Can We Work Together?
The first stage in any SEO “engagement” is to decide if we are the “right fit” (this is as much for your benefit as mine).
If we agree we can work together, I’ll start by auditing (for an agreed fee) your online market to get a feel for the potential that exists and also the strength of your competition. If you already have a website, I’ll analyse that too. I’ll report back to you with an overall view of the potential that exists within your market and recommend a strategy and plan aimed at helping you grab a “piece of the action”. Only at this stage will I be able to give you a price for ongoing work.
If you want to hire me on a contract basis, I’ll agree a set of clear goals with you. This is crucial for ensuring a strong working relationship as it helps manage expectations from the outset, ensures transparency and sets a framework to work within.
Surely SEO Can’t Be That Difficult?
To take a poorly designed website, with very little original linkable content, from a lowly position in Google for a highly competitive keyword is bloody hard.
Since Google’s recent algorithm updates, if you do decide to cut corners and hire an SEO agency who use dodgy tactics, any short-term boost in your rankings will be short-lived. Eventually your website will get “slapped” by Google, which will keep its rankings in the doldrums for a LONG time. And, trust me, if you do suffer a Google penalty, the cost of untangling and disavowing all of the harmful backlinks will cost you a fortune, if done correctly.
As the old adage goes, “you get what you pay for”. Still, it never fails to amuse me that small businesses seem happy to spend a fortune on crappy newspaper ads, yet fail to see why they should pay an expert SEO consultant to grow their online revenue.
What Kind of Businesses I Work With
I enjoy working with people who don’t treat SEO or Conversion Optimisation as just passing fads. Who have a long-term vision of success, and aren’t tempted by quick fixes and “cheap” solutions.
So, if you’re at the early stages of developing an online digital strategy for your business, or if you already have a website but it’s not generating the enquiries or sales you had hoped for, I can help. I’ll work with you to put things right so you don’t waste time making the same mistakes most of your competitors are.
