What does content creation have to do with SEO? And why should you care?

Buckle up. This is a long one. But learning about our approach to SEO marketing could be the difference between a thriving and just a surviving design/build business. Whether you’re targeting a hyperlocal, regional, or national client base, adding regular and relevant content to your company’s website does two things. Of course, it increases the sheer number of keywords and activity on your site, thus improving your search engine rankings. But it also creates helpful resources for customers who are actively searching for information and services like yours. These customers will first see you as a helpful source — and then as a stand out choice to do business with.

This, in the marketing biz, is called inbound marketing. And it works. In fact, outbound leads — think emails and banner ads — have an 1.7% close rate on average while inbound leads have a 14.6% close rate (source: Search Engine Journal).


So, how exactly will Halstead Media work with you to implement a stellar inbound marketing approach?

First, we start with the keywords.
Core keyword selection is determined by search volume of individual keywords in your design/build business’s service area, conversations on what services you want to promote, industry research, and geographical phrases based on the business’s location as well as relevant household income/population data.

What else do we do when it comes to refining SEO keywords for your business?

  • We follow Google Algorithm Standards and are always on top of changes and trends.

  • We partner with MOZ for keyword monitoring, the SEO industry’s premiere tracking tool

  • We provide keyword performance reports to our clients every month.

Our techniques include off-page SEO as well (meta tags, alt tags, and more). Pieces of the SEO puzzle that less experienced firms ignore because it’s not as glamorous or consumer facing.

Next comes the star of the show: the content.

We can do all of the things above, and your website performance will increase. But will it reach its full potential? Not quite. That’s where a regular schedule of content publishing comes in. Think about it. More writing means more keywords for search engines to comb through. More content means more activity for search engines to recognize. And on the consumer side of things, more articles means your landscape design and build business emerges as an expert in your region and category.

That leads us to our biggest commitment and promise when it comes to our content-driven SEO strategy: Our writing puts humans first and search-engine robots second. Our content will always read naturally and flow conversationally ­— ensuring every piece is useful to your customers.


How do we approach creating such content for your site?

  • We write only original content for every client, every time.

  • All of our articles are first written by landscape/hardscape industry insiders and then edited by a professional writer to ensure quality of message and style.

  • Our articles are ghost-written, meaning they will always be written in your company’s unique voice and from your business’s perspective.

  • Each article targets a specific group of keywords and/or city to tap into SEO goals.

  • These articles also tend to attract a following outside of SEO rankings. Consumers will soon know to come to your business for information — building the kind of trust and lasting relationship that lead to sales.

What about the results?

Search algorithms are complicated beasts, and results can be slow at first. Depending on the age of the website and the existing content, our clients tend to see results in approximately 5-6 months. But once the new strategy starts gaining traction, there’s no stopping the traffic and the leads. And if your design/build company already has an effective SEO plan using content creation, we can help you ramp up your results by reaching out to our network of industry website editors. We can create guest posts on your business’s behalf for their sites — thus deepening your reach, your site’s external connections, and your business’s credibility.

So, are you done searching for an SEO partner? Because we’re ready to get to work for you.
