Reasons to SEO your site

Of all the reasons why SEO should be part of your internet marketing plan, the fact that it works should be top of the list. But there are other reasons why you should seriously consider getting the right firm, a good firm, to manage the SEO for your site.
1. SEO will not go away. Yes, the algorithms change and people adapt. But the inherent benefits are still important – being on the first page of results will get your site more traffic, and if you convert, more dollars will accrue to your top line. Good SEOS know what is working now, and how those tactics can help your business prosper. Sitting back and waiting for a miracle won’t work…you have to be proactive.
2. If you ignore SEO, you are letting your competition have business without putting up a fight at all. The businesses at the top of search results get the majority of the traffic, and business. Doing nothing is no longer an option as more and more business is being transacted on the web versus legacy methods such as the yellow pages, newspaper ads and magazine ads. Your competition wants the top spots, is ready, willing and able to do what it takes to get there and stay there. And you are doing what?
3. Did you know that mobile traffic will overtake desktop traffic in 2014? Is your business ready to transact business over mobile devices? A phone call, a visit to your store, or a purchase can all begin with a mobile search. Make sure you are ready for this with a responsive site that is easy to navigate and read on all devices. And make sure your site is found on mobile searches with SEO that is optimized for local searches as well.

The Best Chicago SEO Firm

Say you have a business that’s been doing all right for the past few years, despite the economy. But you know there is business out there that you are missing out on…business that your competitors seem to have the inside edge on. You have a website…it’s producing some leads and some sales, but you know it could be better.

Have you had a site audit? By that we mean, has someone looked at your site to make sure you are getting everything you can out of it? Is it optimized for search on page? Are your links relevant and robust? Do you have a social presence that is working for you instead of you working for it? Are you showing up for the right keyword terms that your customers would use to find you? If so, or if not, where are you missing out that your competitors are filling the void?

Perhaps you need help in determining the answers to the above questions. If so, you’ll want to call a Chicago SEO Expert. An expert can give you these answers plus a little insight on what your competition is doing and how to beat them.

We often ask our customers ‘what would it be worth to you to increase your search traffic by just one term by four or 5 times’? Of course that depends on the business the customer is in…to a lawyer it may mean a difference of $100,000 per month for just one call from a potential client that has a personal injury caused by negligence. For a doctor, it can mean two or three rhinoplasty surgeries a month or $25,000 or more. To a roofer, it might mean six roofing jobs at $10,000 a piece. And that’s every single month of the year.

SEO works for you 24/7/365. And the best SEOs also work 24/7/365. When you are getting four or five times the business you did last month, isn’t it worth investigating what a really good SEO can do for you?

Spray Foam Insulation for Chicago Homes

Winter is definitely here. It’s had a grip on the Chicagoland area since mid-November and hasn’tfoam insulation let up. With the frigid temperatures we have experienced…-15 F. and below in some cases, you may have noticed that your home has felt cold in spots and drafty in others. We noticed that there was air leakage by our electrical outlets which we hadn’t noticed in previous winters.
After a while, batt and blown-in insulation loses its loft, and may sag in wall cavities. So if your home is more than 15 years old, you probably need to address your home’s insulation situation.
The best insulation in terms of R-value and efficiency is open or closed cell spray foam insulation. Spray foam creates a sealed barrier between the inside of your home and the elements protecting you from air movement (drafts), dampness penetration (moisture barrier) and cold or heat (thermal envelope). It is applied with a spray gun and the foam expands in the cavity filling all gaps and voids so there is no leakage of air, vapor or loss of temperature.

The above photo and video shows how easy and efficient the spray foam process is. For best results, a professional should be used to apply the foam. Even older homes can benefit from spray foam insulation
to seal up the cracks and crevices that settling causes over time. For more information on spray foam including foam insulation costs, follow this link for more videos, photos and facts.
