social media optimization (smo) or social seo is the methodization of social media activity with the intent of attracting unique visitors to your website content. smo is one of two online methods of website optimization; the other method is search engine optimization or seo. social media optimization is related to search engine marketing, but is different in a variety of ways; primarily the focus of driving traffic from sources other than search engines (blogs, social channels, directories, etc), although improved search ranking is also a large benefit of successful smo.
pay per click (ppc) is yet another powerful online marketing medium that ensures your advertisement to appear on the search pages every time someone searches for a keyword that is relevant to your business. you need to pay a fixed amount every time someone visits or actually clicks on your ad. the purpose of ppc is to maximize your return on investment (roi) by drawing the relevant traffic to your website and by converting them into potential customers.
what is search engine optimization? search engine optimization (seo) is the science of search as it relates to marketing/advertising on the internet. seo is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a website from search engines via "natural" ("organic" or "algorithmic") search results. typically, the earlier a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine. seo may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, and industry-specific vertical search engines. it is mostly technical and methodical in nature, combining programming with business, persuasion, sales, and a love for competitive puzzle solving into a written form capable of maintaining desired revenue goals while achieving high rankings in the organic or natural sections of search engine results pages. it is not just technical, nor copywriting, nor link exchange, nor search engine submissions, but an intricate blend of over a hundred variables into the fabric of a web site. it is difficult to accomplish without a formal proven methodology and strong proprietary tools.
website conversion rate can be defined as the percentage of visitors converted into real customers within a given time span. ideally, the conversion rate of most e-commerce sites is very disappointing, roughly 2 %. the remaining 98% of visitors leave your website without buying anything. to overcome this, there are numerous conversion optimization techniques including credibility based website design, live chat, persuasive copywriting, amongst others which can dramatically boost your conversion rate.
reputation management is the practice of monitoring the reputation of an individual or brand, addressing contents which are damaging to it, and using customer feedback to get feedback or early warning signals to reputation problems. most of reputation management is focused on pushing down negative search results. netwide media group’s seo team are experts at defending your personal or brand reputation through a proprietary process in which we are able to displace negative listings off of the top pages of all major search engines. this process contains 4 steps: step 1, baseline your current reputation landscape. step 2, create a content repository and secure over 250 social websites/pages on your behalf. step 3, utilize existing content and create new positive content to place on the sites/pages. step 4, execute an seo program to a selected group of these sites/pages pushing them up on major search engines and your negative listings down and out thereby building a shield around your reputation.
Once again I really appreciate the work Mike and yourself put into this and more than anything I admire the level of professionalism you both displayed throughout the process.
Working with Netwide Media Group was one of the best experience I’ve ever had.
I needed my site designed using RTML, a language I was very unfamiliar with and used Netwide Media Group. It turned out to be a great decision to use them.
Not only did they work with me on my payment terms, I was also included in every step of the process and all my questions and concerns were address immediately. Miral and her team worked effectively. I am so satisfied and amazed at the great work they did, it was beyond my expectations. I will definitely work with this company again for all my RTML needs. Thanks to Marc, Miral and her team, I received exactly what I asked for.
Our experience with Netwide Media Group was great, This was our third ( 3rd ) designer we have engaged to complete our site. They are professionals with an emphasis on quality of design as well as product placements. As with any project, we were eager to get our site completed and at some point became frustrated at the speed at which we thought the project should have been moving . These guys remained focus and delivered our site within the time frame promised. Finally, the training received was excellent and we are able to fully manage our back end functions.
Dear Netwide Media Group:
I just logged onto Golden Bulls web site to add some content and all I can say is WOWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
I AM SOOOOOOOO IMPRESSED!
Now my imagination [and my sales presentation] are going into high gear wondering what a next level spice-up would look like when I really want to take this to the next level. We MUST stay in touch cause I want you guys to help me with the next upgrade as soon as I make a few sales. Please feel free to email or call me whenever you like. Marc, Thank you for your vote of confidence and the trust you placed in me. I will continue do my best to make you and Chris very happy that you both went out on a limb for someone you never met. Thank you, very, very much.
I am very pleased with your company and the quality of work, it would be an honor to be added to your portfolio.
The communication with both you and Chris was good, the quality of work was also good and Chris spent a long time walking me through the Yahoo store when he finished, this was most helpful and greatly appreciated! I still have a few questions and will e-mail them to Chris but his work and your service was very helpful and I would be happy to recommend you.
Mike has worked out great with the project. You guys did a great Job on the site! I will be glad to be a reference to you folks.

Peace and Greetings to Marc Gordon,
Thank you so very much for your professionalism that you and your company have shown me. I’m confidant that your company will be the right choice for what I am trying to accomplish. I will call you tomorrow during business hours and we can take it from there. I will fax you everything you also need.
Thank you so much.
It has been such a pleasure to work with you and I wish you only the best. You have been an inspiration to me in your passion and dedication for your business and your willingness to always go the extra mile for your customers.
Dear Mr. Gordon:
Thank you VERY MUCH for the refreshingly professional stance you’ve taken.
Your associate, Mr. Christopher Acebo called, and courteously made the 4-5 changes that were required. He spent at/near 20 minutes or slightly more, and did it in such a kind and professional manner that I was extremely pleased and surprised.
I want to become a “regular” client of your firm. I will be in touch in the very near future.
Dear Netwide Media Group:
Thank you for your professionalism, expertise, and great service. If I come across anyone who needs a website built I will recommend your firm. You made me feel at ease all the way through the web building process. You answered all my questions on a timely basis. Feel free to have any potential customer call me as a referral to how you work!
To the team at Netwide Media Group I must say job well done! Especially, working with Marc and Mike you all were prompt. Within my budget was my main concern and you all had no problem working with that. A project that I was trying to complete for months was completed by your team in record time. Great job and my store look just the same. I’m sure when a potential customer visit my store they’ll be pleased with your work.
Marc and Mike,
Working with the Netwide Media Group team these past few months has been a very positive experience. After explaining my vision for my website, they were able to come up with an extremely creative look. They were very professional, answering all of my questions in a timely manner and in a way in which I understood the process. I definitely recommend their services for anyone needing a website of any kind.
We would like to thank you and your team for all the hard work, we are very happy with the final results. Looking forward working together in the future on fragrance by designer updates and other new projects.
So far I have been very pleased. I hope you understood my hesitation. When you have a bad experience like I did, its hard to trust another company. I’m looking forward to adding products to my website… This should happen in February. I look forward to continuing to work with you. I’m going to need some help with Search Engine Placement and Updates in the future.
Thank you so much for your time, patience, creativity, hard work, and dedication to my dream of seeing Astroloetry.com come to life.
Everything looks good, thanks a lot for making those changes as quickly as you did it is greatly appreciated. Thanks for everything you did a great job, hope to work with you again soon.
