“An online presence is any existence of an individual or business that can be found via an online search. An example of an individual who is not active on the Internet but who has an online presence is one who is a member of an association that has a member directory listing online.”
How you appear online, or even if you appear, is similar to how you prepare and appear for an interview or opening your shop each day. For example, you would not attend the interview or open your shop without taking a look in the mirror to see how you looked. The reason is simple; first impressions count and if you cannot be found online or if your online details are poorly written or designed then the chances are you won’t be found or you will be overlooked.
So, how do we mirror our real world presence into the online presence? Here are some hints.
Your online presence starts from that results' page. It is here that your potential clients are able to “find” you and your business. The first online impression is gained at this point.
If you can’t find anything of yourself from the search result page, you do not exist in other people’s search either. That means that no one will be able
to find you and your business in the online world. Previously people thought that a website was the best way to represent your business online. Let
Geo Create believes that this is an antiquated way of thinking.
Options for taking you and your business online
Some of the options for getting online are:
Do you always need a website first to represent your business online?
No. You can start working it on step by step according to your strategy and circumstance. For example, you could have your business on Google map while
your website is being built. You could place your products and services into your social media outlets first, while your website is built. You can
also place your videos on Youtube while your website is taking shape. Talk with your web people or contact us to assist you
to get started or to refine your online presence. Don’t panic and think that you need all online presence ready to go at the same time. That's simply
a waste of money!.
