Could your company benefit from gaining greater visibility online? Let’s look at a few ideas for how you can receive more inquiries and phone calls from the internet.

Do you know who your competitors are? I often ask company executives if they know who their competitors are. Of course, they quickly rattle off several names. Then, I’ll ask them for a keyword which best describes what they do and we do an online search. The results appear, next I say, “Are any of these companies listed your competitors? “ And many of them reply, “No”. I say, “Who do you think is getting the phone calls for those products and services? “ Then they get it and say, “I need to be visible online!” Find out who your real competitors are and beat them at their own game.

What challenges are your prospective clients facing? What pain are they experiencing? People search online for their problems and needs in hopes of finding the answer for relief. What keywords would help them to find you? Lower back pain, network system is down, fear of public speaking, foundation cracking, excruciating toothache, injection mold contract manufacturing? Market the problems, symptoms and needs you are able to solve, the more specific the better.
