A website is one of the most important aspects of your business and an integral part of marketing. Without a website you are missing out on a ton of potential customers. A website allows you to broaden your business beyond local to a national or even global market. Sell your products online, post pictures of your events, write a blog, and offer specials all while keeping your customers informed and entertained. With your website you can also collect and measure invaluable customer data to help improve marketing strategies and bring higher conversions.
We create our websites with a marketing first approach because in reality marketing determines the visual layout and navigational aspects of the website, as well as the content. Marketing drives everything.
Mobile Responsive Web Design
Almost everyone uses mobile devices and over half of all internet searches are done from mobile platforms. We design all of our websites with mobile in mind using Responsive Web Design. Responsive Web Design is user friendly whereas your website automatically resizes and adapts to the device the website is being viewed on. This provides a nice fluent design and a better user experience resulting in better Search Engine Optimization. If your website is mobile responsive your listing on the Google search engine result pages will have a tag that reads "Mobile Friendly". It seems that Google tends to rank pages higher if they have the mobile friendly tag. We will make sure your website is mobile friendly, responsive, and looks good on a desktop PC, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone.
If your website is behind the times, that can have a serious negative impact on your business. The good news is that Barking Dog Graphics can help! We will do a complete analysis of your website to determine where improvements can be made. Our analysis includes looking over your website for proper layout, site navigation, and overall design. We will check to see what, if any, search engine optimization is in place such as relevant keywords, meta info, proper page titles and headers, as well as quality, keyword rich content. We will even look over your online presence to see where your business is ranking in the search engine result pages, and where your business is showing up on social media, review websites, directories, blogs, and articles. We will then give our recommendations and discuss your website redesign options. Contact us today and bring your website forward to today's standards.
Search Engine Optimization
Search engine optimization is a process to help generate more traffic and potential customers to your website and continues for the life of your website to achieve continuous high rankings in search engine results for selected keywords and key phrases. On-site search engine optimization and keyword/key phrase selection are completed during the initial process of building the website and included in the cost of the website design. Off-site and continued search engine optimization is offered for an hourly fee and billed monthly to accommodate any budget. If you are not satisfied with the results, off-site search engine optimization can be discontinued at any time.
Search engines send out spiders all over the internet with the sole purpose of indexing website pages to their database to return when a specific keyword or key phrase is searched. They naturally want to return the best, most relevant page results so the spiders crawl your website looking at the page title, meta-description, headlines, and paragraphs, among other factors to make sure the website page being returned is relevant to the keywords/key phrases that were searched.
Off-site search engine optimization includes social media management, adding your website to local directory listings, blogging, creating YouTube videos, adding your website to customer review websites such as Yelp and Google Places, and other practices to help drive traffic to your website.

Social Media Marketing
Get an edge on your competitors with proper social media marketing practices. Most businesses only post content to do with their business and leave it at that, but they are losing out on potential customers. If you provide valuable content on your social media networks you can greatly boost your online reputation. Posting useful, interesting, or funny content, attention grabbing images, liking and sharing other people's posts, and interacting with your friends and followers will help to raise your brand awareness.
Social media now has an affect on your search engine optimization. Google looks at the overall business entity and ranks your website based on many factors, social media being one of them. In addition to your on-site search engine optimization, Google looks at your social media interaction such as likes, shares, retweets, +1's, and comments on your posts.
We can help you decide on the best social media platforms that suit your business needs and create a marketing campaign to help gather new customers and maximize your search engine optimization efforts. We will create profiles on the social media platforms that make sense for your brand. We will post different content across all of your social media accounts and interact with followers to promote your brand by liking, sharing, and commenting. We can also give you recommendations and help you get started if you are planning on maintaining your social media accounts yourself.
Make sure you are being found locally and your customers have somewhere to leave you reviews. We will help build your online presence by adding your business on all of the major local listing and review websites such as Google Places for Business, Yelp, YellowPages, Merchant Circle and more. By receiving positive reviews from your customers you gain trust, brand awareness, and an edge on your competition. We can also provide local marketing opportunities such as print ads, flyers, brochures, business cards, presentation materials, and more.
