How to Find Your Target Audience


Understanding your audience will boost your effectiveness exponentially.

This applies to every marketer, whether you are an SEO, PPC expert, or even marketing via snail mail. (Even my son who sells gum to his classmates when the teacher isn’t looking can benefit from this lesson!)

Everything starts there.

The reason is simple. Once you know what makes your audience tick, you can design a sales funnel that’s personalized to their needs.

What’s more, understanding your audience applies to every aspect of your marketing.

In this post, I’ll be getting into how to find your target audience and do better marketing.

SEO Funnels - Earning Your Customers Through Relationship Building


As an SEO or digital marketer, I’m sure you’ve heard about sales funnels.

Ever wonder what a sales funnel is or how they affect your SEO?

Sales funnels are at the heart of your marketing and sales and this means as an SEO you should be focused on far more than just rankings and visibility.

SEO is a form of marketing.

And by building funnels into your SEO, you are creating a true SEO strategy. Without funnels, SEO is just a tactic to drive traffic, nothing more.

I mean, you wouldn’t spend your client’s money setting up paid ads without thinking about where that traffic is going to, so why should your client pay you month after month to generate organic traffic that has no chance of converting?

SEO Title Tags - A Complete Guide


The importance of SEO cannot be stressed enough, or more precisely, the organic traffic that SEO brings.

The reasons are pretty simple. If you venture into an online business, SEO is there to enhance customer traffic and raise your reputation, giving you an advantage on the market.

But SEO is mathematics, and it has a proper way of doing things, which includes various technical details. One of those details is title tags.

So, the question then follows - why are title tags so crucial for building your SEO?

First things first, if you didn’t know by now, you should learn what title tags are and what’s their primary function. Title tags are coded HTML tags that involve selecting a specific title for a website. The location of the title tag is always on the title bar of the selected browser and the Search Engine Result Page, or in short - the SERP.

This was a simple explanation of what precisely SEO title tags are. We’re going to discuss the significance of title tags for organic SEO traffic in-depth.

What are SEO friendly URLs? - SEO Basics


SEO practices change and evolve - this is no secret. So, when it comes to URLs, they usually aren’t a top priority for ranking high.

But do URLs matter for SEO in the long run?

Yes!

This element might be less significant than titles, headings, and keywords, but it plays a vital role in helping your website rank high. Therefore, excluding URLs from your SEO strategy could cost your website to perform poorly. URLs help browsers and crawlers access and shine a light on your webpages, so their structure and the overall site architecture are vital for SEO.

There are multiple ways to structure your URLs, and they will help in complementing your SEO strategy. That’s why we’ll be going over the basics to show you how you can structure your URLs and help your website rank higher.
