With the fishing season coming to a close, it’s time to prepare for better business next season! Most industry SEO programs focus on high keyword rankings however, building rankings takes time and should be your #1 focus in the off season! Now is the time to not only think about better rankings but driving clicks to your listings, visitors to your website and generating more bookings! Here are a 4 great facts:

  1. Search is the #1 driver of all traffic to your website whether from Google (77%), Yahoo (11%), or Bing (10%).
  2. 75% of searchers never scroll past the first page. This means, if you aren’t ranking well, you are loosing money.
  3. 3/4 of all search engine clicks are organic. This means that people generally don’t click the paid ads.
  4. 50% of Google searches are made from a mobile device. Mobile device means cell phone – not tablet or laptop. Is your site mobile friendly?

Is your website capturing the spirit of your business?

Does your site capture the spirit for your business? Are you sending the right vibe and attracting the right customers? A website redesign can dramatically change your business for the better. Just ask Jeanne from See & Ski Powerboat Rentals

“Many thanks to the Charternet team for capturing our vision in the design of our new website. The team really ‘caught’ See & Ski’s VIBE. The process of creating the site was exiting, professional and fun. Their guidance in keeping us current and on the cutting edge of internet marketing and interactive web design is invaluable. We love our new site and have been receiving exciting feedback and results since its launch!!!”

The process started with Jeanne realizing she needed to meet Google’s latest standards with a mobile friendly, responsive site but she also saw this as an opportunity to ensure her website conveyed the fun, exciting vibe her customers experience on the water with See & Ski!

On the fence about updating your site? Here are 3 more reasons to make sure your website conveys the right message & should be updated:

  1. Search engines love updated sites. Once your website overhaul is complete, search engines reward those redesigned sites with higher rankings. This coupled with excellent SEO services can increase your business dramatically.
  2. A properly targeted, updated site will give you customers a reason to come back. If they like what they see they are more likely to return! Updating your site with a modern design and current messaging will increase traffic and your opportunity to convert site visitors into customers.
  3. Track your website’s performance & fix what is not working. High bounce rates, abandoned shopping carts? Learn what is working and what isn’t on your site. Use the redesign to correct errors and add that “something special” that is missing to draw in a whole new type of customer.
