Broadcast Your Business To The World with Web Design, Social Media, & Internet Marketing
Being a business owner means you wear a lot of hats. You’re so busy working in your business that you can forget to work on your business. Far too often, the digital marketing for the business can go to the back burner. Plus, it can be hard to know where to spend your time, money and energy. That’s where Make It Loud can help.
Make It Loud is an award winning digital marketing agency that helps small to mid-sized business owners establish and maintain a professional presence online. These days, it’s not enough to have a great looking website. You need other ways to increase the visibility of your business. We can help you do this through:
There are many different pieces of the digital marketing puzzle, and the staff at Make It Loud has the experience and expertise to help make the right decisions for your company. Our goal is simple- to help you put more food on your table.
For more than 12 years, now, we’ve been working with business owners to help them decide the most cost effective way to market their business. Recognized as an industry leader in the Atlanta area, we’ve won several Pinnacle Awards, and we provide the speaker series presentations at the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce. We have our retail shop over by the Mall of Georgia where our customers can walk in and talk to us during regular business hours. Our staff does all the work- no outsourcing to other countries!
Far too often, people come to us and tell us their nightmare stories about “web designers gone bad” or digital marketing firms that haven’t lived up to the hype. That’s why we work hard to under-promise and over-deliver. We feel sort of obligated to make up for the mistakes of those before us.
Once we take on a new client, our digital marketing consultants do everything we can to learn about his or her business- so much so that many of our clients consider us part of their team. We really do strive to be the outsourced marketing arm of their business. We recognize that online marketing is essential for the success of your business.
After an initial consultation which we can either do in person or over the phone (or Skype!), we will help you develop an appropriate digital marketing plan for your business and industry. Together, we’ll outline a strategic plan to help increase the brand awareness of your business. After all, if your customers don’t know you exist, it’s hard for them to pay you to do what you do! We’ll help you assemble all the right pieces of your marketing puzzle.
It’s hard to think of brands like Nike, McDonald’s or some of the big boys in business without seeing their logo in your mind. A logo helps communicate your brand in mere microseconds. A great logo helps increase your brand awareness and gives your potential customers something to recall whenever they decide they need you.
At Make It Loud, we provide experienced logo design. We’ve been creating logos for companies all around Atlanta since our very first customer more than 12 years ago. Nothing is more satisfying to us than to see our logos on cars, signs and buildings all around Atlanta. When you need to get noticed quickly, let our designers create the logo that sets the right tone for your business.
Having a great online presence begins with great website design. Far too often, people come to us with websites that don’t “work”. It could be that they did them themselves or paid a friend’s cousin’s brother to design it. Some of the sites are “pretty” but don’t convert. Some, well, let’s just say they need a lot of help.
Our designers help you tie everything together to make a great website. This means the images need to help communicate what you do, the layout needs to be user friendly, and of course, the site needs to be mobile friendly. We help you decide what the right call to action needs to be and we will give you a design that will help you convert browsers to actual customers.
Clearly, not all websites are created equally. While many web designers use templates and simply insert the customer’s content, we would rather build a custom website for you that you won’t find anywhere else on the web. We understand that many small business owners are on a budget, so we can provide template websites if that’s what you need. The key is, we’re willing to be as flexible as you need us to be when building your new websites.
When it comes to web design, there are other products that always need to be factored in. To have a website for your business, you need a domain. To make the website live, you need hosting. Make It Loud can provide everything you need. Once your website is live, we can help you with everything you need to market your business online.
Once your website is live, can you find it? More importantly, can your customers find you? It’s a simple fact that your website will never make you money if no one can find it. That’s where search engine optimization (SEO) can help.
SEO is the process of getting your website listed on page one of the search engines for relevant keywords and phrases. With SEO, your site is so well optimized that when your potential customers search for what you do, your site is one of the first they see. Imagine your potential customers are panning for gold and they have to sift through all the search results to find you. We make it easy for your next customers to find what they need- you!
SEO helps increase the visibility of your business which means you’re more likely to get the clicks. More clicks means more calls. More calls means more money, and seriously, don’t we all want more money?
We make SEO simple because once you hire us, we do all the work. This includes:
Most people put more trust in the links they find on page one of the search engines. While SEO can take some time (depending on the industry), the payoff can be huge. In fact, having a well optimized website can help sell your business on a 24 hour basis.
Your business provides solutions for your customers, and people are searching the search engines for those specific solutions all hours of the day. SEO Is a great way to put you and your next big customer together.
Let the SEO experts at Make It Loud get your website on the first page of the search engines. Our job is to get you results! Call us today to help you bring in more business with SEO.
There’s more than one way to put your business on the first page of Google! Adwords or Pay Per Click (PPC) can give you more visibility and bring you more business. With PPC, your business can actually be one of the first things a browser sees when they begin reading the search results. That’s the power of PPC. Make It Loud can make it happen!
Since 2004, we’ve not only been helping business owners around Atlanta establish a better online presence, but we’ve been helping our customers effectively market their business. For certain businesses, PPC can be an excellent way to be seen on page one of Google.
With PPC, you set a monthly budget with Google and build your campaign with words or phrases that your customers might use to find what you do. Once the browser types in those keywords, your ad would be displayed which provides the chance that they would click on your ad and be taken to your website. Each keyword has a price attached to it and your account is charged with each click (from a new person). Once your monthly budget has been spent, your ads no longer show.
Our Google Certified staff offers a free initial consultation to help you determine whether PPC makes sense for your business. During this consultation, we will help you identify what a reasonable monthly budget with Google to help your business be competitive.
PPC provides a business owner with more data than any other marketing tool. This can be great for someone who knows what they’re doing, but it can also be totally overwhelming for someone who doesn’t. We’ve seen a lot of business owners give up on PPC because they lose sight of what’s important in their campaign.
Make It Loud will create and manage your entire PPC campaign from start to finish. After our initial consultation, we work hard to make it a turnkey solution for you. Once the campaign is live, we make all the necessary adjustments to get your ads displayed as prominently as possible based on your budget. The more you are seen, the more likely you are to win the clicks. PPC can be a great way to bring more business to your website, and often, it brings customers more likely to spend!
Let our experience and expertise with PPC help you improve your business bottom line. Call today to set up that free consultation.
The biggest increase in digital marketing expenditures this year is for social media marketing. It’s imperative to have a solid presence on the social media sites your customers frequent most. That’s why it’s important to pick the right social media channels for your business and industry.
The staff at Make It Loud has experience you need when it comes to establishing the right social media presence. Being active on social media helps establish your business as a leader in the industry, helps with customer service and increases your brand awareness.
Make It Loud will help you develop the right social media strategy for your business and help you identify the right metrics for your goals. Plus, social media marketing is the most cost effective marketing on the planet- especially when it comes to measuring the cost of brining in new business. Isn’t it time you begin to use all the tools available to bring in more business.
There are thousands of ways to make mistakes with social media marketing, but far too often, we’ve seen business owners make the same mistake over and over again- and that’s not using social media at all. It’s like wanting fish for dinner but never putting a hook in the water.
Rest assured, you next customer is looking for you on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter or some other social media site. If you’re not there, you leave the browser no choice but to find a competitor who is.
We hear a lot of business owners say they just don’t have the time to be active on social media. Our push back is that you may not be able to afford not to. That’s why it’s important to talk to experts in the field of digital marketing to help you determine what strategy might be right.
