Targeting Keywords for a Higher Conversion Rate

So far the month of May has been very busy at BlindMonkeyMedia. In our marketing efforts to gain a higher conversion rate we have stopped targeting general marketing and SEO keywords and begun our efforts to focus our attention on very target specific keywords for each corresponding page.

Our hard work has paid off.

Our number of online marketing services and our Quality SEO services inquiries have double even though our website traffic has decreased by 50%.

If we were a site making money off of Google Adwords for example we would have suffered greatly but since we offer an actual service this is exactly what we were loooking for.

The moral of the story is target the right keywords to gain targeted traffic to your website if you want to get a higher inquiry and conversion rate.

If it was not for all of ...

Bad Customer Service Makes for a Bad Company

In my last post, I wrote about our company wanting to do away with our physical office and using virtual offices around the world based on the location of our staff.

Well, I am very upset about the quality of service by all of the virtual office company I contacted.

I contacted about 6 virtual office providers and out of those none have yet replied to me.

Of those who contacted me, none have replied to my reply to them.

What the hell is this? How can a company expect to make money if they have such bad customer service and a crappy sales department?

My company is trying to give these people business and they don’t seem to care about it.
