Having an effective and profitable online presence is more than just buying a domain name and putting up a web site. Your website is your online face to the world. Your company's branding, culture and content should be presented in an effective and consistent manner to achieve maximum return on investment (ROI). Designing your website so that it is properly optimized for search engines (SEO), easy to navigate and is consistent with todays design styles is essential.

Online shopping is the fastest growing form of selling products & services ever. If your small business is not selling your products online you can be sure that your competition is. Tidal Web can integrate an e-commerce online shopping system into your daily business that is both easy to manage and profitable. A good e-commerce shopping cart system should be search engine friendly, scalable and easy for the user to navigate.Tidal Web will choose a shopping cart based on what is best suited for each client.
Content Management Systems (CMS)
A CMS makes it easy for the average user to manage their website at any time without incurring the expenses of monthly content updates. You don't need to know HTML or be a computer expert to update your own content. Tidal Web has designed and developed it's own brand of content management system (CMS) for it's customers since 2003 with the introduction of "CONTeNT" version 1. We are proud to now be utilizing the "CONTeNT 3" CMS system. Unlike some hard to use and overly complicated management systems, CONTeNT 3 lets you focus on what you really need to update. You can update the text, links and images on your site by just clicking on the editable region indicator and using our familiar WYSIWYG editor. You can even manage the essential SEO information for each page to make sure your site is optimized for search engines.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Web Marketing
Search engine optimization or SEO is the process of improving the quantity or quality of traffic to your web site from search engines via "natural" or un-paid search results. This is the most cost effective and trusted way to drive customers to your website. Great organic placement is also the most difficult to achieve depending on how much competition your industry has. The good news is that in addition to organic listings, you can utilize the extremely effective method of purchasing PPC search engine advertisements. These programs allow you to purchase good placement around the organic listings even if you are not currently placing well. These PPC ads become twice as effective when viewers see your ad along with a good natural search engine placement. Visitors get the feeling that you are a leader in the industry. Tidal Web approaches SEO the same way we did in 1997. We help you with adding solid, keyword rich content to your site and establishing quality link partners. While there are definitely some things that can be done to optimize your web site code for good search engine placement, we do not use gimmicks, tricks and flooding techniques that will ultimately end up hurting your website's rankings.
