I’ve been struggling to figure out a new social media platform and Sandy really helped explain the “how to” in a very clear and concise way. The info I received was extremely helpful. Unlike many so called “social media experts” she definitely knows her stuff!

I was flying blind. After struggling to do everything myself while launching a garden tool product brand (@Peace Broom) for the last 4 years, I knew that I was in way over my head. Sure, I have over 25 years experience is marketing and advertising, but that world has changed, and continues changing faster than I can keep up, but I didn’t have any option – it still all had to be done. Website, social media, video/photo production, marketing posts, and making important social c

Sandy’s marketing skill was invaluable to an event we worked on earlier this year. She is great at networking and the event wouldn’t have been anywhere near what it was without her outstanding contribution. She is professional, listens to feedback, and focuses on details.

SEO Reno Searches up 1100%

seo expert

I moved to the Reno Nevada area from Eastern Tennessee 15 years ago. I love the great, western outdoors and small town feel of the Reno area. Over the years, I have seen amazing growth and decline then more growth.

I have always ran either an online business and/or website design company. Tracking the amount of clicks and / or searches a particular keyword receives each month is part keeping my SEO Company very competitive.

 

Call Sandy @   +1 (775) 870-0488  for a free consultation of your website, social sites and marketing.

SEO Expert Sandy Rowley

“Thousands of searches are performed each day. Local Nevada citizens who are looking for products and services in the Reno Nevada area.” Sandy Rowley

 

A local, growing statistic is now showing that more and more Reno Nevada businesses are learning the value of ranking their websites on the first page of Google for local keyword searches.

Years ago, I would notice in my keyword research, that only a handful of companies would look online for an SEO company or an internet marketing expert. Fast forward 5 years, and how we have hundreds and in some months, thousands of searches for keywords like:

  • seo reno
  • web design reno
  • reno marketing
  • reno seo
  • reno internet marketing
  • reno nv seo
  • reno seo expert
  • web design seo reno
  • seo expert reno
  • sparks nevada marketing
  • internet seo reno
  • internet marketing reno
  • sparks nv seo
  • seo reno nv

Google SEO Stats Growth

Google reports that over 20% of their daily searches are for words or keywords that no one, on earth, has ever searched for in the history of Google search engine results. That is an amazing fact to learn! (these numbers are growing and changing daily fyi)

The opportunities to rank for these new keyword searches are extremely motivating for an online business.

What are those keywords? What are they looking for? How can I position my small business website at the top of the Google search page for those keywords?

 

To add to this excitement, people are now using Voice  or Audio Search to look for local products and services. You can now use these popular keywords and add to them modifiers like “Siri, find me the best local SEO company in Reno” or “Where is a local SEO company” or “find me a local SEO expert”.

 

who is best seo expert in reno

 

 

With this amazing growth also comes choices, decisions and business/life changing solutions that you as the business owner need to get right the first time. SEO can really grow your online sales if done correctly and within Googles guidelines of what is considered White Hat and/or safe SEO and PPC (Adwords) marketing strategies.

 

how to rank my website in google

Before jumping in, do your SEO homework.

How to know what SEO expert to trust? Who will be there for you when you need them? Can I  afford a talented internet marketing expert?

SEO is a very competitive market. The select few experts enjoy a nice paycheck along side some rock star status in their business community. They have fabulous real reviews on Google and Facebook. They also have a local address where, if needed, you can stop by for a quick visit to say hello. 😉

As with any business you choose to hire, you need to look into their history online. This is easy to do.

Here is a quick checklist to research the best SEO expert for your business:

  1. Add them on Linkedin.com. Look at their reviews. No, really, look and read them. Do all of their reviews come from other SEO and Internet Marketing companies? If so, this is a HUGE RED flag. Why you ask? These are reviews from their potential competitors and is a tactic to game the LI system. Their reviews should be from real world customers that you can visit in person if needed.
  2. Check out their Google search. Do a search for their business name. Do a search for the name of the owner as well. Check out what other activities, if any, they are involved in around town.
  3. Also check out Facebook reviews, Google reviews and even on Yelp. Everyone in business has a few negative reviews. Some more than others. You want to look out for the SEO company with a million 5 star reviews from people or businesses you have never seen in Reno, Sparks, Carson or Lake Tahoe. These are fake reviews.
  4. Give them a phone call and see how responsive they are.
  5. Fill out their contact form on their website. Do they respond within a few days, weeks or never?
  6. Does the SEO expert rank for their own keywords like: Reno SEO, Reno SEO Expert, Reno SEO Company and so on?
  7.  Do you like working with the person? Call them or take them out to lunch. (I love Laughing Planet and Great full Gardens hint hint) Get to know them.
  8. Can you afford their marketing services? Do a quick review of your CPA or cost per acquisition. What does it normal cost you to acquire one new client? What is your average revenue? Then look at the CPC or Adwords cost per click and see how many searches are done on average each month in the Reno Nevada area. Example, your average CPA is about $75 a client. You use billboards, radio, tv, flyers, emails, friendly &  helpful employees, website pages and so on to capture their attention and make the sale. There are about 500 people a month in the Reno area searches for your services and products. If you rank your website at the top of the page in Google search, you can expect to get 200 – 500 unique visitors/leads to your website each month. What is your normal close rate? How many people do you speak with and how many of them sign up for your products or services? Use that percentage to get an idea of what a good, local SEO expert can bring to the success in your business.

I have several budget plans in place for most business owners. I look at several factors in determining how much work and upkeep will it take for me to rank your website pages for relevant keywords in Google SEO.

legal seo

Some clients pay $300 a month others pay thousands a month. It all depends. There is no one size fits all in the SEO field. I would be wary of any company selling a $45 a month SEO package. Most of these services are a waste of time and money.

My results speak volumes. I work with local painters, hvacs, lawyers, bail bondsmen, hair salons, co working spaces and startups. I also have clients located around the country.

I am committed to doing the best job I can for your business. I really do care about your success. I look forward to our first lunch meeting and/or phone call. Want to have a quick website review and audit? Click here for your free website report now.

Efficient and effective strategies to increase customer engagement

Customers are the heart of your business whether it involves selling software programs, custom video games, E-Books, consulting, or any other physical product, without devoted and faithful customers your business will fail. If you are looking for strategies to captivate customers, keep reading.

The way you interact and involve yourself with your customers matters. People in general have a decrease in attention span and because customers come from different and various sources it’s important to attract engagement on mobile and desktop devices.
A new report showed that approximately 50% of web traffic to retail websites comes from smartphones and tablet devices and 30% of those sales are made through the same electronic devices.

Using social media as a commitment not just a platform

A 2015 poll that was conducted showed world population to be 7.3 billion and out of these 2.3 billion people are active social media users.
When people follow you on Instagram or Twitter or like you on Facebook they do this because they trust that you will provide support when they need it. With customer engagement, promotional strategies, you can maintain and keep your customers satisfied. Use social media as a tool where you can create connections with viewers by actively engaging and providing interesting content they can relate too and keep them interested.

Engage customers with IPC (In-Product Content)

There are several avenues that can be used for customer to notify your customers about new product content through messaging, some customer engagement strategies include the following:

• Mobile Games
• Social Media Games
• Email Marketing
• Newsletters
• In-product messaging
• Customer support

Out of these avenues the most popular and that has proven to be more efficient and effective is In-Product messaging. Customer response is much greater to In-Product than any other avenue.

IPC (In-Product Content) is a great strategy to increase customer engagement. IPC or promotional ideas refers to messages that are delivered straight to user’s electronic device with the intent to inform, get feedback, from engaging with a specific customer or customers at greater rates other than marketing channels.

Promotional ideas for customer engagement

The definition of a customer is someone who has taken an action that would benefit a business. It takes concentration, money and time for a customer to use your product. A study conducted showed that free customers act differently than paying customers. Starting a relationship with a customer through a free trial will increase customer engagement and will also influence how long they will remain your customers and how devoted they are towards your product.

To increase customer engagement and drive free trial users to upgrade and use premium features you need to interact, involve and form a relationship. To obtain the best results you should give them a chance to get to know you first. It’s as easy and simple as letting your free trial users know you by name so they become more comfortable and begin trusting your brand and becoming devoted customers.

Exchanging information with VIP customers with promotions

IVP customers are those users that have been with your business for a long time, have referred friends, purchased products, family members or enthusiast of your business. VIP’s are not one time customers. Having many VIP customers could mean that your business will advance regardless of economical turmoil’s. There are three types of VIP customers:

• General VIP are customers who are devoted to your business brand. They are customers who purchase products over a period.
• Community VIP customers are not big spenders, but you need them because they are usually the customers that refer your new customers. Bloggers fall into this category since once they post a blog about your products you can expect hundreds if not thousands of new subscribers and users.

Deliver valuable content and products to your customers

A great marketing engagement strategy can be gained through delivering useful and valuable content and products that attract your customers. When you truly value your customers, and provide support you will gain an army of devoted customers.

Design Your Own Website?

Do It Yourself Web Design Versus Hiring a Professional Web Designer – Website Design in Reno Nv

Obviously I would rather you contact me to design and build your company’s website, but if you have extra time on your hands and a little tech know how experience, you should be able to setup a decent static website in a week or two.

Have you seen the commercial where the father had decided to setup his own website and save a few thousand dollars? LOL then it takes a lifetime to actually get the site working correctly. Reno Web Design.

Many website builder company’s claim that their web software makes it super simple to set up a website, even a kid could do it. The truth of the matter is that not all website builders are easy to use or worth the effort of learning a new web software.

Everything and everyone you know has at least one flaw, if not several of them lurking around the corner.  We all try to put our best face forward; web builder companies are the same.

Do a quick web search in Google for the name of the website builder and add the word complaints or bad reviews after like so: Shopify.com bad reviews or Shopify.com complaints. You will see hundreds if not thousands of bad reviews. This is the same for all large hosting and /or website builder sites. Sometimes you have to dig a little deeper, say page 2 or 3 to see the real reviews of a website company.

nevada-website-hosting

Most of the time you will find yourself on hold with tech support (if they even have phone support) or waiting in line to chat with a tech support person who could care less about your needs. Hours and hours of time wasted when you could have been watching your favorite show or out on a hot date with the love of your life. Seriously. This stuff is a pain in the but most days to deal with. I don’t want to just pick on BlueHost.com.

All hosting and web site builder companies have bad reviews, it is part of being in a very competitive and booming industry. It is important to look through these bad reviews to see what problems you may experience by choosing that website builder. Then ask yourself if this bug, problem or concern is something you can live with.

Whether you decide to jump into designing your company website on your own or hire a professional web developer, I have put together a guiding list of items you will need on your website creating journey.

  1. Secure a domain name for your new website. Godaddy is great middle man to do this. They charge about $9 a year for your domain name. Make sure to register this name for 5 years or more. Never let your contact information with the domain registrar become out dated for your domain name. Always keep your email, phone and/or mailing address updated. If not, you could lose it to a competitor. Try to register a name that matches your business name. Do not use abbreviations as they are difficult for your customers to remember. Keep the domain name short, memorable and try your best to get the .com version.
  2. Now that you have a great domain name, you need to have hosting setup. Think of hosting like renting office space on the world wide web, much like renting office space in a busy shopping mall. Hosting plans range in price from free to thousands of dollars a month. Most small business websites can make do with an affordable web hosting plan from Hostgator or Blue Host for about $10 a month. Hosting will house your website files, your emails and other important software needed to run a website. Make sure to purchase Site Lock and Backups for your hosting account to protect your website from attackers, hackers and hi-jackers.
  3. Most hosting companies offer free website builders. There is usually a learning curve with any new web building software. Research the name of the web site builder online to check and see what problems are associated with this free builder. Even pay as you go web site builders have their bugs and headaches. Shopify starts at $29 a month and is super easy to use, BUT, they do not have site backups. A BIG problem for anyone in business to actually sell something. You can buy a website already designed online for about $89, but then you need to learn how to setup correctly and install all the plugins and/or features needed to make the site work. Most theme websites offer an install service for about $600+ per site. You could use a free WordPress theme as well. Your site might not look the greatest, but at least you have it up and running with the basic information needed like office hours, location, customer testimonials and pricing.
  4. Test your new website in multiple browsers and platforms. Open your new website in Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer. Are there any weird bugs? Can you live with them? Or are they breaking the website making it difficult to read? How about your mobile phone? Load your website on an Android and an iPhone and see if the site is easy to navigate and read. Mobile ready websites are extremely important feature to have.
  5. After you have your new domain name, hosting and website setup, you need to setup all of your online social media profiles. Protect your brand online by registering accounts with all the major social networks like Facebook.com, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google Plus and Yelp. Add these social icons to your new website.
  6. Technically that is all you need to know to have a website up and running. Building your website is the first step. Marketing is the

web developer reno

Building a good website takes time, effort and courage. There is always something new to learn and a bug to fix. Browsers update and change all the time. You need to regularly check in on your websites health, making sure that it is running as it should.

A professionally designed website is proven to increase sales and customer loyalty.  Every business needs a website. Most new customers research a business before buying. Your website is your best chance at persuading them to choose you over your competition.

Marketing your website is a critical last step in this process. A true necessity if you are wanting to see growth in new customers.  SEO (search engine optimization) is the art and science of ranking your website high in the search results for the keywords your customers use when looking for similar products and services you sell.

A good SEO company can rank a well-designed website within a month.  The goal is to rank for as many keywords as you possibly can. SEO tools can give us a good idea of what popular words are being searched in Google, but it takes time to weed out the useless keywords and find the real gems that will convert a website view into a real paying customer.

2017 SEO is all about user engagement and interaction with your website properties. If you rank a website for a top keyword and the website viewers do not engage in your website, you will start to lose rankings for that keyword.

The goal is to really WOW your website viewers so much so that they either share your site onto their social media profiles, sign up with their email, watch a video or two, bookmark the site and of course buy something from your website.

This new Rank Brain algorithm makes black hat SEO more difficult. Either your website is fulfilling a need with your customers or it will lose rankings no matter how many back links you have.

Content is KING. The most important marketing expense you will ever have for your business is to hire a great copywriter. Sales copy writing can be pricey, but is worth the extra time and money. This investment will last for years to come.

Working with an SEO company, a copywriter and branding consultant can really help set the tone for a successful website. Why even build a website for your business in the first place if all you put on the site is something from your brochure?

The goal of your website is to convert views into customers. The difference between a homemade website and a professionally designed company website is simple. One of them will generate new clientele for your business and the other will hurt your reputation down the road.

A face only your mother could love

Most often, the do it your self-websites look very unprofessional, but you’ve put so much darn time and energy into it, your proud of the work you have done. This makes you blind to the fact that you now have a poorly designed, half-baked company website.

Often clients will call asking for help with these website builder sites after they have exhausted every free evening and weekend they had. Even though they know they should just hire someone already, they now want to invest more time and dollars by hiring someone like me to make the ugly go away. Even then, they LOVE the website they created with these template sites. Not because the site will win the hearts of their customers, but because they hung in there and finally got something half way decent to share. Not a good business plan if you ask me.

Sometimes the truth hurts, but I promise to make it feel better.

You have to ask yourself, can you handle the truth?

Do you want to impress your future customers? Squash your competitors? Rule the world… 😉

Most custom websites I create cost a onetime fee of $600 – $1500. I need about 2 weeks to work my magic. You can go golf, hiking, a cruise, take a long nap…whatever your heart desires. Leave the heavy lifting to me.

The goal of your business website is to boost your bottom line. You have better things to do than slave over your computer. Step back from the computer…Take a deep breath, pick up the phone and dial 775-453-6120.
