Are you an authority in your field? Can you build your site up into the go-to resource for your particular topic? If you can, you can become the authoritative source that gets referred to on other platforms and forums which results in beautiful backlinks coming into your site.
Content that you generate off your site on social media that links back to your website or blog posts and collaborations that include links back to your website can all build up a picture of who you are and what your business does. These signals have increased in value as Google’s algorithm has developed and AI has made search more intelligent.
Once you have got your visitors on the website, if you can keep them engaged and interacting with your content, you will demonstrate the value of working with your business and this will also improve your ranking. Better yet, if your visitors like what they see and share it.
