The Small Business SEO Dilemma
I have several family members that own small local businesses like I do and I know first hand how difficult it can be to make ends meet. One could easily accuse me of being biased but I believe it should be a priority for every small business owner to invest in marketing their business on the web. In this present day, there is absolutely no other alternative or better way to advertise your business then doing it online. If you invest in harnessing the power of the web, you can and will drive new clients to your website which will convert to more sales and additional revenue. Literally, this type of advertising can pay for itself. Many small business owners believe they can’t afford it but in reality, they can’t afford not to take advantage of internet marketing.
I have a heart for small businesses and I really do like helping new or struggling businesses to succeed. In order for me to take a small business to where it needs to be online involves a lot of my own company’s time and work. Honestly, we are talking $1000 to $1500 a month is the normal rate for the kind of SEO work we do. However, the majority of small business owners I know, can not afford that. Usually their internet marketing budget is normally around $300 to $500 a month. So how do I help another small business succeed without running my own in to the ground? Most of my consultants and advisers suggest that I just ignore the smaller business with low budgets and go after the middle sized businesses with deeper pockets.
I struggle with this dilemma a lot but it is in my blood to root for the underdog, to help those who can not help themselves. I decided to put together a package for local business to help them succeed and dominate their niche on the web. It begins with a $500 setup fee which allows us to get their website optimized for the search engines, create several mini-sites, increase exposure across social networks and create profiles on local search websites. When the client is ready to pull the trigger, we will begin a monthly SEO campaign at $500 a month. The package targets the organic results for a specific city including local and organic results. It includes 5 keywords and we guarantee that we will get 4 out of the 5 keywords on Page 1 of Google. We have been extremely successful with getting our clients on top of Google-Page 1 as well.
This is an extremely competitive rate for Search Engine Optimization and it is really the best that I can do. I hope you will take advantage of it. Give us a call and we will get started today!
