For millions of Americans, summer is the best time to move, the kids are out of school, the weather is nice, and the home buying season is at its peak. “In fact, 11 to 13 percent of all moves occur during summer months as compared to eight percent or less during the other months of the year.” Some people are moving across the city, some across the state. Others across the country and more people are moving across the world.
Below you will find some tips and advice on how to grow your moving business.

Create a video to highlight your moving services. Make sure each page is optimized. All these things are keys to designing a effective website.

Use Search Engine Marketing
Drive traffic to your website through paid efforts and organic search engine optimization. Search engine marketing is one of the most effective ways to get eyeballs on your business.

Use Retargeting Ads
No matter how well put together your website or ad is, some people will not convert the first time they visit your site. One way to counter this to retarget them. Retargeting is also known as
remarketing. It’s a way of keeping your brand in front of visitors to your site. For example, if a visitor visits your site and leaves, the retargeting ad appears to them at their next destination based on their previous action.
