The new year has begun! Make this year better than ever with tips that will make your business look more credible and professional.
1) Track mentions of your company with Google Alerts
If people are talking about your biz, make sure you're in the know! There might be exciting news you want to share further through your social media channels, or if an author has written a story on you, you may also want to reach out to them to compliment their work or offer your input for the future.
It can be worthwhile to set up alerts for your competitors and key industry terms- knowledge is power!
2) List your business on directories, and use free online promotion channels

3) Take advantage of having custom domain emails
Your Website.com account includes customized emails- make sure you set them up! An email @your domain name instantly adds a boost of credibility to your business. When networking, listing a customized email account on your business card is especially great.
4) Create a personalized email signature
A personalized email signature conveys a sense of professionalism and can add context to your conversation, especially if you are interacting with someone for the first time. Your personalized email signature can also act as your online business card. Remember, however, to keep your signature short and sweet! No more than three lines should be a safe length.
5) Use high quality images on your site
Professional, high resolution images on your site adds instant credibility to your business. Make sure images are "crisp," a pixelated image is something that visitors will notice right away.
Website.com users: comb through the Website.com image library- there are thousands of professional stock photos that are included free for you to use! We are constantly adding more images to give you even more opportunities to make your site look amazing.
6) Be mobile friendly!
These days, being mobile ready is essential. Don't let smartphone users slip away.
Website.com users: making a mobile version of your site is super simple. In the site builder, just click on the mobile icon on the top left corner. Make sure that the mobile version of the page is turned on as well!
