  10. 10. The 3-Steps To Using “The Ski Slope Strategy” There are three steps to execute The Ski Slope Strategy successfully. Step 1: Build topic clusters to get new organic traffic. Step 2: Run quarterly marketing promotions to get new leads. Step 3: Promote case studies to convert traffic and leads into new customers.
  11. 11. Step 1: Build Topic Clusters To Get New Organic Traffic Green Circle Content Green Circle Content is the content you use to drive consistent, compounding traffic that gets new prospects aware of your business. Here’s how to do it:
  12. 12. Use two simple criteria to decide which topics to make into Pillar pages:  Any search term with 1,000 or more monthly search volume. This is not a hard number, just a number I chose to make it worthwhile investing time into building my Pillar page, and a topic cluster around it. Anything less than 1,000 and you may find it hard to find subtopics with search volume.  Any topic with a high likeliness to convert. I give every topic on my list a “likeliness to convert” rating (high, medium or low). I’m not going to live forever, so I only want to invest my time writing about topics where I know those readers will have a high likelihood to be interested in what we sell.
  13. 13. Simply typed “ecommerce a”, “ecommerce b”, “ecommerce c”, etc into Google and added relevant topics to make list.
  14. 14. Example of Final Keywords prioritized by how likely they are to convert
