Candyce Edelen speaks with Heather Lutze of Findability Group Internet Marketing.

Getting found by that audience becomes a challenge as competition for first page search engine results has risen dramatically. Many companies lose out because they they fail to market from their prospect’s perspective. The key to getting found by your desired customers is to go beyond search engine optimization (SEO) and optimize search keywords to align with the way they search. But how does this get done?
