We want to pull relevant traffic to our website, as these will most probably turn out to be quality leads which have a higher chance at conversion. Which is why organic search engine traffic is the best traffic. You may ask why?
It’s simple, because these people are already searching for the term which your content is ranking for. When people search for specific terms, it means they are looking for a solution, and your business can provide the solution for them. This works way better than “pushing” out advertisements asking people to buy from you.
The cost of SEO is significantly lower than running paid ads, thus decreasing acquisition cost per customer. You could even say that SEO is FREE if you have the experience and know-how to implement it yourself.
Otherwise the only cost you incur for doing SEO is hiring a trustworthy SEO agency to help grow your rankings.
As mentioned above, by putting out good content with a well-thought-out SEO strategy, we are able to pull more relevant traffic to your business website. Traffic which reaches your website via SEO strategies are more likely to convert as the audience fits your website content.
This also means that there’s an intent in the search, an intent to look for a service or product to solve their problem, and your website fit their search intent. So, the likelihood for conversion for traffic with intent is exceptionally high compared to traffic which came from a paid advertisement.
We’re in business for the long-term, and unless you are a multi-million-dollar company, you probably don’t have the marketing budget to put out paid advertising for the long term. Your best bet then is to pull traffic to your business website instead of pushing out ads.
