The best thing about being a search engine optimisation consultant is having the ability to put my content in front of the right audience when required.

For example, I know that anyone reading this has searched for a Professional SEO Consultant, and is likely looking for help with their Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

How do I know this?

Because I’ve purposely optimised this page to appear in Google when someone searches for that keyword phrase.

If you’ve ever wondered how to do that for your business or thought about investing in SEO services, keep reading.

In this article, we’ll take a look at the following:

Need help with your SEO?

As mentioned, you’re reading this page because you’ve asked Google to find search engine optimisation consultants to help with your website’s visibility online.

This not only demonstrates the power of SEO.

But how I have the expertise to help you do the same for your business.

I sometimes get asked to explain how SEO can bring value to a business.

And what better way than a working example such as this page.

It clearly demonstrates how increasing the visibility of your business for relevant search terms, can drive quality traffic to your website that’s more likely to convert to sales and revenue.

Now, imagine scaling this up to target not just 1 keyword, but 5, 10 or even 50!

If each of those keywords were searched 1000 times a month, that adds up to a lot of potential customers looking for your product or service.

Why am I telling you this?

For some people, SEO is viewed as a luxury and too complicated.

This is usually due to either a bad experience with a previous SEO agency or not understanding its true value – sometimes these are interlinked.

The truth is, when done right, SEO can be life-changing for both businesses and their owners.

It has the potential to provide more long-term value than any other form of marketing.

So, what’s causing these bad experiences and how can you avoid them?

You’ve heard the term, You only get out as much as you put in.

Well, these bad experiences usually stem from low-cost SEO services that undervalue this industry. 

How to AVOID Cheap SEO Packages in 2023

If the right amount of time and effort is not invested into a campaign, you cannot expect long-term results. A greater investment is more likely to acheive better results and a higher ROI

The amount of work needed to run a successful campaign is rarely explained to the client. Not to mention the level of expertise required.

Without realising, this low monthly cost creates a limit to the amount of time and work that can be produced each month. In most cases, it just isn’t enough.

Let’s do some maths!
If you signed up for a £250 per month SEO package:

How can we possibly expect results from this type of low-cost strategy?

What are the results of this?

You can usually expect some initial quick wins (increase in rankings), as Google notices an update to the page.

Then will follow an eventual plateau and continued fall-off of traffic and keyword rankings.

With a larger investment/monthly budget, there is potential for better results and a greater ROI as continued content and links can be created and acquired each month.

If not, keep reading as we explore a bit more about SEO and how working with a consultant or SEO strategist can help you.

First, let’s dot the i’s and cross the t’s.

What is an SEO Consultant?

An SEO Consultant is someone who specialises in improving a website’s ranking on Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs).

They can work individually or as part of an SEO consultancy.

They can also be referred to as a Freelance SEO consultant, or SEO Expert and offer a wide range of SEO consultancy services.

They achieve this through various techniques, such as improving the website’s content, structure, and link profile.

It’s important to note that a consultant is different from an agency.

An agency will have a team of people working on your account, whereas a consultant or strategist will usually work alone or with a few key specialists.

This does not mean that less work is being done or that results are slower to show.

In fact, my SEO process and the dedicated systems I have in place, allow me to work on many campaigns, whilst providing personalised services.

How can a Search Engine Optimisation consultant in Cumbria help your business?

There are many different things an SEO strategist can do to improve your website’s ranking.

In most cases, the first step should always be to conduct an audit.

This will give an overview of any issues that could be affecting its performance.

The more comprehensive the audit, the more opportunities you have to improve performance.

Once completed, they can begin to move on to the more common tasks, which can include:

  • Conduct Keyword Research to find the right keywords to target
  • Competitor Analysis to ensure you understand what they are doing and how you can improve on it
  • Find and correct Technical SEO issues that could be affecting your website’s performance
  • On-Page SEO to optimise your website’s title tags, meta descriptions, and internal linking
  • Targeting relevant keywords with high-quality content
  • Building links from high-quality authoritative websites

The results of these tasks form the SEO strategy which can be implemented on a monthly basis.

How to hire a Professional Consultant?

Investing in SEO can have a huge impact on your business.

However, like any investment, it’s not guaranteed and not always cheap.

So when it comes to finding and hiring a consultant that’s right for your business, here are a few things you should consider:

  1. First, understand what SEO success looks like to your business so you know what you want to achieve
  2. Find someone with past results
  3. Get to know them on a free consultation/discovery call, to see if you could work with them on a long-term basis. If you can find a local SEO consultant and meet face-to-face that’s even better!
  4. Ask how they work. How often are you updated?
  5. Agree upon any monthly deliverables
What to consider when hiring a SEO consultant

‘Local SEO Consultant near me’

It’s no surprise that ‘near me‘ is a popular addition to a search term like this.

Meeting face-to-face is so valuable when looking to grow a business.

Therefore searching for ‘SEO expert near me’ or ‘SEO specialist near me’, is usually the first choice.

Based in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, I work with businesses of all sizes across a range of industries and geographic locations.

From Architects to American candy suppliers, improving their organic search visibility and traffic.

Over the first 9 months, I was able to achieve a 4,678.10% increase in organic traffic, increasing monthly users from 306 to 14,621.
