What makes your digital marketing different?
The primary difference in what we do is that we are results driven. We focus on getting our clients a solid return on their investment as fast as possible. Our belief is that for every $1 you invest in marketing you should receive at least $2 in return. We are not a fly by night company, we invest heavily in skills and talent to help ensure our clients always get the best results. Our goal is to form long-term partnerships with our clients and we justify them keeping us around by providing them with a positive return-on-investment for the work we do.
What is the difference between SEO and PPC?
SEO (search engine optimization) is the process of ranking for free organic traffic that shows up “organically” in the search engines. This type of marketing takes upfront work before you see results but is often a more permanent solution that will provide results for years to come when done correctly.
PPC (Pay Per Click) is a form of advertising that can be on any website but is most often seen on search engine results pages, and social media sites. With PPC you pay everytime someone clicks on an ad that directs them to your website. The advantage to PPC is that it can deliver almost instant results in many markets but it is only a short-term solution. As with most marketing with PPC when you stop paying for the ads the traffic they were providing goes away as fast as it appeared.
Can you do marketing for an existing website?
That depends on the website. In most cases, the answer is yes. In most cases, we will make minor tweaks to a site to help improve traffic conversion before we start a campaign (this helps ensure you get the most out of your marketing budget). The only time we would refuse to do marketing for an existing site is if we feel it would be unethical (wasting your money) until the site is overhauled or completely rebuilt.
Can you add features or make changes to an existing website?
Absolutely! Servicing existing websites, making changes and adding features is a big portion of the work we do. We offer both one time work and monthly packages for more continued work. We even do this type of work for other web design agencies.
The only time we would not be able to make these changes for your website is if we feel the site is in such poor condition that it may cause other major issues with the site. In this case, we will let you know before we perform any work.
Do you build your own websites or do you use templates?
All of our websites are custom built from scratch the only themes we use are themes are custom built by use. We are in the premium custom design and development business. We are NOT in the business of reselling themes for and charging you custom website prices for them. We take a lot of pride in the quality of our work we do. All of our design and development work is done from within inside the United States.
Can you modify my template built website?
Depends on the template and the scope of work being performed. These are typically on a case by case basis so just contact us and we can discuss your particular situation in more detail.
Are your web designers/developers in the United States?
Yes! Any code that we write is written from within the continental United States.
How can I keep my site up to date?
You can monitor your site regularly to check for updates or we offer monthly services for this purpose. Our monthly maintenance plans offer security monitory, site updates, and will repair your site from any issues that may be caused by updates.
Why does my website need security monitoring?
A well-built website with a solid marketing plan can have a huge impact on a business. If your site gets hacked or infected with malware this can undermine the investments you have made into your website. So monitoring and regular maintenance is a logical step when it comes to protecting your investment.
What type of digital marketing will get me the most results?
It really depends on your specific business and geographic location. Typically SEO will get you the biggest bang for your buck because when done right it will produce long-term results even after you stop paying for SEO work.
How long does SEO take to see results?
On average you should expect between 3 and 6 months to start seeing solid results from an SEO campaign but this can vary depending on competition, scope of work being done and any previous SEO work that has been done (good or bad).
Do you guarantee SEO results?
No! We do not own the search engines and they are their own unique business entities. This is an ethical issue and should be considered a red flag when hiring an SEO agency. You should run away as fast as you can from any SEO firm that guarantees to get your business to #1 ranking in a specified amount of time.
How long should I continue monthly SEO after I reach page one?
That is completely up to each individual business as we don’t put you in any contracts. When SEO is done the right way (no shortcuts), it is about building trust with the search engines by doing things the right way. If you get to the number one position in Google and immediately stop your SEO work you may stay a few weeks or a few years, but ultimately the more SEO work you have done the harder it is going to be for a competitor to come along and outrank you. After a few years of quality SEO work, this should become more like an impenetrable fortress because your site has so much trust and relevance with the search engines.
What type of businesses do you work with?
We work with all sorts of businesses as long as they are moral, ethical and legal. With that being said we do specialize in marketing for small and midsize service-based businesses.
Can you manage my website hosting?
Absolutely. We know that managing the web hosting is a hassle for most businesses and that is why we offer our own business class web hosting that starts at $19.95 per month.
Do you back up websites?
Yes, we offer one-time site and database backups. Also, our website hosting plans include nightly website backups at no extra charge.
Are there any types of business that you don’t work with?
As long as the business if moral, ethical and legal there is a good chance that we will work with your business.
