I see it many times, things get slow for a certain business and they quickly blame their search marketing campaign or SEO. How about you look at a few different things that could be triggering your lack of revenues?
Just because you think your products are the cat’s bag doesn’t mean everyone else does too. You have to realize that search engine optimization is the process of creating traffic and visibility. Once the visitor arrives it is up to your business and your brand to really take care of the rest.
In today’s business world a website needs to be running like a well-oiled machine especially if you have an e-commerce website. A visitor needs to have the euphoric feeling when they arrive at your site, that feeling that makes them want to navigate through pages and buy products from you. Make sure your website is updated regularly in order to keep things fresh and up to date.
Lack Of Brand
Does your business lack any branding ability? Or do you have a branding message that is the wrong one for your audience. Branding is a strong motivating factor as to why people do what they do on any website. Whether it is just hanging out on your website and reading through all your blog posts, submitting information through a lead form or just going to straight to your products page and making a purchase.
Lack Of Conversion Aspects
Conversion aspects on a website are also a large component to slow down any sort of website conversions, actions or sales. You have to have things in place to correctly funnel website traffic down to its ultimate goal. Never assume that people are going to understand what they need to do when they arrive to your website. You have to lay it out for them. All the search engine optimization in the world will not help you if this is not correctly put in place.
Don’t be quick to blame your search engine optimization for lack of business. Start by taking a good hard look at your website and business model first.
