SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)
SEO is where your business ranks on search engines for specific search queries.
There are a few things to consider when looking at SEO, what keywords do you want to be found for, how competitive are these keywords, and does anyone actually search them. What you think is a good keyword, may not be to your potential audience.
A good SEO campaign takes time to establish, at least 6 months to a year. But in essence, SEO is very cheap, and done right will last for years. It’s always worth speaking with an expert about how to best establish your SEO.
Many businesses have grown their client base entirely through social media. It may appear as though engaging with consumers online is a waste of time, yet maintaining an engaged following is critical.
