Building a Strong Internet Presence with WordPress

By Angela Wills

It’s true that a small business may not be able to compete against a large corporation when it comes to national media exposure, celebrity endorsements, and other aspects of high priced advertising campaigns. In the past, a small business owner was limited to the marketing exposure they could receive locally. Thanks to technology, that has all changed. Today, building an internet presence is especially important for small businesses.

A strong internet presence will open the small business up to national exposure and give them a chance to compete with large corporations. Small businesses are no longer limited to doing business in their local area. They can now work with clients all over the world.

The simplest way to start building your internet presence is with a blog. There are many blogging platforms to choose from, most of which are free. This will allow you to have your own “place” on the web, where you can share your views, opinions, and information and start connecting with other people.

When you are ready to take the next step, you can begin building a website. Depending on the type of blog you started, you may be able to simply add pages to it in order to create your website. WordPress, for instance, is a wonderful example of blogging software that you can also use to build a website.

You can also use an HTML editor such as Microsoft Front Page or Adobe DreamWeaver to build your site, as well as site builders you find on the web. If all of this sounds too technical, enlist the help of a good web designer. They will consult with you to determine the look and feel that you would like for your site and then they will create it for you.

Many people turn to the internet every day in search of information. By providing quality content on your website, you are helping the search engines find you, as well as send others to you.

Another way to use information to draw visitors to your website is through article marketing. This is the term used to describe the process of creating articles and distributing them to article reprint directories. Other website owners and bloggers search these directories in order to find content to put on their own sites.

If they select one of your articles, they are obligated to put your author bio box at the end of the article, which you get to write. You can use this bio box to direct people to your website.

Building a strong internet presence can easily be achieved, even by small businesses. It may take a little time, but it will be well worth it in the long run.
