Our website is almost done. but I have no idea how to do SEO and marketing things. first of all, I should get the SEO done, right? I have google some SEO company. they charge like over $800 per month which is kind of higher then my budget because I just get started and so many placed need to have budget on it. 

I have asked one of my friend. He told me that I can do the SEO by myself. but I dont know anything about the coding. is it the same way to do SEO on shopify and on wordpress? I feel so headache. 

Please please share with me your SEO exprience and kindly give me some suggestions. highly appreciate!

Hi Biru,

I get a lot of SEO questions, and my single best tip still boils down to this: make awesome products, create awesome content, and make it as easy as possible for people to share those products and content.

Shopify's already built from the ground up with SEO in mind - your shop can be easily read and understood by search engines. The challenge in getting a great search ranking isn't in being found by Google, it's in convincing Google that your site deserves to be #1 on a given topic.

I strongly recommend doing your homework before diving into SEO because there's a great deal of misinformation out there. Check out the links below for more info - some of them are lengthy reads but the content is solid gold.

Hello Biru,

Alicia is correct...  try to put together good unique content and you will be fine. 

I would also say to start out with doing alot of social media then you can advance to doing some paid marketing when ready. Also if you're going to be adding new products each month you should work to get your email marketing going so you can let interested customers know about your new products. 

Once you get your store live we would be happy to review and give you some tips!

Happy Selling!

Hi Biru, Leon from the community here

My response to this   SEO & Marketing.

SEO will  only have your business found in the search engines and does not help the business build the value proposition or the sale

Yes you can achieve this yourself but this can be a short term solutions if funds are a problem.

My suggestion would to have a qualified SEO  person that has a track recorded and would be willing work with in your budget to find the correct correct keywords also optimize the site.

On  the other hand Marketing ...

should be approached completely separate and should not be included in the  SEO tasks.

locate a proficient marketing person that you can consult and strategies  with

80% of  your business is marketing 20% Is the business itself

(no customers =  no sales = no revenue ).

if you need any help with the above please feel free to give me a shout.

Leon
