SEO: Looks Don’t Matter

January 6, 2010 by

Your website is pretty. It has flash and video and fancy stuff. And you’re done, right?

Wrong. In the online marketing world, the prettiest doesn’t end up on top… smarts is where it’s at. And smart online marketing starts with search engine optimization (SEO). You could tell everyone you know – every customer, every colleague, every friend, every neighbor – to visit your website (often) and you wouldn’t even scratch the surface of a website’s potential. There are people out there – more people than you can imagine – that are interested in what you are selling (or saying) and searching. “Pretty” might get noticed on the street, but “pretty” doesn’t (necessarily) get found online.

Why Search Engine Optimization? SEO’s ultimate goal is to get found… hopefully by that audience of pre-qualified prospects. However, the residual benefits of employing a well-developed SEO strategy include more opportunities for lead conversion and an alternative – and powerful – avenue for increased sales (read: profits). When combined with a smart marketing automation solution, your website’s potential to generate leads – and convert those leads to sales – grows exponentially.

Search engine optimization strategies involve developing each page of your site around targeted and relevant keywords or search terms. Inbound links, or links from other sites to yours, also helps improve your search engine performance. Helping search engines – such as Google – to understand, index, and interpret your website puts you in front of the right people time and time again.

A marketing program centered on the SEO basics requires little to no monetary investment… just some time and some smarts. Mamma always told me that it’s what’s inside that counts…
