Gone are the days where you could have a flourishing business without an online presence. It’s estimated that 95% of consumers will make their purchases online by 2040, and 70% of consumers will do an online search before visiting a local shop. Both online and offline businesses need a great website and SEO to take full advantage of the potential traffic (foot or online) they can gain.
With so many online seo options available to help you capture the market, we wanted to focus on one of the more affordable online SEO tool platforms, What’s My SERP (WMS). WMS has a great toolkit available, and we will go through each one.
