5 best ways to sell your business

Implement search engine optimization

To put things into perspective, Search Engine Optimization (A.K.A SEO), SEO is the process of improving your website to increase its visibility when people search for products or services related to your business on Google and other search engines. In essence, Search engines help people find what they’re looking for online, this is a free benefit for businesses.  

To give you a less technical explanation, this is how search engines work:

Search engines provide results for any search query a user enters. To do so, they survey and “understand” the vast network of websites that make up the web. They run a sophisticated algorithm that determines what results to display for each search query.

This could do a lot for your business, people conduct thousands of searches each day, including products and services. 

Create and verify your Google Business Profile

Your Google Business Profile (Google listing) is what allows your business to show up in Google results including your business name, services (need good SEO), Google Maps, etc. 

If you’re ranking on Google Maps, this means your business is basically promoting itself 24/7. Moreover, you can publish posts directly to your Google listing, this puts you right in front of your target audience (at a time when they have high intent) when you put up attractive promotions.

Create a landing page offer

Yes, a landing page, not a website. Websites generally contain a lot of information, which can get overwhelming. A website convinces people about an offer, instead of focusing primarily on the offer itself. On the other hand, a landing page is more driven. It focuses on a good offer and Call to Action, which can bear more results. 

Advantages of a landing page:

  1. It focuses on ONE goal, usually selling, or call to action.
  2. Minimal distractions on the page
  3. Messaging and design precisely matched the goal
