- Is your website professional-looking and easy to navigate?
- Is it mobile ready?
- Are you on the first page of search results for keywords relevant to your business?
- Are you overwhelmed by the thought of blogging and social media?
Today, the Internet is the number one way that consumers search for products and services that they need and desire. Every business needs a web presence to remain competitive. Even local clientele will check your website for information such as directions and business hours.
But a “web presence” is more than just a website. It’s getting listed in Google Places, blogging, and social media.
This is all great, but overwhelming to most small business owners. Who has time to be on Facebook all day? Most of us do not! So what’s the solution?
“Choosing Beth from Birchwood Enterprise to develop my website proved to be one of the smartest decisions I’ve made in the fifteen years of being in business. Beth was up to speed on my business very quickly and her initial design recommendations were right on the money. Development time was very short and Beth was always available to help with my numerous copy changes. Once final copy and design were locked in, the transition to a live website took only a couple days.
I have had many positive comments about my website, both from clients and colleagues, and I have nothing but praise for the quality of Beth’s work and her professionalism.”

Smart business owners know that if they are going to grow their business, they need to work “on” their business and not just “in” their business. There are only so many hours in the day. If the business owner is making the pies, she can only make so many in a day. If she hires assistants to bake and spends her time managing the business, including marketing, so she can keep that assistant busy, her business will grow.
One of the first things an owner might do when they decide to work on growing their business, either before or after hiring other technicians, is to get outside help with their finances, such as hiring a bookkeeper.
I would suggest that the next step would be to get help with marketing the business, and especially someone to focus on Internet marketing, such as designing and maintaining the website, optimizing the website for search engines, blogging, and managing social media.
Customers want the speed and convenience of buying products online.
