How long does it take to see results?

This depends. As a general rule of thumb, small local businesses should see good results in search engines within 3 months. Large companies up to 12 months or more. All campaigns and sites are different and there may be additional circumstances that can affect these time frames (e.g. previous Google penalties etc.)

What kind of businesses do you work with and in what capacity?

I work in variety of ways. Either directly with a local business managing their local search rankings and Google My Business visibility.

I also work as an SEO consultant to larger companies advising them on their strategies and SEO roadmap.

I also work as an ‘outsourced SEO department’ for larger enterprises.  I’m also contracted by marketing companies and digital agencies as their SEO provider where I deliver SEO services for their clients.

Do you offer guarantees?

I’m confident that I’ll increase your Google search rankings and traffic.

I don’t guarantee a specific ranking position as offering exact ranking guarantees for SEO is a manipulative tactic used by some SEO’s. They ‘guarantee’ rankings but in the fine print you’ll find that they get to choose the keywords and they will choose low volume, easy to rank keywords.

I have an extremely high client retention rate which is testament to the results that I achieve. Sometimes, clients leave because they get too busy! At the end of the day, I put in the work and nothing makes me happier than seeing you get results.

Is there a minimum term contract?

No. However, I do recommend a minimum of 3 months for small businesses and 6 months or 12 months for larger companies. But you’re free to stop my services at any time. But remember, a good SEO strategy is to put in the work over the long term. My most successful clients have been investing in search for many years and the SEO results are worth the effort.

Why should I work with you?

I’m obsessed by SEO – that’s my passion and enjoyment – weird? Yes. I’ve been specialising in SEO since 2010. I’ve made all the mistakes you can make so I know what to do, what not do to, and importantly what to prioritise. I firmly believe that you need to specialist in a profession to do it well. And you need to have experience. From what I see, there are a lot of people getting paid to do SEO who don’t have the skills or experience and it’s a big waste of money, costing you more in the long run. Also, I see business owners or staff within businesses doing their SEO to ‘save a few bucks’. Same story, nothing much happens, it takes people away from what they’re good at – running their business – and it’s a costly exercise.

I’ll also be completely transparent with you and will communicate openly and honestly. SEO is confusing, even for me sometimes but I’ll try and convey exactly what’s going on so you’re well informed.

What reporting do you do?

I’ll send you a monthly ranking report of your keywords, traffic from search engines and number of leads. It’s an easy to read document that clearly shows how you’re progressing.

Why Choose an SEO consultant over an Agency?

  • One person to answer to.
  • 12 years of SEO experience vs  a 2nd year 50K account junior.
  • My experience of being ‘in the trenches’ for 12 years enables me to get things done fast. I know what to do first so your effective spend is multiplied, and ROI is increased.
  • I care more. My business is built on the success of my clients. If I don’t get results, my business suffers.

I'm worried I'll waste money

SEO if done correctly and given enough effort can be life-changing for a business. I’ve worked with many businesses that have transformed thanks to large improvements in their organic lead generation. But on the other hand, SEO can be a waste if you cut corners. Choose a cheap provider or an agency that just doesn’t have the experience and you won’t get anywhere. You’ll waste a lot of time and money and it may even penalise your website in the search results.

What website platforms do you work with?

I work with WordPress, Shopify, Squarespace, Wix, Magento, Big Commerce, Hubspot, Joomla, Duda, Woocommerce and Drupal.

Why does a website have poor Google rankings?

There are 3 main reasons you don’t have any rankings in Google:

– Your site is new.
– The content on your site is not as good as your competitors.
– Google doesn’t trust your site as an authority in your industry.

Based on the above, I can work out where you need to improve and provide the solution that will bring your site above your competitors.
