- Key Words FIRST - List your key words and key word phrases that are the solutions your prospects' SEARCH online. ie: green building renovation, energy efficient commercial windows, historical building renovation, green plumbing, sustainable development incentives, green construction Boston. Then rank them for the most value to your key prospects. TIP: Multiple words (2-4) give you the most targeted search results.
- Use Your Key Words - Use your most important key words as subheads in your 600 word description. And start each paragraph with a keyword phrase. Think like your prospect. What do they search for? What credibility information can you provide to entice them to link to your website...or better yet, pick up the phone and call you?
- Write a Compelling Story - A testimonial is a powerful thing! A list of specific applications your provide are also very compelling. And so are awards, certifications, and successfully completed projects that are recognizable. Keep the bragging words out of your story. Show results. List your top strengths.
