There will always be 3 parts to this strategy.
a) Designing or redesigning the information structure of your website, including making it accessible to mobile devices.
b) Setting out a plan for developing sufficient backlinks to your site(s) to outrank competitors, in a manner that appears natural to the search engines.
c) Social Media Management Strategy: establishing a good network of social media sites and a regular routine for posting updates about your business in a professional and engaging manner that encourages people to look at your main website and spread the word. YouTube, Skype, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and the multitudes of other social channels are the 21st-century equivalent of good old fashioned word-of-mouth.
