ST. GEORGE, UT, April 13, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to Internet World Stats, visitor growth on the Internet in North America was 152.6% between 2000 and 2011. There are now over 100,000,000 Americans that use the Internet every day and Google performs over 3,000,000,000 daily searches worldwide. These are more compelling reason for businesses to have a strong Web presence.
Businesses need to treat their online presences just as importantly, if not more as having a physical store. Too many business owners treat their websites as an online brochure, which do little to attract customers. A successful business Web presence requires time, attention, and investment for it to work.
Amazon.com is a multi-billion dollar business that was built on online sales. The Web has become the biggest store on the planet. It is also the new phone book, but offers businesses much more than just a directory listing and advertising.
If a business does not have a visually appealing and contextually rich site that is frequently they are likely missing the opportunity to attract and retain many new customers. But having a great website design and usability are only one part of the equation.
A website needs online marketing for it to attract search engines and customers. Without marketing, a website is like a store on a street without any traffic. Businesses need to rank highly for organic search terms important to their business. They need to be on the Google Places map for their location(s). They need a highly visible and engaging social media presence.
