Elevate your business.

Do you have the time and staff to manage social media, content creation, and online marketing for your business? As a business owner you know the importance of having a good online presence. Also, relevant online strategy includes social media marketing, search engine optimization for your website, and content creation to engage your current and potential customers. In addition, are you doing weekly or monthly email newsletter marketing and drip campaigns?

You probably want to be more consistent with your online marketing, yet you’re not sure what that strategy should be, and how you should be doing it. Do you delegate it to an employee? Are they trained in all areas of online marketing or are you giving them the task because you see them on Facebook or Twitter while at work? Hint: that doesn’t make them an expert.

The problem for most businesses that struggle online is that they don’t have the time or the trained staff to handle all areas of their online marketing.

Do you care? (About your website?)

WordPress now powers about 25% of sites on the interwebs. Its ease of use, flexibility and power have made it a go-to choice for many business owners.

Do you have a WordPress website? Do you know a business owner with a WordPress website? Is your care plan up to date?

Yeah, your care plan. It’s no good having a shiny, new website that stops working for you because it gets hacked, or has outdated software. Or think of it this way, how much business (ahem, money!) would you lose if your site was down for a day? Three days? A week?

At Graphic Zen, we provide our Client Care Plans to business owners and individuals who care about the results of their website. These clients want to focus on their businesses and not the tasks of keeping a website updated.

So what do our plans provide? In addition to core CMS updates, security monitoring and backups:

  • We provide and add value to your website.
  • We provide support to you and your team to make sure your site is up-to-date and running.
  • We help identify new projects for you so you can stay ahead of your competition

In addition, if you are on a client care plan we are able to offer strategy consulting on:

  • Social Media Integration
    • YouTube/video
    • Instagram
    • Facebook
    • Twitter
    • LinkedIn
  • Google Analytics
  • SEO/Content Marketing
  • And more

Social Media Integration

How do you share your blog posts with your audience? We are currently testing a service called dlvr.it (Deliver It) to see how well the service handles blog posts and places them into our social media accounts automatically. We were using Twitterfeed, though lately their service has been pulling old blog posts and not updating as it should. Both Twitterfeed and dlvr.it offer free services to start, and dlvr.it has a nice graphic interface that show clicks and network updates for your social media accounts. I’m going to give dlvr.it a try for a week and see if it handles posts like Twitterfeed. If it works well, I’ll stick with it because of the information in the graphic interface. Update to follow.
