Why a website needs good SEO!?

Much of web traffic is driven by the biggest and most power full major commercial search engines, such as Bing – Goggle – and not forgetting Yahoo.. and although some social media and other types of traffic could and can generate some visits to your site, its the search engines that are the primary method of navigation for most internet users, this is so true whether your website provides content – products – information or simply anything else…

However it will take time, its very time consuming! if you focus on learning small amounts first this will help, then let us here at TLC help and do the rest!!

 

Keep on Blogging!

Blogging is one of those things that seems so time consuming but it is worth keeping up! If you are reading this then guess what, we have just proved that blogging really does work!

Statistics from Hubspot’s 2012 Inbound Marketing Report show that 57% of companies who have a blog reported acquiring a customer from their blog. That was 4 years ago, online presence is growing and competition is more fierce than ever, without a blog, can you really afford to lose any custom?

Take a look at 4 reasons why blogging is important:

It feeds into your SEO –  Search engines such as Google love fresh content, sometimes it is difficult to add new sections to your website so putting extra content into a blog gives your website that SEO boost without diluting your content for your customers.

Build a relationship with customers  – As well as social media, blogging allows you to connect with your visitors, this gives your customers another way of getting in touch with you and engaging with your work. This will not only establish your brand, but build trust.

Social Media Tree
Facebook is just the beginning

Build Your Brand – Continuing on from the previous point, blogging will allow your customers to see that you are not just sitting still, but moving forward, with a vision and purpose. This is a side the customers often of not see but will help gain creditability across the board.

Get People Talking – Encourage people to share your work, the more your loyal customer base appreciates and shares what you do, the more that loyal customer base will grow, and they will help more people see and hear about you, it’s free advertising, so make sure you encourage those to get the word out.
