There are several keyword tools on the market, but Google has a simple to use and free option that is get for getting keyword ideas. In your favorite search engine, type in “Google keyword tool” without the quotes and the first listing should be the Google AdWords keyword tool.

Next, in the left hand column under “match type,” select “phrase.” Type in the word or phrase that describes your business, such as “Orlando catering” and hit enter. Google will produce a list of words people are using when trying to find a caterer in the Orlando area.

Review the list and select few keywords. Keep in mind you are marketing to brides, your goal is to choose keywords that are logical for a bride to use when searching for your business. For example, “best wedding caterer in Orlando” is a good choice, whereas “how to start a catering company in Orlando” is someone looking to start a business, not buy your services.

I Have My Keywords, What Next?
