Feature on Google Search

When it comes to marketing your business online, there are many questions you may have. Two of the most common questions may be:

  1. With so many ways to market online these days, how do I maximize my budget by spending it wisely on an effective campaign?
  2. With millions of users on the Internet every day, how do I get the important ones to come to my site, and not spend my marketing budget on traffic that won’t convert to new business?

Web Devine provides the perfect range of online marketing services that are designed to get more money and more customers to your business. We know how important visitors are to your website. We know that a pretty website is just a pretty website – to make money from it, you need traffic. And not any kind of traffic, TARGETED TRAFFIC!

So how does a website usually get traffic anyway? Great question! On average 15% of the traffic that gets to your website is direct, meaning that a user simply types the web address directly in their browser (www.yourcompanyname.co.za); 5% originate from others linking to your site, and about 80% comes from search engines!

Though we can assist you with many aspects of online marketing, our main focus and pride is Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Pay-Per-Click advertising.

What is the difference?

Organic listings are results of Google’s, and other search engines, secret algorithms. Their goal is to display the most relevant results. Our goal with search engine optimization is to prove to Google that your site is the most relevant for specific keywords, and have it show up on page 1 (as most people don’t go past the first page).

The results labeled ‘Pay Per Click Ads’ are paid-for listings, also known as sponsored results. With a properly strategized and optimized Pay-Per-Click campaign, your website will show up here in as fast as 15 minutes! The difference here is that with Pay-Per-Click, you will be paying a fee for every visitor that comes to your website. With SEO, you do not pay for each individual visitor.

PPC In a Nutshell

Pros:

  • Pay-per-click is a great way to quickly get targeted visitors to your website. We can easily start, stop, pause or adjust your campaign. The budget for PPC is also flexible – you decide how much you want to spend.
  • Pay Per Click guarantees traffic from very specific key terms. You are guaranteed to get exactly what you pay for, clicks from specific keywords.
  • Through GeoTargeting, you can market to a closely-targeted market, as specific as marketing to those within a 16-kilometer radius from your business.

Cons:

  • It can be an expensive way of advertising. Depending on your competition, you could be paying as little as R1.50 for every visitor or as much as R80, or even more.
  • Only about 20% of people click on sponsored results, the rest use the organic area, as they know it produces more relevant results.
  • Capturing a significant amount of traffic for a single competitive keyword can cost thousands of rands per day, for a single keyword, on Google alone.
SEO In a Nutshell

Pros:

  • Usually is by far the best return on investment compared to any online or offline marketing campaign.
  • You don’t pay for each visitor and top positions for competitive keywords could bring in tens of thousands of people to your website, regularly.
  • Many more people search organic listings than paid advertisements (80% organic vs. 20% sponsored)
  • High rankings on Google lend credibility to your website/business. If you rank higher than your competitors on Google, users tend to think that you must have a superior product/service, as people intuitively trust Google.

Cons:

  • Takes time, about 2-3 months, to see tangible results. Over-optimization could get your site blacklisted by the search engines.
  • Not all websites are search engine friendly, meaning they may not have the characteristics which enable SEO techniques to work effectively.
