WHY DIGITAL MARKETING?

81% of all retail customers check out a company online before they buy

According to data from online marketing specialists Invoca

They go to search engines. They look for reviews. And they learn everything they can about the company, its product, and the problems it solves before they hand over their hard-earned cash.

What does this mean if you have a small business in Charleston, South Carolina?

Charleston is currently home to 159,269 people. Of those people, 129,007 will do research on local businesses online before they buy. If your Charleston business has low online visibility, that collective 129,007 aren’t going to come to you.

They’ll go to a competitor. NEWMEDIA are the Charleston SEO experts who can help you get the search engine rankings that make you visible online. With our help, you’ll get your site in front of the thousands of Charleston people (and millions around the United States) who need your services. How? Let’s explore what an SEO agency can do for your business.

Why Does Search Engine

Optimization Matter?

There are three reasons why digital marketing is crucial for your Charleston business:

  • Your search engine optimization efforts build brand recognition.
  • SEO tactics drive traffic to your website.
  • A successful SEO campaign helps you get more clients.

Let's dig deeper.

Build Brand Recognition

The stronger your brand, the most clients you’ll attract. That’s why Media Post’s survey of global marketers shows that most of them rank brand awareness as one of the most crucial marketing metrics:

most important marketing metric

As we can see, two third of marketers across various industries think brand awareness is at least “Very Important.” Better rankings in search engines boost brand awareness by making it easier for your business to be found online.

Make More Sales

Of course, more organic leads won’t mean much if those leads don’t convert into paying customers. But search engine optimization delivers there, too. Check out this chart from Overdrive Interactive:

most important marketing metric

It tells us that a long-term SEO strategy, though time-consuming, eventually realizes an ROI of 32%. That’s 10% higher than the next best digital marketing strategy. Ultimately, search engine optimization puts you in front of more prospective clients and helps you to sell to more customers.

Generate More Organic Traffic

Here’s another chart about the challenges that marketing teams face:

most important marketing metric

This shows us that getting more traffic is the No. 1 challenge that 61% of companies face. SEO helps you to increase traffic. You get the maximum exposure possible because your site gets to the top of search results for the keywords your prospects use.

That exposure puts you in front of more potential customers. And more traffic from organic search results in effective lead generation.

NEWMEDIA's Charleston SEO Services

You can see how powerful a Charleston SEO strategy can be. But you have to get that strategy right. NEWMEDIA is the best internet marketing company in Charleston because we pull together seven techniques to strengthen your SEO campaigns.

Local SEO

What do you think a client types into a search engine if they need a plumber in Charleston, South Carolina?

Do they type “plumber”? No. They type something like “plumber in Charleston” because they’re conducting local searches. With local search engine optimization, you ensure your customers find your business when they do area-based searches. Why is that important? Check out this chart from On The Map:

most important marketing metric

It shows us that 40% of millennials and nearly 30% of non-millennials visit most of the businesses they find in local searches. About 30% of people from both groups visit at least half of the local companies they find online. NEWMEDIA ensures your Charleston business appears in local search rankings.

Keyword Research

Finding the right search phrases to target with search engine optimization is hard. And getting it wrong means your web page ends up being one of the 90%+ that never get organic traffic from search engines:

most important marketing metric

NEWMEDIA helps you to figure out which keywords to target and how to target them properly using the content on your website.

Web Design

Your Charleston business has a simple goal with web development and design:

Make it as user-friendly as possible.

A bad experience on your website is a huge turnoff for your target audience. And most of the people who have a poor experience due to bad design won’t send feedback about it. They’ll just get lost in the ether of website traffic that never comes back, as this stat from Startup Bonsai demonstrates:

most important marketing metric

Don’t let outdated or non-working web design be the reason that 88% of people never come back to your website. Work with NEWMEDIA to create the type of website that offers the best possible experience to visitors.

Improving Website Performance

Expertise.com named NEWMEDIA the best web developer in North Charleston in 2023. Why does that matter from an SEO perspective?

How well your site runs influences how search engines rank the site. If you don’t have a Google-friendly website, you’ll fall behind other Charleston businesses. For example, let’s say it takes about five seconds for your web pages to load. That can happen if the images on the site aren’t optimized or the code running in the background is messy.

Slow site speeds are a major problem, as this chart shows us:

most important marketing metric

Almost 10% of your website’s visitors will bounce away if a page takes two seconds to load. A huge 22.2% will disappear if it takes five seconds. Bounce rates are one of Google’s (and most other search engines) ranking factors. If a search engine sees a lot of people leaving your site as soon as they land on it, they’ll assume that they’re serving a page that doesn’t offer what the visitor wants.

The result?

Your page plummets down the rankings.

Quality web development and optimization from NEWMEDIA ensure that doesn’t happen to your website.

SEO Audit

How does your current website perform, and what SEO services do you need to improve that performance?

These are two questions we answer with an SEO audit. Think of an audit as an opportunity to let the experts peak under the hood of your website so they can find the technical issues that may prevent the site from ranking. That examination includes looking at the following issues:

  • Metadata
  • How you use keywords in your content
  • Whether your images are optimized properly
  • Checking page speeds
  • Checking all internal links and navigational structures work as they should
  • Looking at the quality of the links coming from websites that link to your site

An SEO audit tells you where your site stands right now. From there, we can build a strategy.

Content Optimization

Too many people still think that content optimization means stuffing as many keywords as you can into your content.

That’s not the case.

Trying to optimize your content that way can lead to a penalty from Google. If you get a penalty, Google may take your site out of search results.

That’s not a pretty sight for traffic numbers, as this chart shows:

most important marketing metric

Visibility drops drastically when you’re penalized for getting content optimization wrong. The good news is that the content marketing team at NEWMEDIA keeps your business online and findable with proper optimization.

Content Creation

Before you can optimize, you need to create content. And trust us when we say that good content is the key to your SEO campaign. In addition to being what search engines use to figure out where to rank your site, content is one of the biggest revenue drivers for your Charleston business.

Foleon demonstrates this with its chart of content marketing ROI for business-to-business companies:

most important marketing metric

The lowest ROI (e-commerce) is still over 300%. Most industries achieve an ROI above 500% from content marketing. And the biggest hitter (real estate) gets a whopping 1,389% ROI from content.

The NEWMEDIA marketing agency crafts quality content that helps you rank and guides your prospects on their journeys from lead to client.

Work With the

Leading Charleston

SEO Agency

We work with companies of all sizes, including major brands like Delta Air Lines and the YMCA. Since 1996, NEWMEDIA has helped small businesses grow. With our help, your Charleston company could achieve 10,000% growth in just five years

Delta Sky Club

The new Delta Sky Club website portal, designed and developed from scratch by NEWMEDIA, allows Delta passengers who go online in any of their Sky Club lounges across the U.S. to quickly get news, weather & stock market information, in addition to tracking flights on any airline (not just Delta!), searching directly in Google, and getting maps and driving directions to/from any address on Earth.

California Almonds

NEWMEDIA Los Angeles, in collaboration with Sterling-Rice Group (SRG), built a new website for the Almond Board of California under an aggressive development timeline. We built a multi-language website for them while ensuring a consistent user experience by bringing all four existing websites into a single universal system. Our team of experts delivered this mammoth project even after the deadline was shortened by four weeks.

Six Flags

The Six Flags team reached out to NEWMEDIA for a complete website redesign and multi-site ecommerce web development. We redesigned the website to change its complete look and feel and organized content into categories and subcategories to simplify content discovery for visitors. Over the course of the project, we worked in close coordination with the Six Flags team to deliver the website quickly before their parks reopened.

PostNet

PostNet approached us to completely redesign all their websites, including those of franchisees. We developed a fresh responsive website for them to offer a consistent browsing experience to visitors irrespective of the screen size of the device they use to access the website. Additionally, we developed a tool to help visitors find their nearest PostNet center. Finally, we designed the 300+ franchise websites for them with local SEO and franchise SEO.

YMCA (The Y)

YMCA (now “The Y”) is an organization that we’ve all heard of and/or been a part of at one time in our lives. YMCA of Metro Denver came to us for a fresh website design that would communicate their mission of being for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Even more exciting, they had just had a brand refresh and this was the chance to support that refresh with a complementary website.

Haystack

When CBS Television was producing the show that came to be called Haystack Help, they needed a complex yet easy to use website application to direct the TV viewers to visit, and their search for a Denver website developer led them to NEWMEDIA. Initially, prior to contacting NEWMEDIA, they had selected another web development partner for the project. Then, there was a problem…
