          SEO that works:

          Built to fit your small to midsize business.

          Today’s search optimization is all about meeting the expectations of searchers and site users: the real people searching for and interacting with your site. While there are buzzier topics in 2024 like how to best use AI, here’s what has stayed constant: a USER-first SEO strategy is best for sustained organic search success.

          Backed by 15+ years in day-to-day real world experience with WordPress, Squarespace, Wix and e-commerce platforms including Shopify & BigCommerce, our starting relationship with every new client is a platform-specific onsite/offsite package that’s tailored around your specific needs, boosts brand visibility & authority, and delivers immediate proof of value to justify your SEO investment – as well as help you understand the value of SEO in general.

          Q: Why Is Project-Based SEO the Best Initial Fit?

          A: Our ‘step 1’ package not only contains ALL immediate onsite/offsite priorities for any site situation in a 6-7 week scope of work, it includes expert implementation that leverages the specific strengths of your web platform.

          While search optimization is an ongoing effort, the heavy lifting is always at the beginning — especially to get over technical hurdles or get a new site off the ground in organic search. From here, next steps involve content creation, offsite efforts (blogger outreach, for ex.) and more intensive onsite work (like around reviews/testimonials or other E.E.A.T signals).

          Q: How Can Your Approach Fit My Business through the Long Term?

          A: Backed by 15+ years in everyday experience with WordPress, Squarespace, Webflow, Wix – and leading e-commerce platforms including Shopify & BigCommerce – our starting relationship with every new client is a platform-specific onsite/offsite SEO package that’s tailored around your specific needs, boosts brand visibility & authority, and delivers immediate proof of value to justify your SEO investment.

          Importantly, this also allows us to show you what an ongoing SEO partnership should look like, and we’ll outline how to build from there based on success.

          It just makes better sense: we want to give you as much value as possible in a contained, low-risk package format first in order to earn your long term business!
