Use Search Engine Optimization strategies to help users find you on the internet.When you walk into a grocery or department store you notice that the isle end-caps are configured to appeal to the masses; strategically placed so that everyone who walks into the store will see them and often realize they need or want the item. This is true of the online world as well. Just because you have a website, does not mean that people will find it. There are strategies that can be put in place so that when people are looking for services, they will be directed to your website and similarly realize they need or want what you have to offer. Come learn with CTCI what you can do to optimize traffic flow to your website.
