Search Engine Optimization Packages for Advisors
You’ve invested time and money in the development of your firm’s website. And now, if it’s like most websites . . . “crickets.” Is your website:
- drawing the traffic you had hoped for?
- showing up on Google Maps?
- ranking ahead of your competition for industry keywords?
If your site seems too quiet, it’s probably not your imagination, and you’re definitely not alone.
Organic search (the focus of SEO) accounts for 53% of all website traffic – more than social media, social media advertising, Google Ads, direct traffic, and traffic from links on other sites – all combined! In fact, SEO drives 1000+% more traffic than organic social media (Brightedge).
Search Engine Optimization can identify the content you should be adding based on what your prospective clients are searching for, make sure that the search engines find your content, and over time, can raise your content to the top of the search engines.
