Semalt: How Online Branding Will Raise Your Individual Profile

- - SEO

Whether you have a solo enterprise, mid-sized business or part of a franchise within a bigger organization, brand awareness is just as important to your growth as it would be essential for any big corporation. You may think building your brand awareness right now is a waste of resources, because you are just an entrepreneur or self-employed business owner but this is quite the opposite of the truth. Michael Brown from Semalt Digital Services shares the insight on how online branding will raises your visibility and foster business development.

Building a brand is important for establishing a connection with customers. People tell others about the positive experience, therefore the word-of-mouth spreads and fosters your business development. The buzz will make your business bigger, and, perhaps, you will gain the attention of media.

Behind it all, is you. As the founder of the company, you are the CEO and the face of the organization. Your business can become as big and successful as you want it to. Some people dream of this type of success, while other individuals prefer to keep their company small and manageable. Either way, the main reason to implement a recognizable brand is because customers will associate your services or products with YOU, as an individual.

Think of many great personalities, that once started small, have risen to the top by building a strong brand. Think of Colonel Harland Sanders of KFC, a chicken fast-food franchise that began in a small cafe in Kentucky in the U.S. in the 1930’s and then expanded to the UK and Ireland in 1965 as part of what had become a massive franchise. Yet, the real person behind it all, “The Colonel” is the face and behind the company. As a result, KFC’s branding is highly successful because of his superior product, distinctive personality, trustworthy promises and guarantees. Plus, their catchy “Finger Lickin’ Good” phrase made a memorable tagline that reeled people in.

How can you raise your individual profile by creating a strong brand?

Get straight to the point with a powerful phrase and logo. By using as few words only, you must convey the message of what your business stands for.

These days, anyone can set up a website that makes their company seem larger than it really is. Sometimes that is a good thing, depending on whether you offer products or services. Study your competitors and their branding strategies, then write down several ways you could outsmart them.

Creating an online brand to raise your profile can be done through:

  • Promotions and advertising
  • Compelling visual aids – either photographs or artwork, graphics
  • Public relations
  • Emailing campaigns and newsletters
  • Clever taglines
  • Top-notch support and communications

Branding is a strategy. It is the way to tell your customers that your service or products are worth using. Branding online requires a consistent approach. Combination of visual and contextual experience presented online reflects your face as an offline company. As an entrepreneur or small business owner, you will find it beneficial to market your business under the name of recognizable brand.

The Best Form Plugins for WordPress 2017

- - Wordpress

Forms are used for various of things. One example is a form for a contact page. Every website owner should know how important a contact page is for their website. That enables a website’s visitor to get in touch with the site owner (I know there is social media, but some folks still love the good old email system). The rest are for requesting a quote, signing up on a newsletter, and the list goes on.

WordPress is such a great CMS, no doubt about that. One reason is the vast number of plugins available in their respiratory. But which one should you pick for a form?

The Best Form Plugins for WordPress

In my blog post below, I will be listing and discussing the Best Form Plugins for WordPress. These are based from my experiences with each plugin, other’s experiences, based on popularity, and reviews.

So let’s list the best form plugins for WordPress.

Contact Form 7

Contact Form 7

Contact Form 7 is probably the most popular (Having over 1 million active installations) and free form available for any WordPress website. It can be downloaded directly in WordPress’ plugin respiratory. This powerful plugin can handle multiple contact forms allowing your site’s viewership to contact you directly.

Simply its the best form plugin for WordPress I’ve found so far. Does exactly what it says and in a simple manner, and works seamlessly with pages and posts. – @steven-c-wyer

Gravity Forms

Gravity Forms

Gravity Forms is a premium WordPress forms plugin, pricing ranges from $39 to $199. It has over a million downloads. It features a form builder which enables users to quickly build and design their WordPress forms.

I have an active Developer License ($199/year) of Gravity Forms which are installed and used by some of my clients’ websites which requires advanced functionality. So if you only need a simple form, then Gravity Forms may not be for you. Considering it costs $39 – $199/year, there would be other options to choose from. Although, if you need advanced functionality, then this plugin may be the best form plugin for WordPress.

Ninja Forms

Ninja Forms

Ninja Forms is a freemium plugin which has a very easy implementation of forms for WordPress. The “lite” version of this plugin can be downloaded from WordPress’ respiratory. It has limited features, and may require you to purchase a license if you’re looking for something powerful.

I am very new at building websites and found the Ninja forms and the download to Excel terrific to use. – @vltrnjd

This is a great plugin – looks good, integrates well with different apps and is easy to use. – @daniel078

Caldera Forms

Caldera Form

Caldera Forms is a freemium plugin which can create beautiful, responsive forms with a simple drag and drop editor. This forms’ visual editor simplifies form building for your WordPress website. Anti-spam, AJAX, notification emails, and database entry tracking are enabled by default. Addon features are available for a cheap price.

Take it from me, I use Caldera forms in my websites and clients’ websites aswell! A very handy one for sure which makes it to our list of best form plugins for WordPress.
