WHAT IS SEARCH ENGINE MARKETING (SEM)?
Search Engine Marketing (SEM) combines the search engine tools available to us, into a holistic marketing strategy for your business.
Most commonly, SEM looks to leverage local search engine optimisation (SEO), which concerns itself with ranking you higher organically, with Google’s Search Ads, the paid advertising platform.
If you ever wanted a secret insight into SEO, here’s one for you. We know that paid advertising on Google, directly impacts your organic ranking.
HOW DOES SEM WORK?
Using industry tools available to us, we create a strategy of keywords that you would likely to rank for over time and determine the difficulty of achieving this.
With a roadmap planned out, we proceed to tackle any technical performance issues with your website, followed by optimising your website’s content to perfectly reflect your customers’ search intent.
The more we can optimise, and the more data we gather over time, the more we are able to target and home in on those customers with high commercial intent.
WHY SEM OVER SEO OR PPC ALONE?
If you’re a small business with a limited budget, you might consider narrowing yourself down (temporarily) to only one particular type of service such as Google Ads PPC, or Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). These can net tremendous results but be aware that these results eventually fade, and you’re always at the mercy of algorithm changes on the respective platform.
Spreading your strategies across multiple platforms not only generates multiple lead streams, but you’re also minimising the impact an algorithm update on either the search or advertising platforms can have on you.
SEO is generally a more long-term approach, and thus coupling it with the immediacy of Google Search Ads can also offset the investment one has to make into organically improving ones ranking.
