At 8848, we have put together 10 reasons on why you should be using SEO and SEM in your business.

Bring your website and brand to the top of search engines, pushing it to the next level of click-through-rate (CTR) and conversions.

In 2022, companies need to be proactive and determined to rank high on the search engine results page (SERP). This way they will be more visible to their audience.

The increasing competition and noise makes it harder than ever for your clients to notice you.

How many times have you been to page 2 of Google? Very rarely, right?! Unless you are desperately trying to find something that probably doesn’t even exist. We have all been there.

You want your brand to be on the first page, always. The second place is the first to lose after all. 

SEO & PPC strategy and optimisation:

As a tried and tested digital marketing agency, we have experienced SEO and PPC’s true power in hoisting our client’s websites to the top of the search engines.

These tools allowed our clients to get more clicks and increase their brand awareness whilst driving more sales.

Well optimized websites will have higher chances of ranking due to the algorithm’s evaluation of your website. A higher score means that search engines will show your website more often (impressions) to people searching for related content. 

A website that is not SEO optimized will not be as visible on the SERP. Since search engines don’t consider it good enough, they will rank it lower in the results page. This basically means that your website and brand are being pushed to the bottom of the page, where only a few lost souls ever go. 

SEO Results:

If you are doing PPC, search engines also look into your SEO results.

Having a good SEO strategy and optimization will also help you once you plan on using PPC.

SEO optimization will help your paid ads get a better quality score, this will increase your impressions and clicks.

Optimised websites will tell Google, Bing or any other search engines what your content is about, how trustworthy your website is and how knowledgeable you are about the product/service that you are offering.
