Is Your Website Traffic Something to Celebrate?

How to Boost Site Traffic with SEO Content ASAP!

It’s summer and time to have fun. But if your Website is not seeing new traffic that leads to sales, you probably don’t feel like celebrating.

Don’t worry. There is something you can do right away to increase online awareness…

Are you using SEO (search engine optimization) content marketing to bring in new customers and provide value?

If not, you are missing out on a cost-effective tool that can give you a competitive edge.

Specifically, according to stats at “The InBoundWriter Blog,”

· “Marketers, on average, spend over a quarter of their marketing budget on content marketing. (B2B Marketing Insider)

· 62% of companies today outsource their content marketing — that’s up 7% from last year! (Mashable)

· Because 61% of consumers say they feel better about a company that delivers custom content, they are also more likely to buy from that company. (Custom Content Council)”

So how do you start using SEO content marketing?

Start writing unique articles, blogs, social-media posts, ePamphlets, tip sheets, case studies, and more specifically for your customers.

What do you your customer want?

Find out! Then, provide them with the valuable information they are looking for and will want to tell their friends about.

And for better results, add SEO keywords to your copy. This way, when potential customers search for specific keywords related to your products and services online, your business will appear in the listings. And if you are not a trained, SEO copywriter, find a professional to help you. You’ll see better results and save time and money in the long run.

Today, content marketing is a huge part of business success. By giving potential customers, and the search engines, valuable data, you can save time and money while increasing online buzz and sales.
