5. Analyze

1. Measurement: In the beginning we ensured everything that matters was being tracked through various analytics tools, Google Search Console, click tracking, A/B testing, and more.

2. Analysis: It’s time to take all of that data and see what it tells us. What new questions do we have? What conclusions can we come to? What worked? What needs adjustment?

3. Reporting: We share all of the above with you in an interactive report that we review on a monthly basis.

4. Adjust: We take our learnings and apply them in the form of small tweaks or major changes.

You Must Have Questions. Here Are The Answers.

How much does an SEO campaign cost?

For an annual project, our minimum is $2,500 per month. However we also provide shorter-term SEO projects with certain requirements. If you want to get the best ROI, let's talk so we can put together an accurate traffic projection and proposal. Otherwise we'll just be guessing.

Do you have an hourly rate?

Nope. We charge on a project basis rather than by the hour. You are paying us for results, our experience, and the quality of our work, not for the amount of time we spend on your project. You get quality work and we get to keep providing it. Win-win.

How long does an SEO campaign take?

Depending on your industry, you will begin to see performance improvements within 60-90 days of the start date. The most successful campaigns are ongoing with at least a year of work required, but we also offer shorter-term projects. No matter the size of your business, we need time to work our process, which you can learn more about here

Do you do shorter SEO projects?

We do, but the devil is in the details. We're open to SEO work that doesn't involve full 12-month campaigns, but it depends on the effort and the resources we'll need to muster. As with most questions you may have, the best thing to do is get on the phone with us.

How do you run your SEO campaigns?

Can you guarantee results?

Nope, we're not Google, and Google is a public company offering a free service. What we can guarantee is we will use our process to improve your website performance and work with you to grow your revenue via organic search. As you can see from our results above, we know what we're doing.

Can you get me to rank at the top of page 1 on Google?

Any ethical SEO agency will say, "It depends." If you find someone who answers, "Yes", ask them to describe their process and call their past clients. Then you'll find out what they're really about.

The truth is, it does depend on a number of factors:

  • Your current website health and performance
  • Your industry
  • Your competition, i.e. who currently ranks on page 1?
  • Your budget

This is why it's best to discuss your goals, set expectations, and use as much data as possible to project performance and build an accurate SEO proposal for your business. Contact us.
