If you're going to post content on your site anyway, you might as well take the time to make sure Google takes notice of your effort. -The Content Factory
In a study done by Search Engine Journal, 93% of all traffic comes from a search engine. An impressive statistic, but also scary when you learn that 75% of users never look past the first page of results.
That's why having good SEO is key for businesses looking to increase their search traffic. But good SEO isn't the only piece of the puzzle when it comes to ranking on the front page. Having amazing, informative, helpful content that your readers enjoy & share is critical.
By combining your content marketing & SEO efforts, you'll build an effective marketing channel for your startup that will get you qualified, targeted search traffic. It's how startups like Basecamp, Buffer, & Kissmetrics have grown to reach millions of people through their blog, newsletters, e-books & more.
Join us on July 11th as we dive deep into content marketing & SEO for startups, & how you can use it to grow your business. We'll discuss
Aligning content & SEO
Building a content marketing strategy
Optimizing different forms of content (blog posts, e-books, etc) for long-term results
Adhering to SEO principles & guidelines
Measuring the ROI & other KPIs for content marketing
And much more!
