What our clients say

What to expect when working with us

Project Start

At the start of every SEO project we begin with the on-boarding process. Which involves making sure we have a clear plan of action how we’ll be working together. And ensure we have access to everything we need to, make the project a success.

 

Strategy & Research

This is where we will work together to build a roadmap for your business. When we figure out where you want to go as a business, we can then build a plan on how to get there.

We will also be going through our keyword research to make sure we’re targeting the right terms for your business that will be profitable. Every SEO campaign should start with the keywords, from there we can build a plan on how to make sure you show up.

 

Technical SEO

At this point we need to make sure that your website is technically sound, without doing these checks beforehand we could be wasting our time and effort. Not all problems are created equal, but without checking we could be putting fuel in your car that doesn’t have any wheels.

We perform a full audit for every client we work with, this is to make sure that the rest of the work we are going to do has the best opportunity to help your business.

 

Content Creation

Now that we know where you want to go, we need to create content that is going to get us there. We need to make sure that our content matches the intent of the searcher for the keywords we want to target.

Simply creating good content isn’t enough, at every step we are looking to create the best resource out there. Whilst this isn’t always possible, this is what we strive for.

 

Link Building

Links, you can’t do any research on SEO agencies or services without being told links are the be all and end all of SEO.

Backlinks don’t turn a bad website good, but they are vital to rank in competitive markets, every study on links and referring domains confirms this.

We use a lot of methods to build links for our clients, including but not limited to digital pr, content marketing, assets, and images.

 

Review

We are constantly reviewing our work, at every stage. But it’s important to point out why we do this, we do it to better our service and serve you better. Not every campaign works in every industry and some work better than others.

We as a team are always looking for improvement, and without review, this doesn’t happen.

 

Project End & reflection

We are constantly reviewing our work, at every stage. But it’s important to point out why we do this, we do it to better our service and serve you better. Not every campaign works in every industry and some work better than others.

Questions?

If you don’t know what SEO is, you’re probably in the wrong place. But for those of you who do not know that Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is. SEO is optimising things (not always sites) for search engines, the biggest are Google, Youtube & Bing. But any search engine can be optimised, eBay & Amazon are other examples.

This isn’t something that we can simply answer, most of our clients will see progress within the first 3 months of working with us. How much depends on a lot of factors, such as the market you’re in, your starting point, and the age of your website. 

However the more competitive markets can take from 4-16 months to see huge results.

It depends. Typically we don’t work with clients with a lower budget than £1000/month (+vat), however this does change depending on your market. For example a local business might cost less. The best thing is to get in touch and we can give you a better idea of the cost.

We have a lot of methods, as any company should. These include:

  • Linkable Assets – Our personal favourite
  • Images
  • Digital PR
  • Guest Content
  • Skyscraper

We tailor our approach depending on the market.

No. The reason we don’t offer ‘packages’ is more often than not people will misbuy a package thinking that they need X to rank their site. When in actual fact they need X + Y or they overbuy and spend too much money. 

We do have set fees for certain tasks, such as an audit (size dependant), but we stay away from packaging a monthly service because we tailor it to what your business needs.

Absolutely, book a call and we can go through the steps needed to sort it.

After you get in touch (unless you’ve booked a meeting directly), we go ahead and do some initial research on your business to see where you are currently. Then we’ll get together to have a quick chat about your business and the goals you hope to achieve. From then we can see if we’re a good fit for each other.

Monthly reporting with all the KPI’s, such as rankings, traffic, local visibility (for local campaigns) and revenue.

A linkable asset is something that will be of use to other websites, think along the lines of calculators or just a general information piece. 

For example, here is a great piece on Ahrefs that explains the process in more detail

We do. We ask for all our new customers to commit to at least 6 months at least initially. This gives us enough time to get results for your business, even in the more competitive markets.

It means that we’re using tactics that aren’t going to hard to long term viability of your business, our aim is steady growth that can continue growing for years to come. We put the building blocks in place to help your business thrive for a long time, not just a 6 month stint.
