What are SEO services and how do they affect a North Dakota company? Well, it’s a common thought by most ND small business owners that they need to have a large, powerful, well-funded website in order to compete with the ranks of corporate leaders everywhere in the world of SEO. While having a large, established website and/or a substantial budget does give big businesses an advantage, it doesn’t mean that you can’t compete with them with a much smaller checkbook. There are countless examples of smaller companies ranking higher than big, brand name websites in Google and with a little help from an effective and efficient Small Business SEO plan through one of North Dakota’s proven SEO consultants, you can be there too.
The one mistake we see over and over again at Simple Start SEO is targeting the wrong information to reach the right customer. For example, SEO companies frequently use their own services and products to market themselves online thinking that their ideal customer is going to use those particular search terms to find what they’re looking for. An SEO consultant, just getting started, focused on providing general search engine optimization services won’t be able to rank their website higher than the biggest SEO companies operating in the industry for the keyword “SEO”. The big SEO companies who offer these services are so established online that it would likely take years for a smaller operation to rank in the top 5 for that particular keyword with a dedicated effort.
Effective Search Engine Optimization & Online Marketing Strategies
Any small business, no matter which type of North Dakota Business you have, or industry you work within, the assistance of a proven SEO consultant could realistically get your website to the top of Google, especially if the keyword is “geo-targeted” to a particular city or town, such as Fargo, Bismarck, Minot, or Grand Forks.
For those longer, more specific keyword phrases, there will probably still be larger SEO companies ranking on the 1st page, however, they can be outranked with effective search strategy. An important part of search engine optimization that if often overlooked is the fact that Google ranks individual webpages, not websites. They want to return the best specific webpage for a search query, regardless of whether that page is on a small or larger website. Writing and optimizing a dedicated information page for the keyword “SEO consultant Fargo” has huge potential to rank highly in the eyes of Google as long as the info is relevant to the keyword targeted.
Are You Found Online for the Keywords You Target?
Big companies might have big budgets to spend on their websites, but they can’t create a great, relevant page for every keyword phrase related to their industry, and that leaves windows of opportunity for smaller companies, even in competitive industries such as pet services, pest control, handyman jobs, builders, movers, lawn/landscaping, and cleaning companies. To be able to take advantage of those opportunities, they need to have a game plan and implement an search engine optimization consultant strategy involving high quality content (that’s better than the articles currently on the 1st page) which is very closely related to the products or services they want to target for their area of interest in North Dakota.
To rank higher than larger companies though, a small business needs to do more than just create pages of high quality content – they need to promote it to. They need to let people know about it so that others can link to it. It’s vitally important that this happens because Google predominantly relies on links to evaluate the quality of a webpage.
Marketing Through Content Creation & Delivery
People will respond to you if enticed and engaged in a strategic way. Writing the best content for Google AND for your end user results in a win-win situation for your website AND your customer. Simple Start’s strategic plan, as an effective SEO consultant, is choosing the right words to market your business online, creating the best pages and getting the information on those pages seen by the right people. We do this for ALL of our North Dakota SEO clients. In most cases, results are not overnight, but it does work and it does allow you to compete with large ones in any given industry. Anyone can do this, regardless of who the competition is or what product is featured.
At this point, you either have top rankings, or you don’t. You are either willing to do something to get top rankings, or you aren’t. What is true for you and what does that truth mean to you, your small business and your goals? It has been said that inaction is action. So, the question is – you are already taking action in some form, so are you taking the right action?
Search Engine Optimization may not be for you. You may not want a lot of new traffic and leads that could ultimately end up in increased profits or residual customers. But if you want or need traffic, leads and sales – then you need top rankings within Google and it starts by employing the information you just read as well as the additional resources you may gain from our site and eventually asking us for a detailed SEO Audit or choosing one of our effective SEO Packages.
