Why Atlanta Small Business Needs a WordPress Blog For Their Social Media Strategy

Posted by on Jul 20, 2012 in blog news

Atlanta small business owners: This article is for you.  Social media has helped to level the playing field. In the past, smaller companies couldn’t compete against the corporate behemoths with huge advertising budgets to reach customers and prospects. If you’re a small company, now you can go directly to your target audience with a WordPress blog as the centerpiece of your social media strategy. Think of your blog as your home base. From your home base, you can feed important information directly to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr and many other social media sites where your customers are forming communities. Post an article, and it is immediately “pinged” to sites of your choice with a link back to your blog. The viral impact is enormous as readers Like, retweet and comment on your posts. You might think that you can just throw up a facebook page and use that as your social media base. But that could be a huge mistake. With a blog, you own your content. When you rely on a third-party social network, you are at the mercy of their rules. Remember when facebook started company pages? What a drag it became to populate both your personal and information streams. Recently, facebook changed its format again with timeline and resized...

OnTrack MD contacted us as a new business opportunity. Their business model was to provide a medical weight loss program for people that needed a fast track to weight loss. After several meetings about marketing and branding, we all agreed the best way to go was “non threatening” and easy to get information about Medical Weight Loss. The Client also wanted to provide, coupons on the site, newsletter sigh up, and a way to have users contact administrators and give them info on how they found the site. We provided all of it. www.ontrack-md.com is a graphically friendly site that pulls you in by a “Healthier Slimmer You” (which is their tag line). We also did logo creating and graphics for Ontrack.

Piedmont Minor Emergency Care (based in Atlanta Buckhead) came to us do re-design there web presence. Having had a bad experience with another “web person”, we wanted to make sure that this time, their experience was a good one.  We went to work on creating a visually friendly, safe, secure website that was based on “I need content now”! For people needing emergency care, or new people moving into the community, we created an experience that was easy to navigate, and was interactive. By creating a FAQ page  we were able to communicate to potential patience or walk in’s. We also created a friendly contact form so people could ask questions pre-arrival. We were also very specific with how to get there, and the ability to get directions.  This is what Atlanta Web Design professionals do, we create the users experience and provide communication between the user, and the client....

What makes one blogger better than the other? Nothing really, however, they may have better habits. Here are 10 habits that can make you a much more effective blogger. 1. Stay OFF Facebook. A good blogger actually writes, not posting pinterest pics. Facebook is a great tool to share your content, but it can also be a huge waste of productivity. *Tip to Becoming a Highly Effective Blogger: Don’t view Facebook as a fun way to take a break. As a blogger, Facebook is a marketing platform. Looking at friends’ photos is not going to make you money, or get you traffic. Limit your Facebook time to once per day. While on Facebook, concentrate on activities that will help grow your blog and readership. 2. Check e-mail no more than 3 times a day. In Tim Feriss’ bestselling book, The 4-Hour Workweek, he explains that checking your email more than once or twice a day is an extreme time waster. Effective bloggers get in the habit of checking their email just a couple times a day… no more than three. This allows them to stay in the zone… not being pulled away with every single email. *Tip to Becoming a Highly Effective Blogger: Choose 2-3 times per day that you will...
