Websites have become increasingly more high maintenance lately and there is a reason why. As technology grows, such as internet video, keeping a website fresh and current takes a lot more time. But it is worth it. Your competitors websites are using the latest cutting edge technology and you will too, if you don’t want to be left behind. In fact, a fresh website with new articles and videos will get better search engine placement than one that sits around collecting dust. The search engines know that relevant, updated content is good for the searcher’s needs.
Newer concepts such as live article feeds, live chat and integrated ecommerce systems almost mean that a website needs a constant upkeep and monitoring. But how in the world can you afford to have someone on board? Does your current staff even know how to do this? How much will it cost your company to find that kind of skilled labor? Outsourcing is the answer to those issues and more. For as little as $5.00 an hour you can have an Internet trained, virtual assistant to cover these tasks for you. Think about how your company can be a part of cutting edge marketing like this.
