visionMarketing Provisions was formed by Patrick Widner, originally as Beach Web Development, Inc.. He has worked with small businesses, large corporations and several marketing advertising agencies around the world. With his collaboration they were able to develop websites and commercial printing campaigns under their customers brand while he remained a silent partner. Their clients never know that he was involved.

Through Beach Web Development and now through Marketing Provisions, Patrick has designed and hosted many successful web sites and provided marketing materials for a variety of businesses mainly in the highly competitive Myrtle Beach area.

Does a new website need Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

When we build a new website design for you, it will have basic Search Engine Optimization (SEO) built right into the first lines of code. We know what the search engines are looking for and we supply it. Truthfully, it doesn’t matter how great your website looks if it can’t be found. That’s where SEO comes in.

What exactly is Search Engine Optimization? SEO is optimizing your website for the search engines, such as Google, Bing and Yahoo, and for the users that are visiting your website. It’s rumored that Google alone has over 200 ranking factors and each website is graded accordingly. What are they? No one knows the complete list, it’s a closely guarded secret. But with our experience, Marketing Provisions can check off that list and get your website ranked.

When we perform a website audit for an existing website, we first look at the coding to make sure that it’s in the correct format. Do you have header titles? Are your links all working? Do you have meta descriptions and meta tags? Again, with over 200 points to go over this can be one of the most important jobs of an SEO company.

From there we move to the content. Well written and authoritative content is what keeps a user’s attention and will have them exploring the other pages of your website. Images and videos within your content are also a high ranking factor. Properly SEO’d content is what will convince your website visitor to buy your product or use your service.


The next step in an SEO audit are the links. A website needs links from both local and national directories as well as other high ranking websites. But be careful! If you are a shoe retailer you don’t want links from a website that is all about farm animals. There are two distinct kinds of link building – white hat and black hat. Black hat may get your website to the top of the list really fast, but just as fast the search engines will penalize you and you will never rank with those bad links attached (and they are hard to get rid of). White hat SEO is a slower way of link building, but it’s the best way if you want your website to rank for the long term.

It’s estimated that Google receives over 3.8 million searches per minute or over 5.5 billion searches every day.

That’s a lot of competition, even if you only sell locally. If your website isn’t on the first page of a search engine, then you’ve lost business.
