Award-Winning SEO/PPC Digital Marketing Agency Sees a 200% Increase In Demand For Its Training Courses

Award-Winning SEO/PPC Digital Marketing Agency Sees a 200% Increase In Demand For Its Training Courses

Insight, Uncategorised · February 25th, 2019

novi.digital reveals its list of 21 courses for 2019, providing expert training for businesses that want more out of Google

 

This year, novi.digital will be using its 10 years of experience to train clients in the latest insights on SEO/PPC. The company is a Google Premier Partner, an award given to only the most successful PPC agencies. The courses have grown in popularity, with attendees doubling each year since training began. 121 businesses were trained in 2018, with further growth predicted for 2019.

The company will be holding training courses throughout the year in Blackpool, Lancaster, Penrith and several locations in London. The London-based courses will take place in two business innovation hubs: Level 39 in Canary Wharf and TechHub, located near Liverpool Street. The first of these London courses begin in September, although courses in other locations have already begun.

The company also said in a statement that they can offer bespoke training sessions to clients across the UK. This service would suit those looking for a more personalised offering.

“If you want to keep your SEO and PPC in-house, then it’s often a good idea to make sure that your team has expert training to maximise the benefit,” said the agency.

Managing director Aaron Crewe explains how the agency operates. “Here at novi.digital, we’re always asking ‘what’s the end result?”. Basing their work on this question, they only focus on improving metrics that deliver a clear return.

They say it can be easy to lose sight of how you are creating value for your company, which novi.digital aims to simplify. They offer a range of courses “aimed at increasing the value of your SEO and PPC work”.

A variety of companies and organisations have attended previous events:

  • Chamber of Commerce
  • Yordas Group
  • Harrison Drury
  • Lancaster University
  • OpenSpace
  • Lake District Calvert Trust
  • WCF
  • English Lakes Hotels

One such event is ‘PPC 101’ on March 14th in Lancaster, where novi.digital have an office. In this course, participants will learn how best to improve their Google Ads campaigns. “This is an interactive one-day course that allows attendees to ask questions and collaborate”. This gives the clients a “hands-on approach” and allows them to start improving their campaigns immediately.

Alternatively, there is a range of courses to choose from including all aspects of PPC and SEO. Topics covered include:

  • Creating a Google Ads campaign with the maximum ROI
  • Technical SEO know how explained
  • How to know what keywords to target and why
  • Improving the conversion rates of your customers
  • Creating a better user experience for your customers
  • How to use data analysis to make better decisions
  • Managing a campaign effectively and reducing wasted spend
  • Why the highest ranking doesn’t always mean the highest return

Of course, some businesses will not yet be ready to take the plunge to manage their own campaigns. novi.digital explains that learning about SEO and PPC can actually help you manage an external agency. Educating the client is key to the rapid expansion the company is experiencing, Aaron explains.

“At novi.digital we firmly believe that we deliver better services when our clients understand the theory behind what we do and why we do it”

10 Key Strategies to Improve the Value of your Search Engine Optimisation

10 Key Strategies to Improve the Value of your Search Engine Optimisation

Uncategorised · February 25th, 2019

As one of the UK’s leading SEO and PPC agencies, we at novi.digital are always focused on innovating further and improving our services. This blog covers many of the key strategies novi.digital are utilising to help you have greater success with your SEO in 2019.

We explore:

  • The importance of user experience in 2019
  • Why SEO training is becoming more important
  • How we produce convincing SEO-friendly content
  • How to make the best use of your data in 2019
  • Why personalised SEO can help your business in 2019
  • How we optimise your site for mobile usage
  • Key technical SEO factors for 2019
  • The significance of optimising for voice search
  • Our combination of social media PPC and SEO
  • The value of local search as ‘near me’ searches rise

User experience and the Google playbook

At the end of 2018, Google published a document explaining the importance of easy-to-use websites in better engaging users. Like Google, we understand that the user experience is key in generating greater sales. Conversions can increase by optimising websites which creates a smoother user journey towards a sale.

That’s why our SEO work includes a clear focus on user experience. Increasing the engagement from each individual user. The work is also rewarded by Google with increased visibility for your website.

Training for your SEO in 2019

The average standard of SEO knowledge is continuing to rise. In 2019, it is likely to be increasingly helpful for businesses to refocus on their SEO to remain competitive. To meet this need, alongside our management services, we provide extra training for businesses.

We hold regular live events throughout the UK as well as tailor-made courses. As an award-winning industry leader, we are well placed to provide expert training for your team.

Producing great content is just as important for SEO in 2019

Websites that produce great SEO content are far more likely to engage their visitors and convert them into customers. But we know it can be time-consuming to create high-quality content for your site regularly.

To solve this problem, we developed a WordPress plugin called Synonymizer. The plugin allows us to create relevant and targeted content quickly. For example, the plugin allows a single piece of content to target a range of locations that your business serves. Supported by our team of experienced copywriters, we can produce in-depth and SEO-friendly content for your site.

GDPR highlights the value of user data

Data privacy laws like GDPR are continuing to produce big changes in how data is used and analysed. Google Analytics now keeps the website and user data for a shorter period of time. Yet, this data has become no less valuable.

That’s why we provide SEO reports and audits to help you break down your data more effectively. We’ll use that data to design a plan for you to make step-by-step improvements in your SEO for 2019.

In 2019, many companies need a more personalised SEO strategy

Many digital marketing agencies have a repetitive and singular process that they use with all their clients. We at novi.digital believe that a more personalised approach delivers better results.

Our bespoke and tailored packages are designed to focus on what is most relevant to your business. This approach helps to create more value unique to your company. You can read about the changes we’ve been able to create for our clients here.

Mobile continues to be the dominant medium for search

4 years ago, Google announced that mobile searches had overtaken desktop searches. But many websites are still not realising the critical importance of optimising your website for mobile. Optimising for mobile is not only a technical issue.

Learning how to turn your mobile visitors into customers requires an in-depth understanding of mobile behaviour. 70% of mobile searches lead to an action within an hour, which is why novi.digital places a heavy emphasis on making your site mobile-friendly with our psychology-focused approach.

Technical SEO factors to help you get ahead

  • Mobile: Google now prioritises mobile sites with mobile-first indexing. This means that the mobile version of your site is now considered by Google to be the most significant for SEO. With mobile being so crucial to a profitable SEO campaign, we don’t just focus on mobile behaviour. As the range of mobile devices continues to expand, technical compatibility for your site is key.

We design your site to be compatible with varying screen sizes and changes in resolution. We also focus on enhancing the readability and functionality of your mobile site.

  • Structured data: Helping Google to better understand your site is a key part of good technical SEO. There are now more opportunities than ever to get more of your site’s information onto Google. We can help you with this using structured data. This helps us to educate Google about what information is on your site. This can lead to a profitable feature on the search engine.

Recently, Google launched its Q and A structured data form. This allows a site to answer common questions about a topic which can lead to more engagement and conversions.

  • Page speed: Page speed improvements can often need a high level of technical expertise, which is why we recommend utilising novi.digital’s many years of experience. Page speed is not just an SEO factor for Google, it has a direct impact on your number of sales.

A 1-second delay in page response can result in a 7% reduction in conversions. This makes page speed once again a key focus for novi.digital in 2019.

Voice search is on the rise

Many businesses are unaware of just how fast voice search is growing. Google says that more than 20% of searches are already voice based. Google Assistant, Alexa and Siri are now mainstream methods of conducting a search. This is an opportune moment to optimise for voice search, and we can help you to future-proof your website content.

The impact of social media for SEO

Social media and SEO can often feel like separate entities. But at novi.digital, we use social media to complement our SEO work. Used together, social media and SEO create a more powerful marketing strategy. We can create a bespoke strategy for you that assesses which platforms would likely deliver the highest ROI for your company.

Optimising for local businesses in 2019

Local SEO has always been an important pillar of what we do at novi.digital. In 2019, the importance of local search for businesses is set to increase further. 82% of mobile shoppers now conduct ‘near me’ searches.

Being the most visible and attractive local option for a search can be highly lucrative. We’re experienced in personalising our SEO management to local businesses. You can read our independent client reviews here and about our achievements so far.

3 reasons why Blogging is Great for SEO and marketing in general.

3 reasons why Blogging is Great for SEO and marketing in general.

Insight, Uncategorised · November 26th, 2018

A great digital marketing and SEO strategy involves using a number of different approaches together to drive website traffic and sales. One of the most important elements of your marketing strategy should be blogging, and below we reveal the different reasons why:

1. Show your expertise

A blog enables you to position your business as an expert in the industry. You can write insightful, unique, and interesting content about topics relating to your products and services, as well as your sector on the whole. This is a great way to stand out from the competition, and it builds trust with consumers. You are empowering consumers with knowledge, which should result in them choosing your business.

2. It improves SEO

Any good SEO agency will tell you that blogging will boost your search engine ranking, and it does this in a number of different ways. This begins with incorporating keywords that will help boost your exposure. Plus, websites with a blog have more indexed pages. This is a vital factor in terms of SEO, as it means you have a great deal of content for search engines to crawl and index, which in turn makes your website more recognisable. As if that wasn’t enough, businesses with blogs are more often linked to by other sites.

Blog posts are sharable

People will share your blog posts on the likes of Twitter, Facebook, and other social media websites, giving your business greater exposure. It is all part of your bigger online picture. If you write something that is useful and unique, people will share it on social media, creating a snowball effect as their friends, family members and colleagues see it and share it. This all comes together to create more brand exposure.

3. It gives your company a voice

Last but not least, blogging is also beneficial for your digital marketing and SEO strategy because it gives your business a voice. It creates a place where you can share company initiatives beyond your site, comment on market trends or timely news topics, and talk about your new services or products. It lets the personality of your brand shine through, and shows people what you are all about.

5 SEO myths / SEO mistakes to dispel from your SEO strategy

5 SEO myths / SEO mistakes to dispel from your SEO strategy

Insight · November 16th, 2018

When it comes to building a successful SEO strategy, there are a lot of SEO myths on the internet, and it can be challenging to know what is the truth and what strategies will really work on your website. Here we’re going to dispel some of those myths to help you build a successful SEO strategy.

1. You don’t need an HTTPS encrypted site

SSL is the standard security technology for ensuring security between a web server and a browser. When you have an HTTPS encrypted website, you are offering security that information won’t be stolen from visitors to your site. Google places this very high on their list of priorities, so ensure you have an encrypted website.

2. Having more pages is better for SEO

In the past, SEO was about the right keywords in the right place to get more traffic. Many businesses thought that to grow traffic you would need more pages that had different keywords attached. This is no longer the case; Google now concentrates on the quality of the website rather than the number of pages you have.

3. SEO is free traffic

You can’t think of SEO as a free lead generator. If you want to get lots of traffic from organic searches then you need to invest a lot of time, expertise and resources into ranking high on search engines. One of the most cost-effective ways to do this is to hire an SEO consultancy.

4. All you need is a good website

Many business owners think that they only need to optimise their website for good ranking. However, to outrank your competitor’s websites you need to look into link-building, guest posts on other websites, and to optimise your Google My Business. You can also use social media to help Google to view your website as more relevant to particular searches.

5. More backlinks are better

One of the key activities of an SEO strategy is building backlinks. Therefore, business owners often think that more is better. This is far from the truth. Google will assign a valuation to the backlinks into your business and the combination of these valuations will contribute to your rank. Therefore, it’s better to get one high value backlink, than to get several poor backlinks.

Many of our customers use our services because they know we have the expertise to help them rank on Google, drive traffic to their website, and sell their products and services. Contact us if you want to find out more.
