SEO is a key growth channel for your business, but the rules of SEO have changed dramatically in recent years.
To grow your business in today's economy, you need a strong online presence. But what does that entail exactly?
Marketing is no longer about mass-market advertising and outbound sales; it's about capturing demand - grabbing the attention of people already looking to make a purchase or acquire specific knowledge. To do that, your content needs to be at the top of Internet search results.
Many businesses and marketers toss up a brochure-style website, do a little social media and blog posting (if any), and think they're "doing SEO" - but that's not what it takes to get those coveted first page Google rankings.
No longer just another tactic, search engine optimization has become a full-blown channel on par with PR and advertising - one you can't afford to ignore. From website designers to business owners, marketers to entrepreneurs, everyone can benefit from understanding and applying SEO best practices.
John Jantsch, author of the best-selling Duct Tape Marketing and creator of the Duct Tape Marketing System™, and Phil Singleton, an experienced SEO consultant with years of experience at the local, regional, and national levels, have teamed up to provide you with the only Internet marketing guide you need. In SEO for Growth, they teach you how to leverage the new rules of search engine optimization to make sure your website gets found online. Jantsch and Singleton harness the knowledge they've acquired through years of experience and extensive research, explaining SEO in a direct and accessible manner, to help you navigate this complex technical terrain with purpose and ease.
