How can social media help my business grow?

Social media platforms have more than 2 billion users. This means that your customers are already on these platforms and you can use social media to connect with them eg through effective advertising campaigns.

You can also leverage social media to grow your brand and get more website traffic. Your social media pages also help to improve your search engine rankings.

In short, social media holds a lot of potential for the growth of your business if you can take advantage of it. 

 

 

 

Do I need social media pages for my business?

In short, yes. This is because social media is a great way to connect with your customers. They can easily communicate with you without coming to your website or sending you an email.

Another reason is that your competitors are on social media and having your own pages shows that you are moving with the times. 

What is a domain name?

A domain name is your website name eg in our case its www.taydigital.net A domain name is used for finding and identifying computers on the Internet. Computers use IP addresses (which are a series of numbers) to identify each other on the internet.
An example of an IP address is 37.120.138.68
However, it is difficult for humans to remember strings of numbers like the one above. Because of this, domain names were developed and used to identify entities on the Internet rather than using IP addresses. A domain name can be any combination of letters and numbers, and it can be used in combination of the various domain name extensions, such as .com, .net and more. Before you can use your domain name you need to register it as every domain name is unique.

 

Choosing a domain name can be a bit confusing but at Tay Digital we got your back! We will help you choose one that is well suited to your brand and audience. Hope this answers your question and thanks again! #LetsGrowTogether
