Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) helps your business to appear organically in the Google search results (non-advertising).
The pages of your website and its helpful content will appear when your ideal clients are searching for what you have on offer. The more traffic your website gets the more leads and ultimately the more sales.
SEO is a longterm strategy which builds longterm results and revenue.
SEO allows your business to focus on all stages of your marketing strategy. You can attract researchers (of your product/service) through to people who are ready to buy and every stage in between.
Many people trust the organic results over paid advertising as Google is showing them what they are truly looking for. If you are ignoring SEO then this is one area that your business may be missing out on gaining longterm success.
Pay per click marketing like Google Ads can provide an excellent return on investment and immediate results.

There are other PPC methods of advertising but Google Ads will provide you with the best return on your investment.
Email Marketing is the final piece of the 3 piece puzzle and one of the best ways to get up close with your email contacts. Emarketing can nurture your followers to build loyalty and to take subscribers from awareness to purchase and then to repurchase. Statistically, emarketing has shown to return an average of $44 for every $1 spent with the retail businesses able to capitalise on this number the most.
Emarketing is for all businesses and the most direct way that you can stay in touch with your email list.
