A business should put in consistent efforts and step into the right direction to possess a strong digital footprint. A business can rest assured about digital presence when he has these four pillars standing proudly to heighten the pedestal of digital footprint.
1. Full-fledged business website
The first wheel of the chariot called digital footprint is the most essential out of the lot. It is the pivot around which the online ecosystem of the business will revolve. Having a well-designed and visually-appealing website is essential for any business.
Responsiveness and value addition are essential elements of web development in the modern digital landscape, and one should focus on every aspect of web design and development, including visual imagery, styles, fonts, content copywriting, logo design and placement among other aspects.
Always remember that a website is an online representation of the business, make sure to utilize that opportunity to showcase your strength and core values.
3. Relevant Blog
Having an active blog to broadcast relevant information to interested prospective customers and targeted audiences can help in driving traffic to a business website. When the audience finds a voice and opinion, they start believing a business more than a mute product pitching website.

2. Active Social Media Presence
A standalone website without any engagement or web traffic is nothing but an establishment in the desert. To drive traffic to a website in the modern world of social media, it is essential for a business to invest in social media marketing and management.
Having active social media handles to interact with prospective and existing clients help a business to leverage the social benefit of digital channels for fulfilling business goals.
4. Documented digital footprint plan
Before actually planning to build a strong digital footprint, it is essential that a business invests some time and energy in devising and documenting a digital footprint plan. The plan acts as a broad guideline for digital activities of a business and serves as a sole and whole guiding light to ensure effective and desired results from a digital campaign. A documented plan includes the process and method of developing and measuring the key metrics which drive traffic and engagement to a business website.
