Is Web Development a Marketing Strategy?:

Is web development a marketing strategy? Professionally no. But, partly yes, if keyword research-based strategy (SEO) is incorporated into the website development process.

Keyword research is the process of discovering and understanding the search terms or phrases that your potential customers are using to find your product or service.

By understanding what keywords your potential customers are searching for, you can create content that is relevant to their needs and more likely to be found by them.

Thus, by incorporating keywords into your website, you can improve its visibility in search engine results, which can lead to more traffic and conversions.

A website with more pop-ups and poor navigation will probably have a higher bounce rate, which will have an adverse effect on SEO performance and restrict the growth of organic visitors.

On the other end, many people have the misunderstanding that just because you build a website, it automatically equates to marketing to your target market.

The thing is, web development and marketing are two different entities and should be approached as such.

Web development involves creating a website from scratch, which can be done using different platforms such as WordPress, Wix, Shopify, Squarespace, Elementor, and more.

Marketing, on the other hand, involves promoting your product or service to your target market through various channels such as social media, email marketing, content marketing, SEO, and more.

This should be done in order to increase leads, sales, and brand awareness for businesses.

Overall, to maximize the long-term benefits of website development, a marketing strategy approach or perspective is highly required.
