Paper Directory or Website - ideally both
Directories can be handy and with a fridge magnet stand a chance of lasting longer than other types of directories, but most people looking to find a new supplier in 2018 use their phone or computer.
Google dominates the results for most products. People who have tried Facebook tend to go back to Google Adwords, or at least use both.
Mobile Phones Dominate Search
To come up in Google you need a mobile phone friendly website which is secure. Secure meaning it is https:// s for secure.
Having built many mobile phone friendly websites (websites which change shape to fit the viewing device) all of which are now secure it is easy to see how they have helped small businesses.
Customers report new clients who did not know they were there.
If you do not have a website then the chances of being found in Google are reduced. You could come up in some directory listing, but that is very much second best to having your own website.
How To Get Started?
Some of my most loyal customers have been those who tried to build their own. Not as easy as the speeded up videos which always miss out key components required for success suggest.
My approach: I can help: -
- Sort out a domain name
- Words, provide help advice and guidance on pictures
- Once the site is up and running provide traffic through Google Adwords.
Experience has taught me most people do not know how to make a success out of Google Adwords even if they are running a marketing and design agency.
