Passion for SEO, Excellent Results
Your Job Title: Consultant and Trainer

Dawn is one of those professionals that you meet and you realize, in an instant, that they absolutely love their job, almost obsessed with the subject, and they are really , really bloody good at it!



When I meet people like this, I always want to work with them, as passion for a subject and depth in knowledge just gives you incredible work.



I met Dawn in 2013 at the IDM when I was guest lecturing on her diploma, we have since worked on a number of consultancy projects together. Dawn's knowledge of SEO is both impressive and extensive and she is able to bring a real mix of practice and academia to her work.



Dawn has a great understanding of the mechanics of search engines and how sites are perceived by them. She is able to bring this in-depth understanding to campaigns with excellent results.



One of the best technical SEO people that I am likely to know in my professional lifetime.

Bobby understand both the web AND business!

Bobby not only has a deep understanding of all aspects of search marketing based on YEARS of experience but has a practical understanding of how to integrate online marketing into a company's overall strategy. He knows the importance of getting to understand a company's business; learning what the firm does, where and how it gets its customers, what kind of customers it wants, what kind of message it should send them, and where it can find opportunities for growth. Bobby knows that a website does not exist in a vacuum and is not just a work of art; he knows it is a tool to help a company achieve its larger goals and bases his approach around that goal. I know this from personal experience: that is how Bobby approached his assignment with my own company (an online retailer) several years ago when we were trying to increase traffic and revenue in preparation for selling the company, and his results were astounding. Bobby understands how the web works, and he understands how business works, and that is a powerful combination.

Since 2002, I’ve helped small businesses grow through search engine optimization, paid search marketing, social media advertising, and email marketing with a focus on ROI….

How to hire a local SEO company

As a business owner, you should be focusing on new ways to market your business. You should have a great looking website with a blog filled with quality content. It is also important that you have a profile on several social media sites.

Hopefully, you are focused on search engine optimization, otherwise known as SEO. You need to cater all of your content for your audience so that it seems to engage them even more.

Focusing on marketing and SEO will work well for most business. However, if you have a specific location, you also need to be working on your local SEO.

What is local SEO?

Local SEO takes search engine optimization to a whole new level. It is very effective when trying to reach new local customers who just happen to be looking for products and services online.

By using your city, state, and region through your content marketing, you are going to find a whole new group of local customers. You also need to utilize Google My Business listing to make sure that you get in front of as many people as possible.

How does it work?

In order to be found online by your local customers, you need to focus on three core elements.

  • This is determined by how close your business is to the person searching.
  • Are your products and services relevant to what potential local customers are searching for?
  • What your customers are saying about you means a lot. Because of this, you need to be monitoring your reviews and go above and beyond to make sure that your customers have a good experience with every visit.

To do so, you need to do the following:

  • Localize your website. It is important that you include your city, state, and region throughout the site. Make sure that, when a potential customer is looking around, they know where you are located.
  • Claim your Google My Business listing. This is an important step to put your business in front of local search results (including Google Maps). The truth is that most businesses aren’t taking advantage of this step, which could really help you grow your local SEO.
  • Monitor your reviews. Reviews are essential when it comes to local SEO. Search engines want to know that they are sending people to businesses that can be trusted. Make sure that you take time to keep up with your reviews.
  • Use links. Links are essential for good SEO. If you are trying to get ahead locally, make sure that you link your local newspapers and other local businesses to put you ahead of the others.
  • Think about local citations. Local citations are when your business gets mentioned online. Part or all of your address should be included for it to qualify as a local citation.
  • Focus on local SEO with your title tags, headers, meta descriptions, and much more. You need to make sure that you include your city, state, and region in your title tags, headers, and meta descriptions.

What are some challenges that I may face?

Trying to reach more people using local SEO is not always easy. In fact, you might find yourself struggling with some common challenges. These include:

  • Not thinking locally. Many businesses forget to put their address on their website. However, it is essential that you sprinkle your city, state, and region through your website and content in order to be found.
  • No reviews. Reviews are essential for local SEO. New businesses often struggle to get reviews, even though they do everything that they can to give their customers a good experience.
  • Not enough time. Most small business owners don’t have enough time to think about marketing and local SEO. They have more pressing issues (such as taking care of customer’s orders) and their marketing doesn’t get enough attention.
  • Changing landscape. Google makes thousands of algorithm updates a year. You are going to have to stay on top of these changes in order to keep your business on top.

Because marketing and local SEO are so complicated and time-consuming, many businesses hire someone to do the hard work for them. These people can usually do a lot with a little bit of money because they are talented. They know what works and what doesn’t so that all of your marketing efforts are working as effectively as possible.

What does a typical engagement look like?

Part of determining whether you are getting the engagement that you want, you have to stay proactive. The follwoing are some things that you need to focus on when you are doing your local marketing.

  • Technical and content audit to identify needed technical and content changes. You are going to have to go over your website and content on a regular basis to make sure that you catch any areas where you need to make changes or improve, in order to get the most out of your marketing. It is especially helpful to catch these early.
  • Content creation and promotion. Though you may think that all you have to do is create content, the truth is that you are going to need to promote it all over the web. You may want to share your content throughout social media, with your email list, and much more.
  • Active local citation procurement to help with local map rankings. It is up to you to make sure that you are getting the local citations that your business deserves. To do this, you are going to have to come up with a strategy to monitor your reviews. You are going to want to have some control over how your business is seen online.

If you are confused about local SEO and want to make sure that you are doing as much as you possibly can to get your business noticed, don’t hesitate to contact us today. We will be glad to help you put together a marketing plan that gets you the results that you deserve.
