Thought of the day: “All of us need to understand the importance of branding. We are CEOs of our own companies: Me Inc. To be in business today, our most important job is to be head marketer for the brand called YOU.”
WordPress Multisite and businesses with multiple locations is a great fit. It’s a great way for growing businesses, franchise concepts and entrepreneurs to align their resources with the right opportunity. Because so much of people’s daily activity now takes place online, having an optimized marketing strategy across all major online channels is almost always a necessity for consistent growth.
A big part of why online marketing can seem intimidating stems from all the different channels you have to address. Another issue is how quickly the online landscape continues to evolve. The good news is an experienced consultant can help you navigate all of these challenges. A big part of getting the most out of online marketing is having a central hub for all your efforts. Since you have complete control over it, a website is a central hub I always recommend.
Given all the different technologies that are now online and the many different devices, people use to look at content, creating a great site can be quite the undertaking. Things can get even more challenging when you’re dealing with multi-location businesses. Fortunately, thanks to my experience our team and I are experts at utilizing WordPress Multisite for that needed solution.
