What is website migration?

Website or site migration is a term used to describe an event where a website undergoes substantial changes that would affect its search engine visibility, for example, the site’s location, platform, structure, design, UX or brand name. Website migration is important to stop any deductions in search engine rankings or the value of websites content.

Why should you hire a digital marketing agency?

You should hire a digital marketing agency like Sleeping Giant Media so that the efforts are off your shoulders and onto that of an expert who does this kinda thing day in day out and knows the systems. Hiring an agency takes the stresses off you, and onto the practising professionals to help you boost your business online.

When to hire a digital marketing agency?

You should look to hire a digital marketing agency like Sleeping Giant Media if you’re looking to gain more valuable traffic and results through your website and online presence. There’s no “best time”, you should get going with digital marketing from the beginning, or implement best practices as soon as possible.

How often will results get reported?

At the start of every month, we write in-depth, jargon-free reports for our clients based on the previous month’s reports and will write them for all the services being undertaken for that client. We will also keep communication high throughout each month on any work being completed just to keep clients in the loop and to make sure both parties are happy with any results.

Is PPC worth it?

Yes! PPC is totally worth it, and you don’t even need a GIANT budget to do it. You do however need to set expectations that budgets will have an affect on your reach and impressions when you’re in a highly competitive sector for example. With the right budget and understanding, PPC can do great things for your business.

What are the different types of PPC?

When it comes to PPC (pay per click), there are a few different variations of paid ads; search ads, display ads and remarketing. Search ads appear at the top of search engine results pages (SERPs) when someone searches for something. Display ads are visuals and use images and videos to help better engage a user – these are displayed across the Google Display Network so have a wider reach. And remarketing is where you can target people who, for example, have previously been on your website.

Is PPC better than SEO?

Well, that’s very much up to your goals and what you want to achieve as to whether one’s better for you than the other, but we’d argue neither is more superior than the other. PPC is a great way to quickly acquire leads/sales etc, whereas SEO is a more long term process but it is extremely valuable for your website’s visibility in search engines and online. Both SEO and PPC have huge benefits for businesses, and being used in unison can generate GIANT things.

Is SEO paid for?

No, SEO is a completely organic service and not paid for, unlike something such as PPC which is “pay per click”. The only investment you have to put into SEO is time and effort, therefor that holds its own monetary value that’s definable only by you! We have SEO services, and for a fee will optimise your website and digital presence.
