Have Your Own Domain
Give your page its own domain name to add that professional touch.
Most professional web pages use their own domain name, which either describes what they do or includes they’re company name. Something like kingsroadcafe.com or johnscarservice.net. You can choose to register a domain name (.com, .net or .org) through PageProud or use any domain name you already own; even if it’s a local domain name like .co.uk or .it.
Send Email Newsletters
Accept subscriptions and send out email newsletters. Once you’ve managed to bring people to your web page it’s important to keep in touch with them. PageProud allows you the facility to place a newsletter subscription form on your web page that will allow people to subscribe to your email mailing list.
Once they’ve added their email address to you database you can keep in-touch with them easily and regularly by sending out simple email newsletters to your entire database. Use it to inform everyone about a new special offer; your winter sale; an event you’re organising; or just remind everyone that you’re still around.
Choose from two affordable plans that suit your requirements.
If you want to create your page and forget about renewal fees for a year until it’s time to renew, then you can opt for the Yearly subscription. The main advantage is that it’s easier to manage your bills and it’s slightly cheaper. On the other hand, if you have an event that requires a page or only need a page for a short period of time, then the Monthly subscription is the perfect option for you. The monthly cost is slightly more but will give you the facility of only having the subscription active for a short period of time.
Update and Maintain it
Once you’re done, keep your page updated and well maintained.
Your page doesn’t have to remain the same as the first time you created it. You can add on additional features, changes colours and images, update your opening hours and even revise your text. It is important that your page is a one-stop-shop for the up-to-date, correct information about what you do. So, ensure you keep it that way. You can keep the web page up to date using the same page editor you used to create your page - accessible from your dashboard.
Put yourself on the map
Allow customers and clients to find you easily.
Add a map to your page with Google Maps and allow customers to find out where you are easily. All you have to do is zoom in to the correct area on the map and drop a point that will indicate your outlet or premises. It’s that easy. People seeing your web page, can then easily see where you’re located and come right over.
Rank well in Search Results
Hardly anyone uses the phonebook or trade directories anymore. Today people use search engines when looking for a product or service.
If you’re not available online, then you’re nowhere to be found. When creating a page using PageProud, your web page will be created with search engines in mind so that people looking for you online will find your page, and find out about you. Your page will be created to be search engine friendly so that we can give it all the more chance of ranking well in Google search results for words that are relevant to your page. You can also use the Rank feature to edit the hidden keywords and description (META keywords and description) of your web page.
Set up a contact form and get feedback and enquiries directly from your web page.
With PageProud you can set up a contact or feedback form that will allow users to fill in and submit an online form on your page. You can also create your own form and specify what form fields you’d like to include. Create an event application form, a booking form, a customer feedback form or any other form you have in mind. The details that people fill in and submit will automatically be sent to you by email.
Promote your page on social media portals like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn.
Once your page is looking good, show it off! It’s useless having a great looking page that no one knows about. Using your PageProud dashboard you can easily post your page address to Google+ and Facebook, inviting people to have a look. You can also do the opposite and invite people using your web page to keep in touch by liking your Facebook page and to follow you on Twitter. You can also provide people with links to all your other social media pages.
