Your website is essentially your company’s biggest asset online. In today’s digital-first world, people prefer to first window shop online before visiting a brick-and-mortar store.

Subsequently, your website is often your first point of contact with customers. The question is: Do you know whether it’s time to conduct a major overhaul for your website?

Remember, people want information at the tap of a finger or the click of a mouse. If your website is dragging its tail and writhing below sea level when it comes search engine results, navigation, and current, valuable content, then it’s more than likely a liability rather than an asset. Following are some key indicators that tell you not to waste a moment in contacting web design services for an overhaul. Read more from this blog: http://bit.ly/2ud5b61




If you own a small business, it often feels like you’re a small fish in a big pond—one that’s occupied by industry giants who are more than willing to outspend you on marketing.

What if there was a way to outsmart rather than outspend your rivals? The good news is that with search engine optimization (SEO), you can do just that. In a nutshell, SEO is the art and science of getting your website and pages on top of Google’s search results.

According to a study done by MineWhat.com, 81 percent of shoppers research product and services online. This means that if you can establish online visibility, people are more likely to visit your website and patronize your business.

But, how exactly can you take advantage of SEO to take down the Goliaths in your industry?

Create a local listing

If you search for a term, such as “plumber in New York,” Google will often show the top results along with additional information, such as addresses, contact numbers, operating hours, and even star ratings. Read more from this blog: http://bit.ly/2vEKRs0



Even with the onslaught of digital media and marketing strategies, a lot of business owners still prefer to invest in traditional marketing methods, simply because this is what’s more familiar to them. This attitude, however, simply won’t be of any help to your business, especially in this day and age. If you want your business to grow and develop, and if you truly want to be able to touch base with your target market, you go where they go—online. One great way to do this is by investing in your own website.

Finding a Presence

As it is, the online market is already heavily congested. The sheer volume of people logging into their accounts to do their business transactions, update their social profiles, and curate personal content is more than enough to compel any business to pursue a piece of the action.

These days, if you want to think big for your company, you should be thinking online as well as offline. This means that while you are too excited to prepare your brick and mortar shop, you should also be concerned about your online presence.

Most small businesses think they don’t really need digital marketing services because they’re not yet in the big leagues. What this mindset misses, however, is the fact that digital marketing is precisely the way to grow a small business. With practically everyone else being online, you cannot afford to be absent because that is where your target market lives.

Using Digital Marketing to Boost Your Independent Veterinary Practice

In the first blog and second part of this blog series covered the importance of digital marketing today, and the tried and true steps that must be taken in order to help today’s independent veterinary practices stay competitive in their field.  We discussed how a website and/or landing page can be a huge way to start your digital marketing campaign, as well as covering social media marketing and it’s wide spread reach across all business lines.

Strong Social Platform Presence

Strong Social Platform Presence is a very important factor, especially if you’ve just started your practice, or are fairly new to the entrepreneurial world.  This is the time that your online presence can be time-consuming and at times, frustrating.  As you build your online presence, you may find it’s not just something that happens overnight.  It’s a continuous “WIP” or work in process, one that must be continuously maintained, built upon, and improved.

Your online presence is the sum of all the identities you’ve created (both personal and business driven) and the results that those identities have established and participated in online.  It also has a very broad reach.  When built successfully, it can spread brand awareness like a wildfire – gain new fans, call in the followers, leads, and customers… Pretty much anything you would want for your business.

A Few Ways You Can Begin Right Now to Build Your Online Presence

  1. What are your goals?

First and foremost, it’s important that you understand what your business goals are, both short-term and long-term, for your veterinarian practice.  As you start to build the online presence for your veterinarian space, you should be constantly asking yourself how each of your online efforts are contributing toward your practice’s goals.  It is important to write your goals down so you can easily refer back to them when you’re double-checking that what you’re doing online is helping you take the next step forward.

  1. Build a Solid Platform

For the vast majority of small businesses and entrepreneurs, the beginning of your social platform starts with your “home base”, or your website.  Your website is your hub – a centralized place where individuals can go to learn more about what your company has to offer, a place to contact you, interact and engage with your content.  Things to work into your hub are a clear message (what your business is all about), and make it easy to navigate, include an opt-in giveaway (this will help you start building your email list, which is one of the most crucial parts of any grassroots marketing), and About Us page, and some type of valued content are required.  This is also where ensuring your website’s content is replete with the keywords you’d like for your practice to be found for is necessary. The Google Keyword Tool is an excellent resource if you want to start out perusing which keywords you will want your website to rank in (i.e., animal hospital Dallas, Chicago veterinary clinic, etc.). Now you have your hub all set!

These are just a few of the steps to get you started on a social media platform.  The Fire Path 5 is an excellent source and plan of action you might want to consider following when tackling your platform.

We still have two more blogs left to present to you on how to establish your social platform.  We hope these articles have been a great start for you and your practice.  We want to help you easily caboodle your poodle, streamline your feline, organize your otters, and… Do whatever it is you do with your Weimaraner!
