The Sweet Spot Metho

Over the years, I’ve built a system for website revitalization. It varies slightly between business types, but it remains resilient in structure from one to the other.I call it the Sweet Spot Method.
Roughly, this is how it works. We concentrate on finding the perfect footing for each phase of web marketing, including:
- The web design sweet spot. Every business has a limited budget to spend on their website design work. To spend money wisely, you should know what parts of the design effort pay most dividends. Some things have been shown to be worthless, while others are very helpful. Striking a balance between the aesthetic dreams of a designer and the pragmatic demands of past lessons is the web design sweet spot.
- The content creation sweet spot. Web content is critical to the success of any site, both in the search engines and in consumers’ minds. Creation of this content must be both useful and worth reading as well as search engine friendly. Striking the balance between the two is the content sweet spot.
- The content update sweet spot. Some businesses want to maintain their entire website themselves, something I encourage. Others want to outsource it completely, which can also work if the budget supports it. But there’s more to updating a website than adding the latest press release or new employee. To maintain well ranked, you must always keep search engines in mind. Finding a balance between “free reign” updating and SEO sensibility is what I call the content update sweet spot.
- The interactive features sweet spot. How interactive should your site be? Should you blog? Should your site carry RSS feeds of news in your industry? How about a podcast? For many companies, one makes sense while the others don’t. Somewhere in the collection of new media offerings is the perfect combination for you and your company, which I call the interactive features sweet spot.
