The Importance of Brand Development and an Online Presence
When it comes to running a business, you’re going to want to stand out from the rest. And if you’re a first-time business owner, using Internet platforms for brand development is a great way of establishing yourself.
Although it’s true that some companies gain their positive reputation through word of mouth, it never hurt anybody to develop a strong online presence. When you combine brand development with an online presence, you can essentially create something magical—something that is accessible, dependable, and a simple click away.
These days, people rely on the Internet for everything. From finding recipes to sourcing materials for complicated research papers, the Internet—search engines in particular—have dramatically improved our ability to learn about a plethora of different topics. When we hear about a new business, one of our first instincts is to reach for our laptop, get on the Internet, type in the name of the company, and attempt to learn more. But what happens when there is virtually nothing to work with? Your target consumers might take their business elsewhere.
Without a good online presence, your brand can appear less valuable than it is. This is not to say that it actually is less worthwhile, but think of your company’s website almost like a store in the mall: would you go there if it were messy, hard to get around in, or had terrible service? The answer is most likely no. In addition to the world being desperately hooked on the Internet, we also expect fast results. If your website is difficult to maneuver or looks outdated, a potential client could lose interest quickly and search for a similar company instead.
Utilizing social media platforms can help you to develop a strong online presence for your clients; 500 million people alone are using Facebook. Currently, there are 554,750,000 people tweeting away on Twitter—and let’s be honest—that is a gigantic number. By building a strong online presence with clear and consistent branding, it will be easier for your future customers to access your company’s information and to take advantage of your services.

"Two years ago we set out to find the best possible SEO/PPC consultant possible and after an extensive search we chose WebiMax. Since then our qualified lead traffic exploded while our cost per lead went down significantly. We were so pleased with the results that we asked WebiMax to redesign our website and our mobile website for us."Tremper Longman
