What is SEO and will it work for my Nashville business?

Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, is a highly effective online marketing strategy that helps websites rank higher in search for certain keywords. If implemented properly, SEO has the potential to offer your Nashville business increased brand awareness, website traffic, and leads. It does this by putting you on the top of the search results for the searches that your target customers are making, getting your brand on their screen.

SEO is all the rage these days. Does a Nashville-based business like mine really need it?

Yes! Here’s why: Google isn’t going anywhere. More and more people turn to Google first, sometimes multiple times a day, when they are looking to purchase a product or service. The higher you appear in the search results page, the more your potential customers will find you.

Today, search engines have added even more sophisticated search capabilities to meet the changing ways customers are finding information online. Location-based search, image search, and voice search are now commonplace. And the technologies that fuel these changes are also becoming even more advanced as more and more consumers are becoming more reliant on search engines. At the turn of 2018, in fact, about 3.5 billion searches were made on Google alone. That’s more than 1.2 trillion searches worldwide which your business could take a piece of. We’ll help you do it right.

We have a shoestring budget. Can our business afford your SEO services?

It all depends on your specific needs. Sometimes, SEO can be a substantial investment. But failing to get your piece of the search-engine pie is a critical oversight that leaves more space for your competitors to steal eyeballs, business, and market share. If properly executed, the long-term value that SEO brings could render your investment negligible.

How can an SEO company increase ROI

By getting your website to rank higher in search and tracking how those higher rankings are translating to website traffic, clicks, and conversions. Our expert team knows how to measure it all and report on it all so you’ll see in the hard data how your investment in Cardinal Marketing SEO services is paying off.

How is SEO going to help us dominate competition here in Nashville?

Nashville is a rapidly growing town, which means your competition gets stiffer each and every day. If your website doesn’t appear within the first three spots on the search results pages when your customers are looking for your product or service, chances are they’ll end up doing business with your competitors. This is where an SEO company—a Nashville SEO company—like Cardinal can be of immense help.

We will conduct a thorough website audit to determine which set of keywords should be used to optimize your web pages for. We will then choose those with the highest demand and profitability. These key words and their variations will be used not just on your web pages, but also on other industry-related websites from which your site will be linked to. By optimizing your website with the right set of key words and linking it to popular websites within your industry in Nashville, your business will become even more valuable to the search engines and increase your ranking in the search results pages.

How soon will we see results?

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee how long before your site gets to the top of the search results. That’s because the rules in SEO change every now and then. What might have worked five years ago may no longer work these days. But here’s what we can guarantee: we will strive to work hard to rank your site higher using only the most up-to-date SEO strategies, and we’ll be transparent—through detailed and regular reporting—about what’s working and what isn’t. This isn’t throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. No, we fine-tune our SEO strategies based on the data. Period.

How do you measure SEO success?

Great question. Really. Because a lot of SEO agencies like to only measure so-called vanity metrics like impressions and clicks. While these metrics have their place, we have the tools in place to measure SEO key performance indicators (KPIs) more comprehensively. We’ll look at site visits, visitor sources, page views, and conversion rate to arrive at real-world ROI.

Do we have to commit to an annual commitment with Cardinal?

We will strive to meet your business goals in the shortest amount of time possible with proven SEO strategies. Initially, we will sign you on for a three-month contract, so you would be able to see how SEO works. Usually, it takes about three months for the effects of properly implemented SEO strategies to be seen. If you like the results, we can then draw up a new, longer-term contract according to your goals and budget.
