Website Redesign SEO Mistakes to Avoid

first_img Originally published Sep 7, 2010 3:00:00 AM, updated July 28 2017 We’ve already discussed what you need to think about before you even begin your website redesign project , now we’re going to discuss what SEO elements you need to keep in mind once you start the process.Free Workbook: How to Plan a Successful Website RedesignOnce again we turned to our well versed team of HubSpot Partners to gain insight into how they approach the process.Don’t Lose Sight of Your Old SiteSure, your website might need a redesign, but that doesn’t mean everything you currently have is terrible. Partner Tony Meister of NetSolutions Group says “the biggest mistake…would be to leave out 301 redirects consequently sacrificing all the work that was done to get the rankings. On that end, another mistake would be to neglect [thinking] about navigation structure and how the [old] site effectively leverages SEO in the subpage hierarchical navigation.”Even if you do decide to completely redo the navigation, Tony’s first point holds true. Your old site hopefully had some SEO rankings that you, at some point, invested time (either in content creation, keyword research or more) to get. Make sure everything is done correctly in order to not waste the time you’ve already spent on it.Make Sure SEO is Always Being EvaluatedYes, SEO is not the end all to be all when you are redesigning your site. However, that doesn’t mean that it should be overlooked in favor of design, content, etc. Top Line Results’ Todd Hockenberry states, “SEO is [often] an afterthought and not the primary driver that it should be.” While SEO might not be as visually appealing as a great website header or logo, think about which one is more likely to bring leads to your site and invest your time wisely.The SEO ScoopSure there are some people who get downright giddy when they talk about SEO. You may or may not be one of those folks. But even if you aren’t, any good website designed with inbound marketing in mind takes into account SEO strategies. No matter how gorgeous your new site looks, if visitors can’t find you online, no one is going to be able to appreciate your hard work and you certainly won’t see the benefits.

7 Best Practices for a Successful Mobile Check-In Campaign

first_img Mobile Marketing Originally published Jan 4, 2012 3:45:00 PM, updated October 20 2016 Topics: Located at the intersection of mobility and marketing, the “check in” is one of the latest iterations of social media marketing.Location-based social media, such as Foursquare , encourage consumers to “check in” at a business using their smartphone, allowing them to keep the people in their social network constantly apprised of their whereabouts.For example, friends meeting at a bar/club or family members gathering at a ballpark/stadium can check in to those locations using these social media tools. And in exchange for patronizing and promoting their venues via these tools, many businesses reward their customers. Foursquare, for example, bestows the title of “Mayor” on those frequenting a particular establishment the most often during a given period of time. In a nutshell, check-in promotions offer one more channel for marketers to engage consumers with their brands.Before you try running your own check-in campaign, check out these 7 tips for success: 1. Reward the Right Behaviors As with any other marketing initiative, it’s important to provide incentives that reinforce the behaviors you’re trying to induce. If in-store visits are the goal, your check-in promotion needs to reward that behavior. If your objective is creating awareness for a specific product or service, be sure your check-in promotion reflects that. 2. Get the Ball Rolling If you’ve ever been the first one to arrive at a party, you know that awkward feeling when it’s just you and the host until the other guests arrive. Seed the action by offering a special incentive for the first, or the first 10, checkins. 3. Stand Out From the Crowd Anybody can offer 10 or 20 percent off this or that. Where’s the excitement in that? Create check-in promotions that make customers feel special. Hold a monthly inauguration celebration for your “Mayor” during your busiest times, and do it up right. Hand them the proverbial keys to your business, or give them a one-of-a-kind T-shirt or baseball cap. It doesn’t have to be expensive; it just has to be memorable and fun. 4. Keep in Touch… With Your CRM While a standalone or one-off check-in campaign has some value, check-in promos tied into the rest of your inbound marketing programs are better still. Make sure you connect your check-in systems to the rest of your inbound marketing platform so you can analyze the results and leverage the social networks you’re working so hard to tap into. 5. Follow Through in Advance If check-in campaigns are new for you (and for about 98 percent of you, they are), be sure that everything needed to fulfill the rewards is in place before you roll out the campaign and that your staff understands how the campaign works. Almost nothing is worse for a business than setting up expectations and failing to deliver on them. 6. Spur Socialism Remember, this is social media . Use checkins to multiply the uptake on your campaign by reminding and rewarding people who bring a buddy—the more the merrier. Not everyone has to check in; they just have to show up with someone who does. 7. Metrics Still Matter Use your inbound marketing platform to measure and analyze the results of your check-in promotions. Keep an eye on total checkins, total spend, spend per checkin, social influence, and how many other online behaviors (such as email opt-ins, Likes, or tweets) customers engage in.Check-in mobile marketing is just getting off the ground. Every marketer is learning as they go, but here’s the key— learning . Apply solid marketing principles, and test and modify so you can improve with each campaign.
