Over the years, the internet has turned from a gateway of information to a wide digital marketplace where businesses and consumers meet. Marketing in the form of paid advertising and search engine optimization has become a global phenomenon. But with such a quick turn of events and faster rising competition levels, can SEO and SEM tools pave the way for easier money?

Keyword Research

Before, it was as simple as thinking of what a typical consumer would look for in a search engine. Such is the very concept of keywords. Now, you can’t simply use “cars” as an advertising search term. It has come down to “cheap rental cars in Arizona” or “Washington limousine services”, and even those generate too much competition.

There are keyword research tools that provide more than keywords when it comes to optimizing your website. KeywordSpy, for example, offers useful statistical data on keywords being used in paid advertising, organic listings, and affiliate marketing. Such information of course is not fool proof. It takes a great deal of analysis to choose useful keywords that would work for your marketing campaign based on the strategies that you choose to adopt.

Ad Copy and Website Content

There are a lot of available softwares online that can give you ideas on how to word your ad copy or your website’s text content. There are, however limitations to using them. Some services give you generic phrases that can be found in every other websites. Worse, they can give you the same phrases over and over again that won’t match your keywords at all.

Probably the best way of creating a good ad copy is researching on how the pros display their own. Usually connecting with their target market by using keywords with inventive “buy” lines is a great way to advertise your product. When it comes to your site’s content, having complete knowledge as to what you are selling and having the passion to for the trade will help you convey your products in words. Having a uniquely written content can be just powerful as having a generic praise-filled one.

The bottom line, there are no shortcuts to raking in all that green. SEO/ SEM tools are merely guides into providing you convenient and powerful information and ideas on how you can best promote your products and services. How you turn these data into creative and hopefully winning marketing strategies is of course for you to learn and discover.
