Implementing effective seo helps your business grow

  1. 1. Implementing Effective SEO Helps Your Business Grow &Save Money Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the key to success forany business that is active on the web. It not only helps find relevant keywords when searchesare conducted via search engines, but also helps save a big deal of money. As experts put it“SEO is the best customer acquisition strategy in the online world”.Jason Mark Anderman, President and Co-Founder of the start-up WhichDraft, the site thatlets freelancers automatically create sophisticated contracts online and offers lawyers documentassembly in the cloud, saved good money this year by learning search engine optimization.“I engaged an SEO expert to come up with a strategy for me and recommend SEO software forkeyword research, then executed that strategy myself. I estimate that we saved at least $15,000,which we otherwise would have spent on this,” says Jason.Explaining further, Jason says, “You can easily spend a good deal of money engaging an SEOexpert if you’re not an educated customer. While there are many disreputable providers outthere, even if you are working with a respectable person, you can’t expect to pay him/her oncefor a limited scope project and be finished. If you are going to be online, you need to regularlywork on executing a strong SEO strategy.

If you are not a fan of the key word research, you can ask your SEO expert todo that for you at a set, small monthly rate, so you can just focus on the research results inobtaining a variety of back links for your desired key words to generate traffic to your site. Agood deal of doing this effectively, as well as running your social media campaign (which youshould do as well), requires you to generate a significant amount of subject matter expertcontent about your business and industry. This is not something that your SEO expert is likelyto do well. Also, because it takes a fair amount of time, you can save a great deal of moneycreating this content yourself,”Jason explains.If you are a Small Business Owner, who has made significant savings by adopting various costcutting measures, feel free to share your experience with us.© 2011 Apptivo Inc.
