Why You Need To Invest In An Online Marketing Strategy

It is not only the High Street retailers who face increasing challenges as a direct result of the Internet making it easier, more convenient, and often cheaper for the consumer to purchase online.

Any business is susceptible to the risk of losing out to competition if they don’t have a strong online presence. The Internet is our super-information highway. It is where we go to look for local services, to book a restaurant, to research products before we buy, to get ideas and inspiration, to be entertained, to be educated and to connect with others. This is the place your brand needs to have a prominent presence and be easily found.

Total Internet Users Worldwide: 4,208,571,287 people – that’s 55.1% of the total global population that now use the Internet! 16.8% of these are in Europe.

Another great reason to be incorporating video into your marketing strategy! 50% of people on the Internet watch videos and product demons before purchasing anything. It is predicted that 75% of all content viewed online by 2022 will be video.

How many searches in Google: Google processes over 3.5 billion searches every day. That is 40,000 searches every second! In 1999 Google took a month to index 50 million website pages. In 2012, the same task was completed in under 60 seconds.

    We have been dealing with Louise at Whizz Marketing Services along with the web designer that she kindly recommended we use, we have had nothing but a great experience with Louise from her copywriting to SEO marketing strategies. We are grateful that Louise has been patient with us, ALWAYS delivered what we have asked of her and very quickly too, I am not always the fastest at getting back as I have to check in with two directors before I can make final decisions but again, very patient. I feel Louise completely understood the image we like to portray and the content that she wrote up for our website reflects this. Very happy, will be using Louise for many years to come and will recommend to anybody looking for similar services. Also, recommend the web designer that is recommended by Louise as they work hand in hand with each other perfectly. Brilliant communication, friendly and reliable and local too, so glad we found Whizz!

    Louise has a friendly, professional and efficient approach and is easy to work with. I don’t have time to manage the marketing of the business, so it’s great to have an agency I can rely on to do what is needed to keep the brand visibility high in Google and manage the social profiles.  The stronger online brand presence we now have has definitely contributed to the growth and success of my business. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Whizz Marketing.

    Whizz Marketing was recommended to us by our graphic designer back in 2016. Louise very quickly understood what we wanted to achieve with the rebranding and new website, and worked well with the web developer and graphic designer to help produce a site that not only looked great and clearly defined our brand and ethos, but using her SEO knowledge, she made sure the site worked to attract the right audience, increasing our brand visibility in Google and driving targeted traffic.Louise has continued to provide dedicated support over the years as and when we have needed it. She has been very flexible in her approach and is very easy to work with. She has done a fantastic job for us and I would not hesitate in recommending Whizz Marketing.

    Louise at Whizz Marketing has been a great help to us in the re-design of our website and launch of a new marketing and social media strategy. Louise co-ordinated the website design, build and content on our behalf ensuring everything hit the latest SEO requirements. This provided the launch pad for a new blog and social media strategy, which Louise also managed on our behalf. We’re very happy with the new design and our website performance and traffic KPIs are moving in a very positive direction within a matter of weeks

    Whizz Marketing have more than met my expectations. I was struggling to get my website to a consistently prominent position on internet searches. They have put that right. They are not pushey, they are fairly priced, get results, and ideal for small local businesses. I run Yoga Mind and Body which is based in Camberley but I want to get good results in each of the three areas in which I teach: Deepcut, Hook and Hartley Wintney. I am now going to get Whizz to work with me on more generic local marketing in anticipation that it will yield more people coming to my yoga classes.Many thanks Louise and your team.Namaste, JohnstonJohnston Lowry Founder / Teacher / Yoga Mind and Body

    We've been delighted with the service Whizz Marketing provided us at The Homemade Brownie Company. Louise brought great technical expertise to the business and was pro-active with her ideas and suggestions. She was always readily available to support and delivered very impressive results in terms of website performance, website traffic and sales conversions. We would not hesitate to recommend her.
