In 1996 we first viewed the Internet and immediately knew that it would become the most valuable tool that business had ever seen and we knew that we wanted to be a part of it. The Internet was very slow, dial-ups were slow and, relatively speaking, so were computers. All of that has changed dramatically and the use of the Internet has become common place. If memory serves the volume of sales on the Internet was less than 3 billion in 1998. In 2004 there were an estimated $28 billion of business to business sales and $11 billion in sales from households in 2004.
The exponential growth of sales on the Internet came about because it allowed a business to really tell it's story and make that story available for the world to see at a very reasonable cost. In magazines with a circulation of 250,000 a rather minimum cost is over $1300 for a black and white SIXTH OF A PAGE advertisment. For that same $1300 a business can buy a 13 page website and the pages could be 4 or 5 times the length of a piece of paper.
In 1996 we firmly believed that this growth would take place so we sold a business, bought hot computers, hired tutors and established PremierSystems.Com. Since that time we have put over 40,000 pages on the web for several hundred business clients. Check some of our recent website design by clicking here.
In 1997 we knew that a site was of no value if it could not achieve positioning on the search engines so we began to study what then was known as site positioning but now is known as SEO, Search Engine Optimization. The requirements for sucessful positioning have become more and more stringent and the time to get listed has increased from 24 hours to up to 120 days. Sites must be properly written, pages must be properly named, keywords must be included in appropriate numbers and included in headers, alts, and meta tags... yes, meta tags are still important. PremierSystems.Com guides you through these requirements and every page is designed to garner favorable positioning from the search engine bots.
