Many companies believe that having a quality website, blog, and social media campaign will lead to automatic visits to their site. This, however, is only true if their idea of quality also includes a strategic approach to search engine marketing.
Searching the internet is the most dominant online activity. There are no greater influencers on purchasing decisions and brand awareness than Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
- Search engines reach the majority of internet users
- Users implicitly trust results that show up on the first page of search results
- Product research starts with searches
In order to influence prospective buyers, a business must effectively utilize these tools. So, what’s the best way to engage customers and qualified prospects on the web? It all comes down to providing strategic content.
A recent study found that the following content characteristics were the most valued by consumers:
Ease of access, understanding, and readability
Originality of thinking and ideas
The least appealing content characteristics were cited as:
Being blatantly promotional and self-serving
Being non-substantive and uninformed
Effective, relevant, and fresh content is key to engaging current customers and attracting qualified prospects. The next step in applying the right content marketing strategy is integrating search engine optimization to maximize readership and increase your web success.
