This is by far the best page builder for WordPress. We will create you a template but also teach you how to add new pages to your website.
SEO Content writing
Compelling content writing is so important! Having a great website design is a major factor but the words give the greater picture of you and your products and services. Developing research-driven content based on key areas of your business to give the greatest results. Sarah is our professional journalist if you do not have the time or inclination to write wordy articles, we can help.
Even if you are great at English. Do you know how to write technically for search engines? Correct spelling and grammar are checked by search engines and this helps determine your rank. There should be no compromise when writing the text for your clients and search engines.
Did you know? only use your keywords and phrases in six percent of the total text! Do not spam search engines they do not like it!
What is Keyword Dilution? Selling two products on one page. Do not sell apples and oranges on the same page. Who searches for “apples and oranges” at the same time? Only sell one product or service on one product landing page
