Reasons Why SEO is STILL the Best Marketing Strategy for Local Businesses

“SEO is dead!”

Outraged cries fill the streets as a disgruntled mob of entrepreneurs and marketers march towards Google’s headquarters, pitchforks in hand.

After all of these years of following Google’s best practices and slaving tirelessly over their precious keywords and algorithm updates, they have come to the unsettling realization that their efforts were all in vain.

And now, they are ready to exact their revenge on the “Wonder Twins” to make up for the years of lost time and money…

But there’s just one tiny little problem with the above scenario.

The angry mob has been wildly misinformed…

SEO is far from dead.

In fact, it is stronger and more important than it has ever been.   

From Google executives to top ranked marketing wizards like Neil Patel, nearly everyone in “The Know” agrees that SEO hasn’t died, it has just changed forms.

And this is especially true for smaller businesses.

If you can learn and master SEO, the sky is truly the limit.

It is the key to attracting high level clients in 2017 and if you learn to use it properly, you will experience an explosive growth in your client base and revenue that is unlike anything you have experienced before.

Imagine if you could cut your current marketing budget in half while simultaneously doubling or tripling your customer base.

Imagine if instead of spending hours upon hours endlessly searching for new leads and clients you could just sit back, take a sip of your iced macchiato, play a few rounds of Candy Crush, and watch clients come to you.

I know that this might sound like a pipe dream to some of you.

But for the entrepreneurs who have learned how to overcome Google’s psychological warfare and leverage local SEO, this is their reality.

If you are a small business owner looking to truly take your company to the next level in the new year, then you need to take a good, hard look at the following information.

The train is leaving the station and I can promise you that you don’t want to be left behind.

    I have long felt that SEO and Marketing must be treated separately. No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both. I know this is from The Bible but it is sound advise. I disagree that you can slash your marketing budget and make up that difference in a Higher SEO Ranking. Slashing the Marketing Budget and investing in Better and Smarter Marketing Tools and Processes will be a more measurable and sustainable way of generating traffic.
