Presentation Details

SEO for the Customer Journey

SEO is often thought of as a purely inbound tactic: get people to your website via organic search, then let the website persuade them to convert and let nurture tactics such as email keep them coming back. Modern searchers, however, are using organic search at all steps of their decision-making process. A campaign that’s only focused on getting visitors to the site is leaving a huge chunk of opportunity on the table.

By taking the time to define the steps your customers take in their decision-making process, you can create targeted SEO content to address their needs and concerns every step of the way, building trust and authority in the process. In this session, you will learn:

  • How to research keywords for each stage of the funnel, including customer retention and repeat purchase
  • How to create a content engine focused on your users
  • How to track and report on customer activity through every step of the funnel
  • How to design a conversion rate optimization campaign with lifetime customer value in mind
