What You Lose by Not SEOing Your Web Site

December 12, 2019

podcast-twitter-beasley.jpgIf Google can’t find you, you lose low-hanging fruit; you lose the easier conversions.  Marketing expenses are too high, salespeople can’t make quota and the sales forecast fails to predict the future.  And all of this is a result of a website that fails in its mission of finding marketing qualified leads. 

Today’s guest on WVU Marketing Communications Today is Laurie Beasley, co-founder, and president of Beasley Direct and Online Marketing, Inc. She and host, Cyndi Greenglass, will be discussing search engine optimization (SEO) best practices and challenges, including what prompts an SEO audit.

After the break, they will dive deeper into Google rankings and what web development teams need to know to get it right, as well as the new requirement for newly registered domains to have mobile-first designed pages.
