Get found online by more customers (SEO for business owners)
Event on 2015-11-25 09:00:00
Promote your website to an audience hungry to buy, more often, through search engine optimisation, even if you know nothing about websites.
Dear Business owner,
You wouldn’t buy a ferrari and leave it hidden in a dark alley.
Likewise there is not much point having a website and then having it hidden in the depths of the search engine results. You need to get people to it. You need traffic. One of the best methods is getting high on the first page of Google.
Search Engine Optimisation (or SEO) is a collection of methods, processes and strategies that allow you to highlight your relevance to the search engines so that your website ranks strongly.
Consider your own search habits?
If you need to find something – you google it.
Rarely will you go past the first page.
And in fact the very first result on Google can get the lion’s share of people looking for that service or product.
If you have a website then it is likely to be your most effective marketing tool. To get the most from it you need to have a working knowledge of SEO and how search engines operate.
Who is this workshop for?
