You have a beautiful car that is going to get you from point A to point B in style and fast. Just like having a well built website that is built for conversion. This car has all the bells and whistles that would make anyone want to have it, but now it needs the fuel to move you from point A to point B.
A website can be built to be extremely user friendly and convert very well. However, with out the fuel there will be no conversions. Fueling this website can and will provide great results, but where do you get the fuel from on the internet?
Internet marketing provides the fuel needed to move a website to the top of the search engines and create traffic in many different ways. It all comes together to move web surfers into your website and get them to convert. Many aspects of marketing can drive people to your website. There are three main categories that deserve the most attention.
1. Search engine optimization is the term used to bring your website to the top of the search engines and receive all the traffic from a certain keyword phrase. The keyword is highly targeted so when people click on your listing they find exactly what they were looking for. When this happens and you answer the website visitors’ questions quickly they will convert.
2. Social media marketing is the act of conversation on the internet in real time. A person may put their question out there and it is up to your business to answer that question and provide a resource or link to your website as fast as possible. The link will allow the person asking the question to explore you further. Being that now you have helped them and answered their question they will convert.
3. Content marketing provides instant answers for those very same questions in social media. The difference is that a person will type their question into a search engine instead of a social media platform. When the person searches their question, an article that you have written on your website will come up first in the search results. Content marketing is important because it provides answers for these off topic questions that people search for on a daily basis. It also provides free traffic to your website that otherwise would have gone to a competitor.
Fuel that pretty car and let it take you on a ride in style. Just remember without the fuel it will just be sitting in your garage looking pretty, but no one will be seeing it!
