If you build it, they will come. This thinking may have worked in “Field of Dreams,” but that’s not how it works for construction websites. You need more than a page that looks great – you need to know how to drive traffic to your website. Let us show you how.

Why is it important to optimize your website to drive more traffic?

Having your site optimized with SEO will not only increase traffic for your construction website, it will ultimately increase the number of qualified leads you receive.

“Optimizing construction websites will allow them to offer content that’s specifically for a certain audience and their needs,” said Mike Stein, web optimization specialist. “Additionally, having a fully optimized site will allow for site users to have a much more pleasant experience. Our customers’ websites will be faster, include more internal linking to assist with site navigation, provide relevant content and allow higher media quality.”

What tactics can you use to drive traffic to your construction website?

Landing qualified leads is easy when you know how to drive traffic to your website. Make sure your construction website is set up for success by using these strategies.

  1. Take advantage of on-page SEO methods: Optimize your website content for search engines and cater to the interests of your target audiences. This includes using tactics such as keywords, alt-text, internal linking and writing meta data.
  2. Upload quality content to your site regularly: Make sure that any written content on your website is engaging, informative and beneficial for the reader. If your content offers value to your readers, they are more likely to engage, share or reach out for a project consultation.
  3. Use your social media channels to promote your business: Using social media costs you nothing, and it’s a channel anyone can use with very little digital marketing experience. Implementing apps such as Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn will help to catch the eyes of potential clients and send them back to your website.
