Search engine optimization and its significance in marketing
Search engine optimization allows you to reach people organically. This means that the range does not have to be purchased for a fee. This is also directly the further advantage of search engine optimization. Every visitor, every click does not have to be bought individually. Search engine optimization is sustainable and present for months and even years.
Since we have a lot of questions about search engine optimization and how to write good SEO texts, I became aware at the beginning of the year that I should express myself in the form of a new book on this topic. This is where the most important findings from everyday agency life come together and of course all the experience and knowledge that should be conveyed to the SEO managers of the future, but also to employees in my company. Whoever implements all these tips reaches an estimated 100,000 visitors per month, with a set-up time of two to three years. So you can achieve top rankings in the search engine even without an expensive advertising agency.
Before we talk a lot around the bush, let’s just ask ourselves the question, which tips the book contains exactly? What advice and tricks are included? Here is an overview of the individual topics.

What is SEO and what is Search Engine Optimization?
Search engine optimization is the targeted processing of your own website or online shop to improve placement in the search results of search engines such as Google, Yandex or Bing.
Why SEO Optimization?
In marketing, a distinction is made between two forms of reach. On the one hand there is the organic range, on the other there is the paid range. Paid range has the advantage that it is immediately available, but also costs money with every single click. The disadvantage, for each new visitor of the website money must be invested again and again. Organic reach, on the other hand, is concerned with improving reach through “good” content. “Good” content is more often shared in social networks, it is better placed in search engines and therefore more often on the actual content. The great advantage of this placement is sustainable. Every month you get 1.000, 10.000 also 100.000 visitors. No new money has to be invested for this. The disadvantage of this organic range is that it takes some time to build. Otherwise it is not immediately available and needs experts, as well as a lot of capital for concept and production.
What is SEO optimized, or what to do with SEO?
Search engine optimized are all projects that deal with a structured structure of the individual articles, as well as with the use of meaningful and previously defined keywords. Keywords are words that are frequently entered by people when searching. For example, if you are active in make-up, you should include similar words in texts, but also in headings. Quality instead of quantity applies. This optimization method is called Onpage Optimization. In contrast, there is the offpage optimization. It deals to a large extent with backlinks.
How can you improve your ranking on Google?
The own placement in the search engine is improved by adapting the own web offer, no matter if internet page or online shop, to the competition. It is even better if your own website exceeds that of your competitors. The focus is on the diversity of the topics, but also on the depth of the topics.
A backlink is a link from another online portal to our website. The more other Internet pages refer to your own, the better it will be placed. The principle of quality instead of quantity applies here again. Better are 10 backlinks from renowned online magazine than 1,000 backlinks from dubious forums and dubious readers. Ultimately it is, as in real life, a person enters a bar, there are two ways. Either people talk about the person entering the bar or they don’t. The more people talk about a person, the more important he or she is felt to be. It’s the same with search engines. The more people talk about their site, the more important it is and the better it is placed.

The Social Book
Social media marketing is more complex than ever. There are more than two billion users on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and YouTube today. Any social media manager who knows how to address people and how to reach them is worth a lot in the company. Social media is the new instrument in marketing. No matter if Facebook Advertising, Group Marketing, Community Management, Instagram Stories, YouTube, SEO, or Influencer Marketing. The possibilities and means of social media expand month by month. The development of social networks is progressing and, of course, the complexity for individual social media managers is also increasing. “The Social Book” provides all the basics that beginners in the field of social media marketing need to be able to run successful campaigns. From practical agency experience, many conversations with customers and of course also concepts and strategies, for individual social media channels, or also more complex, cross-media influencers and advertising campaigns. More about “The Social Book”.
The Business Book
Becoming an entrepreneur is not difficult, but being an entrepreneur is very difficult. Already knew 9 of 10 startups failed in the first 5 years. When I am on the road during my lectures, this is often the first step to make it clear to the young entrepreneurs that every person around them has to fail if they want to survive as entrepreneurs themselves. The reality check for entrepreneurs is pretty brutal. Nobody remembers the pyramids that fell. Everything talks about those who are still standing. It’s the same with entrepreneurs. Failure knocks on the door faster than you’d expect. This book is the result of my experience as an entrepreneur, the lectures and the reflection of the audience. More about: The Business Book.
The Spinning Book
Contents Spinning is especially for those who like to work with data packages and big data a nice addition in the area of content marketing. In the second sentence it should be said that content spinning is definitely not for beginners. Contents Spinning requires a lot of practice, at least 15, 20, 30 projects. This means a lot of time investment in training (weeks and months). The topic should therefore only be approached by content managers who want to learn for themselves. Warning! Don’t use it for “SEO,” “sounds simple.” More about: The Spinning Book.
