Increase Traffic....Build Brand Awareness....and they will come...
The best way to increase brand awareness is by increasing traffic to your website.
Most websites are just fancy digital brochures that never produce leads.
In today's online world, internet presence is paramount to marketing successfully.
Building traffic to your website will build your BRAND. Follow the steps below to improve your brand awareness 50% in 90 days.
Focus on Building Content
Killer content is the key to increasing traffic, why?
Because prospects search Google and Bing to find where to get answers to their questions and Google and Bing search for those keywords the prospect enters.
Understanding the keywords your customers are using will help you target your ideal customer.
Keywords - Organic vs. Pay per Click
Keywords are picked up one of two ways, either organically (unpaid) or pay per click (paid).
Organic keywords are sorted by the most recent new postings.
If you’re posting several times a week, this allows the search engines to discover newer content.
Pay Per Click
Pay per click says what it is right in the title. Someone clicks your ad and you pay for it. It is that simple.
Even with pay per click, you need to get the right keywords.
Clicks with no lead generation or conversion are useless.
Know Your Keywords
A skilled content writer will know the right words to use. If you have the right keywords, Google and Bing are more effective at pushing the title up to the first page.
Don't Have a Blog? Get one NOW....
A blog is simply a website you can change when you want, how you want and how often you want.
Google loves blogs because the crawlers see blog information as the most current, relevant information.
