SEM for your business website

SEM for your business website

You have heard us talk a lot about SEO (search engine optimization). However, there is another acronym you may have heard called SEM.

What is SEM?

SEM stands for “Search Engine Marketing”.

Where SEO is focused 100% on optimizing your website to rank high on SERPs (search engine result pages), SEM is about generating traffic and brand visibility through organic and PPC (pay per click) campaigns.

You can think of SEM as the umbrella that SEO and PPC campaigns fall under.

Benefits of an SEM mindset

While SEO should never be neglected, it is a piece of the SEM puzzle. The PPC element will help the speed at which your site can rank higher on search results.

Search engines like Google place PPC ads above organic search results. Meaning you can pay to have your ad potentially seen above highly ranked organic results. A huge benefit for new websites, looking to dramatically increase their brand awareness.

Focusing solely on SEO is a great place to start when you have a limited (or non-existent) advertising budget. You won’t necessarily see a dramatic return on investment quickly, as SEO takes months and sometimes years based on competition in the space.

However, if you have a consistent advertising budget, the ability to launch landing pages, and can manage a Google ads account - PPC is a great way to bring exposure to your amazing products and services.

If you are considering leveling up your SEO to SEM and are looking for assistance in getting started please let us know, we would love to speak with you about your goals and how we can help!
