SEV

What is the benefit of search?

When people want solutions to their problems, what do they do? They search! Just Google alone receives 60,000 search queries per second, and for a search query like “Car Dealership Near Me” this returns about 791 million results!

What’s better, those who come to your website from a search query are far more likely to engage and convert.

So making your business visible on search engines like Google, is one of the best ways to get in front of the right audience, and at the right time.

Corkboard Concepts’ approach to SEV

When it comes to being visible on search engines the most important thing we consider is, what will bring your business the most ROI? While it may seem favorable to go for keywords that have big search volume, these searches may not be the most relevant or engaged. So, we spend time looking for the search terms that will result in the action you want, whether that’s making a purchase, visiting your store or calling your team. The best part is, all search traffic can be monitored and tracked so you’ll be able to see how the conversion takes place, from first search to the first sale!
