Get Traffic to Your Website

Powered by RIO was initially founded to provide website services to small business owners. The longer we are in business, the more we recognize the need to educate small businesses and entrepreneurs.

So many want a website, but don't understand the importance of web presence. So many think if you have a website, traffic will follow. So many need information and education on how the entire process works.

The fact that you have a website doesn't mean you have website traffic. As a business owner, you need to understand each component of web presence and how they feed into an ongoing cycle. This cycle is necessary to gain clients and customers. Nowadays it takes more than a website. You or someone in your organization needs to understand how everything fits together.

Your social media needs to be relevant and informative and consistent. Your email list needs to be constantly growing so that your message and information is reaching your target audience. Your website content should be updated on a regular basis to remain fresh. The analytics tell you how Google sees your website which is key if you want others to see your website.

It takes strategy. It takes planning. It takes consistency. Powered by RIO promises to get you on the right track. We will either do it for you, teach you how or a combination of both. It's up to you, and any way you choose, you will get results. Get Powered by RIO!

They are proficient with website coding languages such as PHP, CSS, HTML and Java Script, just to name a few. They also know how to work with hosting server platforms with setup, maintenance and troubleshooting.
