Not So Obvious Benefits of SEO
One of the better things that you can do for your company is to market yourselves online properly. I know it sounds rehashed to always be talking about it, but there’s very good reasons why you should be looking online for your growth.
Benefit #1 – Cost
The barrier of entry to get involved with online marketing can vary greatly depending on your business model of course, but there is always a few niches that can be explored. Typically the due diligence while working with a new client exposes the terms that they would like to be visible for and more often than not their visitors are searching for something different all together. The differences can be as seemingly insignificant as adding a letter to a term or as radical as completely changing your course in marketing which can all impact the cost of your online campaign.
The point of the first benefit, however steep the cost may be ties the next few points together in a neat little bow.
Benefit #2 – ROI
The return on investment where online marketing and branding is concerned is second to none. When you’re bringing hundreds if not thousands of visitors to your site on a weekly and sometimes even daily basis you may end up experiencing something you were unprepared for – not being able to meet the demand suddenly imposed upon you and your business.
Benefit #3 – Qualified Audience
Quality and properly executed organic marketing campaigns bring something special to your business that print, radio and television advertising can’t claim – the audience that has found your website was actively looking for you. Old advertising and media methods are great if you’re just after pure saturation in the marketplace, but how much of your advertising dollars in those avenues are being lost due to being irrelevant to the viewer/listener/reader? Having an already qualified visitor ending up on your website is half way to having your desired conversion on your site whether it’s a sign up, a sale or a contact form filled out.
