise.   

Blogging boosts your organic traffic and helps establish authority in your niche. Make sure to promote posts through your social media platforms and share those blogs!    

If you can, guest post on relevant blogs and link back to your site – this is a great way to drive traffic.
