Branding to a business is sunshine to a flower, it cannot survive without it.
So, you’ve posted your latest content and you’re excited to share your expertise with the world. What happens next? Rather than rely on search engines and your current subscribers to boost organic traffic, we’ve listed six things to do after you’ve written a new blog that should help it get noticed by influencers and ideal customers.
Below, we share three ways that you can check on the SEO health of your content before moving on to more complex marketing strategies.
If you’re stuck on what to write about, ‘Google Trends’ is one of the best sites for discovering trending topics and stories. By searching through the most popular stories and finding the ones that relate to your organisation / business, you can take note of trending keywords and utilise them in your content. That way, when it comes time to analysing your SEO trends, you can at least be confident that you’re writing about relevant and engaging topics.
So, you’ve spent hours on your website and you think it’s coming together pretty well – but have you made sure it looks clear and engaging on both desktop and mobile platforms? Ensuring your content is formatted correctly across all types of digital devices and platforms is crucial, and cannot be understated! The good news is, with BrowserStack you can quickly work out what is and isn’t working across each platform, and adjust as necessary.
Using this free website review / SEO audio tool, you can find out in just a couple of seconds what you need to do to improve your website SEO! For example, maybe you need to add some ALT attributes to your images, or add a proper sitemap.xml file? It’s a quick easy analysis, and you can even download a free PDF report.
While online marketing is an extremely complex and ever-changing world, simple tools such as these can give you a head start; allowing you to get an indication of what you need to build upon to make sure your website content is reaching as many people as possible.
It’s always worth noting however – unless you consider yourself an AdWords and SEO guru – taking the next step toward more complex marketing strategies is generally better left in the hands of a dedicated marketing professional. After all, this is your business!
