Our SEO Campaigns
Search Engine Optimisation is the process of ranking a website highly in the search engines, for pre-selected profitable keywords.
To understand what your business needs, we first need to know your target audience. Our experience comes from targeting the right customers, analysing what terms they are most likely to search & finally ranking your website for these terms. Below are our 3 SEO Campaign options:
Local: For businesses that drive customers to or from a single location.
For example, our common local seo clients include; lawyers, builders, plumbers, architects, estate agents, driving instructors, gyms, electricians and any business that has a physical location OR a business that is only looking to provide their service to customers from a specific city or county. This will generally include service + location type keywords. Our local SEO services also include ranking in the Google map pack which is becoming increasingly important as this now appears above organic search results for the majority of competitive local keywords.
National: For businesses that promote to customers and clients anywhere in the United Kingdom.
We rank your business for all the valuable keywords in Google.co.uk, as well as creating a powerful brand presence, leading to the branded results in Google and search volume for your business’s name itself. These services are for businesses looking to make sales or generate clients from anywhere in the UK. If you are looking to create a powerful UK brand presence this is the option for you.
Global: For businesses that can profit from sales or clients worldwide.
Also called eCommerce or brand SEO, these campaigns are promoted by our entire digital marketing team and by all of our contacts in PR, paid advertising, social and video marketing. We create a unique 6-12 month digital marketing plan, designed to promote your website and create a powerful, authoritative online brand, to dominate Google for all your selected keywords within this period.

Our SEO Services
What exactly does our seo agency offer?
We research, evaluate and report on the most profitable keywords for a business to rank. Targeting the most profitable, efficient keywords for a given campaign and implementing these into our on-page and off-page optimisation strategies. This includes both primary & secondary keywords designed to include longer term competitive keywords and less competitive ones that can be ranked at a faster rate.
Gone are the days when simply inputting your primary keywords on a website would rank that site. Now Google has over 200 ranking factors, including user-experience, brand authority and site speed. Our on-page seo services cover all of the on-page factors Google looks for from site speed, keyword placement, internal linking & much much more.
We create in-depth audits to ensure there are no technical issues with your website, including; Google penalties, negative seo or broken links. This is then reported back to client’s with the recommended action to be taken. These recommendations are then implemented by our on-page or off-page optimisation team. Audits can also be provided as one off packages.
This is one of our most profitable services for clients. We create secondary web-properties, such as; Facebook pages, YouTube videos or lead generation websites and rank these super-fast for your profitable keywords. This means you generate additional leads as well as establishing a brand dominance in your industry, taking up more of the first page of Google for your profitable keywords.
We research and analyse the top competition in your industry, this gives us an insight into whether we can rank your site for a specific keyword. Unlike other seo consultants we do not sugar-coat the results, based on the online marketing budget that is given to us, we will tell you whether a keyword is achievable in a given time-frame or not.
Creating white-board animation videos that can be used directly on your website or as marketing material for your business. These are then promoted and appear in the actual search results of Google, as well as ranking #1 in YouTube for all relevant keywords, all of which generates additional targeted traffic to your website.
Once our on-page optimisation is complete, we move onto building relevant citations and backlinks. Backlinking and off-page SEO is no longer a quantity focused metric. In 2015 and beyond it’s the quality of the backlinks that point at a website, relevant, authoritative backlinks and citations will result in huge ranking boosts for all primary and secondary keywords.
Our clientèle is split 40/40/20 between local businesses, national companies and international brands.
The campaigns and techniques used to rank each are very different which is why we require as much information as possible about a client’s goals at the start of an seo campaign before creating a detailed proposal. You can see a quick selection of our clients below, or contact us for specific case studies or testimonials.
You will start noticing the results of our campaigns after the first few weeks of a campaign, but the real noticeable results come in month 4-6. of our work. Search engine optimisation is a complex process, because all major search engines are continuously tweaking their search algorithms; so although results may take some time, rest assured they will come. This is why we require all clients to be on a minimum 6 month contract and why the majority of the jumps appear in the second half of this time.
The price of search engine optimisation depends on the needs of your business and whether you would like to target a local, national or global market. It's also dependent on the competition in your area or industry. Prices start at £499 a month for local businesses and range up to £6,999 a month for full digital marketing campaigns for global brands. We are looking to work with businesses that already understand the value of digital marketing and how potentially profitable it can be for their business.
It is important to remember that although SEO is a great way to get customers to your website, it's totally useless without a site that converts well. This is why one of our first online marketing methods is conversion rate optimisation. This is important so more of the traffic that we will later generate for your business will convert into paying clients or customers. We integrate CRO practices during the on-page optimisation section of the campaign.
Our seo campaigns do not work on a maximum/minimum keyword basis. We rank your business for ALL PROFITABLE keywords and do not simply base our promotions on a specific number. We are also not happy with 1 spot on page one, we create and rank separate websites, videos and other web properties to ensure your business can pick up ALL of the search engine visitors who are looking for a specific business, service or product.
