Why Your Business Needs Search Engine Optimization
Want to rank high in search engines? Of course, you do. Here’s why every business – large or small — needs search engine optimization (SEO).
With SEO, Your Business Will Be More Visible Online
With proper SEO in place, there’s a better chance your business is going to rank higher in search engines. In simple language, this means you’re going to show up on the first page of Google. And if you’re on the first page of Google, more customers are likely to contact you.
Doubting us? Just think about how often you venture past the first page on Google when you’re searching for a product or service. If you’re like most, you check out the top three results, and that’s it.
“If you don’t use SEO, your business will be sitting at the bottom of the barrel, so to speak,” says Mike Haaima, creative director here at Webworks.
Your Business is Losing Money if You’re Not Using SEO
So, if you’re not ranking high in Google, what’s that mean? Well, your business is losing money. Yup, you read that right – it’s losing money. You don’t want that, do you?
Every day, there are billions of people searching online for products and services – including the products and/or services your company offers. If you’re not using SEO, you’re not standing out from the competition in the way you could be.
When you show up at the top of Google, your business instantly looks more credible to potential customers. As a result, your website will get more clicks. What does more clicks mean? More money.
You’ll Be Able to Learn More About Your Customers
Knowledge, as they say, is power. And the more you know about your customers, the better.
Luckily, SEO generates valuable traffic, and Google Analytics tracks this traffic. You’ll be able to take this data – how your customers search, how they browse the net, where they live, when they’re online, and much more – and use it to your advantage.
Take what you learn, and use it to make better decisions when it comes to the strategies you implement both on and offline.
Businesses that have an SEO-optimized website bring in more clients; it’s really that simple.
