There is an immense amount of informational flow in this crazy age of the internet. You can learn, find, reach out to anything.
Now, internet of things, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and virtual reality starting to pour in from the doorstep of the future. Future is here. We need to pick up the pace and we need to adapt, there is really no other way. All the collective information we gathered since the beginning of history is a few inches away from our fingertips. Sometimes it’s embarrassing what we choose to do with this superpower. We can set business goals, but we choose to watch cat videos. We can reach out to more clients, but we choose to delve deeper into Memes. We can analyze our website’s data, but we choose to get a “like rush” on Instagram. Luckily for you, there are people out there who can help with the former.
SEO ( Search Engine Optimization) improves website visibility on online search engines to increase the number of visitors to the website by obtaining high-ranking placements in the search results. Business with a website and online presence should hire an experienced SEO agency to improve its organic Google search result rank and increase their brand awareness on social media. I feel like I can hear you mumbling to yourself “Why do I need to hire an agency to do that?!?”
STOP BEING SHY ABOUT SEO
Small to medium size businesses have apocryphal information about the success SEO brings. Second-hand information from their circle, witnessing perfunctory application of SEO, and working with amateurs claiming to be SEO specialists have made them lose their trust towards SEO. Perceiving digital marketing as a vain struggle for your business might be the biggest mistake you can do in the 21st century. In this digital age, if you are not present online, you don’t exist. I feel like I can hear you protesting “You still didn’t tell me why do I need to hire an agency to do that. Forget it,
I WILL DO IT MYSELF”
Of course, you can learn SEO by yourself. By all means, go ahead and start the self-education process. It’s fairly easy to learn, but it’s hard to master. If you think you can handle SEO to its full extend whilst running an entire business, on the other hand, you’re being wrong. Frankly, it is a little bit insulting too to all the SEO specialists out there. Think about it, with the same logic, everyone can cook to a certain extent. Does it stop them to dine at restaurants? People choose to eat at restaurants because it’s practical, time-efficient, and delicious. I still can hear you and you’re saying “Ok ok, your analogy makes sense. I’m all ears.” Let me explain why you need to spend a big part of your marketing efforts on SEO and how can a specialist change the scope of the impact.
Using SEO in advertising your business is cheaper than other advertisement channels. Other forms of advertisement, e.g radio, television, and print media, are relatively expensive and they are not really an option for small businesses. Who needs the old media when the global community is within your reach. Basically whoever is using the internet can be in the perimeters of your reach. All you need is to be a little bit specific about your target audience, that’s where a specialist comes in. Through a specialist, someone can run a digital campaign at minimum costs via smart targeting. This way the number of customers will be increased not only locally but also globally. Small businesses may be well known by the local population around it, but their service may use of a larger audience. In order to maximize its profits and sales, it must target customers at large. With the help of SEO agency, your business can expand rapidly.
From your perspective, mountains close to you seems higher. Addiction to instant gratification renders us blind to the mountains far away. Your business should always focus on long-term goals. SEO specialists can lay out a detailed plan in front of you with an elaborate content marketing and SMO (Social Media Optimization). More people associate your brand with the service you provide when you provide clear and free information. This leads to building a good relationship between customers and the business in the long run. When you feed your channels with frequent content, you invite potential customers to contribute valuable feedback. You’ll get first-hand information about demands and problems, thus you’ll get ahead when you’re tackling with them. All this information trade is done through several mediums. An SEO agency with the right tools can optimize these mediums easily. Brand awareness goes in two directions, people being aware of the brand, and Brand being aware of the needs of people.
NEW vs. RETURNING CLIENTS
Through the help of SEO agency, you can tap into the underestimated target audience. You can discover a certain type of audience has a better turnout than others. This gives the edge for business on discovering growth potential in the market. You can also create a loyal client base, “Bannermen” in a sense. When people are happy with the experience they had on your website, they tend to accept your invitation for them to come back. Website created by an SEO agency gives the business an opportunity to collect valuable data about your customers. You should analyze the traffic on your website in order to keep an eye on your customers’ habits. Get a better sense of which customers better align with your services. Use this information to give customers incentive to go to shopping cart. An SEO specialist can juggle with analytics’ data of your website to introduce remarketing campaigns. Thus, customers nudged in the direction of buying goods and services regularly.
Your website can store information like how many people visited it, which time and from which device they visited, how much time they’ve spent on it, which pages they’ve visited, and even which language they are speaking. This vast amount of data can be frustrating. An SEO specialist with a keen eye for details can hold a lantern and guide you to dig hidden opportunities for your business.
