Search Engine Optimization and Organic Promotion - Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is an all-encompassing term that covers several aspects of organic promotion. Milestone's service promotes the website using several different techniques for organic optimization including website optimization for SEO and key directory listings.
It is important to promote your business's website at the local online level: Local search is one of the highest revenue drivers for local businesses. Nearly 30% of queries now have local intent and one-third of the mobile searchers have local intent.
Pay-per-Click marketing, also known as paid search marketing, is search engine promotion where your ad shows as a text link on the top or side of the search engine results page under "Sponsored Links" when people search for things that are relevant to your business.
Email marketing is one of the most effective communication and promotion vehicles in the internet marketplace, and is a revolutionary way to increase sales and profits. Milestone's permission-based email service will help you target, create, and deliver effective messaging with lightning speed that drives action and manages customer relationships.
Milestone works with several brands to promote either individual franchisee websites on brand.com or to promote regional and corporate brand websites. All the promotion strategies described above are applied to the brand website promotion in conjunction with the guidelines established by the brand.
