How To Measure Your Website Traffic

modern website design augusta ga

You have launched your website, and now you are ready to see who is visiting, what pages they are spending the most time on, what the most popular content on your site is and how did they find you in the first place??  This is a question I often get asked by our clients in one form or another: How can I see who is visiting my website?

In the video below, I’m going to give you two methods to use to measure your website traffic.  One of the ways is the “technical” way, the other is one that is not quite as technical, but is HUGE in the information it can provide about your website, your visitors and ultimately about your marketing efforts.

Measuring website traffic doesn’t have to be overly technical and confusing.  Something as simple a beginning to track where most of your website traffic sources are coming from (ie: Google Search, Facebook, Radio Ad, Billboard, etc.) with a spreadsheet will begin to give you a birds eye view of what is working well for your business and what needs some work.

I really appreciate your time!  If there is something we can do to serve you and your business, give us a call or contact us online.

Much success to you!

Social Media Marketing: Best Business Practices

current website design evans ga

social media marketing augustaAlive Media’s own Alan Jones (owner/creative director) had the pleasure of speaking to fellow business owners recently at a seminar hosted by the North Augusta, SC Chamber and local SCORE organization. We welcomed the opportunity to share particular trends in Social Media, which platform is best for certain types of businesses, tips when using Facebook for advertising and some practical tools & methods to increase effectiveness.

Here are some of the basic thoughts on social media that we shared during our time:

1. One of the most effective tools we find in utilizing Social Media for your business is to begin with a marketing plan and calendar. This plan will ensure that consistent and relevant information is being posted on a regular basis and puts you top of mind to consumers. Creating a calendar for your plan keeps you on task for when and what times of day to post.

2. With all of the many Social Media platforms to work with, we strongly suggest that you begin with one at a time and master each one before moving to another. In other words, don’t get overwhelmed feeling like you have to know EVERYTHING about Social Media to be effective.  Find which one carries most of your ideal customers and begin engaging with them there. Answer questions, post relevant articles and just create the relationships that will build trust and credibility in their minds.

3. Integrate visual Social Media into your marketing efforts. One of the largest trends today includes photos and video. Platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest and Vine are exploding in the Social Media world and one of the best ways to advertise your products and or services is to Show them what you can do.

If you need assistance with designing a marketing plan and marketing calendar or guidance on which Social Media platform to begin with, feel free to contact us for a consultation.  We partner with businesses on helping them implement social media and even handle their social media marketing for them.
