Increasing your Tree Services online presence

Website Basics-Start with all fundamental SEO best practices. Proper Alt Tags on images,  H1, H2, H3 tags used correctly, Meta information up to date, no pages that are gone.
Many tree service websites will use letters within their phone number. This prevents mobile users from being able to tap to call your phone.

Video Marketing-YouTube is the second most searched site on the internet, right behind Google.  Shooting video or takings pictures of your work can be huge for video marketing.  Setting up a YouTube channel and properly adding titles and descriptions to videos can have an impact.
You could probably even have your kid do the video editing.  No fancy software is necessary, a simple program like Windows Movie Maker can do the trick.
