Creating a strategy to suit your budget
I can work with you as a full time SEO partner, or just help you out with certain aspects of optimising your site.
Firstly, let me be honest. In the spirit of transparency, effective Search Engine Optimisation doesn't come cheap. However, investing in a good SEO strategy can also do amazing things for your online business.
For an effective full localised SEO campaign, you should consider a budget of at least around £500 - £750 a month. I don't hold my clients to any sort of long term contract, but I do recommend that they stick with the project for at least 6-8 months to see any rewards. After that, it's very likely that the monthly costs can be reduced to what I class as a 'maintenance plan'.
If a full search package isn't in your budget right now, it might be possible to break it down into smaller projects. For example, I can start by giving your website a health check. Checking the quality of the underlying code, page speed loading times, hosting neighbourhood and content optimisation. Following on from that we can look into an affordable monthly link building scheme based around localised search phrases, which will require less time and effort than a full national or international campaign.
I've had some terrific success with clients, helping them rank for some exciting keywords and phrases, but one thing to remember with Search Engine Optimisation is there are no guarantees.
Only Google can determine where websites rank. What I can guarantee is that I will only use white-hat techniques and proven methods in an effort to get your site ranking. I'll also be totally upfront and honest, that a good rank isn't going to happen overnight. You should expect a minimum period of 6 months before you start to see any results, although this can often be sooner.
