Nichole Santoro of iMarketingSalon.com is joined by Rachel Whitehouse, custom website designer for small to medium sized businesses. Rachel asks these questions about social media:
1) I have heard that search engines are including social media into the optimization process. I know that the algorithms of the search engines are top secret but do you have any information to support if this applies to links, the number of posts or to the interaction that is created by a post? Are any platforms considered priority or reviewed more frequently?
2) I understand that assessing the client's audience is pertinent to gauging and creating a voice for the business, but how do you establish how frequently to post for different clients and how do you extract information to compile a list of targeted content?
3) What are the top 3 mistakes small businesses make when posting on their social media profiles?
Every business, no matter how large or small, needs a website that engages and captivates their audience. Rachel Whitehouse of Antsy Ant Web Design provides affordable custom e-commerce and information website design for businesses that do not yet have an information or ecommerce website, or are unhappy with their current site.
