Most small business entrepreneurs lean heavily on their online presence to build their customer base.  If your business is not easy to find online, then there is not much hope of moving forward.  It is vital that you find ways to draw attention to your organization from the millions of people who frequent the internet daily.

There are many ways to build your business’s digital visibility, and it helps to start with the most effective tactics.  Take this moment to begin your research, and check out a few helpful tips towards making your small business more visible online.

Build an enriching collection of blog posts

If you have your own small business, you probably already have a website built.  If you do not already have a “Blog” section on your site, it is time to build it.  Like this website has done, your blog should be directed towards a specific set of eyes.  You want to draw the right people to your website.

Fill your business blog with well-written, informative posts that will keep readers engaged in your content.  Your blog followers will help you to spread the word about your web presence, and naturally boost visibility.

Integrate the wide world of social media

Use your business blog as a platform for linking your business website to the wide world of social media.  Add social media share buttons to the design of each blog post, so readers can share interesting pieces on their personal profile pages for all of their friends and family to see.

Your blog is not the only place you need to integrate social media share buttons.  Add sharing links to your business homepage, and anything else you put your name on digitally.  Every interesting piece of information pertaining to your organization should be easily shared.

Learn everything you can about SEO

Search engine optimization is the key to making your website and your blog posts rank higher in the SERPs (search engine results pages).  Ranking within the first page of the SERPs makes your website/material far more visible to web crawlers.  Spend time researching the concepts of SEO, and integrate these tactics whenever possible.

Write guest posts for other people’s blogs

As the owner of your small business, promoting your professional image is just as useful as promoting your organization.  Writing for other related business blogs adds more chances for your name/business to pop up in the SERPs.

Optimize your business website for mobile access

Your business website should not only be optimized for search engines, but you need to make sure your website is optimized for mobile access.  No one should have to pinch or swipe to accurately view your website.
