Your SEO strategies are mostly fine but if I were you, I would stop submitting content to article submission sites. They tend to be sometimes spammy and has duplicate content. Focus more on creating online interactions like in social media, forums and even blog commenting.
They do but just work on offpage and onpage SEO, backlinks, page speed and content for sure is a king. You will find lot of SEO tips online on google so I would suggest if you start from there.
Well @PoolFiltersUSA I gues @OP is already getting his hands dirty over off page - don't you thing "content focused Press release, article submissions, blog articles" comes under off page ?
I suggest not to do article submission as it can be considered as spammy. If you really want to increase your traffic and ranking do submit your article on blog and share them with your friends and followers on social networks. It will help you to make your website more viral and you will get natural backlinks from your friends and followers too.
You can also add your websites to online review platforms like Yelp and ask clients to write some good reviews about it. Don't do mass article submission or you will have negative impact. Better write some good articles and find relevant blogs to publish them.
