By Doing What Works.
15 years ago all a business had to do was throw up some pretty website that supported their brand. Maybe offer a coupon. Not much interaction at this level. There remained a lot to learn about customer engagement.
Today's internet users expect to be able to do certain things. Yes, your website should still "wow" visitors but it also must provide easy access to your service or product, and facilitate customer management.
Doing a good business online means the effective use of social media coupled with the right advertising campaign along with tasks like list building, search engine optimization, reputation and expertise management, branding and so on. No one thing will do it all. It's a balance of several different techniques with one purpose in mind. Increasing business.

In business there are only two reasons for an internet presence: a.) to make money through a website; b.) to save money through streamlining transactions and administrative functions.

Having an online presence that allows customer engagement at this level requires a robust and secure internet host. I place all of my client's web sites and internet applications on a secured, virtual private server from my own IT data center located at Steadfast, in Chicago, Illinois.
