In today’s digital world, your online presence is crucial to the success of your business. That goes for companies large and small, including small businesses in the wastewater industry. Are you struggling to stand out among the competition? It’s always a good time to review your digital footprint and make adjustments as technology quickly changes. 

In the same way you would buy new shoes to step up your style or your game, it’s time to step up your online presence with these five tips: Optimize your website for search engines, create valuable content, leverage social media, use email marketing, analyze data to drive more traffic to your website and improve your online visibility. You can dive deeper into any of these strategies through your own online research; then take action. 

First, these are common mistakes businesses make with their digital footprint: 

  • Believing that having a website is enough: A website is just one aspect of a business’s digital footprint. It is important to have a presence on multiple platforms and actively engage with customers on social media.
  • Ignoring mobile optimization: With more and more people accessing the internet on their mobile devices, it is crucial to ensure your website is optimized for mobile viewing.
  • Focusing solely on quantity over quality: Having a large number of followers or likes does not necessarily translate to success. It is essential to focus on building a dedicated and engaged audience.
  • Believing that social media is a one-way street: Social media is not just about promoting your business, it is also about engaging with your audience and building relationships.
  • Believing that paid advertising is the only way to reach a wider audience: Organic reach can be just as effective as paid advertising, by creating valuable and engaging content, utilizing SEO and building relationships on social media. 

Step up your digital game with these five tips to improve your online presence: 

1. Optimize your website for search engines and voice search. Ensure that your website is optimized for search engines by using relevant keywords, meta descriptions, and alt tags. Additionally, consider optimizing for voice search by including long-tail keywords, conversational phrases and using natural language. This will help your website rank higher in search engine results, making it more likely that people will find your business when searching for relevant products or services.

2. Create high-quality, engaging content. Produce valuable and informative content that speaks to your target audience. This could be in the form of blog posts, infographics, videos, webinars, podcasts and social media posts. The more value you provide, the more likely people will return to your website and share your content with others. 

3. Leverage social media and user-generated content. Social media platforms are a great way to reach a wider audience and drive traffic to your website. Make sure to create a consistent brand voice and regularly post engaging content. Use social media ads and influencer marketing to reach even more people. Also, leverage user-generated content, like customer reviews, case studies and testimonials to build trust and credibility.

4. Use email marketing and automation. Email marketing is still one of the most effective ways to reach your target audience and drive traffic to your website. Make sure to segment your email list and send targeted messages to different groups of customers. Additionally, use automation to streamline your marketing efforts, such as sending abandoned cart emails, welcome emails and birthday emails.

5. Analyze your data and optimize for conversion. Track your website traffic, bounce rate and conversion rate using tools like Google Analytics. Use this data to see what works and what doesn’t and make adjustments accordingly. Optimize your website for conversion by A/B testing different elements, like headlines, call-to-action buttons and layout. 


Just like your shoes need an upgrade to keep up with the latest technology, trends and styles, your digital footprint needs fresh new strategies to stand out in today’s digital world. Building a strong online presence takes consistency, time and effort. To gain the competitive edge, you need to step up your game with an improved digital footprint. And just like slipping on a new pair of runners, watch as your business takes off.
