For this month, we are taking a closer look at one of the most critical elements of your digital strategy, that can seem obscure and complicated: SEO. We’re here to help guide you through it. Any questions? Let us know!
#1. SEO FOR BEGINNERS
The connective tissue of any digital strategy is SEO, or Search Engine Optimization. Why does it matter? In short, it’s how people find you, and it is affected by every part of your digital strategy from web to email to social media. Semrush is one of our favorite resources for all things SEO related. This video from them is a great place to start to learn about SEO and how your company is doing: SEO Audit Tutorial for 2022.
#2. SEO TO-DO LIST
Now that you understand SEO and how to audit your own, what are your goals? And how can you improve your SEO to align with those goals? Also from Semrush, here is a fairly comprehensive list of things you can do to improve your SEO: 9 SEO Best Practices. Many of these you can implement yourself, or at very least use to guide you through conversations with your digital team.
#3. DON’T FORGET TO EMAIL
Often, email is the most overlooked aspect of a strong digital strategy. When was the last time you reviewed your email strategy?
