2. How to create remarkable content?

Creating remarkable content is the best thing you can do in your pursuit to get found online. Each page you create for your site is a new opportunity to rank well in search engines for a new keyword you want to get found for. And every webpage has the potential to draw in traffic from other sources like social media.

Think of it this way: a 20 page website has 20 more chances to draw traffic for different keywords. A 200 page website has ten times more chances to draw traffic.

Create Website Pages for your Core Site

You can go after some low-hanging fruit by creating fundamental website pages that are missing from your website. Here are some ideas:
  • About Us – Create a company overview page that explains your mission.
  • Product/Services – Create a new page for each product or service that your company offers; don’t just lump them all into one page.
  • Industries Served – Create a new page for each industry your product/service can help.
  • Resource Library – Create a page compiling links to the landing pages you create for each of your marketing offers.
  • Customer Testimonials – Create a page for customer quotes, case studies, and video testimonials so your prospects can see that you have happy customers.
  • Partners – If you have a partner program, list the partners you work with as its own page.
  • Management Team – Create a separate page for each member of your executive team with a brief biography, photo, and links to connect with them on social media sites.
  • Contact Us – Create a landing page containing a simple form where visitors can ask you a question.
