Written by Doug Collins | May 19, 2015 3:00:00 PM
Out of all the ways that search engine optimization can help your business, there are a few key signs that let you know when it's time to hire someone to help manage it all. The internet is like a vast wilderness of information, with fires and plumes of smoke billowing into the sky for all to see. Those fires are sites with proper search engine optimization (SEO). The fire is easy to see, and if someone is too far away to see the flames, they can still see the smoke. There are three main stages where SEO can help you.

Ignite

SEO can and will help to create a better website (this assumes you already have one) for your customers. Not only will it be better, but it will also be faster and friendlier. This smoother and more efficient site will help you get your customers to keep coming back. Everybody likes repeat customers.

SEO gets you better rankings in search engine result pages. The higher you are on the page, the more visible you are, which will translate to more customers.

Fuel

The thing about SEO is that it keeps both the customers and search engines happy, which means that your site is easy to find. Keeping that in mind, an SEO optimized site is easy to use and compatible with mobile and tablet devices which are wildly popular. In August 2014, the number of people of shopping on mobile devices surpassed PC shoppers. If you aren't optimized for mobile devices, you are cutting yourself off from half the business you could be open to.

Sustain

Part of lasting in your business is reliant, in part, on your ability to separate yourself from your competition. If your competition is not search engine optimized, then this is your chance to make your business stand out. If they are currently using SEO services, then it's time to get started yourself.

There are a lot of companies that manage SEO, and selecting the best SEO company is important. A company managing your SEO should be comprehensive in their approach. In fact, let us give you a look at what we can do for you.

Remember, you have to guide your customers through the online wilderness, so make your fire bright, and make yourself stand out with SEO.
