Amidst the increasing rivalry to dominate SERPs, marketers are now in search of untapped ways to crack the top 10.
Namely, there is a spiking tendency in SEO to optimize content around brand names. And this comes with two main advantages.
First, many of the brand keywords have a significantly low keyword difficulty which means you have a good chance to come up to the first page of Google and garner your content sheer visibility.
And second, due to their popularity, brand keywords enjoy a massive search volume that can potentially be translated into some valuable traffic to your site.
While this could make a great keyword selection strategy to boost your blog content—as it already is for some businesses—I wouldn’t just reserve it for this purpose.
Instead, my idea is to harness the potential of this tactic in strives for a bigger objective.
Like to “steal” some of your competitors’ leads and funnel them in your direction.
You can create an amazing piece of content optimized around a target keyword of your competitor’s name and leverage their big audience to promote your brand.
This could take a form of a comparison article such as “Convertkit vs. Aweber” or adopt any other style you prefer. The crux here is to ensure that your content is well-optimized around your competitor’s brand name and is relevant enough to appear on the page if a person searches your competitor’s name.
Like with any new tactic you undertake, there will always be factors to hamper the odds of your success—here, it’s the search intent.
Most of the people searching for a particular brand name on Google have a specific intention, and in this case it’s reaching your competitor’s brand page.
However, I would argue that someone interested in the services or products offered by a certain brand, will be tempted to know how their selected brand compares to the audience. Maybe they’re paying too much? They aren’t getting the results they desire?
By tapping into this desire, you address a number of cognitive biases that all consumers suffer. People want to know they’re making the best decision, that the money or time they’re spending is well-spent, they’re averse to loss.
Show them that your product or service is the better option, and you’ve sowed the seed of doubt in their minds and potentially converted a competitor’s lead into your own.
As with anything in SEO, it will probably take some time before the results are tangible enough to notice. What does this mean for you?
The best time to implement this tactic was yesterday!
When this simple tactic plays out, it becomes a game-changing tactic that generates a wave of leads and expands your brand visibility at literally no cost.
