Being successful online means doing two things extremely well:

  1.  Driving customers online to your website
  2.  Converting website traffic into leads, sales, or in-store visits

In order to accomplish these two objectives, small business owners must craft a digital marketing strategy that reaches customers in the moments that matter most to them. Simply creating a website and hoping customers will find it, will not do. Finding out how your customers search, when they search, and on what device they search will be your most crucial step to date. That is why we here at MarketKeep have put together a list of tools that we think will help you.

SEO Tools every small business owner should have

By harnessing the power of Google Analytics you can use this tool for both online advertising & offline advertising.

Google Search Console Another completely free tool from Google, the Google Search Console (formerly known as Google Webmaster Tools) alerts you of errors on your website, provides you with key stats like keyword ranking, and the number of times your website appears in search results per keyword.
