SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION

Get more visibility and qualified leads to boost your sales

SEO SERVICE

So you want to understand more about Search Engine Optimization and how it pertains to digital marketing, and how it fits into our “make you more money” mantra.  

Here’s the deal, in a nutshell.  Your website needs to be found in order for someone to call you or email you.  Then, and only then can you make the sale. If someone does not call you or reach out to you in some way, they’re here and you are there, and you have no chance.  You need something, anything, so that you can make your pitch, sell your product, peddle your service, whatever it is. That’s called a lead. Not all leads are great.  Some are warm, some are tepid, and some are white hot. They are very rarely ice cold, which is why they call it a cold call when you dial numbers of people who have no idea they are about the receive a call from you.  But anyone who reaches out to you first, well they present you with a real opportunity; think of it this way- if you were making cold calls, how many calls would you have to make to get to someone who says “you know what, this might be something we need.” 5 calls? 10? 30? 100? So- think of how much time that incoming call has saved.

Now, how do we get the phone to ring?

How do we get people to email your business? 

How can we make it so that you don’t need to make (a lot of) cold calls?

Your website needs to be found. Simple as that. Sounds easy. It isn’t, not usually. Unless you are the only person doing what you do, in the town that you do it in. That’s not true for a lot of people.  Unless you literally live in the middle of nowhere. And the problem then is that even if you are ranked, there’s no one to call you. That’s another problem. See the sidebar.

WHY YOU NEED SEO

When you have competition in your niche or space, and in the same geographic region, there will be other companies that also have websites. If someone searches for “hair salon” in the middle of Toledo, the resulting search engine results page (we call that a SERP for short) will present a series of possibilities to solve that searcher’s problems. Without getting too far into the weeds (plenty of time for that later) let’s just say that Google’s secret hidden “intelligence” has to look at all the possibilities and decide what it is going show you first.  So there are a number of factors that affect that order – dozens and dozens in fact. In the world of SEO we have a suite of tactics and techniques that can be used to make your site more attractive to Google than the others.

The Google Local “Population Trap”

In a town near where our office is, there is a guy who runs a cleaning company, and he’s been in business forever. He does ok. But his business doesn’t grow. He had a terrible website for a very long time. Then, he spent a ton of money doing a NEW website and it looked a lot better, but it barely had any effect.

We looked into the situation for him. It turns out, his ranking was great, top of the maps, top organic, and everything, but still no calls. Why? The reason was because his address, and therefore his listing was in a town with a population of 6,000 people. And on all four sides around him he has towns with populations of more than 30,000 people – but because he wasn’t aware of how Google works, and how local SEO and marketing works, not only did he not know how to change the situation, he didn’t even understand that he had a problem. But in those larger towns, he was not ranked anywhere near page one or the top of the maps. He was invisible. His fancy website had little to no effect.

We showed what he needed to do to get found by the 100,000 people who were nearly blocks away. Are you in a population trap? Are there thousands upon thousands (or millions) of people just down the street who have no idea you are there? If they did know you were there, how would that effect your business?
