Validating your Domain Name
We wrote a blog post back in December last year to let people know about the new changes that came about in January whereby all owners of top level domain names which include .com, .net and .org domains, are required to validate the contact details on their domain names once per year.
How Live Chat can improve your customer service experience
Did you know that the simple software tool of live website chat can transform the way you communicate with visitors to your website? How great would it be to know in real-time how your marketing campaigns are doing?
Why we choose WordPress as our CMS of choice
We often get asked why we recommend WordPress for our content managed websites, and it falls basically into the following key pointsā¦
DIGITAL MARKETING; GETTING YOURSELF OUT THERE
Putting Yourself Back on the Market Itās an unfortunate fact of the industry that you might have the most mind-bogglingly awesome website on the planet (and weād know, weāve created our fair share of mind-bogglingly awesome websites), but unless people can find it, it wonāt provide the results you require. Here at SO Marketing, working with various digital marketing specialists across the industry, we work to deliver fully-integrated advertising plans designed to drive the right audience members directly to your shiny new website.
GOOGLEāS MOBILE FRIENDLY UPDATE (YES, ANOTHER ONE)
Friends that Just Click Thatās right, you read it correctly; Google are making an update to their search algorithm in a renewed bid to make their service more efficient for mobile users, or so theyād like us to believe. Over the decades, the search engine has taken numerous steps to ensure that user experience rests at the centre of their service; their search algorithms now focus on keyword-rich content rather than invisible link structures, their crawlers measure how responsive your site is to mobile browsers, they even let you play Pac Man on Google maps at one point.
WHY IS THE USER EXPERIENCE IMPORTANT?
Why the User Experience Is Important User experience is a relatively new term thatās being thrown around on the web recently. However, there are still a lot of websites that donāt give it nearly the attention it deserves. Here we help you to understand what the user experience is, and why itās important.
MAINTAINING COMMUNICATION STANDARDS
Keep āEm Talking ā Maintaining Communication Standards People donāt buy from companies; people buy from people. Weāve all had irritating cold calls from anonymous corporations, and spam mail filling up our inboxes. Maybe youāve been unlucky enough to have had your email or computer outright hacked due to an online security flaw.
TIME TO GO MOBILE ā THE IMPORTANCE OF MOBILE OPTIMISATION
Weāll begin by being very blunt ā if your website isnāt optimised for mobile, youāre losing out on a lot of money. In 2014, mobile browsing officially overtook desktop browsing for the first time, making it the first and foremost method of searching the web. Social network giant Facebook reported that by the end of 2014, 526 million of its users were accessing their accounts solely from their mobile devices. If the most successful companies out there are catering for it, why shouldnāt you?
THE BASICS OF SEO
Search Engine Optimisation is a broad and many-layered art ā even if youāre technically minded, it can be tricky to get a handle on its many facets. Here are some facts on the absolute basics.
WHICH SOCIAL MEDIA NETWORK IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
In an age where we live half our lives online, itās no surprise that weāre constantly told to employ social media in order to market our companies effectively. But āsocial mediaā can be a frustratingly broad term, and it can be a trial to work out which one is right for your business. Here we take a look at some of the biggest players, and how they can help you conquer your online market.
