Does Search Engine Optimization Work?
Organic search (the focus of SEO) accounts for 53% of all website traffic – more than social media, social media advertising, Google Ads, direct traffic, and traffic from links on other sites – all combined! In fact, SEO drives 1000+% more traffic than organic social media (Brightedge).
Our 5-Step SEO Advisor Growth Framework for Financial Planners
We typically set up SEO campaigns at $1000 per month, then determine how long it will take to complete based on the work that is required. For example, the above 5 phases generally take 4-7 months to complete, but may be shorter or longer depending on what services you need and how many pages/blog posts your website has.
The process can be completed faster if you want to commit to a larger monthly budget.
Upon completion of the campaign, we can determine how much support, if any, you would like to have moving forward.
We also offer a la carte services if you are looking for something other than a campaign.
Phase 1: SEO Road Map
Phase One includes our on-boarding process, compiling data from Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and other SEO tools, and analyzing the data and your site to determine what needs to be done. Mapping a route to ranking success.
Phase 2: Blog Audit & Optimization
This is where we dive into your existing blog content. We do a comprehensive blog-by-blog audit determining best use for each piece of content – leave as is, update, rewrite, optimize, redirect (remove).
In addition to getting the most out of your existing content, this allows us to identify content gaps. We use these content gaps, along with the keyword research we completed in Phase Two, to build out a Content Calendar for your team and Content Briefs for your team.
The Content Briefs are more than just a list of topics. Each Brief includes the suggested title, keywords, how long the article should be, subheadings that should be included, and more that will help that piece rank against existing competition.

Phase 4: Local SEO
Google (and other search engines) offer a ranking advantage to local businesses.
If you have an address within a city, you are eligible to appear in the Local Search Results (i.e. Google Maps and Google 3-pack) for that city.
This phase focuses on the extra steps that are required to optimize your site for local search rankings, including:
- Setting up or optimizing your Google My Business page
- Setting up, or optimizing, your account with the other local search engines
- Registering your business with the local aggregators
- Building and/or fixing business citations
- Content mark-up for local search
Phase 5: Authority
Now that the SEO foundation is set and you’re producing great content, it’s time to build up your perceived authority. We will help you develop backlinks – the strongest signal of authority – and an internal linking strategy to make sure that authority is flowing to your most important pages.
In addition, if your link audit turns up bad backlinks – maybe from being hacked – we will mark those as disavowed so that Google knows to not count them against you.
* Does not include content creation or rewrites
