In this episode of B2B Nation, we talk with Eli Schwartz, a growth advisor, SEO expert and author of the best-selling book Product-Led SEO, about his approach to search engine optimization and digital marketing.
The concept of product-led SEO is a significant departure from a lot of the books and advice focused on organic marketing. Unlike content-led SEO, which focuses on keyphrases and content creation, product-led SEO begins with the idea of the product and experience your business wants to offer to its customers.
Eli says if there’s one thing he wants marketers to learn from his book, it’s that SEO needs to be treated like any other marketing channel. It should be judged by its return on investment. And if the effort your organization puts into SEO isn’t leading to an increase in sales, then it’s not a tactic worthy of your resources.
