It’s no secret that SEO is a key component to any online marketing strategy. No other tool in existence will help you create a more user-friendly website while driving your web page ranking in Google and bringing happy, eager pool and spa lovers to your showroom.
The recent State of SEO survey, conducted by Zazzle Media in the UK, shows that more marketers than ever are taking SEO seriously and that they are trying to incorporate SEO into their marketing plans.
More than 30,000 marketers in the UK were approached, with 88% of them saying that SEO was an important part of their marketing plans. Sixty percent of those respondents even said that it was an “extremely important factor” when it came to the success of their campaigns.
This makes sense, since over three-quarters said SEO has increased their leads (77%) and improved brand awareness (79%), and another 48% said that SEO was responsible for reducing their customer acquisition costs.
Why SEO Is Still a Challenge for Online Marketing
Despite acknowledging the importance of SEO, a lot of marketers simply can’t take advantage of it nearly as much as they would like. The main reason being cost. One-third of respondents said that they just didn’t have the budget to take full advantage of SEO.
Another glaring issue was that businesses thought they knew a lot about SEO, with 71% of respondents saying that their organization’s SEO knowledge was in the “expert level” range. However, as the survey found, a lot of marketing teams had nowhere near that level of knowledge or expertise.
