SEO and SEM Strategies for Roofers
It takes time and patience to rank on the first page of Google, Yahoo! and Bing. Anyone who tells you that it happens overnight doesn’t understand the process or strategy. The good news is, we can help you land those coveted spots for your roofing business in your area through SEO and SEM (search engine marketing) using targeted keywords for your industry.
Originally called Search Engine Marketing (SEM), the quicker term these days is “search marketing.” This includes both organic search (getting traffic through free listings) and paid search (getting traffic through paid search listings). Generally, SEO takes much longer to see results. Especially in an industry as competitive as roofing.
Search Engine Marketing, because it involves paying for ads, has a sense of immediacy for your roofing company. If you’re looking to increase your traffic and visibility right away, paid advertising will give you results much more quickly. However, both strategies are crucial to the overall success of your business.
Roofing is a competitive industry, and for booming industries like yours, it could take up to 20 hours a week to devote to proper SEO. Over the long term, this strategy can take between nine months and three years to implement and notice positive results. Do you have the time and unflagging patience to ensure this plan is well executed and on-point? We can bet you’d rather spend your resources on someone’s roof making money than sitting behind a computer.
In addition to SEM and PPC, we are aggressive in our approach called white-hat SEO, which involves the following:
- Keyword analysis
- On-page optimization
- Off-page optimization
- Content generation
No matter how flashy or clever your website is, it means nothing if you can’t reach the people you need to reach – specifically, customers who need roof repair, replacement, inspections, and etc. For SEO to be effective, it’s important to understand your business, brand, goals, and direction of your company.
With thousands of people searching online for roofing services in your area at any given time, you need to be accessible to them. That means you must be easily found on the major search engines. When done correctly and methodically, SEO will help your business display at the top of those results.
Let’s look at this example:
A homeowner has been noticing curling and peeling of his shingles lately and his energy efficiency in the home is decreasing. He knows he may need a new roof but he has no clue where to start. He’s new to the area and doesn’t know any roofers personally.
He sits down at his computer and types in “roofers in Dallas.” What will pop up on that first page? More specifically, those first few coveted spots? If your company doesn’t pop up on that first page, you just lost that customer. Studies show that fewer than 10% will navigate through to the second page. At that rate, you might as well be on page 20!
Thus, the first page of Google is the best for any marketer or business. The long-term strategy employed to get your website to the first page is called SEO. Today’s Local Media will perform all the necessary research on your company before coming up with a specific strategy, including:
- Researching your industry
- Analyzing your competition
- Assessing your current website
- Reviewing your company’s presence on social media platforms
- Personalize each campaign with your brand, message, and/or offer
- Utilize analytics to determine which keywords, negative keywords, and geographic areas promise the best ROI
For SEO to be effective, we must understand your business, brand, goals, and direction of your company. With thousands of people searching online for roofing services in your area at any given time, you need to be accessible to them. That means you must be easily found on the major search engines. When done correctly and methodically, SEO will help your business display at the top of those results.
Your SEM strategy will yield quicker results in general, thanks to things like paid inclusion, traditional ads and PPC. No marketing campaign is complete with just either SEO or SEM. Both must work in tandem to get you the most robust results possible.
Mobile Optimized Websites for Roofers
Mobile is everything these days. Your customers are finicky – they change their minds and they’re on the go. They don’t want to be held down to a desktop or even a laptop anymore. Making sure your website is mobile optimized is critical in the effort to capture mobile customers.
Even though six out of the seven billion people on Earth own a mobile phone, many websites still aren’t designed to accommodate different screen sizes and load times. Mobile optimization incorporates everything from site design to site structure to page speed to ensure you’re not inadvertently turning mobile visitors away.
Increasing traffic to your website means it can be navigated properly and easily. With one-quarter of web searches world-wide being made on a mobile device by more than one billion users, a big part of this process involves visualizing that your users are on their smartphones at the grocery store, on their way to work, watching TV, and at the park with their kids.
If they want product information on the roofing materials you use, your contact information to ask for a free estimate, or the type of residential roofing you offer, you want them to be able to achieve their goals quickly without having to look hard for the information.
At Today’s Local Media, we develop custom websites so your business will stand out amongst your competitors. Our process is collaborative and is based on what you need us to design and develop. We want to listen to you first. Then, we will craft a beautiful custom-made website that looks pixel-perfect on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices – even across different operating systems like Android and iOS.
