Marketing Goals & Strategies

There are two goals to SEO… attract visitors and convert. However, the BlendSEO view is that of a marketing consultant, from a broader view.  SEO bleeds into other areas of social media, events, PR & content generation.  In a sense, SEO is a contest in thought leadership – becoming a trusted resource on your subject matter. All efforts should blend to support lead qualification, nurturing and the general sales or conversion process.  BlendSEO search engine optimization consulting strategies are specific to your needs, but often include a combination of content generation/distribution/marketing, market driven on page optimization, decisive interlinking or cross-linking, direct response marketing devices with calls to action and highly targeted link building.

Every website SEO begins with consumer research.  This includes keyword research for the target market, an interview from your sales expert and competitor research.
