Make your site work for you

Once you’ve got your site exactly how you want it, it’s time to start putting it to good use. Here are some essential elements in making sure you’re getting the most out of your UENI page.

11. Onboarding Meeting Completed

We know a lot of people want to talk to an expert directly, rather than reading a guide (no matter how good it is). That’s why if you signed up to our Lifetime Deal plan, you have the opportunity to book a 30-minute chat with a UENI Website expert through your Hub. They’ll help you with Editing your website, marketing your business, or even giving your website a complete facelift if you prefer.

12. Share Your Page Widely

It doesn’t matter how great your website is if no one knows that it exists. Whether it’s through Social Media, WhatsApp, email, or another avenue, sharing your page is an essential part of making sure your business is set for success.

13. Link your shop to FB/IG

If you’re selling products, you’ll certainly want to sync up your shop with a Facebook and Instagram shop. For more information on getting the most out of your Instagram account, in particular, we recommend this post.

For setting up Facebook, we recommend you check out this guide.

14. GMB: Built, Verified, Connected

Making sure your Google My Business is correctly connected to your site is a great way to help increase your online visibility. Through your UENI Hub, you can make sure that your GMB is connected to your business properly.

For any questions regarding Google My Business, check out our Help Center’s GMB repository.

Google Reviews Enabled For Your Website

Having Google Reviews synced for your website allows you to host them directly on your UENI page, so prospective clients and customers can see how excellent you are.

To enable Google Reviews on your Website, please follow these steps.

Share Your Review Link to Customers Online

Once your GMB is set up and your Reviews are properly synced, you should share your Review link with your customers and encourage them to leave reviews.

You can find this review link in the Clients Tab of your Hub at the bottom of the page.

15. SEO: Target Local Terms

By targeting a smaller area, you will rank higher since you are competing against fewer competitors. For example, if your search term was “Burgers in the UK” then you would be competing in the rankings against all the big chains (McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s, and so on) plus well as any restaurant that sells a burger.

However, by focusing on a local term, even one like “Burgers in Hammersmith”, you’ll have fewer competitors, thereby allowing you to rank higher. It is also worth noting that people usually do searches similar to “Burgers near me” rather than “Burgers + locality”.

Since Google prefers to locate businesses via geolocation as well as by terms, having a smaller, specific location on your business, you will rank higher for customers who search for this near your chosen location. This doesn’t mean you can write 5 different areas in 5 different countries – Google will pick up on that! – however, it’s all right to use several locations close to each other, like “Hammersmith, Fulham, and Baron’s Court”.

16. SEO: Be Hyperspecific

Hyperspecific: be as specific as possible. Online rankings can be very competitive, especially if you are competing with sellers across the globe.

By being as specific as possible with your keywords and descriptions, you will be able to attract the most-likely-to-buy customers as well as rank higher due to fewer competitors using that specific terminology.

Let’s say you are selling socks. If that was your only keyword, you could be ranked 10,000th for “socks”. Make it more specific by making it “white socks” – now you may be the 1,000th result. You could rank 100th for “white cotton socks” and, and possibly 5th for “white cotton socks with polka dot design”. You get the idea.

It’s important, though, to avoid going overboard. You’ll be missing out on customers who aren’t writing “ivory white cotton socks with red polka dot design for size 7-8”. Keep it relevant, and add details to the on-page information and product description – customers may not search these directly but will need it to eventually when they go to purchase.

17. Download The Webapp To Make It Easier To Use

When you log into the Editor on mobile, you’ll be able to download the Editor app directly to your phone, allowing you to edit your page wherever, and whenever, you are.

18. Google Ads Voucher

Our VIP customers on our Plus and Reputation plan are able to take advantage of UENI’s partnership with Google. We can offer you discounts on Google’s Premium Adwords marketing service via the Hub. You will get nearly double the credit of your initial purchase in credit, and you can use this to get your page to the top of searches relevant to your business.
