Auditing your digital presence - a how to guide

Support provided by Business Gateway

What does this involve?

Consistency is key when it comes to your digital presence. The various profiles you set up for your business should clearly reflect and project your brand and its values. This will help customers to build an accurate picture of your offer and avoid confusing your brand with others. Consistency across digital platforms can also support search engine optimisation.

Read up on how to audit your digital presence in the DigitalBoost guide on the subject. A digital audit involves revisiting the profiles you’ve already put in place and updating these where necessary to bring them into line. But the guidance is just as useful if you are currently in the process of setting up social media business accounts for the first time.
