    Posted by Lisa Kirschner

    Aug 30, 2019 5:39:50 PM

    Not getting as much traffic as you need to meet your marketing goals or grow your business? Here are five ways that you can start to drive more traffic to your website without a ton of effort.

    1) Blog more
    Don't like blogging? I don't want to hear it! This is, hands down, THE best way to get more traffic quickly and easily — but the key is that you shouldn't write long, "salesy" blog posts that push your products or services. Instead, offer helpful tips, ideas, news or content that helps your prospects solve their problems and provides real value to them.

    Posted by Lisa Kirschner

    A few of our clients have asked us about SearchEngineJournal's recent "Google made 3,200 changes to search in the past year" article that was published in July.

    We've received a ton of questions about this, including:

    • What does that mean for me and my site?
    • Is search engine optimization really still important?
    • Will this negatively impact my traffic and SERPs?
    • How do we best respond to so many changes?
    • I'm not a webmaster...what should I even DO?
    • How do we even keep up with that many changes?

    DuckDuckGo proposes the “Do-Not-Track Act of 2019" (Search Engine Land)
    If this law passes, you'd be required to honor users' tracking preferences, which means you'd have less data to utilize when planning and optimizing marketing and advertising campaigns.

    Content marketing is a commitment, not a campaign

    Posted by Joanna Ellis-Escobar

    Content marketing is a commitment, not a campaign. 

    How totally (and for some, dauntingly) true is this?! So often (too often, really), we get the same push back when it comes to content marketing.

    “We tried. It didn’t work.”

    My response, every. single. time. I hear this?

    “OK…I understand. I really do. Would you mind sharing a bit more about how or what you tried? What did you do?”

    And, it never fails. I get the same answer, time after time.

    "We blogged for [insert any length of time…a month, a quarter, a year] and nothing happened."

    And there it is. I’ve said it before, and I’ll probably say it a thousand more times – content marketing is NOT a set it and forget it project. It’s a commitment. A dedicated, consistent, concerted commitment to so much more than just writing and posting a blog. To successfully create and implement a content marketing strategy (that WORKS), you must be willing to do it all.
