  3. 3. So, which is better?<br />
  4. 4. Which option is better?<br />We believe that both are necessary to operate an effective web marketing presence. <br />Depending on the clients, budget, knowledge, patience level, and marketing objectives, will determine which option is best to do first.<br />We believe that all good search campaigns start with a paid program to identify (CTR) and (CA) before attempting to optimize a site.<br />Source: elliance.com<br />
  5. 5. Understanding the advertiser<br />SEM<br />SEO<br />Predictability<br />Unlimited Term Usage<br />Quantify Results<br />Low Time commitment<br />Low Knowledge Level<br />Easy Cost Control / ROI / CPA<br />
  6. 6. Understanding Predictability<br />SEO (Unpredictable)<br />No finite timeline on top rankings (6-24 months)<br />No guarantee on top rankings (always fluctuating)<br />No way to specifically quantify traffic increase<br />Traffic generated may not produce calls / web actions<br />SEM (predictable)<br />Historical data used to create campaign<br />Quantifiable result tracking<br />Acquisition reporting tools included<br />
  7. 7. Understanding Term Usage<br />SEO (Minimum)<br />Proper SEO requires optimization for 5 or less major keywords.<br />Organic placement is limited to those keywords<br />SEM (Unlimited)<br />Thousands of keywords can be used to generate traffic<br />Maximum visibility<br />
  8. 8. Understanding Result tracking<br />SEO <br />Results can be distorted with other marketing efforts<br />Can take months or years to notice higher rankings and still may never get them in the top 2, ever.<br />SEM<br />1st page rankings can occur immediately upon launch<br />Specifically tracked with proxy pages<br />Call and click monitoring for traffic generated<br />
  9. 9. Understanding Time Commitment<br />SEO <br />Continuous monthly evaluations necessary<br />Constant changes to the site<br />Multi engine research to verify results<br />SEM<br />Self -optimizing<br />No changes to the main website<br />All major search engines covered with one program (RL vs. Self)<br />
  10. 10.

  11. 11. Understanding Cost Control…<br />SEO – (Heavy up-front costs)<br />Analysis - $100 to $250 per hour<br />Implementation - $60 to $90 per hour<br />Number of hours based on site size and initial structure<br />No way to specifically quantify traffic increase<br />Additional cost to monitor calls<br />SEM (Consistent controllable costs)<br />Free analysis of site needs and overall potential effectiveness<br />Minimal up-front costs<br />No developer to pay for SEO implementation<br />Quantifiable result tracking<br />Call monitoring included in campaign costs<br />Acquisition reporting tools included<br />Most cost effective methods of advertising compared to tradition media (Newspaper, direct mail, radio, tv)<br />
  12. 12. “SEM seems pretty expensive.”<br />
  13. 13. Common Objections<br />SEM seems pretty expensive<br />Compared to any other online advertising medium, SEM is the least expensive and the most consistent in cost across all mediums.<br />SEO can be very expensive unless the client is trained in SEO guidelines and has the technology and education to do it themselves.<br />
  14. 14. Cost benefit of SEO vs. SEM<br />Although the long term cost per click (CPC) of organic rankings are lower than (PPC / SEM), there is a substantial amount of time in market required and a hefty initial investment to gain organic rankings.<br />PPC/SEM remains consistent and mitigates initial barriers to entry.<br />Source: elliance.com<br />
  15. 15. “I can do it on my own.”<br />
  16. 16. How does the buyer search for an advertiser?<br />This graph shows that buyers have very little loyalty to any specific search engine. Although Google is the dominate search engine, they are far from keeping loyal surfers.<br />
  17. 17. “More people use the ‘free’ (organic) side than the ‘paid’ side.”<br />
  18. 18. Common Objections<br />More people use the Free (organic) side than the Paid side.<br />Although that statement is true, remember how often your site will actually show up in an organic result for the number of keyword terms you can use SEM for?<br />The top 2 organic listings get 60% of the traffic. <br />Challenge consistency of ranking<br />Must be in the top 5 to be effective<br />Minimal term use for optimization<br />SEO is not Geo Targeted, so local relevant results are generally not listed.<br />
