But how are you going to pay for this technology today, particularly if it’s not in your budget?

I wanted to share with you what your peers have told me about justifying the expenditure and still remaining on budget:

With Paid and Natural Explorer, one of Conductor’s basic features, they were able to quickly see keywords where they had a double presence: they were spending on paid search for keywords and they also ranked very strongly for in organic/unpaid search.

They reduce their paid search spend on keywords they are already visible for in organic search. If they turn off their ad spend for these terms, they are still visible to searching customers.

They then reallocate those funds to:

  1. Purchase a content and SEO platform like Conductor Searchlight so they can find these opportunities
  2. Buy ads for keywords where they did not rank well, increasing their net impact

In this way, they maximize the effectiveness of every dollar spent.
