Is Your Website Working For You?

posted on January 18, 2010 / IN Personal Branding / Social Media / 1 Comment

Often times clients will ask me, “Lethia, is my website a good website?” My response is always the same, “How much money are you making from your website?”

You see if your website isn’t bringing you more clients, then it is nothing more than an expensive business card used to share information with people who already know you.

When analyzing your website there are key things you must keep in mind:

1) Does your website accurately represent your brand?

2) Is your website easy to find via search engines? Is it search engine optimized (SEO)?

3) Do you have a powerful “Call To Action” (CTA) which leads visitors to your desired result?

4) Do you have a mechanism for capturing email addresses for future follow-up?

5) Can visitors engage with you and interact via your website?

6) Are you leveraging the power of video on your website?

7) Is your website social media optimized (SMO)?

This week we will focus on helping you analyze your website to ensure it is working for you and not against you when it comes to building your million dollar brand.

      Lethia, those are such good questions that need to be answered; if they're not adequately addressed, it is amazing how much you can miss out on these days. It was only a year ago that I started learning these questions and getting to work fixing the problems that existed with my first site ( Before that, my website was so unfindable that it was laughable. Now – I am #1 or in the top 5 on Google's page 1 SERPs for a LOT of terms, and I've added additional websites and social media, to the point that there are a number of terms for which I dominate page 1 of Google SERPs for my area. And I'm not even done yet! And oh…..what a difference in revenue generated from the web!

      I'd like to learn more about making my website better social media optimized?
