Keyword research is THE most important part of an effective SEO strategy

Keyword research can make or break your entire SEO campaign.


This is because SEO keyword research impacts every other SEO task that you perform, including creating content, on-page SEO, and getting backlinks.


Targeting the right keywords determines how fast you’ll get traffic, leads, and sales.


Here’s the problem:


If you talk to most marketing agencies, they only focus on vanity metrics like search volume. Sure, with enough traffic, potential customers will eventually buy your product. But it will take a lot longer.


Here’s how most agencies rank content (and why it’s a slower growth ramp):

  1. Create a list of keywords. How do these agencies come up with this list? Usually, they will use Google Keyword Planner, an SEO tool like Ahrefs or SEMrush, or see what keywords your competition ranks for. In other words, they’re competing for the same keywords as everyone else.
  2. Identify search volume. The estimated search volume will range greatly from one source to another. I’ve seen one specific keyword give an estimate of 6,500, 12,000, and 49,500 visitors per month. And that doesn’t even count long-tail keywords.
  3. Find low-competition search terms. The SEO team then looks for keywords that aren’t super competitive. This allows them to rank your content in Google’s search engine results page (SERP). Sure, getting traffic faster is nice. We do that too. But what you really want is more customers.


A volume-based keyword strategy for content marketing is backward. It’s much better to focus on relevant keywords.


Here’s the thing:


Rarely do high volume keywords also produce high volume conversion rates. 


That’s because these top of funnel keywords have a low purchase intent. This is often why content and SEO agencies will tell you it takes 6-12 months to start getting “results.” 


Yes, a successful SEO campaign takes time to reach its max potential. The primary problem is that most marketing agencies do not focus on keywords most likely to convert.


To get you customers faster, Growth Ramp’s content go-to-market strategy works like this:


  1. Market research. We talk to your customers to find growth opportunities you can’t find using a keyword research tool.
  2. Brand positioning. Once we learn why your customers love your product, we’ll work with you to differentiate you from the competition.
  3. Keyword analysis. To share your brand position at scale, we target bottom-of-the-funnel keywords. Since we also estimate your market size by doing market research, we can prioritize what content is most likely to bring you more customers today. With our proprietary system, we can get organic traffic in a week on a new website.


PSST! Do you have someone doing PPC? Our keyword research will help your ads team also get new customers sooner.

There are 100 ways to grow a startup. But without a clear go-to-market strategy, you will soon find yourself in marketing tactical hell.

Several marketing agencies can do content marketing and SEO. But just like not all programmers code the same, so too not all marketers write the same.

They say it takes 6-12 months for content marketing and SEO to "start working." Here’s the problem. When you ask most content and digital marketing agencies what results you can expect after 6-12 months, they dance around the question.

“This was a huge weight off my shoulders...”

Before we started with Growth Ramp, we had no idea who our target customer was. Marketing has been a frustrating process for us at Decibite.

Growth Ramp interviewed our customers, did market research, showed us where we were, and who we wanted to help. They then executed on the strategy to capitalize and appeal to that market. This was a huge game-changer. Growth Ramp did everything that we were wanting to do and more. This was a huge weight off my shoulders and helped me avoid burnout.

They got us back on track and their efforts have pushed us further in one month than a year on our own. Seriously, I wish there were six of you.
