Have you seen the movie “Field of Dreams” with Kevin Costner where he built a baseball pitch when he was told “build it and they will come”?
Sadly, in the online world, this is so far from the truth. Yet businesses build websites and expect magically to appear on the first page of Google.
This just does not happen today!
More than 10 years ago now, when we started our Digital Marketing Agency, a local business with a bit of focus could get themselves on the first page of Google and some even managed to get to one of the top 3 spots.
Most customers want 3 quotes for services or products, so getting into one of those spots is gold. The local map pack is now where it’s at and getting your business listed in the map pack could be the one thing that makes or breaks your business.
Today, without an SEO company working for your business, you will simply not be found on Google on the first page.
If you are not found on Google, how will customers know about you?
The competition is fierce these days for page one rankings and in particular those top 3 spots. There are a lot of SEO and Online Agencies out there now. One of the reasons why we have been so successful over the years and helped hundreds of clients is that we spend many hours every week keeping up with the strategies we need to implement to have our clients in the top listings.
As a business owner you simply don’t have the time to learn those strategies and then take the time to implement them. Your time is far better spent providing an excellent product or service to your customers.
All the previous posts in this series were about improving the conversions from your website.
However, if no-one is finding the site then it won’t help you grow your business.
As much as I would love to give you a couple tips to get your website ranked on the first page, I would need to create a whole course to teach you and frankly, that would be a giant waste of your time. As the business owner, you need to be running your business, not learning ranking strategies.
We have been successfully assisting local businesses since 2009 to;
- Get their websites working correctly and to convert leads into customers
- Get their websites ranked at the top of Google so they can be found
- Grow their income and profits
Call us on 1300 885 487 for a full review of your website, your rankings and your sales strategies. We have assisted local businesses to grow their turnover over by over 300%. What would your business look like if it grew by 300%?
