Is your business growth largely reliant on your website? Whether you sell products, services, investment opportunities or advice, having an online presence and a website is now a must rather than a nice-to-have. Customers begin their research online, and as such, you should be visible within their search results.
However, simply having a website isn’t enough to draw in new customers or views, and many businesses are failing to expand, grow or compete online due to a lack of technical knowledge or investment in website rank building techniques.
Search engine optimisation, or SEO for short, is the process of improving your website to increase its visibility and rank for search terms that are relevant to your business. SEO works for all industries, all niches, all markets, and is an integral part of competing online, as explained in this informative page from AGR Technology: https://agrtech.com.au/seo-vic-melbourne/
Here are 4 ways website SEO can help businesses in Victoria Australia gain new customers and fend off competitors, from the experts at AGR Technology, a leading digital supplier in Australia:
- Drive more/new traffic (potential customers, investors, partners) to your website
There’s no doubt about it – if your website appears on the first page of Google, Bing, or other search engines when a user has typed in something relevant to your business, you’re far more likely to get website visits, resulting in sales, leads and enquiries.
By understanding what people are currently typing in to reach your website and using clever tools to see what search terms are regularly used/clicked within your market, you can determine what SEO improvements need to take place on your website. A comprehensive research and implementation SEO project will require you to rewrite or expand the information you provide on your website, but when combined with things like link-building and code enhancements, the results can be invaluable.
- Compete with local, national, and international suppliers
SEO allows small businesses to compete with the big boys and vice versa. For example, if you’re a music shop in Melbourne that sells the same products as international competitors, you can use SEO techniques to ensure that your products are visible when users type ‘red fender guitar’ or ‘affordable drum kit’ into Google, Bing or other search engines. Without SEO, you may be appearing low, or not at all, and potential customers may be lost.
This principle applies to literally any search term and any market. By ensuring your website page is optimised correctly, search engines will consider you as a result, which in business terms can lead to sales or leads.
- Bring a new product or service to market
SEO is one of the best ways to bring a new product or service to market. Not only can local website tools help you understand what people are currently searching for to find your business, but they can also help you to expand this, and give you ideas on what information or content you should be writing about or uploading to your website in order to maximise your visibility and enter new markets.
Before you create a new website page to promote a product, service or offer, make sure you’ve done your SEO research and that you write/link based on this research.
- SEO removes a reliance on paid online advertising to promote your product, service or offer
Many businesses pour hundreds, if not thousands of dollars each month into online advertising, without ever focusing on their website SEO. This is considered a short-term tactic and often relies solely on cash injection. However, by investing in SEO you can still appear high and be visible within search engines without having to pay for the privilege. It’s a longer-term tactic but financially, it can make the difference.
SEO should be a core component of any website
It often gets put to one side, becoming another ‘digital’ thing that we should do but don’t. The fact is, by investing in SEO and making it a core component of your website, you can grow your business, become an online authority or leader in your field, and fend of competitors.
