Smarter SEO Strategies to Beat Out Your Competitors

It’s not always a matter of spending more but spending smarter. You deserve SEO search engine optimization services that can outperform your competitors and obtain long-term visibility and brand strength.

Get More Traffic & Ultimately, More Sales

All search engine optimization services are in vain if they don’t translate to actual increases in website visitors plus improved brand reputation and increased sales. Let’s get you the results that matter the most to your bottom line.

“Search engine optimization is one of the oldest and most valuable forms of digital marketing. As search algorithms have continuously become smarter and more contextual, marketers need to focus less on the “hacks” and “tricks” of SEO and more on providing an outstanding and meaningful experience to their users.” (Forbes.com)

Today’s online marketplace is very competitive for companies of all sizes – from local trades and service providers to national and international corporations. Regardless of your company size, SEO services must be part of your online Marketing Strategy in order to tap into the potential of your ever-increasing online audience.

At 1st on the List, we also believe that our search engine optimization services must be driven by your ROI (Return on investment). It’s what you expect to get out of any marketing initiative and it is always our end goal. We achieve this through our unique approach, which is a combination of what we’ve seen work for clients over the last 25 years as a Canadian SEO company, plus where we anticipate Search going in the future.

No matter the size or scale of your campaign, the underlying purpose of SEO is to make your website more accessible and more relevant. Your site needs to rank better, attract motivated and highly qualified search traffic, provide more leads, more conversions and sales, and ultimately improve your ROI to grow your business.

Each and every search engine optimization campaign is results-driven and we measure our campaign success by your satisfaction.

SEO Services FAQ

This is a loaded question as no two businesses are alike. As such, we customize all of our SEO Campaigns and Projects to reflect your website’s current position and where exactly you want to take it. There are many other factors that influence SEO cost including the competitiveness of your industry and how fast you want to achieve results.

In general, our Custom SEO Campaigns start around $2,000/month and our Local SEO Campaigns start at $600/month.

The best way to determine the scope of work and cost of your own campaign is to speak with our experts. We will be able to give you a ballpark cost estimate once we’ve reviewed your site to help you gauge if we are the right fit for you.

SEO services can vary greatly based on a number of factors, including:

  • The target market.
  • The range of products and services we optimize.
  • The geographical reach of the campaign.
  • The competitiveness of your industry.
  • The number of pages to be optimized on your website.
  • The level of optimization currently on your website.
  • The speed at which you want to grow your campaign.
  • The level of results you want to achieve.
  • The duration of the SEO campaign.
  • The skill, expertise and experience of your Project Team.

You can either request a proposal through our website and we will be in touch with you or you can call our office at 1-888-262-6687 to speak with us right away. We will ask you some questions about your website, previous online marketing efforts, and the results you want to achieve. From here we will do our own investigative research on your website’s current visibility and your market to provide an accurate cost estimate and general SEO strategy. If you like what we have to say, we will provide an official project quote and paperwork that you can sign off on in order for us to get started on your project.

Yes! We have several SEO Consultants on our team with years of experience in working alongside In-House SEO and Marketing Departments. In fact, this is becoming more and more common in recent years. We understand the nuances of working with C-level executives, Marketing Directors, IT Departments, and more. Our ultimate goal is to provide the expertise where you need it most, offer training to grow your team’s knowledge and ability to do their job well, plus improve your bottom line.

We do not offer guarantees as we feel that most SEO guarantees are misleading and give a false sense of security. Furthermore, Google clearly warns against any SEO company offering guarantees. Keep in mind that even if a company guarantees a refund if results aren’t achieved you’ve still wasted months or years of building a solid SEO foundation and all the missed sales that come as a result. There’s much more at risk than just your monthly campaign spend.

At 1st on the List, we stand behind the quality of our work, delivering on our agreed scope of work, and guarantee that we will do everything within our ability to ensure your best chances of visibility, traffic, branding, and ultimately success.

In the past, top search engine rankings were the primary benchmarks behind our search engine optimization services. A lot has changed in recent years. While a top search engine ranking is still important, it is only one aspect of the equation in determining the success of an SEO campaign. Improved user experience and web analytics continue to play a major role in helping to improve your web page’s reputation with the search engines. Plus, improving web page function, increasing traffic, increasing visitor loyalty, increasing conversions, and ultimately, increasing ROI are all crucial.
