Selling SEO to the SEO challenged

Educate

The first thing you are supposed to do is teach them about SEO. You must understand that many people are ignorant about the topic. It will, therefore, take you a lot of energy to convince them. They might be aware of what they want to do but how to do it becomes a problem. Quacks and people who do not believe in SEO make it worse. To pull through, do not tell them what SEO is, tell them the importance of SEO and how it can help them reach more people online. This way there business will grow globally. The client you are trying to convince must have a website, if they do not have, convince them to get one.

Explain how search engine works

If you get too technical, they might not understand even a single thing. Too much jargon makes them lose interest in the topic, and you are losing business.

Explain SEO stuff

After they have understood how the search engine works, reveal Search engine optimization. Explain to them the process and the benefits they will get as a company from using it. Tell them that SEO is the only simplest way to make sure that your customers are following you. Avoid SEO jargons as well. Give them an online presentation if possible.…
