If you have not taken any steps to digitally transform your business you should. During the pandemic many businesses had to change their priorities and work on digital transformation to attract leads. Most B2B businesses have effectively replaced all or most of their in-person services with digital. Last year WSI hosted a variety of practical webinars to help businesses effectively implement digital marketing machines. In this blog, we’ll share some of the key takeaways from our top-rated webinars during the last year.

Five Ways to Digitally Transform Your Business

Digital marketing is constantly changing and evolving. Some of the marketing channels you used when you started your business may not work as effectively to grow your business today. If your company is not seeing growth and more website visits, it may be time to update your digital marketing strategy.

At one of the WSI webinars done last year titled “five tips to digitally transform your business” the following tips were discussed:

  1. Attract prospects using by implementing an inbound marketing strategy (SEO, PPC, content marketing, and social).
  2. Convert visitors on your website with the use of conversion tools, software and develop a better user experience.
  3. Close leads by tailoring your website to clearly show the value you provide to your customer (personalize the content, use call to action messages, and focus on what is important to your target audience).
  4. Use online reputation management (ORM) to control online conversations about your company.
  5. Measure and increase the online visibility of your company and brand using Google ads, website analytics, etc.
