Google has recently said that they’re aware of over a trillion websites online. With that in mind things are definitely not what they used to be and everyone needs search engine optimization (SEO) to move to the front of the crowd. In the past, it was easy enough to have a nice looking site and get natural search traffic from it. These days the competition is fierce and the market is growing at an exponential rate in a time when most businesses are suffering. If you promote your site properly with managed SEO services and managed search marketing services your business will get qualified leads turning your site into an asset.
“For the holiday season-to-date, more than $23.82 billion has been spent online, marking a 12-percent increase versus the corresponding days last year. The most recent week (week ending Dec. 12) reached $5.31 billion in spending, an increase of 12 percent versus the corresponding week last year. ” via Comscore Dec 14, 2010
It all starts with changing your marketing strategy. Statistically for every dollar spent online six dollars are spent in-store. Most people do their research online and then buy products and services in person. Think of your site as a person that represents you and sells to your target market 24/7/365. If your site isn’t found to promote your service offering you’re most likely not going to be very successful. Think about how you find products and services? If you’re like most people you’re probably doing your research online and like the largest number of buyers online (baby boomers) you’re even buying the products straight on the web. Companies like Zappos a company that sells shoes have made over a billion from just e-commerce.
Most businesses are convinced that because they rank number one for their business name that’s enough to be successful online but what if you’re not a really well-known brand? What if nobody has ever heard of you before and is looking for a specific product or a new company to help them? How often do you do your product research from the phone book rather than the internet? Chances are if your site is not ranking on the search engines with the relevant information users are searching for then you’re not going to be too successful in business and especially online.
