By current standards, if you don't have a website your business basically doesn't exist. There are many ways to create a website from DIY to pre-designed templates and standard copy to a complete custom-designed site for your business.
At H-Cube Marketing our philosophy is that your business is unique so your website should be too. From design and functionality to copywriting, we design a website that represents your business authentically.
Our integrated marketing system will ensure your website works cohesively with all your materials to create consistency with branded visuals and strategic messaging to capture qualified leads. Many other website design companies provide templated sites with little or no thought as to how everything will work together as a system—lack of integration is the primary reason many people complain that their website is not as productive as it should be. We include integration with Google Analytics and Search Console as well as basic onsite optimization to help get your site found by the major search engines. We also offer additional Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Search Engine Marketing (SEM) services to ensure your prospective customers see your site first.
Building a website without doing SEO is a bit like building a restaurant in the middle of the desert. There are no roads leading there and no signs telling anyone where you are so the likelihood of visitors to your restaurant is small. You can have a great website that represents your business well but without SEO, it won’t be visited and will be pointless if no one ever finds it.
We separate SEO into on-page and off-page categories. On-page SEO has to do with code, structure, and written content. This is extremely important because search engines crawl your website for certain criteria that influences your ranking and visibility. A few examples of what is included over and above our basic website: optimized images, complete tag structure optimization, load speed optimization, internal linking, monthly site audits to improve ranking, and update changes in Google's algorithm.

Off-page SEO is all the factors that affect your search ranking outside of your website itself. These can include things like quality backlinks, social bookmarking, online directory listings, video links, web 2.0 sharing and engagement, press releases, online articles, forum posting, commenting, and niche directories just to name a few. Good results from SEO takes time so it is a good idea to do some SEM or search engine marketing in the meantime to get on the first page of Google right away.
Search Engine Marketing or pay-per-click advertising is the best way to get your site in front of people who are searching for your service right away. The typical SEO program can take 3-6 months to get first page results depending on the market but SEM can get you on page one within 72 hours.
