Search Engine Optimization WORKS and now School Empower has all the proof we need. In August we created a website for a studio (we can't mention names yet!) who never had a website, but realized it was time step up their game and be part of the digital world.
The new site launched in late August, just in time for new class registration. Early in September the studio called and reported that she was not yet showing up in Google results when she typed in her keywords. New born websites do not usually show up in Google for 4-6 weeks. So I gave her the following advice:
- Blog as much as you can and enter your key words in the KEY WORD TAB in your blog post.
- Go into all your pages, and enter your key words on the KEY WORD TAB.
THIS IS THE ADMIN PANEL WHERE YOU ENTER KEY WORDS
3. Keep posting your key words (dance classes in CITY NAME, STATE) on Facebook and most importantly...
4. Video tape as much as you can--use your smart phone, upload to YOUTUBE and FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS! Google owns YOU TUBE and loves having YouTube videos. Because School Empower websites come with easy to add unlimited video sections this is a MAJOR plus for Search Engine Optimization.
I always like to keep in touch with the studios we design for and last night I did a search for this studio and noticed she was on PAGE ONE of Google for not only her studio name, but important key words, like "dance class, CITY, STATE." So, I wrote her a quick note and lo and behold, here was her response:
RESPONSE FROM STUDIO
"Yes Lori!!!! We are so excited! I've been meaning to let you know that.
But something else- on Wednesday I received a call from a casting agent from Americas Got Talent, she saw our dance videos online and selected one particular dance of mine that I choreographed and wants me to submit a cut of it so she can give to producers for us to possibly be cast on the show for this upcoming season! She loved my choreography and wanted me to send one more piece so that's why I'm up now mixing music and editing so I can send thugs to her Monday!
I believe it's because of all of the hits and videos they way you told me to list them like you said and that is why we popped up when she was searching. I firmly believe that. So thank you for all your help"!
YOUR STUDIO CAN BE NEXT!
Unfortunately, I can't share with you all exactly WHO that studio was until they find out for sure, but regardless, HOLLYWOOD CALLED...all because she got a new website and followed School Empower strategies! Our dance studio websites start at $600. While we can't promise America's Got Talent, We CAN promise great design and great search engine results.
What can I say but we are SOOOO excited and hope that our studio gets on AMERICA'S GOT TALENT!
Now, even if she doesn't make it, think of the amazing publicity and credibility she now has for studio, in addition to the great results in for students looking for her school.
I just wanted to share this amazing news with everyone because it is our SUCCESS STORY TOO!
CLICK HERE TO SAVE $100 on your brand new studio website! One that can help YOU get discovered-- by your students, and just MAYBE America's Got Talent!**
