Search Engine Marketing
Search Engine Marketing(SEM) and Search Engine Optimization(SEO) is the final of 3 Way to Improve Your Business During COVID-19. SEM and SEO are heavily related to each other. SEM is the management of SEO, which is why they can be used synonymously.
SEO is a very technical skill that typically involves creating quality keyword research, updating all pages with SEO friendly page title & descriptions, developing new content regularly, and creating backlinks to your site. Most business owners would have a hard time managing this even if they had time.
To simplify why it is important during this time because if you can increase your Google & Bing rankings across the board you will see organic growth in your business. Here is the skinny on search engines:
- 91.5% percent of people who search for a product or service click on the first page. Google has 10 pages on page 1 if you are not in the top 10 in your industry locally, regional, or nationwide depending on your product or service, then you reduce click on the opportunity to only 8.5%.
- Even more significantly, 75% of people click on a top 3 result! That leaves with just 25% if you are not top 3. Getting to the top 3 for targeted keywords is extremely important for business growth.
- 96% of people that click on your listing will not purchase on the first visit. 49% of people will browse your site 2-4 times before making a purchasing decision. These statistics show that it is important to keep creating new content that engages users so that they become purchasers.
