What can more leads and sales do for your business?

As we help “SEO” your website it becomes more relevant both to what the Search Engines need to find in order to rank you as well as relevant to what potential customers expect to find on your website. This means better rankings and visibility, more traffic, better user experience on the website and ultimately more leads and sales.

Custom SEO is likely for you if:

  • You target customers regionally, nationally or internationally.
  • You have plans to expand your target market(s).
  • You are in a competitive industry.
  • Your competitors employ advanced SEO strategies.
  • You have a large website with 50+ pages.
  • You run E-commerce on your website.
  • You have done SEO in the past with less-than-desirable results.

Our Proven SEO Process:
5 Stages to Achieve Your Goals

  • Orientation and Goal Setting

    First, we get to know the ins and outs of your company, current website, digital footprint, and competitors. With access to analytics systems we define your website goals and collect benchmark data on the current state of your website so that we can accurately measure results in the future.

  • Deep Dive Analysis

    We spend time sifting through all the elements of your website and digital assets that are influencing your search visibility (as well as visitor experience) in order to discover its strengths and weaknesses. This includes the Technical Site Audit, Keyword Research, Content Review and so much more.

  • Strategy Development

    Based on the website analysis findings and scope of work outlined in your Custom SEO Plan we create a strategy to achieve the SEO goals at hand. This strategy takes a prioritized approach in focusing on fixing the most important and highest impact elements first. In this way we help our clients start seeing results as soon as possible.

  • SEO Implementation and Ongoing Optimization

    Now we get to work in executing the strategy including optimizing the website’s code, content, architecture, internal linking, keyword integration, navigation, and so much more. With Search Engines always updating and your competitors moving forward there is always something to be working on to improve your website.

  • Reporting, Analysis and Ongoing Communication

    Our SEO team is in close communication with you throughout the entire process. Once the initial SEO Implementation is completed you will receive a formal report each month letting you know of our progress in terms of what was completed and what the results were (traffic, conversions, new leads, etc.). We use these reports internally to keep fine tuning your SEO Strategy and making sure you are on track to achieving your website goals.

What’s Included?

Yes, each Custom SEO Plan is 100% unique. However there are key elements or strategies that are almost always included in each Custom SEO Plan. The depth and execution of each element may vary but the concepts stay the same. As we help “SEO” your website it becomes more relevant both to what the Search Engines need to find in order to rank you as well as relevant to what potential customers expect to find on your website. Better rankings and visibility, more traffic, better user experience on the website and ultimately more leads and sales. What can more leads and sales do for your business?

  • Site Audits

    Just like a home renovation you don’t really know what you’re up against until you look behind the walls. Our Site Audits uncover deficiencies and reasons why your site is not ranking as well as your competitors. Our audits and prioritized lists help you understand the most important website fixes that need to be made in order for you to start getting the rankings you deserve. Most times we can find and resolve issues other SEO companies fail to see. This is what we’re famous for!

  • Keyword Research

    Search Engines and visitors look for “keywords” or phrases on your website to understand exactly what you do and what you have to offer. Our Keyword Research uncovers all the relevant phrases customers are using to find your type of products and services. You will know how many people search for each term (search volume) and how many other websites are ranking for the term (competition). Once incorporated into your website’s Content Strategy these terms ensure that your web pages are found for the terms that matter most in order to attract higher levels of qualified visitor traffic.

    Keyword Research

  • Content Optimization

    Once the research phases are completed we jump in! Your type of website and existing content will determine our overall strategy. Generally we ensure your keywords are used properly throughout the website, help develop new content to support the terms you want to be found for, help build your credibility and consistency and improve visitor experience and conversion rates. By having all the information visitors are looking for on your website you attract more leads and sales, ultimately earning a positive return on your SEO investment.

  • What the rest of the internet says about your brand is almost as important as what your website says in the grand scheme of things. In many Custom SEO campaigns we also help with “off site optimization” to build your brand through social media, reviews, citations and other link strategies.

  • Analytics and Reports

    Accountable SEO! Not only does Analytics help you understand what you get in return for what you spend on your website, it also helps you understand what motivates your visitors and how to improve your website even more. We provide sophisticated website analytics implementation to understand where searchers are coming from and who is buying on your website. We’ll set up custom metrics and goal tracking, provide training and support as well as meaningful reports anyone can understand. In the end everyone benefits.

  • Growth Optimization Strategies

    Your business is always evolving, your competitors are always pushing a little harder and the Search Engines are always tweaking their algorithms. These are three solid reasons to continue with ongoing SEO on your website. SEO is a cumulative result of all the small changes you make on your website. For most websites, there are countless ways to become more SEO Friendly and to go after more market share. Our clients who make SEO a priority in their ongoing marketing budget see solid, long term growth in their business.

How do you measure success? What benchmarks do you use?

We also determine success based on what you specifically want to get out of your campaign.

Do you offer guarantees?

We do not offer guarantees as these are almost always misleading and give a false sense of security. Furthermore, Google warns against any SEO company offering guarantees. We do offer a full range of SEO marketing services and personalized consultation from experienced SEO experts directed towards your specific needs to ensure the best chances for success.
