Frequently asked questions
So, you’ll get me ranked #1 on Google?
Hopefully! But there are no guarantees, and anyone who promises first page rankings is unqualified at best and dishonest at worst. However, with effective keyword research and optimized on-page and off-page SEO, I’ll give your website the best chance of hitting the first page for queries your prospective customers are actually searching for.
How will we work together?
I handle all work remotely. We’re lucky to live in an era with myriad options for virtual collaboration to keep costs low. I remember working for a health system in Hawaii that flew in consultants constantly, and the travel bills were nearly as large as the consulting contracts!
My goal is to develop a means of collaboration that works best for you:
- Screensharing through TeamViewer
- Video calls through Skype
- Phone calls
- Instant messaging
Or whatever else you and your team are used to. As a one-man operation, I can be more flexible than any other consultant you’ll find.
How much does a typical project cost?
Prices vary significantly depending on the size of your project, and I handle projects of all sizes from one-off strategic planning sessions for new businesses to multi-month engagements where I become a pseudo-employee executing your plan.
Rates depend on the scope of work, but I aim to be around $50 per hour. A recent study by Ahrefs found that the most common hourly rate is between $100-$150, so I stand out as a budget-friendly option for small businesses and start-ups. Frankly, I just really enjoy getting in on the ground level with motivated entrepreneurs like yourself.
How will I know if I’m getting a good return on investment (ROI)?
My process begins with a kick-off meeting where we discuss your needs and determine the scope of work. An important part of this meeting is discussing measurable key performance indicators (KPI) that we can use to evaluate whether our plan is working.
These KPI are specific to your business’s goals. Common KPI are the following:
- Cost per lead
- Traffic-to-lead ratio
- Organic search volume
- Email sign-up conversion rate
- Email open and/or clickthrough rates
- Time on page
And that is not an exhaustive list. Together, we’ll decide which metrics equal success for your business. Then we’ll find a way to track them and report on them regularly.
