Web Marketing and Web Design Strategy Help From Scotland
Here at Web Marketing and Design Company ICTADVISOR we help both small and large businesses plan and implement their web design and website marketing strategy. When we are asked to help a small medium sized business, our first question is whether you have a marketing strategy. The answer usually is a vacant stare from most small medium business owners we engage with. Why? Because, to many SME business owners this is kind of an industry speak and language that could be alien to them. Let's admit that, all of us in our respective industries have this alienated language we speak about our products and services and so you could be asking us web marketers, so what is a website marketing strategy, how do I compile one?
Are Small Medium Business Owners Capable of Managing their Own Website?
Some business owners are not interested in managing their own website on a day to day basis.
The small medium business has very few choices if their sole aim is to have a successful website
A business owner tends to put a lot of faith into the web developer. Why?
Because their definition of the web developer is that this developer or design agency build websites to help them market their business online. Unfortunately, there are many web developers and web design agencies that can be great mechanics - they can build websites, but have little or no marketing experience.
So, when the business owner finds their website is not meeting with their expectations and not bringing in the traffic, sales or enquiries they were expecting to get. The finger will immediately point at the web developer or design agency.
Should you Really Blame the Web Designer for Your Failed Website?
That is a difficult question to answer, because the website might have failed under the management of the business owner. But another reason is that the web developer just builds websites and there are many that won't even used the words Marketing Strategy and discuss this with the business before starting to build the website.
Business owners wanting a website either approach the task with a DIY mindset and want to manage the website themselves without any help. Alternatively, they leave all responsibility for the website with the web agency or developer and have them do all the work, or maybe go as far as working in partnership with the developer or agency to put a website together. But even here, problems can arise that can still lead towards having a website that fails.
Today, more small medium business owners are coming to terms with the fact to have a successful website, you have to gain some basic knowledge first and of course lay aside a reasonable amount of time to work at managing your website and not leaving your website project totally in the hands of a web agency or freelance developer.
Having arrived on this page of our website, it might be, that right now you have two issues. One, is that you are looking to have a website for your business and you do have a strategy and so engaged in some research to find out how best to approach building a website for your business. The second issue, is that you might already be the owner of a website, and you have for some time being unhappy with your website performance, and there could be a number of reasons for that. Now you want to have a successful website and have learned you must start by having a website strategy, and more importantly a website marketing strategy.
This web page is about putting together a website marketing strategy as it will map out the journey towards putting in place a website that meets with your expectations.
In recent years having a website marketing strategy has become a relatively new discipline for the small medium business owners. It is easier today for a business owner to have a strategy towards buying a new car than how to plan a website project. To have to look at your website project like you were planning to buy a racing car. In our opinion, the website owner has to act like a racing driver. You have to drive your website towards winning races - in other words to make money for your business.
Driving the Website with a Marketing Strategy That is Your Fuel
If you or someone in your business has the responsibility of actually managing the website everyday, then it is vital that the business owner gets some guidance towards that first step of either building a website or redeveloping the website they already have. You need to have a marketing plan from the outset.
It is strongly recommended you explore how to implement a marketing strategy.

and we could go on and on listing more steps for you to take.
