In order to ensure our members are getting the most from the membership resources at their disposal, we’ve compiled an easy-to-follow 3 step guide to boosting traffic with the Made in Group logo.
1. Download the Logo
If you haven’t done so already, you should be sure to download the “Proud Member” of the Made in Yorkshire logo — which can be accessed on the “Resources” section of your online dashboard.
2. Pinpoint the Best Spot for Your Website
Once you’ve downloaded the logo, you should find a suitable spot to proudly promote your Made in Yorkshire membership on your company website. The best place to situate your logo is the most visible spot for users, such as the top banner, underneath your logo or wherever else stands out.
3. Link to Your Microsite
Here’s the important part: create a hyperlink from your main website to your Made in Yorkshire social media microsite. By having links which go both ways, this will improve your link building in the eyes of Google and benefit your SEO.
