Lynnfield, Mass. (May 1, 2009) – Investors Capital Corporation (ICC), the premier independent broker/dealer of Investors Capital Holdings, Ltd. (AMEX: ICH), is tops when it comes to Google. Search engine results for the search phrase “top independent broker dealers” and numerous others phrases rank Investors Capital Corporation in the top broker/dealer spot due to the firm’s recent focus on Search Engine Optimization (SEO). SEO is the process of improving the volume and quality of website traffic via organic (“natural”) search results.
“I’m extremely pleased with our in-house SEO initiative,” said Robert H. Foney, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Investors Capital.
The company has already seen an increase of over 100% in website leads since undertaking the project in late-February. ICC has also seen a marked increase in the quality of those leads.
“We’re working on a $2 million advisor who recently came through our website,” said Mr. Foney. “Both wirehouse and independent advisors are coming to our site via Google, warming to our value proposition, and submitting an online form to join. SEO has done wonders for our brand.”
The Investors Capital SEO project has yielded more motivated prospects and improved the company’s brand identity by being at the top of the search results, which, in turn, yields more qualified prospects. The firm is considering making SEO available to its advisors.
“As a top independent broker/dealer, we believe we should be in the top spot,” said Foney. “It’s only natural.”
