The number of people using web services suddenly fluctuated because of the pandemic. It means that many of your potential customers are online. Moreover, search engine optimisation (SEO) has become a vital component of every effective marketing plan. If you wish to improve your brand awareness, reach a broader audience, and earn more profit, you need SEO.

Your potential customers are more likely to be online, looking for the same services or products as yours. So, consider applying the best SEO practices to achieve the following benefits.

1. Reaches more people

The first benefit of SEO is that it can help you reach more of your target audience. SEO attracts people online with intent at a given period, regardless of their current stage in the buying funnel. For instance, using target keywords attracts more potential customers who are likely to do business with you.

2. Builds brand credibility and reliability

Through effective SEO, you can top Google’s search results. Ranking high in the SERP means that the search engine sees your website as a relevant, legitimate, and valuable source of information. You will look more reliable and credible, so users will prefer you over other websites.

If you are in the iGaming industry, hiring a reliable SEO agency like Ocere can help you establish a good brand reputation. An SEO agency can help you develop and grow your casino, sports betting, or esports brand by improving your website’s authority through link building, on-page content optimisation, and more.

3. Ranks better in local searches

Nowadays, people commonly do local searches like “restaurants near me.” In fact, 97% of consumers search for local businesses online. Local SEO strategies will allow you to lead these searchers to you. People who are doing local searches are usually the ones who are ready to buy.

To get started:

- Create a Google My Business account and see that all your information is correct.
- Ensure your listing is optimised for voice search by writing your content clearly, and conversationally.
- Encourage your clients to leave reviews.
- Create local business directory listings and consider using local keywords.

4. Provides a better user experience

Another benefit of an effective SEO is it provides a better user experience. To achieve this, you must deliver the following:

- Relevant information
- Easy-to-navigate site pages
- Related videos or photos to support text
- A mobile-friendly web configuration

If you provide a better user experience, you’ll get more leads, brand recall, clicks, and higher conversion rates.

5. Costs less than PPC

Unlike PPC, SEO is more effective and less costly. In PPC, you must invest money to gain sales and clients by promoting commercial content and products. On the other hand, you invest in SEO for long-term value. Effective SEO can help you drive web traffic, gain awareness, and others that result in sales.

6. Provides 24/7 promotion all days of the year

SEO eliminates the time barrier, allowing your potential customers to find you anytime they want. Original, organic, and optimised content won’t disappear even if your budget gets low. It means that your company can continue making sales and cater to your customers’ needs all hours of the day, 365 days every year.

Applying effective SEO will allow you to improve user experience, rank you higher for organic keywords, convert leads to repeat customers, and more. If your brand is constantly promoted through SEO, imagine how many people will notice you online.

7. Brings higher close rates

The close rate shows how many sales have been closed compared to the proposals sent. It measures the efficiency of a sales team or sales professional in terms of performance. Unlike outbound lead generation, SEO provides a more significant close rate. The reason is that the interaction in outbound leads is unsolicited or unnatural.

8. Provides a lot of useful insights and information

SEO can help you know more about your customers. Since you have to optimise your website according to your customer behaviour and other factors, you’ll learn where or what particular time, day, month, or year they are active.

Google Analytics is one of the tools used in SEO. This tool can give you a spectrum of information about interests, browsing behaviour, and more things about users.

Takeaway

SEO is non-negotiable if you want your brand to be seen online. While you can apply basic SEO to your website once you try learning it online, getting professional help is still the leading way to ensure success.
