There are quite a few keyword research tools available. We’d love to only use Google’s Free keyword tool, but we’ve come to realize that Google no longer provides accurate, in depth information. Their results are more like averages.
We can’t work with averages when we want detailed, accurate data to begin a marketing process, so we rely on exterior tools that give us the results we want.
Our Keyword Research Kit Includes 3 Tools
We’ve got a structured process for the depth at which we do keyword research.
It all depends on the campaign and the objectives. We target keywords based on the customer avatars we’ve created and then build out content to attract leads to our web properties.
We’ve established we have a good business idea. There is demand for the product/service we want to provide.
We’ve done our keyword research and now want to get the business started.
The first step to get started, is deciding on a business name.
You can actually do a domain search, then see if you can use the domain name as your business name. It’s not necessary, but makes life simpler.
You can’t run a business until you’ve registered it. We’ve linked to places where you can do all of that and also where you can get legal documentation for your site and copyright protection for the content you place online.
Wherever you host your website or if you’re launching a new one, we can help. We primarily work with WordPress and help you create your business from scratch, with nothing more than an idea.
It’s a lot of work, but it can be so, so rewarding.
There’s three options for you to choose from. It depends on your level of patience really. I say, use one platform, get everything you need setup and working in the least ammount of time.
I’m linking you to my best recommendation below.
Register A Domain & Install WordPress
If you’ve got your domain name in mind, then click through to one of our preferred partners below and get it registered.
As soon as it’s registered, install WordPress on it. (Normally as easy as 1-click to install). First Time installing WordPress? See this Blog post for step by step instructions.
Time To Build Your Site
I trust you’re familiar with WordPress and installing it. If not, I suggest you go read my Blog Post, that shows you how.
Once you’ve got WordPress installed and ready to work, it’s time to get a theme installed.
I’m linking to my preferred resource for themes and plugins to start off with.
Choose A Theme Provider
I’ve used multiple Theme Providers over the years. I only recommend the ones that you will get the most benefit from.
All, of these suppliers are great at supporting, and answering any questions you have about your theme.
Content creation is where a lot of people get stuck.
We understand that it can be hard to run your business, manage staff, inventory and who knows how much else.
