In the past, creating solid SEO meant using a bunch of tricks on your website. SEO used to focus on individual keywords and how pages rank based on these keywords. Content would exist only to bump search engine rankings. Plus, backlinks could be as spammy as possible and still contribute towards a high placement. (Just search for “SEO tricks,” they never seem to end.)

Now, SEO is all about how people engage with you online and focuses on ROI. Keywords are more purposeful as we consider the intent and user needscontext matters! That extends to content on a larger scale. The higher quality the content and more value it provides to your customers, the better your website ranks. All of this contributes to your authority online. Links only contribute to high SEO placement and are often built through relationships. Across the board, these practices are integrated into our web development processes. Regardless, you’ll see positive results in just 6 months through “new” SEO!

SEM is often lumped in with SEO, but it’s actually a separate and equally important part of your online marketing efforts. SEM lets you identify which potential customers you want to target with ads based on location, search and purchasing history, and other demographic data, so you’re intelligently presenting your business offerings to customers who have a much higher likelihood to close than with traditional advertising methods. What does that mean for you? Industry average ROAS (return on ad spend) using SEM services is at minimum 2:1 (that’s $2 back to your business for every $1 spent), and the best part is, these results can be seen immediately.
