It does not matter what sort of business you run, you should support your business’ key digital communications through optimising content. Here are some of the key steps:
SEO, influencer outreach, and PR
In terms of optimising your business’ efforts for SEO, never go down the black hat route, which results in spammy and poor quality pages and, ultimately, a penalty from Google. White hat techniques only!
For influencer outreach, you will need to find and monitor influencers. You can do this via using social media, as well as free tools. You then need to develop a process to engage influencers and convert them into advocates who will share your content.
