SEO and WP Web Design a creative form of art, too
I’m an all-around creative soul. I love being in Nature. Being in the forest, even with ticks and snakes, satisfies a part of me nothing else can. When I am in contact with the fertile earth, I’m happy.
But there’s another side to me who loves the creativity of working with the internet. I can sit in front of the computer digging deep into graphic design or Google Analytics and never realize hours have gone by.
Web Design has long been a passion and although it’s different and perhaps uses another part of my brain, it’s still a sort of artwork. In order to get more traffic to my site, I got into learning about the statistics of visitors to websites, and how to influence the flow of them by using this thing called SEO (Search Engine Optimization). This is results-oriented passion satisfaction.
And so that’s how Wild Ozark became all rolled into one entity consisting of Nature, Fantasy, and Tech. When Rob is able to build his shop there’ll be Woodworking added to the mix.
The Wild Ozark tech business (SEO and WP Web Design) is called Listen. Why? Because a website is a form of communication. To communicate effectively a person first has to listen. I “listen” by keeping track of what brings users to my site and then I give them what they’re searching for. I “listen” by observing statistics like “organic search results”, “bounce rate” and “visitor paths” and make changes to the site that raises and lowers the rates and varies the paths. By listening to the keyword phrases people use to find my site I can better serve my customers and communicate myself better.
Wild Ozark can Help
I can help you do this too. If you want to learn to do it yourself, I can teach you what I’ve learned. And if you just want me to listen for you and make the changes to your website, I can do that too.
Listen is geared toward helping the very small businesses and authors of our local community but I’m open to going farther afield to help if you live outside of the Huntsville, Arkansas area. The initial consultations are free to those in the local area but will necessarily cost something to travel unless you want to handle it all over the internet via email.
If your business doesn’t have a website or you want a new and improved one, I work with the WordPress platform exclusively and can build your site or teach you to build your own.
The Listen website is http://listen.wildozark.com. I’d love to see you there!
