The 3 Key Types of SEO Spa Owners Need
A massive 97% of consumers research local businesses online.
Having a well-crafted search engine optimization (SEO) strategy is essential to making sure your spa, medspa, or aesthetics business tops the search results.
The sooner you start SEO and the more consistent you remain, the more successful (and passive) your results will become.
As a business owner, starting or improving your spa’s SEO marketing journey can feel overwhelming and with far too many options - where should you begin? What’s the best way to implement SEO? Should you go it alone, or hire an expert? And you may even be thinking, “I’ve heard of it, but what the heck is SEO anyway?”
Like other ever-evolving digital marketing tactics, SEO strategies and practices shift rapidly, with search engine algorithms - specifically Google - changing constantly, affecting where your business ranks when searched.
How crucial is SEO?
Research reveals that 90% of Google’s traffic occurs on the first page. This means that your business has a 10% chance of being chosen and receiving a click from an internet user if you are on page two. Page three and beyond are virtually irrelevant. Spas and other aesthetics businesses require a spot on the first page of Google's search results more than other types of businesses as they are most often found online.
“SEO works like a snowball down a hill —it builds upon itself, the larger it gets, the faster it goes, and the more impactful the results will be.”
HLM’s Ryan Files joined Daniela Woerner, owner and CEO of Addo Aesthetics and host of the popular top 100 iTunes podcast Spa Marketing Made Easy to discuss, “The 3 Key Types of SEO Spas Need to Build.”
