Conversion is more important than traffic
Without a proper understanding of your product or target audience, you may end up getting a lot of traffic from Google that would ultimately do no good to your business. SEO never works on a broader level, the more specific your keywords are the better your SEO process and your sales conversion. Professional SEO agencies will try to have a clear understanding of your business, your products/services, your target audience and your sales process before beginning the process. In contrast, the rest will be more worried about your website metrics and so on.
Note: Knowing how SEO works is important but understanding how to make SEO work for your business is where your money should be placed.
Content is primarily for your customers (and not for Google)
A good content strategy is to find out the questions, concerns, and doubts your customers have and wedding it to your uniqueness, offers and key features. Starting from FAQ, all the way to write a whitepaper the very basic part of content creation should revolve around this rather than just on keywords and rewrite from competitors. When it comes to SEO, content plays the central role, making it the most crucial part of achieving ultimate results for your business. A professional SEO agency will try to understand your business and target audience clearly, and then come up with a content strategy that will rank well on Google and improve your sales conversion.
Note: Knowing what brings traffic is not important but understanding how to provide your potential customers with the right content matters a lot.
