If you are a business owner, you are better off with a website as the online profile for your business. Without it, you cannot ensure the optimum business experience. However, deciding to get a website and actually turning into a powerful storefront that does the required job are two different things.
A lot goes into crafting that ‘perfect’ website that can bring to you all those things that you have always dreamt of- proper reach, heavy traffic, prime customer engagement, right conversion and success.
All of what makes a website fantastic and functional aims towards one thing- aligning the website with the standards of the search algorithm.
As an SEO Expert, I have talked about the different facets of optimization process on several occasions. The one facet that I am going to discuss in this article is what I consider to be the binding element for most of the factors- Copywriting or Content Creation.
SEO Copywriting is the packaging that wraps and binds the whole of your online storefront. Here’s a list of top copywriting tips from an Expert to help you do it right.
7 Fundamentals for A Rewarding SEO Copywriting Strategy
If there is anything that speaks volumes about the quality and credibility of your enterprise more than anything else, it is what you publish on and through your website. It is your copy-writing’s quality that determines how customers and visitors perceive your business. That is why it has been rightly said that content is king.
I have already discussed about how utilization of solid content helps you in a previous article. In this article, I am about to share with you 7 key insights that will help you boost the quality of your SEO Copywriting.
1) Focusing On The Right Keywords
The most significant characteristic of a solidly written content is how successful it is in delivering the desired message to the desired audience. The level of success for a business in the search rankings depends on a similar notion.
Your business will have the reach and will be noticed when you are able to utilize the website to target the right keywords that are relevant and rewarding for your niche. That is what needs to be kept in mind while creating the content for your website.
An exclusively-tailored keyword research strategy can help you figure out the most rewarding and high-value keywords depending on the type and goals of your business. But that’s not all. You are also required to utilize these keywords and incorporate them in your copywriting to provide a potent base to what you publish.
2) Incorporating Keywords in Title/Meta-Tags
When it comes to the utility of keywords, the main body of content is not the only place where you can make use of them. In fact, there is somewhere else and probably a more important part to incorporate the useful keywords in- the title and meta-tags/meta-description for your content.
When your business website pops up in the search results, the first point of interaction between your customer and your business is the title of the webpage and the meta-description that goes with it.
Whether customers would click on your webpage or skip it depends on how able the title, along with the meta-description, is in enticing the customers and convincing them that they have found what they were looking for. That’s what you should focus on- using keywords in a way that makes the title appealing.
However, make sure that you don’t overdo it and make it seem as if you are trying too hard. Keep it natural and you are good.
3) Avoiding Keyword Stuffing
One of the downsides of adding keywords in your content particularly if you are not careful while doing so is that you mind end up doing what is known as ‘Keyword Stuffing’.
It is actually a situation where in the pursuit of using keywords to make your content relevant for your target customers, you end up overdoing it and stuffing as many keywords as possible in your content, thinking that it will make things better.
However, in reality it is a counter-productive thing that causes harm to your ranking prospects. The search engine AI bots identify such practices and will flag your business as unsuitable for customer engagement. None of us want that and therefore you must use keywords sparingly and only when and where they are required and make sense.
4) Incorporating LSI Keywords
Latent Semantic Keywords or LSI Keywords are those keywords that are not the core keywords for any niche but those that are similar in context and related to the main keywords that you want to focus on for your content.
These keywords are just as useful and can help you incorporate what the customers are looking for without the issue of keyword stuffing, if done in the right manner.
Here’s an example. If your target keyword is ‘SEO agency’, LSI keywords for you would be ‘SEO Consulting Agency’, ‘SEO Marketing Agency’ and things along those lines.
To figure out the possible LSI keywords that can be used think as a customer and what a customer would search if looking for such services/products. Doing so will get you in the right approach towards making the right choice.
5) Ensuring The Perfect Quality
Keywords are not the end of things. While they must form the basis of your content and you should keep in mind the aforementioned points about using them in the right manner, there is something else.
You have to ensure that you add quality to your content. When your content has the uniqueness and the required relevancy and authority, it bears a mark of value, in the eyes of the customers as well as the search engine.
By making use of high-quality images, quoting specific and relevant research and statistical data, you can add up to the quality of your content. Besides, adding backlinks to high-authority and relevant sources can help your business grow manifold.
6) Don’t Leave Them Hanging
Let’s be honest. No one likes to be left directionless and hanging with no clue of what to do next. Your customers won’t like it either. It is therefore crucial that you learn to make use of the right Call-To-Action at the right place.
When a customer has gone through what you have to offer on the website, you want them to be able to easily figure out what they need to do to proceed for whatsoever reason- maybe they want to learn more, maybe they have some confusion, maybe they want you to help them with something else.
Regardless of the various possibilities, an effective CTA button is the right thing to make use of in this situation. Make sure that it is easy to notice/locate, easy to use and has a short, well-delivered message alongside.
7) The Two As
Arrangement and Accuracy- these are the two A’s that you need to keep in mind and incorporate to take your copywriting to the next level. No matter how well you perform in other segments and facets of content creation, if you miss out on the proper structural arrangement and the accuracy of things, you can water down your prospects.
Make sure that your content is accurate grammatically. Also ensure that you structure the content in a way that allows you to represent your thoughts and the things you have to offer in the right light and also makes it easy for customers to understand and navigate through.
These two factors, when taken care of, can help you earn brownie points from the customers and I am sure no real business owner would want to miss out on those.
What Gets Told Is What Gets Sold
They say that the content of your website tells the story. I think it does more than just that. It also sells the story.
As a business owner who is looking to make it big in the market, you should be looking for ways to improve the prospects of selling your story and what you have to offer to the best of your abilities. My years of experience as an expert in the field tells me that SEO is the way forward.
When it comes to crafting your content, these SEO copywriting insights will help you get in the right position to create what works best for you. I hope that you find this article helpful in taking you a step closer to your goals.
