February 2019 Newsletter

Keyword Research Demystified, Success Story #1 — February 2019 Newsletter

One of our new year’s resolutions at Statcounter for 2019 is to actively help our members be more successful online. In this new monthly newsletter, we will feature stories from other Statcounter members on their business and processes, advice on digital marketing, how to get the most out of Statcounter and more. Whether you’re a small business or team of one doing your own marketing or an agency helping your clients grow, we hope there’ll be something valuable to take away each month.

This month, we have the first in a series of Success Stories where we talk to Statcounter members about their business. And a guide to doing Keyword Research to attract the most qualified visitors to your website.

As always, we value your feedback. Respond in the comments to let us know any ways we can improve.
