Optimize your site for search engines and customers
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a critical part of your overall web communication strategy, but at the core it is all about optimizing your customer acquisition – getting the right information to the right prospective customer at the right time that ultimately leads to a sale. Most importantly it’s about building sustainable, beneficial relationships for all parties involved.
Building relationships on a foundation of quality content
Keywords are important, but context is critical. A solid Search Engine Optimization strategy focuses on your customer needs and provides them with the keywords in the right contexts that help them make decisions. This means content must be meaningful, relating to the needs of the customer, and ultimately providing some answers to the reasons they began their search in the first place.
Your website will often be the first interaction a prospective client has with you. Your content must nurture the relationship to meet the needs of your prospective customer and all the various buyer personas at each stage of the purchase cycle.
Your content will establish awareness, inform, give confidence, maybe even inspire, and provide the fundamental details to your prospective customer that leads them into a sales pipeline and positions you for an opportunity to close the sale.
SEO is a marathon, not a sprint
Setting the right pace with Search Engine Optimization practices will help you engage your prospective customers while also enabling engagement with your current customer base throughout the lifetime of the relationship.
Quality, meaningful content will be invaluable to your business as it evolves. A consistent flow of content over time with an appropriate mix of online advertising will lead to a stream of new customers and repeat customers as they discover the solutions you have that meet their needs.
Search Engine Optimization isn’t something that is done once for the sake of increasing a search engine ranking and left alone. It’s an ongoing process with the primary objective of delivering the right information, to the right customer, at the right time on a path towards a sale.
Measuring success and adapting to change
Your business must adapt to the changing needs of your customers and your Search Engine Optimization processes will need to adapt as well. To know how to adapt, where to adapt, and when to adapt will require ongoing analysis to build on your successes.
