Your website is the foundation of your marketing
Do you know how much traffic your website is getting? Do you know how many leads your website generates? What are the most visited areas of the website? Unfortunately, many business owners don’t realize that their website is the foundation of marketing. The website should be your most active sales machine — a multi-tasking marketing tool that attracts, engages and delights your audience.
Bragg Media specializes in WordPress website design and typically go through an inbound marketing process in which we target the right type of traffic for your brand — the people who will most likely buy what you’re selling.
How does an inbound marketing website work?
An inbound marketing website aims to attract strangers by turning them into visitors, converting them into leads, closing the deal as customers and delighting them into being promoters.
A key component to inbound web development is content marketing that aligns with business goals and targets the right audience. Bragg Media’s marketing team uses your audience’s pain points to construct web content that should include:
Search engine optimized website pages that have staying power
Blog articles that your audience can relate to
Calls to action (CTAs) for free ebooks full of helpful, no-fluff information that will convert qualified leads to customers
Robust forms to capture information so you can target emails directly toward qualified leads
An automated chat bot preprogrammed to answer frequently asked question and set appointments
Marketing automation deck with real-time access to analytics, emails, social media and customer relationship management (CRM) system
Do inbound websites generate leads ?
You’ll generate leads by showing up earlier in the buying cycle. With an inbound website, you nurture leads gradually, from first touch to final purchase — because marketing is built into the web development.
When we first approached Bragg Media, we were looking for a web site builder who could give us the best site AND ongoing support. Their team asked insightful questions to grasp our sales focus and needs, walking us through the transformation, and ending with a site that we love. They have been readily available for questions and quick changes. And I’m also happy knowing that they keep up on the latest security.

When can I expect my new website to generate results?
The answer to this question depends on the amount of digital marketing built into your website. If a web developer or digital marketing agency says anything more than that, look elsewhere.
The truth is search engine optimization (SEO) is constantly changing as buyer behavior changes. Being on the first page of Google is less important than it was five years ago, because there are a multitude of marketing channels that can get you qualified leads faster than you can say, “keyword optimization.”
For those who want more than a pretty website, Bragg Media offers a strategic website design approach. This in-depth consultative and research process involves identifying the audience; understanding their behaviors; and marketing the website toward your audience’s pain points, challenges and typical overall personality. It starts with the Bragg Strategy Session.
