Ripped off by your SEO company again? Or is your content looking dated?
Is SEO confusing? What does SEO actually mean? And why does everyone complain about getting ripped off by SEO Agencies? SEO is essentially Search Engine Optimisation (hence, S.E.O). It’s part of digital marketing, which has become a core – and sometimes expensive and confusing – business function that every person, sector and industry needs (with one exception: someone so famous for what they do, everyone knows WHO they are and HOW to reach them – usually through their agent or LinkedIn account).
Definition of SEO:
SEO Definition: Search Engine Optimisation (or “SEO”) means website schema techniques and website content strategies that allow search engines to find your site, based on how you index (list or upload) your offerings including using keywords, tags, videos, photography, headers and alt tags. SEO abilities are some of the most sought after skills in digital marketing today. Popular search engines, such as Google, look at over 500 signals on websites during ‘crawls’ and they frequently update algorithms to give search engine users exactly what they’re seeking to find online. Read the blog “What does seo mean?”
So SEO is ANYTHING but simple…it’s a complex array of different content writing and back-end website techniques including relying on a fast page load speed, properly named file images and video links, and content deemed worthy of being shown in a search result.
In fact, most websites and website owners have NO idea what SEO is, or who to hire. So many have gotten ripped off by dodgy agencies with slick salespeople who then pass along the work to overloaded teams, most working in offshore offices in varying conditions. Don’t let that be you! But that noted, SEO takes time (read my article: How long does SEO take to show effect? and Why isn’t my website on the first page of google yet?)
Firstly, SEO takes time, and a lot of effort. An analogy I heard at a recent SEO expert gathering, that most clients understand, is that SEO is like drilling holes in a large dam wall. Each thing you do releases a bit of that dam water behind the wall, but it takes a lot of drilling – strategically – and a lot of time – to get the water (website visitors) to flow. But if you’re consistent and persistent, and hire good help, you have a shot at being on the first page. That notes, not cheaply, because you and every other business in the world that you’re competing with, wants to be there too! And some of those businesses are spending a LOT more (millions more) to get there. So a bit of cash towards SEO is unlikely to help; but a strategic plan consistently executed will have effect, if done properly and with excellent page load speeds and content.
What makes great website content? Does content help conversion rates?
Content is an art and a science. If you have one person doing content, and another your SEO, it won’t be as good if your content writer is also an SEO expert who ALSO knows you, and your business, very well.
The trouble with most website content is that it’s outdated, boring, and all about the company – nothing about the client. Remember, marketing today is about EXPERIENCES not about sales pitches.
Is your website currently all about you, and too little about your clients? Does it have the RIGHT content in the right places, with the right ALT tags, photos, file names, video links and blogs? Or is it failing to be found at all, yet alone anywhere near the first few pages of Google? If you answer YES to any of these questions, you’re certainly not alone. Over 80% of business have outdated websites they spent far too much creating with an agency, and far too little making it work.
Digital Content counts….you need two things: Traffic and Conversions (meaning – visitors who then want to become your client, patient, buyer or customer).
Are you in need of fresher, better CONTENT writing, web page revisions and new blogs? Do you want an insider to give you honest SEO advice and evidence-based digital marketing strategies? Or perhaps you need effective, brief Video Scripts and integrated digital Marketing Campaigns? If so, you’re not alone, and you should connect with us by emailing Connie May MHST at firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning +61421995522. (We can serve companies in Australia, New Zealand, the USA and the UK with content writing, blogs, video scripts/video production and SEO).
You’re not alone if you find the new world of digital marketing and SEO for medicine and health care services confusing, expensive and inefficient. Everyone’s been ripped off and everyone’s confused and frustrated.
At Doctor My Web, founded by Connie May MHST (a health writer/researcher and program lead for This Way In To Music), we help a select group of clients get more clients, consumers, patients or followers, including book readers or blog and video channel subscribers.
Why there’s a need for DOCTOR MY WEB (part of Health Media Marketing).
Many CEOs, Academics, SMEs, Doctors, Surgeons, Dentists, Psychologists and Counsellors are simply too busy helping patients than trying to understand what digital content strategy and healthcare website SEO actually means.
Sound familiar? You might even expect your busy Personal Assistant or Practice Manager to be able to do their normal tasks PLUS handle digital marketing and website content as well. Those days, sadly, are long gone.
It’s simply against best-practice to let digital marketing and web content updates slide into the low priority lists in today’s fiercely competitive market. Every other business is working to lure your customer away, and if you fail on digital engagement and website conversions, you’ll soon see your bottom line plummeting and find yourself in financial distress.
If you let your digital content become outdated or slow to load; and if you fail to update your conversion materials to turn prospects into paying clients, you’ll also find client attrition suddenly eating away at your student numbers, patient numbers, income streams and your bottom line.
Web Editing: Can’t your graphics team or practice manager manage your entire web site and social media to boot?
Not typically. The big companies have at least 5 staff dedicated solely to social media channels, plus large marketing teams conducting ad campaigns from every possible angle.
For small to medium-sized businesses, it’s simply impossible for your team to do everything that is needed in the modern digital world.
Plus, Google updates – such as the Medic update on 1 August 2018 and further Google algorithm updates in September 2018 – and more to come in 2019 – impacted many clinics, nutritionists, lifestyle businesses and other health and fitness sectors. Getting high SERP rankings on Google – getting found – now takes incredible expertise; and making videos without proper advice won’t help. Most Practice Managers simply don’t have the level of expertise in digital marketing to be able to do everything; and even if they did, something would fall through the cracks. That’s where DOCTOR MY WEB and Health Media Marketing talents for doctors, surgeons and health care clinic services come in.
Will videos help improve my search ranking or website traffic?
Videos are absolutely necessary in today’s digital marketing and globally competitive markets.
Search engines rank sites with videos a lot higher than those without (but ONLY if your site is FAST to load).
So yes, a video can improve your digital presence and market standing. But only a good one. Plus, videos are likely to be a waste of resources unless you seek professional advice about their creation, scripts, filming, branding and distribution. With most company videos getting less than 100 views, they are rarely worth it unless they are PROPERLY concepted and prepared. Without distribution, they’ll just sit there…along with the millions of other videos being uploaded on a daily basis.
Can’t you just build a great website, and the clients will come?
Isn’t that enough to get on the first page of Google or other search engines?
- Think about what being on the first page of Google means. To Google, it means millions of dollars in advertising income.
- To businesses, it’s the make-or-break position. So EVERYONE wants to be there.
- What makes YOUR site unique enough to fit the mold? To get a listing? Or a featured snippet?
- Plus, organic traffic is changing drastically in 2019. It’s not at all as achievable as it once was, with MEDIC UPDATES and other algorithm changes wreaking havoc on medical, education and lifestyle website rankings.
To be seen – and acted upon – in today’s market – is an art, and a science.
Evidence-based approaches are a must, but you must be prepared to invest properly or you’ll fail. It’s not an add on business function – it’s one of the CORE business functions.
Without getting your content and digital marketing right, the other core business functions won’t have funds to rely on; you might as well pack up and go home.
Field of Dreams concepts fail Doctors, Dentists and Healthcare Workers
- In everyone’s DREAMS they are the cleverest, most talented and most experienced person for clients to want to choose their service offers or products.
- In everyone’s current REALITY, clients and consumers have SO many choices, unless you can ATTRACT them, CONVERT them and RETAIN them, you’ll find your business income dwindling down to barely sustainable…or less so.
Again, you MUST invest – time, expertise, knowledge, creative approaches, branding consistency and distribution of quality digital assets (blogs, pages, books, e-newsletters, videos, mixed-media messaging, and media releases).
Engaging clients or consumers today is all about communication. Not sales tactics, more online interactions that provide value and solidify your brand as a top choice / front of mind.
- Many Authors, Educational Institutes, Dentists, Doctors, Allied Health Professionals and Academics also make VIDEO videos that will be seen ONLY by family and friends.
- Or they spend a fortune on a flash-looking website that garners VERY LITTLE if any traffic, yet alone an increase.
- They essentially waste a lot of valuable energy and resources on ineffective digital methods because they simply do not understand what works and what doesn’t in the modern age of digital information and highly-elevated health and education industry competition standards.
But getting RIPPED off by SEO companies or having out-of-date content doesn’t have to be the case.
It’s easy to get ripped off repeatedly by large agencies who overload or underpay their SEO staff, or who rely on teams who lack appropriate grammar, language, image selection and linking skills for healthcare or dentistry.
