The other day I talked to a clerk who worked at a Blockbuster DVD retail store. The store looked like it might be closing and I asked him if it was. His answer reflects online services vs. retail stores.
The employee stated that a lot of the retail stores were closing. As I listened, he stated that today most people purchase their DVD’s from online services such as Netflix or several other online websites.
This made me think about online internet marketing and search engine optimization. The fact is most people today use the internet to purchase products. Some people don’t even go to retail stores because of the good prices, search ability with search engines and websites and the ease of buying what you need from the comfort of your home.
So what does that mean to you? It means if you own a business or are self-employed, owning a website is essential to your small business! More importantly, the competition of websites is HUGE. There are millions of websites on the internet. If you want to win the sale from your competition you MUST be prepared to have better search optimization than the other websites selling the same product you have.
How do you optimize your website and have better results than your competition? It’s called search engine optimization. SEO services are necessary for your website to be successful. The same is true if you owned a sub shop and never marketed it from the other restaurants that surrounded your store. You would be out of business very soon!
