Is your SEO Strategy Strong or Weak? And would you know the difference?

Posted by on Jul 18, 2013

Small and growing businesses share a major challenge: an unlimited amount of tasks and not enough hours/staff to complete them all.   Both must prioritize and ensure that the methods they choose to market their business are efficient and providing a positive Return on Investment (ROI). It is not always easy to calculate the return from search engine optimization (SEO) since it is a long-tail strategy, but utilizing google analytics and other software to determine site traffic is a great place to start. Hiring a consultant or marketing agent allows these businesses to analyze and improve their search engine optimization without taking time away from their day-to-day tasks. Emarketer.com recently produced an article comparing B2B and B2C SEO strategies, and what these businesses found as effective and difficult tasks. These charts will help you decide what is worth doing in-house and what would be important to out-source to a professional based on difficulty.   Of course these tactics will vary in effectiveness based on the industry, but this chart should act as a solid overview of how to compare your SEO strategies, difficulties, and future outlook. A Few Helpful Hints to Take Away from these Marketing Charts Updating Website Content Google loves fresh content, and so do your readers. Producing new...

Content Marketing: Strategic, Educational and Effective!  

Content Marketing: Strategic, Educational and Effective!

Posted by on Jun 5, 2013

Content is King While social platforms are queen, quality content is what powers these strong networks. Learning how to effectively utilize a company blog to educate your audience and move customers through the sales process is an affordable, long-tail marketing plan. The difficult part of implementing a content marketing initiative is deciding what to write about. You don’t have to chose one specific topic, like if you are a yard care company, you wouldn’t just write about the new fertilizers and lawn mowers you are using. These are topics that would be relevant to show you are using top-notch equipment and could be an effective post, but really you should be focusing on valuable tips. If you can show your company as a thought leader in the industry, not only do all of those posts you are writing help your site gain rank in search engines, but you have also shown why you are the right choice for lawn care. There are millions of topics to write about on your blog, though most importantly remember to keep a similar tone. The tone is your brand, it is your image and readers will expect that similar attitude for each new post. After deciding what to write about and how to...

The Power of Networking and Referrals  

The Power of Networking and Referrals

Posted by on Jun 1, 2013

You are only as good as your network.   They are the one’s who vouch for you, they are the one’s who represent you, and ultimately will refer business back to you. Now I keep mentioning the word YOU. But really it is never about you, it is about helping your network. Pay it forward and if you have built the right network, it should come right back. This approach is how I do business, and how I generally find new clients. I’m not saying you have to go out of your way for everyone you meet, but have a sense of pride in helping others. This will be noticed and the rewards will be reaped later in life. These words of advice can be used in and out of the office, at a family dinner or just running into an old friend at the grocery store. It is important to verbalize what you want out of a relationship, especially if it is a business relationship. Being up front about expectations and desires helps build trust between clients, friends and colleagues. Also, if you don’t mention what you want, than how will you ever get it? No, it’s not being selfish, it’s being honest. It’s not wasting someone else’s...
