Spend an hour updating all your blog posts in 2019 to cross reference each other properly. For example, if you revealed a kitchen project in February of last year, go back and link to the other three kitchens you revealed later in the year. A simple paragraph at the end of a post such as “Looking for more inspo? Check out our Project Name, Project Name and Project Name for our latest kitchen designs.”
You can do the same in your portfolio projects! Include in a description links to similar projects your potential clients might be interested in seeing.
