Being a small scale business, defining you SEO goals could be difficult because you have a lot of competitors, low budget and a small manpower that can work day in and day out.
In this scenario, here are some strategies that can help a small business to build a strong SEO campaign:
Know your business
Before you go to your SEO consultant, be sure of how you want to portray to yourself to your clientele. What are your strengths, what phrase or in respect to SEO, what keyword defines you. If you are not clear with what keywords is appropriate, then find out before you launch your campaign.
Identify your competitors
Any word on searched on Google could have million results including various types of websites like how-to, blogs, forums, suppliers, experts, other companies, substitutes etc. All these are competition, but filter those who provide similar products or services. They are your real competitors.
Keyword research is first step in SEO. You select a few keywords to find out the existing level of competition for a particular word. This compound analysis of keywords with their results on a search engine, gives you the framework for your campaign.
Second step in SEO campaign is choosing the most relevant keyword. The more generic keyword the keyword, more difficult it is to optimize. Therefore, as a small business you have to be careful, so as to not choose a very generic keyword, at the same time be aware not to work on very specific keywords either.
Perhaps the best strategy for a small business is to geo-target your keywords. Local customers are the most susceptible to convert to buyers. Nation-wide or worldwide campaigns are more time consuming and require more manpower to show results. They also have more competition.
Return on investment
You need to understand that SEO is a long term work. Thus the return on investment shows only after considerable time. There are no instant outcomes. Also this is on trial basis. There is no sure shot way to optimize your website, but several methods inclusively result in a successful campaign.
Growing your campaign
Once you have set your SEO campaign in motion, seen results in a time frame of six months or a year. It is time to grow your existing campaign. But this doesn’t mean you take new keywords and start optimizing them from scratch. It means add to your existing campaign by enhancing your keywords.
