Your Potential Clients are Searching Online

Are they finding you . . . or your competitors?

The search engines are measuring your website’s Relevancy to the search query, its Authority signals relative to your competitors, and the User Experience your it provides.

Does Search Engine Optimization Work?

According to a study by ahrefs, 90.63% of all web pages get NO traffic from Google, and 92.42% of keywords are searched 10 times per month or less (ahrefs). This is where SEO comes in. 

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).

SEO Pricing

We typically set up the first 5-8 months of an SEO campaign to address the SEO fundamentals – those listed in our SEO Flywheel Framework. The framework begins at $1500 per month, although link building is recommended also.

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. SEO never ends, so our clients typically choose to stay with us for Content Support, SEO management, and Link Building.
