SSL Certificate upgrading to https

4 Benefits of Upgrading Your Site to HTTPS

This is a very important post for any business, organization or individual with a website. Starting now (October 2017), most sites will display a “Not Secure” warning in Google Chrome browser (and eventually others) if they have not upgraded from “http” to “https”.

4 Benefits of Upgrading Your Site to HTTPS

In order to avoid your customers seeing the warning security messages on your website, you are required to purchase a SSL Certificate. What is that exactly?


 

SSL CERTIFICATE

From Go Daddy:  An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website and encrypts information sent to the server using SSL technology. Encryption is the process of scrambling data into an undecipherable format that can only be returned to a readable format with the proper decryption key.

A certificate serves as an electronic “passport” that establishes an online entity’s credentials when doing business on the Web. When an Internet user attempts to send confidential information to a Web server, the user’s browser accesses the server’s digital certificate and establishes a secure connection.

SSL Certificate upgrading to https


4 BENEFITS OF UPGRADING TO HTTPS:

1. Trust – HTTPS notifies users that all data provided from the website they are visiting is trustworthy
and has not been altered.
2. Confidentiality – All all the activity completed on the website will be encrypted.
3. Protection – HTTPS protects sensitive information.
4. Search – Now, more than ever, Google Chrome is putting emphasis on HTTPS in the search ranking algorithms.

 

In order to purchase a SSL certificate, please contact us or your other hosting provider.

Our partner Advertising Is Simple is offering certificates (along with implementation on every page and handling redirects) as follows:

$119 for the first year, $99 for each additional one or $299 for 3 years.

Have more questions about the SSL Certificate and upgrading to HTTPS? Do not hesitate to ask!

The Secret Steps To Gaining An Edge On Your Competitors

5 Secret Steps to Gaining an Edge on Your Competitors

The Secret Steps To Gaining An Edge On Your Competitors

 

Every business industry has to contend with competitors – it is just the nature of a global world where companies can reach consumers, no matter where they are located.

While this can be detrimental, it also could be beneficial. Think on it a moment; competitors make your business work harder to retain and stand out with customers. This can only serve to motivate your business to be its best in order to compete.

To remain relevant and profitable, your business goal should be to analyze and improve customer service in order to gain trust and loyalty. Fail to meet this goal and you could lose customers to the competition.

At Famous WSI Results in Delaware, we understand how competitive the marketplace can be. That is why we have created this infographic on ‘5 Steps to Gaining an Edge on Your Competitor’.

Here are 5 Steps to help you gain an Edge on your Delaware Business competitors:

 

1.Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Wall:

5 Secret Steps to Gaining an Edge on Your Competitors

 

While it may seem that your competitor has a deep, dark and guarded secret that makes them the king of the industry – this is a mere illusion. Take a good long look at all the ingredients that they use to market and cater to their customers. Spend some time analyzing their methodology and soon enough their tactics will reveal themselves.

2.Go Undercover:

5 Secret Steps to Gaining an Edge on Your Competitors

 

 

A great way to discover a competitor’s strengths and weaknesses is to visit them every few months to experience their customer service in person.

While some might consider this undercover surveillance underhanded, I consider it out right smart business. Comparing yourself to the competition not only points out their weaknesses, it points out your own.

Sometimes it is hard to see things from the customer’s point of view. Putting yourself in their shoes may cause certain revelations on how your business can gain that competitive edge. This, in turn, will help in the overall success of your business.

Another way to analyze some of the top ranking competition is to look at the meta data on their website – look at the keywords, titles, and descriptions that they are using which may be leading to their higher ranking with search engines.

You can ‘View Page Source’ of any website with the ‘right click’ of a mouse. In most cases you’ll be able to tell a lot about what types of SEO methods are leading to their success.

 

3.Learn from Other Markets:

5 Secret Steps to Gaining an Edge on Your Competitors

 

As experienced digital marketers, those of us at Famous WSI Results are well aware that there are tried and true tools that work for any industry. Taking a look at what the most successful marketers are doing, digital-wise, is beneficial for any business. SEO tools, Social Media Marketing and marketing automation is the wave of the future – no matter your industry.

4.Actually Use the Data:

5 Secret Steps to Gaining an Edge on Your Competitors

 

Over $20 Billion dollars is spent on marketing research each year in the US. Marketing research entails asking potential consumers what they think about a certain product, service or company.

Why spend the money if you’re not going to use the results to improve customer experience? Take into account what they like and don’t like about your product or service in order to gain their business.

5.Stay Focused:

5 Secret Steps to Gaining an Edge on Your Competitors

 

Finally, competitive research is beneficial up to a point. If you find yourself fixating on the competition to the detriment of your business, stop and focus on what you need to do to improve your company.

Use these competitive edge tips to improve your Delaware business and to stay motivated for success. If you need help – Get in touch with Delaware’s Digital Marketing Experts.

17 SEO Myths to Leave Behind

17 SEO Myths That Should be Left Behind

We have focused upon how important SEO is in creating an internet presence for your Delaware business for the last couple of our blogs. For years now, there have been the #SEOisDead conspiracy theorist out there claiming that search engine optimization is a waste of time.

It would be foolish for businesses to stop including SEO in their digital marketing strategy. The goal of search engines is to take searchers to the most relevant results for which they are searching.

True, SEO tactics today are so very different from what they were a few years ago. At times it has frustrated even digital marketing professionals to determine which of these tactics work and which ones don not.

One thing is clear, Google is rewarding those websites that are optimized across the board for all types of devices; mobile, tablet, laptop and desktop.  They are looking for a variety of quality indicators that indicate a positive user experience.

Google is not going to give as much weight to a website that has a high abandonment rate. If a large amount of users are leaving your website before a page fully loads, that is a sign that you are not providing an engaging experience.

Is There a Future for SEO

Is There a Future for SEO?

Is There a Future for SEO

Just as the numerous conspiracy theories have resurfaced this election season, so too has the unfounded rumors that SEO is dead.

Seriously,  these SEO death rumors have been circulating since 1997. I’m happy to say that there are not many marketers buying into this myth.

Go ahead and Google, “Is SEO dead 2016” and you will find a plethora of articles debunking the idea that SEO is dead. In fact, most of them tout that  SEO is an ever evolving and necessary strategy to work in tandem with social media marketing and other digital advertising methods, such as content creation.

While there is a whopping 4% of marketers out there that believe SEO is dead, the numbers are much bigger for its chance of survival. Actually, if ever there were a marketing sign that a SEO mandate is called for, it is now!

What businesses need to realize is that an effective digital marketing strategy is a lot of various tools, of which the main ingredient is SEO, that need to be implemented in a cohesive manner to achieve marketing harmony. A good digital marketing company knows this and will offer Adaptive SEO packages that will perform much better in the whole, than that of hap-hazard strategies implemented in a piece meal fashion.

For the last month or so, we have advocated in starting with the basics. Getting your house in order (your website, your social media properties and directory listings) is a good place to start. But ending there is not going to help you create the #LeadGeneration that will help you to grow your online presence.

Check out this infographic on why we believe Adaptive SEO will play a big part in the digital marketing arena in the near future and for many marketing light years to come!
