Benefits to Business of Internet Marketing and SEO
Virtually everyone has access to the Internet these days. If you own a business, it now goes without saying that your desired client base is online, and online searches for products and services are now the rule rather than the exception. What’s more, most people don’t bother scrolling past the first page of search results. This means that for maximum online visibility and the best chance of increased sales, you need to be among the “top 10” for a given search by choosing keywords and key phrases that are specific enough to your business and physical location (if you have a brick-and-mortar shop) to put you at the top of search results for your category of business.
Breaking into the top 10 of search results happens through a form of Internet marketing known as search engine optimisation, or SEO. Unlike pay-per-click and other, more traditional forms of advertising, SEO offers returns over the long term on a one-time investment. The name of the SEO game is making your website work for you by publishing high-quality online content which effectively uses keywords and key phrases to draw traffic to your website.
You may be wondering exactly how one makes all of this happen. While there are several different ways to go about it, one of the best places to start is by adding a blog to your website. A company blog can also be a very effective way to add a more human touch to your online presence. This can be as simple as using your Twitter account to send out short one-liners accompanied by a link to a noteworthy and relevant piece of online news, or it can be a full-fledged blog on your company website that keeps your audience up-to-date on what you and your staff are doing to continually improve your service (or tailor it to changing consumer needs and preferences). Not much of a writer?
Don’t have the time? Not to worry: a reputable Internet marketing company can do the legwork for this and other aspects of your online marketing campaign so that you can focus your time and energy on the core business. To maintain your blog’s reach, encourage visitors to your website to sign up to receive updates via email every time your blog is updated.
