How to start attracting more qualified customers using SEO
It’s a fact: the more people visit your website, the more leads you’ll get. And the higher up the search engine rankings you are, the more more qualified those visitors are.
That’s great but how do you get high rankings?
Rankings are determined by the search engines who use very complicated sets of rules to decide where you rank for a particular phrase. These rules are called algorithms and are kept very secret and updated regularly.
How do you know what to do?
The basic purpose of a search engine is to return the most relevant results to match the search phrase entered. This is how they keep their customers; if they never find what users are looking for, then they’ll go elsewhere. And without users they’d lose their advertising revenue (e.g. Google AdWords) so you can see why they’re so keen to rank good quality, relevant sites.
The key to getting good rankings is a continued upload of good quality, regular and relevant content. Of course there’s a bit more to it than that in terms of how you indicate to the search engine what your content is about, but that’s the crux of it.
Is it suitable for you?
There isn’t a business trading that doesn’t want more customers, so if you’ve got a website and you’re ready to open up a whole new revenue stream SEO is for you.
What’s covered in the monthly fee?
I take over the management of your website and make all the necessary tweaks to make it as search engine friendly as possible and I add regular and relevant content (articles) to your site each week. These articles are written by my professional copywriters – they have many and varying interests and skills so can write with authority about any subject.
I also build links to your site – a major influence with rankings as Google sees a link as a vote for the quality of your site. However, not all links are created equal and you should never buy links from sites that consist mainly of links to other websites (sometimes known as link farms) as Google knows about these sites and will penalise you for it. All links I build are done so ethically, they’re of top quality and are never purchased.
I can also produce professional videos for you to be placed on YouTube and again optimised for your search terms and set up Twitter and Facebook accounts for you. All of these methods help build your relationship with your customers and bring traffic to your website. You may think that your business has no place on any of these social media sites, I’ve come across this resistance many times – you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the benefits it can bring to you.
Is there a set up fee?
In short, no.
