AMP’s SEO Evolution
Today, research shows that 76% of Americans have internet access. And they spend 13 hours per week online, as much time as they spend watching TV. The reality is, however, that most conventional advertising is steadily declining in it’s effectiveness. TV ads has given way to DVR, magazines ads have been replaces by banners and PPC, radio has been eclipsed by iTunes, XM, and Pandora. And worst of all, the Yellow page ads have been destroyed by Google search. Think about it, when was the last time you searched in the yellow pages?
You Cannot Afford to Be in Business, And Not Participate on the Internet.
Great you say, I have a website! Well hold on… while you may already have a beautiful website, you must realize that having a website is no longer enough to succeed. Once you have a website or a listing, you must drive traffic to it so it can be FOUND!
And if your website is lost in the universe of other sites where no one can see it, it’s simply a waste of time, money, and effort
With at least 8.3 billion pages of content on the web, this means that search engines are the gateway to everything that is the internet – business, communication, and entertainment. Consequently, the percentage of internet users who use search engines on a typical day has been steadily rising from about one-third of all users in 2002, to a new high of just under one half (49%), as recently determined by the Pew Institute.
One thing is for absolute certain… as sure as death and taxes… the internet will be around in the future and it will be more crowded. The internet will not just do more and attract more people, but it will also be integrated into everything you and your clients do from home and entertainment to car and work and everything in between.
The fact is that as a small business owner, you can’t afford to not be on the internet and you can’t afford to not be found by your target audience via the search engines. Let’s face it, the Internet has become the biggest marketplace in the entire world, and it is not slowing down any time soon.
So, the Only Question that Really Matters is, Are You Going to be Found or is Your Competition?
The reality is…
- The internet will continue to be more accessible and more popular
- There will be more pages of content and therefore more competition in order to be found and;
- The only real way to find things and be found on this medium will be through search engines
The trouble is most people aren’t even searching past the first page. So if you are not ranked on the first page, forget about being found. In the brick and mortar world, the mantra has always been… location, location, location. In the new world, the mantra is rankings, rankings, rankings. In order to take advantage of the internet, and to be found, you must be ranked in the search engines on page 1.
And the only way to do that is via search engine optimization. The bigger the internet gets the more search engine optimization will be necessary to help people find businesses. Don’t the leave the future of your business up to fate.
The opportunities to connect with your target audience on the internet are immense and will only continue to grow larger and larger … and not just for local markets, but for national and global markets as well. And in a way that is more cost effective than it has ever been in the entire history of the world.

5 Star Reputation Marketing
Do you stand out from the crowd?
If so, this could be great or it could be really bad for your business? Your business is defined by what appears on Google, Yahoo and Bing, Yelp and all the other review sites. You see, with the advent of local search engines like Google+ Places, Yahoo Local, and MSN Local, your customers can now go online to rate and review your business 24/7. Not only that, your business can show up negatively in the press, appear in rip off reports, attacked in social media or blasted on blogs or in forums by disgruntled employees or even your competition. Your business is really only one negative review away from having a bad reputation. Do you really want to leave such a major determinant of your business success (or lack thereof) in other peoples’ hands?
Remember… all marketing is either enhanced by reviews, or completely destroyed by it.
This is great news if you are getting positive ratings and rave reviews. On the flip side, this can be quite the downfall for your business if you are getting bad ratings and less than stellar reviews. Know this, 71% of people say they are more likely to buy a product or service as a result of an online recommendation or social media referral. The fact is, if you are doing business, you can’t survive without positive reviews. And if you are not showing up in the search engines in ways that support your business, then you are unfortunately turning away business to your competition and leaving money on the table.
Long gone are the days were it was enough to just establish your online presence. And now gone are the days where you can simply “manage” your reputation. No ordinary reputation will do. Your business needs and deserves an untouchable. A reputation that will serve as a key asset for your business and will command the authority, trust, respect, and likability your customers/clients/ and patients crave to see.
Keep in mind, your business WILL have an online reputation, whether you choose to build, manage, or market it – plain and simple. So, you need to create methods and strategies that help your business build and market a untouchable reputation. At AMP, we call this a 5 Star reputation.
AMP knows how hard you work to satisfy customers.
Don’t get black listed by customers or clients that leave negative reviews about your store or site. As the internet grows and technology progresses, protecting your business brand may seem like a difficult task. With the help of a professional online reputation manager you can change your current reputation and proactively build a positive reputation for your business that you can be proud of.
