Stay relevant build your brand online


If you know how much time your customers actually spend online these days, you will have a brand online.  The amount is staggering. According to Google, 97 percent of consumers search for local businesses online. Customers build their brand online and you should be too.

Even in this day and age, business owners are still resistant to admit to themselves that not having an online presence, hence a website and social profiles, is the same as not having a business presence at all.

Why have a brand online?

It isn’t that complicated to understand. Just look at your own behavior when you are looking to buy a product or searching for a service provider in the Paarl, Winelands or Western Cape. What do you do?? First, like me, you get your smart phone while watching your favorite show (yes, we are plagued with multi-tasking, even when we think we are relaxing) and Google (yes, that has become a verb!) the product or service you are looking for. That is the first step, availability of what you are searching for whether that is in your local community or anywhere online in the world.

In the world that we currently live in, it is vital for all businesses to have a strong brand online, in order to stay relevant, build the brand and gain more customers, an internet profile is vital. Whether you are a local business that specializes in Waterproofing, a Clinical Psychologist or a weight loss clinic offering weight loss support programs, a strong brand online is going to be vital to your success and here are just a few reasons why.

When you have a strong brand online your presence online open up far more ways in which to market your product or service. Online marketing techniques are one of the biggest ways of driving business and without a presence you will not have the option to employ these techniques.
