Advertising 101 – Know Your Target Audience

Best in Las Vegas SEO Target Audience PeepsFinding and narrowing your target audience, even for the best seo firm in Las Vegas, is the first step in any marketing campaign. This is true for the magazine advertising professionals at Ogilvy & Mather, and is also important for SEO firms and internet marketers. That’s why initially we spend a lot of time speaking with you about what you do and who your customers are.

If you are reading this your customers are probably your business’s lifeblood and central concern. I know it’s mine!

Your customers are going to be at the core of how we optimize your website’s search engine results, and they will also be central to what keywords and phrases we focus on to get to the top of search engine results.

SEO FUNDAMENTALS

Search Engine Optimization is a complex endeavor. How each search engine ranks a website, or page, when certain keywords are searched for is made up of thousands of factors. Although, the foundation can be broken down into two main strategies >>> On-Page SEO and Off-Page SEO.

On-Page SEO: Any search engine optimizing done on your website. (content, structure, copywriting, etc.)

Off-Page SEO: Any search engine optimization from external sources. (i.e. links to your website, social media, etc.)

Both of these items are the building blocks of any effective search engine ranking strategy.

But don’t take it from me.. Google made a handy dandy starter guide for those new to SEO >> Google SEO Starter Guide

LET’S BE HONEST ABOUT THE COSTS OF OPTIMIZING YOUR WEBSITE FOR SEARCH ENGINES

Avoid Cheats and Scams that offer – “For a $150 a month I will get you on the first page of Google…” As you search for the right SEO team you will probably hear this phrase above. It is not true! If everyone could pay $150/month and be listed number 1 on Google, you would already be number 1?

The point here is, you can find an SEO package for $150 or $200 a month, but I won’t get you to the front page, or be the best bang for your buck. Every successful campaign must be tailored toward your business, products, and industry.

Example: Most SEO companies charge around $50 an hour for their services. So for $150/month you would get only 3 hours of of optimization and web content creation work/month from these so called professional. And take it from me, they wont get a whole lot accomplished in 3 hours a month.

GETTING RANKED ON GOOGLE IS HARD – THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR MAGIC CURES

We have the experience and the knowledge to setup, maintain and advance your website seo. We will break down every aspect of the process and tell you how it is; not what we think you want to here. You will receive weekly performance reports that outline your progress and how you match up against your competition.

Getting ranked on the top page of Google and Bing is hard. It’s a continuous process requiring a lot of time, consistency, knowledge, skill, and dedication.

SEO PRICING

SEO pricing is hard to determine without all the facts. Meaning, we need to know what industry your business is in (some industries are more competitive than others). We need to know where you’re located (some areas are more competitive than others). We need to know if you need local or international SEO services (both have their hurtles. However, International can be much more competitive, thus much more expensive.. Again based on industry, etc..)
