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 ๐Ÿ˜‰)

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.

We've got the case studies to prove it.

How to choose the best local SEO agency for your business.

How exactly do you find the best SEO agency 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
realistic

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

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?

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
affordable

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

They're
buds

Can you see yourself grabbing a beer with this SEO expert? Ok maybe this one isn't super important but it would be cool!

Local SEO Services FAQs

And our most frequent answers. ๐Ÿ˜‰

That’s the wrong question. Your question should be: “Is my SEO agency making me money?”

Here’s why.

The cost of SEO services can vary as widely as the businesses seeking them, making this question a bit like asking, “How long is a piece of string?” It really depends on your unique needs, the size of your business, your industry, your target audience, and your overall digital marketing goals.

At the lower end of the spectrum, small businesses or startups might find basic SEO packages for as little as $300-$500 per month. These packages often cover the essentials like keyword research, on-page optimization, and maybe some local SEO.

If you’re a medium-sized business in a competitive industry, or if you’re looking to target a broader geographic area, you may need more advanced services. These could include comprehensive SEO strategies like content marketing, link building, social media promotion, and ongoing SEO audits. These services could range anywhere from $1,000 to $2,500 per month. (or more!)

Now, if you’re a large corporation or an e-commerce website with a significant amount of products, you’re looking at a higher range, anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 per month or even more. These high-end services typically include all the previously mentioned services, plus advanced data analytics, competitive analysis, and customized SEO strategies.

While cost is certainly a factor, the quality and effectiveness of the service are paramount. A cheap SEO service that doesn’t deliver results is no bargain, while a higher-priced service that significantly boosts your search rankings and drives traffic to your site can deliver a fantastic return on investment. As with many things in business and in life, with SEO, you often get what you pay for.

In the end, the best way to determine how much you should pay for SEO services is to clearly define your SEO goals, set a budget that you’re comfortable with, and then find a reputable SEO provider who can meet your needs within that budget. A good SEO provider will be transparent about their pricing and be able to demonstrate the results they’ve achieved for other clients.

The short answer: Absolutely, yes!

The slightly longer answer: Yes, but let’s explore why.

Imagine you’re throwing a grand party. You’ve prepared scrumptious food, decorated your venue beautifully, hired a fantastic band. But when the day comes, no one shows up. Why? Because you forgot to send out invitations. This, in a nutshell, is what it’s like to have a website without SEO. You could have the most visually stunning, user-friendly site with brilliant content, but if it’s not optimized for search engines, it’s like a party without guests.

SEO services are the invitations to your online party. They ensure that your website is found by the right people at the right time. By optimizing your site’s structure and content, SEO makes your website more attractive to search engines like Google, which in turn makes your site more visible to potential customers searching for the products or services you offer.

But the benefits of SEO services don’t stop at visibility. Premium SEO can also improve your site’s usability, enhance the user experience, and establish your brand’s credibility โ€“ all of which can significantly boost your conversion rates and increase your return on investment.

Moreover, the results of SEO are trackable and quantifiable. You can see exactly which strategies are driving traffic to your site, which pages are attracting the most visitors, how long they’re staying, where they’re coming from, and so much more. This valuable data can inform your marketing strategies and help you make more informed business decisions.

So, is it worth paying for SEO services? If you want your website to be more than just a digital business card โ€“ if you want it to be a powerful tool that drives growth and profitability โ€“ then investing in SEO is not just worth it, it’s essential. Just remember that SEO is a long-term strategy, so while you might not see results overnight, with patience and the right SEO partner, you’re likely to see a substantial return on your investment.

Imagine SEO as your fitness routine. You can’t just do a couple of workouts, lose some weight or gain some muscle, and then stop, expecting to maintain your new physique forever. Fitness requires consistent effort, ongoing adjustments based on progress, and sometimes, an expert trainer to guide you. SEO is no different.

So, why is SEO a monthly fee?

Here’s why:

  1. SEO is a Marathon, Not a Sprint: Unlike paid advertising, which can give you almost instant visibility, SEO is a long-term strategy. It takes time to climb the search engine rankings, and maintaining your position once you get there requires continuous effort.

  2. Search Engines are Always Changing: Google, Bing, and other search engines are constantly updating their algorithms to improve user experience. To stay on top of these changes and ensure your website remains optimized, SEO must be an ongoing process.

  3. Your Competition Isn’t Standing Still: If your competitors are investing in SEO and you’re not, you could lose ground in search engine rankings. A monthly SEO service helps you keep up with โ€“ and ideally, stay ahead of โ€“ your competition.

  4. Content is King: Fresh, quality content is one of the key factors search engines consider when ranking websites. A monthly SEO service often includes content creation and optimization to keep your site relevant and engaging.

  5. Data Analysis and Strategy Adjustment: SEO isn’t a set-and-forget strategy. It involves monitoring performance, analyzing data, and adjusting strategies based on what’s working and what’s not. This continuous cycle of analysis and adjustment is essential for SEO success.

So, just like your gym membership or your subscription to a healthy meal plan, SEO is a monthly investment in the health and performance of your website. And with a professional SEO service, you get the benefit of an expert trainer who knows how to help you achieve your goals.

If SEO were a seed, how long would it take to grow into a blooming plant?

The answer, much like the growth of a seed, depends on a variety of factors – the quality of the soil, the care it’s given, the weather conditions, and more.

SEO, like growing a plant, is a process, not an event.

Generally, you can start to see the first signs of SEO ‘sprouting’ anywhere from 2 to 6 months after starting your services. But don’t expect full bloom just yet. These results will likely be small and might not translate into significant changes in your business performance. You might notice a few more organic website visits, a slight increase in your website’s ranking for some keywords, or a small uptick in the time users spend on your site.

As you continue to nurture your SEO strategy over the next 6 to 12 months, like a gardener caring for a growing plant, you’ll see the ‘growth’ become more noticeable. Your website’s ranking for important keywords will improve, organic traffic will increase, and you’ll likely see better engagement metrics, like lower bounce rates and higher session durations.

After a year or so of consistent, quality SEO work, your ‘plant’ will be in full bloom. Your website should have a strong presence on the search engines for your targeted keywords, and you’ll see a significant increase in organic traffic. More importantly, you should start to see these improvements translate into business results – more leads, more conversions, and more revenue.

But remember, SEO isn’t a “set it and forget it” strategy. Search engines frequently update their algorithms, and competitors are always optimizing their websites. So, even when your SEO is in full bloom, you’ll need to continue nurturing it to maintain and improve your results. Like gardening, SEO requires patience, persistence, and consistent care. But when done right, the results can be truly spectacular.

A website with no SEO plan is like putting up a billboard at the bottom of Mariana's Trench.

Letโ€™s get that hot website of yours the attention it deserves.
