SEO Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of our most frequently asked SEO questions.

How much does SEO cost?

To answer this question I would need to know more information about your business. I can tell you one thing though, the biggest reason why most campaigns fail (possibly yours in the past too), is that the company fails to properly assess the amount of work required to get you a great result and ROI.

That being said, my SEO packages range from $500-$2000 per month.

How long does SEO take?

To answer this question depends greatly on where you are today, what SEO has been done before, and what your competition levels are like.

As a general rule of thumb, most websites on page 2 can be brought to the first page inside 3 months. As for a brand new website, you’re looking closer to 6+ months to get good first page rankings on competitive keywords.

During that time your leads and traffic will increase gradually and regularly, but the big wins are once you hit the top half of the first page.

What is the ROI on SEO?

Generally more than you could ever imagine. I’ve seen clients grow their online sales by 1000% in 16-months, which represented an ROI of over 20X. However, the true value in SEO is that the traffic and leads you acquire last for a very long time. For example – a Plumber in Michigan, from a 12-month custom SEO campaign could receive over 25X their money back in profit over the 12-months after their campaign is completed. Yet in the following 12-months, when they aren’t spending on SEO, their ROI jumps as high as 50X!

Can you get me to #1 on Google?

I will get you to the best possible position for your market, and flood your business with new organic traffic. According to research, it’s better to focus on ranking your business for the right keywords than just chasing #1’s. If #1 is possible for the right terms, then I'll give it everything to get you there.

Will my results drop if I stop doing SEO?

SEO is much like going to the gym. After working out for 12-months straight, you’re going to be in great shape, and even if you stop for 3-months, you’re going to maintain a pretty good physique. However over time your results will drop off, and you’ll need a tune up.

The same is true for your SEO. Everything I do is permanent & long term, however with time your competition may work and out-rank you. If this happens after your campaign ends, simply give me a call and I will walk you through how I can fix it.

Do I need to sign a contract?

No. I believe that if a company needs to lock you in with a long term contract, they aren’t confident in their abilities to delivery quality, effective work that will keep you happy with the results on a monthly basis.

I simply ask that if you need to cancel your cervices you please give me a 2 week notice prior to the start of the month service will be ending.

How do we get started?

I know that you’re busy running your business, so I have made getting started as easy as possible.

Contact me for a free consultation.

We’ll have a quick chat (over the phone or in-person), discuss your business goals and current situation. I will put together a comprehensive proposal as how I think it would be most beneficial for us to proceed. This generally takes about 3-5 days for me to complete, we will have a zoom call or in-person meeting to go over the proposal together, and once you've approved it, I will take over and handle every aspect of your SEO, so you can return to running your business.

Do you offer PPC services?

Yes, if a client is in desperate need of new leads immediately I may recommend doing a short term ppc campaign to bring in additional leads for the time being. In the long term I believe in the benefits of organic traffic driven through SEO as your best long term guarantee for lead generation.

Will you manage my Social Media accounts?

Yes, if I decide that social media campaigns would be beneficial for your business, I will be more than happy to accommodate those needs.

What sort of reporting will I receive?

You’ll receive a ranking report outlining your websites progress in the Google results every month. This provides you with certainty in the early months that although you might not be seeing more phone calls yet, that you are indeed growing forward every single week, and that we will get you to the end result that you want and need.

Is there any guarantees for our SEO service? 

Please understand that no one can guarantee you to rank #1 on Google.

While many SEO companies guarantee a number-one ranking, Google ultimately makes that decision, and no SEO company has a special relationship with Google. Again, the relationship between a guarantee for top rankings and shady SEO companies is strong enough that Google recommends running away.

My guarantee is that nobody will work harder to get you the rankings you deserve than I will.

Is SEO dead?

While SEO isn’t dead, over the years, elements of it have either died or evolved into something totally new. As a result, outdated SEO tactics can now actively kill your rankings on Google.

Contact me today and let me help you! As an SEO specialist, I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with you and achieving your goals in gaining organic traffic.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of our most frequently asked Web Design questions.

How much do you charge to build a website?

There’s not one single answer to this question. A website design is quoted based on the needs of each individual project. Every website is unique and requires different components; we design and develop custom websites specifically for your business.

Will I be able to update the site myself when it’s finished?

Yes! We love it when our clients take control of their website and learn to manage the content on their own website. You will have full access to the backend of your new WordPress website upon migration to make simple text updates, photograph changes, new products and pricing can easily be changed on your own. However, we do recommend a professional (developer) to complete more complex changes and maintenance such as plugin updates, design or structure changes, and complex functionality requirements. We provide hourly tutorials upon completion of your website at $100 per hour if you are interested in learning how to navigate through the backend to make minor updates independently.

Will you maintain our website for us?

We can help maintain your website, or you can do so yourself with the more minor changes. The choice is 100% up to you. We provide on-going support for many of our clients but it is not mandatory. If you choose to have us handle your website maintenance there are several options available. We offer a monthly maintenance plan which includes necessary updates for your plugins and security. You can also contact us as you require updates to your website and we will provide an hourly quote based on your requests.

Do you provide website hosting and domain?

No, you will be responsible for website hosting and domain. This will ensure that you will have full access to your website upon migration.  However, we can recommend hosting packages to you and we will complete the migration to your new hosting including in our website design package pricing.

Will my website be mobile-friendly?

Absolutely! Having a mobile-friendly website is more important than ever! We work hard to ensure your website is responsive on modern devices and browsers.

How much input do I have in the website design process?

A lot! Your input and feedback is crucial to this website design and development process. We’ll start with a lot of questions about your needs, your likes, your wants and work with you to develop just the right look and functionality.  We also request you to provide sample websites before we begin your project. Remember this is your website and we need your help and direction as to your final vision.  We’re a team and look forward to hearing your ideas.

Who writes the text/content for the website?

We require that you provide all of the text content for your website. You are the expert on your business, so it’s always best if it comes from you. If you need  assistance, we have a copywriter on our team who can help clean up or write original content for you at an additional cost.

Do you only create WordPress websites?

Not at all! While WordPress is the best content management system that powers more than 42% of the world wide web, we realize that many other options are on the market. We have experience with various cloud based web development services such as WIX, WebFlow, SquareSpace, and Shopify. Schedule a consultation to discuss your professional needs for your website, and we can help you find the best option.

What if I need help on my site down the road?

We are only an email away! We’re here to help you as much or as little as you need, and we’ll be available even beyond the launch of your new website. Our team takes pride in building a long term business relationship with our clients and we look forward to the opportunity to work on your future projects or growing your website further.

What is copywriting? 

Copywriting is the art and science of writing copy (words used on web pages, ads, promotional materials, etc.) that sells your product or service and convinces prospective customers to take action.

Why is copywriting important for your business?

Copywriting is important because it drives profitability, earns an ROI, and achieves your business's goals by convincing your target customers that your products will solve their needs and offer them value.
