SEO For Small Businesses

SEO For Small Businesses

Author: SEO Sapien

It seems like times are always tough for small businesses, but no time is worse than during a recession. During a recession, many businesses try to cut back on as much as possible, but when does cutting back start to hurt the company? One of the places this question is most often applied is to the question of SEO. Should a small business pay for SEO when money is tight?



Unfortunately, many small businesses axe their advertising budget first. While this can be a good place to save a little bit of money, if businesses completely cut their advertising, they will not be able to attract new clients. Without new clients, there's little they can do to make more money. While word of mouth may help somewhat, it's not as effective as a marketing blitz.



While web marketing is cheaper than doing offline marketing, there are still costs involved. However, you may get a much higher return on your investment since you're able to more deeply analyze how well your marketing is doing. Since websites allow users to track where their traffic comes from, it's easier to identify and cut any online marketing that is not working. To this end, small businesses should not immediately cut their SEO budget when times get tight.



Some small businesses may not have even invested in SEO yet, and these businesses may be asking why they should spend the money. However, those small business owners may not recognize just how great a return they can get on their SEO. A huge return on investment is everything in a recession, and doing SEO is ranked as one of the top ROI solutions.



By selecting specific keywords and phrases, you're very specifically targeting your audience. While ads in magazines may get a lot of attention, you never really know if your target audience is viewing the ad or if it is being viewed by someone who will never purchase your product. SEO, however, makes certain your website is being viewed by those who are looking for what you offer. It brings in more than just quantity; it brings in quality visitors and provides them with information about your website right away.



When it comes to dealing with SEO, small businesses have a few choices. They can either handle the SEO themselves or they can hire a professional SEO company. The first is obviously the most budget-friendly; however, if you and your employees don't understand the basics of doing SEO, you may end up wasting your time. Fortunately, you can learn the basics of SEO fairly quickly.



Paying a company to do SEO, especially if the company is thorough and completely redesigns your website from the ground up to be fully optimized, may be out of your price range. Many small businesses simply can't afford this. However, having an expert in SEO look at your pages can be helpful. Outsourcing only part of the SEO process can be helpful. For example, you may want to hire a professional SEO writer to create content for your website after you determine the keywords yourself.

  5. How did I get on first page of Google within 3 months? Easy….I hired someone lol. Not just anyone, I did my research on this project first. I ASK you to first search for DMLS on Google and you will see that not only am I first page of Google but also 2 pages from my site. Now that you have already taken the time at searching this term at least do me the favor of clicking on my site and it out :).

    Who did I hire you ask? And how much did it cost? What did I have to do? How did they do it?

    I am no genius to this, I am just going to tell you WHAT I DID…I do not work for this guy or get any commissions from him getting more sales if you do end up using him, however I know that this does work because it WORKED FOR ME!

    I hired Reece George he is a normal person just like you and I who is trying to make a living but does great work, hence the reason you see this because I am happy with his service. His website is www.reecegeorge.com and www.askreece.com he also has an ebay store (which is where I found him and purchased his program) http://stores.ebay.com/reecegeorge .

    It cost me like $300.00 and he did a series of hard text and back links (to over 300 sites).

    I gave him the 3 best keywords that describes my business, of course my website and I paid the dude! My keywords were; DMLS, Direct Metal Laser Sintering and Prototype. Now prototype was a hard one and there are a lot of people offering that service and I was like at page 10, now I am like page 3 or 4. DMLS I am page 1. Direct Metal Laser Sintering I am page 1. TEST IT, Search those Keywords, Look at where I am ranked. I am going to be honest, I also have a paid Google ad, which I have max spending at $10.00 a day….I will always be number 1 for those keywords however organically I am still on the first page whereas I was past page 10 prior to Reece hooking me up!

    What Reece George did was quite simple, he wrote articles pertaining to my industry using the keywords. I currently have 8 backlinks but now I have well over 500 (including some backlinks I did myself). I will point out they use anchor texts that link to your site on high quality page ranking sites! Basically he comes up with his own article in which point you double check and posts blogs, comments and info all over sites he has gathered over his time. What I did is commented on each of his posts that he had made with something about my business as well adding another link to my site (hopefully this helps!). So how he REALLY did it is beyond me all I know is that it WORKS J

    I will also point out the fact that Reece is so generous he even lets you pay $100.00 a month over 3 months and his services are GUARANTEED, if you are not satisfied is he will refund your money back! Check him out and if you have any questions just ask me or better yet ask him lol Here is my info. Tim Ruffner – GPI Prototype offering DMLS – Direct Metal Laser Sintering email is timr@gpiprototype.com and website is http://gpiprototype.com and my blog is http://directmetallasersintering.blogspot.com . GOOD LUCK!
