We’ve just launched our Instagram

INSTAGRAM Spalding

As many of our clients have recently discovered, we have just launched our Instagram business page.

Instagram can make a business look fantastic online and it does have a good share of quality users. Unfortunately, the best practice for achieving the most involves maximising engagements and it’s easy to forget that this is where most of your likes are coming from. Engagements are the highest priority for a social media manager (personal or commercial). The more you engage the better you’ll do. Hence, if you don’t have the time or patience, it’s tough to grow your audience on Instagram. Businesses using Instagram will often feel their time is well spent while collecting a large number of likes that add no value to their business in reality. But this is obviously no reason to avoid it entirely. The overall benefit is still quite high with expectations properly managed. There is a growing audience on instagram, both globally and locally. Around the Facebook privacy controversy, Instagram has benefited from a 30% boost in users.

So now we’re live and it’s rejuvinated some excitement for social media again. We are regularly engaging with our growing audience now and hope to set a good example to our customers. We’ve reached 136 followers in around a week, which we are quite pleased with. We’ll be promoting graphic design just as much as website work on our Instagram page.

Facebook Is Changing – Is Your Website?

Facebook Website Marketing

Not so long ago, Facebook announced plans that would make businesses less of a priority in people’s news feeds. The changes inevitably had a big impact on businesses relying Facebook for leads and new sales. Additionally, the recent concern over users data has led to even further measures to change what users will see in their newsfeeds, and it’s not going to get better for businesses.

We have seen instances of businesses relying very heavily on the Facebook platform that have lost a lot of custom already. We can validate this with statistics generated by their Websites that can tell us how many conversions have come from Facebook over Google. 

Doing more with your website and social media

Firstly, Facebook adverts are still just as effective in spite of the recent changes. If you needed to keep the attention of your followers, Facebook are now just pushing you towards paying for it. 

Secondly, your marketing needs to be diversified. Any business that runs solely on one platform for exposure is missing out and taking far too big a risk. The YouTube adpocalypse had a similar impact for users of YouTube relying on ad revenue. A major change in the ads service triggered a huge drop in revenue for many YouTube businesses. 

Your best option should be to follow best practices on your website. This includes blogging. Blogging is as easy as Facebook but is has benefits across a large number of different platforms. We would then recommend setting up an email mailing list. Keeping in touch with your customers via email is necessary to continue engaging with them outside of the browser window. You can even turn your blog into an automated mail shot. 

For more information contact us on 01775 761512. We’re happy to help produce ideas specific to your business that will help make the most of your website.

Introducing Cloud Walking With Hilary

The team here at Drive By Websites has had a very nice time working with Hilary Peach to design and Cloud Walkers logobuild her new website – http://www.cloudwalkingwithhilary.com. 

Hilary Peach’s background is in nursing and she has recently opened Cloud Walkers in Knight Street, Pinchbeck.  Her specialities are massage therapy and foot care.

Cloud Walkers’ philosophy is “Achieve harmony between mind, body & soul and well-being will follow”.

If you are suffering from pain and tension, Hilary will help to redress the balance to ease the pain and tension which, in turn, will improve tone and condition within your body.   The benefits of massage are to reduce anxiety, improve your mood and relax.  A massage will contribute to a “feel good” sensation.

We are delighted that Hilary has included a blog within her website because we feel that the modern Bloggingbusiness approach needs to fully embrace the communicative power of the web.  In our experience, a dedicated News/Blog facility is the best way to do this.  Not only does a blog connect you to your customers – whilst simultaneously updating your social media pages in one go – it also feeds a constant reminder to search engines, like Google, that your website is more up to date and relevant than your competitors.  The inclusion of a blog within your website is highly recommended.
