It is important that search engine optimization be targeted to industry in order to remain competitive in those fields. General SEO/SEM strategies often aim for a too large portion of the SEO pie and will quickly fall flat. We target niche markets, unique to individual industries, in order to attract the right kind of customers. Our industry specific Internet marketing infiltrates an array of SEO/SEM tactics:

  • Keyword Research and Targeting: We find which keywords/keyphrases people are using to find products and services like your own. We then target the phrases that have an accessible or workable level of competition and hold the most potential for site visits and conversions.
  • Link Campaigns: By understanding the industry, we can understand the community and what is valuable in that community. We then form an idea of what kind of link sources and partnerships to target.
  • Social Media, Blogging & Article Writing: We want to know what the community is talking about, what they like and what they don’t like. By staying up to date on industry specific trends, we can write articles that are truly interesting for its intended readers.
  • Competitor Research: We analyze the major competitors in your industry to determine their most successful strategies then customize a SEO/SEM plan that works for your website.
  • Web Design: Businesses have specific needs for their websites based on the industry they’re in. We can design a website that meets those needs while remaining engaging for the targeted audience.
  • Specialized Search SEO: Local search, shopping search and mobile search are a few examples of specialized search offered by Google, Yahoo and Bing. The utilization of and strategy involved with these search options will vary based on industry criterion and individual business needs.

A valuable member of our team

Although technically a consultant, Chris has been an important part of our team for nearly 8 years now. During the his time with us he has kept us on the first page of Google for some very competitive keywords including our highest prirority target, Nicaragua real estate, and has continued to drive high quality referrals to our business. Unlike many in the search industry he has been able to keep up with the changes and has worked closely with us to stay on top of both social media and local search as both have become increasingly important factors in our industry.

Highly recommend

As a locally focused small business I feel like Chris and his team were the perfect resource to help me get my business launched on the web. Chris was very knowledgable, straight forward and spoke simple English through the whole process, and within a few weeks I had a great looking site that was already driving business and literally paid for itself within the first couple of months. He helped me set up a low cost but effective local advertising campaign on Google that sends me business without costing me a fortune and also made helpful suggetions on other places I can advertise with a limited budget or for free. Business is going great and Chris and his team played a big part in that.
