How to add Security to Your Concrete5 & Wordpress Website

These days, adding security to your website is more important than ever.  Website hackers are in full force, trying to find security holes in your website, doing brute force attacks to login to your site or doing malicious activity like doing DDOS attacks to make your website inaccessible.  You need a three fold strategy to keep your website secure. Website security is not just for big enterprise websites.  Small to medium sized websites also need security to keep the bad guys out.  If you've even had to deal with a badly hacked website it can waste hours if not days of your time which reduce productivity and sales.  A small investment up front can save you a LOT of time later.

15% of Millennials Say they Never Use the Internet to Find Local Businesses (12% change in just 1 Year)!

In 2019, the percentage of millennials who said they never used the internet to find local businesses rose to an astonishing 15% (up from just 3% the year before).  This is a remarkable change in usage.  And this survey was done year-over-year with the same survey group.  Why the wild change in usage?  It isn't quite clear yet.  One possible answer is semantics.  It might be how millennials perceive the phrase “use the internet to find local businesses.”  It might be that they look at that phrase to meaning only using the web browser rather than other apps, voice controlled smart devices and other similar internet enabled devices.  It might also mean that alternatives to directory type listings are being used, like social media recommendations.  Also, make sure you are doing what you need to locally to compete with apps like Amazon.  To Millennials Amazon is just as “local” with two-day shipping and may be perceived as more convenient then driving to a local business.  So, most businesses that are product based need to consider online retailers as their competition.   Either way, what a local business owner needs to realize is that young people’s usage is transforming and their perceptions of the best places to get local business information is evolving. 

What should a local business do?

  • Make sure that your Google My Business listing is on the top of the list and optimized properly.  This will help drive traffic from map listings.
  • Get more active on social media to get in front of young people and interact with them.  Don’t necessarily try to sell them but build community and gain a voice.  Also, do hash tag type of campaigns, contests and special offers to build interaction.
  • Go where the young people are going.  YouTube, Yelp and other outlets can be used to drive traffic back to you website and/or store.
