It is essential that you reassess your SEO plan on a regular basis. Trends, search engine algorithms and your business’ needs and goals are always changing. Identify what your current traffic and sales goals are and make sure your SEO plans are in alignment and will help you succeed.

Look at things like keywords, content plans, on site optimisation and other factors and determine whether each part of your strategy is working to its fullest potential.

Do Something New with Social Media

Are you stuck in a social media rut? If you have found yourself posting the same kind of content over and over and if your audience isn’t growing or engaged, it’s time to try something new. You can rethink your strategy entirely or you can just run some special summer campaigns.

Holding contests, offering discounts, adopting a hashtag or using a specific theme can help you breathe new life into your social media marketing.

Clean up Your Website

Over time, business’ websites can become cluttered and lose focus. You’ve probably added pages, buttons, images and forms over the past several months, or even years, and your site could be overwhelming and confusing to visitors.

This summer, take some time to clean up your website. Remove clutter and pages you don’t need anymore and make sure things are clear and streamlined so people will respond to your calls to action.

Now is also a good time to make sure your site is fully optimised for search engine optimisation so your pages will get higher rankings. Some things to look at include keyword use, conversion rate, site speed and how easy it is for search engines to read and rank your pages.

Plan Upcoming Ad Campaigns

This summer is also a good time to look forward and start to plan some ad campaigns. Pay per click and search ads can help you promote your business and drive traffic to your website. For these campaigns to be successful, you need to strategically plan your keywords, the sites you use and ad copy to attract and target your key markets. If you start planning now, you’ll be ready to launch effective ad campaigns that can help you increase your sales and have a strong finish to the year.
