When people need to search for a product or service in 2013, the first thing they do is look it up on Google, Bing, or another search engine. If you’re not working to get your business to show up on these search engines, you’re going to miss out on hundreds, if not thousands, of new leads, sales, and customers. Most people don’t realize how easy it is to take advantage of social networks when it comes to Search Engine Optimization, so we’ve listed 3 below!
1) Create a Pinterest Board
Pinterest is great for getting your business into the spotlight. Create boards that showcase your products and services, as well as boards that will be a useful general resource for your fans and client base. Use keywords in your descriptions of your pins that will help your Pinterest account show up in more search rankings. As you can see, we have a well-balanced account that includes promotional boards as well as useful content for our followers. Check out our Pinterest account here.
2) Make an Account on SlideShare
SlideShare is a great way to not only showcase your talents, but to build up your search engine rankings. Post a presentation related to your industry on this network, and use the title and description areas to bombard with keywords that people search for. This will not only make you seem like an expert in your field – it will also put you at the top of search engines like Google and Bing when people are searching for the very products and services you offer. Our SlideShare account is full of keywords such as “social media marketing” or “social media training.” Check out our SlideShare account here.
Most people today consider Google+ a ghost town, but Google is working hard to make sure it will be worth your while to get active on Google+. This network is going to have a huge impact on search in the future, and is already starting to, so it’s best to get your company active on this network now and get ahead of the competition!
