New Zealand is pretty small when you put it on a global scale, but we all know that when it comes to marketing a business, we’re as big as it gets. Often, it can even seem impossible to make your name stand out amongst the competition.
That’s where SEO comes in.
SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) can build your business’s reputation and give your company that extra boost it needs to rise above the rest. Fortunately, there a number of SEO services and methods that can be tailored to your unique market, business model, and current reputation that will add search engine value and web authority to your site, no matter your particular budget.
SEO Service Options
For best results, SEO campaigns are typically broken down into a series of contract-based services that take place over an extended period of time. Much like an a la carte menu, these services can be chosen on an individual basis, or combined to suit your business’s particular needs and current web ranking and/or strategy.
SEO is not always just about increasing search engine visibility, however; a strong SEO platform also involves monitoring and modifying tactics based on changing search patterns, competition levels, and market trends.
Here is a list of just a few typical SEO Services that you can consider utilising to grow your business’s online presence.
- SEO Tool Training
- SEO Assessment
- SEO Consulting
- SEO Research
- Back-end SEO Audits
- Link Tree Development
- Content Enhancement
- SEO Tracking & Analysis
- SEO Reporting
We’ll be going over what each of these things are in our next blog post, so stay tuned! But now comes the hard part:
How to Decide
Odds are, you won’t need to take advantage of every single SEO tactic listed above to see incredible results from your SEO strategy, but understanding that different SEO tactics can be utilised and combined at various stages of your business development is critical to staying on track with your marketing and growth strategy.
Like any major company decision, choosing the right combination of SEO services for your business is simply a matter of evaluating your current reputation and future vision – there’s no one-size-fits-all programme or checklist to follow.
While any SEO company will tell you that they are the best at increasing your search engine ranking and web visibility, what’s more important than finding a company that can do the job is finding the one that will do it – with integrity, that is. You know, the kind of company that won’t upsell you more than you actually need or damage your ROI by making false promises..
Here at Just SEO, we tend to recommend organic SEO during the majority of our consultations simply because it is most suited and most affordable for small, service-based businesses. (If you want to read more about what Organic SEO is specifically, you can check out our article here.)
Here are a few things to consider when choosing the components of your new SEO campaign:
- Do I need to edge out the competition or rank before them on search engines?
- Do I need to drive more traffic to my site, or retain existing traffic?
- Do I know how to utilize Google Webmaster and Analytics tools to track customer details?
- Do I want long or short term results?
- Is my website capable and polished enough for increased web traffic?
- Is my content shareable, relevant, and unique?
- Has my site’s underlying structure been updated since its initial setup?
Answering these questions can help you to not only identify your primary website goals, but sort out your problem area priorities. From there, it’s only a matter of determining your budget and finding a local, affordable SEO company whom you have a solid, honest connection with.
