Who am I?
I’m a son, a husband, a daddy, and a friendly neighbor who has been in the online marketing space for over 15 years. I’ve SEO’d websites from Fortune 500 companies to small mom and pop owned stores. I’ve been fortunate to have learned a lot from great colleagues and by being in the position to manage 40 to 50 accounts at once, which put me in a unique position to understand and identify trends in Google’s ever-changing algorithm. I have been a small business owner myself and know how to influence local and national search.
Why am I doing this?
For a couple of reasons actually. 1) I like helping people. A lot of my family and friends are small business owners that I’ve been able to help with my experience and expertise. And for the most part, I find most small business owners to be great, hardworking people. In the past, in order to get a step up on your competition in the online world, you would have to do start an SEO campaign, go through certain steps, and pay for services to start moving your way up the rankings. The most common approach was to hire an SEO agency who specialized in doing so but it was (and still is) a costly venture for a small business. My wife and I recently explored the option of adding a pool to our backyard and so we started getting quotes from various pool companies. The first one we went to was one of the bigger pool companies in the state and after walking through their “pool park” and talking about what we wanted in a pool, our salesman tallied up with our pool at just over $44k. For some reason, I thought the price would a bit less than that. After all we weren’t’ really doing anything outrageous. No slide or diving board. Just a normal pool with a waterfall feature. Anyway, later that night, my wife came across a company where you BYOP (Build Your Own Pool). The concept was that they would look at your yard and help with the design of it, then they’d give you the directions and lists of various contractors that would perform the different steps of building a pool. The cost savings is almost 50%.
How is this possible?
Just like the SEO agencies out there, this pool builder had a lot of overhead. Big offices, branded trucks, lots of employees, a POOL PARK. Yeah, when it comes down to it, they have to add those expenses in when calculating the cost of a pool and so the price gets passed onto us, the consumer. That night it hit me like a ton of bricks. I could do the same for SEO. People still need an expert to point out and give direction on what needs to be done and some options on how to do it themselves or some “contractors” that could do it for them but…at a much-reduced cost. No middlemen, etc.
You can put the money saved back into YOUR business and let it continue to grow.
No contracts, no middlemen, no high prices. Just 1 Time SEO.
Let me know how I can help you. 🙂
