Working with an SEO Consultant Step by Step

1. Initial research

We will have a chat so I can understand your current search engine optimisation situation.

  • Do you have a website yet?
  • Have you tried any SEO services before?
  • What would you like to achieve from our work together?

I want to understand where you are, where you want to be, and how quickly you want to get there.

The more I understand your business, the better able I am to help you get the success you are looking for from search engine optimization.

2. Strategy

I will create an SEO services strategy for your business.

This can include in-depth keyword research along with suggestions for improving both your on-site and off-site optimization.

If you want to rank locally (aka local SEO), nationally, or internationally this will all be built into the strategy.

I will explain this SEO plan to you.

Ensuring sure I have understood your needs and have created an approach that you are happy with

3. Implementation

I will start work on generating organic traffic to your website.

I will use a combination of market research, fine-tuning your website (on page seo). Then promote your site with a high-quality backlink building campaign.

Each month you will receive a progress update. Letting you know what I have done and how the site is progressing.

I will be open to your feedback and can alter my SEO approach to suit your needs should they change.

Feedback from my Kendal SEO Consultancy clients:

Why is Local SEO So Important for Small, Medium and Large Businesses?

Local SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is crucial for local businesses – not just in Kendal, Cumbria and the Lake District –  but anywhere in the UK for several reasons:

  1. Increase Online Visibility: It helps businesses appear higher in search engine results pages (SERPs) for location-specific searches. This means that when people in Kendal (or wherever your business is based) search for products or services that your business offers, your website is more likely to appear at the top of the search results, increasing the visibility of your business.
  2. Reach Local Customers:  Local SEO allows businesses to reach potential customers in their local area. By targeting specific keywords and phrases that people in Cumbria (or whichever county you are based in) might use when searching for local products or services, businesses can ensure that their website appears in front of the right audience.
  3. Stand Out from Competitors:  Locally targeted SEO helps businesses differentiate themselves from their competitors. By optimizing their website and Google Business Profile for local search queries, businesses can improve their chances of appearing higher in the search results than their competitors, making it more likely that customers will choose them over others.
  4. Mobile Optimization: Local organic SEO also includes optimizing a business’s online presence for mobile devices. This is important because many people use their smartphones to search for local products and services. By ensuring that your website is mobile-friendly and easy to use on a small screen, you can increase your chances of attracting mobile users to your business.
  5. Cost-Effective: It is a cost-effective marketing strategy for small businesses in Kendal, Cumbria and beyond. It allows businesses to target their marketing efforts specifically to people in their local area, without having to spend money on traditional advertising methods like TV commercials or billboards.

 

In a nutshell…  SEO is important for local businesses because it helps them increase their online visibility, reach local customers, stand out from competitors, optimize for mobile devices, and do so in a cost-effective manner.
