If you’re not on the first page or two of Google, in the minds of your prospects, your business might as well be invisible. But although improving your search engine ranking can potentially increase your conversions and sales, it is a long-term strategy and the results won’t be visible overnight.

If you’re not getting the results you’re expecting from your marketing campaigns, the fault may not lie with your salespeople’s ambition and determination to close the deal — it may lie in the programs you’re using to help you.
