* Good content. You’ll want to populate your website (likely through a blog) with detailed, helpful and ACTIONABLE content. Aim to have articles that are 2,000+ words and dive deep into the subject matter. Use data-points whenever you can. Avoid speaking to a broad audience. Speak to specific niches within your vertical.
* Inbound Links. Links pointing to your website are still the strongest method of getting the most bang-for-your-buck with SEO. Links single to Google that people find your site useful and valuable. You can have the best content in the world but if you don’t have links, your content means nothing.
* Build a social media audience. Many of the top websites see 40%+ of their visitors come from social platforms. Start with one (the best one will tend to be Facebook but may not be) and build it up and then start on another.
