This is why we have outlined 5 ways to make SEO work for you and your business…
Ranking for the Right Keywords
Keywords control the way we search the internet and interact with search engines. Utilising keywords successfully creates a high chance of good search engine optimisation (SEO), which is imperative to the success of your business. By using the right keywords in your web pages and content rich articles, you are maximizing the likelihood of your web page dominating search engine results pages. In turn, this allows you access to a vast amount of new traffic and potential customers.
Have a Well Designed Website
Search engines use a complex algorithm (a software program that crawls the internet and indexes results into their search engine) that determines the ranking of the websites in the index results. A site that implements factors to influence the algorithm is; easy to navigate around, simply and consistently designed, linked internally, and contains basic HTML mark-ups. It also contains only quality content with appropriately labelled images and correct spelling.
Have a Good Offer
Traffic to your website will only convert into business if you are offering people something that they actually want. Websites that offer anything irrelevant or unsubstantial will be immediately disregarded. The offer must be unique and competitive by proffering incentives, promotions and something that is either unobtainable anywhere else or of a higher caliber. This is where a superiorly designed website is necessary; as is original, interesting, valid and current web content.
Lead-Generation is Easier than E-Commerce
Lead generation has been proven as a successful form of marketing that refers to the obtainment of information of prospective consumers. This is usually done through direct mail, prize sites, email, telephone and search engines, and is collected through consumer interest or inquiry.
Lead generation is successful, as people don’t necessarily want to make impulse or instant purchases. Instead, by planting ‘an idea’ about a purchase you are encouraging the luxury of time and choice whilst simultaneously building a platform of valuable consumer relationships.
Use Email Marketing
Email marketing is an effective form of direct marketing that creates the possibility of developing new and high levels of traffic to your website. This process acts as a personal channel to build and enhance your relationships with your consumers and secures new and repeat business. Traffic will come from your email list (those registered to receive updates, offers, new content etc), and to ensure your system steadily increases, encourage new traffic to subscribe/join and for them to also share it with their contact list in the hope that they will also subscribe/join. (As an example, a great way to do this is to offer those already subscribed with an incentive if they refer a friend.)
So good luck as you implement these 5 ways to make SEO work into your business strategy, as you work towards a higher level of market success.
