Building a Web Site - Web Design and Programming Do's and Don'ts. Business owners inevitably have many questions when they launch a website. These slides answer many of them, including: What are the best practices for building a website? What tools do I need to have an effective web presence? How do I tell the good web designers from the bad?
Branding & Lead Generation - Integration of the Internet into Lead Generation and Tracking Using Google Analytics. In these power point slides iMarket experts explained how best to track customer acquisition channels and the costs associated with those channels. We also showed how to evaluate "return on investment" to determine which channels are the most profitable. In particular, we explored the valuable online metrics offered by Google Analytics.
Search Engine Optimization - The Basics and Pay-Per-Click Marketing and Google Analytics. In order for a website to be an effective marketing tool, it has to "speak" to the search engines-the online tools that help customers find your company. These slides show how to make sure that Google and the other search engines see and understand the value of your website so that your website gets strong placement in online search results. We also explained how to use online paid advertising to supplement free search engine results.
Social Media and Content Strategy. These slides explored social media and content strategies that service companies can put into practice easily without expert help, plus some advanced strategies that are worth hiring outside experts to implement.

This is a congratulatory letter to iMarket Solutions. We have contracted your services and implemented your Domination package. The results have been fantastic!
What was most amazing to me was the results we are seeing in our commercial division. I believe we at Advantage Airtech erred in just how much coverage we allotted the commercial division of the business. However even with this disproportionate allocation of space on the site the leads are overwhelming.
Our commercial leads are up 320% and are accounting for 78% of our leads. This is quite frankly, a tremendous increase in leads that we never experienced in the past. Our residential leads have dramatically increased as well, I somewhat expected this due to the calibre of the site and the material which is weighted more in the residential. Our residential leads have increased from the 22% of our leads from last year to this year being 54% of our leads.
I have been negligent in thanking you for a job well done as this impact was noticed shortly after launch. The negligence in relaying the good news to you has happened because frankly I have been busy trying to keep up with the leads.
Happy to be aboard with your company!
Advantage Airtech Ltd.

Google is known for changing things up on a regular basis when it comes to their algorithms, but when it comes to the design of their search engine’s search result pages (SERPs), they tend to be a little more careful. When they do make changes, it’s typically done so within controlled test groups (i.e. only certain servers or countries will see the change). As a result, there is usually little talk regarding UX changes on Google.com in comparison to algorithm introductions, updates, refreshes and the like. But late last week, Google introduced a major redesign of their local map pack that is anything but subtle.
