SEO is a Long Term Strategy
So you’ve heard the buzz: when it comes to marketing your business, SEO is the way to go!
(What is SEO? – click through for a simple explanation.)
It’s the marketing method of the future. That’s because people are living in the online world more and more each day – reading, playing, chatting, banking, researching and shopping.
Naturally, you want your website to be the one they find when they are researching and shopping for your product or service – and not those of your competitors! This is where SEO comes into play.
However, there’s both good news and bad news.
The Bad News
The bad news first: SEO is a long term strategy.
To quote the old shampoo ad: it won’t happen overnight, but it will happen. It usually takes about 8-12 weeks for any SEO strategies (eg new web content) to gain traction on Google; 6-12 months for it to reach its full potential.
(Sidenote: We often report on improvements from our SEO Boost packages by the time we send out the final report, just 6 weeks after commencing!)
But anything good is worth waiting for, right?!
The Good News
And now for the good news: SEO is a long term strategy.
The benefits last far beyond what you can achieve with other forms of marketing and promotion – long after:
- Your newspaper ad has become wrapping for fish and chips;
- Your letterbox drop has been tossed into the recycling bin;
- Your radio spot has gone silent;
- Your 5 minutes of TV fame have passed.
The beauty of SEO is that it keeps on working for you for months, even years to come. It’s a marathon, not a sprint; while it might be a slow starter, it really goes the distance!
