Dear Suppliers, Resellers, Colleagues, and Friends,
As the COVID-19 has reached a state of emergency in our country and around the world, we at JP Communications Inc. hope that you all are remaining safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. With recent developments regarding this pandemic, and things changing by the hour, we are more committed than ever to take steps to better serve our customers and our users.
Here are 5 FREE tips to help keep your business optimized and discoverable.
Optimize your website and online profiles for all platforms
Your customers are viewing your site from multiple devices. Are you providing positive experiences? Check that your website is compatible with all devices (Mac, PC, Mobile devices).
It is important to constantly review your online presence, discovering how your audience interacts with your website through various devices. Look at how your online platform appears on PCs, Macs, and mobile devices (android and iPhone). Make sure there is consistency. Report all problems and immediately implement an action plan to correct them. Search out where you have weaknesses and take corrective action ASAP.
Improve your SEO
Investigate Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and local SEO. Retailers will soon be looking for in-stock suppliers more than ever. Search your product keyword and followed by “near me” (eg Men’s shirts near me). Keep local businesses and consumers informed of your proximity. The more informed and attractive your published product descriptions are the likelier new buyers will find you.

Everyone needs to improve his or her SEO execution, implementation, management, and structure. It is important to stay at the forefront of Google trends (people are at home: they are searching online). What new questions or topics are people discussing your industry at this time? You must keep ahead of the new changes which will occur because of the current situation.
Monitor your Google Search Console & Key Word Rankings. Stay on top of this, as there are lots of opportunities if you adjust your approach. Build your Content Bank: now is the time to get writing. Prioritize your top and mid-level funnel contents. Have a stockpile of stimulating content ready to go.
Hire top SEO talent. Now is an opportunity to find first-rate SEO talent. As many businesses may have to reduce staff. This is an opportune time to recruit valuable employees.
Your company’s social media presence is just as important for driving business as your web page. Do you have a business profile on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn or wherever your buyers are? How are you using video marketing to highlight your products and services? Don’t forget to search for the best keywords and hashtags in your post.
In a time of temporary isolation, we need to adapt to the new social practices. Search for innovative ways to stay connected. Engage with your audience in as many ways as possible. Provide assistance for the many people in need. Live streaming and virtual face-to-face discussions solve many of the difficulties.
Customer feedback is even more important in our present situation. Potential new customers are going to judge how you impress your existing client base if they are to trust you with their money. Make sure you are transparent and forth giving to resolve any issues with your clients.
Focus on your online reviews to build rapport with your users. Reviews can influence consumer decisions, gain customer trust, establish your creditability, improve SEO, drive traffic to your website(s), and help you establish your brand. It is important to get positive reviews from loyal customers.
Social Media and B2B online platforms like Top Ten Wholesale help you get discovered. Are you taking advantage of all FREE services that support your industry (eg Manufacturer.com)?
