EMAIL

LINKS

07

Link Building What is it: Inbound links form a critical part of search engine optimisation. Due to the democratic nature of the web, search engines give sites with inbound links a higher ranking.

Each inbound link acts as a vote for your

website. Based on the quality of that link it can be a small vote or a large one. So building links must be done carefully. There is no point building hundreds of links that have little or no value.

have put into our marketing and

Why: Emotio’s focus on building quality links

both within

articles and blogs and on page ranked sites. This mix of links will ensure a long term presence in the search engine. We follow 20 rules in link building to ensure your links are of a consistent high quality even when we are bulk building these links. We can provide as many as 100 links per month which will drive search engine positioning and your sites authority on the web.

“The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.” Joseph Stalin (1879 - 1953)

Syndication

08

Online PR and Articles What is it: Strategically publishing articles or distributing Press Releases on various websites over the Internet improves your businesses exposure as well as increases your sites inbound links. Using focused keywords in the content improves the value of those inbound links and hellps as part of your search engine marketing strategy.

What we do: •

Given a rough script, we can create your

article or press release

Given your article or press release, we can

optimise it

Once ready we can distribute your content

via syndication websites.

Finally we report on results

Why: For a fraction of the cost of traditional press releases, we can send your news release through syndication hubs and accomplish the following:

See your news on top-tier news sites like

Yahoo! News. Increase your visibility and rankings in search engines like Google. Get your news to top journalists and media outlets and drive qualified, ready-to-buy traffic to your web site

Article syndication will help site rankings

in the same way that press releases do.

Done

correctly article syndication can help build a personal or business reputation as an authority on a subject.

AUDITS

“Damon and I have

subject compelling. He

his marketplace and audience.”

Carolyn Henderson Managing Director Warren House

Website Audits TECHINCAL SITE AUDIT

Emotio will provide a technical audit of your site covering issues such as site navigation, search engine spiderability, code analysis, URL’s, redirects and the inclusion of technical enhancements such as XML sitemaps. We would also outline various advanced SEO systems and inclusions that Emotio or your development company could build into your site to improve your rankings.

On page search engine optimisation is only half the battle. If the site is not structurely setup for SEO then whatever the work carried out on page (meta, headings, keyword density etc.) it will be less effective if the site is not set up properly for indexing by the search engines.

Our technical audit will ensure that if your site has not got all the elements to make it a success we will be able to let you know.

USABILITY AUDIT

Often when your website is being built the people closest to it don’t see how difficult the site might be to use. It’s like having an old car. It becomes automatic to lift the door a little when opening it, then pumping the accelerator twice before turning the ignition.

Once the car starts you rev to 5000 for three

seconds and let it come down to a nice idle speed or it stalls. Now think what it would be like to give some one the keys to your car and tell them to go for a drive, they might not even get the door open! Some websites are like this and usability is often a key in getting conversions (sales, enquiries, downloads, etc) from a site.

Emotio’s team will provide a manual audit of a websites usability as well as an expert review of the sites usability.

Furious activity is no substitute for understanding. - H. H. Williams

Brand management and marketing

Why: Branding is the major protection against your company being perceived as just another mundane supplier whose products and services are readily available

from

your

competitors,

leading

to

choice by price. With the worldwide web making it easy to locate your opposition by way of search engines, the need for products and services to be perceived as unique is imperative. The solution lies in projecting a brand image that has been carefully researched, dynamically created and finally applied in a manner that will increase market awareness, whilst enhancing your company’s image.

Emotio can help define what your brand represents to the eyes of your target market.

LITERATURE

11

Design for Print What is it: A well-designed piece of literature will re-enforce your brand and when produced correctly could be a great help in raising your company’s profile. Emotio can design your flyers and brochure to give you the utmost credibility with your target market.

What we do: •

Brochure design

Direct mail

Flyers

Stationery

Postcards

Why: Visually attractive design alone will not necessarily attract new business. To be successful many critical factors must be integrated into the design process. There are many ways to improve the results gained by the use of corporate literature. Emotio have spent years producing creative designs that have resulted in a positive response, to the benefit of our many clients.

For instance, we know it is important for your image to promote the main advantages to be gained by dealing with your company. No matter how well a brochure’s copy is put together, very few people will read every word. We also understand the need for your literature to be sufficiently dynamic to present a clear call to action. There are many other key issues when designing literature but for the best results specific guidelines must be followed.
