My services will help you better understand what goes into building a search engine friendly website and how to go about resolving the issues that cause your site to perform poorly in a keyword search. For those looking to have a new site built or an existing site rebuilt, I also offer WordPress website and blog design services.
Choosing The Right Small Business SEO
Small Business SEO services can be expensive, but don’t rule out making your site search engine friendly until you have all the facts. SEO requires an investment of time, money and patience…but that doesn’t mean success is out of reach for your small business. The right information can save your budget and save your sanity. You may have tried the “too good to be true” solutions that promise a page 1 ranking in Google in 7 days or less for $49. Did it work? I didn’t think so.
Small Business Search Engine Optimization can seem a little like a minefield waiting to take your legs out from under you at your first misstep. I know it’s intimidating and I know it’s overwhelming, but the worst thing you can do is nothing. Wishing your site ranked better won’t make it so. Why not start by figuring out what’s wrong with it today? Then you can put together a plan to get things moving in the right direction. You can’t get where you want to go unless you understand and acknowledge where you are.
Affordable SEO Solutions for Small Businesses
Big Internet Marketing agencies often can’t understand or empathize with the budget realities facing small businesses today. SEOAly began as a not-for-profit blog dedicated to helping small business owners learn some of the basics of Search Engine Optimization. Most small businesses don’t have big marketing budgets. Small businesses don’t have thousands of dollars a month to spend for SEO services, even if such an investment would pay off in the long term. That doesn’t mean you should turn your back on SEO altogether.
As is the case with many small business marketing tasks, the ultimate responsibility often falls on you – so learning more about how your site is built and what may be causing it to perform poorly in a keyword search is an essential first step toward making necessary improvements. Once you know what’s wrong and what needs to be fixed, you may be able to fix some of the issues yourself. When the buck stops with you and you have more time to invest than money, being able to stretch your marketing budget a bit by taking a do-it-yourself approach to some tasks is a win-win situation.
Small Businesses Don’t Succeed By Pretending To Be Big
My experience as the SEO Specialist at the nation’s largest small business website design & marketing company taught me some very valuable lessons – not only about search engine optimization and Internet marketing best practices, but about the need to approach Small Business Search Engine Optimization from a small business owner’s perspective, rather than from that of a large corporation. The playing fields are different. Hell, the games themselves are different. What works, or what is feasible, for a big business may not apply to a Small Business Search Engine Optimization strategy.
As a small business owner, your best defense against falling victim to a “too good to be true” SEO scam is information. From knowing which keyword terms to target to incorporating the basics of on-site SEO into your website to harnessing the power of social media, I am here to help you navigate the often choppy seas of Internet Marketing. My goal is to help you better understand how the search engines work, what the they look for in a search engine friendly website and how to take an active role in the online success of your small business website.
