Our 5S approach to internet marketing ensures a well-rounded online strategy. Each S is designed to be suited for at least one of the following marketing goals:
The five S-es are:
It takes some time for search engines to crawl your site and index it for potential searches. This poses a problem if your site has frequently changing content. Outdated content remains for a while in the search engines, since they do not index your site every day.
To get around this problem, webmasters periodically submit XML sitemaps to search engines as their site's content changes. If done manually, this can be a tedious and time-consuming process.
We facilitate this process by automatically generating an XML sitemap that is compliant with sitemap.org specifications when your site's structure changes. Updated versions of the sitemap are periodically submitted to major search engines such as Google, Yahoo or Bing. We free you from the hassle of performing such activities by making the entire process invisible to you.
SEO automation is most suitable for achieving online branding goals. It is less suitable for achieving online customer acquisition goals due to the lack of control over search engine listings.
An SEM campaign displays advertisements along with organic listings when people perform searches on search engines. In comparison to traditional modes of advertising, SEM brings the additional benefits of targeted marketing by displaying the right advertisements to the right people at the right time.
If you are selling electronics, surely you don't want to waste your advertising budget by displaying ads to people searching for shoes. SEM saves you costs by displaying your ads only to people performing relevant searches.
Now that people get to see only advertisements relevant to them, how can we be sure that they are sincere buyers? With SEM, you will be able to further filter out unlikely buyers by preventing ads to be shown when keywords such as "free" or "diy" are searched along with your product keywords.
When people search for a particular item in the search engine, chances are that they are at the stage where they are more likely to purchase the product as compared to a random person coming across an ad in a newspaper. Your ROI (Returns on Investment) is increased multi-fold when ads are displayed to people only when they are in the final stage of their decision making process.
Setting up and managing an SEM campaign is time-consuming and requires specialized expertise. We provide consultancy and management services for setting up and monitoring Google AdWords accounts so that you are freed from the hassle of dealing with SEM campaigns.

Manage email advertising campaigns with the streamlined email marketing features built into your CMS website:
Streamlined email marketing is most suitable for achieving customer retention goals. It is less suitable for achieving customer acquisition and branding goals due to the prevalence of unsolicited emails (SPAM). Advances in email client programs means bulk emails mostly end up in the SPAM folder. Even if it passes the SPAM test, customers are likely to delete emails from unfamiliar-looking senders due to the growing fear of computer viruses. For these reasons, it is better to use email marketing on existing customers whom you have had prior email exchanges.
