A successful online business, Fresh Direct continues to grow. Our marketing company in Naples serves clients nationwide many of which have asked us to develop online growth strategies.

Growing Business Online

Growing a business online is key, even if you aren’t providing online services.

Tips to grow your business online:

  • Review website SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
    Google has changed how it’s ranking sites for example using the +1 clicks in search results and using “keywords” less.
  • Create online scheduling platforms for customers from medical to consulting firms like our marketing company in Naples
  • Launch an online mall, for those selling products, using a platform like “Etsy” that offers a mobile application
  • Think: What can you offer online that benefits both in person and potential web-based customers?
  • Market to online consumers using colorful designs, interesting text and easy navigation

      You may want to tell Dr. Smith to expand his blog to 300 words when he posts if possible or you could do a schedule an appointment application on the site if you had a software system to support it – maybe an appointment request for or something?

    A lot of people try to fight it but honestly you’re right. Online is key which is causing a heart attack with a lot of business owners.

  • Jennifer Crawford

    My problem is exactly what one of the other people mentioned – I feel like I’m out of my element.

    • Camden @ DREAMFly Marketing

      Jennifer you can always hire a freelancer or Naples marketing firm like ours to write your blogs for you. This takes care of a lot of the SEM (search engine marketing) which is different than your SEO (search engine optimization).

      Same here!

  • Milton S.

    Best web tip I can think of is the online appointment mentioned for businesses that have no “online” mall, but if you can an online mall is the way to go.
