The Next "Bing" Thing for Resume Writers
You've probably seen and heard more about the Bing search engine over the past few months. They're really taking a run at Google, and while they're still well behind the world's #1 search engine, it can be worthwhile for your resume writing business to optimize your presence on Bing. It will only take about an hour or so, and you may see a significant increase in traffic to your website and social media profiles as a result.
Did you know that some mobile devices default to "Bing" for search? If you didn't, you probably also need to know that Bing is the fastest growing search engine and if you're not using it to its full advantage to promote your resume writing business, you may be missing out.
With Bing Webmaster Tools, you can optimize your website. With Bing Ads, you can ensure that your customers find your resume writing business website. If you want to be found locally, ensure that you claim your business on Bing Business Portal. It's free to get started. Simply go to http://www.bing.com/businessportal and follow the easy instructions provided.
Due to the proliferation of Bing search, if you've not done this yet, you're not taking advantage of every opportunity to promote your business. As mentioned before, Bing is the default search on many mobile browsers now — due to that fact alone it is going to grow fast. Your business needs to be where the action is and today the action is with local search.
You can then make your profile super attractive by including photos, logos, and keyword-rich content. In the Bing Business Portal you can create a complete listing, ensuring to use keywords that will attract your target audience, and also offer deals to help you get more clients and/or customers.
