Myth 3: I am a Social Media ninja. I don’t need SEO
I hear ya. I also get many of my clients from Instagram and Facebook groups–however, consider this crazy cool live stat feed, there are nearly 3 BILLION google searches a day.
Why limit yourself to the few hundred possible clients in a facebook group when there are literally 3 Billion people on the interwebs searching today? Isn’t it worth being found?
Pro Tip: Make a list of some key phrases that you are known for or what you want to be known for. For example it can be something like:
“Northern Virginia Newborn Baby Photographer” or “Gluten Free Weeknight Family Meals” make your phrases 3-5 words and fairly specific.
Next google them, be sure to use quote marks. If you don’t you are telling google to simply find the words on the page–not necessarily in the same sentence, so the search results may not be relevant.
So, where are you in the search results? Are you within the top 5 pages? 10? Wanna fix that?
