Vistaprint Expands Its Internet Marketing Tools for Micro Businesses
“What we’ve found is that our micro business customers want their website found in online searches - especially in local search results—but they don't know where to start or the best practices for search engine optimization,” continued Pegden, “We've built our tools to do most of the work so customers can focus their time on more important things, namely running their business.”
The addition of blogs to Vistaprint's Website product also provides a valuable tool for micro business owners looking to increase their interaction with their customers and to generate more relevant content for search engines. Blogs allow business owners to share information about their products or services as well as their industry, attracting additional visitors to the company site and improving their website ranking. The new feature allows Vistaprint website customers to seamlessly integrate a blog it into the look and feel of their existing site design. Users can post content and images and manage their comments, categories and other settings from an easy-to-use dashboard interface.
In an attempt to further educate their customers about internet marketing, the company has also rolled out a social media initiative in conjunction with the new tools and upgrades. With the Vistaprint Internet Marketing blog, customers can receive tips and advice on gaining a stronger presence online as well as how best to use Vistaprint’s internet marketing tools. Those looking to connect with the internet marketing team directly with questions and comments can follow them on Twitter at http://twitter.com/vistaprintweb. Customers can also share ideas and interact with other customers at the Vistaprint Internet Marketing Facebook page.
