Freelance SEO Consultant
I am a highly motivated SEO Consultant with over 14 years successful search engine optimisation experience.
I'll provide a strong increase in your website traffic via improved rankings on Google Search
Why Work with Me
Increase Website Traffic
I have over 12 years SEO experience working across many business sectors, I know how to increase organic traffic to your website and it’s not just any traffic, it’s people who are searching for your products or services. My SEO work is ethical, I don’t take risks with your livelihood.
Transparency in SEO is paramount, and trust is how any business relationship is built, I therefore encourage your engagement, questions and queries. I will provide a full SEO report at the end of each month and will arrange regular in person or online meetings to discuss the reports.
SEO is the most powerful form of digital online marketing and due to the relatively low costs of doing it (you are only paying for an SEO professional), it also offers the highest return on investment (ROI). The caveat is that it does take longer to achieve results compared to 'paid search' such as Google Adwords.
I'm Cheaper Than an SEO Agency
If you decide to work with an established digital agency, then you are going to pay more for SEO services than you would do compared to working with me. I have very few overheads and I generally do all of the work myself, so you are not paying for the services of a team.
No Long Term Contracts
I don't work with contracts, I prefer a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ which allows you to scale up or down at any given time. I can work on a month-to-month basis or just on a fixed piece of work and If for any reason you wish to terminate the agreement, all I ask is for 30 days’ notice in order to tidy up any loose ends.
I am Location Independent
Because I work freelance, I can work from anywhere with a good internet connection, my home, my office or even your office. I am happy to meet you in person to update you on progress and outline future plans or we can arrange an online call on Skype, Zoom or similar.

Why SEO Works
It Helps Build Brand Credibility
Establishing your brand as an authority in its respective industry takes a lot of time, patience and effort but by offering valuable products or services and promoting them using SEO, you can demonstrate your expertise and so increase trust with customers and prospective buyers.
It Provides Better User Experience (UX)
Providing a positive User Experience (UX) to website visitors is an increasingly important aspect in how Google determines where your website appears in search engine results pages (SERPs). Ensuring that your SEO is done correctly will massively help with UX and your overall organic search results.
It Impacts the Customer Buying Cycle
It's no secret that people do online research prior to a purchase. By using good SEO, you can provide important details of your products or services and any deals or offers you may have. This sort of information when presented correctly undoubtedly has an impact of the customer buying cycle.
It's a Relatively Cheap Marketing Strategy
There are obvious costs associated with SEO but when compared to other marketing strategies, it is a an inexpensive way of promoting your business, products and / or services that will (if done correctly) deliver an excellent return on investment.
It's a Long Term Marketing Strategy
Good SEO will have a positive impact on your website and business within approximately 12 months of commencement, often in much less time depending on your industry. Although there are regular algorithm changes in SEO (thanks Google!), the benefits of it are most certainly always long term.
It Delivers New Opportunities
SEO will deliver new opportunities to you brand and business as the more identifiable and recognisable you become, the more interest you will receive, it is how the internet works. People will start to search for your brand and not just a keyword associated with you making the end result a much bigger probability.

How much do you charge?
I charge between £280 and £950 per month for SEO consulting services, depending on your requirements.
If you are a small local business targeting just a few keywords then 1 day per month will usually be sufficient, however, for larger national websites or eCommerce stores then I usually estimate between 2-4 days per month.
I usually recommend 'front loading' my time in order to get the most important work done quickly and efficiently, we can then discuss a lower monthly retainer to ensure you maintain your rankings which I will have hopefully already delivered.
