Has your website got what it takes to succeed in 2022?
From domain names and SEO to online marketing and content marketing, in this article, we discuss what makes a website successful so that you can make the most out of your marketing in 2022.
Content marketing covers a wide area, so let’s group what’s important into 3 areas: Customers, Conversion and Search.
If you want to attract more business, then you need to have well-written content that makes customers want to buy from you. Content needs to demonstrate that you are professional, trustworthy, reliable and a great company to buy from.
While spelling mistakes and bad grammar can put off customers, reviews and testimonials can help convince visitors to your site that they should buy from you.
Calling all potential customers…
Of course, having an amazing website with great copy is fantastic, but you want visitors to take action (such as click the buy button or get in touch with you) and that’s where a Call to Action comes in (or CTA for short).
When it comes to effective online marketing, a strong call to action on each web page is the ultimate way to convert website visitors into paying customers.
CTAs are so powerful, yet often so badly undervalued. Effective copywriters for websites will help you make sure that your content is attractive, and that you have the right CTAs on your website.
Don’t forget Google in your content marketing…
We said earlier that your content needs to focus on the potential customer, and that’s true - but you also need your customers to find your website, and that’s where search engines come in.
Think of it like this - great content that convinces a website visitor to buy from you isn’t much use if nobody is visiting your website (if you have ever arranged a party and nobody comes because you didn’t send out the invites - then you’ll fully understand what we mean!).
SEO (which stands for Search Engine Optimisation) is a great online marketing tactic that includes having the right keywords on your websites so that you appear at the top of search results.
A potential customer might search Google for the services you can offer and, thanks to your well-thought out content marketing, your business appears in the search results. The customer clicks on your website from the search results and voila! A potential customer is now checking you out with a view to buying from you.
SEO is a complex area that goes beyond content so it’s important to work with an SEO company that understands what it takes to get a business found on Google. At aprompt, we have proven expertise in this area. Get in touch with us to find out more.

Having an easy to remember domain name can really help with your website marketing. It can also help with your SEO and content marketing strategy.
For new business websites, it’s vital to put some thought into your domain name and make sure to get thoughts and opinions from other people before you register a domain and start creating a new business website.

Keeping it fresh
It might be that your website has existed for many years and you planned and structured your website 5,10 or 15 years ago. You don’t need to make any changes to your website in 2022, right?
Websites can quickly become out of date.
Just like the car industry, the design and look of your website can quickly become outdated. In recent years, lifeless static websites (that used to be acceptable) have been replaced by dynamic sites with high-quality visuals and having a website that’s mobile-friendly has gone from “that sounds a bit futuristic” (sorry Nokia phone users who still play the snake game) to “you MUST have a mobile-friendly website”.
Freshly updated websites are more attractive to website visitors, and they grab the attention of Google bots when they crawl websites to decide which sites have the right content to show at the top of their search results for the users search criteria.
Regularly updating a website should be a key activity for any business that’s serious about achieving success in 2022 and beyond.
