If People Can’t Find You on the Internet, You Don’t Exist to Them

If you want your business to succeed, you are going to need to market it heavily on the Internet. If you aren’t already on the Internet, then you don’t exist to many people who may be searching for the particular product or service that you are offering. And as a result, you are leaving a lot of money on the table. Even if you already have a web site on the Internet, it is not enough to simply just throw together a simple website and expect to make a good impression with your potential customers, let alone be able to increase your sales. Of course, having a basic website is better than having no website at all, but the fact of the matter is, that if you aren’t employing any marketing strategies online in order to promote your business, then you are going to be wiped out by your competition.

Marketing on the Internet, simply known as “Internet marketing”, is extremely vital to the success and survival of your business, both in the online world as well as in the offline world. These days, if you don’t have a website, or if you have a website but it isn’t interactive, engaging, or even “Web 2.0” enabled (using social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter), then you are seriously putting your business at a huge disadvantage over the competition. Why? Because today’s generation Googles everything. If they are looking for local restaurants, stores, movie theaters, gas stations, or practically any type of local business, they search for it on Google. And this is especially true of the increasing number of millions of people who are using smart phones to access the Internet on GPS-enabled devices now. From their point of view, if you don’t come up in the Google search results for a particular query, then you don’t exist at all.

As harsh as that may seem, that is, indeed the new reality. If people can’t find you on the Internet, you don’t exist to them. It’s like the old philosophical question “if a tree falls in a forest, and nobody is there to witness it falling, can it really be said that a tree fell at all?”

And why does it matter? If you have competition within your industry or within the same geographic area, then many consumers out there will flock toward your competitors if they can’ find you. And not only is that the case if they can’t find you, but it is also the case if they can find you, but your website is not as informative or engaging as the website of your competitors.

So if you want your business to thrive in the online world, you need to actively pursue the proper implementation of solid Internet marketing strategiesfor your business.

If you are clueless when it comes to marketing on the Internet, then you can most definitely enlist the services of a professional marketing consultancy to help you develop and put into place some marketing strategies that will work for you.
