We've seen your story before.

You know you need a website for your small business. You’ve been putting it off for years because of [insert excuse here]. But now, you’re ready.

You manage to find a reliable, trustworthy web designer who builds you a beautiful new website at a reasonable price.

Your hot new website launches for the world to see, and you eagerly anticipate the flood of new customers that is sure to come!

But then…

Nothing.

Frustrating, isn’t it? To finally make a real investment into your online presence, only to get zero results in return?

This is the situation that all too many small businesses find themselves in every single day. Owning a beautiful website that gets no traffic and zero new customers.

And you know what? We had the same problem.

So we did something about it.

0 to 27,000 visits every month.

We were super pumped to be doing web design differently. To offer fast and affordable web design for small businesses everywhere. And to do all of it with a level of honesty and transparency rarely seen in the industry.

But we were starting from scratch. And, like literally every other business in the world, wanted to get on the first page of Google ASAP.

The difference is, while others wanted to, we actually did.

And now we’re ready to help you do the same.

How did we do it?

Listen, search engine optimization is hard. The days of keyword-stuffing and link directories are long gone, friends.
For the past 10-15 years, if you wanted to have a shot at getting on the first page of Google, you needed to be producing regular, stellar-quality content on your website.
Writing fantastic blog posts that prioritize the user experience is exactly how we got RapidWebLaunch to rank #1 in Google for some very competitive keywords.
Put simply, we grew our entire SEO agency through nothing but organic traffic. (and some good ol’ fashioned word-of-mouth)
Is it still possible to replicate this success?

But things have changed...

Simply put, AI (artificial intelligence) is changing everything. And fast.

The barrier to entry for creating high quality blog posts has been dramatically lowered. Anyone with a phone can write about anything with the help of AI.

This means that the internet is going to be inundated with content. Your business would need to invest thousands of dollars per month if you want to have a chance at ranking near the top.

Which is why a strategy adjustment is needed.

Here is how we can rank your local business where it really matters. In your community.

David Brooks, the owner of Dakota Trauma Therapy, giving a fine testimonial for the small business digital marketing agency, RapidWebLaunch.

RapidWebLaunch has provided exceptionally effective Search Engine Optimization for us on an ongoing basis.

[We] have moved to, or very near, the top of page one of Google without having to separately purchase keywords for several of our most desired terms including PTSD, EMDR, anxiety, etc.

Our business has grown very significantly over time primarily due to RapidWebLaunch’s search engine optimization (SEO).

How to choose the best local Chicago SEO company for your business.

How exactly do you find the best SEO services for you when everyone makes the same claim?

They're
honest

Have a conversation with the SEO expert. (Like, talking. No email or text.) You'll quickly get a feel of what kind of person they are.

They're
Proven

Unless they're new (at which point you can likely get them at a discount), they should have case studies to prove their expertise.

They're
realistic

Are they making grandiose claims and guarantees? Sounds lovely. But it's likely not true. No SEO expert can guarantee anything.

They're
affordable

Affordable SEO is relative. But, generally speaking, good SEO doesn't need to cost a fortune. Your ROI should be clear.

They
RANK

Would you hire a mechanic that drives a piece of junk? A cleaner with a dirty home? So why hire an SEO expert that doesn't rank?
